Chinese OEMs like Vivo were some of the first to start the mad race towards ultra thin smartphones. And now it seems that Chinese brands will also be blazing the trail towards smartphones with barely any bezels. Following Xiaomi’s admittedly impressive nearly bezel-free Mi Mix, Huawei sub-brand honor might be on the verge of putting out its own spin.

The smartphone market, especially in the US, is at a turning point in history. Olympus has fallen and the towering Titans are stumbling.

Not surprising but still disappointing, the Mate 9 paled in a few places compared to the luxury version, leaving interested buyers in a sort of no man’s land in terms of specs and price. Well, not if you live in China, where Huawei has just unveiled the Huawei Mate 9 Pro, which has the same specs as the Porsche Design, but without the design, branding, and price that comes with the latter.
