  • When HMD sent out "save the date" invites for a June 13 event in India earlier this month, there was no information on the product/products that will be unveiled or launched. Now, the company has confirmed that the event is all about new "Nokia smartphones". So now there's little doubt that the Nokia 6, 5, and 3 will be officially announced for the Indian market on June 13. While there's no official information on the India pricing of the phones, a new rumor says the Nokia 6 will carry a price tag of INR 15,990 (around $250), while the Nokia 5 and 3 will set you back INR 12,990 (around $200) and INR 9,990 (around $155), respectively. Pre-orders, the rumor says, will go live on June 13 itself, while shipments will begin June 20 onwards. The handsets will be available through both online and offline channels. Via 1 2

  • What sits between the nova 2 and the P10? Soon (June 12, Monday), the answer will be the Huawei Honor 9. A promo that landed on Weibo a bit early confirms the key specs that we’ve seen in numerous leaks. The star attraction will be the dual camera on the back, 12MP + 20MP, similar to both the nova 2 and P10. We’ve seen a camera sample, though it was too compressed to discuss quality. Anyway, the powerful Kirin 960 chipset sets this handset apart from the mid-range nova and put it closer to the premium P-series. The Honor 9 is slightly better even, as one version will feature 6GB of RAM (though a cheaper version with 4GB may also be available; the P10 has 4GB).Huawei Honor 9 leaked promo The screen will have a 2.5D glass, but the promo neglects to mention size and resolution. The rumor mill can fill that in - 5.15” 1080p. Further purported specs include an 8MP selfie cam (presumably, the same as the P10, the nova 2 has a 20MP front cam). Also, a 3,100mAh battery, Android 7.0 Nougat..

  • OnePlus 5 will have dual-camera setup, the company confirmed on Twitter. OnePlus updated its header photo and tweeted an image of the back of the phone, revealing its design. The cameras are placed horizontally in the upper left corner with the LED flash next to them. The antenna band on top is following the curvature of the back panel. OnePlus also mentions the edge is with a slightly different design, which can be seen in the image above. The picture reveals the microSD/SIM slot will be on the right side, over the power button. The device pictured is in black, so we might get the Midnight Black as a regular color option, instead of being a limited edition like with the OnePlus 3T. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei posted a video on the company’s website comparing the microphone performance of the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 5. The company went with a wide dynamic range microphone this time and you don't have to be an audiophile to hear the difference. Source 1 • Source 2
