5.2-inch Huawei Honor 7 boasts 20-megapixel camera, metal body

Huawei has incorporated a really nice feature into the Honor 7, a convenience key on the side that the company has dubbed Smart Key. Press and hold to activate voice commands. Double-press to open Smartcare, Huawei’s version of a predictive personal assistant that can help book a hotel room, for example, or alert you when to leave for your next appointment.
OS and hardware
The Honor 7 will run Android 5.0 Lollipop, with Huawei’s custom Emotion UI interface (EMUI 3.1) on top. One software hallmark here is capturing screenshots with a tap of your knuckle.
Pricing, availability, outlook
The Honor 7 goes on sale July 1 in China, for 1,999 Chinese Yuan, or about $323, £205 and AU$418. It isn’t clear where else the Honor 7 will sell, or when, but with Huawei’s ambitions to help double the company’s sales in 2015, I’m expecting the Honor 7 to appear in various markets before the Honor 8 rolls around.

Meizu Announces The MX5

Today at Meizu’s event in China the company presented their new flagship phone, the MX5. The MX5 is the successor to the MX4 released last year, and while I haven’t been able to review that unit yet, I did take an extensive look at its bigger brother, the MX4Pro.

The MX5’s biggest characteristic is the change in display technology. Meizu has now adopted Samsung’s AMOLED screen in place of the traditional LCD technology. This also leads to a change in form-factor as now Meizu had to abandon its 16:10 aspect-ratio for the more conventional 16:9 resolutions. At 1080p and 5.5″ diagonal, the screen isn’t as high resolution as one might have expected and thus regresses in terms of DPI in comparison to the MX4. This is a diamond-structure PenTile subpixel arrangement so the effective resolution is thus even less than the MX4, something one might have to be wary of in a 5.5″ phone such as this.
An important metric is power consumption, the MX5 is supposed to use up 40% less power than the MX4’s screen, this might point out that PSR is now being employed on the new unit as the MX4 notoriously suffered from a lack of the technology. The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.

Meizu continues to employ MediaTek’s SoCs in its device as we see the MX5 use a new Helio X10 / MT6795. This is a successor to the MT6595 which employed A17 and A7 cores in a big.LITTLE configuration. I was fairly impressed with the performance and battery life of the MT6595 itself, while I’m sort of doubtful the new A53 cores will be able to outperform it in real use-cases, it should still work very well and also improve battery life for the new device. The MX5 comes with a standard 3GB of LPDDR3 memory.

Due to the screen’s change in aspect ratio, the MX5 is 6mm taller than the MX4, although width has gone down 0.5mm and the new phone is now also thinner at 7.6 instead of 8.9mm – all without sacrificing battery capacity (And likely battery life) as it now actually even gains 50mAh for a total of 3150mAh.

The camera system remains largely the same, but Meizu now uses a better lens system that is supposed to improve quality of the image. This is still a Sony IMX220 20.7MP sensor with an F2.2 aperture lens. What is new is that there’s now a laser auto-focus system right under the flash LED, enabling fast-focus for down to 0.2s according to Meizu.

The fingerprint sensor that we’ve seen on the MX4Pro carries over to the MX5, enabling a variety of OS security functions such as unlocking the device or accessing private folders or galleries on your phone.

The phone ships with Meizu’s FlymeOS 4.5 Android 5.0 operating system. The interesting part here is that Meizu announced its plans to open-source parts of the OS and upload them to GitHub for community development. This might attract a lot of enthusiast users as having a modding-friendly device can vastly increase the life-span of a model beyond what the OEM is willing to offer in terms of support.

Huawei launches the Honor 7 with a massive 20MP camera and fingerprint sensor

Huawei announced the Honor 7 at a press event, launching three versions with metal alloy chassis. The different models of the Honor 7 differ by connectivity and storage limitations.

The shooter has Phase Detection Auto Focus, with an F2.0 aperture, 6-lens module and sapphire glass for added protection. The front-facing selfie machine isn’t bad either, clocking in at 8-MP.

Did we mention the touch fingerprint sensor? Well, it has one of them too.

Finally, we have a 3,100mAh battery powering the device, which is capable of not only connecting to LTE networks, but also NFC, Wi-Fi, and bluetooth. As touched on above, the pricing is where this phone really shines. The base model with 16GB of on-board storage will set you back $429.99 for the dual-SIM LTE version and finally $479.99 for the 64GB Honor 7. The Honor 7 will go on sale in China on July 7.

The Vivo X5 Pro shows us his design before its official presentation

One day less for the presentation of the Vivo X5 Pro, and one day of rumors and leaks, on this occasion we have of the second, and it is that various renderings of the last Vivo we’ll see on May 13 have been leaked. Vivo may not be too well known by releasing smartphones with very advanced specifications, but that they are by the launch of smartphones with some truly exquisite designs, and Vivo X5 Pro by what we know will continue on the same line, but that does not mean that your specifications will be negligible. The latest renderings show us the full design of this smartphone that promises to both.

Vivo X5 Pro is not a flagship, but that’s a smartphone of high mid-range with a design that very few phones can match. The processor that will that he doesn’t lack power to the smartphone is the octa – core 64-bit Snapdragon 615, a very competent but less powerful than the MTK6752 chipset. The complete hardware configuration of the Vivo X5 Pro is as follows:

Screen Super AMOLED 2. 5 d of 5.5 inches FullHD (1920 × 1080 pixels) resolution. Octa – core processor 64-bit Snapdragon 615 to 1.7 GHz.
2 GB of RAM.

The renderings suggest us that your design will be extremely thin, however with a 4150 mAh battery we do not believe that Vivo has succeeded in lowering the 7 mm, a profile that still would not be bad. In addition to the mentioned specifications, Vivo X5 Pro Smartphone will also incorporate a scanner of retina in the main Chamber, a plus of security that very few smartphones can boast.
