There have been some leaks over the past few weeks when it comes to OnePlus's latest flagship, but it still hasn't killed any excitement. At the company's event in New York today, OnePlus has officially unveiled its latest phone, the OnePlus 5T. Featuring super modern slimmed-down bezels in an extended 18:9 display (with a new "Sunlight Display" feature), improved low-light camera performance, and a new Face Unlock feature, all starting at $499.
Today Razer has announced its new Android device: the aptly named Razer Phone. It has the world's first 120Hz "Ultramotion" display, the first use of Qualcomm's QuickCharge 4+, and a great set of specs like 8GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (further expandable via microSD), and a 4,000 mAh battery. It will cost $699 and pre-orders will be live as soon as today, with general availability for North America and Europe on November 17th.
Those of you who've been waiting with bated breath to get your hands on LG's dual-screen phone won't have to wait much longer. Both AT&T and T-Mobile will be carrying the V10, and both of them will have it available for purchase later this week. AT&T customers can buy the phone starting tomorrow, though it won't actually ship or be available in stores until November 6th (next Friday). T-Mobile customers can buy one on Wednesday, October 28th, but it won't be in stores until Friday.
AT&T will sell you a Space Black or Opal Blue phone for $699.99, or $249.99 with a two-year contract.
The Moto X Style isn't the only new flagship that Motorola revealed at its press conference this morning. The new Moto X Play is basically a "Maxx" version of the phone, with a smaller 1080p screen, but a gigantic 3630mAh battery (plus Turbo charging) for what Motorola calls "48 hours of mixed use." The price will reflect the slightly lower specs, since Motorola claims that this phone will be "$300-400 cheaper" than flagship phones from the competition.
"F" is kind of an awkward name for a line of products. In the rankings of glamorous Latin letters which I just made up in my head, it sits somewhere between Q (just an O that's trying too hard) and P (even more lopsided, and it doesn't get the stability of the bipedal R). But whatever the reason, LG decided it was a really apt way to distinguish some one-off American carrier tablets from its regular G series. Meet AT&T's LG G Pad F 8.0. Eff, that's awkward.
The tablet will go on sale starting May 29th for $149.99 with a two-year contract, or $12.50 a month on the interest-free installment plan, which comes out to $250 after twenty months.
Of the Big Four American carriers, AT&T has the best selection of Android tablets available... which, admittedly, isn't saying much. Today their shallow ranks get bolstered by two new Samsung tablets, one in the original Galaxy Tab line (which is now the de facto budget option) and one in the new Pro series. The Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 and the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 will be available on the carrier starting this Friday, June 6th.
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is currently the biggest and baddest product in Samsung's entire mobile lineup. As the name implies, it's a 12.2-inch tablet with Sammy's usual Note accoutrements, including a screen with a Wacom digitizer and an included S-Pen stylus.
Sony has two new phones to announce here at CES in Las Vegas: one specifically for the purple people over at T-Mobile, and one meant to appease users who want a premium phone without the bulk. The Xperia Z1s is T-Mobile's branded variant of the slightly older Xperia Z1. Aside from the extra letter and doubled storage, it's identical to Sony's international flagship. The Xperia Z1 Compact is a smaller 4.3" phone that keeps most of the premium features.
There's not much to say about the Z1s - it's the Z1 for T-Mobile, with T-Mo's LTE bands. You still get the 5" 1080p LCD screen, the Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, the same customized build of Android 4.3, and a bombastic 20.7MP rear camera.
The words "no compromise" and "mid-range" would seem to be mutually exclusive, but Motorola would like you to think otherwise. The company announced the Moto G in a live event, promoting a cheaper and slightly lower-spec version of the flagship Moto X. This phone is Motorola's wide-ranging model, the first that's been introduced since the X, and it's intended to be cheap enough to be purchased without a contract.
We could tell you all the specs and technical details, but the most important factor in the Moto G is the price. The Moto G starts at just $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for the 16GB model.
Kids these days have it so easy. When I was a rugrat me and my sister shared a 100Mhz Windows 95 machine that Dad scrounged out of spare parts, and we were happy to have it. If you feel like irresponsibly trusting your child with an expensive electronic gadget of their very own, Samsung is happy to oblige with the Kids edition of the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3. This ruggedized tablet with kid-specific software goes on sale on November 10th at the usual retailers, plus Toys 'R' Us, for $229.99.
The tablet's Kids moniker comes from the fact that it includes a special impact-resistant case and a ton of software tweaks, including enhanced parental controls and a restricted app store specifically for children.
