Xiaomi has released the MIUI 10 global beta software update for the wildly popular Pocophone F1 — otherwise known as the Poco F1 in India — merely weeks after its global unveiling. And while it’s not rolling out to the general public just yet, you can in fact install it on your device to fix some of the problems you may or may not be experiencing with your unit.
It has already been confirmed through its latest financial report that Razer is working on a sequel to its original gaming smartphone. Now, we have an official launch date for the highly anticipated Razer Phone 2, merely days after the alleged phone was spotted on the Antutu Benchmark and Geekbench databases.
Vivo has been at the forefront of developing in-display solutions for use in its smartphones.

ASUS joined the gaming-phone bandwagon earlier this year, when it announced the ASUS ROG (which stands for Republic of Gamers) Phone during its keynote at Computex 2018 in June.

Vivo has gone beyond what’s expected of them lately. Early this year, it introduced the under-display fingerprint sensor on a smartphone, which has now found its way to a more affordable midrange V series phone, the Vivo V11, also known as the V11 Pro in India. In the Philippines, the P19,999 (roughly $371) device is already up for preorder until September 20.
Some phones impress with their design and engineering work. Some, with their bleeding-edge specs and speed.

For Huawei, October 16 will probably serve as a fitting end to a fruitful year.

According to the earnings release, the company is “focusing its resources into the development of the second-generation Razer Phone and accompanying software releases.”
