For the first time ever, Xiaomi took the opportunity to showcase some of its smartphone devices at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show recently held in the Entertainment Capital of the World. By way of a press conference, the Chinese mobile giant debuted a couple of new handsets, but unfortunately, it appears that these new offerings will only be made available in the company’s native homeland, China.
Can Huawei successfully conquer the United States mobile market this year? It certainly thinks it can with the recent launch of its newest phablet offering, the Mate 9. The device comes with a rather formidable $600 price, and is the first smartphone in the world to be integrated with Alexa, the artificial intelligence (AI) digital assistant developed by Amazon.
Smartphones with dual camera configurations are making waves in this year’s Consumer Electronic Show currently being held in the Entertainment Capital of the World. There was Huawei’s Honor 6X and Asus’ ZenFone 3 Zoom, which both made their debuts in CES 2017.
Huawei recently took the opportunity to debut the newest addition to its Honor lineup of midrange smartphone devices -- the Honor 6X. With a rather friendly price of $199.99 upfront, the Honor 6X certainly counts as one of the more affordable smartphone releases in the last few months. For those who found the previous model, the Honor 5X, a decent find, it is a sure bet that they will also appreciate the Honor 6X, which comes with enhancements but without too much added cost.
The OnePlus 3 was only released as recently as June earlier this year, but OnePlus is already offering an upgraded version of its latest flagship device. Indeed, in many ways, the OnePlus 3T is a solid follow up to the OnePlus 3, and almost certainly an improved effort, with a new chip set (Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor), a bigger battery, and enhanced camera specifications.
Apple could be in harm’s way if Donald Trump imposes trade tariffs on China, which has become arguably the manufacturing capital of the world. Well, at least according to an editorial published by Global Times. In that editorial, various theories were thrown regarding possible countermoves by China to any trade war happening when the President-Elect takes office.
Users of Android powered mobile devices know exercises of patience all too well, especially when it comes to waiting for the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system to make its way to their smartphones and tablet devices, particularly those not made by Google. Still, some phone makers are quicker than others (like LG), while for the rest, it often takes months.
Not many may have heard of LeEco. That is okay -- the company is after all a relatively new entrant to the global mobile market. In its native homeland China, however, LeEco is considered one of the biggest names when it comes to tech, with products and service that range from smartphone devices and television sets to e-commerce and films. And LeEco just keeps on expanding -- as a matter of fact, the firm has joined forces with Faraday Future in going into the automobile business.
As promised nearly a month ago, Lenovo has officially launched its newest phablet offering, the Phab 2 Pro. For those not familiar with this device, it has the distinction of being the first smartphone out in the market to come with support for Google’s Tango augmented reality tech. The handset comes with a price of $500.
During the third quarter of 2016, worldwide smartphone sales are starting to come around as the global mobile industry begins to recover from a slump in the first six months of the year. But wait -- that growth appears to be driven not by familiar powerhouse names such as Samsung, Apple, and LG, but by Chinese phone makers like Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo.
