Week 41 in review: New phones from Google, Razer, Oppo, and Samsung


The last seven days marked the long-awaited arrival of the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL right along plenty of other Google hardware like the Pixel Slate and a new wireless charger called Pixel Stand. Just two days later Samsung uncovered the Galaxy A9 (2018) – a smartphone with four cameras, making it the first in the world with so many shooters on the back.

There’s a telephoto lens, a wide-angle camera, a regular snapper, and a depth-sensing cam. We are currently preparing our review, which should let us know if a phone really needs so many cameras, so stick around to know more about it.

Week 41 also saw the arrival of the Razer Phone 2 with glass back and RGB logo, the Oppo K1 which is aiming to be a cheaper alternative to the Oppo R17, and plenty of Huawei Mate 20 leaked videos that would appear officially next week when the phone will be announced.
