Week 24 in review: Huawei, Samsung and Archos bring new hardware, OnePlus 5 hype intensifies

We got a few interesting new handsets this week – Huawei debuted the Honor 9 with its 5.15 DCI-P3 screen and dual camera setup, while Samsung introduced the J7 Pro and J7 Max mid-ranger to boost its positions in developing markets.

Archos meanwhile brought four new handsets, although two of those are simply rebranded ZTE offerings.

Meanwhile, the OnePlus 5 is still king of the rumors section, with the upcoming flagship making constant appearances ahead of its June 20 launch. The iPhone 8 and Note8 arent far behind even if they wont be going official until the Fall.
