Lenovo reportedly close to releasing new Motorola RAZR with folding display for $1,500

The phone to be seen with in the mid-noughties was undoubtedly the Moto RAZR, which oozed futuristic style with its thin clamshell design and aluminum body. Many millions were sold before it was usurped by better devices, but now it looks like Lenovo — Motorola's current parent company — is going to bring it back.

The 10" Lenovo Smart Display is $150 ($100 off) for Costco members

We're pretty big fans of smart displays here at Android Police, and Lenovo's in particular is a very nice option. It's probably the best-looking of all available models (if you're down with asymmetry, that is), and Ryne called it the best new kitchen appliance since the dishwasher. Right now, Costco members can pick up the larger of the two models for a hefty $100 off.

But that doesn't mean we should overlook deals when they come around. The Moto X4 has dropped to $189.99 over at Fry's Electronics.

Lenovo introduces Z5 Pro GT with selfie-slider, 12GB RAM, and no notch — but don't count on US support

With slider phone nostalgia running high, Lenovo's decision to come out with a mid-range slider last month in China, the Z5 Pro, certainly seems like a smart one. Sure, it's not the keyboard slider of yore, but it does serve an important purpose: sliding the phone out reveals the selfie cameras, leaving the display unblemished by a notch. Now, Lenovo has doubled down on the concept and announced a high-end slider called the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT. Unfortunately for those in the US, even if you manage to snag one of these devices, the lack of LTE band support makes it all but unusable.

In some cases, voice responses from Google Assistant would start at 0% volume, then slowly raise to the actual volume after a few words.

Android Pie is now rolling out to the Motorola One and One Power globally

Lenovo announced two new Android One devices in late August 2018: the Motorola One and One Power. The budget smartphones marked the Motorola brand's first Android One handsets outside of the US-only version of the Moto X4. Both are fairly middle-of-the-road Android devices when it comes to hardware, but software support is the real selling point, with promised updates to both Android Pie and Q, along with three years of security patches. Now, the manufacturer is following through on the first major update, with the announcement that Android Pie software is rolling out globally for both Motorola One handsets.

Lenovo C330 review: The best 'cheap' Chromebook money can buy

High-end Chromebooks have been attracting all the news recently, but it's products like this, Lenovo's C330, that bring the platform back to its roots. For many, the appeal of a $700 Chromebook is lost if all you need is a cheap internet-connected machine for the kids, kitchen, or grandma. But historically, those cheap Chromebooks have had a bundle of compromises to weigh and compare. Thankfully for the budget-conscious, Lenovo's C330, with its IPS display and surprising build quality, makes arguably the fewest compromises for a sub-$300 Chromebook.
