You won't be surprised to learn that a couple of the most read news stories of Q3 were the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus announcements. Sure, there had been leaks aplenty in the weeks leading up to the event, but official is official.
Then again, there was nothing official about the Sony Xperia F8331, when we got a few live photos sent in the mail. That phone would later become the Xperia XZ flagship, but at the time no one knew anything about it.
The launch of the Galaxy On8 made quite the headlines too - no wonder, given that it's basically a J7 (2016) with a FullHD screen, and we all know just how popular that one is. In these months Xiaomi announced the affordable Redmi Note 4 and the Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus higher up the food chain.
There was an unhealthy amount of Google Pixel and Galaxy Note7 rumors (we all know how the latter of those ended), and a promise for a few Nokia devices to be unveiled by the end of the year. Well, that didn't happen, but we know Nokia is gearing up for a return in 2017.
The iPhone 7 sports IP67 certification and dual speakers.
Apple's new iPhone 7 Plus comes with two camera sensors.
The Xperia X series so far was based on the Z series, but Sony's upcoming flagship will reboot the design.
The device features an octa-core 1.6GHz SoC.
This was revealed by Mike Wang, president of the joint management team at Nokia China.
The Mi 5s Plus comes with dual cameras - a regular and a monochrome sensor.
The device starts at RMB 899, or around $135 at current exchange rates.
The leak seems to offer a full set of official Samsung renders of the phablet in three colors, as well as the new GearVR headset.
Two separate versions for both the Pixel and Pixel XL were certified. And it seems they will come with revised versions of Snapdragon 820 and Android Nougat.
The pre-paid and post-paid offers both come at tantalizingly low prices, but there are some specific conditions you should know.
