Vivo is preparing a budget smartphone with a triple camera and a huge battery
At the beginning of the month, two Vivo smartphones got into the Geekbench database: V1916 on Snapdragon 665 and V1918 on Snapdragon 710. The last was spotted in TENAA under the model number V1928A with high-quality pictures and a full list of characteristics.
Vivo V1928A will get a 6.358-inch screen with a resolution of 1544x720 pixels, a cutout for an 8-MP front camera, an eight-core processor with a clock speed of 2.0 GHz, 3 or 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of ROM, a memory card slot, a triple rear camera (13 + 8 + 2 MP), fingerprint scanner on the back of the smartphone, 4880 mAh battery, Android 9 Pie out of the box.

LG has filed another patent application for a folding phone
LG recently announced that the two-screen phone will be ready for release next month. A day ago, a patent appeared on the network, which presents the concept design of a foldable smartphone similar to the Samsung Galaxy Fold, but with the z-Fold folding system.
The LG patent shows a device with three screens, with the latter being a standalone device. When folded, the body of the device is about three times thicker than the usual models.
Apparently, the smartphone does not have any ports.
