A week after the launch of the much awaited OnePlus 6T, the handset is already breaking records, at least as far as unboxing are concerned with a whopping 559 phones getting unboxed at the same time.

In addition to the ordinary OnePlus 6T, the company also unveiled its new Thunder Purple color variant; click here to check it out.

If you’re looking for something more affordable, OnePlus officially released A pair of USB Type-C headphones, the Bullets 2T.


The launch of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 brought some neat software features such as the Night Scene mode and 960fps slow motion videos. Now these features are also available on older Mi flagships including the Mi 8, Mi 8 Pro and Mi MIX 2S.

Meanwhile if you really a Mi MIX 3, you might want to wait for the shiny new Emerald version to go on sale.



While Huawei patents new designs for their upcoming handsets, the already on sale Huawei Mate 20 series brings the company around $29 million dollars in just a few hours. That’s not surprising though as Huawei leads the Chinese smartphone market.
