Galaxy S9 leaves LG and Huawei reportedly shelving MWC plans

Bad news if you were hoping for some smartphone news from LG and Huawei at Mobile World Congress this year, with whispers that Samsung's big Galaxy S9 reveal is making them cautious. The expectation - set up, it's worth remembering, from previous examples of high-profile smartphone debuts at the cellular-centric Barcelona show - had been that both companies would debut new flagships within the next few weeks. Now, though, that looks unlikely.

Congress may not like Huawei, but Google sure does

Congress may not like Huawei, but Google sure does

Today Google made known, again, their support for Huawei in the worldwide Android smart devices ecosystem. To the point, Google Head of RCS Amir Sarhangi published an article in the main Google blog portal today all about Huawei's new big effort with Android Messaging. This was just as much of a win for Google as it was for Huawei, and Sarhangi made clear that Huawei's efforts were not forgotten. All this despite Huawei's recent falling out with the US government.

Huawei patent reveals touch-sensitive smartwatch bezels

Huawei patent reveals touch-sensitive smartwatch bezels

Smartwatch interfaces could soon become much robust with a wider range of input gestures. A recently granted patent to Huawei reveals the company is working on smartwatch bezels that are touch-sensitive, much like the actual display, allowing them to detect different taps and swipes in multiple spots. This could open the door for additional controls beyond just taps on the screen, but without the need for more physical buttons on a wearable.

US bill proposal seeks fed ban on working with firms using ZTE and Huawei tech

US bill proposal seeks fed ban on working with firms using ZTE and Huawei tech

Huawei and ZTE, both Chinese companies, are once again receiving negative attention from the US government, which a new bill proposal wants to ban from working with firms that use equipment from either company. Though both ZTE and Huawei are popularly known for their mobile phone equipment, both offer hardware outside of that category, such as Huawei with its enterprise routers. The bill is called the "Defending US Government Communications Act."

Huawei beats Samsung in lawsuit over wireless patent

Huawei beats Samsung in lawsuit over wireless patent

Back in 2016, Huawei sued Samsung for allegedly violating several of its patents. Lawsuits were filed in both California and China, the latter of which has proven fruitful for the company. A judge in Shenzhen ruled yesterday that Samsung has infringed upon one of Huawei's wireless communications patents. As a result, Samsung has been ordered to stop selling products that utilize the technology (in China, that is).

Huawei P11 not P20 might be next flagship name

Huawei P11 not P20 might be next flagship name

Naming smartphones is sometimes as much arcane art as it is simple math. There was no Galaxy Note 6 and Nokia’s math start at 2, not 1. Apple could skip 9 and Huawei, shockingly, will not jump from to 20 this year. At least according to the latest website sleuths. The Chinese OEM will reportedly go from 2017’s Huawei P10 to 2018’s P11. Curiously, that same page that the sources are citing also mentions a P12, which is a year too early to appear.

Huawei’s AT&T deal reportedly just imploded

This morning AT&T reportedly "walked away" from a deal with Huawei, a deal that might well have made Huawei a major smartphone force in the USA. Huawei is one of the biggest smartphone brands in China and indeed the world, coming in just behind names like Samsung and Apple. Huawei was apparently supposed to announce their deal at CES 2018 as early as tomorrow (Tuesday, the 9th of January, 2018.)

Huawei Honor View10 launches globally, limited Honor 7X Red for Valentines

Huawei Honor View10 launches globally, limited Honor 7X Red for Valentines

Huawei, despite being the world’s third or so largest phone maker, still doesn’t have quite a huge foothold in some of the primary markets, like the US. Even less its sub-brand Honor. That, however, is seen as a challenge to just do better, which, to some extent, means flooding the market with model after model of smartphone. At CES, Honor revealed its plans to do exactly that, by releasing one of its latest flagship that has previously been available only in China. Yes, the premium Honor View10 is finally going global.

There’s a smartphone chip war brewing for 2018

The landscape for smartphone chip-makers like Apple, Qualcomm, and Samsung may be growing, but none can rest on its laurels as the industry tries to keep up with new trends like AI. SoC (System-on-Chip) design being increasingly brought in-house by players like Apple and Samsung are eating into the business of former go-to providers like Qualcomm, fueled in no small part by fierce and lengthy litigation over processor technology patents.
