Help regarding hardware

I wanted to know what the difference between Lilygo TTGO T-Beam and Lilygo TTGO Lora, is exactly. Is one newer/better than the other? I want to buy the newest with the most features.

Another question I had is about frequency, according to this website, Bahrain has a frequency plan of EU863-870. Does this mean I will have to purchase the 868Mhz model?

Thank you for reading and any help would be much appreciated!

Lora is smaller, cheaper but has no GPS (and you need to figure out a lipo battery for it).

T-Beam has GPS and 18650 battery holder, some versions have the improved SX1262.

T-Echo would be the “newest with the most features” from Lilygo, based on BLE 5.0 nRF52 chip (no WiFi), comes ready-to-go with e-ink display, battery & case but is still a work in progress.

It really depends on your needs, for in depth feature list: Overview | Meshtastic
