Here’s to the end of yet another hectic June week that saw big announcements and big leaks. The beginning of June was the Xiaomi Mi 8’s time, last week it was the vivo NEX S and A that got their time in the spotlight and this week the Oppo Find X became official with a slide-out camera module, no notch and crazy-high specs like 8GB of RAM and a 6.42-inch AMOLED screen.
The Find X announcement was shared by the Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition – a special edition with Super VOOC charging. If you’re willing to pay the unreasonable 1,700 asking price and are lucky enough to find it in stock somewhere, you’ll enjoy an exclusive experience.
Our attention now turns to the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, which will become official next week – on June 25.
The Xiaomi Mi 8 went on sale in Russia and France this week and LG made the X5 (2018) official – an entry-level smartphone with a 4,500mAh battery.
The rest of the week saw the usual amount of leaks and rumors. The ZTE nubia Z18 showed its face via its first live photo, a gallery of images shot with the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium’s dual cameras appeared, we saw what the canceled Samsung “Project V” foldable smartphone would have looked like and the Xiaomi Mi A2 showed up in a retail listing in Switzerland.
See you in a week!
The motorized slider hides away the dual rear camera, the selfie camera and the 3D facial scanning tech.
The battery charges from 0 to 100 in just 35 minutes. Even the best fast chargers would only fill up half of that in the same amount of time.
Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro flashes in full in official press renders ahead of launch. The notch, dual camera setup and the tall display are confirmed.
The news comes courtesy of a ‘Super moderator’ on the Chinese company’s official online user forum.
ZTE nubia Z18 live photo leaks online showing off ultra-thin bezels on all four sides.
The phone will be announced along with the Mi Pad 4.
A Chinese media was able to snatch a working pre-production sample and has published photo samples.
The device’s design looks broadly similar to ZTE’s Axon M from last year.
The user guide for the device hosted on the website clearly says the device follows rules set by India’s Department of Telecommunications.
The phone is based on the Mi 6X hardware, but runs Android One instead of MIUI.
Users have been complaining about horizontal lines and white dots that show up when touching or rubbing the screen by finger.
The device is powered by Mediatek’s MT6750 chipset with octa-core 1.5GHz processor. RAM is 2GB, while internal memory is 32GB.
