Weekly poll: how hot is the new Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s?

Notches have become the must-have design element of 2018 phones, but a few phones have resisted that movement. And, ironically, a flat, rectangular screen stands out in the 2018 flagship lineup. Don't listen to that "more screen, less bezel" talk either, thin bezels can exist independently of notches. We present the Mi Mix 2s for your consideration. It fits a 6" 18:9 screen is a body that's almost the same size as a 6" 18:9 screen. Sure, it has a bit of a chin on the bottom, but so do most notched Androids.

New blurry images of Honor 8X surface showing the slab in the wild

A fresh batch of blurry photos has surfaced, depicting what looks to be the upcoming Honor 8X being handled in the wild.

UK banks block Bitcoin purchases with credit cards

The restriction is applied because the financial institutions worry that their customers might borrow cash to invest in the cryptocurrency and might end up in debt. Bitcoin price jumped from $800 to over $18,000 in 12 months, as the public interest grew. The price is currently under $8,000, and banks are worried their customers might get caught up in the craze and end up maxing out their credit cards. The same decision was taken last week in the US.

Samsung to begin production of foldable smartphone in Q3 2017

Foldable smartphones still classify as futurology but Samsung is inching closer to making it a reality.
