Late last month, Huawei unveiled its flagship P20 series which included the P20 and the P20 Pro. Now, the Chinese OEM is looking to bring some of that same design flair of the P20 family down to a more palatable price point, hence the new Honor 10. Like its pricier family members, the Honor 10 uses the flagship Kirin 970 processor paired with 6GB of RAM. On the display side of things, you'll find a 5.84-inch 2280x1080 LCD compared to the 2244x1080 LCD on the P20 (the P20 Pro tops them all with a 2240x1080 OLED display). 64GB of internal storage is standard (128GB optional), but there is no...

Chinese hardware OEM ZTE has just been hit hard by the U.S. Department of Commerce after the company pled guilty to illegally providing telecommunications equipment to Iran and North Korea and lying about its actions. ZTE agreed to pay nearly $1.2 billion in civic and criminal penalties for shipping the goods, making false statements, and obstructing justice. While the financial penalties were no doubt significant, the Department of Commerce has an even stiffer penalty for the company that was announced today (terms of which ZTE agreed to comply with as part of the original plea agreement). American... Read more...
Huawei has been making waves with its flagship phones, though it has been having a tough time getting a major wireless carrier in the United States to go against the government's security warnings and sell devices stateside. That's a topic for another day. What's of interest today is a teardown of the company's newest high-end device, the P20 Pro with a whopping three camera lenses on the backside. That's right, this sucker has a tri-camera configuration on the backside, all three made from Leica. The arrangement includes a 20-megapixel monochrome shooter, 40-megapixel RGB lens, and an 8-megapixel... Read more...
To say that Huawei has been beleaguered of late would be an understatement. The company has seen all hopes of distributing its smartphones in the U.S. thwarted, be it from wireless carriers or from nationwide retailers. Much of trouble that Huawei has been faced with comes as U.S. authorities are concerned about its close ties to the Chinese government. This poses a potential national security risk, which is why Americans are being warned to avoid Huawei products. Huawei has brought some of the trouble on itself by using shady tactics like encouraging fans to post fake reviews on Best Buy's website... Read more...
Earlier this month word was going around that Google might be rebranding its Android Wear wearables operating system to Wear OS. That rebrand has happened and the very first developer preview of the new operating system is now available. There are a couple caveats to this early developer preview of the OS, with the biggest being that Wear OS is only supported on two Huawei smartwatches. The supported devices include the Huawei Watch 2 and Huawei Watch 2 Classic, and this release is in no way geared toward everyday consumers. Google is specifically calling attention to a few features of Wear OS... Read more...
Huawei has teamed up with Porsche Design to create a new smartphone that it calls the “new standard in mobile luxury.” The official name of the smartphone is the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS. The most notable feature of the smartphone is that it is the world’s first dual fingerprint design including an in-screen fingerprint sensor and a sensor on the back. The fancy in-screen fingerprint reader can sense when your finger is hovering over it to wake the smartphone and a touch will unlock it.  On the rear of the smartphone is a Lecia triple camera with 40MP image capture,...

Given the vast number of Android devices that are available these days, it's becoming harder and harder to stand out from the crowd. Huawei feels that it might just have an enviable product on its hands with the new P20 family, which includes the standard P20 and the flagship P20 Pro. Before we get into the more "mundane" specs rundown of the smartphones, let's first talk about the unique Leica Triple Camera system that the P20 Pro brings to the table. In the latest game of one-upmanship, the P20 Pro has a 40MP RGB color image sensor (f/1.8), a 20MP monochrome sensor (f/1.6) and an 8MP telephoto... Read more...
Is 256GB of internal storage – as seen on the iPhone X -- not enough for your smartphone needs? Well, it appears that Huawei is looking to leapfrog the competition with 512GB of internal storage on an upcoming smartphone model. News of this storage windfall came courtesy of a listing for an upcoming Huawei filing for with TENAA, a Chinese regulatory agency. In addition to the 512MB of storage, the listing also shows that the smartphone has 6GB of RAM onboard. The fact that 512GB smartphones would be arriving sometime this year isn't exactly a surprise. In late 2018, Samsung announced that... Read more...
Huawei might be one of the largest smartphone OEMs in the world, but the company is having a very hard time breaking into the U.S. market. The reason for the difficulty is that Huawei has very close ties to the Chinese government, and the U.S. government is balking over fears of spying that could compromise national security. Huawei has now taken another significant blow in its plans to enter the U.S. market. The largest big box electronics retailer in the U.S., Best Buy, has ceased ordering new smartphones from Huawei and plans to stop selling Huawei products altogether over the next few... Read more...
In most major sports, there are a handful of teams that dominate the competition and garner the lion's share of attention from fans. The same is true in the smartphone market where there are relatively few established players at the top. Every so often, however, a contender comes along to potentially disrupt the hierarchy, and that is what Huawei hopes to accomplish with its newest flagship phone, the Mate 10 Pro. Who exactly is Huawei, you ask? While not as recognizable in the US market as Apple and Samsung, Huawei is no Johnny-come-lately to the land of mobile. Huawei is a major player in China...

It's that time again; time for some upcoming flagship Android smartphones to leak ahead of their scheduled release. This time around, Evan Blass has spilled the beans on the upcoming Huawei P20 product family, which will consist of the P20 Lite (entry-level), P20 (mainstream), And P20 Pro (enthusiast flagship). The first thing that stands out to us is the appearance of a prominent notch at the top of the display. While the Essential Phone was arguably the first Android device to embrace the notch (albeit with a small one for its front-facing camera), the smartphone has sold in such small numbers...

Over the past few years, Xiaomi has risen to become one of the top smartphone manufacturers on the planet. According to IDC, Xiaomi doubled its Q4 2017 sales compared to the prior year, and currently sits in fourth place in global smartphone shipments with 7 percent of the market. However, if all goes according to plan, Xiaomi could further expand its reach with a big push in the United States. Xiaomi Chairman Lei Jun said in a recent interview, “We’ve always been considering entering the US. market. “We plan to start entering the market by end 2018, or by early 2019.” The... Read more...
Huawei has lifted the veil on a new thin and attractive ultraportable laptop called the Matebook X Pro today, and it has impressive hardware specs packed inside its svelte chassis. The machined aluminum-clad MateBook X Pro notebook measures just 304mm x 217mm x 14.6mm and weighs in at 1.33kg (a little under 3 pounds).

US Intelligence officials have determined that phones and services provided by Huawei, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer in China, and Chinese telecom ZTE pose a security risk to Americans, and that consumers should avoid both companies altogether. The determination was made known by half a dozen US intelligence chiefs, each of which told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday that Americans should steer clear of both companies. Among the six top intelligence chiefs were the heads of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and National Security Agency... Read more...
