Rumored Moto M exposed before November 8 launch

Published

on

It’s funny how leaked photos of upcoming products always turn out so blurry, considering how great the cameras of the subjects usually are. The latest live images of the rumored Moto M aren’t any different, but they do give away everything we need to know before the possible November 8 launch.

Unlike the Moto Z series everyone’s falling in love with, the rumored M-series handset doesn’t seem to have any form of modularity, bringing it closer to the midrange G-series Moto phones.

To make up for the incompatibility with Moto Mods, the upcoming midranger will instead have a full-metal body and fingerprint scanner on the back, the latter of which would be a first for the company.

Like in any unreleased gadget, some of the specs and features are still up for debate. What most sources can agree on is that the Moto M will have a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 4GB of memory, and at least 32GB of internal storage.

Those don’t sound too special, but if some leaks hold true, we might be seeing a new processor or high-powered battery on board.

Phone Arena obtained a specifications sheet detailing the presence of the brand-new MediaTek Helio P15 chipset, and GSMArena claims a battery capacity of 5100mAh could make an appearance.

The latter leak is the more unlikely one, but if there is in fact another phone launching on November 8, it might be the 5100mAh-capacity Lenovo P2, which was revealed during IFA 2016 but hasn’t begun shipping yet.

It’s difficult to tell how legitimate each piece of information is, but either way, the Moto M is shaping up to be worthy of occupying the middle ground between the Moto G4 Plus and Moto Z Play.

Our only concern is the origin of the leaks. All screenshots and information sheets have appeared with written Chinese on them, pointing to an exclusive release in China.

Such a launch would make sense when you think about the company being owned by China-based Lenovo, but every other Moto handset has experienced a worldwide release.

Pricing is also a mystery, as this will be a fresh series altogether. We see it falling between $300 and $400 — enough to distance itself from the rest of the Moto pack.

Honor 20 Pro Moschino edition unveiled

There are Moschino cases, too!

Published

This is not a drill.

With Honor’s announcement of their Honor 20 series came a fashion collaboration that definitely excites me. The Honor 20 Pro Moschino edition was just announced and I just love how extra it is.


The phone itself has the worlds “This is not a Moschino phone” stamped on the back in true Moschino fashion. Of course, there’s a matching wallpaper that says, what else: “This is not a Moschino wallpaper.”

There are also cases that follow that design lead…

My favorite, a case that features similar bold text for that Moschino flair and straps that you can even hook to your bag.

Though all designs are fresh, the partnership isn’t surprising. Moschino’s Jeremy Scott is known for collaboration, not to mention, Honor also teamed up with the Italian fashion brand for the Honor View 20’s design.

No details on pricing and availability for this particular version of the Honor 20 Pro is out yet but one thing’s for sure: I’m loving the fashion x tech partnership and I’m definitely hoping for more!

Apart from the main Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro models, there’s another Honor 20 phone: the Honor 20 Lite. As the successor to the Honor 10 Lite, the new budget-friendly Honor 20 variant is meant to be in the lower tier.

The Honor 20 Lite has a 6.21-inch Dewdrop FullView display with a Dynamic prism-shaped gradient color body. It mimics the look of its more premium siblings, but for less cost.


As a midrange-specced Honor phone, it’s powered by the widely-used (within the Honor and Huawei family) Kirin 710 processor paired 4GB of memory and 128GB of internal storage. Unsurprisingly, it runs Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0 out of the box.

Camera-wise, it has three rear AI cameras: a main 24-megapixel sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle shooter, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. In the front, there’s a 32-megapixel selfie camera inside the display’s notch.

The phone’s 3400mAh battery is respectable, but it doesn’t support SuperCharge and it charges through a micro-USB port. For comparison, the P30 Lite from Huawei already has a reversible USB-C. Additionally, the phone’s fingerprint reader is located on its back.

The Lite model is already available in stores in Europe for EUR 299 or around US$ 335 when converted.

Honor 20 Pro ties with OnePlus 7 Pro on DxOMark

Even beats the Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Published

Honor has never been one to make noise on DxOMark’s camera performance charts, but the company finally felt that it’s time to set a high bar for all flagship smartphones to follow.

The Honor 20 Pro, which is the brand’s latest and best smartphone to date, earned a score tof 111 on DxOMark’s mobile ranking. That’s right below the Huawei P30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, plus it ties with the recently launched OnePlus 7 Pro.


It’s a major statement to say the least, and puts the Honor 20 Pro on the map as one of the best pocket shooters in the market.

When you check out its specs sheet, you wouldn’t be too surprised by the high score. The Honor 20 Pro has a 48-megapixel main camera with a bright f/1.4 aperture, 16-megapixel ultra-wide shooter, 8-megapixel telephoto unit, and a 2-megapixel macro option. Indeed, that’s as much variety as a smartphone can get.

In addition, the chipset that processes the P30 Pro’s images — the Kirin 980 — does the same work for the Honor 20 Pro’s photos. The broken-down scores of 117 for photos and 97 for videos simply prove that this Honor flagship is every bit as capable as its parent company’s best.

With a starting price of EUR 599, this is quite a deal for the camera performance you get out of it. You can learn more about the Honor 20 Pro in our unboxing and hands-on video:
