Huawei is continue to enhance its position in the smartphone market. The Chinese company is currently locked in a fight for third place in the market against the likes of Xiaomi, Lenovo/Motorola, and LG. Huawei's third quarter shipments suggest that company may be the front runner to take that third position at the end of this year.
Huawei is releasing plenty of new smartphones in the coming weeks, and the latest is the Mate 8, which will be launched on November 5 according to an invitation found on Chinese social media website Weibo. We know the Mate 8 will probably be flagship quality because Huawei is advertising it as the device that will carry the company's new Kirin 950 chipset.
Huawei has officially announced its Honor 5X smartphone, the latest affordable handset that offers surprisingly good specs and the tinge of premium build. As we have become used to however, the Honor 5X will only be available in Huawei's China homeland, at least initially.
Huawei has a new smartphone launching on November 3rd, the Glory Play 5X, and the Chinese company has now opened pre-orders for that handset. The device is available through online retailers in China, namely VMall and TMall.
Chinese brands have spotty history in terms of updating their smartphones to new versions of the Android platform, and some just never bother doing it. Mega brand Huawei is different and tends to treat new Android builds well, and that is certainly the case for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The company has now confirmed its Marshmallow roadmap, highlighting exactly which products will be landing the software in the future.
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.
