By Josh Dasey on Friday November 06, 2015

Chinese brands are usually where it's at if you want bang for your buck, with handsets from the country usually well spec'd and well made, even if there are usually compromises along the way. Huawei is certainly one of the companies that fit that ethos, and the third largest smartphone brand in the world is showing that again with the G7 Plus.

There is some light at the end of the tunnel for Xiaomi fans though as a report today suggests that the Mi 5 will launch on December 3.

We are putting two and two together and (we think) safely assuming that the A53 is a variant of the A53m.

Xiaomi has built itself into one of the major smartphone manufacturers in the world by selling products in emerging markets, starting in China and then expanding through Asia and into India.

By Josh Dasey on Wednesday November 04, 2015

Apple's last iPhone launch event was a blockbuster affair. Smartphones, tablets, and even pencils flew were introduced, but there was one much rumored product that was missing.
