By 08:14 Tue, 03 Aug 2021 Comments

You know it's not the most intriguing of weeks, when it's not a product launch that's the best read article of the past few days.

It's the MIUI 8 global announcement that gathered the most hits this week, even though Xiaomi's latest Android overlay had already debuted in China in May alongside the Xiaomi Mi Max.

Android itself got a name for its next version - N stands for Nougat, putting an discontinue to all Nutella speculations.

Of course there was the typical abundance of Galaxy Note7 rumors and leaks. Chipsets, front panel, battery, the lot, but also a redesigned TouchWiz in development for the recent generation got demoed on a Note5.

The iPhone 7 and its possible Pro version also got a round of attention, supposedly photographed in the wild. The 3.5mm headphone jack is supposed to be gone with this recent generation, though some sources insist it won't be. Either way, one of our editors prepped an thought piece on the matter, outlining the pros and cons.
