Week 47 in review: Xiaomi Mi Mix developments, Nokia and Surface Phone rumors
The past week was busy with announcements, but other news still somehow managed to take the cake. The Xiaomi MI Mix, for one, continues to captivate the public's attention. Along with the Mi Note 2, the two phablets are easily among the most popular right now.
It is not surprising that fans now want to see more of the futuristic design, especially that of the Mi Mix. This was likely the source of many of the rumors, concerning the Mi Mix Nano, that have been making the rounds. Unfortunately Xiaomi was quick to burst the bubble by denying the handset's existence.
However, there is still the alleged white color variant of the handset to look forward to. Also, the Mi 5c might revolutionize the budget market and gather even more fan love once it eventually arrives on the market.
Another major topic of discussion this last week has been the future of Nokia. The legendary brand will be delivering two new flagship models with a Snapdragon 820 SoC. Then there is Microsoft, which is naturally the direction in which every fan is looking for the fickle future of Windows-powered smartphones. While it is early to say, the US giant's CEO already mostly confirmed that they are still in business and plotting future steps.
Last, but not least, there are a few other interesting device leaks to check out as well. These include the Gionee M2017, Huawei P10, ZUK Edge, Meizu Pro 7 and Oppo Find 9.
Some come from Nougat itself, but TouchWiz is getting a new coat of paint too.
Xiaomi Mi Mix lands in GSMArena, we'll be giving it our full review treatment.
Carl Zeiss-branded camera too, all of those in a waterproof metal body.
Made official late last month, the device is currently only available in black color option.
This will be a lower-end alternative to the Mi 5s that launched last month..
The device is powered by an octa-core 1.958GHz processor and sports a 5.7-inch QHD display.
The Glossy Black hue for the Galaxy S7 edge is real, see it for yourselves.
Desire 10 pro priced at around $385 while the Desire 10 evo will be arriving later.
The new color launch will follow the recent unveiling of the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 edge.
Huawei P10's front panel has leaked online and it hints for an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner beneath.
The Windows assistant comes as the default option for Xiaomi's bezel-less phone.
A forced restart will fix the issue, but the loophole still remains.
The rumor came courtesy of popular tipster Roland Quandt on Twitter.
The news comes from Apple speculator-in-chief Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities.
Other key specs revealed by AnTuTu are inline with what we already know: Snapdragon 821 SoC, full HD display, 64GB storage, and 13MP/8MP camera combo.
Just as previously rumored, the pair appear to be identical in both hardware and appearance.
Satya Nadella mostly confirmed that the US giant will be throwing its gloves back in the smartphone ring.
Last year's flagship will be getting some Nougat goodness soon.
Now comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Also available in gray.
The oft-rumored entry-level flagship phone will come with some very good innards for its alleged $144 price.
Meizu Pro 7 leaks yet again, the new live photos hints for the departure of the mTouch key.
The handset has been rumored for years now, but Oppo hasn't made it official so far.
So it looks like there's no chance for us to see a smaller Mi Mix in the near future.
