It appears that Motorola has a full year ahead, that is in terms of smartphone releases -- well at least according to tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass. The famous leaker has recently got hold of an image that portrays a presentation showing Lenovo’s smartphone plans for the rest of 2017. Based on the leaked picture, it appears that the Chinese tech giant is readying to launch at least nine handsets in the next few months.
Recently this week, online retailing giant Amazon announced that it was further expanding the list of discounted mobile devices under its Prime Exclusive Phones program by adding a couple more smartphones to the roster.
The annual Mobile World Congress is the world’s biggest conference for everything mobile, and this year’s event has brought another generous helping of new smartphones. Here are some of the handsets worth checking out.
This week, Motorola officially announced the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus. Both of these devices come in sleek metal and glass design, which sees Motorola depart from the mostly plastic design of past Moto offerings. And while the bigger Moto G5 Plus has a non-removable battery, the smaller Moto G5’s can be removed.
Fresh from relaunching its unlimited data option, Verizon Wireless is now taking full advantage of the momentum to introduce a new trade in deal targeted to those looking to sign up for its Verizon Unlimited plan for the first time.
Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, were released preinstalled with the tech giant’s own Android 7.1 Nougat, a pretty standard update but still one that came with new features.
Part of what makes Motorola’s Moto Z line of smartphones so cool are the Mods, and recently, the phone maker has decided to unveil a couple of new additions to the magnetic modules. Meet the new 3,000 mAh Mophie JuicePack, which comes with a USB Type C port for independent charging, priced at $80, and a car dock (made in collaboration with Incipio) that allows users to charge their Moto Z handsets and at the same time open mobile apps (sort of like Google’s Android Auto).
By way of a recent blog post, Motorola has revealed that two of its newest smartphone offerings -- the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force -- will have the honor of being the first devices not made by Google to have support for Daydream, the search giant’s virtual reality (VR) platform.
This year, it appears that mobile virtual network operator Republic Wireless is not too keen on Black Friday. Instead, the carrier will be unleashing Taco Tuesday, which will see the MVNO offer a range of special deals November 29th (the Tuesday right after Black Friday, hence the name). It might turn out to be a wise decision, especially for somebody like Republic Wireless, who might be better off choosing its battles carefully.
