Lenovo's Google Assistant-powered 8" and 10.1" Smart Displays up for pre-order, priced at $149.99 and $229.99

Lenovo announced its Google Assistant-powered Smart Displays early this year, but we hadn't really heard anything about them since then. Both the 8.0" and 10.1" models of the Smart Display have just popped up on B&H, and interestingly, they're actually priced lower than what Lenovo said they'd cost. Maybe this is to make up for their blatant lies about the Lenovo Z5 from earlier today.

B&H lowers LG V30S ThinQ pre-order price to $729.99 ($200 off)

The LG V30S ThinQ was announced at Mobile World Congress in February, and is essentially a V30 with extra software features and more storage/RAM. Pre-orders for the phone went live in the United States a few days ago, at a price tag of $929.99. That's a lot of money for any phone, let alone one using a chipset from last year.

LG V30S ThinQ available for pre-order in the US at the astronomical price of $930

LG announced a new version of the V30 at Mobile World Congress this year called the V30S ThinQ. At the time, it wouldn't commit to launching the phone in the US. Now, pre-orders for the North American V30S ThinQ are live, and the price tag is bordering on insulting. The B&H product page lists this phone at $929.99. Yikes.

[Update: Now available] Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact now up for pre-order in the US

The Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are arguably Sony's best-looking phones yet. Unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in February, the latest Sony flagships have rear fingerprint sensors and sport 18:9 displays with far less bezel than we're accustomed to from Xperia devices. They both include the freshest Snapdragon 845 chip with 4GB of RAM and will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo.

I was impressed by them in my hands-on at MWC, especially in view of Sony finally embracing a more modern design aesthetic — even if the Compact is a little chunky. Sony doesn't usually concentrate on the US market too much, but we learned a couple of days ago that Best Buy would have both phones available to pre-order from today, and both are now live on the site in a range of different colors.
