Motorola’s new suite of mobiles is coming to NZ soon and Samsung opens three new facilities for AI research.

MOTOROLA’S NEW FAMILY IS HERE

On 11 June Motorola launches a new suite of mobile devices in New Zealand with the sixth generation of its Moto G family and the fifth iteration of its Moto E5.

The new range includes the Moto G6, G Plus (pictured above) and G Play, all offering value for money with improved performance thanks to a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and Android 8 Oreo OS.

The G6 and G Plus models come with 12MP + 5MP dual smart cameras with depth editing software on the back and a 16 MP with low light mode for selfies.

The G6 Play and Moto E have 13MP rear cameras and boosted specs offering great value for money in the entry level.

 

SAMSUNG SERIOUSLY INVESTS IN AI

Samsung announced earlier this month that it will be opening three new facilities to focus on the development of artificial intelligence.

Samsung says the new centres in Moscow (just opened - see photo below), Cambridge (UK) and Toronto may employ 1,000 researchers by 2020, a date that the company has set to make AI features and internet connectivity available in all of its devices.

Samsung already has AI Centres in Silicon Valley and Seoul.
