Huawei P8 Lite gets unofficial, barely working Android Oreo port

Huawei P8 Lite gets unofficial, barely working Android Oreo port

Huawei might have become one of the world’s top 3 smartphone manufacturers, but there are some things that still haven’t improved over the years. Things like tightly, locked phones, the heavily customized EMUI skin, and the not so global rollout of updates. The latter means that only the latest and greatest, and even then not all, get to enjoy the latest Android releases. That’s the plight owners of the Huawei P8 Lite find themselves in with regards to Android 8.0 Oreo. Fortunately, hope springs eternal. Or rather, trickles, with the new OpenKirin GZOSP Android 8.0 port for the device.

Honor 7X cuts bezels in budget Android

Honor 7X cuts bezels in budget Android

Huawei's budget brand Honor wants in on the "bezel-less" action, and it's the Honor 7X that's going to do it. Follow-up to the Honor 6X, the new Android smartphone keeps the dual cameras and surprisingly premium design and materials - given the price - but then throws in a significantly larger display.

Honor V10 leaked specs hint at a last-minute 2017 flagship

Honor V10 leaked specs hint at a last-minute 2017 flagship

With the launch of the OnePlus 5T, you might presume that all the 2017 racehorses have been accounted for. Prepare to make a recount, because the Honor V10 has yet to be announced next week. Although relatively less known than its parent company Huawei, the Honor V10 could make you think twice. Because, for all intents and purposes, the Honor V10 will rank together with the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, give or take some differences, like the price tag.

Samsung, Oppo and Huawei are making foldable phones: report

Samsung, Oppo and Huawei are making foldable phones: report

Following the launch of the sleek and eye-catching ZTE Axon M, a smartphone with two full-size screens, industry sources have showed up to claim that Samsung, Oppo and Huawei have all kicked off dedicated steps to launch their own similar models, possibly ushering in an age of phones with two screens instead of one. Oppo recently patented a dual-screen phone design, and Samsung has been teasing such a device for years.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro might be coming to AT&T

Huawei Mate 10 Pro might be coming to AT&T

Huawei might not be a small company like OnePlus, but its rise in the smartphone market is nothing short of a miracle. While its global numbers are enough to rival Apple and Samsung, it has been able to accomplish that without a strong presence in the US. It has, of course, tried to sell its smartphones in the country via retailers like Amazon, but missing out on carrier partnerships is a recipe for failure. And so it is no small news that the Chinese OEM is now reported to be on the verge of launching its Huawei Mate 10 Pro flagship in the US, this time via AT&T.

Huawei Watch 2 Pro brings eSIM to Android Wear 2.0

Huawei Watch 2 Pro brings eSIM to Android Wear 2.0

Few traditional smartphone OEMs are now making smartwatches. And almost all of them have been ejected out of the now Google-centric online Google Store. That doesn’t seem to have fazed Huawei one bit. The Chinese giant has just launched its Huawei Watch 2 Pro, which practically looks like the Huawei Watch 2 Classic. But looks, as they say, can be deceiving and the Watch 2 Pro brings two important new things to the table: Android Wear 2.0 and, perhaps more importantly, eSIM support.

Huawei foldable phone could be ready next year, says CEO

Huawei foldable phone could be ready next year, says CEO

If 2017 was the year of nearly bezel-less phones and 18:9 screens, 2018 could be defined by foldable devices. That might very well be the trend next year if the forward-looking statements from two of the world’s biggest smartphone makers truly come to pass. Samsung has already made it known that it’s long awaited and speculated foldable phone could make a debut next year. Now Huawei CEO Richard Yu is chiming in, saying that it, too, has a working prototype and that its foldable smartphone might be ready in 2018 as well.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro DxOMark camera rating challenges Pixel 2

Huawei Mate 10 Pro DxOMark camera rating challenges Pixel 2

Back when the Google Pixel 2 was announced, Google touted the high marks its camera received from DxOMark. In fact, the Pixel 2 became the highest-rated smartphone camera in DxOMark's history. At the time, we assumed that it wouldn't be long before that score was challenged, and even though Huawei's Mate 10 Pro didn't manage to surpass the Pixel 2 in terms of overall rating, it's coming mighty close.

Huawei Mate 10 Lite silently launched in Germany

Huawei Mate 10 Lite silently launched in Germany

When Huawei made its big AI splash earlier this week with the Mate 10 models, there seemed to be one member missing. Already launched in China, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite was also expected to debut alongside its more powerful siblings. But perhaps the Chinese OEM preferred to keep things separate to prevent the already confusing mix of features. Better late than never, though, as it did finally put up the Mate 10 Lite for sale, without much fuss or fanfare, and perhaps rightly so.

Huawei Mate 10, Pro aim for iPhone X release war

Huawei Mate 10, Pro aim for iPhone X release war

Huawei announced its new Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro flagships at an event in Berlin this morning, and like so many other smart devices these days, the focus is firmly on AI. However, Huawei is looking to take things one step further by outfitting its Kirin 970 CPU - the brains of the operation in the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro - with a Neural Network Processing Unit for onboard artificial intelligence.

Huawei Mate 10 specs, renders leak ahead of next week’s reveal

Huawei Mate 10 specs, renders leak ahead of next week’s reveal

Almost all the premiere 2017 smartphone race horses are in. Well, almost. Aside from a OnePlus 5T that may or may not happen next month, we're also waiting for Huawei's last word for the year. As the manufacturer that really kicked the whole dual camera trend into full gear, Huawei will have to really step up its game this year. And it does seem that the Huawei Mate 10 will be pulling out all the stops. Except, perhaps, for its screen, which might not exactly be surprising.

Huawei Mate 10 rumored to have Samsung DeX-like feature

Huawei Mate 10 rumored to have Samsung DeX-like feature

Samsung may have just revived the "Phone as your PC" idea with its DeX platform and it seems to have inspired another OEM to follow suit. Whispers are going around that Huawei, who now ranks as one of the world's top three smartphone makers (depending on which market analyst you ask) is reportedly planning on a similar feature that will turn the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 into a PC desktop when connected to some peripherals. The difference, however, might be that, unlike Samsung DeX, Huawei's implementation might work with other docks and connectors as well.
