The OnePlus 5 rumors are circulating on the internet and leak suggests it will arrive before the end of June. Meanwhile, Xiaomi has already issued some marketing materials for its next Xiaomi Mi6 launch, which is apparently taking the wraps off this coming 21st April.

Meanwhile, HMD Global currently managing the Nokia name on smartphones has so far unleashed a handful of entry-level and as well as mid-range phones. Reportedly, it is set to launch the Nokia 9, a top-end Android smartphone, which could be positioned to compete with the biggest flagships this year. Nokia will take the wraps off in either late July or early August this year.
