Huawei won’t make any more ‘very low-end’ smartphones

For some consumers, Chinese company Huawei is synonymous with 'cheap phones' -- you can still find some of its handsets in convenience stores, big-box stores and online auction websites for very low prices, but those days are numbered.

Porsche Design Huawei Smartwatch is now available in Europe

It was a bit of a surprise when Huawei announced last year that it teamed up with Porsche Design to bring out a luxurious and more powerful version of the Mate 9.

Huawei Band 2 announced, a more traditional tracker

Huawei might not be able to make heads or tails of smartwatches, but it seems to know exactly where it wants to go as far as fitness trackers go.

Pretty soon, Huawei sub-brand Honor would have shed off its image as a maker of less than premium handsets. It might even start to rival Huawei itself. The Honor 9, which it just launched just launched last month, was already on the periphery. With the Honor 9 Premium, it might just have crossed the threshold. While one spec still has a foot in mid-range territory, this so far European exclusive still pretty much offers high-end specs for less than most flagships this year.

The OnePlus 5 has finally broken cover and, with that, we are almost through this year's expected roster of flagship smartphones. While still waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the LG V30, the Moto Z2, and, of course, the iPhone 8, we can take stock of what we have so far and see how they measure against the smartphone that's promised to "Never Settle".
