[Update: Galaxy A10, Indian pricing] Samsung announces Galaxy A50 and A30 mid-rangers with 'glass-tic' bodies and teardrop notches

Samsung isn't afraid to experiment with different types of notches in its mid-range offerings — having tried it all, from a hole-punch in the Galaxy A8S, to a OnePlus 6T-esque sloping teardrop in the M20, to more traditional bezels in the A9. Two new devices were announced today, the Galaxy A30 and A50, featuring teardrop notches of the Infinity-U design Samsung revealed last fall. These phones are likely headed to the Indian market in the coming week.

Project Fi confirms a mid-range device from a partner will come later this year

Earlier today Project Fi made a tweet that revealed a future mid-range phone will be coming to the network later this year. The tweet came in response to a statement made about the Nexus 5X, which was one of the last affordable phones available to use on Project Fi. Right now the Pixel and Pixel XL are the only phones that work with Project Fi currently in stock, and given the age of the Nexus 6P and 5X, it could be that neither will return.

The words "carrier-exclusive phone" are generally met with disappointment or annoyance. But instead of locking down expensive devices, like Verizon's Motorola DROID devices, T-Mobile could be working on a series of mid-range phones. Android Authority recently obtained an image of what is believed to be the "REVVL T1," expected to be the most affordable device in T-Mobile's upcoming product line.

Does Android One have any chance at success in the United States?

Android One is an ambitious smartphone initiative launched by Google in 2014. To date, it's been limited to a handful of countries - mostly in Asia - and it remains at best unclear if it's actually been successful. The idea was nice enough: Inexpensive Android phones built by typical handset-makers, but with Google lending a helping hand on the messy business of software updates. Of course, the carrot also came with a stick. In exchange for this software support, those handset companies agreed to use what Google decided constituted a good, proper Android - no bloat, stock look and feel, and regular security patches.

HTC has been lagging behind its competitors for years, despite some fantastic hardware and critical acclaim. So for 2017 the company is going in a completely new design direction, dumping the aluminum unibody phones it's become known for and shifting to a more generic glass front and back. The first products displaying this new direction are the HTC U Ultra, the new flagship phone, and the U Play, a mid-range model. They'll both go on sale later this year.

LeEco LePro 3 review: the best smartphone deal around just isn't worth the compromise

When shopping for a budget or mid-range phone, there is always an element of compromise. How many high-end features, how much capability are you willing to give up for the sake of a few hundred dollars? It's a similar proposition in just about any field - from a multi-year car purchase to a simple meal - but the scales are tipping for mobile. The last few years have been marked by amazing value, and thus less and less compromise, in the mid-range segment.

Which brings us to LeEco. Previously exclusive to the Chinese market, the company's debut in the US is highlighted by the LePro 3.

LeEco flash sale offers a limited number of Le S3 phones for just $149, Le Pro3 for $299, starting at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific

Chinese manufacturer LeEco made a splash with its US debut, even if it wasn't a particularly promising one. Today it has its sights set squarely on the mid-range market with $100 discounts on both of the debut American phones: the Le S3 and Le Pro3. (And yes, after penning down an initial writeup for the latter, I am LeTired of this LeNaming scheme.) That brings the pricing down to just $149 and $299, respectively, assuming you can snag one of the phones once the sale starts at 10 AM Pacific time.

BlackBerry Plans To Launch Two Mid-Range Android Phones This Year

BlackBerry launched its first Android phone, the PRIV in late 2015. While the company's smartphone losses have slowed, the PRIV's high price is proving to be a barrier to BlackBerry's comeback (even with that price cut the other day). CEO John Chen now says that BlackBerry will shift to the mid-range this year with two new phones.
