The most affordable Qualcomm Snapdragon 845-based phone in the Philippines will go on sale from June 1st. We are, of course, talking about the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, which will be sold at the two official Mi retail locations in the country — one at SM Megamall and the other at TriNoma — for the base price of P27,990 (approximately $533).

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.
