Google is once again expanding its hardware offerings by getting into the webcam business — though, this bid screams more of Cisco than Logitech. The company is selling videoconferencing equipment bundles, titled Series One room kits, that revolve around the somewhat ubiquitous Google Meet conferencing service and what group meetings may look like in the near future.
Lenovo first got into the smart clock biz last year, with the creatively named Lenovo Smart Clock. That device was essentially a tiny Google Assistant-powered smart display positioned as a clock replacement. It was a neat idea, but an introductory MSRP of $80 made it a tough sell. Lenovo is trying again this year with the Smart Clock Essential, a smaller, simpler, less expensive take on the same idea.
Android tablets might have long become passé, but there are people out there that want them. Some of those people might not even want to turn to the market's most prolific maker of Android tablets, Samsung, and go along with its overbearing experience. For them, Lenovo is presenting two alternatives for the holiday season — a refreshed Tab M10 HD (2nd Gen) and the all-new Tab P11 Pro 2-in-1.
Research house Canalys tracked 31.9 million smartphone shipments in the U.S. for the second quarter, down 5% from last year. Diverging plotlines between the novel coronavirus pandemic and the trade war with China are putting intense pressures on the industry in terms of cost and product strategy.
The eye-watering price tag of Moto’s long-awaited flagship necessitated a mid-ranger that could stand as a more affordable alternative to the high-end Edge+. We had an inkling that a new Motorola phone fitting the description was on its way, thanks to a leak from, strangely enough, YouTube. In line with that leaked description, the Lenovo-owned brand has now announced the One Fusion+ with some prominent, stand-out features and a more reasonable price.
Just ahead of the Asus ROG Phone 3 announcement later today, Lenovo has unveiled a rival in the form of its first Legion-branded gaming smartphone. The two Snapdragon 865 Plus devices are set to go head-to-head for mobile gaming supremacy — Lenovo has a few neat tricks up its sleeve including 90W charging, a novel side-mounted pop-up camera, and a 144Hz display.
Seemingly on schedule with its tick-tock cycle, Qualcomm is announcing a half-step iteration to its Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, the Snapdragon 865 Plus. With it come the predictable minor performance bumps, but the system-on-a-chip does cross a major threshold in the realm of Wi-Fi.
We're still waiting for a precise date for the Lenovo Legion smartphone, but ASUS has just revealed courtesy of a timer on the ROG Phone 3 site that we can expect that phone to be revealed on July 22nd at 10AM ET (7AM PT).
