In this issue of Insider: Xiaomi hints at the incredible redesign of a new set-top box; Lenovo does not plan to make Moto Z4 flagship smartphone; Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL were shown on the 3D render; OnePlus is preparing to announce the premiere date of the new flagship OenPlus 7.
Xiaomi will refuse the control panel in a new set-top box
April 23, Xiaomi will demonstrate the new device and, by all indications, we are waiting for an updated set-top box. Judging by the fresh posters, the company will focus on the design of the gadget.
Teasers hint at the redesign of the case, the minimum thickness of the console, as well as the rejection of the console.
Perhaps the company intends to implement voice control without using a separate device or adapt the user’s smartphone for this purpose.
Lenovo does not plan to make Moto Z4 flagship smartphone
The 91mobiles edition has published the characteristics of the future Moto Z4 smartphone, the leader of the Moto Z line, the announcement of which is scheduled for the first half of the year.
It will receive a 6.4-inch OLED-screen with a small cut in the upper part and a 25-megapixel selfie camera. Instead of two cameras, the Moto Z4 will have a single main 48-megapixel photo module with the function of combining four pixels into one and a night mode.
Inside, an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor with a frequency of 2.0 GHz, an Adreno 612 graphics chip and a Snapdragon X12 LTE modem will be installed. It also claims a 3600 mAh battery with support for fast charging via the USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, a fingerprint scanner built into the display, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. The Moto Z4 case does not let in water drops but does not have full water protection.
It is curious that Moto Z4 loses to last year’s 5G Moto Z3 smartphone in a number of indicators. The cost of version 2019 is not disclosed.
