Week 39 in review: Realme 2 Pro and Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro debut


A couple of phones debuted this week, but you don’t have to look further than our top 10 trending chart to know which one was more interesting – the Realme 2 Pro debut is easily the event of week 39.

Meanwhile Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi Note 6 Pro, which is hardly a great improvement over its predecessor. It does bring the notch trend to the Xiaomi Note lineup, so it has that going for it, we guess.

Meanwhile as an announcement-filled October is on our doorstep we are getting all sorts of teasers and leaks. OnePlus 6T, Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL as well as Nokia 7.1 all made headlines. We also got LG officially talking about the V40 ThinQ in what was half an announcement, half a teaser for next week’s event.

We also got more details of the puzzle that are the iPhone XS and XS Max launch as those two hit their second wave of countries.

Check out the full list of popular stories to make sure you haven’t missed anything.
