Time and again, United States government officials and agencies have warned that Huawei and other Chinese telecommunication companies pose a security threat, due to spying concerns.

Its founder recently doubled down on the company's denial that it's not a spy for China, while also acknowledging a love for his country and the Communist party. "I still love my country, I support the Communist party, but I will never do anything to harm any country in the world," Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei said, according to a report... Read more...
You can only push prices so far before customers start turning away from your products. That seems to be the case with Apple's 2018 lineup of iPhones, which are the most expensive ever introduced for customers. A new report indicates that many Chinese retailers have taken the uncommon step of slashing the prices of relatively new iPhones in order to win the attention of customers. According to Reuters, popular Chinese retailers like Suning and JD.com are discounting models like the iPhone XR by as much as $118 off its starting price. In total, six retailers have instituted dramatic price cuts... Read more...
Huawei is best known as one of the largest smartphone vendors and telecom equipment makers in the world.

Few things are more embarrassing to big brands than mistakes on social media. Android device makers certainly have been embarrassed on multiple occasions by social media folks who forget that when you Tweet from an iPhone, the little "via Twitter for iPhone" tag goes with your post. Huawei found this out the hard way around midnight on December 31 when a post to its official Twitter account was made to wish the world a happy 2019. via Marques Brownlee The post itself was fine; the embarrassment came in the fact that the tweet was posted via an iPhone. While a mistake of this sort is nothing new,... Read more...
Huawei is a Chinese company that makes smartphones and networking equipment, and has close ties to the Chinese government. A new report has surfaced that claims a deal between Huawei and the Washington Redskins NFL team was axed after a U.S. government complaint. The deal would have reportedly seen fans at the stadium where the team plays home games get free Wi-Fi. The deal fell through, in 2014, after the NFL team was warned that Huawei posed a cybersecurity threat according to a source familiar with the matter. So far, the U.S. government and its agencies that have been issuing these warnings... Read more...
Goodbye notch, hello punch hole displays? 2018 was the year of the notch, and it looks as though 2019 will be the year of a more streamlined (and less obnoxious) patch forward. After previous entries including the Samsung Galaxy A8s and the Nova 4, Huawei has stepped up to the plate with the Honor View 20.  The Honor View 20 makes use of a hole in the top left corner of its display for the 25MP selfie camera. This asymmetric design feature takes up less screen real estate than a center display notch, but it does look rather odd sitting off to the corner by itself.... Read more...
Huawei on Monday announced its Nova 4 smartphone with a full front display that is similar looking to Samsung's Infinity-O screen found on its recently launched Galaxy A8s (and upcoming Galaxy S10). Like Samsung's handset, the Nova 4 ditches the bezel and sports a punch-hole design in the upper-left corner for the front-facing camera. Judging by the press renders we've seen, the Nova 4's front-facing camera hole is slightly smaller than the one on the Galaxy A8s. The smaller design arguably makes it less of a visual distraction. Regardless, it packs a lot of megapixels—25 million, to be exact,... Read more...
We're learning more details about the upcoming Honor View 20, and it is confirmed to debut on January 22, 2019. Naturally, the device packs in a lot of hot tech and one of the most interesting things about it is how it does away with the maligned notch that most smartphone makers use and goes with a front selfie camera that lives inside a small punch hole in the screen. The screen has been dubbed "All-View," and one mystery that remains right now is precisely how large that screen will be. While we don't know what size the screen will be, its resolution has been tipped at 1080 x 2310,... Read more...

Another week is underway, and that means another round of smartphone rumors. Huawei and its upcoming Nova 4 handset is once again at the center of it all. The Nova 4 is garnering attention in part because it replaces the traditional bezel and, more recently, the notched design that has become popular, with a circular cut-out for the front-facing camera. Otherwise referred to as a punch-hole design, the camera cutout sits in the upper-left corner of the phone. This implementation of the front-facing camera allows for an all-front display, minus the little hole in the corner, of course. There's no... Read more...
Corporate espionage is something that companies all over the world have to deal with. The latest major manufacturer to deal with the ramifications of corporate espionage is Samsung, as nine people have been indicted in South Korea for stealing Samsung's folding display trade secrets and selling them to China.

Government officials are concerned that Huawei and other Chinese telecommunication companies are a cybersecurity threat. The United States fears that the devices could be used to spy on users and could be easily controlled by the Chinese intelligence agencies. This past August, President Trump attempted to prohibit government use of devices from Huawei and fellow Chinese telecommunications company ZTE. Australia quickly followed in the United States’ footsteps and banned both companies from supplying 5G... Read more...
