Galaxy Note 9: If this meeting went well, result may be hero team-up feature

Galaxy Note 9: If this meeting went well, result may be hero team-up feature

The most game-changing feature of the Galaxy Note 9 might not be anything we've seen before. Not a top-notch camera, nor an in-display or under-display fingerprint reader. Nay - the biggest feature in the Galaxy Note 9 might be a doorway to collaboration between Samsung, Xiaomi, and Huawei. This possibility comes after word that Samsung's Li Jie met with executives from the other two major smartphone brands in China.

Huawei, ZTE banned from military base retail stores over security risks [UPDATE]

Chinese phone makers ZTE and Huawei remain under scrutiny by the US government, which has banned them from retail stores on military bases. The order comes from the Pentagon and applies to US military bases around the world, a decision made over alleged security issues the devices may present. Both companies have previously, and repeatedly, dismissed the government's concerns.

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The best sort of excess

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The best sort of excess

What with all the attention the Huawei P20 Pro has captured lately, you'd think the company would be having a good year. Then again, high-profile criticism by the US government hasn't exactly done wonders for the Chinese phone-maker's sales, nor its scuppered carrier deals. If there's one thing the P20 Pro demonstrates, however, it's that while Huawei may lack trust from some quarters, it certainly isn't short on imagination.

Huawei doesn’t need to move away from Android to survive

Huawei doesn’t need to move away from Android to survive

Huawei may have seen the writing on the wall long before trouble started brewing. Either that or it already knew what it was in for, perhaps because of some actions that it knows will upset some powers. Either way, the Chinese OEM, which is now the world's third largest smartphone company and the second largest Android device maker, was recently reported to have been developing its own OS since 2012 as a fallback should its Android venture fail. It didn't but, thanks to recent political events, it might have to use that Plan B. However, Huawei shouldn't have to switch away from Android and, in fact, it might actually be suicide for it to push through with its own "Huawei OS".

Huawei P20 Pro durability test reveals an unfortunate flaw

Huawei P20 Pro durability test reveals an unfortunate flaw

Against all odds, Huawei has made a big grab for the smartphone market by appealing to photography lovers with its Huawei P20 Pro and its three cameras. Its mix of premium specs, high-end camera components, and AI-assisted features may make some in the US wish the smartphone was indeed available in the market. But while the Huawei P20 Pro may indeed rank as one of the top smartphones of 2018, one question remains unanswered: how long will it last under the wear and tear of everyday use? JerryRigEverything's Zack Nelson tries to find out.

Huawei developing its own OS as possible Android replacement

Huawei developing its own OS as possible Android replacement

Huawei has been having a hard time trying to make it in the US over the last several months, and it doesn't look like the situation will be improving anytime soon. While the company isn't quite as doomed as fellow Chinese phone manufacture ZTE, which has essentially been blacklisted in the US after trade violations, resulting in an export ban that cost it its Android license, Huawei is likely taking precautions should it find itself in the same crosshairs.

China mobile market proves Apple and Samsung don’t always win

China mobile market proves Apple and Samsung don’t always win

Apple and Samsung are not counted amongst the top 5 brands in the smartphone market in China in the first quarter of 2018. This might come as a shock to Samsung Galaxy smartphone and iPhone users in the United States, where Samsung and Apple all but dominate the world of mobile phones. In China, two major moves happened in the last several months. One of them was Apple's move from 4th place in overall sales in mobile phones to 5th - the other was a major shipment fall for the market as a whole.

Huawei now under criminal investigation over Iran trade

Huawei now under criminal investigation over Iran trade

This really shouldn't come as a surprise. After all, Huawei has been in the US government's cross hair perhaps longer than ZTE. After the latter was slapped with a crippling sanction for violating the US' export sanctions against Iran, it was really only a matter of time before Huawei gets the same treatment. Huawei is now reported to be under investigation by the US Department of Justice for the very same reasons and, considering Huawei's luck, it might get the same verdict as ZTE.

Huawei AI to get some emotional intelligence

Huawei AI to get some emotional intelligence

AI assistants may be called "personal" but they definitely aren't personable. Never mind their obviously fake personalities, these intelligent chatbots are really intelligent in only the factual sense. Huawei, however wants AI assistants to grow beyond that to become something more relatable, more approachable, more human-like. In other words, it wants to make its AI have some EI, emotional intelligence, as well to help identify human emotions and, if needed, console their users. Considering what Huawei is going through, it might be in need of some of that emotional support itself.

The Huawei P20 Pro’s camera just got a big endorsement

The answer to which smartphone has the best camera is a tricky one, but Huawei has scooped up another award for its P20 Pro. Announced last month, the triple-camera smartphone cranked up Huawei's imaging credentials with a Leica co-branded array of color and monochrome sensors that mingle their data for better results.
