Huawei to get 90-day extension, company’s fate remains in limbo

Huawei to get 90-day extension, company’s fate remains in limbo

The news around the Huawei controversy may have wound down a bit after the company was granted a small reprieve and hope of an eventual exception but things are about to kick up again tomorrow when that initial grant of mercy ends. Huawei was initially granted a 90-day exception to purchase some, but not all, American products it needs to maintain its business, including Google's Android software, but that time will end August 19. Sources, however, claim that Huawei will be granted another temporary general license for yet another 90 days.

Huawei Mate 30 could boast very fast wireless charging

Samsung has finally updated its smartphone charging capabilities, which means its competitors have to step up their game.

Huawei P30 first phone with front-facing camera Night Mode

There's a new feature in town - for the front-facing cameras of the world, anyway. This is the so-called Super Night Mode, so-called for its abilities that are... pretty much the same as non-Super Night Mode. But what better way to look like you're the best than to put "Super" in front of your name?

Huawei Mate 20X teardown reveals chinks in Huawei’s 5G armor

Huawei Mate 20X teardown reveals chinks in Huawei’s 5G armor

Huawei's future has been in question ever since it has been put on the US' blacklist, depriving it of access to US hardware and software. In response, it has been painting an image of self-efficiency while also trying to demonstrate what the rest of the market would lose out on without Huawei. One of those is in the nascent 5G technology, which the company first debuted on the Mate 20X earlier this year. It turns out, however, that it may have spoken too soon and its 5G mobile chip is anything worth boasting about.

Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro cases reveal an odd design change

Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro cases reveal an odd design change

Apple and Google are taking a lot of heat for their square camera bumps but they aren't then first ones to use that design. Both credit and blame should be laid on Huawei, whose Mate 20 phones last year bore the square cut. It is almost ironic, then, that Huawei itself is moving slightly away from that new convention in a small but very visible way.

Huawei OS sub-$300 phone may be Android shock to ship

Huawei OS sub-$300 phone may be Android shock to ship

So wait a second, didn't we just hear from Huawei that their non-Android operating system wasn't for phones? Sort of. The China-based brand Huawei's mysterious operating system goes by the name of HongMeng OS, or ARK OS, and it's been the subject of some speculation for the past several months. Recently it seemed that the company suggested they'd not be replacing Android with this OS for phones - but there's a pretty important (and rather easy-to-forget) bit of that statement that's of vital importance at this moment.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro camera leak preempts Galaxy Note 10 launch

In just three days, Samsung will be formally announcing the Galaxy Note 10. Like it or not, and some will definitely not, it represents Samsung's next big step forward in design and features. One of the things that seem to be disappointing fans is the less than astounding specs for the main camera. To add insult to injury, a leak is now painting a picture of a Huawei Mate 30 Pro that will outshine the Galaxy Note 10 even before either phone is able to launch.

Honor Smart TV features an odd popup camera

Honor Smart TV features an odd popup camera

Honor is probably known for two things in the smartphone world. First, it is a known Huawei sub-brand. Second, it sells smartphones like crazy thanks to affordable prices that, ironically, rival its parent company. That may no longer be enough for Honor, though, and it is now jumping on the smart TV scene. But it isn't just presenting a simple and straightforward smart TV though. Almost mirroring its smartphones, Huawei's "Smart Screen" will be touting features such as an AI-empowered processor and even a popup camera.
