It's no secret that Huawei is intent on joining the big boys in the smartphone arena, and the Ascend D Quad is undoubtedly its most promising attempt yet. The manufacturer is determined to make some serious headway into the world of handset relevance dominance, and the Ascend D Quad -- alongside its larger-battery XL brother -- are ready to play ball in the specs game. With a homegrown 1.
Earlier this year we had a bit of rage going on when it was announced that the brand new Huawei Ascend Mate2 would not be getting an upgrade to the newest version of Android. At that time, it was suggested that only the USA-based version of the Mate2 would be getting no update to Android KitKat. Today Huawei has announced that they'll instead be SKIPPING KitKat and going straight to Android 5.
Smartphone users who invested in Huawei 's first big product in the US can now breath a sigh of relief. After receiving no small amount of flak from their users, the Chinese OEM has "reassessed" their update strategy and have now announced that the gigantic Ascend Mate2 will indeed be updated to Android 5.0 after all.
Huawei just introduced a new Android tablet. The Honor T1 is yet another affordable slate from the Chinese manufacturer. This is another addition to Huawei's Honor series which the company has been trying to market all over the world. The new Android tablet is affordable at only $160 (€130).
Huawei's career trajectory from Chinese white-label OEM to brand mainstream users "know" really hit a milestone with theAscend P6. After all, this was the device that was designed to blend the best of iOS and Android into a mainstream device that looked good.
It's been quite a while since we've seen Huawei put out an Android tablet but the day has finally arrived for a new one. Moving away, temporarily or permanently we don't know, from its existing MediaPad tablet brand, Huawei is bestowing its new tablet with the more familiar Honor mark.
After just unveiling the Ascend Mate7 last September, it seems that Huawei is gearing up for yet another smartphone launch, at least based on this TENAA sighting and a teaser for the company's own Weibo account. This time, however, it won't be much of a big jump as it is a spinoff from the Chinese OEM's existing Honor 6 smartphone. But this Huawei Honor 6 Plus isn't a simple upgrade.
Huawei looks to be at it again, and just might be working on a follow-up for the AScend P7. The Ascend P8 (a name you might have guessed they’d go with) is now grist for the rumor mill. A new report out of China is giving up some details on this one, but not the full boat just yet.
A new Huawei Ascend phone is said to be in the works right now and is currently being tested internally according to MyDrivers, a Chinese website. Rumor has it that this smartphone will be a follow up to the Huawei Ascend P7 which was released earlier this year. The Huawei Ascend P8 is expected to be unveiled at the CES 2015 this coming January so this should be interesting.
We've been waiting for Huawei to finally reveal the Honor 6 Plus and now that the smartphone is out, a lot of good reviews are coming out especially in terms of the camera. As we mentioned yesterday, the smartphone highlights a dual 8 megapixel rear camera setup. Such camera, or rather a duo of 8MP cameras, means there's great aperture for photos. It's something like what the HTC One M8 has.
In our excitement over Android 5.0 , we might have been guilty of forgetting that there are those who still live in a Jelly Bean world. As if to douse cold water over enthusiasm, Huawei 's US outfit has just announced that its previous flagship, the Ascend Mate2 , will not even be getting Android 4.4 KitKat .
Just because it's holiday season doesn't mean that the mobile world is at a complete standstill. Though many indeed have set their eyes on CES 2015, which is just a few weeks away, some still managed to sneak in a few surprises before the year is over. And, of course, the rumor mill is starting to heat up with stuff to expect early next year.
Some photos have leaked onto the web that show the machined case of a smartphone that is unreleased. The case is large enough to be a phablet and according to rumors, it belongs to the Huawei Ascend P8. We don't know much about the case and as with all rumors; you need some salt on the side. What we can tell is that it is a one-piece chunk of milled aluminum.
We still have a long way to go before we experience the next step after 4G LTE, but telecom companies are already hard at work developing faster, more efficient networks. Chinese smartphone maker Huawei recently said it's working with three major carriers in South Korea to establish 5G networks.
Gionee is not a popular brand but it’s been trying to come up with interesting handsets that could rival the more in-demand models. This Chinese phone manufacturer has recently introduced the Marathon M3 smartphone that boasts of a 5,000 mAh battery.
Chinese smartphone maker Huawei just took the wraps off its latest Android phone, and it looks awfully familiar ( via Engadget ). The new Honor 6 Plus, a follow-up to the company's Honor 6 phone, comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p screen — just like Apple's similarly-named iPhone 6 Plus. There's noticeable resemblance in terms of design, too. Take a look at the Huawei Honor 6 Plus below.
This week Huawei appears pumped up to announce that one of their newest devices on the market, the Huawei Ascend Mate2 , will not be getting any more Android updates. This is the device we reviewed in June of this year - it was released that same month - but now there'll be no more updates to its software.
As Mobile World Congress 2015 is now in full swing, Huawei has wasted no time in announcing its latest product, the Android-powered Huawei Watch . As the company's first smartwatch, the Huawei Watch sports a stunning design, clearly resembling a classic timepiece over a tech wearable.
