Google has very recently revealed that the Android One powered edition of Motorola’s newest smartphone, the Moto X4, is now made available for preordering from the official website of its Project Fi wireless service. For those not familiar with Android One, it is essentially a super basic version of the world’s most widely used mobile operating system, which means it does not come with the usual bloatware added not only by phone makers but also by mobile operators.
The Essential Phone can now be purchased from Sprint outlets across the United States. Soon after the device was first unveiled by Andy Rubin’s startup firm Essential Products back in May earlier this year, Sprint had acquired the exclusive carrier rights to sell the handset (at least in America; in Canada, that honor goes to Telus). Sprint is selling the Essential Phone for $14.58 per month, with zero down payment, over a period of 18 months.
Android founder Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone is finally shipping to its first customers this week (as sort of promised earlier). Essential Products had taken the opportunity to confirm that fact by way of a post on Twitter. The company also made sure to offer a reminder to these first customers to watch out for tracking data sent out through email.
Back in March, Andy Rubin revealed that he was working on an Android phone under his new company, Essential. The Essential Phone was unveiled to the public as a top tier device with a 5.7 inch display and a nearly edge to edge screen. The smartphone runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 128 gigabytes of onboard storage. What is neat about this phone is that it features magnetic modules that snap a 360 degree camera into place, along with other Essential made accessories.
Mainly because of their size and specs, phablets are not always that budget friendly. ZTE, however, has been releasing affordable big screen smartphone devices since about a couple of years ago. Sure, the brand is not as popular as Samsung or LG, but for those who do not mind exploring all available options, ZTE’s phablet offerings are actually not bad, especially for their price.
There actually was a time when wireless carriers released their own branded cell phones as a way of differentiating themselves from the rest of the competition. But fast forwarding to the late 2010s, that model may not be that popular anymore. Still, that has not stopped T-Mobile from going ahead and launching its own branded Android powered mobile device.
It is official -- Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Active will be formally launching this coming Friday, August 11th, and those interested in purchasing the device ca now pre-order it from AT&T. The tougher version of the South Korean phone maker’s best selling Galaxy S8 flagship offerings will be made available in a couple of color options -- namely titanium gold and meteor gray.
OnePlus has recently announced this week that it is launching a Soft Gold limited edition of its latest smartphone offering, the OnePlus 5. As a limited edition release, the Soft Gold OnePlus 5 will only be made available in select quantities, and unfortunately, the Chinese phone maker did not exactly make clear just how many units are expected to be released.
During the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that was held back in January early this year, Asus had generated some buzz with the debut of its ZenFone AR smartphone. In the seven months since it was first unveiled, nobody quite really knew how much the Android powered phablet would cost. Well, those looking to purchase the device will be delighted to know that the handset can now be bought exclusively from the biggest wireless carrier in America.
After some teasing from Motorola about a couple of weeks ago, the phone maker has finally and formally unveiled the latest addition to its Moto Z lineup of smartphones -- the Moto Z2 Force. But on top of this new smartphone announcement, an even more intriguing piece of news is the fact that the company appears to be expanding its strategy in selling its newest handset offering.
