LG G7 is a new smartphone that we will see coming out soon. It has leaked and we could see that it will feature a notch at the top. Same as the iPhone X design had! I think LG officially posted on Reddit asking what people thought about the notch and they disliked it and then LG removed the post… Here is the rumored specs.
Main specs: 6.0 inch Display, IPS LCD type, 1440×2880 pixels, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen protection, LG UX, Always-on Display, Android 8.0 Oreo, Snapdragon 845 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4x 2.7GHz Kryo 385 and 4x 1.7GHz Kryo 385, Adreno 630 GPU, microSD card up to 400GB, 128GB Internal storage, 6GB of RAM, Dual 16MP with F1.5, Secondary 8MP camera, 2160p recording at 30fps and Bluetooth 5.0!
The USB type is suppose to be 3.1 according to the rumors with Type-C 1.0. With USB On-The-Go support! Other epic things are wireless charge support same as iPhone X. The battery on the other hand seems to be a bit small with only 3000mAh! Would prefer to see above 3500mAh for a high-end flagship Android device.
The four colours this phone will come in is Black, Gold, Blue and White. Which is pretty standard colours. I would love to have seen a red edition as well. The fingerprint sensor is rear mounted. Which I think is the best location. The second best location would be on the side I would say.
One main thing here that is going to be the best is how it comes with IP68 certification that makes it dust and water proof up to 1.5m for 30 mins. This is the most famous water rating for phones. In terms of thickness it is 8.2mm .
Asus ZenFone 5 Lite is a new smartphone that comes in the mid-range price range. Asus the last couple of years have made many phones focusing on the camera. Same with this variant.
Main specs: 6.0 Inch Full HD+ Display, IPS screen type, 2160×1080 pixels, 80.3% screen to body ratio, 3.5mm earphone port, Android 8 Oreo with ASUS ZenUI 5 skin, Snapdragon 630 Chipset, 14nm, 64-Bit Octa-Core Processor, Adreno 508 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, TF Card support up to 2TB and Metal shell build!
The front facing camera on Asus ZenFone 5 Lite comes with a 20MP lens and with a 120 degree wide-angle camera. This is great for taking group selfies. The two other things you get here is gyro EIS and LED Flash.
The Dual Back camera comes with 16MP and 120 degree wide-angle camera. The video recording that you get is supporting 4K UHD video.
Other nice things with this smartphone is how it comes with support for NFC so you could do mobile payments. You also could find a fingerprint scanner on this phone for easy fast unlock. You even could find Face Recognition! The battery size on this phone is 3300mAh! It’s a built in battery with non removable battery. This phone is pretty slim with just 7.75mm thickness.
I really enjoy how the USB connector on Asus ZenFone 5 Lite is Type-C variant. The net weight is not too much either only 168 grams! The fast charge that it currently supports is 5V 2A with 10W! There is three different colours you could get this phone in one is Black another White and the last one is Red.
The display on the front reminds me a bit about the LG G6 smartphone! Really clean look. Asus usually takes very good care of the software experience by making it fast and making good quality apps for you to use. Just as Samsung do with their Android experience.
Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design is a premium new smartphone. Let’s take a look at what it gives you. This is one of my favourite new mobile manufacturer companies at the moment.
Main specs: 6.0 inch Display, AMOLED screen type, 1440×2880 pixels, Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1 on top, Kirin 970 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4x 2.4GHz Cortex-A73 and 4x 1.8GHz Cortex-A53, Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, No card slot, 256/512GB Internal storage phone and 6GB of RAM!
But the main thing that is the most amazing is how this phone comes with a main Triple camera! It features 40MP + 20MP + 8MP lens! This is super impressive I have never seen a phone with this setup in the past. The three apertures are F1.8 + F1.6 + F2.4! Of course this will boost up the price so it will only be a phone for people with wealth!
The secondary camera comes with a 24MP lens! It has a more standard F2.0 and 1080p video recording! In terms of Bluetooth it’s a bit sad this phone lacks Bluetooth 5.0 and only comes with 4.2.
The battery is pretty big as well with 4000mAh! But it’s a non-removable battery. This phone comes in 2 colour editions Black and Red. The price will be around 1600 euros. Which is like buying two iPhone 8! The USB connector is 2.0 Type C. You don’t get any 3.5mm jack which is very sad at this price range.
Not too thick phone just 8.5mm and the weight is 183 grams with IP67 certification which makes it dust and water resistant up to 1m for 30 mins. This is also a Hybrid Dual SIM phone! The fingerprint sensor is located at the rear side!
Vernee M6 is a new smartphone that comes with an iPhone like rounded design.
Main specs: 5.7 inch Display, 720×1440 pixels screen, 18:9 aspect ratio, Android 7.0 Nougat, MT6750C Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU clocked at 520MHz, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, Micro SD card support up to 128GB, 4G VoLTE support, Dual SIM Dual Standby support and 3.5mm earphone port!
Front camera on Vernee M6 is having 13.0MP lens with the GC8024W sensor and 4P lens. The back camera comes with 16.0MP and the OV13855 sensor with 5P lens.
One thing that is amazing about this device is how it comes with a notification LED. But the Bluetooth edition is only 4.0. Sadly not many smartphones seems to be quick to adopt the latest Bluetooth 5.0 technology.
Other nice things in here is OTA updates, OTG support and fingerprint scanner. 3300mAh battery that is built-in. Quick charging is supported with 5V/2A. This is a very thin device with 7.65mm thickness.
The front camera comes with the famous Beauty effect. But my favourite thing is the genuine slimness. Something not many new phones have. Would love to see more phones below 6mm in thickness.
On front side below the display on Vernee M6 there is also very little dead space. So it creates a nice overall symmetry. The screen may be a bit too big for many. Would love to see more 4.3 inch devices enter the market again. But the demand still seems to be there for big screen phones.
Vernee has proven itself in the past to be able to produce many amazing low cost Android phones. These days you could spend below 200 dollars and get an amazing Android experience. A few years ago this wasn’t possible. But the cost to produce new phones are going down.
Oukitel U22 is a new cheap smartphone that is great for a person that is just starting out in the Android space. It cost around the same amount as a Nokia 3310 successor edition!
Main specs: 5.5″ HD IPS Display, 1280×720 pixels screen, 2 Points multi touch, Android 7.0 Nougat, MT6580A Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, Mali-400 MP2 GPU clocked at 200MHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage and TF card support up to 32GB!
The front facing camera on Oukitel U22 has 5MP + 2MP lens! And the rear camera also comes with dual but it has 8.0MP + 2.0MP! Another good thing is the fingerprint ID sensor and a detachable battery with 2700mAh! Usually in the Android space you do not even get removable batteries 2018.
This phone is pretty thick with 9.6mm thickness dimensions. Another downside is that it doesn’t come with any 4G data speeds. But it support Dual SIM Dual Standby. The two colours variants that exist are Black and White.
It’s nice that it has Android 7.0 Nougat it’s not the latest Android 8.1 Oreo but still fairly new Android release. On the rear side there is a good distance between the fingerprint sensor and rear camera so you won’t confuse the two. The camera design is same as on iPhone 7 Plus.
Another thing with Oukitel U22 is that it comes with 3 capacitive touch buttons on the front below the display. Something that many other companies are removing and instead starting to use on-screen keys.
The screen have a 2.5D curve. It even comes with a metal frame which is something we usually doesn’t see on mega cheap devices like this one! Very elegant phone for the low price that you pay.
Especially they managed to make so the fingerprint sensor looked very modern.
