Earlier we posted about big releases from Nokia and Samsung at this years MWC, but what else was unveiled?
Asus uncovered a very familiar looking design for the upcoming Zenfone 5 range.
The Zenfone 5 Lite, 5 and 5Z have been uncovered and sport screens of 6″ (5 Lite) and 6.2″ (5 and 5Z), these are coupled with tiny bezels for up to 90% screen-to-body ratio.
5 Lite – The budget Lite boasts a Snapdragon 630, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, 16MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a 3300mAh battery that gets its juice via a dated MicroUSB port.
5 – The Zenfone 5 is the mid-range offering from the Taiwanese tech giants. This time around we are looking at a Snapdragon 636, 4GB or 6GB RAM and again 64GB storage. The camera gets more attention than the Lite; this time being a 12MP main sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and a secondary, 120 degree field-of-view, wide-angle sensor bolted on too. This time the 3300mAh battery is juiced up via a USB-C port.
5Z – The 5Z is the powerhouse version of the 5, and the only differences are the flagship-worthy SOC; the Snapdragon 845 is present here and comes in either 4GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB or 8GB/256GB variants.
Pricing is yet to be announced.
Huawei announced 3 new tablets and a Windows laptop.
The Chinese manufacturer has revealed the 8.4″ MediaPad M5, the 10.8″ MediaPad M5, and the 10.8″ MediaPad M5 Pro. Alongside this is the MateBook X, a high-end 13.9″ laptop featuring an 8th-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 chip.
It’s interesting to see a manufacturer still releasing Android tablets when clearly there is very little desire for them. With Windows 10 devices providing more functionality at similar prices and Apple’s iPad offering a far superior experience, it’s about time we saw some ChromeOS running tablets; ChromeTabs if you will.
Head back soon for Part 3 when we will discuss the new Sony devices and LG’s latest handset.
