Android malware that has the ability to spy on users and perform other nefarious tasks seem to be a dime a dozen these days. However, a new piece of Android malware is making the rounds, and it's loaded to the brim with sophisticated spying capabilities that have never been seen before. Dubbed Skygofree, the malware was first developed back in 2014 and has gone through a number of code rewrites since then. In its most current iteration, the number of features that are at its disposal are quite remarkable. Kaspersky labels Skygofree as "multi-stage spyware that gives attackers full remote control...

Earlier this week, we talked about Huawei's deal with AT&T falling through, with the America's second-largest wireless carrier backing away from selling the Mate 10 Pro smartphone. The reason the deal fell apart according to sources familiar with the deal was pushback from the House and Senate intelligence committees who feared a Chinese company gaining major inroads in the U.S. Huawei has now announced its plans at CES 2018 for rolling the Mate 10 Pro out in the States. Odds are that this big announcement at CES 2018 was supposed to be done in conjunction with AT&T, but we digress.... Read more...
Huawei was set to have a big 2018 as it was finally expected to land a major U.S. carrier to sell its devices through a partnership with AT&T. The deal would have seen the Mate 10 Pro, Huawei's competitor to the iPhone X, available through a major carrier in the States for the first time. That deal has been cancelled according to people claiming knowledge about the deal. The reason blamed for the deal falling apart is pressure from the U.S. Senate and House intelligence committees via a letter sent to the FCC back on December 20. In that letter the committees raised concerns about Huawei's... Read more...
Analysts are hitting Apple and its suppliers hard this week, alleging that shipment forecasts for the high-end iPhone X smartphone have been slashed for Q1 2018. The reduced shipping forecast comes on the heels of lackluster demand for the high-end smartphone at the end of the holiday shopping season. Analyst Zhang Bin from Sinolink Securities Co. issued a report on Monday that claims shipments might be as low as 35 million units for the quarter. That would make sales 10 million units under the prediction for the quarter. Zhang wrote, "After the first wave of demand has been fulfilled, the market... Read more...
TENAA is the Chinese equivalent of the FCC and every product that goes on sale in the country must get its approval. Just like the FCC, TENAA sometimes leaks many details on products that haven't launched yet. This is exactly what has happened with the new Huawei Honor V10 smartphone. The Honor V10 is set to be unveiled in China on November 28 and a week later at an event in London to mark the global launch. Ahead of that launch full details on the smartphone have surfaced. The smartphone will have a 5.99-inch FullView screen with a 2160 x 1080 resolution. The chipset inside is tipped as a Kirin... Read more...
It looks like the next big thing in smartphones will be devices that fold, and the first company that started to talk seriously about bringing them out in the next year was Samsung. Now several other smartphone makers are standing up and saying they too will be bringing devices with folding screens to market with the latest being Huawei. Huawei's CEO Richard Yu has stated that the company already has a working prototype. The Huawei device isn't ready for prime time just yet, but could be ready to launch as early as next year. There have been rumors that the Samsung folding screen smartphone... Read more...
It seems as though dedicated artificial intelligence (AI) hardware is seeping into more aspects of our computing hardware (see Apple iPhone X), and the latest evidence of that is with Huawei's new Mate 10 Series of flagship smartphones. There are two smartphones in the family: the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, both of which are powered by the new Kirin 970 SoC. Huawei bills this as the "world's first AI processor for smartphones with a dedicated Neural Network Processing Unit", although we'd probably think that Apple would take issue with the statement. Huawei says that this dedicated NPU gives the... Read more...
Huawei has been burning up the sales charts thanks to premium smartphone designs at attractive price points, along with strong sales in its home market of China. The smartphone company is looking to improve its standings in the market once again with the arrival of the Mate 10 Pro. New images of the smartphone have leaked out courtesy of Evan Blass. The notorious gadget leaker posted renders of both the front and back of the device in three colors: grey, blue and brown. In a bid to liven things up a bit, the Mate 10 Pro features a lighter shade band that cuts across the back of the device, encompassing... Read more...
Smartphones are a huge (and lucrative) business for tech companies, and when you think about the top names in the market, Apple and Samsung normally spring right to mind. Some might also think of LG or HTC, but there is another big name that has been growing at a furious pace over the past few years. That company is Huawei. Counterpoint Research has issued a report that looks at the global smartphone market and the biggest companies in that market. According to the firm's latest research from its Counterpoint Market Pulse for July 2017, Huawei passed Apple in global smartphone sales consistently... Read more...
Here's the long and short. Huawei’s Mate 9 may no longer hit all the high notes on the cutting-edge smartphone release circuit, but it still remains more than competitive on performance and stocked with impressive base-level features, including rear dual-camera capabilities.In his fascinating book The Millionaire Next Door, Thomas J. Stanley discusses the propensity of millionaires to buy their cars used rather than new. The reasoning is as obvious as it is practical: You get nearly all the benefits from buying used at a fraction of the cost, and the money saved can be invested with compound interest,... Read more...
Chinese phone and chip designer Huawei unveiled its first artificial intelligence (AI) smartphone chipset, the Kirin 970. By combining the power of the cloud with the speed and responsiveness of the processor's native AI capabilities, Huawei claims it can give the competition a run for their money, including top-shelf mobile chipsets such as Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835, Apple's custom A11 SoC that will power upcoming iPhone 8 devices, and Samsung's Exynos family. "The Kirin 970 is faster, better and more secure than anything else available [in the market]. This is the latest technology and it is... Read more...
KFC and Huawei are partnering to combine the ubiquity of smartphones with the yummy goodness of fast food. In this case, the pair is launching a limited edition smartphone to commemorate KFC’s 30th anniversary within the country of China.

Huawei is taking the fight directly to Apple with its new MateBook X. Aimed squarely at the 12-inch MacBook, the MateBook X employs a sleek aluminum frame and a generous 13-inch display with a resolution of 2160×1440 and a screen-to-body ratio of 88 percent thanks to thin 4.4mm bezels. Unlike the MacBook, which it will no doubt be compared to by everyone who looks at it, the MateBook X is powered by Kaby Lake Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, which is a noticeable upgrade from the Core m3 and Core m5 processors available in Apple’s counterpart. Despite the fact that up to a Core i7 can be configured... Read more...
Before the Pixel and Pixel XL took their place as Google's flagship handsets, there was the Nexus 6P, a universally praised smartphone built by Chinese smartphone maker Huawei. When the Nexus 6P debuted, it was lauded for its big size display and collection of hardware and features at a serviceable price point. It even earned our Editor's Choice award during our own evaluation. Fast forward to today and unfortunately the same handset is now drawing criticism by some users who are experiencing shutdown problems. There are enough users having trouble with the Nexus 6P that Chimicles & Tikellis... Read more...
