Honor 6X gets its promised Nougat, EMUI 5.0 update

Honor 6X gets its promised Nougat, EMUI 5.0 update

When Huawei sub-brand Honor launched the Honor 6X earlier this year, the market was introduced to a more or less palatable smartphone that already felt outdated even before it came out. That was largely in part thanks to the smartphone shipping with Android 6.0 Marshmallow instead of what was already available for new devices. Honor, however, promised that the smartphone will soon get its sweet Nougat, and that "soon" is now.

Alleged Honor 9 photos leak, copycat accusations fly

Alleged Honor 9 photos leak, copycat accusations fly

Although there are definitely exceptions, it's quite difficult these days to come up with an original smartphone design. It has become a race to who gets to put it out publicly, with the rest left to be called imitators. Sometimes even thieves. Those will probably be the accusations and criticisms that Huawei sub-brand Honor will face when it puts out its next flagship, dubbed the Honor 9. Because, as early as now, based on an uncorroborated leak, it's already being called a Xiaomi Mi 6 copycat.

Huawei Honor 8 Pro Review

Huawei Honor 8 Pro Review

Just when you thought you've seen all the Android flagships that this half of 2017 has to offer, along comes Honor to blow your presumptions away. Many might brush off this Huawei sub-brand because it is, well, a sub-brand. That, however, would be a grave mistake with the Honor 8 Pro. Because as far as this latest Honor flagship is concerned, it could have been called the "Huawei P10 Plus Lite". Which is to say, it's pretty darned impressive. Especially for something that comes well under this year's high-end smartphone prices.

Huawei Honor 8 Pro, a.k.a. Honor V9, seen in Russia

Huawei Honor 8 Pro, a.k.a. Honor V9, seen in Russia

A rose by any other name, as the quote goes. Huawei sub-brand is not above using different names for the same phones that are available in different markets, whether to keep things exciting or confusing. Case in point is the Honor 8 Pro, which, by name, seems to take after the Honor 8 and Honor 8 Lite. But you won't be blamed if it looks and sounds familiar, because it is pretty much the same Honor V9 that was launched in China late last month.

Honor VR Camera is a custom-made Insta360 Air

It’s actually been a while since we’ve seen new equipment that tries to actually create VR-related content rather than just consuming them. Professional VR cameras still cost an arm and a leg and probably more, but there are always cheaper and more portable solutions around. Some of those come from Insta360, a company that specializes in smartphone-compatible 360-degree cameras. It has revealed that Huawei has chosen it to help create the Honor VR Camera for Android smartphones.

Honor V9 unveiled, Honor 8 Lite launches in China

While some companies are scrambling to get ready for one of the world’s biggest mobile industry events next week, others are trying to avoid the maddening rush instead. Huawei sub-brand Honor, for example, has just taken the covers off not one but two smartphones. The Honor 8 Lite, which was actually already revealed in Finland earlier this month, is now heading to China. The Honor V9, on the other hand, is a totally new and totally not mid-range smartphone that will hopefully also become available in other markets.

Huawei Honor 8, Sony Xperia Z5, Z3+, Z4 Tablet Android Nougat update released

Huawei Honor 8, Sony Xperia Z5, Z3+, Z4 Tablet Android Nougat update released

Just yesterday, Google updated its developer dashboard to indicate the spread of Android versions across the market. It inevitably revealed the rather snail-paced rollout of Android Nougat, be it 7.0 or 7.1.1, to devices. Seemingly making up for lost time, two manufacturers are kicking off the rollout of Android Nougat for devices, with a little twist. Sony is actually re-releasing its Nougat update to the Xperia Z5, Z3+ and Z4 Tablet, while the Honor 8 is getting the update via a shiny new EMUI 5.0.

Huawei Honor 8 Lite launched to take on premium sibling

Huawei Honor 8 Lite launched to take on premium sibling

It hasn't even been a year since Huawei sub-brand Honor launched the glass-toting Honor 8 in Europe and, later, in the US as well. Now, however, Honor is already giving it some competition. It has just launched the Honor 8 Lite in Finland and, as the name so clearly says, it's designed to be a mid-range alternative to the premium model. But given how little it deviates from the Honor 8, the Honor 8 Lite is pretty much a more affordable rival to Honor's own flagship.
