Nevertheless, we are always flooded with rumors and leaks, so let’s see which one you might have missed!

Xiaomi Mi 7

Just like pretty much every week, also in this last one we’ve had rumors about Xiaomi devices.

As far as rumors go, this week we also had a look at a Huawei P11 Lite mockup, which does resemble the iPhone X quite a bit.


Nokia is back on our list with some really interesting rumors regarding the upcoming Nokia 10. The handset is said to pack a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, a 18:9 display aspect ratio and other high-end components. Meanwhile the Nokia 6 seems to be still rocking an “old” style 16:9 display in its 2018 version, TENAA confirms.
