The most affordable Qualcomm Snapdragon 845-based phone in the Philippines will go on sale from June 1st.

It’s but a natural progression for smartphones to eventually adopt a triple-camera setup at the back, just like the top-rated Huawei P20 Pro, because of advantages like enhanced low-light, image-detail, optical-zoom, wide-angle, and 3D-depth capabilities. We’ve heard Apple will be doing that. Today, that rumor gains ground with a report citing a research note from Deutsche Securities analyst Jialin Lu.
Samsung has been rumored to be finalizing the launch details of a midrange phone with the model name SM-G8850. Word is that it will be called the Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini or Galaxy A9 Star. We may have already caught a glimpse of the upcoming device, thanks to a video and a photo uploaded to Weibo.

We know that Xiaomi will be announcing its next-gen flagship, the Mi 8, at a press event in its home country of China on May 31.

A newly launched smartphone has just outranked the Huawei P20 on DxOMark. The HTC U12+ scored 103, making it the best dual-rear-camera phone on the camera-ratings site.

The OnePlus 6 has recently been released in some parts of the world, including North America, Europe, and India. It’s also coming to the Philippines at a later, unconfirmed date, per official local distributor Digital Walker.
