Week 32 in review: Galaxy S8 discounted, iPhone 8 and Pixel 2 leaks

In a week dominated by the usual battery of rumors and leaks, a different type of article gathered the most interest. The Samsung Galaxy S8 was discounted on Wednesday and you could snatch one for a cent short of $540. Well, 2,125 people did, but Samsung has since run out of units it’s willing to sell at this bargain price.

A prototype unit of the Pixel 2 was the star of a leak and renders gave us an idea of potential color schemes for Google’s next smartphone. An abundance of iPhone 8 photos and videos kept us occupied, and you entertained, while a live Nokia 8 was spotted out in the wild and duly photographed.

Naturally, a set of renders of the Galaxy Note8 had to appear this week too, as well as any other week, in this instance with 8 possible color options. More importantly, a live unit also cropped up and someone was there to take pictures.

The LG V30 was revealed ahead of schedule in a video that wasn’t supposed to be made public, strictly speaking. A couple of days later LG announced that the phablet will feature a fancy new lens with a wide f/1.6 aperture. There was Sony news too – the Xperia XZ1 visited GFXBench and didn’t go unnoticed, and then posed for pictures the next day.
