Huawei P40 rumors point to a massive change in battery and charging

Huawei P40 rumors point to a massive change in battery and charging

Unlike Huawei's previous flagships, the Huawei Mate 30 almost flew under the radar, thanks to its unavailability in many markets. You rarely hear about it unless it's in relation to the US blacklist and how it misses out on Google Play apps and services. On its own, however, the Huawei Mate 30 is a formidable and advanced Android phone and it seems that the Huawei P40 will continue that trend and will deliver features no smartphone has today: graphene batteries.

These days, one of the most important factors in smartphone purchases, especially among younger consumers, is the camera.

Although some may dispute the site's findings, it does provide a general overview of how far things have come in the mobile photography landscape.

Huawei confident it can still be No. 1 even without Google

Huawei confident it can still be No. 1 even without Google

The tech market seems to be divided on opinions about Huawei and its chances of survival in light of the US blacklist. Some think it is indeed guilty of spying or at least illegal business practices while others, including Microsoft, thinks it is being treated unfairly. Some believe that Huawei is standing strong in the face of adversity but others suspect Huawei is spinning numbers in its favor. Despite all that uncertainty, Huawei seems pretty confident it can still reach its goal of being the top smartphone vendor even without Google's help.

Honor View30, MagicWatch 2, MagicBook follow closely in Huawei’s footsteps

Honor View30, MagicWatch 2, MagicBook follow closely in Huawei’s footsteps

Huawei recently announced a Google-less MatePad Pro tablet and two new MateBook D laptops against a backdrop of uncertainty and doubt about its future. Not even 24 hours later, its subsidiary Honor is doing the same, launching admittedly impressive new products that may already be unfairly judged because of their association with the Chinese giant. In the past, Honor seemed to be trying to push an image of an independent yet related brand from Huawei, proving that it could actually carry its parent company on its back. This time, the ties that bind that two are clearer than ever, perhaps unintentionally showing Honor's solidarity with Huawei.

Huawei MatePad Pro, MateBook D try to prove everything is fine

Huawei MatePad Pro, MateBook D try to prove everything is fine

Huawei has once again narrowly dodged the bullet for another three months but that only means its ordeal will have no finality in its ordeal with the US government. Of course, it has to keep chugging along in spite of all the uncertainty and prove to the world it can still put out products that will make consumers wish the company wasn't in that much trouble. That is pretty much the setting of the Huawei's multi-product announcement that introduces the MatePad Pro tablet and MateBook D 15 laptop to the world.

Microsoft cleared to export mass-market software to Huawei temporarily

Microsoft cleared to export mass-market software to Huawei temporarily

It seems that Huawei may be able to breathe a bit easier even if it keeps on showing an unaffected and nonchalant public face. The company was recently granted another 90-day reprieve and the US Department of Commerce has started to grant or deny applications for temporary licenses to export American products to the embattled Chinese company. While the fate of its mobile business still isn't in the clear despite these developments, Huawei will at least now have access again to Microsoft software, at least until the temporary licenses are revoked again.

Huawei Mate X 5G screen repair costs half the phone’s price

Huawei Mate X 5G screen repair costs half the phone’s price

Smartphone screens are one of the most used and most important external components of our mobile devices so it's entirely surprising to see how much companies pour on their design, manufacturing, and repair. Which is to say that phone screen repairs have become more costly and more difficult year after year, and that's only for the "normal" solid screens. What about screens that can bend and fold? In the Huawei Mate X 5G's case, it's like buying a new non-foldable phone already.

Huawei 90-day license extension still leaves Mate 30 fate in limbo

Huawei 90-day license extension still leaves Mate 30 fate in limbo

The rumors were only partially correct. The US Commerce Department has indeed thrown Huawei a lifeline by granting it another Temporary General License extension but not the short 14-day period earlier believed. In fact, for the third time, Huawei is being given another 90 days to do business with US companies. Despite what looks like a generous reprieve, however, the fate of Huawei's mobile products, particularly the Mate 30 series, still remains uncertain because of the limits the extension imposes on Huawei's trade with US companies.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro repair is moderately easy as shown by iFixit teardown

Huawei Mate 30 Pro repair is moderately easy as shown by iFixit teardown

If you strip away the uncertainty around it, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is arguably one of this year's top Android smartphones. For those in China that never had official access to Google apps and services anyway, that may already be the case. Presuming it ever this prolonged nightmare soon, it could still make up for lost time thanks to its standout features. But being a top smartphone doesn't exactly make the Mate 30 Pro easy to repair. Fortunately, as self-repair experts iFixit found out, it's not that hard to repair either.

Huawei Mate X 5G foldable phone quickly sells out in China

Huawei Mate X 5G foldable phone quickly sells out in China

Huawei may have a few tense days ahead, with its fate once more hanging in the balance with rumors of a license extension coming Monday. It did, however, have a wonderful weekend at least in China where everything is business as usual despite the US blacklist. The company just launched its long-delayed Mate X 5G foldable phone with an even more astounding price tag than the Samsung Galaxy Fold but still sold out in less than a minute despite those factors.

Huawei US license extension might last 14 days only

Huawei US license extension might last 14 days only

It has been half a year since the US government practically declared it illegal for US companies to do business with Huawei but the Chinese giant's fate still remains uncertain. That would have been sealed by Monday but it seems that the US still wants to hold power over Huawei and is likely to give it yet another extension of its license to do business in the US. This time, however, it will only be for 14 days, probably to give time for the US and China to finally sign a "Phase 1" trade agreement.

Huawei P30 and P30 Pro Android 10 update rolls out in Europe

Huawei P30 and P30 Pro Android 10 update rolls out in Europe

Huawei's uncertain future in the Android market has some wondering if it will be able to continue supporting the devices it already has in the market. Huawei has already promised it will be updating not a few models to Android 10, though that hasn't happened at a fast pace, naturally. That, however, also raises questions of whether such an update would affect Google Play services already on international phones. Fortunately for owners of such phones in Europe, it seems to be all good news for them.
