We saw a hands-on video of the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro and Xiaomi confirmed that it will be launched alongside the Mi Mix 4 at a special event next week – September 24. Incidentally Realme X2 will become official in China on the same September 24 date. .

Meanwhile, the Redmi Note 8 Pro’s European prices were leaked – the starting €259 nets you a 6GB+64GB unit and you could jump to 6GB+128GB for €289.

OnePlus decided to go ahead and show off the design of the 7T in Blue while a press render of the 7T Pro leaked. The pair will become official on September 26, but the US will only get the non-Pro 7T.
