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.

Well, a very credible leakster with a proven track record, has now created CAD-based …

Whew, finally a budget handset with the trendy 2:1 aspect ratio screen that is smaller than 6 inches!

Google launches lite version of Gboard, but only for Android 8.1 devices with low RAM

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 …

Huawei Mate 10 Lite Review

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 …

Asus ZenFone 5 Lite appears online, it could have Qualcomm chipset and 6-inch display

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 …
