Despite no official reveal of a handset, we know that Chinese heavyweight Huawei is building the new Nexus flagship smartphone for Google. We also know it is likely to be a juggernaut of leading specs and performance, and that was confirmed as the handset passed through the GeekBench benchmark software.
When we got a hands on with the Huawei Smartwatch earlier in the year we were properly impressed with the wearable, which at the very least is among the best looking smartwatches we have ever seen. At its IFA event here in Berlin the Chinese company has now revealed when the Huawei Watch will land in the United States and how much it will cost.
Huawei has officially unveiled the Mate S high end smartphone at its live event at the IFA trade show in Berlin. This handset slots nicely between the flagship P8/P8 Max and the mid-range Honor 7 and comes with some very appealing specs, a winning design, and if Huawei sticks to form an enticing price tag.
One of the devices Huawei will be unveiling at IFA in Berlin later this week will be the MateS, a smartphone that has been teased and will apparently come with Force Touch technology. Now we are getting our first look at the handset with this leaked shot that seems to show a real, if blurry, render of Huawei's high end product.
Huawei has officially confirmed its Honor 7 smartphone for the European market, where the company will be hoping for even some of the success the device has enjoyed so far. Nine million units have been pre-ordered in China, and while that is not a guarantee of purchase (as it would be in other countries) it does mean plenty of people are interested in the new mid-range device.
Huawei has raised the curtain on its newest smartphone, the Honor 7i, a mid-range smartphone that has been leaked plenty of times in recent weeks. You may remember that this is the quirky device with the sliding front facing camera, and those rumors were indeed true. However, while it was predicted to be a sliding camera, it is actually a flipping system that delivers the weirdest camera idea since Oppo's N3.
A post on Chinese social network Weibo gave as a glimpse of Huawei Honor 7i, a handset that comes with a quirky unique feature and is reported to be launching August 20th. Overall the device will be solidly spec'd, while its design sticks closely to what we would call "standard candy bar". However, this handset will have one aesthetic feature that makes it stand out... literally.
Huawei is being a bit cheeky with its promotion of the P8 flagship as it has been revealed that the company is making the landscape bezels thinner than they really are in promotional shots. If you look at the image above you will see an officially Huawei shot of the P8 with very thin landscape bezels, so thin in fact that they are almost non-existent with the powered up screen almost meeting the edge of the device.
Huawei has a new smartphone ready to launch at its scheduled September 2nd event at the IFA trade show in Berlin, but the handset getting announced is unlikely to be the Mate 8. When the press event was first teased it was thought that the Mate 8 would be the subject of the launch, but it now seems a revamped version of the current Mate 7 will be launched instead.
Huawei has launched a new smartphone today and it is the latest from the company to offer solid specs for an affordable price tag. In fact a very affordable price tag, under $100 in fact, making the new Honor 4A very much a budget device.
