Huawei chairman sweet-talks Google and warns Trump

Huawei chairman sweet-talks Google and warns Trump

Huawei may be blocked from using the full version of Android with all Google's services, but that isn't stopping the Chinese tech behemoth from hoping key Google apps phone-buyers expect will get added to its own download store. Speaking this week, Huawei execs talked about potential workarounds to the issues that are increasingly marginalizing its Android devices outside of China, while also warning that things could get nasty should Trump opt to escalate the blockade.

Huawei P40 Pro includes US-made components based on a teardown

Huawei P40 Pro includes US-made components based on a teardown

Ever since the US government put Huawei on its entity list, the Chinese tech giant has been singing two tunes. On the one hand, it complains about the unfair treatment and baseless accusations, bemoaning how the US is trying to force it into submission. On the other hand, it also warns how it can be independent, which would eventually spell trouble for US companies that will lose such a big customer. It turns out, however, that Huawei can't fully yet be free of American products, making the Huawei P40 Pro stand in defiance to the US ban.

Huawei P40 Pro DxOMark score is no surprise but pointless for many

Huawei P40 Pro DxOMark score is no surprise but pointless for many

Every year, Huawei takes the top spot on DxOMark's list for the best smartphone when it comes to camera performance. Unlike before, it doesn't get to hold that spot very long when other new phones arrive, especially now that OPPO and Xiaomi have risen to the top. That back and forth between Huawei and other phone makers have happened again with the Huawei P40 Pro. This time, however, it might be falling on deaf ears outside of China.

Huawei Sound X wireless speaker debuts alongside Watch GT 2e

Huawei Sound X wireless speaker debuts alongside Watch GT 2e

If you thought the Apple HomePod was late to the smart speaker party, you probably forgot that one other major smartphone maker still doesn't have one. Huawei did announce a new wireless speaker today but calling it smart might be a very big stretch considering, somewhat ironically, it doesn't seem to integrate Huawei's new smart assistant. Fortunately, that's not the only smart accessory it announced today, adding a new Watch GT 2e to its popular line of smartwatches.

Huawei Mate 40 camera ring could be a multi-functional touch screen

Huawei Mate 40 camera ring could be a multi-functional touch screen

Huawei may have been the first to use a square camera bump that is not being adopted by others but it may be ironically abandoning as well. The Huawei P40, which is expected to debut this week, will follow the trend of elongated rectangular boxes down the side of the phone. The Huawei Mate 40, however, might keep the circle its predecessor bore last year. And if a newly-granted patent is any indication, it might have something that no other phone has dared to offer.

Huawei P40 Pro revealed in massive leak

Today the Huawei P40 Pro was leaked in a major way - just before its official reveal and release date. The Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro were meant to be revealed at the same time - likely within the week - but leaksters in Germany got there first.

Huawei P40 leaks include a new P40 Pro Plus 5G

Despite the ongoing pandemic, many businesses around the world still try to continue operating as normal. In the tech industry, that means still launching products on schedule whether or not people will be able to buy them immediately anyway. Given its pre-existing predicament, availability of Huawei's phones outside of China has always been a problem anyway but that clearly won't stop it from launching not two but three phones next week, including an oddly named new model.

Huawei AppSearch helps users look for apps without Google Play Store

Huawei AppSearch helps users look for apps without Google Play Store

It's hard being a Huawei or even Honor fan outside of China these days. While the companies' phones are great, their latest models are devoid of any trace of Google. This has forced owners to search for apps from other and multiple sources, some of them less trustworthy than others. In order to get such users accustomed to relying on Huawei for their Android app fix, the company is making available a separate AppSearch app that is pretty much Google Search for Android apps outside of the Google Play Store.

Huawei Watch GT 2e leaks point to another 14-day sporty smartwatch

Huawei Watch GT 2e leaks point to another 14-day sporty smartwatch

The Apple Watch continues to dominate the rather small smart wearable market but that hasn't stopped dozens of companies from putting out their own. Of those, however, few have wandered away from Google's Wear OS platform. Aside from Samsung, Huawei is the only other major consumer electronics manufacturer that has struck out on its own with some amount of success. Most of that has been due to the Huawei Watch GT's battery life, a trait that an upcoming Huawei Watch GT 2e will apparently continue based on new leaks.

Honor Magic UI 3.0 will bring Android 10 to flagship phones next week

The whole drama surrounding Huawei and the US government has left many wondering about the company's ability to continue its mobile business. This uncertainty naturally extends to Honor who shares the same fate as its parent company. To prove that not only is it "business as usual" but that it also has the capacity to support the smartphones it just launched, Honor is announcing the upcoming rollout of its shiny new Magic UI 3.0 which, in turn, pulls in Android 10 for five supported devices.

Huawei P40 leaked hands-on teases the phone you probably won’t get

Huawei P40 leaked hands-on teases the phone you probably won’t get

Huawei isn't one to easily yield to challenges and threats and it is still marching on despite the odds stacked against it. According to the company, so take it with a grain of salt, its smartphone sales have barely taken a hit despite having no access to those juicy Google apps. In fact, it now has its own alternatives in place, suggesting a rather different user experience for the upcoming Huawei P40. The phone itself, however, may not be so different unless you pay close attention to subtle changes.
