Week 21 in review: Leaks by OnePlus and Nokia make headlines

Nokia and OnePlus are expected to launch their 2017 flagships soon, and the devices started leaking bit by bit. Nokia 9’s benchmarks was the most read article on our website in the past week, right along with cryptic rumors about the OnePlus 5 and leaked specs of three new Xperia devices.

The week was busy as well for all you out there, who are waiting for new releases. LG unveiled the X venture, Samsung launched the Galaxy Wide 2 for the Korean market, the M5c is a new device in Meizus portfolio, and the 6.44 Xiaomi Mi Max has a successor with the same size of display but better specs, named Mi Max 2.
