The first Nokia tablet running Android is the T20, and with a 2K 10.4-inch screen and 64GB storage aims to be an affordable and long-lasting Android alternative to competitors and iPads, while the new G50 5G smartphone is the latest 5G model to enter the Australian market.
Launching on October 19 in the US, and thus October 20 in Australia, is the new Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro smartphones, with persistent rumours a Google Pixel Fold with foldable screen is set to be the big surprise.
vivo's Y52 5G is a worthy addition to the ever-increasing range of low-budget smartphones that include the new technology and take aim squarely at the lower end of the market.
Retailing for $349 at retail stores while Vodafone offers it to post-paid users for just $299, the TCL 20 R 5G wants to prove you don't need to spend $1000+ on a phone, nor need fancy folding screens, to have a great smartphone experience.

TCL's NXTWEAR G wearable display glasses have finally arrived in store, replicating a 140-inch screen on a pair of lightweight glasses that connect via cable to anything with USB-C video out for $899 from Harvey Norman, with 6 months free Optus Sport subscription.
Imagine a next-gen smartphone with no notches or punch-hole cameras, that also doesn't require a pop-up camera due to next-gen under-screen camera (USC) tech: well, imagine no longer as Oppo has demonstrated it.
Set to launch in the Australian spring, Google's Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will feature a chip custom-designed by Google with AI and ML smarts called "Tensor", but whether it will make Apple, Qualcomm, Intel or anyone else tense is yet to be seen.
5G smartphones are fast becoming the norm, with Oppo expanding its A-series line-up with its third 5G model with the A94, sitting alongside the A74 5G and A54 5G.
