Six smartphones debuted today - see if you have missed any

14 January, 2015

Today, on what was a seemingly uneventful day we saw the announcement of six new devices. Among them are four new entry-level Lumia handsets, well actually two - Lumia 435 and Lumia 532, just in both single and dual SIM variants.

They will both offer a 4-inch LCD screen, with a resolution of 480 x 800px and a Snapdragon 200 SoC, which is outdated at best. On the plus side the couple only costs €70/€80 and will run WP 8.1 so you can expect modern software and the support to go with it from the budget devices.

Samsung also made the news with the announcement of the Samsung Z1. Is is an equally modest device, but sets itself apart from the crowd as the first ever Tizen-powered smartphone.

Whether or not the new platform will gain speed is all up to user reception and Samsung's effort to draw in app developers and third party support. For the time being the little smartphone is a unique and highly experimental breed, but the Korean giant might just have something big planned if it delivers on its promise to make Tizen compatible with Android apps.

Last, but not least we have the Oppo R1C, which was the first one to make an appearance today. The smartphone bears mid-lever hardware and is equipped with a Snaprdagon 615, along with 2GB of RAM and a 5-inch 720p display. From what we have seen so far the device definitely looks slick with a shiny back panel and a beautiful 6.85mm body.

So if you missed anything from this device-busy Wednesday be sure to check the table below. Also give us your thoughts on which smartphone of the bunch you are most excited about.

Is this even a reputable source? After the improper use of words, bad spelling, and primary school style writing, I wouldn't say this is fit to show to the public, let alone take as a serious source. Let's hope they can't mess up something as simple ...
