Huawei TalkBand B2 hands-on: Double-duty wearable

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 Ascend GX1 phablet boasts plenty of screen space

Huawei Ascend GX1 phablet boasts plenty of screen space

Our smartphones are getting larger, but not the total area occupied by displays, now more popularly known by the term "screen to body ratio". As bodies grow larger, so do the bezels around the screens. Huawei, however, is saying it doesn't have to be so. It has just launched the new Ascend GX1 in China. Despite the otherwise mid-range specs, this 6-inch smartphone, rather phablet, claims to be almost all screen, with a rather high screen to body ratio of 80.5 percent.

Huawei’s Honor 6 photo samples are stunning

Huawei’s Honor 6 is now available in China, and aside from its very decent spec sheet, there’s one interesting little wrinkle to the Honor 6 we couldn’t quite wrap our heads around. In discussing the device yesterday, it seemed there was a dual-camera setup around back. A duo of 8-megapixel cameras was said to offer variable aperture for photos. That’s a big proclamation, and something we’ve seen with some degree of success before from HTC, but is it the real deal? Newly release camera samples indicate it is.

Huawei starts new tablet line with Honor T1

It's been quite a while since we've seen Huawei put out an Android tablet but the day has finally arrived for a new one. Moving away, temporarily or permanently we don't know, from its existing MediaPad tablet brand, Huawei is bestowing its new tablet with the more familiar Honor mark. The Honor T1 flaunts a unibody design similar to its smarthphone siblings, but its supposed beauty is only skin deep.

Each year, smartphone sales grow. Overall, the market is doing really well, and 2014 is no different.

Huawei Honor 6 Plus shows up at TENAA with two rear cameras

After just unveiling the Ascend Mate7 last September, it seems that Huawei is gearing up for yet another smartphone launch, at least based on this TENAA sighting and a teaser for the company's own Weibo account. This time, however, it won't be much of a big jump as it is a spinoff from the Chinese OEM's existing Honor 6 smartphone. But this Huawei Honor 6 Plus isn't a simple upgrade. Implied from the name, this upcoming phablet takes a few cues from Huawei's competitors in the market.
