Week 31 in review: Galaxy Note8, V30 and Nokia 8 lead the rumor train

We’re back in the rumors lane, where the most interesting to do is speculate on the flagships of the Fall. It’s not long left now until they start coming in, so naturally rumors are going wild.

The only change of pace was when Motorola announced the Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus mid-rangers with new improved cameras.

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 dominated the headlines thanks to leaked official renders and a so-called official specs sheet. We also heard that it’s coming with a 3x zoom camera.

The Nokia 8 was once again in the news as was the LG V30 which will have a curvy front glass and an OLED display.

We finally got some details on the Xiaomi Mi 6c and found out that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL likely won’t have 3.5mm jacks.
