Another week passed and it’s time for a recap. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ remained a hot topic but it was the Nokia 7 plus that received the most attention. It will be Nokia’s first 18:9 phone and it will have a Zeiss camera and a Snapdragon 660 chip.
The aforementioned Galaxy S9 duo appeared in the the usual torrent of leaks, this week focusing on its Lilac Purple and Coral Blue skin colors. As the leaks pile up we’re getting a clearer and clearer picture of the two upcoming phones.
Xiaomi pulled the wraps off the Amazfir Bit – a GPS-equipped smartwatch with a 45 days battery life. A mysterious bezel-less vivo surfaced in live images and Samsung finally released the long-awaited Android Oreo update for the Galaxy S8/S8+.
Rumors surfaced that OnePlus is working on a successor to its upper-midrange OnePlus X, but the maker denied it, so the euphoria was short-lived.
To complete the tally of interesting posts we saw the HTC U12 in the wild, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S name was discovered on AnTuTu, Honor announced the Honor 9 Lite with dual cameras all around and we learned that the Sony Xperia XZ2 is coming soon.
See you next time!
Outside of the 6-inch screen there’s a dual Zeiss camera and a Snapdragon 660.
This gives us the complete set of four launch color options for the upcoming flagship duo.
At just $99, the Bip won’t break the bank either.
This is one of four main color versions expected to be available for the upcoming duo.
The phone, either vivo X30 or vivo Xplay 7, is about to have the biggest screen-to-body ratio of all smartphones.
Currently live in Germany and rolling out soon in other regions.
Other rumored specs include 4GB RAM, 32/64GB storage options, 16MP front camera, and dual rear camera setup.
Whether the Mi Mix 2S will be the first with a S845 chip or not, performance will trump older chipsets.
It looks like a curvier U11+.
Honor is going to bring the Honor 9 Lite to Western European markets.
A subscriber asked about the Xperia XA2s availability when the support team tweeted about an unreleased phone.
