New Devices Of The Week

By 08:58 Mon, 02 Aug 2021 Comments

The past week was jam-packed with recent device announcements. Samsung's even added a brand recent Galaxy "C" family to its lineup.

The Korean giant kicked things off within its recent metal lineup with the Galaxy C5 and shortly after, the Galaxy C7. Both can be considered mid-range offers and the only incompatibility between the otherwise indistinguishable "C" pair is the size (5.2-inches and 5.7-inches), as well as a small processor upgrade.

Moving on to another exciting release - ZTE Axon 7. With all the bells and whistles, like a 5.5-inch AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) QHD display, Snapdragon 820 SoC and up to 6GB of RAM, it is definitely going after the gigantic boys. Coupled with the newly announced ZTE VR headset and plans for a quite a few recent brick and mortar stores, ZTE seems to be going in full on assault mode this year.

LG showcased two recent devices this week, although, not particularly high-discontinue ones. First, there is the LG G Pad III 8.0 - an 8-inch tablet with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixel and an octa-core SoC on board. The other newcomer is the LG Stylus 2 Plus - a 5.7-inch FullHD phablet, powered by a Snapdragon 430 chip, 3GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and a 3,000 mAh battery. It also has a 16MP primary camera, LTE, dual-SIM support and boots Android Marshmallow. It even has a stylus and all that for $340.

Further down the list, we find the Acer Liquid Zest Plus. With a 5.5-inch HD display, 2 Giga Bytes (GB) of RAM, MediaTek's MT6735 and a spacious 5,000 mAh battery, it seems to offer quite a bit for its $199 price tag.

And last, but not least, Jolla - the young Finnish company founded by ex-Nokia and MeeGo employees, has launched its second smartphone - the Jolla C.
