The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 will reportedly be announced in February of next year, ahead of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, so it’s not surprising to see cases of the said flagship smartphone leaked into the wild before its official unveiling.
If you’re in the market for a new smartphone (and you haven’t blown your budget on holiday gifts yet), now’s a really good time to snag OPPO Philippines‘ recent models at decent discounts for a limited time.

Good news, Android fans: The Huawei-made Nexus 6P, Google’s most premium phone yet (the “P” actually stands for “premium”), is now available for preorder on Lazada’s Philippine website and mobile app. It comes in dark gray and is listed at P29,990, which is about what you’d expect to pay for a smartphone worthy of flagship status. Preorders will ship beginning December 11.
