July 30, 2017,
Week 30 is almost over now and it was a fruitful one. It finally brought an end to the numerous Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus leaks when Meizu made the pair official. Xiaomi unveiled MIUI 9 and the Mi 5X and then we have the usual leaks and rumors in the build up to the Fall launches.
8 was the number this week. We saw new renders of the Apple iPhone 8 heard of the expected August 16 announcement of the Nokia 8, while the Galaxy S8 Active and Galaxy Note8 made appearances of their own.
Finally Samsung debuted the Galaxy J7 Nxt and Lenovo dropped the Moto Z2 Force.
Here’s the full list in order of your interest.
It’s once again said that it will be Apple’s most expensive smartphone ever.

Snapdragon 625, 4GB of RAM and a 3,080mAh included.
Official invites are on the way.
These are the first phones with Helio X30. The rear screen can be used for notifications, music controls and selfies.

While the teaser shows the device from all possible angles, it mainly focuses on the dual rear-camera setup.
The ROM is currently available only in China, but a global rollout will follow soon.
The render also reveals a vertically aligned dual rear-camera setup.

The device is similar to the standard S8 when it comes to screen size, and packs in a 4,000mAh battery.
This is in line with earlier rumors of the mid-year flagship upgrade.
The Chinese company’s boss also confirmed that its next phablet will indeed be called Mate 10.
This version will be limited to South Korea (and perhaps China) at launch.
