UPDATE: The front of the Huawei P20/P20 Plus has surfaced online and it gives us a clear look at the notch display and fingerprint sensor placement.
After the Galaxy S9/S9+, the next biggest smartphone launch to look forward to is Huawei’s upcoming P20 series. We’ve seen a couple of renders and prototype hands-on, but this could be the most legit look yet at the P20.
Looks like Huawei’s next nova smartphone might be released this December, dual-cameras and all.
Before the year is out, there’s one more flagship smartphone from HTC that’s expected to be called the U11+. Like the name suggests, this is the bigger brother of its current HTC U11 flagship smartphone.
A few days ago, we’ve seen its leaked 3D render and now we have a clearer view through its certification listing on TENAA.
Speculation has been making its rounds on the upcoming OPPO R9 smartphone, many of which suggest that it could be OPPO’s new flagship device of the year especially considering the absence of the Find 9. Further “leaked” specifications hinted towards a flagship device too, but thanks to Chinese certification agency TENAA, we now know for certain one fact is true — the R9 is not the flagship you’re looking for.
China certification agency has just passed the little brother to the existing OnePlus 2. While it may be “smaller”, this little device’s spec sheet is going to surprise you. Subsequently, this may not even be the highest specification for the One Plus 2 Mini, as the Shenzen-based company has always listed the last number to correspond to a higher specification. For example E1003 would be better than E1000, that’s if a E1003 were to exist.
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.

Earlier on, we discussed the potential of Xiaomi releasing a device that we thought couldn’t be the higher-end version of the Redmi Note 2. Highlighted in our older articles, it didn’t seem to make sense to deploy something totally new to the brand, on a smartphone that could easily be mistaken to be a mid-range device – guess we were wrong, since Lin Bin, the President of the Chinese manufacturer teased two of their upcoming releases, that include the Redmi Note 2 Pro and the Mi Pad 2 on his Weibo social media account.
Chinese certification association TENAA has just cleared two new Vivo phones, giving us a chance to take a look at what makes these phones tick. At a glance, these new devices look to be a mid-range device and an entry-level device.
The much anticipated Lenovo Vibe X3 has finally revealed and it looks like the best phone the Chinese manufacturer has made this year.
We spotted what we thought was the Vibe X3 earlier this year receiving approval from Malaysian and Chinese certification associations earlier this year, but were unable to say for certain. Based on this revealed spec sheet however, it looks like our hunch was right…though not entirely.
An ASUS smartphone has passed through TENNA’s certification and it looks to be a newer variant of the Zenfone Zoom. The phone, bearing the model number Z00XSB was reported to arrive on our shores by the end of the year.
