Moto G6 lineup
Motorola recently unveiled its Moto G6 lineup of smartphones. There are three devices in the lineup – Moto G6, Moto G6 Play, and Moto G6 Plus.
All the three devices run on pure Android 8.0 Oreo and have a bezel-less display. The devices will be available starting from the first week of May.
The Moto G6 Plus is the most high-end device in the family. The device has a 5.9-inch IPS display giving out a resolution of 1080p+ and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset coupled with 4GB/6GB of RAM.
Moto E5 lineup
Along with the Moto G6 lineup, Motorola launched the affordable Moto E5 series of devices as well. As with the G6 family, the E5 series also has three devices – Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus, and Moto E5 Play.
All the devices in the Moto E5 family are going to be launched in the coming months (the company did not specify a specific timeframe for the launch yet) and will run pure Android 8.0 Oreo.
The devices feature a great set of specifications at a much affordable price. Starting off with the Moto E5 Plus, the device comes with a 5,000 mAh battery with support for Quick Charging.
At the display front, the Moto E5 Plus has a 6-inch IPS LCD Display, the Moto E5 has a smaller 5.7-inch display, and the Moto E5 Play has a 5.2-inch unit.
ZTE Nubia Z18
ZTE is soon going to launch a new smartphone dubbed the ZTE Nubia Z18. The device recently appeared on TENAA, thereby revealing some of its specifications.
Starting off, the device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM. There would be an 8GB variant of the device as well. Coming to the internal storage, the device will have either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage which can further be expanded with the help of an external SD card.
Coming to the display, the Nubia Z18 is going to feature a 5.99-inch display with Full HD resolution. Strangely, the device is going to have a considerable amount of bezels both on the forehead as well as the chin. This is rather surprising considering the fact that the Nubia Z18 mini has a bezel-less display.
ZTE Nubia Red Magic
Gaming phones are becoming a trend lately. Following the likes of the Razor phone and XIaomi’s Black Shark gaming phones, ZTE is also planning to launch a new smartphone dubbed the ZTE Nubia Red Magic.
According to the sources, the Nubia Red Magic will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with up to 8GB of RAM. It will also sport four built-in fans and a new air-cooled heat dissipation technology.
Huawei has finally launched the Honor 10. The company put the device on pre-order the moment it unveiled it and that’s a pretty good thing because the users now won’t have to wait for those annoying flash sales in order to get their hands on the phone.
Starting things off with the display, the Honor 10 has a 5.84-inch Full HD+ screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch at the top giving out a resolution of 1,080 x 2,280 pixels and a pixel density of 423 pixels per inch. Just like the View 10, the fingerprint scanner sits at the chin of the Honor 10 as well.
Powering the device is a Kirin 970 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
