Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone release date, design officially confirmed

Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone release date, design officially confirmed

It's probably not a stretch to say that Samsung has, at least for now, cornered the nascent foldable market. Royole' FlexPai is generally unavailable in most markets and Motorola has gone silent almost completely on the Razr. Samsung's closest rival would have been Huawei, had it not been too busy with more critical concerns. That said, it seems that the embattled Chinese company still has a bit more to give and it will be announcing its next-gen foldable phone in just a few weeks.

Huawei Harmony OS 2.0 revealed to be an Android fork with many hurdles

Huawei Harmony OS 2.0 revealed to be an Android fork with many hurdles

To say that Huawei is desperately trying to survive in the middle of a US sanction is probably not an understatement. From its networking business to its smartphones, the Chinese company's future precariously hangs in the balance of a new US political landscape. They say desperate times call for desperate measures and it sounds like Huawei's Harmony OS is one such bold move but it is turning out to be one deceptive affair instead.

Huawei HarmonyOS deep-dive exposes Android smoke & mirrors

Huawei's much-vaunted HarmonyOS, the Android-replacing operating system it plans to use as a workaround to its placement on the US trade block list, isn't quite the masterpiece of in-house development the company claims, a new beta deep-dive has revealed. The Chinese electronics giant has faced an uphill struggle in phones, smart home tech, and other devices over the past year or so, after being placed on the US entity list preventing it from doing business with American companies.

IDC shows smartphone bump in Q4 2020 with Apple, Samsung on top

IDC has issued its report on the smartphone market's performance in the final quarter of 2020, and it probably won't surprise many to learn that the market was able to finish the year strong. According to the analytics organization, smartphone sales rebounded a bit in the final quarter of the year, showing 4.3% year-over-year growth and ending what was otherwise a down year - smartphone sales were down 5.9% in 2020 as a whole over 2019 - on a high note.

Huawei weighs selling off its smartphone flagships report claims

Huawei weighs selling off its smartphone flagships report claims

Huawei is reportedly considering selling its best-known smartphone brands, as the Chinese tech giant takes further steps to work around the US supply chain embargo. The future of the Huawei Mate and P Series was thrown into question when the Trump Administration added Huawei to the so-called entity list, effectively blocking it from making deals with key American companies for software and hardware.

Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone leak points to an innie design

There are dire predictions for the future of Huawei's mobile business this year. From restricted access to needed resources and components to the sale of its Honor brand, analysts predict that Huawei's smartphone production will nosedive this year. That makes it sound like an inopportune time for an expensive experiment but Huawei might have no qualms about launching the foldable Mate X2 next month that backtracks on the design the company insisted was the better one.

Honor V40 could be the first to have Google Play Store again

Honor V40 could be the first to have Google Play Store again

For the past year or so, Huawei has gained something like a reverse Midas touch, where every company and subsidiary under its name gets dragged into its US export ban. That included Honor, which has always been promoting itself as an independent but related brand from Huawei and has, to its credit, helped Huawei achieve the sales numbers it has been flaunting. That independence finally became complete two months ago when Huawei sold off its Honor business and that first fruit of that separation might be coming this week.

US denies, revokes license to sell to Huawei at the last minute

US denies, revokes license to sell to Huawei at the last minute

The US is about to undergo a rather historic political transition in a few days but it seems that the outgoing Trump administration is hastily doing all that it can before that day comes. While there is no clear assurance that president-elect Biden will reverse the US government's stance in relation to Huawei's sanctions, what is clear right now is that not only the company but its dozens of suppliers as well are being left in limbo after the Commerce Department denied en masse 150 license requests that have been pending for months.

Huawei P50 Pro might offer Android, Harmony OS variants

In just under two days, Samsung will be announcing 2021's first premium smartphones, the Galaxy S21. It's super early schedule is supposedly meant to give both Apple and Huawei shorter opportunities in the market. Of course, Huawei already has its own problems to worry about but it's still trying to prove that it's business as usual. In fact, the Huawei P50 Pro might still arrive on time, but it will be a rather complicated affair as far as its software goes.

Huawei smartphone production predicted to nosedive this year

The new year has mostly inspired new hope for people who want to leave the troubled 2020 behind. Unfortunately for Huawei, this year could actually be worse for it as it starts to feel the full effects of the US sanctions. Despite its best efforts and marketing, what could have been the world's largest smartphone vendor could end up from number 2 to number 7 even as the global smartphone market grows by just a bit.

Huawei P50 leaks look incredibly strange

Huawei P50 leaks look incredibly strange

Today we're taking a peek at some leaked images of the device called Huawei P50. This device is a smartphone with a rather sizable backside camera array, arranged in a way that might throw you for a loop. There, in the space of a circle-cornered rectangle, you'll find five lenses - four in a row, as well as a smaller lens to the right, above which is an LED flash and a dual-LED flash. Below that is another set of sensors - as if there weren't already enough.

Huawei P50 Pro leak points to big changes, familiar waterfall screen

While Samsung is seemingly toying again with flat screens for its flagships, Huawei is apparently doing the opposite and sticking to its curved guns. No date has been leaked yet but it won't be surprising if the Huawei P50 Pro will be following closely on the heels of the Galaxy S21's launch this month. When it does, it may still bear some striking resemblance to the P40 Pro but it could be changing the formula significantly inside.
