Honor 10 launched in China
Huawei's Honor Brand has launched its new flagship Honor 10 in China. At a first glance, it looks similar to the Huawei P20. The 6GB/64GB variant is priced at CNY 2,599 whereas the 6GB/128GB variant is priced at CNY 2,999. Just like the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, the phone also gets an interesting Twilight colour option. The device is expected to launch in the Indian market as well. In London it will be launched on May 15. The Honor 10 runs EMUI 8.1 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. It sports a 5.84-inch full-HD+ (1080x2280 pixels) LCD display with an 19:9 aspect ratio. The handset is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM on all variants. The Honor 10 gets a dual camera setup on the back with a 16-megapixel + 24-megapixel camera combo, including features such as a dual LED flash and f/1.8 aperture.

Xiaomi Mi 6X or future Mi A2 spotted in promotional video
The Mi 6X was leaked in a new teaser video that has been put up on YouTube. However, this is not coming from the official Xiaomi channel. The device in the promotional video looks a lot like Redmi Note 5 Pro. Since the Redmi Note 5 Pro has only been released in India, we are expecting this new device to launch as the Xiaomi Mi 6X in China. Eventually, the Mi 6X is expected to launch in India with the Mi A2 badge, which will operate on Android One. This also corroborates earlier rumours about the device. The phone is expected to feature a dual lens setup with one 12megapixel unit and the other 20megapixel module. Both sensors are expected to come with an aperture of f/1.8 to make it a better lowlight camera. The front sensor will be a 20megapixel unit with f/2.2 aperture. Mi A2/6X is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset which will be clocked at 2.0GHz. The base variant is expected to come with 4GB RAM, 32GB storage, the mid variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage and the top specked variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage. Xiaomi's new device is expected to come with a 5.99-inch display with a FullHD+ resolution. The battery might be a bit disappointing by Xiaomi standards as the Mi A2/Mi 6X is expected to feature a 2910mAh battery.

Cheaper version of iPhone X in the pipeline
Analyst Ming Chi Kuo claims that Apple will be launching three new iPhones based on the design of iPhone X. There'll be one iPhone X, one iPhone X Plus and an interesting iPhone X design that's going to be priced as low as $550 (Rs 36,000). This could be the device that can boost Apple's sales. The phone will use a LCD display with a screen size of 6.1 inches and a notch on top.
