Huawei Mate 10 Lite leaked with 18:9 screen, four cameras

Huawei Mate 10 Lite leaked with 18:9 screen, four cameras

Normally, Huawei’s flagship launches don’t get as much coverage as, say, Samsung or Apple, even after it kicked up its marketing in the US starting with the Huawei P9. But thanks to a rather bold boast, all eyes will be on the Chinese OEM when it launches the Huawei Mate 10 in less than a month. But that phone won’t be alone in October. It will reportedly be joined by a Mate 10 Pro and a Mate 10 Lite. While we know little about the “Pro” model, this recent leak about the Huawei Mate 10 Lite seems to hint that this poorly named smartphone might even steal the Mate 10’s spotlight.

Huawei promotes Mate 10 “real AI phone” by mocking Face ID

Huawei promotes Mate 10 “real AI phone” by mocking Face ID

Face ID is perhaps the most contentious iPhone X feature next to the notch and amojis. The public demo’s seeming failure, which Apple has tried to explain away, seems to only add to the skepticism of Apple’s Touch ID replacement. Smelling blood, Huawei lost no time in trying to take a swipe at Apple. But it’s only able to do so because it believes it has the “real AI phone”, and it’s inviting the world to see it next month when it unveils the Huawei Mate 10.

Google reportedly stopping all Nexus 6P RMAs

Google reportedly stopping all Nexus 6P RMAs

If you ask around Android circles, you’ll probably be surprised (or not) to find out that the Nexus 5 is largely regarded as the best, and probably last greatest, Nexus phone. While definitely not perfect, everything that followed were significantly less perfect. And the last Nexus phone made, the Nexus 6P, is to date, an unmitigated disaster. Tired perhaps of the never ending requests to return defective units, Google is now reported to have changed its mind and will no longer replace what is probably the last of the Nexus line.

Huawei Mate 10 leaked photos show no front home button

Huawei Mate 10 leaked photos show no front home button

Huawei has already revealed when they plan to announce their next flagship, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. They also teased how the company’s new Kirin 970 processor, with a fancy built-in “neural processing unit” and dual ISPs, is going to run circles around the Samsung S8. Of course, it hasn’t yet revealed what the Mate 10 will look like but, thanks to the power of the Internet, we might already know what it will look like anyway. And, at least based on these two photos from two different sources, it’s not going to be so different from the Mate 9 before it after all.

Huawei beat Apple in smartphone sales, for now

Huawei beat Apple in smartphone sales, for now

Has Apple finally lost its touch? That depends on how you see it and, more importantly, when. According to Counterpoint Research, Apple is no longer the number 2 smartphone vendor in the world, but it’s still in the top 3. Actually, it is exactly number 3, with Huawei taking up that precious second spot. At least for now. Android fans, don’t worry, Samsung is still number one. Again, at least for now.

Huawei Mate 10 renders show only one significant change

Huawei Mate 10 renders show only one significant change

Although the trend on high-end smartphones seems to be going bezel-less, there are still a few holdouts. Sony, for example, just loves bezels, not to mention thick bodies. And while not as much, Huawei doesn’t seem to be too eager to jump on that bandwagon just yet. In renders made by'OnLeaks for CompareRaja , the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 looks almost identical to the Mate 9 last year save for one single thing: a front home button.

Nexus 6P, Honor 6X, Honor 8 Pro getting Android Oreo soon

Gone are the days when Chinese OEMs lived in their own islands, content to leave their users with the Android versions their phones launched with. As their participation in the global market grows, so does the awareness of their duties as good Android citizens. Xiaomi has just announced its first ever “pure Andriod” phone, the Mi A1, and now Huawei and sub-brand Honor are girding up their loins to bring the latest Android 8.0 Oreo to the Honor 6x, the Honor 8 Pro, and the Huawei-made Nexus 6P.

Huawei won’t make any more ‘very low-end’ smartphones

Huawei won’t make any more ‘very low-end’ smartphones

For some consumers, Chinese company Huawei is synonymous with 'cheap phones' -- you can still find some of its handsets in convenience stores, big-box stores and online auction websites for very low prices, but those days are numbered. The company has big ambitions -- namely to unthrone Apple and Samsung in terms of market share -- and part of that ambition will require dropping its lowest-tier handsets entirely.
