Honor V40 could be the first to have Google Play Store again

Honor V40 could be the first to have Google Play Store again

For the past year or so, Huawei has gained something like a reverse Midas touch, where every company and subsidiary under its name gets dragged into its US export ban. That included Honor, which has always been promoting itself as an independent but related brand from Huawei and has, to its credit, helped Huawei achieve the sales numbers it has been flaunting. That independence finally became complete two months ago when Huawei sold off its Honor business and that first fruit of that separation might be coming this week.

Huawei smartphone production predicted to nosedive this year

Huawei smartphone production predicted to nosedive this year

The new year has mostly inspired new hope for people who want to leave the troubled 2020 behind. Unfortunately for Huawei, this year could actually be worse for it as it starts to feel the full effects of the US sanctions. Despite its best efforts and marketing, what could have been the world's largest smartphone vendor could end up from number 2 to number 7 even as the global smartphone market grows by just a bit.

Huawei confirms complete sale of Honor business

Huawei confirms complete sale of Honor business

With its resources being restricted and possibly running low, it was really only a matter of time before Huawei took drastic measures to keep itself afloat. "Drastic measures" often imply layoffs, divestment, and sales, none of which look good no matter which way you look at it. Huawei is, of course, trying to point it in a positive light but it remains to be seen if Honor will survive this acquisition by a new Chinese company representing Honor's own agents and dealers.

Huawei promises Android updates to continue, Google still mum

That past few days have been especially rough for Huawei. It seems that fate has finally caught up to it and the US has expressed no plans to grant it any more reprieves. With the expiration of the temporary general license, support for Huawei products in the US has been left in limbo. Now the company's mobile division has unofficially confirmed software updates will still continue but Google has yet to weigh in if it will be as simple as that.

Honor X10 Max 5G giant debuts alongside smaller Honor 30 Lite 5G

Phablets have one the moment Apple swallowed its own words and launched a plus-sized iPhone in 2014. But while phones sporting at most 6.5-inch screens have become common, those with displays spanning 7 inches have all but disappeared. Honor is bringing that back with the 7.09-inch Honor X10 Max 5G but, at the same time, is offering something lighter in size, specs, and price with the Honor 30 Lite.

Honor 9A takes a stab at the European market without Google

Although Huawei is naturally in the spotlight when it comes to restrictions imposed by the US government, the effects also ripple out to its subsidiaries. Recently, even Kirin chip maker HiSilicon has become embroiled in the controversy and these two incidents will ultimately hit Honor hard. Just like its parent company, Honor is putting up a strong and brave face, pushing through with the global launch of its latest mid-range phone in Europe, bringing the Honor 9A's massive battery to a market still heavily dependent on Google apps and services.

Honor Play 4 will be able to take someone’s temperature using infrared

Although it's a symptom for many things, higher than normal temperatures have recently been regarded as one of the signs of a potential COVID-19 infection. That has given rise to a surge in demand and the consequent lack in supply for no-contact thermal readers and scanners. Those devices have mostly been distributed to companies and public locations but Honor is putting that tool into people's hands quite literally with its upcoming Honor Play 4 series.
