Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max show size isn’t everything

Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max show size isn’t everything

Huawei sub-brand Honor definitely seems to be on a roll. In addition to being credited for making up more than half of Huawei’s total number of shipped phones last quarter, it has been pushing out one smartphone after another, from the Honor 10 to the Honor 7X to the Honor Play and upcoming Honor Magic 2 slider. But before that last one even hits the market, Honor is putting out the Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max, the latter pushing the limits of what it means to be a smartphone.

Huawei, Honor cheated benchmarks and this is their reason

Huawei, Honor cheated benchmarks and this is their reason

Thought the whole benchmark cheating scandal was behind us? Apparently not. Some OEMs have just gotten better at hiding it. Or at least that’s the picture that Huawei is painting after it was caught red-handed using a benchmark detection feature. But unlike other manufacturers in the past, it didn’t deny the allegation but instead tried to justify why it was doing so. Bottom line: its competitors are doing it anyway and trying to cheat it out of the market.

Honor Play brings gaming chops to global markets (except one)

Honor Play brings gaming chops to global markets (except one)

Gaming smartphones seems to be the new sub-trend in the market. After all, if your device can run resource-intensive games without blowing up, it can do anything. But while the likes of the ASUS ROG Phone really takes the idea of a gaming smartphone to the extreme, others, like Huawei sub-brand Honor, is taking a slightly different and more moderate path. The Honor Play won’t make it look like you’re carrying a miniaturized gaming PC but promises to give you that gaming console feeling instead. And it’s coming to almost all markets around the world and you probably won’t be shocked where it isn’t.

Today we've got the Honor Play in the house ready to roll up on the likes of Xiaomi's Poco F1 and the OnePlus 6. This device is the definition of budget-level cost with flagship-aimed specs.

Huawei Honor 8X confirms a new notch trend

Huawei Honor 8X confirms a new notch trend

The notch has become an inescapable fact of smartphone life this year but some manufacturers just refuse to live in Apple’s shadow. There’s a certain irony in how Chinese manufacturers often accused of always aping the iPhone’s designs are the very ones trying to differentiate themselves from the crowd. But not everyone wants or can afford elevating cameras and some seem to have a found another path forward. That is exemplified by the “V” style notch on the OPPO R17, OPPO F9, and, soon, the Honor 8X.

Huawei Honor Note 10 is a gaming tablet in smartphone clothing

Huawei Honor Note 10 is a gaming tablet in smartphone clothing

The rise of almost (but not completely) bezel-less screens have allowed smartphone makers to use larger displays on phones while barely increasing the device’s actual physical size. Nowhere is that, perhaps, more utilized than in this new Honor Note 10 from Huawei’s sub-brand. Leaked to have a large screen, we certainly didn’t expect how large it would be considering its deceptive size that belies the 7-inch screen covering most of its face.

Honor 10 will give Huawei flagships a run for their money

Honor 10 will give Huawei flagships a run for their money

While ZTE trading has come to a screeching halt because of recent US export sanctions, its business as usual for Huawei sub-brand Honor. In fact, the company could use ZTE's woes to its advantage. It has just launched the Honor 10 and, as expected, it's sporting heavyweight features in a lightweight price. But while the Honor 10 is definitely putting most Android flagships on notice, it is Huawei's own premium smartphones that may be upstaged by the more affordable brand.

Huawei Honor 10 leaked photo shows a Huawei P20 look-alike

Huawei Honor 10 leaked photo shows a Huawei P20 look-alike

Huawei and its sub-brand Honor are about to make things a bit more confusing. Last year, the Honor View 10, V10 in some markets, made some scratch their heads, offering something almost equal to the then newly released Huawei Mate 10. Now it seems that they're doing it again, this time with the still to be announced Honor 10. At least based on this new leak, Honor's new flagship will closely resemble Huawei's, but might even offer more than the P20 in one aspect.
