UK investigation finds Huawei isn’t a security threat

Huawei, along with ZTE, has previously been a source of concern for western governments, many of whom have expressed worry that the Chinese company could be performing surveillance for the Chinese government. That has led to use of its hardware being banned in some places, and probes into whether Huawei hardware has been compromised. Back in 2013, Huawei revealed that it would be launching an R&D facility in the United Kingdom, and that resulted in an investigation into the matter. It has been quite a while since then, and the result is in Huawei's favor.

Huawei Watch pricing confirmed by UK retailer

Back at MWC, we saw some posters cleverly placed around town that depicted a new wearable from Huawei. A handsome device, the Huawei Watch lived up to its billing as being a luxury wearable for the Android Wear platform. Luxury typically means expensive, though — something we were all witness to on Monday with the release of Apple Watch. Some early reports pegged the Huawei Watch as high as $1,200, but w’eve now come back down to Earth a bit, with one retailer confirming it will cost much less.

MWC 2015 round-up; Samsung, HTC lead the way

Though we weren’t expecting a whole lot, Mobile World Congress was actually rather delightful this year. We got exactly what we came for, and even some additional surprises from top OEMs and others. There were some obvious highlights, like the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but some other highlights like Jolla’s new tablet. HTC brought out their new smartphone for us to check out, but also slapped a fitness band on our wrist and VR headset on our face. But that wasn’t all! Here are some of our highlights from MWC 2015.

Huawei debuts MediaPad X2 with 7in HD screen

Huawei's Mobile World Congress 2015 announcements continue with the debut of the MediaPad X2, with a 7-inch screen placing it squarely in the phablet category. As a follow-up to the original MediaPad, the X2 has slimmed down to 7.28 mm thick, and now features a 64-bit ultra octa-core chipset inside its aluminum casing. Other upgrades across the board, including the camera and screen, should make this a contender in a widening range of Android phablet offerings.

Huawei Watch hands-on: Prettiest Android Wear yet

As Mobile World Congress 2015 is now in full swing, Huawei has wasted no time in announcing its latest product, the Android-powered Huawei Watch. As the company's first smartwatch, the Huawei Watch sports a stunning design, clearly resembling a classic timepiece over a tech wearable. We've had a brief opportunity to play with Huawei's current Watch prototype, and right now it's running the same looped Android Wear demo we saw on the very first smartwatches back at Google I/O in 2014.

Huawei’s TalkBand N1 wants desperately to be fashionable

Huawei’s TalkBand N1 wants desperately to be fashionable

Huawei has a new set of Bluetooth headphones that also serve as a fitness tracker, and it’s hoping you’ll like it so much that you’ll wear it as a necklace even when you’re not working out. The Huawei TalkBand N1 isn’t the first paid of Bluetooth headphones we’ve ever seen, but they’re certainly some of the smallest: just 18g despite including active noise cancelation and a nifty magnetic clasp which holds the earbuds together around your neck when they’re not in your ears.

Huawei TalkBand B2 hands-on: Double-duty wearable

Last year, Huawei tried to convince us that we needed a combination Bluetooth headset and activity tracker; for MWC 2015, it’s the turn of its glamorous sibling, the Huawei TalkBand B2. Hewn from metal and leather rather than the plastic of its B1 predecessor, and targeting wearers who might be looking to replace a traditional watch rather than fitness band, the TalkBand B2 is fronted with a 0.73-inch AMOLED display, while inside there’s a self-learning algorithm that claims to cut down on fake readings.

Huawei Watch teased as luxury Android Wear option

The world clearly needs another circular smartwatch, and Huawei is hoping that its unimaginatively-titled Huawei Watch will be the one to end up on your wrist. Expected to make its official debut at Mobile World Congress 2015 on Sunday, but already previewed in a pair of videos, the Android Wear timepiece aims at the classier end of the scale, with a sleek stainless steel casing, minimal ornamentation, and of course that round touchscreen.

Huawei Nexus 8 – is this Google’s future?

The next Nexus device is being rumored this week to be taking on a decidedly more Chinese origin than hardware of the past.

Some photos have leaked onto the web that show the machined case of a smartphone that is unreleased. The case is large enough to be a phablet and according to rumors, it belongs to the Huawei Ascend P8. We don't know much about the case and as with all rumors; you need some salt on the side.
