Meizu has unveiled its new MX5 flagship, which features a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen, 3GB RAM, fingerprint reader, 4G LTE, dual-SIM, 20.7MP camera with 4K video recording, and more, priced from $290.
ZTE's Nubia Z9 has passed through TENAA, China's device certification authority, which listed key specs for the Android 5.0 handset, including a 3.5GHz octa-core processor and an astonishing 8GB RAM.
Oppo has unveiled what it calls the 'world's thinnest smartphone', with a 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615, 2GB RAM, 13MP rear camera and 16GB storage - but no microSD slot or 3.5mm audio connector.
HTC, the company which introduced the world to the Android OS, is expected to announce the world's first 64-bit octa-core smartphone at this year's IFA event on September 4th.
The new THL 5000 features a huge 5000mAh battery, along with a pretty decent array of other specs, including a 5-inch Full HD display, 32GB storage, 2GB RAM, 13MP cam and a 1.7GHz octa-core processor.
The much-rumoured 8-core BlackBerry based on an x64 architecture and originally slated for release in 2015 could come in September 2014, according to a source.
