Last year, camera maker RED surprised everyone by teasing a new smartphone: the Hydrogen One. The company did not provide much information about the smartphone back then except for mentioning that it would sport a modular design, a holographic display, and details about its internals. And for interested customers, it also started accepting pre-orders for the smartphone with prices starting from $1,195 and going all the way up to $1,595.

Huawei is on a roll in India launching four smartphones in the country over the last two months. More recently, the company launched the Honor 9 Lite in the country which comes with four cameras — two at the front and two at the rear. The price of the handset also ends up making it compete with another offering from Huawei: the Honor 7X.
Back in 2016, Google unveiled the Nexus 5X alongside the Nexus 6P. Made by LG, the handset was the spiritual successor of the massively popular Nexus 5 from 2013 and was offered as a cheaper alternative to the Nexus 6P with the same excellent 12MP rear camera. Google also started offering the handset through Project Fi in the US.
The Portrait mode on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are pure magic. It is amazing to see what Google has managed to achieve using a single 12MP rear camera and machine learning while other OEMs are unable to achieve something similar despite using a dual-camera setup on their phones.
The Honor 7X is Huawei’s latest mid-range smartphone to have hit the markets. Available in the United States, Europe, India, China and other key markets of the world, the Honor 7X features all the key ingredients for a 2018 budget mid-range smartphone: an 18:9 display with minimal bezels, dual-camera setup at the rear and powerful internals.
