New devices of the week

Yordan, 07 July 2019

The second half of the year has just started and Xiaomi, vivo, Lenovo and Samsung all introduced new mobile devices to make the start of the period that much more exciting.

New devices of the week

On Tuesday we had two different events in China - vivo was announcing its iQOO Neo with Snapdragon 845. The phone shares plenty of features with its big brother, but has a lower price tag of CNY1,798 (the equivalent of $250). It has regular vivo FlashCharge at 22.5W and memory goes as high as 8/128 GB, unlike the iQOO Monster Inside with 12/256 GB variant.

Since the phone is probably staying in China, vivo announced the Z1 Pro for all gamers in India. The company says the Z moniker is after Generation Z which are the most prolific gamers, and the device is an improved vivo Z5x - the selfie camera is 32 MP, while the chipset is Snapdragon 712 with slightly faster CPU.

Last week Xiaomi said a new CC series is joining its portfolio and this one we got its first members - the Mi CC9 and Mi CC9e are all about with their 48 MP main shooters and 32 MP selfie snapper.

Lenovo was already selling the Z6 Pro with Snapdragon 855 and the affordable Z6 Youth, so there was the natural need for something in between - the Lenovo Z6 was announced on Thursday as a middle ground. They have similar footprint, but the difference is on the inside - the new Lenovo comes with a 24 MP main camera, up to 8 GB RAM and the new Snapdragon 730 SoC.

New devices of the week

One device that we are absolutely sure will be available outside of China is the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) slate. Behind the tiresome long name is hidden an affordable tablet with Snapdragon 429 and 2 GB RAM. It has no buttons on the front side - only a huge bezel to hold it in portrait or landscape mode.

Samsung ships the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) with 2-month free YouTube Premium and 3-month free Spotify Premium subscriptions so you can play videos and fairy tales to your kid without being interrupted by ads.
