Huawei is going to launch the Huawei Honor Note 10 soon. Recent reports suggest that the device will be launched in a special Rolls Royce edition as well.
The Honor Note 10 Rolls Royce edition will come in a Mirror Silver color with the Rolls Royce logo engraved at the rear, just below the camera and the fingerprint scanner. As seen in the image, the special edition looks absolutely premium. The glossy rear has curved edges which would make it easier to hold. The image also confirms a bunch of the specifications which were leaked a little while ago.
Huawei is going to launch the Honor 9N during a launch event on July 24. The device is going to be the international variant of the previously launched Honor 9i.
As far as the specifications are concerned, we are going to get a 5.84-inch IPS LCD FHD+ display giving out a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and a 19:9 aspect ratio. There is a notch at the top of the display which houses the front camera and the device’s sensors.
Alcatel has launched its latest flagship smartphone dubbed the Alcatel 5V. The device carries a decent price tag of $199, making it one of the best choices when it comes to budget-friendly smartphones with powerful specifications and features.
Starting things off with the display, the Alcatel 5V sports a 6.2-inch display giving out a resolution of 1500 x 720 pixels. The device manages to keep a screen-to-body ratio of 88%, thanks to the notch at the top of the display.
BlackBerry Evolve and BlackBerry Evolve X
We all have patiently been waiting for the BlackBerry Ghost and the BlackBerry Ghost Pro devices to be launched. The company has been silent for a while now and we are not sure as to when the devices will be launched.
This, however, has not stopped the famous tipster Evan Blass from bringing out the latest news. As per Blass, the BlackBerry Ghost is apparently going to be dubbed the BlackBerry Evolve whereas the BlackBerry Ghost will be called the BlackBerry Evolve X.
Vivo has launched a new entry-level smartphone dubbed the Vivo Y71iin India. The device is a further trimmed-down version of the Vivo Y71 which was launched a couple of months ago.
Starting things off with the display, the Vivo Y71i sports a 5.99-inch FullView HD+ display giving out a resolution of 1,440 x 720 pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio. There is a considerable chin and forehead at the front.
Huawei Nova 3i
Huawei finally launched the mid-range Huawei Nova 3i smartphone. The device is kept at an asking price of $300/€260. Taking into consideration the price, the specifications of the device are simply amazing.
Starting things off with the display, the Huawei Nova 3 sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. There is a notch at the top of the display which houses a dual camera setup (24MP + 2MP) and the device’s sensors.
BlackBerry Luna (BlackBerry KEY2 Lite)
BlackBerry is reportedly working on launching a new smartphone dubbed the BlackBerry Luna AKA the BlackBerry KEY2 Lite. The device will have trimmed down specifications when compared with the BlackBerry KEY2 while keeping the same form factor.
The famous tipster Evan Blass has recently revealed in one of his tweets that the device will be launched in three color variants – Red, Blue, and Copper.
HMD Global has finally taken the wraps off their latest mid-range smartphone dubbed the Nokia X5 or the Nokia 5.1 Plus. As predicted earlier, the most of the specifications which were leaked have made their way to the final product and we have got a decent mid-range Android device.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3
Xiaomi finally unveiled its third generation Max smartphone dubbed the Xiaomi Mi Max 3. Starting things off with the display which happens to be the USP of the Mi Max 3, we get a massive 6.9-inch Full HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The Mi Max 3 is the first device in the Mi Max lineup to sport a bezel-less display. The device measures 176.15 x 87.4 x 7.99 mm and weighs in at 221 grams. The weight might appear to be a bit too much, but considering the humongous screen size, we could not expect anything lesser than this.
Oppo F9 lineup
Oppo is reportedly working on launching the Oppo F9 and the Oppo F9 Pro soon. The company has recently posted a new teaser image which reveals some of the key highlights of the Oppo F9.
