Week 19 in review: no end to OnePlus 6 and Nokia X6 leaks

There won’t be much along the lines of OnePlus 6 leaks starting next week as the phone goes official on Wednesday. This past week, however, we had renders, photos, benchmarks, teasers even.

Not the only 6 to entertain the leakster community, the OP6 was joined by the Nokia X6. Same stuff – renders, live photos, the lot.

Meanwhile, Lenovo is ditching the notch and is working on a phone with an above 95% screen-to-body ratio, company VP teased on Twitter.

The next-gen iPhones are still a few months away, but word on the street is that there’ll be a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone in the same footprint as today’s iPhone 8 Plus. With the right aspect, it’s not impossible, we checked. Another rumor claimed that a triple camera is coming to one of Apple’s models for 2018. Is it the 6.5″ one?

Google rolled out the Android P beta this week, and for a change, it’s not just for Pixels – Sony, Xiaomi, Nokia, Oppo, vivo and Essential are in on it too. Yay for Project Treble!
