If you don't like iPads and want a high-end Android tablet, then the latest Huawei MediaPad M3 tablet could be for you. Announced back at IFA 2016 earlier this year, the tablet is about to make its US debut. The company has now confirmed it plans to launch it in the United States

Until now, Google's October 4 event was all about the upcoming Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. However, new details suggest that the company might unveil its long rumoured Andromeda operating system, which has been tested on Nexus 9 for quite some time.

High-end Exynos chipsets are very good and in terms of performance are neck and neck. Qualcomm isn't doing a great job only in high-end segments, but has great entry-level and mid-range lineups, which is something that Samsung needs to work on if they want to be competitive.
Lenovo's Miix 700 convertible was the company's first try to take on the Surface Pro lineup and it delivered very good experience. The company wants to improve the device even further and is now preparing a successor to it called Miix 710, which should be out very soon.
MediaTek was previously known only as a manufacturer of entry-level chipsets, but the company is now slowly closing the gap in high-end segment. The upcoming Helio X30 chipset is scheduled to arrive between the end of 2016 and early 2017, and will challenge Snapdragon 821.

It was first believed that Samsung's upcoming Exynos 8895 chipset will run at 4.0 GHz and that is as powerful as upcoming Snapdragon 830. New reports now suggest that the chipset will run at 3.0 GHz, but will have much faster image processing along with low power consumption.

Samsung has very good chipsets, but they are still slightly behind Qualcomm's solutions. The next-gen Exynos chipsets are rumoured to employ Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA), which will let the CPU and GPU sit on the same bus and share memory and tasks.
Qualcomm has high-end segment covered thanks to the new Snapdragon 821 chipset, but the company wants to make sure it is the number one choice for the mainstream devices, which is where the most money is made and we have first information about the new chip.
