Possibly the last Intel x86-powered phone was displayed at MWC

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

Intel may have announced the end of its ultra-low-power Atoms almost two years ago, but the death of the platform wasn't instantaneous, it took some time. While it was sad to see another mobile SoC competitor drop out of the race, at the same time it seemed inevitable given Intel's x86-based approach.

However, Intel's mobile death-throes continue to be dragged out due to contractual obligations, and a couple new chipsets have been released based on the Intel's x86 designs.

Android Police’s Best of MWC 2018 awards

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

This year's MWC just wrapped up a few days ago, but for almost a week, news from the event dominated our feed. Numerous individual product announcements occurred in Barcelona this year, now that it's over, we've handed out seven awards to different manufacturers. Some of them are things you can buy now, some of them are things you can buy later, and some are for things you'll never be able to purchase.

[Update: Pre-orders are live] Galaxy S9 and S9+ US pre-orders, pricing, release date, and more

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are both official now, but there's still the pesky question of where to pick one up. You can always go the unlocked route, but carrier deals can present a decent discount. Plus, you've got aesthetics to take into consideration. Will this retailer have that color?

Hands-on with the ASUS ZenFone 5Z and 5 series: Shameless notch-envy

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

ASUS' Android phones might slide under the radar for most, but the company's new ZenFone 5 series probably won't. The company has had some trouble historically trying to penetrate the US phone market to any great depth—perhaps a result of its crowded, sometimes confusing product portfolio—but nonetheless it persists. Some of its phones have even been pretty good. But now that the wraps have been taken off its latest line of phones, it seems like ASUS has found a successful way to attract the attention it wanted: by copying the iPhone X's notch. 

ASUS formally announced the three new phones at its event in Barcelona just a couple of days ago, and though we had a bit of an idea what the ZenFone 5Q/Lite would look like, the 5 and 5Z were a bit more surprising.

LG G7 (Neo) caught on video at MWC sporting Snapdragon 845 and 19.5:9 OLED display with notch

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

LG's been very hard to follow regarding news about the future of the Gx series and what its 2018 flagship will be. We first heard that LG wouldn't be calling its next flagship "G7," then that LG has scrapped the in-development G7 for a completely new phone, and most recently that we'll see LG's flagship in June. That's all good and well, but this latest article and video shot by Israeli publication Ynet at MWC 2018 depicts a phone called the G7 (Neo).

Here are all the Android Go phones announced at MWC 2018

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Android Go was first introduced by Google at I/O in May 2017, so it's been a long wait for real devices running the slimmed-down Oreo experience. We hoped Mobile World Congress in Barcelona would be when OEMs began launching Android Go phones, and this was confirmed by Google last week.

The first ultra-low-cost phones with 1GB or less of RAM running Android Oreo (Go Edition) have been announced here at MWC.

Vivo Apex hands-on: pop-up selfie cam, in-screen fingerprint scanner, and practically zero bezel

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

In-display fingerprint scanners on phones had been prophesied for some time, but few expected relatively unknown Chinese manufacturer Vivo would be the first to release a consumer product to the market. The X20 Plus UD went on sale last month, exclusively in China, for around $565.

By all accounts, the fingerprint reader works pretty well, although the phone was mostly unremarkable otherwise. It shipped with dual rear cameras, a 1080p 6.43" OLED panel, and a Snapdragon 660.

ASUS unveils ZenFone 5Z, 5, and 5Q with bezel-less displays, dual cameras, and more

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

Asus, as we expected, showed off the new ZenFone 5 family at MWC. Unlike years past, the Taiwanese company is keeping in step with modern smartphone trends, in some cases to the point of plain copying the iPhone X. Regardless, some of the new devices look fantastic and our initial impressions are relatively positive.

Besides the familiar design on two of the devices, Asus went all out with its talk of what it calls "ZeniMoji." I kid you not — pulled straight from one of the press releases: "ZeniMoji is a fun new ZenFone 5 feature that lets users animate cute avatars using their own voice, facial expressions and head movements.

Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 700 series brings flagship SoC features to more affordable phones

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

Today Qualcomm has announced a whole new Snapdragon series that fits (in both number and performance) between the existing 800 and 600. This 700 series includes high-performance features from the more expensive flagship-bound 800s like custom Kryo cores, the Hexagon DSP, Spectra ISP, and Adreno graphics. But unlike the 800, this new line is destined for more affordable devices, bringing flagship-level features to an increasingly accessible price point. 

Specifics at this point are sparse and no individual SoCs have been announced.
