The Huawei P30 Pro New Edition is the company’s last flagship smartphone that was able to launch with Google apps and services onboard, and the Chinese company has been milking this fact ever since. First, we got some new colours last fall during IFA, and now a P30 Pro New Edition is coming.
The phone that was revealed by Huawei’s own website in Germany earlier this month is now up for pre-order in the same country, straight from the manufacturer itself. It will set you back €749, but if you pre-order you’ll get free Huawei FreeBuds 3 and a mini speaker as well. Furthermore, if you bundle a Huawei Watch GT 2, the wearable will only cost you €99.
Huawei P30 Pro New Edition Price and Availability
The pre-orders run through May 31, with shipments expected to start from June 1 onwards. If you’re wondering what’s new about the P30 Pro New Edition, well… not much, just a new colour version, which is called Silver Frost. It looks very similar to the P40 Pro’s hue of the same name. Additionally, you can get the P30 Pro New Edition in black or Aurora, although neither of those is new.
The Huawei P30 Pro New Edition should be identical to the P30 Pro in specs, as it pretty much has to be to still count as the same device and thus be able to ship with Google stuff baked in.

The ultra-wide-angle causes disappointment due to its unfinished job. The image clarity seems to be diminished in this mode. While the portrait mode has overshadowed that successfully with natural-looking blurs.

Earlier, it was just offering 256 GB storage and 8 GB of RAM. But it is clear that soon we all will witness the launch of all-new Redmi K30 5G with 8 GB RAM and 512 GB storage.
At present, the Xiaomi and Mi don’t show any official sign about Redmi K30 5G as they still list the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage as the high-end model.
Till now, the smartphone is coming to the market with the price tag of CNY 2,899 (roughly $455/€410). And it is understood that the 12 GB + 512 GB variant should be priced higher than this.

I still remember the days when Nokia C series was pretty much popular in the market. The Nokia C series had both smartphones and feature phones. Now HMD Global (The company which is licensed to bring Nokia phones in the market) is bringing back the series in the market with Nokia C1.
The all-new handset was announced in Kenya today. As being the part of Google’s Android Go edition. Nokia C1 will perform all the tasks on the Android Pie operating system directly out of the box.
At the time of launch, Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global, said in a tweet, “Millions of consumers across the markets in Africa, Middle East, and APAC will be able to upgrade from a feature phone to their first Android smartphone.” He further added few-mode words in his statement, “Nokia C1 is a smartphone they can trust – bringing quality experiences at an affordable price with 3G connectivity.”
Millions of consumers across markets in Africa, Middle East and APAC will upgrade from a feature phone to their first smartphone. Nokia C1 is a smartphone they can trust – bringing quality experiences at an affordable price with 3G connectivity #nokiamobilepic.twitter.com/QibUYWxRTn
Design-wise, Nokia C1 inherited some of the looks from the Nokia 1. And you won’t be considered wrong to call this a rebranded Nokia 1 Plus. As on the backside, the phone has a hole for the speaker but in C1, the hole is on the left side rather than the right.
C1 also offers an LED flashlight at the front alongside the selfie shooter. Apart from these two main differences, the phone comes in a slightly different shade of red.
Moreover, Nokia C1 still follows the traditional smartphone design without any popup cameras, notch screen, and punch hole.
C1 offers the same Google Assistant dedicated button which also can be seen in recently launched Nokia 2.3. Connectivity-wise it offers Nano dual SIM support, 3.5mm audio jack, FM radio and BlueTooth 4.2, a microSD card, GPS and 2.4GHz WiFi.
It is sad to inform that HMD Global has cut the corners with network connectivity by not providing 4G signal support. So, consumers will only be limited to 3G networks only. But in my opinion, this won’t make any issue. Because Nokia C1 is designed for those who are switching to an Android smartphone from feature phones.
Nokia C1 Features and Specifications
With respect to its specs, it offers a 5.45 inch FWVGA+ IPS screen, which we have already seen in Nokia 1 Plus. But the toughened glass layer on the display makes it different from all other available options.
In the camera section, it has a 5MP f/2.4 rear camera with an LED flashlight. The camera setup also includes a 5MP selfie shooter with LED too up at the front.
There is 1 GB RAM which is coupled with an unnamed 1.3GHz quad-core processor.
The licensee company ships Nokia C1 with the Android 9 Pie Go edition and includes all the basic apps such as YouTube Go, Gallery Go, etc.
Price and Availability
In Kenya phone is available to purchase at a price tag of KES 5,999 (~$60). But there is no reliable source on the availability and price of the handset in other markets.
Samsung Galaxy S11, the smartphone with a silky smooth refresh rate and the massive battery is around the corner. The smartphone started to make a buzz on the internet just like all the smartphones launched under the S series. Last week some smartphone geeks came across to the battery certification of upcoming smartphone Galaxy S11. And today we stumbled upon another battery certification by SafetyKorea for a smaller variant of S11.
By these new leaks, we can assume that the Korean tech giant is strictly sticking to a new larger cell approach in its upcoming smartphones. Moreover, the same can be seen in its all-new upcoming handset S11. As it is going to be back up by a 4,500 mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy S11 Battery Information
As per the leaked information, the battery cell comes with an EB-BG985ABY model number. In the renders, we also got an image of the actual battery. Although the image isn’t in it’s the best quality. But we can see the minimum capacity which comes in at 4,373 mAh, while the maximum value is 4,500 mAh.
When we took a deeper look at this, we found that these values fall under the line with Galaxy S10 plus and are a notable improvement over the S10 and its 3,400 mAh battery.
Galaxy S11 Specifications
In terms of specification, there are no words on the exact features and specifications. But we believe that it could pack a 108 megapixels lens, for instance. Or it could also boast an under-screen selfie shooter.
It is also in the rumor that S11 would sport a big 6.7 inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution screen. Which will be coupled with a 120Hz refreshing rate that will be creating an incredible motion on the phone’s screen.
For the inexperienced, the refresh rate for the screens refers to the number of times the handset updates with new images every second. The higher the number, the more often images are added to the phone, creating the equivalent of smooth stop-motion animation. 120Hz is higher than most handsets, creating clear, smooth movement onscreen.
In the processor section, it will be offering the Snapdragon 865/Exynos 9830 chipset (depending on the region). Which will be pairing with 8 GB LPDDR5 RAM. Onboard it will be supporting up to 512 GB storage with UFS 3.0 storage.
Price and Availability
Details on the availability and price of Samsung Galaxy S11 are still behind the curtains but we believe soon we will be getting news about the exact launch date and price of the phone.
If we look at the price slab history of the Galaxy S series smartphone, we can assume that it also will be priced around 999 USD.
No doubt that you will get many options at this price from various brands. But also keep in mind that Samsung S series smartphones are best in their class.
What You Can Get At This Price
We all are expecting S11 and iPhone 12 in 2020. And Apple is also planning to launch iPhone 12 with a big battery. And other source claims that in future Apple and Samsung will be using smaller modules involved with protecting the battery on upcoming handsets. Which would allow phones to equip more powerful batteries without any need to increase the size of smartphones.
If you are on a tight budget and don’t want to spend a huge amount on a smartphone then you have many other options.
