This week in Android: Huawei Mate 20 Pro review, OnePlus 6T hands-on, and more

OnePlus 6T back

It’s November, which means #Phonepacolypse is officially over. What better way to round out the month than with the introduction to one of the most anticipated phones in the industry, the OnePlus 6T. OnePlus’ refresh of the OnePlus 6 loses the headphone jack and adds an in-screen fingerprint sensor. Plus it has a great camera night mode, and is launching on a U.S. carrier for the first time. All that makes the OnePlus 6T a threat to flagships everywhere.

Speaking of flagships, our review of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has dropped and boy is this a specced out monster. Triple cameras, a 40 megapixel sensor, and all the trimmings. It definitely won’t be coming to a U.S. carrier any time soon, but that’s ok — this phone has a lot going for it already.

Also, our Google Home Hub review is in — security leaks and all — Spotify is giving away Google Home Minis and Honor has a phone and a gaggle of devices for you as well. We have a folding phone triple threat launching between now and CES, and we’re going to learn a lot about these folding screens in the next few months. So keep on scrolling down — there’s a lot to see this week.
