Android 11 download release for my phone: The big list

When will my phone get the update to Android 11? This is an iteration of a question we get every time Google makes a major product release, especially when it comes to a new numbered version of their mobile OS.

Huawei MateBook X 2020’s beauty comes with some compromises

Huawei MateBook X 2020’s beauty comes with some compromises

Huawei is perhaps best known for its smartphones and its networking hardware but it does also have other products for consumers, including laptops. On their own, Huawei's MateBook X seemed poised to take on the bigger players, particularly Apple's MacBook line, with its mix of design, performance, and features that tie in with Huawei and Honor smartphones. Its 2020 iteration of the MateBook X may prove to be one of its best yet but might, unfortunately, be dead on arrival in markets where it will even be available.

Samsung and LG won’t supply Huawei with displays either

Samsung and LG won’t supply Huawei with displays either

It might have been too easy to belittle the US ban on supplying Huawei with semiconductors but the full brunt of that rule is now coming to light in full. While the primary and immediate casualties are, of course, the mobile processors that will power Huawei's chips, the rule's chilling effects actually covers anything and everything that is powered or controlled by a chip, including the screens that Samsung and LG will no longer supply Huawei exactly for that reason.

Huawei to also lose Samsung, SK Hynix memory chips due to US ban

Huawei to also lose Samsung, SK Hynix memory chips due to US ban

The walls are seemingly closing in on Huawei as the beleaguered Chinese company continues to lose suppliers and potential reprieves in light of the US' increasing export restrictions against it. Next week will see the implementation of new rules that would prevent Huawei from having access even to semiconductors and materials needed to manufacture its products and it seems that South Korean companies Samsung and SK Hynix are among those withdrawing their products from a lucrative customer.

US ban on chipmaker giant SMIC could put Huawei in dire straits

US ban on chipmaker giant SMIC could put Huawei in dire straits

The US government has hundreds of companies on its so-called Entity List and a good number of them come from China. One of the highest-profile names on that list in recent years has been, of course, Huawei. But if you thought the US was done with China's biggest phone and network manufacturer, it seems to be moving to squeeze out any remaining life from Huawei. Its rumored next move, however, could provoke China to finally retaliate and throw the global economy further into chaos.

The FCC did the math on ousting Huawei and ZTE from US carriers. Spoiler – it’s a LOT

The FCC has done the math on just how much it might cost to remove Huawei and ZTE equipment and services from US carriers, and it's bad news if you thought it might be as simple and cheap as unplugging a few routers and switches. Last year, the FCC warned carriers getting government funding that they would no longer be able to order network tech from the two Chinese companies.

Huawei Watch GT2 Pro might finally feature wireless charging

Huawei Watch GT2 Pro might finally feature wireless charging

Huawei's relatively young line of "GT" smartwatches are highly rated for one feature and one feature alone, their advertised 14-day battery life. Although it might not reach those numbers in real-world use, it's still significantly more than the 24 hours that most smartwatches offer. Sooner or later, however, you'll have to recharge the wearable and with Huawei's upcoming revision of the Watch GT2, you might not have to struggle with cables anymore.

Huawei said to be frantically stockpiling phone parts before US ban

Huawei said to be frantically stockpiling phone parts before US ban

Huawei might be changing its story from defiance to one of defeat by this time next year if things don't start looking up for it. Whereas last year it stood proud and proclaimed it could still conquer the smartphone market despite US export bans, it is now silently and chaotically trying to get supplies it needs before time runs out in mid-September. But even then, Huawei could see its smartphone empire burn by 2021 unless things take a turn for the better.

Smartphone sales took a large hit last quarter says Gartner

The second quarter of 2020 may have been a good one for the PC and tablet market but one of the world's biggest consumer electronics market nosedived during that same period. Although the smartphone market has occasionally been described as declining or at least plateaued, it might have just experienced its worst quarter yet in a very long time. Gartner says that global smartphone sales dropped by 20% in the Q2 2020 and, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic is to blame.
