Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone has some durability surprises

Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone has some durability surprises

Although it has the lion's share of the attention, Samsung is hardly the only one making foldable phones. There's, for example, Royole's FlexPai and, despite troubles with supplies, Huawei's Mate X. The latter just had its true second-gen model, one that goes in the opposite direction from the first Huawei Mate X's "outie" fold. The design, however, isn't the only thing that has changed with the Mate X2 and, fortunately, the changes that come with the redesign also made it a lot more durable in the process.

Huawei P50 design leaked hands-on photos still looks unsettling

Huawei P50 design leaked hands-on photos still looks unsettling

We've seen our fair share of new and odd camera bump designs but it seems that the Huawei P50 will take the cake this year. Its phone cameras have always been known for their performance, at least until the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra dethroned it on DxOMark this year, so it doesn't really need to do some fancy design gimmick to sell it. It might be, however, aiming for a shock factor to get its upcoming flagship to get noticed, even if its means being ridiculed for it, like what is already happening with real-world photos of the Huawei P50 that just got leaked.

Huawei eyes software business like Google amid US sanctions

Huawei eyes software business like Google amid US sanctions

Huawei's fall from the world's top 5 smartphone vendors naturally didn't go unnoticed. Shoved out of networking infrastructure, especially 5G, in many countries, the company also found itself struggling in the smartphone market because of its inability to buy parts and components necessary to make those devices. Huawei isn't giving up, though, but does have another Plan B in place and, quite amusingly, it will reportedly be following Google's model in expanding its business to software, the cloud, and cars.

Huawei is no longer in the top 5 of the smartphone market

Huawei is no longer in the top 5 of the smartphone market

It was really inevitable, no matter how much the company tried to spin the narrative. Given global conditions and a legal predicament in the US that predated this pandemic, it was only a matter of time before Huawei's mobile business took a big hit. That time has seemingly come this year, at least as far as the first quarter of 2021 is concerned. While the entire smartphone market grew, Huawei found itself pushed out of the top 5 by its own fellow Chinese rivals.

Best Android tablets to consider before committing to iPad Pro 2021

Best Android tablets to consider before committing to iPad Pro 2021

Tablets have been trying to overpower laptops since their very inception and Apple iPads have been at the helm of this desirous change. Leading from the front, iPad Pro has been the go-to device for most of us seeking work and play balance with portability. Now as foldable phones venture into the realm of tablets – with their extending form factor – this niche is somewhat diluting. Yet, if you’re into a large slate silhouette, which offers the comfort of a laptop and finesse in creative flow (with the stylus) there are some intriguing Android-based options on the market.

Huawei P50 might not come with a charger for a different reason

Huawei P50 might not come with a charger for a different reason

Always a trendsetter, Apple's removal of phone chargers from its iPhone boxes is already being copied by its rivals. Amusingly, those are the same companies, or at least one of them, that ridiculed the unpopular move. Samsung and Xiaomi, however, won't be the only ones following in Cupertino's footsteps and Huawei might be the next big name to remove the charger starting with the upcoming Huawei P50. That said, it wouldn't be for financial or environmental reasons like the others.

Best fitness bands to buy right now: If watch is not your thing

Best fitness bands to buy right now: If watch is not your thing

We’ve been through a stressful last year wherein staying in shape – being active – took a serious back seat for many of us. Things don’t look very promising even today, but little strides back to normalcy have begun. It’s then time to consider health and fitness a little more seriously. When you get into some sort of routine – or if you’re already at some level in your fitness journey - you’d require a wearable to track the fitness and health parameters.

Huawei Band 6 almost looks like a smartwatch

Huawei Band 6 almost looks like a smartwatch

Even with the advent of smartwatches, smart fitness bands, which have been around before those smart timepieces, have continued to thrive. Beyond software differences, smart bands have always been distinguished by smaller or at least narrow displays compared to the circular or square screens of smartwatches. There have been a few outliers, of course, and Huawei's latest fitness tracker is one of them. The Huawei Band 6 has a tall but large display that, unless you're looking closely, could easily be mistaken for a smartwatch.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is DxOMark’s new king

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is DxOMark’s new king

Xiaomi had a rather big day to day, announcing a handful of new devices, not all of them smartphones. The Mi 11 Ultra, of course, is the highlight of its night and it's not really that surprising given all the specs and features it carries inside its unsurprisingly expensive package. As expected, the camera system, which is housed in what may be the largest bump we've laid eyes on a phone, is one of the core pillars of the Mi 11 Ultra and it may have paid off if DxOMark's early evaluation is anything to go by.

Huawei P50 Pro+ leak reveals how cameras will look

Huawei P50 Pro+ leak reveals how cameras will look

Calling the Huawei P50 Pro's camera design "unique" is probably the kindest way to call the unconventional "circles in an egg" appearance that has been hinted at by unofficial renders. Those renders, however, don't exactly show how many cameras will be used for Huawei's next P series phones, much less how they will be arranged inside. Those details are now coming from a different and admittedly less reliable source, showing what could turn out to be a divisive camera arrangement that makes no practical sense.

Huawei to charge Apple, Samsung for 5G patent royalties

Huawei to charge Apple, Samsung for 5G patent royalties

Although it has so far managed to keep operating, it's hard to deny that Huawei's business has taken a significant hit in the past years. In addition to sanctions imposed by the US government over allegations of its role in Chinese espionage, Huawei has also seen its networking technologies and equipment pushed out of other countries' 5G plans. To recoup losses and perhaps to indirectly show how critical it is to 5G's development, Huawei will soon make smartphone makers like Apple and Samsung pay for patent royalties, the majority of which revolve around 5G technologies.

Huawei P50 renders won’t save you from the new design

Huawei P50 renders won’t save you from the new design

Huawei might be aiming for a shock factor in order to get its first flagships noticed this year. Although it has always been highly praised for its mobile photography output, its prominence might soon be threatened by brands that might become more available, not to mention more affordable, as its own numbers dwindle due to the US ban. The Huawei P50 Pro leaked earlier with a rather surprising new camera design and it seems that the vanilla Huawei P50 will be following closely in its footsteps, too.
