By 01:25 Wed, 28 Jul 2021 Comments

Another week is now behind us and the past seven days re packed full of action. We got 12 recent device announcements, and many exciting leaks and rumors.

The buzz-word is definitely HTC and particularly its recent One A9 handset. After numerous leaks and speculations, the handset finally got its formal introduction and is already causing quite a commotion.

While we are on the topic of recent devices, the Meizu metal is now official, with a 5.5 inch display and a pretty decent specs sheet, featuring the MediaTek Helio X10. The Oppo R7s also made its debut and gathered a lot of fan attention. It is boasting an AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) screen, 4GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and a Snapdragon 615 SoC, making it an odd upper-midrange handset. The LG G Vista 2 is another newcomer that stirred up some excitement and the same goes for Xiaomi's recent smart TV.

As far as rumors went, we managed to see a glimpse of the upcoming Huawei P8 flagship, the Galaxy Golden 3, as well as two recent Droid handsets and a metal Yu Yutopia. Also, the eagerly-anticipated Blackberry Priv appears to be getting ever closer to user markets.

In other news, Samsung already has its own hold on the trendy 3D touch technology in the works, as hinted by a recent patent. Also, the latest iPhone duo isn't really getting much love in India, despite the hidden bonus of a twice more powerful 10W charger.

If you think you might have missed something fascinating from the past week, here is a rundown of the top stories.
