Huawei has finally announced the Mate 8. Sporting the new HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor, the new 6-inch smartphone features the same 1080p display as the Mate 7; albeit with a much large colour gamut. As it is only due next year, the phone will ship with Huawei’s MUI 4.0, which is based on Android 6.0.
OnePlus’ USB Type-C cables and adapters have been criticised heavily by Benson Leung, a Google engineer.

Samsung hasn’t had much success in the smartwatch market, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. Its first ever iteration of the Galaxy Gear was groundbreaking (though eventually forgettable), and last year’s Gear S wasn’t that well-received, which could be attributed to its imposing size. The Gear S2, however, changes everything. Not only is it the Korean company’s first-ever circular smartwatch, it can also be paired with a non-Samsung device – something that was never possible with any of its other smartwatches.
While it’s clear that Samsung went back to the drawing board with the Gear S2, is it any good? Well, the answer is anything but simple, although one thing is certain: it’s the smartwatch to beat.
