Motorola Mirage/Shadow Emerges with 4.3-inch WVGA Display

Motorola is making itself very comfortable in the Chinese mobile market. A Chinese source leaked today that Motorola is getting ready to release another high-end Android handset. Our guess is that this handset, dubbed either the Mirage or the Shadow (take your pick), will push the Droid out of the limelight due to its grandiose 4.3-inch screen. Aside from its titan of a display, this new touchscreen device is packing some truly delightful features like a HDMI port, 8MP camera and HD (1080p) video playback and all in a 9mm thin case. Basically it would be a larger, slightly slimmer Droid—which makes us very excited.

If the rumor-mill is accurate and this sleek handset is real, then the Mirage/Shadow will most likely be Motorola’s flagship for 2010. Unfortunately this shabby 3D rendering is the only image being passed around among mobile-techies. Still, it’s something to look forward to from Motorola.

Motorola’s flagship Moto Edge+ packs 6.7-inch curved OLED, 108MP camera
moto edge plus feature

Motorola took a year off from the flagship smartphone market in 2019, but it didn’t give up. The company has returned with the Moto Edge+, a new Android flagship with a 6.7-inch curved OLED display, 5G, and a 108MP camera. It's a Verizon Wireless exclusive that sells for $999.
A huge curved display and a headset jack
I’ll start with the display, since it’s stands out to me most. The 6.7-inch display follows the trend of huge flagship phones but adds its own twist: A 90-degree wraparound OLED display. While wraparound displays aren’t new, the Moto Edge+ has particularly dramatic curves. As a result, the phone has no noticeable bezel on either side (when held viewed from the front).

Google Pixel 4a hands-on video leak

It looks like the Google Pixel 4a may step things up in terms of performance and features. A new report from 9to5Google claims to detail the majority of the specs of the upcoming budget phone. If it's correct, the new device will offer some serious value for the money.

First up, the Pixel 4a will reportedly offer a 5.8-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080. The resolution is pretty standard for a midrange phone, but the fact that the display is an OLED display will make for a better battery life and deeper black levels.

4 things I like about the Motorola Razr and 4 I don’t
motorola razr hands on features price photos video release date review 18

The jury is still out on whether folding phones are truly the future, but Motorola's revamped Razr has certainly thrown more fuel on the fire. Bathed in the warm glow of nostalgia, this stylish design harks back to past glories, and points forward to a new possible direction for smartphone design. I think the Motorola Razr is the most exciting unveil from Motorola in years. It's a stunning device with some seriously tempting highlights, but there are disappointments here too. In fact, it's a strangely mixed bag.

Here's what I like about and don't like about Motorola's new phone.
