Check Out The New Phones And Tablets Of The Week

By 08:26 Sat, 24 Jul 2021 Comments

Understandably, the aftermath of MWC 2015 hasn't seem much recent hardware. It is only natural that the event exhausted manufacturers, so we haven’t really been getting a lot of device announcement lately.

This week, however, there has been some recent and fascinating announcements for us. First up, is the Microsoft Lumia 430 Dual SIM. The small Windows Phone device is Microsoft's latest effort to captivate low-discontinue markets, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. It is powered by a rather outdated elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset with 1.2 Giga Hertz (GHz) with 1GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and has a rather small 4-inch 800x480 pixels display. On the plus side, the Lumia 430 Dual SIM will retail for the price of $70 and you really can't ask for more with that budget.

Samsung also had a few devices to show off during the past few days. There is the recent budacquire Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 V tablet. It offers a 7-inch WSVideo Graphics Array (VGA) display and is powered by a Spreadtrum chipset with a 1.3Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core processor and a single gig of RAM. Price is around $135, which is definitely a fine deal for the hardware.

Joining it, are two other tablets - the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7. As their names, suggest, they are mostly identical, except for the classy screen size. Both offer a slight improvement over the previous model in terms of hardware and should be available for purchase sometime this April.

HTC had a recent phone to show as well - Desire 820s dual sim. It also made the round a few days ago and is essentially a Mediatek variant of the standard Desire 820. Last, but not least, there is a tablet curtsey of Acer. It is available in a rather confusing range of hardware variants and is essentially a mid-range offer.
