Xiaomi has launched a long-rumored successor to the last year's Xiaomi Mi Max - the Mi Max 2.
The Mi Max 2 is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 processor and comes with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.

Oukitel has announced its new edition to the K series - the K10000 Pro. The phone is the successor to the K10000, launched back in 2015.
The K10000 Pro comes with an insane 10,000 mAh battery, same as its predecessor. Back in 2015, when Oukitel launched the K10000, the company said that it could fully charge three iPhone 6s Plus units and still have 10% battery life left.
Considering the battery size, the phone is a bit bulky, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's ugly. The K10000 Pro has a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 display with capacitive navigation keys embedded below it.

Sony has indicated its new Project Field technology, which allows consumers to use physical trading cards to play against other users digitally, may be released this year.
Following Nintendo's push towards mobile gaming, Sony is making its own earnest effort to embrace smartphone games and get a cut of the lucrative industry. Sony Interactive Entertainment started its own proprietary mobile games company called ForwardWorks, which will adapt the company's popular IPs--as well as key third-party partners' IPs such as Square Enix--into mobile games. Upcoming mobile titles include entries from the Arc The Lad and Wild Arms franchises, as well as Parappa the Rappa and Disgaea.
However, one of Sony's most interesting takes on mobile is Project FIELD. With Project FIELD, SIE aims to tap the lucrative worlds of physical and digital card gaming by combining the two using a smartphone add-on device. Users place physical trading cards onto the device's top, which then send signals to the digital smartphone game, effectively letting friends play actual trading card games with one another across the internet. Project FIELD's compatible trading cards are not unlike Nintendo's amiibos which use special chips to unlock in-game content, and the device is not unlike an NFC reader that processes amiibo chip signals.
"A new game development developed by Sony, Platform "Project FIELD" platform that blends real trading card game and smartphone application! Forward Works provides content! # ForwardWorks," reads Sony Japan's official Tweet.
If there's a mobile display company that's always pushing the edge of display technology, it would be Samsung. The company has recently shown off its prototype 1.96-inch 4K LCD for future VR headsets, and its 3.5-inch 120Hz OLED display.
Samsung had another mobile display prototype, something that was different to the others as its a stretchable, foldable display - in something that sounds like borderline magic. Samsung said that the new technology is similar to other flexible display prototypes, and they're not sure on when this could hit the market at a consumer level.
The company showed off a massive 9.1-inch display that could be bend on either side oef the screen. A Samsung spokesperson explained: "While current flexible OLED is able to be transformed in only one side, this stretchable OLED can be transformed -- whether curved, bended or rolled -- in both sides, above and below".
What markets could we see Samsung use a flexible display in? Smartphones would be a nice deployment as we could get bendable screens that would be like the current dual-edge display on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ but imagine if you could fold the bend out straight again. The use cases for this would be huge, as you could use the dual-edge display when you're out and about but when viewing video content, or email, Facebook, or the trillions of other apps, in 'full screen', bending the edged displays out.
Huawei has announced a new affordable smartphone - the Honor 6A.
The phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 430 processor and comes with 2GB or 3 GB of RAM, and 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.
The Honor 6A features a 5-inch 720p display. The device comes with a 13MP main camera and a 5MP front shooter. Other features include a 3,020 mAh battery, and a fingerprint sensor. The phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
We know that Samsung is working on the Galaxy Note8. This was confirmed earlier this year by DJ Koh, Samsung's Mobile Chief. The Note8 will likely debut this fall, but the first leaks have already been revealed.
The Note8 is rumored to have a rear dual setup, and the newest images, taken from Weibo, confirm this. The photos of a Note8 dummy have appeared on Weibo showing a vertically aligned dual camera setup.
What's even more interesting, there's no fingerprint sensor on the back or the front of the device, meaning that Samsung might have finally fixed the problem that prevented them from embedding the biometric fingerprint reader under the phone display.
