Week 39 in review: Google Pixel 2 specs leak, Nokia 3310 now has 3G

When official announcements are scarce, leaksters arise. Such was the situation in Week 39 – the Google Pixel 2, the Samsung Galaxy A-series 2018 and the Huawei Mate 10 series popped up before their respective announcements.

The Essential PH-1 was supposed to be a breakthrough device, but apparently, the company sold only 5,000 devices since its launch.

Apple launched the iOS 11 and bugs started appearing. Cupertino issued a v11.0.1 update which supposedly fixes various issues.

On Thursday HMD Global finally brought us the Nokia 3310 with 3G support, meaning it will finally arrive in Japan, Korea, Singapore, the US and other countries that moved away from 2G networks.

Here’s what were the most read articles throughout the past week 39.
