Google is going to launch another a Nexus smartphone, and if the rumors and leaked information up to this point are true, both LG and Huawei will be involved. The former is rumored to be in charge of the 5.2-inch model, a supposed picture of which was posted online a week ago, while the latter is said to be making the 5.7-inch version. Some photos of Huawei's model have now also appeared online on a Chinese-language website. What stands out more than anything else in the pictures is the bulging camera, though it's not a circular bulge like LG's model. Instead, the device takes on a periscope-like... Read more...
It’s no secret that Huawei is developing one of two new Nexus smartphones for Google. LG Electronics is the other OEM tapped with developing a second smartphone that will result in a one-two punch for Google’s debut of the Android L operating system. Over the past few months, various details surrounding Huawei’s Nexus device have leaked, including word from Evan Blass that the device would feature a 5.7-inch QHD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. That latter spec is becoming a bit more suspect considering that Qualcomm today said it products featuring the SoC wouldn’t ship until the... Read more...
There hasn't been a ton of growth in the mobile phone market over the last year -- just a 2 percent year-over-year bump to reach 435 million units in the second quarter of 2015, according to data provided by Strategy Analytics. But what's more interesting than the number of phones is the fierce battle for market share among vendors. It essentially boils down to a somewhat lopsided battle between Samsung and Apple for the top spot, with every other vendor jockeying for third place. As it stands, Samsung is still on top, though its phone shipments declined from 95.3 million units in the second quarter... Read more...
Nexus fans who have been following the rumors have heard that Google's tapping two different manufactures for its next generation offerings. One is South Korean outfit LG Electronics, a familiar partner of Google's that is supposedly working on the Nexus 5 (2015 model), and the other is Huawei, which has been linked to a bigger size Nexus device to succeed the Nexus 6.With regards to the latter, famed leaker Evan Blass (you may know him better by his Twitter handle, @evleaks) posted to Twitter a few specs for the Huawei Nexus. According to Blass, Huawei's phablet-sized device will sport a 5.7-inch... Read more...
Huawei, a major mobile phone player in the China, is looking to give the competition a run for their money on U.S. soil. The easiest way to do that is by offering a well spec'd smartphone at a reasonable price, and most would agree that the company's new and unlocked P8 lite handset fits the bill. From the pictures we've seen, it's a nice looking phone, and at $250 outright, it's a fair bit cheaper than flagship handsets from the likes of Samsung, HTC, and Apple.The overall design looks like someone spliced the DNA of an iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and any modern Android handset. It's rectangular in shape... Read more...
Chinese telecom Huawei reckons the fast growing Internet of Things (IoT) landscape will consist of 100 billion connections by 2025 with two million new sensors being deployed every hour. The company readily admits that its network is ill equipped to handle the future load, though it's very much interested in being a major player in the IoT market. As such, Huawei announced an architecture upgrade that, among other things, includes new a operating system called LiteOS.Huawei describes its aptly named LiteOS as the world's most lightweight OS for IoT devices. With a footprint of just 10KB, we won't... Read more...
It’s no secret that U.S. tech companies have been worried by China’s digital security policies, which make it difficult for foreign tech firms to operate in the country. But it’s unusual to see a Chinese company voice any concern. That makes recent comments by Huawei CEO Eric Xu all the more interesting.“If we’re not open, if we don’t bring in the world’s best technology, we’ll never have true information security,” Xu told Reuters. “The only way you can answer the security problem is to keep improving your technology,” he added. Huawei at CES 2015."If the Chinese market is not open, then the European... Read more...
Does your smartphone have a 5.5 or 5.7-inch screen? That’s amateur hour. Think that you’re the king of the hill with 6-inch Nexus 6? Guess again; that’s mere child’s play. How does 6.8-inches sound to you, because that’s exactly what Huawei is delivering with its new flagship P8max. That’s right, the P8max is packing in a nearly 7-inch 16:9 display in a device that is just 6.8mm thick. Unfortunately — and somewhat surprisingly — the JDI IPS-Neo display is relegated to a 1920x1080 resolution instead of the QHD resolution that we’re more accustomed to seeing on smaller flagship smartphone that range...

Will your next mobile device come from Huawei? Don't rule it out, even if you've never heard of the company. Huawei makes some downright sexy looking mobile devices, though its presence in the United States is limited, in part because of a House Intelligence Committee report in 2012 ago saying that Chinese telecom firms Huawei and ZTE pose security threats to the U.S.Over two years removed from the report, Huawei plans to focus on the U.S. market and win over consumers by launching several new smartphones and wearable products stateside, which it will promote with a marketing push, according to...

Huawei shocked is all when two videos of its “Huawei Watch” made their way onto YouTube. Combining the naturally good looks of the Motorola Moto 360 with the completely circular display of the LG Watch Urbane makes for a beautiful smartwatch. Throw in the scratch resistant cold-forged stainless steel housing that is available in natural, gold, and black finishes, and you have what looks to be a winner. However, we have to remember that this is still an Android Wear device, and Google has a lot of say over what these smartwatches can and can’t do. So while OEMs can get a bit inventive with the outward... Read more...
Motorola dazzled us all when it unveiled the Moto 360 nearly a year ago. With its classic, round shape (which was marred slightly by its flat-tire display shape, that facilitated the inclusion of an ambient light sensor), it was easily the best looking of the first generation Android Wear devices. LG tried to one up the Moto 360 with a fully rounded display on the LG G Watch R, but it featured a more “utilitarian” design and a thicker bezel. The upcoming LG Watch Urbane is a step in the right direction towards capturing the simplistic beauty of the Moto 360, but a new smartwatch from an unlikely... Read more...
When it comes to smartphone operating systems, Google’s Android dominates the field in worldwide market share. Apple iOS is a distance second, while Microsoft’s Windows Phone and BlackBerry’s Blackberry 10 OS are considered also-rans for the most part. Huawei’s Joe Kelly isn’t doing Microsoft any favors in an interview he recently gave to The Seattle Times. In it Kelly, who is Huawei’s head of international media affairs, claimed that his company didn’t make any money on the Windows Phone smartphones that it sold, which includes the Ascend W1. However, Kelly went on to make the bold claim that,... Read more...
In Futuremark's world, you either play by the rules or you're banished from the benchmarking kingdom. It's happened before -- on more than one occasion, actually -- and it just happened again, this time to Chinese handset maker Huawei and its Ascend P7 smartphone. Futuremark discovered that the Ascend P7 was using a trick to artificially inflate its 3DMark score, so the handset's been removed from the 3DMark performance rankings and now appears delisted and scoreless in the company's list of Best Smartphones and Tablets. One of Futuremark's rules is that "the platform may not detect the launch... Read more...
It's true that Microsoft's Windows Phone platform is the third most popular mobile operating system in the world, but it's a distant third behind iOS and Android, the two big dogs that run the show. If Microsoft is to increase its slice of the pie, it needs to get more handset makers on board rather than tie itself so closely with Nokia. Microsoft may have received that memo because it's reportedly getting ready to throw a whole bunch of cash at other other phone makers to get serious about Windows Phone. According to a Twitter post by Mobile-Review's Eldar Murtazin, Microsoft plans to pay $1.2... Read more...
