Last week wasn’t as busy as usual, mainly because of the National Day holidays in China. Still there were a few interesting articles that we reported during the period, with the major focus on upcoming phones like Xiaomi Mi Note 2 and OPPO R9S. Google was busy the previous week, all thanks to the two new Pixel phone launches. There was a story on the Mate 9 as well.
