This Week on GizChina
After months of rumors and leaks, we’re finally getting the much awaited and fan-loved Xiaomi Mi Max 3 this coming week. We know pretty much everything about the upcoming phablet, even going as far as its retail box, which has just been leaked. Always from Xiaomi, we also learn that the company is apparently working to bring 5 new devices into Europe, including the Mi Max 3, Mi A2, Mi A2, Mi 8 and the rumored Pocophone.
Confirming what we had reported past week, Chinese phone maker – Oppo – officially added two more affordable options to its portfolio, the Oppo A3S and Oppo A5. Both phones come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 450s, 6.2-inch 19:9 top notched displays, dual rear cameras and batteries with capacities of over 4000mAh.
Curious news coming from Russia this week, in conjunction with the meeting of the president of the United States – Donald Trump – and the leader of Russia – Vladimir Putin. In occasion of this very important and historic event, a Russian phone maker – Caviar – specialized in luxury phones just announced a special edition of the Nokia 3310. The device is completely plated in 24-karat gold and sees the effigies of the two world leaders together. As far as the actual Nokia company is concerned, we’ve heard very little from them this past week, aside from the rescheduled launch of the Nokia X5.
Exciting news coming from Huawei in these past days. We indeed hear lots of rumors regarding the next Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro flagships, with some reports saying it’ll sport a flexible OLED panel, as well as 40W super fast charging. Meanwhile the Huawei Nova 3 and Note 10 are getting closer, with the first launching this coming week and the other coming very soon in a stunning “Rolls Royce Edition”.
It feels as we’ve been talking about the Meizu 16 series since forever, but here we are once again with the latest leaks about the handsets. This time around, we have a look at the front panel, more specifically the glass and frame that will cover the display. As you can see yourself here, we find very slim bezels, which some may say are nothing to look forward to. Meanwhile other could rejoice for the simple fact that the phone isn’t coming with a top notch. Either way, if priced correctly, the upcoming Meizu 16 flagship series might be a great hit; let’s just cross our fingers while we wait!
