Ahead of its big announcement, the Galaxy S9+ has been spotted on GeekBench. We already know how the Galaxy S9/S9+ would look like and now we are getting some concrete details of its hardware specs.
Nokia will be launching its first Android flagship smartphone which is expected to be called the Nokia 8. We know they will be using the best hardware and Zeiss optics, but there’s also one more thing to look forward to and that’s the software.

Lo and behold, the Apple A9 chip might have just met its match. Some timely information, given that last week we talked about how the iPhone 6s Plus destroys every (currently available) smartphone out there on AnTutu – Android is back with a vengeance – or at least when this unknown Huawei device comes to light.

After having a not so killer flagship device with the OnePlus 2, the Shenzhen-based company is moving towards smartphones with smaller screen sizes. A few months ago, they had unveiled the OnePlus X, a 5″ smartphone with mid-range specs.
Since the OnePlus 2 would be their flagship killer for 2016, it is safe to say they won’t be rushing to replace it anytime soon. Instead, it seems like they are working on a mini flagship smartphone that could go head on with the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact.
Let’s roll back for a second to let everyone know the timeline of leaks, rumours and announcements of Xiaomi‘s purported two device launch. Word had gotten out of TENAA that a smartphone had passed its certification; after which details of the Mi Pad 2 were spotted on Geekbench.
Then on it got a whole lot for confusing, as invitations of the event went out and Xiaomi’s President leaked photos of the two devices. We’re going to try and make it easier for everyone to understand, at the same time giving out two cents on the whole situation.

We finally have some information on Xiaomi’s long awaited sequel to the Mi Pad, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2. Someone who was in possession of a prototype Mi Pad 2 put it through Geekbench and the results reveal some of the Mi Pad 2’s internals.
Single’s Day went by without a Xiaomi device being launch, supposedly it was speculated to announce the Redmi Note 2 Pro but threads on the MIUI forum got it wrong. On to more pressing matters, a Xiaomi device dubbed “Gemini” logged some stats on Geekbench – this time it isn’t a mid-range device, because it packs a Snapdragon 820 processor, under the hood.
The now stock list demoted Taiwanese company has teased us twice already first with a 6th of September poster, then going to say that it’ll be the 29th of the same month instead. Regardless of frustrating people, HTC is slated to launch two products during its “The World Best Meets The Best” event mentioned earlier. A promising candidate to make an appearance is the HTC One A9 (Aero) – a device that for the past few weeks leading up, has leaked quite a bit.
