Huawei already invited us to a March 27th event, where it is expected to unveil its next flagship – the P20 – and its P20 Plus and P20 Lite sidekicks, as has become its habit in the last few years. What piqued our interest in the first leaked renders and images of the devices, is that one of them, dubbed to be a prototype, showed a very iPhone X-esque cutout at the top bezel, and a vertical dual camera set on the back, again resembling Apple’s finest handset for the season.
Unveiled last year, Google’s Android Go platform is meant to allow users who can’t afford expensive smartphones to benefit from the same Android experience using cheap devices. In order for that to work, many Google apps need to be optimized to run on smartphones with less RAM.
That’s how the so-called “Go” apps appeared last year. Maps Go, YouTube Go, and now Gboard Go are lite versions of their full-fledged counterparts. While some of them are available for download via Google Play Store, the new Gboard Go app hasn’t been listed there yet.
However, it appears that Google is rolling …
The Huawei Mate 10 Lite is a mid-range phone sold across the globe (but not in the United States) as the more affordable sibling to the high-end Mate 10 series.
The phone features a 2:1 screen – one that’s taller than traditional 16:9 screens we used to see on virtually every new phone until about last year. It is built of solid metal and it runs on Huawei’s own Emotion UI interface on top of Android 7.0 Nougat. The Mate 10 Lite also has a dual camera system on both the front and the back, with a 2-megapixel secondary camera on both sides that allows shooting photos …
The next ZenFone series seems to be closer than we have expected. After delaying the ZenFone 4 smartphones for several months last year, Asus plans to shorten the time span between new releases.
According to Asus’ CEO Jerry Shen, we should expect the first ZenFone 5 smartphones to be unveiled as early as March. However, it’s unclear whether they will be announced at MWC (Mobile World Congress) or during a dedicated event later on.
Either way, it looks like the Asus ZenFone 5 series is almost ready for prime time since the first device has just been certified …
Huawei has just announced the launch of its new EMUI 8.0 user interface, which is based on Android Oreo. The new UI already comes pre-loaded on the Honor View 10 and the upcoming Honor 9 Lite.
However, a handful of other smartphones will receive EMUI 8.0 via OTA update, including the Honor 8 Pro, Honor 8 Lite, Honor 9i, and Honor 7X, Huawei recently confirmed.
Huawei has decided to jump from EMUI 5.1 to 8.0 to avoid any confusions related to the version of Android which is based upon. EMUI 8.0 brings lots of new features and improvements in addition to what’s …
Honor 9 Lite was at the Chinese regulatory commission about a week ago, so today’s announcement might not be a total surprise for some of you who’ve read our previous report. However, we now have more information on the phone’s price and availability, in case you’re considering buying one.
As the title says, the Honor 9 Lite is one of the not so many mid-range Android smartphones that features an 18:9 aspect ratio display. The 5.65-inch screen with full HD+ resolution is probably one of the phone’s selling points.
Furthermore, Honor’s new handset comes with dual-camera setup, so you’ll …
Honor made headlines in the last few days, as the Chinese company prepares to update some of its smartphones to Android Oreo. We’re now bringing you more information about an unreleased device that’s likely to be introduced very soon – the Honor 9 Lite.
The smartphone was recently spotted at TENAA, the Chinese regulatory agency, so at least we know what the Honor 9 Lite looks. First off, it’s worth mentioning this is a mid-range Android smartphone that comes with a dual-camera setup and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Also, rumor has it, Honor 9 Lite will …
