Nexus 6P with Snapdragon 820 seen at Geekbench

Nexus 6P with Snapdragon 820 seen at Geekbench

The Nexus 9 is gone. Google I/O is happening next month. Android N will be released next quarter. You know what that means, right? Yep, it's time for a new Nexus device and, since Google hasn't changed its pattern here, we're looking at another Nexus smartphone. Of course, there's the eternal guessing game of who gets to make it this year. But, it seems there's another angle to be looked at. An entry at the Geekbench site reveals a "google Nexus 6P" (with that exact capitalization) that bears a Snapdragon 820 and 4 GB of RAM.

IDC Smartphone Shipments 2016: Q1 slowest ever, Apple falls, Huawei rises

IDC Smartphone Shipments 2016: Q1 slowest ever, Apple falls, Huawei rises

IDC says this quarter is the smallest year-over-year growth in smartphone shipments since smartphones were invented. This doesn't mean that shipments are going down - not exactly, anyway. Vendors shipped 334.9 million smartphones worldwide in the first quarter of 2016 (1Q16). This is slightly more than what they shipped this same time one year ago - 334.3 million units. Less than a million unit shipments difference year-over-year. That is, indeed, unprecedented. It would seem that everyone already has a smartphone. Everyone that would have bought one in the last three months otherwise, anyway.

Scarlett Johansson, Henry Cavill go on a Huawei P9 camera showdown

Scarlett Johansson, Henry Cavill go on a Huawei P9 camera showdown

Who would have thought that only Huawei would be able to do the unthinkable and impossible: to unite the cinematic universes of Marvel Comics and DC Comics together. OK, so maybe it's not the superhero showdown you might be expecting, or even dreaming of, but it's still amusing to see Scarlett Johansson, who portrays Marvel's Black Widow, and Henry Cavill, famous for his Superman role, in the same video ad. And that unifying force? None other than the Huawei P9, whose photography skills are put to the test by these superheroes in plain clothing.

Huawei P9 Lite spotted at TENAA, beefier than expected

Huawei P9 Lite spotted at TENAA, beefier than expected

The smartphone market seems to be adept at redefining words or making up new definitions. It coined the word "phablet" for one. Now it is changing what "mini" and "lite" mean. For example, the ZTE nubia Z11 mini is anything but small and this Huawei P9 Lite is now slouch compared to the real deal. Sure, it has some specs lower than the somewhat controversial Huawei P9, but, presuming it has a matching lite price tag, the P9 Lite could very well still satisfy some users.

Huawei P9’s Leica camera revealed to have no Leica in it [UPDATE]

Huawei P9’s Leica camera revealed to have no Leica in it  [UPDATE]

You might not be ready to put the Huawei P9 in the same arena as, say, the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the iPhone 6s, but the Chinese-made smartphone definitely grabbed a lot of headlines when it debuted early this month. While the smartphone's specs do speak for it, much of the interest was focused on its main camera, a dual 12 megapixel color and monochrome duo. From the beginning, Huawei has been associating Leica with it, claiming it to be co-engineered with the famed camera maker. Recent reports reveal, however, that the branding might actually be quite a stretch.

Huawei announces VR headset to rival Gear VR

When you think about VR headsets, there are three names that probably come to mind: Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Samsung Gear VR. Aside from the likes of Google Cardboard, which is hardly a competitor, there aren't many other competitors in the VR headset space. Well today Gear VR is getting a little bit of competition from Huawei.

Huawei P9 Max leak points to 3GB of RAM, 6.9-inch screen

Huawei is working on some new smartphones and over the last several months the devices have turned up on benchmark sites giving us a glimpse at what hardware hides inside.

The big feature with this device is a massive 6.9-inch screen, but that screen only has 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Huawei MediaPad T2 10.1 renders hint at upcoming mid-range slate

Huawei MediaPad T2 10.1 renders hint at upcoming mid-range slate

Huawei's standing in the smartphone market might be rising even in the US, but as far as tablets go, its offerings have been mildly plain. Early this year at CES 2016, it unveiled the MediaPad M2 10.0, a somewhat decent Android tablet straddling the fine line between mid-range and premium. The MediaPad T2 10.0, which is the subject of today's leak, is, on the other hand, more confident in its place. Basically a more budget friendly, version of the MediaPad M2, the T2 offers just enough specs to survive 2016 with very few scars.

A new Nexus 7 Android tablet to beat your iPad

A new Nexus 7 Android tablet to beat your iPad

While the prospect of creating a piece of hardware that'd supplant the since-the-beginning biggest tablet ever iPad, Google's next device might be able to do the trick. Google is currently placing itself in a position in which it becomes more singular. The Google Play suite of apps has adopted a more visually standard look. Google's Play return program has become more active in the recent past. But what's that got to do with a tablet? Could Google finally be making a play for the space they've never dominated with a device that's just as powerful as the opposition? If the past couple generations of Nexus device are any indication, Google's in a prime position to finally make the real anti-iPad.

Why you’ll want a Huawei P9 Plus in the USA

The Huawei P9 Plus smartphone is headed for many countries in the world this Spring. The United States is not one of them. Why might citizens of the USA want to get their hands on this device, provided a version were made that were able to work with carriers that cover this country? There are plenty of reasons, really - we're going to discuss just one. That "one" reason is the pair of camera lenses at the back of the device, the lot of which were co-engineered by the folks at Leica.
