JUST when you thought the next few months couldn’t be any busier in the smartphone industry, Nokia has launched its first flagship smartphone under HMD Global, the Nokia 8. This comes seven months after the unveiling of the first Nokia phone from the company that secured the rights to use the household brand.
DESPITE the disappointing sales of the LG G6, we still think the Korean flagship is one of the better smartphone choices around — all the more now that it is at its lowest price yet.

WHEN you live in a country where the internet connection is as slow as traffic during rush hour, we don’t blame you if you feel like migrating to a place where you can get reliable speeds — especially when your productivity depends on it.
SERIAL leaker Evan Blass of VentureBeat tweeted that Android
Oreo O — otherwise known as Android 8.0 — is set to arrive on August 21, which is only about a week from today. That’s good news, Android users! Or is it?
MEIZU took the tech community by storm when it put a secondary display on the back of its latest flagship smartphones. And while most other smartphone makers are locked in a race to see which company can fit as much screen as possible onto the front of their devices, the challenger brand from China has found another way to push boundaries — without pushing out bezels to the fringes.
THE iPhone 8 is likely set to make an appearance in September. And though the much-anticipated Apple smartphone has yet to make an official appearance, one doesn’t have to look too hard to get a glimpse of what it may look like.
THE ASUS ZenFone 4 series is still more than a week away from being officially launched, but this early, we’re seeing the alleged price list circulating online.
THE Philippines will be getting a new red version of the OPPO F3 this week, according to an event invite sent to us by the Shenzhen-based smartphone maker. A recent Facebook post on the company’s official page confirmed the launch date as August 12th.
SHENZHEN is widely considered to be the Silicon Valley of hardware. A fishing-settlement-turned-mega-city that is home to rising startups and established tech companies, China’s first special economic zone is also where the OPPO smartphone factory resides.
THE fourth episode of #RevuLive is pretty jam-packed, as we featured five devices. One is a controversial smartphone from Doogee Mobile, and the other four, all the handsets that HTC has officially made available in the Philippines.
IF you look at the quarterly rankings of smartphone vendors from the first quarter of 2016 to the second three months of this year, you’ll get bored because you’ll be looking at the same companies again and again. Not the second quarter of 2017.
IT has taken the company longer than expected to find its footing, but HTC is finally — and officially! — back in the Philippines after years of absence in the smartphone race. (We were able to talk to its Philippine representative about its comeback on May 28.) Better yet, the flagship HTC U11, the phone with the highest-rated camera, at least according to DxOMark, is included in the Taiwanese phone maker’s local lineup.
IN the third episode of #RevuLive, we turned the spotlight on only one device, the Meizu Pro 7. And for good reason; the flagship phone has not even been released yet. It will start shipping in China on August 5 and is tentatively set to launch in the Philippines end-August.
REMEMBER our story about ASUS possibly announcing the ZenFone 4 in the Philippines on August 19? Turns out we were right! The ASUS ZenFone 4 is indeed getting an official announcement in a couple of weeks, as confirmed by the brand today.
AS noted in our previous post, we’re pretty sure ASUS will launch the ZenFone 4 in the Philippines August 19th, even though it’s unlikely the Taiwanese firm will unveil an entire roster of new smartphones in one go.
