Xiaomi

Nothing new from Xiaomi except their all old Mi Mix 3 with new 5G network capability. Well, I don’t want you to blame me. The new Mi Mix 3 5G has noticeable changes under the hood. Now, it runs on all new Snapdragon 855 chipset because it brings the X50 modem enabled the device to connect with the 5G network.

Huawei

How we can forget the Samsung Galaxy Fold – maybe the first foldable smartphone from Samsung. But, I guess the device will not be able to gear up in the smartphone market (at least after Huawei’s new foldable phone). The company has today unveiled a new foldable phone dubbed as Huawei Mate X with the stunning design. Look, I want to be honest. So, I am telling you the device is far better than Samsung Galaxy Fold in terms of the design concept.
