Developers of the popular AnTuTu benchmark decided to begin summarizing the results of 2017 from the rating of the most copied smartphones, to which the "basement" manufacturers of all stripes were equal. In total for the last year in the results of AnTuTu almost 17.5 million fakes have come to light, which makes 2.6% of the total number of devices. Xiaomi was only on the eighth place in the rating - most often Chinese factories stamped copies of the 2016 Xiaomi Mi 5 model. Korean flagships are leading by a large margin: the Galaxy S7 family, taking into account the Edge version and all modifications, accounts for almost 12% of counterfeits.

HMD Global wants to restore its former glory to the Nokia brand and conceived something unusual - a smartphone with a camera with five lenses at once .

Huawei decided to abandon the presentation of new models at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona (WC 2018) . Insiders associate the delay with Huawei's plans to gain a foothold in the US market. Negotiations with local operators AT & T and Verizon have already failed because of the latest statements of the US government. Now the company will have to rethink its strategy. In addition, you need to bring to mind a new triple camera, which will be used in the flagships of the family Huawei P11 (or P20). The Chinese giant also needs to ensure a sufficient supply of Kirin 970 processors, on the basis of which smartphones will be built. Another possible reason - Huawei does not want to hold presentations at one time with Samsung. Anyway, Galaxy S9 will attract attention of the public to MWC 2018, so why bother?
