Forums for devices announced at IFA 2019, OnePlus 7T, and Vivo NEX 3 are open
The last week has been busy with phone announcements from IFA 2019. A lot of these phones will drive their respective companies for the next 6 months or so. Besides the devices that were made official, as always, we have a few phones that haven’t been fully revealed, but we know are coming. With that in mind, we’ve opened up forums for the following devices:
- OnePlus 7T
- Vivo NEX 3
- Samsung Galaxy A90 5G
- LG G8X ThinQ
- TCL Plex
- Sony Xperia 5
- Motorola Moto E6 Plus
- Motorola One Zoom
- Nokia 6.2
- Nokia 7.2
- F(x)tec Pro1
First, we’ll start with the two unannounced devices: the OnePlus 7T/7T Pro and Vivo NEX 3. The OnePlus 7T has been showing up recently and it looks to be a pretty small upgrade. The Vivo NEX 3 has shown up less and it features a design that is very controversial: super curved display edges.
Now, on to the list of devices that were announced at IFA 2019. Everyone from little known F(x)tec to LG and Samsung had devices to show off. The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G features some very impressive specifications for a device not in Samsung’s “Galaxy S” lineup. The LG G8X ThinQ relies heavily on the Dual Screen attachment to make it a compelling device, but the specifications are still mostly high-end.
TCL grabbed headlines with the Plex, which is a mid-range phone with an impressive premium design and triple rear cameras. Sony made the odd choice to skip from the Xperia 1 to the Xperia 5. It features the same tall 21:9 display in a slightly smaller package. Motorola had two phones to show off: the low-end Moto E6 Plus and mid-range Motorola One Zoom. The E6 Plus has some good features for an affordable phone, such as dual rear cameras, and the One Zoom features quad rear cameras.
Next up is a pair of phones from HMD Global, the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2. These two devices have a lot in common and look pretty similar, too. The 7.2 has a 48MP main camera, whereas the 6.2’s main camera is only 16MP. Lastly, the F(x)tex Pro1 is a very different device. It features a full QWERTY keyboard and tries to bridge the gap between phone and PC.
Phew. That’s a lot of new phones and forums. Be sure to click the phone names to read the announcement posts, and visit the forums linked above.
