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 9A takes a stab at the European market without Google

Recently, even Kirin chip maker HiSilicon has become embroiled in the controversy and these two incidents will ultimately hit Honor hard.

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.

Honor to switch to MediaTek away from Huawei’s Kirin chips

Honor to switch to MediaTek away from Huawei’s Kirin chips

Honor has been aggressively pushing an image of an independent company but, looking inside its phones, no one will be able to miss Huawei's DNA in almost every aspect. That includes one of the most components in Honor's products, the HiSilicon Kirin processors that are now at the heart of the latest battle between Huawei and the US government. It seems that Honor will slowly be moving its future phones over to MediaTek chips to steer away from that controversy, or at least until Huawei also gets blocked from using those as well.
