iQOO has come up with probably the cheapest 5G smartphone by the company today. The Chinese manufacturer also unveiled another smartphone called iQOO U1 but this one is 4G and has a pricing of $171. You can say that it is the most affordable phone in the company. The smartphone may sound cheap but has some great specs. For example, the phone has a punch-hole display, a massive battery, and fast-charging support.
The iQOO UI has a 6.53-inch FHD+ display with a 1080x 2340 resolution. The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 720 2.3GHz processor. You can purchase the phone with 8GB of RAM, and 128GB UFS 2.1 internal storage. It comes with three rear cameras, including a 48-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel depth camera lens, and a 2-megapixel macro shooter lens. For the front camera, it features an 8MP lens for selfies and video calling. The device is using a side-facing fingerprint scanner for security.
The iQOO UI is available in three variants in terms of memory and storage. You can purchase the 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage for CNY 1,198, 6GB memory and 128GB internal storage for CNY 1,398, 8GB memory and 128GB internal storage for CNY 1,598. The phone has standard connectivity options and measures 162.05mm x 76.61mm x 8.46mm and weighs 190 grams. Connectivity options include dual-band Wi-Fi, 4G, Bluetooth v5.1, GPS, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Micro-USB port for charging. The phone is powered by a 4,500mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging and OTG reverse charging. The device has three color options - secret black, star blue, and sunny forest white. The phone will go on sale in China starting July 23.
The Moto G series has finally a 5G model. This is one of the most popular budget series around, that now caters to people who want a 5G connectivity for their phone. Meet the latest Moto G 5G plus. It's not just a phone for 5G but also a heavy specs step up in a range of other areas. The first phone in the G series was introduced only 9 months ago, and barely a month since the last one. The phone also gets the biggest screen of any other device in the Moto G. It comes with a 6.7-inches diagonally, and it's also got a 21:9 aspect ratio. Plus, this is the first Moto G phone to have a fingerprint sensor mounted on the side.
So, the Moto G 5G plus is the biggest step for a Moto G phone in a while. As per news the company's Motorola Edge just came out and the next Moto flagship Razr 2020 is likely coming soon. The phone was initially launched in the UK and Europe, but not confirmed for the other regions so far. The biggest change is the vertical camera bump and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The placement doesn't feel comfortable; especially if you have small hands.
The Moto G 5G (weird name, right) has a massive six cameras in total, which is a huge number for a budget-category phone. On the rear of the handset there's a 48MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, 5MP macro, and 2MP depth-sensing camera, then on the front there's a 16MP main and another 8MP ultra-wide snapper for solo and group selfies respectively. The device is powered by a Snapdragon 765G chipset, which is surprisingly advanced. The phone comes in either 4GB or 6GB of RAM models. The phone is 5G-compatible too as we mentioned earlier. The Moto G 5G plus operates on Android 10, with a Google-made UI, and not a custom overlay as most manufacturers use. If budget is your main concern, and you can wait, this could be your phone but there are certainly better 5G phones out there with a better camera.
