Huawei P10 stops by the FCC, gets a photo op

Huawei has already confirmed that its MWC 2017 presence will include the P10 as well as the Huawei Watch 2. Other than that, however, it hasn’t said much. Fortunately, others are doing the talking for the OEM, like the FCC who graciously made public a few snapshots of the smartphone, both its shell and its innards. While they don’t exactly say anything new, these photos at least confirm much of what we’ve seen and heard, especially regarding the Huawei P10’s design.

Huawei P10 Plus “real photos” and curved-screen debunking

A number of leaks this week made by odd users with penchants for fakery have shown a curved-edge variant of the Huawei P10. This device has already all-but-been-revealed by Huawei to the point where we can almost list its entire specifications sheet. So when a curved-edge version of the device surfaced, suddenly, without any indication of existence in previous leaks, we investigated.

Huawei P10 says hello in leaked renders

Huawei has already confirmed that its P10 will be making an appearance at MWC 2017, but beyond that, details have been fairly slim. Today, however, we're getting an idea of what the Huawei P10 could look like, thanks to a new set of leaked renders. In these images, we see an estimation of what the P10 will look like from all angles, and it seems like Huawei might be switching some things up as it transitions from the P9.

Huawei Honor 8, Sony Xperia Z5, Z3+, Z4 Tablet Android Nougat update released

Huawei Honor 8, Sony Xperia Z5, Z3+, Z4 Tablet Android Nougat update released

Just yesterday, Google updated its developer dashboard to indicate the spread of Android versions across the market. It inevitably revealed the rather snail-paced rollout of Android Nougat, be it 7.0 or 7.1.1, to devices. Seemingly making up for lost time, two manufacturers are kicking off the rollout of Android Nougat for devices, with a little twist. Sony is actually re-releasing its Nougat update to the Xperia Z5, Z3+ and Z4 Tablet, while the Honor 8 is getting the update via a shiny new EMUI 5.0.

Huawei Mate 9 Review [International Edition]

Huawei Mate 9 Review [International Edition]

The Huawei Mate 9 represents a real maturation of Huawei in a number of areas - most importantly in the company's dedication to a solid final product. What we've seen from Huawei in the past is a set of fairly good or really great components mixed with questionable execution. Here in the year 2017, Huawei has a smartphone that's ready to compete with the biggest brands in the United States, as well as the rest of the world.

Huawei Honor 8 Lite launched to take on premium sibling

Huawei Honor 8 Lite launched to take on premium sibling

It hasn't even been a year since Huawei sub-brand Honor launched the glass-toting Honor 8 in Europe and, later, in the US as well. Now, however, Honor is already giving it some competition. It has just launched the Honor 8 Lite in Finland and, as the name so clearly says, it's designed to be a mid-range alternative to the premium model. But given how little it deviates from the Honor 8, the Honor 8 Lite is pretty much a more affordable rival to Honor's own flagship.

Here’s when Huawei will push out Nougat to models in China

Here’s when Huawei will push out Nougat to models in China

When your smartphone, be it a fresh new release or a one-year old model, will get the latest and greatest Android release has always been a guessing game for the Android faithful. Some, like LG, seem to take pride in how fast at least one of its phones gets the update. Others, like Samsung, have developed a notoriety for taking ages, sometimes never. Huawei, who is arduously climbing up the Android ladder, isn’t yet the fastest, but, if this leaked timetable is to be believed, it is at least trying to finish before the second half of 2017.

Google Daydream adds ASUS, ZTE, Huawei phones, new headset

Google Daydream adds ASUS, ZTE, Huawei phones, new headset

Cardboard, Google’s first attempt at smartphone-powered virtual reality, was immediately available to almost every Android phone, and even some iPhones. In contrast, Daydream felt more like an exclusive club, with only the Pixel, and later on the Moto Z, as members. That club has just gotten a bit bigger, though not by much. Following announcements made at CES 2017, Google is formally welcoming four new smartphones into the Daydream fold. What’s even better is that it’s also announcing the first ever third-party Daydream headset to make it easier to, well, daydream.

This Honor Magic should’ve been Honor’s big CES 2017 launch

Honor brought its Millennial-bait 6X to CES 2017 complete with a startlingly low price tag, but it hid its magic - literally - in the corner of a demo booth. The Honor Magic was announced for China some months ago, but had until now avoided American shores, despite no shortage of interest. It's undoubtedly the company's most interesting device right now.
