Huawei Mate 9 Oreo update begins with EMUI 8.0 rollout

When you heavily customize the Android experience, chances are you will have a harder time keeping up with Android updates. That’s the situation Samsung is in and it isn’t alone. Xiaomi and Huawei are part of that club, but the latter seems to have picked up some slack.

Of course, it comes with Huawei’s own custom EMUI 8.0 experience and, sadly, isn’t available everywhere yet.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro teardown reveals hidden repair traps

The trend towards more fashionable, glass back phones come at the price of repairability and sometimes even durability. While Huawei is boasting of how it is challenging the giants with its built-in nueral processing engine and its new desktop mode, it sadly isn’t daring to buck the trend when it comes to that new design fad. iFixit sinks its teeth into the Mate 10 Pro and discovers that Huawei’s most premium model has all the disadvantages of a glass and metal sandwich without the perks.

Honor V10 unveiled, claims better Face ID than Apple

Rumors and leaks of the Honor V10 have been floating around for a few weeks now, but it has finally been made real. As expected, the smartphone boasts of top of the line specs and an 18:9 screen that puts Honor in the running for this year’s premium smartphone race.

This device also has a pair of cameras at its back - not unlike a few of the most popular Huawei smartphone releases over the past 12 months.

Huawei P8 Lite gets unofficial, barely working Android Oreo port

Huawei might have become one of the world’s top 3 smartphone manufacturers, but there are some things that still haven’t improved over the years. Things like tightly, locked phones, the heavily customized EMUI skin, and the not so global rollout of updates. The latter means that only the latest and greatest, and even then not all, get to enjoy the latest Android releases. That’s the plight owners of the Huawei P8 Lite find themselves in with regards to Android 8.0 Oreo. Fortunately, hope springs eternal. Or rather, trickles, with the new OpenKirin GZOSP Android 8.0 port for the device.

Honor 7X cuts bezels in budget Android

Huawei's budget brand Honor wants in on the "bezel-less" action, and it's the Honor 7X that's going to do it.
