It’s not hard to see trends coming in the smartphone world, and last year we knew we’d be seeing a lot of QHD displays in 2015. That prediction has come true, and it looks like 2016 may be the year of big batteries and lots of RAM. We’ve touched on several upcoming handsets with both features, and you can now add one more to the list with the Lenovo K80.
Elephone has been ramping things up with their smartphone releases, and we’ve covered several solid handsets from the company this year including the P3000 with its 3GB of RAM. Well, it looks like they are pulling out all the stops for their next two smartphones simply known as Version A and Version B.
Xiaomi, like many other smartphone manufacturers, will occasionally drop a limited edition handset. We saw a Bamboo version of the Mi Note appear last month, and now we’re getting word of another special smartphone with the Xiaomi Mi Note Black Edition.
The Samsung Galaxy A lineup first appeared on our radars back in December of last year, and we’ve seen three handsets released under the brand thus far. Well, looks like there will be a fourth as we have just learned the Samsung Galaxy A8 specifications courtesy of a new leak.
Xiaomi has a lot of their customers chomping at the bit to see what they produce next, and the company is set to show something “Global” off at the end of the month in India. We know it will be a smartphone of sorts, and we may have just gotten our first look at it with the Xiaomi Mi 4i benchmarks.
It’s safe to say a lot of budget handsets make their way through our site, and while we try to not refer to them as cheap, some are just that – in a good way. The Lenovo A1900 price has just been announced at $60, which makes it one of the cheapest Android handsets money can buy.
You never quite know what you’re going to get from Vivo, and the company has certainly gotten our attention with a trio of new teasers that have just hit the web. They don’t give us a whole lot to go off of, but they do give us an idea of what kind of material their next handset will use in its build.
Just a few short days ago we told you about a new Oppo smartphone that passed through certification in China. What a difference a couple of days make. While we usually don’t see phones released this quickly, Oppo has just made the Oppo A31 official with a nice price tag of $160.
Oppo has plenty of smartphones in the works, and we just took a look at the bezeless Oppo R7 last month. The Oppo A31 doesn’t appear to be nearly as fancy, but it has recently passed through TENAA which gives us a glimpse under the hood of the upcoming smartphone.
Lenovo’s handsets may not be as popular as some of the ones we’ve seen from Motorola, the company they purchased. They are getting better however, and their prices are something that has made a lot of folks sit up and take notice. One of their newest handsets is called the Lenovo A7600-M, and a new leak gives us a good look at its design.
If you’re not familiar with the name Bluboo, you aren’t alone. It’s not a cartoon character or fancy new drink, it’s actually a smartphone called the Bluboo X550. While you may not know them now, you’ll remember them thanks to a huge battery and a very low price.
