Leica has a well-earned reputation for making some of the best camera gear in the world, so it was a pretty big deal when it announced a partnership with Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei, and their first jointly developed phone camera in Huawei’s flagship P9. While Leica isn’t new to partnerships—its splashy name has…
We’ve just wrapped up the second day of Mobile World Congress, the annual mobile technology conference in Barcelona. We’ve seen smartphones, VR headsets, and some batshit crazy stuff (see photo above)—and almost all of it has been awesome. Here are some of our favorites:
Huawei is known for making smartphones. And some of them are actually pretty good. Now, the company is making convertible tablets too... with keyboards... and Windows 10. The result is the new Huawei Matebook, a device with a striking similarity to the Microsoft Surface but packed with a couple of quirks that make it…
Last year saw some high-profile Surface tablet ripoffs, so it’s only logical that the trend will continue in 2016.
The Huawei Honor 5X is perfectly fine, but its mostly metal design makes this $200 chunk of phone passable as something much nicer than it really is. Once you get beyond the hardware illusion, you’re left with a major software identity crisis. On the Honor 5X, that crisis is called Emotion UI (EMUI), Huawei’s own…
Battery life is one of the biggest headaches in tech—but while capacity remains a problem, manufacturers are at least making big improvements to charge times. Like Huawei, whose new experimental set-up can take a dead battery to 48 percent change in about five minutes.
Huawei, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, is slowly becoming a big deal in the west, too—and it’s latest chipset may just provide its competitors with a little cause for concern.
Huawei has a fine track record of borrowing from Apple’s designs. You can perhaps expect the Chinese manufacturer to produce even more iPhone clones though—because it now counts an old Apple Creative Director as a member of its staff.
When it comes to tablets, the current thinking seems to be “go big or go home,” or at the very least, “come with a keyboard.” The Galaxy Tab S2, on the other hand, seems like a careful perfection of the way tablets used to be — not a computer replacement, but a straightforward 8-inch or 9.7-inch tab with no real…
Smartwatches, wristables, wearables — we’re getting a shitload of them this fall. As far as function is concerned, many of them will be carbon copies. What sets wearable winners like the Huawei Watch apart is the luxe aesthetic of blingy jewelry.
You’ve got to hand it to Huawei. Just a week out from Apple’s iPhone 6S launch, it’s revealed the Mate S, which has almost certainly stolen a bit of the Apple phone’s thunder by including its iOS rival’s expected lead feature.
Anything Apple can do, Huawei can do — or at least it’s going to try. With it’s new flagship, the 5.5-inch Mate S, it’s bringing the exact same Force Touch technology seen in the Apple Watch to a phone for the first time.
While Android makers like LG, Motorola, and ASUS, are working on their second-gen smartwatches, Huawei is finally getting around to the first. Previously announced back in Barcelona this spring, the Huawei Watch is finally ready to conquer wrists. And it’s a good start—with room for improvement.
We’re only a few weeks out from IFA, but if you were hoping for a preview of this year’s most eccentric devices, Chinese company Huawei has you covered. This is our very first peek at the new Honor 7i, where a flippable, selfie-ready camera takes center stage. Or the world’s fanciest high tech phone projectile. You…
We started hearing whispers about two months ago that Google would pull a first with its smartphones and tap Chinese company Huawei to churn out its new Nexus device. And now, with the familiar late-October release date for Nexuses approaching, rumors are starting to reach critical mass.
