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.
We had some issues with Huawei's Ascend P6 when wereviewed it last year-- despite a sleek thin design, a gorgeous display and a solid camera, it simply lacked oomph. Now the company has given the handset a slight revision, bumping its original 1.5GHz quad-core processor up to 1.6GHz.
One year ago, the first views of Huawei's Ascend Mate appeared in the wild . The phablet debuted a week later at CES 2013. Today images for the Ascend Mate 2 appeared, and the official unveil for the device could be set for CES 2014 next week. All but one of the rumored specs were confirmed with this leak.
LAS VEGAS—Huawei is coming to the US this year with one monster of a “phablet.” The company announced the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate2 4G, the next generation of its Android smart phone/tablet, at a press conference at CES. It's Huawei's next step as the company attempts to establish itself as a global consumer brand.
While there's been no reason to doubt whispers of a follow-up toHuawei's Ascend Mate, pictures of the super-sized device have so far been unflattering. Today, however, a Mate 2-toting source has sent some snaps to our friends atEngadget Chinese, including a few family photos with the original Mate.
It's been a year since Huawei's Richard Yu'steasedhis company's octa-core HiSilicon SoC, and according to the exec's recent Sina Weibo post (screenshot after the break), said product isfinallyready. In fact, Yu revealed that his company's launched two new 28nm HPM chips. The octa-core model (likely the K3V3) features the usual quad Cortex-A15 plus quad Cortex-A7 big.
It was only a few days ago that we got an early peek at what appears to be Huawei's Ascend Mate 2. Now, according to our friends over atMyDrivers,it would appear the Chinese company also has a new Glory handset in the works -- one which is said to be a planned competitor against the likes of Xiaomi's Red Rice. Per the report, Huawei intends the Glory 4 to be a budget smartphone that packs a good amount of punch, with features such as MediaTek's MT6592 chip (aka "the world's first true octa-core"), 2GB RAM, 16GB of built-in storage and a 13-megapixel rear camera.
This is one case where expectation and reality do not meet eye to eye. Huawei has, without fuss or fanfare, made the Ascend P6S available on its online store, and it is not the interesting smartphone that some have been hoping for.
The truth of the matter is that the Huawei Ascend P6S is pretty much the Ascend P6 with just some very few changes.
Huawei is apparently preparing a new variant of its recently launched Huawei Ascend P6 and it’s packing quite a punch, relatively speaking. The new Huawei P6S will be sporting an upgraded processor that almost doubles its predecessor’s benchmark performance.
This isn’t the first time we have seen images of the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 . And looking forward, it seems likely that more will follow. For now though, this latest series of Ascend Mate 2 images have surfaced out of China. Specifically, these images come courtesy of a pair of Chinese language Weibo pages.
Unlike the last leak, we aren’t seeing a full shot of the handset this time around.
Huawei announced at their CES 2014 press conference that the successor to its Ascend Mate phablet would be called the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G, which updates their flagship phablet offering to try and match the best on the market. The Mate 2 keeps the 6.1-inch form factor of its predecessor but adds a quad-core 1.
Oh how times have changed. When Huawei showed off its flagship smartphone at CES last year, it did so in a smallish conference room with some chairs in the middle and crudites and demo phones flanking the sides. This time, Huawei nabbed itself a ballroom and bisected it with a stage and a giant screen to highlight its latest and greatest giant smartphone, the Ascend Mate 2.
The Huawei Ascend P6 is a solid device, and should be even better when the company updates to Android 4.4 sometime in January. As hardware specs plateau, one frontier remains for handset makers: the processor. Qualcomm has the Android market firmly entrenched in their Snapdragon processors, but a new breed is coming.We’ve heard plenty of talk surrounding the MediaTek octa-core processor, and even some rumblings of Qualcomm readying their next generation processor.
While Google does all it can to avoid theAndroid patent headachebrought on by the "Rockstar" patent group, another of the consortium's targets has decided it wants out.FOSSPatentsreportsthat Huawei, one ofseven Android OEMs suedalongside the search giant, filed a joint motion with Rockstar and its subsidiary to dismiss claims that it infringed on numerous networking and UI patents.
Rumors have been suggesting Huawei has plans to announce the Ascend P7 during Mobile World Congress. The company has yet to confirm that, however given the recent increase in rumors, that could likely be when an announcement comes. Anyway, what is believed to be press renders of the Ascend P7 Sophia have recently surfaced.
