Hey everyone! Hope you’re enjoying your Pixel 3 XL phones out there. Now that you’ve bought one, what do you-wait, hang on. You mean to say that they haven’t gone on sale yet? Then why the hell does everyone in the world have one except us!? Gosh, we’re so thirsty.

Meanwhile, Huawei’s up to its old DSLR tricks again while new renders of one of its future phones surface. Will this year’s iPhones hurt next year’s? Is a Nokia phone the best one you can get out there? All these questions may or may not be answered, but we’ll definitely tell you about a Xiaomi phone you should be watching out for on this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the YouTube video recorded at 1:00pm Eastern on August 23rd or check out the high-quality audio version right here or through Apple, Google, our RSS and wherever you get your podcasts.
