On June 3rd, the sub-brand of Huawei, a division of Honor, has scheduled a large presentation, which included two new smartphones. They all belong to the same lineup - Honor Play. The company showed Honor Play 4 with 5G and Pro version of the device. The novelties received advanced basic cameras, productive hardware, as well as one feature - a high-precision temperature sensor. The latest innovation is especially relevant in a pandemic, when for greater safety it is desirable to change the body temperature from time to time. In this case, the sensor can accurately determine the temperature of other things, so that in the home it will be a lot of good.
Honor Play 4 (5G) - Overview and features
The first thing to say is that Honor Play 4 5G has no function of measuring body temperature. Although earlier rumours had it that all models would receive a similar sensor, in fact it turned out to be a Pro version of Play 4.
The smartphone looks little different from the more advanced version offers a stylish 6.81-inch frameless screen with Full HD+ resolution. Type of sensor IPS, and the front camera is located in the cutout in the upper left corner. The display refresh rate is 60 Hz, but the touch panel response rate has been increased to 120 Hz. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the side edge so as not to spoil the view of the back cover.
The gadget has chipset Mediatek Dimensity 800, similar in performance Huawei Kirin 810. Its linked the fact that U.S. has increased sanctions against Huawei and it will no longer be able to produce branded chips at TSMC facilities. Therefore, in order not to have problems with Kirin 810 shortage in the future it was decided to use Dimensity 800. However, this is not a disadvantage, as the brainchild of Mediatek is not only powerful, but also energy efficient. The processor includes Cortex-A77 and Cortex-A55 cores with maximum clock frequency up to 2.6 GHz, as well as high-performance Mali-G77 MP9 graphics that pull all modern games on high graphics settings. That is, with this "iron" smartphone definitely corresponds to the range of Play.
Honor 4 Play, thanks to its chipset, also received a 5G modem, the device has 6 GB to 8 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB on the internal drive. It has a battery capacity of 4,300 mAh and is claimed to support fast wired charging up to 22.5 watts. Finally, the smartphone camera configuration offers the following sensors: 64 MP with f/1.89, 8 MP wide angle sensor with f/2.2, 2 MP macro camera with f/2.4 and 2 MP depth of field sensor with f/2.4.
Honor Play 4 Pro - Flagship overview and characteristics
As for this model, it is already a flagship, and all because of the use of top chipset Huawei Kirin 990. Although externally there are practically no differences from the younger model, some details in the smartphone give it a premium. First of all, it's dimensions. The novelty is less assembled because of the reduced to 6.57 inches screen, and also offers a double front camera, similar to the one located in the neckline in the upper left corner.
Although the display is smaller, its resolution was decided not to change, leaving the previous 2400 x 1080 dots. The same was done with the refresh rate, leaving the usual 60 Hz. The Kirin 990 processor is the most advanced solution from Huawei, with power close to the Snapdragon 865. The Baron 500 modem is in charge of 5th generation networks. At the same time, the gadget is equipped with 8/128 GB of memory (UFS 3.1 + LPDDR4X), as well as NFC module, which is not in the younger model.
Fingerprint scanner in the novelty is placed on the side edge, and an infrared sensor for measuring the temperature on the rear panel next to the main cameras. Honor Play 4 Pro will be sold with or without a temperature sensor. Measurement accuracy is 0.1 degrees Celsius and operating temperatures from -20 to +100 degrees. A 4200 mAh battery paired with a 40 Watt fast charge has also been announced.
The last one is the cameras. Unlike the younger model, here the main unit of the photomodule consists of two sensors for 40 MP (Sony IMX600 RYYB-sensor) and 8 MP telephoto lens (3x optical zoom m 30x digital).
Honor Play 4 (5G) and Play 4 Pro - release date and price
So, not two, but three smartphones will come on sale: Honor 4 Play with a 5G modem, Honor Play 4 Pro with an IR temperature sensor, and Play 4 Pro without temperature measurement technology. When the novelties will appear on sale in Russia, they are not yet publicized, and in China they can be ordered from June 12. The cost of smartphones in China also became known:
- Honor Play 4 5G (6/128 GB) - from $ 253;
- Honor Play 4 5G (8/128 GB) - from 281 dollars;
- Honor Play 4 Pro without IR sensor - from $408;
- Honor Play 4 Pro with infrared sensor for 422 dollars and more.Please Subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on FB or IG and get notified of our promotions and new launches!
Few days ago was an announcement, during which two companies Xiaomi and Mediatek shared some interesting news. The first news is the introduction of the Mediatek Dimensity 820, a sub-family flagship processor. The second - based on this chip first smartphone Redmi 10X will be released, which will open a new line of gadgets subbrand Redmi. In today's article we want to introduce you not only the upcoming smartphone, which will be officially introduced in a week, but also to tell you more about the latest chip from Mediatek, which is 300% smarter than Snapdragon 765G.
Redmi 10X - preliminary review
The new smartphone from Redmi is not just another novelty, but a device that opens a new line of gadgets. What is the reason for the index "X" in the name so far nobody knows, there is no information on this subject, but there is a suggestion that now this index will mean the presence of processors from Mediatek in smartphones. That is, we will also see the familiar Redmi 10 and Redmi Note 10 in 2020, only they will be based on Snapdragon chips.
Redmi 10X will be released very soon and it will be the first device with the latest Mediatek Dimensity 820 on board. The processor is very powerful and despite the fact that it should compete with the Snapdragon 765G, but practically the chip from Mediatek is more productive than the American opponent, and significantly.
It's also known that Redmi 10X will get a large 6.57-inch OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution, a 48 MP main camera (and three more sensors), a 4420 mAh battery and memory from 6/64 GB to 8/256 GB. On sale the smartphone should appear in four interesting colors: lilac, gold, silver and sea wave colors.
According to the design it should be said that there are no special differences from Redmi Note 9 Pro. Redmi 10X similarly has an ATV camera enclosed in a rectangular platform in the center of the rear panel, an opening in the display for the front camera, and the body is similarly made of glass and metal. In both smartphones, the back cover has the same rounded edges on the sides.
Redmi 10X - details on Mediatek Dimensity 820 processor
The Dimensity 820 is not a top-of-the-line chipset from Mediatek and is on par with the Snapdragon 765G, or even an updated version of the Snapdragon 768G. However, the Taiwan processor is much more productive than the U.S. competitor, as evidenced not only by Mediatek's own graphics, but also by Antutu benchmark data. Thus, if Snapdragon 765G scores up to 310,000 points, and 768G is 20% more powerful (in theory, up to 380,000 points), Dimensity 820 easily achieves 415,000 points.
When comparing the Dimensity 820 with the Snapdragon 765G in the GeekBench 4.2 benchmark, the results are astounding. In single-core mode, "Taiwanese" is 7% more powerful, while in multi-core mode it exceeds "American" by 37%. That's not all - if you take applications sharpened for artificial intelligence, the gap here is 300%, and in favor of Dimensity 820!
As for the processor itself: it is based on a 7-nm processor and includes four powerful Cortex-A76 cores in the upper block and the same number of energy efficient Cortex-A55 cores in the lower block. The maximum clock frequency is 2.6 GHz, and the Mali-G57 MC5 video core is responsible for graphics acceleration.
Also, a feature of the chipset is not just support for 5G networks, and work in 5-th generation networks with two SIM cards at once. We add a variety of technologies such as HyperEngine 2.0 (network optimization during gamaming), support for displays with an update rate of up to 120 Hz, low power consumption and get the ideal inexpensive chip for budget smartphones.
Redmi 10X - when the smartphone and its price will be released
The official presentation of the gadget is due on May 26. On it Redmi will tell about all chips of the new smartphone, as well as demonstrate the work of Dimensity in real conditions. The cost of the device is not disclosed yet, but since we are dealing with the processor from Mediatek, the cost of Redmi 10X will obviously be lower than the cost of any device running on Snapdragon 765G. It means that we will get a cheaper analogue of Redmi Note 9 Pro, at the same time winning in performance.
This is great news, because at lower cost users will get more advanced technology, higher power, and the Snapdragon monopoly in the mobile chipset industry will be destroyed.Please Subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on FB or IG and get notified of our promotions and new launches!
The other day something happened that many people were waiting for - two flagship companies from Meizu were presented. The novelties called Meizu 17 and 17 Pro were very similar to each other with little, but still a difference. The devices really much-anticipated and the fact that the first batch of flagships were bought in just a minute, only confirms the interest of users. The Meizu 17 and 17 Pro turned out to be interesting, somewhat innovative - at least with the design they are excellent and have their own zest. So let's take a closer look at the gadgets that came out.
Meizu 17 and 17 Pro - Flagship design.
Now that some brands are still riveting old-fashioned smartphones with a vertical camera unit, and 98% of the others mimic Apple in one way or another, Meizu is going its own way. Many people, looking at the devices, can say that the company borrowed last year's design from Samsung and will be right, but only partly. Yes, yes, the Meizu 17 and 17 Pro have found a unit with the main cameras, located horizontally, and this is all that unites the released smartphones with Samsung devices of the past years. Now Samsung also imitates Apple, but Meizu has nothing in common with merchants. The area with the cameras looks great in the novelties, unique and does not copy anything, so that no other mobile devices Meizu 17-series will not be confused exactly. That's definitely a plus.
Nothing new in the front - a frameless display and a camera for selfies, located in the hole in the upper right corner of the screen - its diameter is only 3 mm. However, it is nothing new for others, and for fans of Meizu a fresh sip as earlier the module of the selfi-camera the company had in the top tiny frame. To sum up: it was great then, and now. As for the cabinet materials, there's really nothing new here: the glass in the front and back and the aluminium frame in the middle. The only thing worth noting is that the back of the Meizu 17 Pro is made of ceramic. There are four colours: green, white, black and grey.
The Meizu 17 and 17 Pro are smartphone features.
If you take two devices and look at them, it is unlikely that anyone will notice the difference in appearance. The essence of the Pro-version is that it was equipped with a little more memory, a little different set of cameras and everything like that. That's why we decided to dwell on the characteristics of the Pro-version in more detail, and then to clarify the difference between the usual Meizu 17 modification and it.
Meizu 17 Pro - specifications
- Screen: AMOLED Matrix, 6.6 inches, Full HD+ resolution (2340x1080), brightness 700 nits and peak up to 1100 nits, contrast 2000000:1, 100% DCI-P3 display format 20:9, support for Always-On Display and HDR10+, update rate 90 Hz and touch layer sampling rate up to 180 Hz, useful area 92%;
- Chipset: 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 with up to 2.84 GHz, Kryo 585 cores, 7 nm process, 64 bits, mEngine 3.0 coprocessor;
- Video accelerator: Adreno 650 with up to 587 MHz;
- Operation: 8 GB LPDDR4X or 12 GB LPDDR5, with frequencies up to 2133 and 2750 MHz respectively;
- Drive: 128/256GB UFS 3.1;
- Memory Cards: None;
- 5G NSA and SA networking and 4G LTE Cat.20 support - loads over 2 Gbps;
- SIM: nano-SIM + nano-SIM (hybrid slot), Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS);
- Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, USB Type-C;
- Navigation: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou;
- Main camera: four sensors, 64 megapixels (Sony IMX686 1/1.7", 1.6 μm (4-in-1), OIS, f/1.8) + 8 megapixels (telephoto, f/2.4) with 3x optical and 8x hybrid zoom + 32 megapixels (width, f/2.2, 0.8 μm, viewing angle 129 degrees) + 3D ToF sensor, 6 LED backlight;
- Self-camera: 20 MP with f/2.2;
- Sensors: approximation, illumination, accelerometer, optical fingerprint scanner under the screen, vibromotor with 4D haptic response;
- Sound: stereo speakers;
- Battery: 4500 mAh, Li-Ion, non-replaceable, fast 36W, wireless 27W, reversible 10W BZ;
- OS: Android 10 + FlyMe 9 shell;
- Dimensions: 160 x 77.2 x 8.5 mm;
- Weight: 219 grams.
And now let's clarify the difference between the Meizu 17:
- The smartphone has no more than 8 GB RAM standard LPDDR4X;
- Instead of the TV camera the device was equipped with a 12 MP portrait camera with f/1.9, the resolution of the wide-angle module was reduced to 8 MP with a viewing angle of 118 degrees, and instead of a depth sensor 5 MP macro camera is used;
- No wireless charging in the smartphone, and wired power is reduced to 30 W;
- Weight of the smartphone is 199 grams.
Of all the above, the Meizu 17 Pro is the most interesting camera at the moment. I wonder how well the 3x optical zoom works and is the 8x hybrid zoom ready to compete with the 10x hybrid zoom of its competitors?
Meizu 17 and 17 Pro - comparison with Meizu 16s Pro
Let's briefly compare how much progress the company has made regarding the last flagship Meizu 16s Pro. The first thing that catches your eye is the disappearing top frame above the display. If the 16th series of devices looked symmetrical, now in gadgets Meizu there was only a tiny bottom "chin". Behind changes concern only the location of the main camera, it was vertical, and also the size of the block itself with photo modules.
There are much more differences in the characteristics. The Meizu 16s Pro has a powerful, but still losing its relevance Snapdragon 855 Plus, no support for 5G networks, a smaller display of 6.22 inches, which, in addition, is also weaker in terms of characteristics. It has less coverage of the color space DCI-P3 (96%) and, accordingly, worse color rendering, 2 times lower contrast and almost the same amount of brightness of the matrix.
In Meizu 16s Pro uses an outdated photo matrix IMX586 for 48 MP, there are 20 MP camera with only 2x zoom and 16 MP width, but the depth sensor is not available and to make a high-quality photo with the side of the smartphone without approaching it is simply impossible.
Finally, last year's flagship has a battery capacity of only 3600 mAh, and fast charging reaches a power of 24 W. That's without considering the fact that wireless charging is out of the question at all.
Meizu 17 and 17 Pro - release date and price
In China, the devices went on sale on May 11. Their cost is as follows:
- Meizu 17 by 8/128 GB - from 523 dollars;
- Meizu 17 by 8/256GB - from 565 dollars;
- The Meizu 17 on 8/128GB for $607;
- Meizu 17 by 12/256 GB - from 664 dollars.Please Subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on FB or IG and get notified of our promotions and new launches!
On April 27, Xiaomi introduced a new middle-class smartphone with flagship ambitions. Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition is positioned by the brand as a youthful and inexpensive device with advanced features. However, it should be understood that under this name the device will be sold in China, and it will enter the international market under a different name. According to the latest information, the global version of the device will be called Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom. Why zoom? The answer lies with the advanced gadget camera.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom - overview and features
First, it's worth taking a look at the appearance of the machine. There are no frills in it and it differs a little from its competitors. But if you take into account the materials in the case, it's clear that Xiaomi doesn't save on them like others do. The classic combination of metal and glass allows the smartphone to still belong to the top league. Xiaomi offers Mi 10 Lite Zoom in five colors: white, peach, black, greenish and turquoise blue. The display of the device is a chic AMOLED matrix with Full HD+ resolution, 6.57 inches diagonal and 20:9 aspect ratio. The incredible 4,300,000:1 contrast at peak and a very high maximum brightness of up to 800 nit should be distinguished from the screen features. At the same time, the display supports HDR10+, DC Dimming technology and has almost perfect color accuracy with a parameter JNCD, equal to the value of <0.7. Naturally, the screen with such characteristics, not inferior to the matrixes in the flagships, you need to reliably protect, which will perfectly cope with the glass Gorilla Glass 5. With the performance of Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom also everything is at its best. For the work of the gadget is responsible for the best processor subflagship level - Snapdragon 765G with a 5G modem. This is a gaming solution with pumped-up cores and graphics, but so much so that it is called a simplified version of the top chip Snapdragon 865. The 7-nanometer process, high energy efficiency and low heat are complemented by a solid amount of memory. Thus, Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom will be sold in several variations with RAM from 6 to 8 GB, and the drive will offer 64/128 or even 256 GB. Alas, no memory card support is expected.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom - camera with 50x zoom in.
On the question of photo opportunities, Xiaomi decided to go for the monsters of photography, namely the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Huawei P40 Pro. This is, of course, a 50x electronic zoom for which an 8MP camera is responsible. Also, this module is able to shoot with 5x optical zoom without loss of quality and with the presence of optical stabilization. This is a bid to win, no less. It also has a 48 MP main camera with f/1.8, 8 MP wide-angle camera and 2 MP macro sensor. For selfies 16 MP photo module has been chosen. In general, as for the inexpensive device, Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom is seriously pumped through the cameras and can compete on equal terms with the higher-league gadgets voiced above.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom - other possibilities
As expected of any modern smartphone, the novelty is equipped with a capacity of 4160 mAh battery with support for fast charging at 22.5 W. There is NFC, Bluetooth 5.1, support for 5G networks, Type-C and even declared support for Hi-Res Audio with stereo sound. The fingerprint scanner is optical and is located under the display.Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom - release date and price The device sales are scheduled to start on April 30 at the following prices: - 6/64 GB - from 297 dollars;- 6/128 GB - from 325 dollars;- 8/128 GB - from $353;- 8/256 GB - from 395 dollars.Please Subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on FB or IG and get notified of our promotions and new launches!
Google Pixel smartphones are valued by many users because they are made by Google itself, carefully optimizing its own Android operating system for them. The Pixel has been known from the beginning for its excellent software performance, and now it is also appreciated for its long support. Not surprisingly, the demand for Pixel is quite high even in countries where it is not officially sold, and the release of cheap Pixel is another confirmation of this. The other day it became known, what will be the new simplified Pixel 4A: in addition to the previously quiet characteristics was revealed another important point - the design of a smartphone. Now almost everything is known about the upcoming novelty, so you can look at it.
Google Pixel 4A - appearance of the device
Pixel 4A will be a simplified version of last year's flagship Pixel 4 and will preserve some of its flagship features. In particular, Google decided not to change the design, although in the form in which it is presented in the novelty, it does not represent any value. If you look at the back cover, you can see that it is plastic, and the location of the main camera for some reason left a large rectangular area. Why it was done, it is unknown, and if you compare the view of the back cover with the one in Pixel 3a, the 4-th is clearly here in the loss.
The front of the smartphone, on the other hand, is fine. Full-screen design with really thin frames and front camera located in the hole in the top left corner. Finally, the Pixel has lost the indents and the drop-shaped cutout. With that, the appearance of the device is ambiguous: everything is great from the front, but something weird and messy from behind.
Google Pixel 4A - the main characteristics
Let's start with the screen - this is a 5.81 inch display with OLED matrix and Full HD+ (2340x1080 pixels) resolution. The small size of the display, paired with virtually no frames, suggests that the smartphone will be very compact. This is great news, as productive smartphones on Android are now very, very few. As for the refresh rate, the display will not produce more than 60 Hz.
Speaking of performance. With 99% probability the device will be equipped with a very solid chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 730, which has on board an Adreno 618 video accelerator, and will complement all this RAM up to 6 GB. Compared to other devices on the market, Pixel 4A does not have an outstanding "iron", but if you consider the deep optimization of Android for the parameters of Pixel 4A and long support, competitors immediately lose their advantages in the form of more powerful stuffing and other features.
The main feature of Pixel 4A will be its camera. Obviously, even with a single photo module on 12 MP smartphone will be the best camera in the middle segment. Although if Google has installed in the device and a wide-angle module, the device would have no competitors. As the front camera chosen 8 MP photomodule with video stabilization support.
The smartphone will support 4G, Bluetooth 5.1, Type-C networks, and as an operating system will be Android 10. Alas, but a miracle in terms of battery life is not worth waiting for, as the battery capacity is only 3080 mAh and fast charging is not yet said a word.
Google Pixel 4A - comparison with Pixel 4
Pixel 4A is a simplified version of Pixel 4, but if you compare both devices, in some moments the flagship is even worse than its ground version. The first thing that disappoints Pixel 4 is its battery capacity of 2800 mAh. Although the Pixel 4A's battery isn't much bigger, the slight advantage of a weaker and more energy-efficient chip will allow it to live for at least 2-3 hours longer. The second is the flagship frame. It's big and it's strange to see it in a gadget of this size. If you look at both devices in front, it is very easy to make a mistake where the top solution and where the average budget device. Thirdly, Pixel 4A promises full support for two SIM cards, but Pixel 4 can only offer SIM paired with eSIM, which is supported by a small number of operators. The same amount of RAM and constant memory is left out of sight, without attributing it as an achievement or a disadvantage to any of the smartphones.
In everything else, Pixel 4 surpasses its younger brother, with a powerful Snapdragon 855, a double main camera with a telephoto lens, high-quality housing made of glass and metal with moisture protection for IP68. The most important thing in all this is that the novelty cost less, and significantly. Only in this way Google will be able to attract the attention of new customers, because Pixel is for what to love, and the advantages of the device line is much more important than those "teddy" that offer competitors. This quality, stability, support time and reliability.
Google Pixel 4A - when it comes out.

It took Apple exactly 4 years to release the second version of the once-popular cheapest iPhone SE. Despite the fact that the novelty in 2020 is not a pioneer, Cupertino decided not to mark the smartphone with the index "2", leaving the former name - iPhone SE. The device was waiting for a long time and it happened - Apple without much pathos presented the smartphone, again endowing it with a rather modest price tag. This time the basis of the gadget was an old iPhone 8. What the "apple" brand managed to do in the end, let's sort it out.
iPhone SE (2020) - Appearance and screen
That the past iPhone SE, that the modern one - they have the same feature, which is compact. Presented iPhone SE is a complete copy of the iPhone 8. They have the same design, size and even weight! This means that the novelty is a compact gadget with dimensions 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm. However, there are disadvantages to this, which is the return of huge frames at the top and bottom - and this is after several years of propaganda for framelessness. However, for fans of classic design it will not matter, as we will repeat - we have a full copy of the iPhone 8. According to the materials of execution also no innovations - a classic combination of metal frame and glass panels.
With the display is the same story - it's still the same small 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1334x750 dots and a corporate density of 326 ppi. Maximum brightness is 625 nit, there is support for TrueTone and Wide Color technologies. Also, the display supports Haptic Touch (analogue of 3D Touch, only simpler), but the iPhone 8 has nothing like that. By the way, the good old Touch ID, combined with a button "Home," which many still miss, despite the excellent work of modern Face ID.
iPhone SE (2020) - Specifications
The main difference between the modern iPhone SE and iPhone 8 lies inside the case. We are talking about the new processor Apple A13 Bionic, which is borrowed from the latest flagship iPhone 11 version. The Apple A13 Bionic is two generations fresher and much more powerful than the A11 Boinic. RAM in the smartphone should be at least 3 GB, but Apple does not apply to this issue, wishing to keep information a secret. The company is just saying that everything will work super fast. The internal drive offers 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB of internal storage space.
Battery capacity is also kept secret, although the merchants assure that the battery life will be at the same level as the iPhone 8, which has a battery capacity of 1821 mAh. There is support for fast charging up to 18W (a more powerful unit will have to buy separately), as well as wireless charging.
Finally, the camera. In terms of features, the main module of the iPhone SE camera is slightly different from the iPhone 8 is 12 MP with an aperture of f/1.8. However, the camera in the device is still borrowed from the iPhone 11 because it is claimed to support 4K @60 fps video recording. And the photo module is covered with sapphire glass, which was not in the G8. There is also a mode "Portrait" with depth of field and light adjustment; SmartHDR; cinematic stabilization of video due to OIS and much more. The front camera is a 7 MP module with f/2.2 and there are no innovations.

Over the past month, there have been rumors online that Samsung is preparing for the release of several tablet devices. One of them was to be a simplified version of last year's flagship Galaxy Tab S6 with the prefix Lite, and the second - a compact device Galaxy Tab A (2020) 8.4 inches. Early leaks were confirmed and both tablets really came out, and now we know not only their full specifications and design but also the official price.
The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite - tablet overview, features, and price.
The simplified model of the flagship Galaxy Tab S6 turned out to be quite solid. Externally it is still the same device with thin and neat frames around the display, enclosed in a metal case with a thickness of only 7 mm. The main differences between the devices are inside, and the difference in cost is 100%.
Instead of the flagship Snapdragon 855, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite uses an average performance chipset Exynos 7 Octa 9611 with frequencies up to 2.3 GHz, consisting of 4 powerful cores Cortex-A73 and 4 energy-efficient Cortex-A53. The tablet has up to 4 GB of fast LPDDR4X and 64/128 GB of RAM on an internal storage device with card support. Although the displays in both devices are almost the same diagonally (Galaxy Tab S6 10.5" and Lite 10.4"), they actually differ significantly. Firstly, the resolution has decreased from 2560x1600 dots to 2000x1200 dots, and secondly, an IPS matrix is used instead of AMOLED. The display of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is excellent, but still, it is one step lower than the one installed in the flagship model.
The cameras have also been cut down. Instead of 12 MP + 5 MP (width), the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite now only uses a single 7 MP photo module. The front camera offers a 5 MP sensor and face unlocking capability. The great news is that the stereo is nowhere to go and there is support for both Dolby Atmos and AKG audio. However, instead of 4 loudspeakers, only 2 are used now.
The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has all the necessary wireless technologies such as dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS module. Also in the tablet there is a 3.5 mm jack for headphones and a connector for charging and data transfer standard Type-C version 3.1. Battery capacity is 7040 mAh and supports fast-charging up to 15 W. Support for the S-Pen stylus is also announced. The price of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is 422 dollars per basic version.
Galaxy Tab A (2020) - tablet overview, specifications, and price.

Long-playing smartphones are more relevant today than ever. Finally, even the flagship models sacrificed the subtlety and elegance look to the advantage of battery life. There's no need to talk about low-cost devices: 4000 mAh, 5000 mAh and even honest 6000 mAh is no longer news today. So the Motorola company decided to move in the same vein and recently released a new long-lasting smartphone called Moto G8 Power Lite. The manufacturer claims that thanks to the large battery and good hardware, the device can do without recharging for more than two days, even with active use. However, this is not the only trump card up the sleeve of a budget smartphone. What else is interesting about the device, let's take a closer look at it.
Moto G8 Power Lite - overview and features
The appearance of the smartphone is represented by a classic design with a full-screen display, which has a small bottom indent and droplet-shaped cutout for the front camera. The body materials of the device do not strike the imagination, as they are ordinary plastic and tempered glass that covers the screen. On the other hand, the plastic on the back cover is strong enough to withstand shocks rather than glass. The plastic is also water-resistant, so your smartphone is protected from splashes and liquids spilled on it.
The smartphone screen is presented by HD+ matrix, made on IPS technology with an aspect ratio of 20:9 at a diagonal of 6.5 inches. Low display resolution is a key factor in long battery life, as it reduces the load on the chipset and consumes less energy. The processor itself is represented by the Mediatek Helio P35 solution, which is an entry level stone with a 12nm processor and Cortex-A53 cores accelerating to 2.3 GHz. The sufficient performance of the chipset and its slim process has a similarly positive effect on the battery life of the device. The Helio P35 offers up to 4 GB of fast LPDDR4X RAM in dual channel mode and up to 64 GB on the internal drive (micro SD support available).
Moto G8 Power Lite is also interesting thanks to the cameras, it has as much as four of them. The front camera is a single 8 MP module with f/2.0, Face Unlock function and support for shooting in HDR. The main camera is a set of three modules, including a 16 MP main camera with f/1.7 luminous optics, 2 MP macro camera and 2 MP image depth sensor. The smartphone can not only shoot Full HD video at 60 fps, but also offers electronic image stabilization. Thanks to the triple camera, the Moto G8 Power Lite lets you shoot both high-quality regular photos and great portraits and macro shots.
Finally, the battery of 5000 mAh - this, as the manufacturer claims, provides three days of battery life. Up to 100 hours of music streaming, up to 19 hours of watching movies, up to 35 days of standby time. The only drawback is that the smartphone charger gives out no more than 10W and there's no mention of fast charging support anywhere, which means it's probably not available.
The price of the device is not yet announced, but it will not be high. Stay tuned for our news and updates in the News section, and be the first to know about new gadgets on sale.Please Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and get notified of our promotions and new launches!
