Yet another week is behind us and it's time to recap the major events from it in case you've missed any of them. Huawei released its new Kirin 950 chipset - despite widespread criticism, the Chinese OEM never gave up on its ambitions to deliver custom chipsets and its latest looks ready to compete with the best out there. All that remains now is to really see it in action, hopefully in the eagerly-anticipated Huawei Mate 8, said to arrive on November 26.
But, don't be too quick to bet it all on Huawei, as the Samsung Galaxy S7 is already on its way, with rumors of an early 2016 launch and also, apparently, a brand new 12MP sensor. Sources suggest that it will be a type 1/2" sensor and be dubbed "BRITECELL". This contradicts previous speculations that Samsung will be utilizing the Sony Xperia Z5 sensor for its next flagship, but nothing is confirmed yet. You can also watch out for the upcoming Meizu Pro 5 mini, the Galaxy J3 and the Vivo X6.
But, enough about rumors, there were quite a few interesting device announcements during the week as well, like the Micromax Canvas 5, with an octa-core Mediatek SoC and an undoubtedly competitive price tag. Gionee also has a new addition to its ranks – the powerful Elife S Plus. Also, there is yet another Zenfone 2 now available in the US. It is dubbed "Laser", so you can start from there when trying to explain which one you want exactly.
In other news, you probably shouldn't leave the Nexus 6P in a back pocket, unless you fancy a quick LG G Flex-style curve redesign. And if you are looking to save a few bucks on iPhone or iPad storage, a repair shop in China can allegedly do some chip-swapping surgery for a fraction of the price.
