Huawei’s P30 Series smartphones haven’t exactly been shying from the spotlight over the past few weeks. Today, however, we’re getting our first official look at the P30 and P30 Pro. Not surprisingly, these are powerhouse smartphones that can take on the best of what Apple and Samsung currently offer. The smaller of the two phones is the P30, which comes with a 6.1-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2340x1080 (and an in-display optical fingerprint reader, not ultrasonic). Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S10 family, which has incorporated a punch hole cut-out for the selfie camera(s), the P30 features a more traditional waterdrop notch at the top-center of the display.

Huawei is on the verge of releasing the follow-ups to its P20 and P20 Pro. Thanks to some careful sleuthing, we not only have images of the next-generation P30 and P30 Pro, but also a full rundown of what kind of hardware specs these devices will be carrying. Huawei P30 The information on the new smartphones comes courtesy of WinFuture, which explains that the base P30 will feature a 6.1-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2340x1080. Nestled within the “waterdrop notch” above the display will be a 32MP selfie camera. Out back, Huawei is throwing in a trio of cameras: a 40MP main sensor, 16MP wide-angle sensor, and an 8MP sensor. Thankfully, it’s confirmed that the... Read more...
Samsung isn't the only major smartphone OEM that is looking to dabble in folding smartphones. Huawei was widely expected to show off its first folding smartphone at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC 2019), but the design of the smartphone has already been leaked. A banner that was being erected to promote the phone was spied ahead of its big unveil and it appears to take a slightly different approach compared to what we saw with the Galaxy Fold. The Huawei Mate X appears to house quite a few sensors and cameras (we spy at least three) along a prominent "spine" that runs down one side of the device.  The display is hinged in the center and when folded closed, the display...

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. With that being said, the Full HD display measures 6.4-inches and features a tall 19.25:9 aspect ratio.... Read more...
Samsung isn't the only major smartphone OEM looking to rock a folding smartphone in the coming months.

South Korea's first 5G networks... Read more...
Smartphones have typically fallen into one of three categories, those being entry-level, mid-range, and high-end or flagship. There is a blurring of the lines between categories, but for the most part, handsets makers have taken a three-tier approach. More recently, however, gaming smartphones have become a legitimate thing, and Huawei might be the joining the fray. The company teased what looks to be a gaming smartphone on Twitter. It's a short 10-second clip showing a smartphone shrouded in a block of ice, revealed to be the Mate 20X by one of the hashtags. "In the heat of battle, stay cool with #HuaweiMate20X," the tweet reads. In the heat of battle, stay cool with #HUAWEIMate20X. 16.10.18... Read more...
