Huawei Honor Tab 5 is a New Android Tablet Priced Below $200

By Radu Iorga

Huawei’s sub brand Honor unveiled today a brand new tablet dubbed Honor Tab 5, priced at a mere $165. It’s available in China for starters and it’s going to pack an 8 inch display and a Kirin 710 processor.

The product is supposed to be part of the new wave of slates capitalizing on the rebirth of the segment. It comes as a preemptive strike for the iPad Mini 5, with midrange specs. The Kirin 710 CPU actually held its own against Snapdragon 636 and 660 on the Huawei Mate 20 Lite and Honor 8X phones, so it’s quite a good choice.

The tablet also brings a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a Mali G51 MP4 set of graphics, a 5100 mAh battery and stereo speakers. There’s also an 8 megapixel camera at the back and one at the front. Other specs include an audio jack, microSD card slot and the device is available in 4 configs in China:

  • 3GB/32GB/WiFi – $165
  • 4GB/64GB/WiFi – $195
  • 3GB/32GB/WiFi + 4G LTE – $210
  • 4GB/64GB/WiFi + 4G LTE – $225

No idea if and when the device debuts in Europe or USA. I see there’s also Dolby Atmos acoustics here.

MWC 2019: Huawei Mate X Foldable Phone Debuts, Already Feels Like Galaxy Fold Killer

By James A.

Remember the Samsung Galaxy Fold? It debuted a week ago, as the first mainstream, big brand foldable phone, but it’s apparently a limited edition, priced at $2000. Huawei upped the ante at MWC 2019, by unveiling the Huawei Mate X, its own version of foldable smartphone. It’s bigger, sexier and… pricier.

The device has an 8 inch screen that folds on the side and has the folded part snap onto a sort of “stub”, that integrates the device’s camera. There’s a flexible 8 inch OLED screen here, available when the device is in tablet mode, opened up. When used in smartphone mode, it has a 6.6 inch screen and when you’re using the screen folded at the back you get a 6.38 inch diagonal.

The thickness is amazing here, a mere 5.4 mm in tablet mode and the device is much slimmer than the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Even when folded, the 11 mm sound pretty OK. This is not just a foldable phone from Huawei, it’s also a 5G unit, courtesy of a Balong 5000 modem inside. Specs include a Kirin 980 CPU, a 4500 mAh battery with a crazy 55W charger.

 

The fingerprint scanner is integrated in the Power button and back to the screen panel, the 8 incher has a 2480 x 1220 pixels, showing us a square format. The 6.6 inch panel has a 2480 x 1148 pixel res. Huawei claims to have used a patented hinge design with over 100 components. Engineers needed 3 years to make this all happen.

The device can achieve up to 6.5/3.5 Gbps downlink and uplink speeds and there’s also a quad 5G antenna on board. There’s a triple camera here, powered by Leica optics, with a 40 MP, 16 MP and 8 MP sensor. Options are completed by the microSD card slot, WiFi ac and an USB Type-C port. Things aren’t perfect though, as this beast is priced at $2600. While the Galaxy Fold is coming in April, the Mate X is coming in June.

MWC 2019: Lenovo Tab V7 is a Tablet and a Smartphone with Midrange Specs

By James A.

Lenovo is the type of company to unveil a dozen laptops at every big tech show during the year. At MWC 2019 they did bring a few laptops, but aside from those there was also an interesting tablet, that may as well be promoted as a bigger phone. It’s called Lenovo Tab V7.

It’s got a 6.9 inch Full HD screen with an IPS LCD panel, 4 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 450 CPU.. There’s cellular connectivity here and the device runs Android Pie out of the box. This hybrid between smartphone and tablet and should start shipping in Europe in April, priced at around $250. The screen has an 18:9 aspect and an 81% screen to body ratio.

Seeing how Netflix is on the homescreen and there are front facing speakers here with Dolby Audio, it’s clearly a device meant for media consumption. Specs also include a primary 13 megapixel camera and a front 5 MP shooter. There’s a fingerprint scanner placed below the main camera, complemented by a facial recognition sensor used to unlock the phone.

There are dual 4G networks supported here, on both SIMs. The battery is a 5180 mAh unit, good enough for up to 10 hours of video playback and web browsing time. There’s up to 30 hours of talk time also promised.

New Samsung Tablet Codenamed SM-P200 Certified by NCC, Leaked in Real Life Images

By Radu Iorga

Samsung didn’t have enough with its two tablet launches last week, so it’s preparing even more devices. After the Galaxy Tab S5e and the Galaxy Tab A (2019), it’s now prepping a device codenamed SM-P200. It has been certified by the NCC and also leaked in real life images.

Sources expect the device to be launched as a Galaxy Tab A model, with a 4200 mAh battery on board. The product is going to be bundled with an EP-TA50JWS power adapter inside the box. It supports up to 7.75 W charging. On the connectivity front, the device will support WiFi b/g/n and it seems that the device may be related to the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019).

Samsung SM-P200 is rumored to have at least 32 GB of storage on board and it should be available in black and gray. The SM-P205 version of the machine was actually seen in GeekBench recently, so we could get the same Exynos 7904 octa core CPU as the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019). The GeekBench listing also mentioned 3 GB of RAM, but the Tab A (2019) only has 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.

 

The product should have a Full HD resolution, 16:10 aspect and if it’s affordable, it probably skips the IPS LCD in favour of a Super AMOLED. Android Pie with One UI is pretty much a given.

Samsung Galaxy Fold Becomes Official: Folding Phone, With 7.3 Inch Screen, $1980 Price

By Radu Iorga

Samsung Galaxy Fold came to life over the past hours, as expected and all the rumors were confirmed. I’ll be the first to admit that it looks better than I expected and you can check it out below.

Samsung Galaxy Fold is at its core a 7.3 inch tablet with an InfinityFlex display. When it’s folded it turns into a 4.6 inch smartphone with pretty large top and bottom bezels. It can be used as a smaller tablet and then folded in half and be used as a phone. You’ll have to pay a hefty premium for the device,m, $1980 and that’s only the 4G version, as there’s also a 5G version of it coming.

Samsung also worked with Google on some new software for multitasking, this time three app multitasking. There’s also “App Continuity”, a concept that lets you switch between screens and keep doing what you’re doing. Inside the device there’s a Snapdragon 855 CPU, 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.0 storage, plus microSD card slot. There’s two batteries on board, with a pretty meager capacity of 4380 mAh in total.

 

The device comes with an impressive camera setup, with 3 at the back, 2 inside and one upfront. There’s a combo of 12 MP, 16 MP and 12 MP at the back, with a main dual pixel AF cam, ultra wide cam and telephoto cam with 2X optical zoom respectively. The front cameras are the 10 MP + 8 MP depth cam, while the cover one is a selfie 10 MP shooter. The fingerprint scanner has been placed on the side and it should be reasonably easy to reach. Samsung Galaxy Fold is going to be available in black, silver, green or blue and hinge also has color versions.

Screen-wise, the 7.3 incher is a Dynamic AMOLED with a QXGA resolution and 4.2:3 aspect. There’s also a 4.6 inch HD+ Super AMOLED screen with a 21:9 aspect, in the folded/cover format. 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage round up the list. Wired and wireless fast charging is also on the table. Android 9.0 Pie is the OS, but seriously tweaked.

So, any takers? It should come in April or May.
