While it is true that the P20 and P20 Pro flagships that Huawei had officially introduced more than three weeks ago are impressive devices, they are not exactly what you can call budget friendly handsets. Thankfully, the third biggest phone maker in the world still has its Honor lineup of midrange smartphones, and just this week, the Chinese tech giant has decided to add a new member to the family -- the Honor 10.
According to a report recently released by Counterpoint, one of Apple’s flagship device offerings last year, the iPhone X, has managed to capture 35 percent of the entire profits of the worldwide smartphone market during the final quarter of last year. And while the total profits of the global mobile industry decreased 1 percent in Q4 2017 compared to that of Q4 2016, the iPhone X did help Apple register a 1 percent year over year improvement during the last three months of 2017.
Nearly a couple of weeks ago, Huawei had announced its latest high end phablets -- the P20 and the P20 Pro. While its follow up models to last year’s P10 handsets continued to offer some delicious flagship level specifications, the third biggest phone maker in the world appeared to be more excited about showcasing the P20’s cutting edge camera system, boosted by the Chinese tech giant’s ongoing collaboration with Leica, the highly rated German camera maker.
Huawei recently held an exclusive event at the Grand Palais in the city of Paris in France this week, where the third biggest phone maker in the world (next to industry leaders Samsung and Apple) took the opportunity to formally announce its latest flagship device offerings -- the Huawei P20 and the Huawei P20 Pro.
Huawei currently enjoys the title of being the third biggest vendor of smartphone devices in the face of the planet (trailing only Samsung and Apple), but in the United States mobile market, success has remained sort of elusive for the Chinese tech giant. And it appears that things are not getting better, with the recent news that one of its most important retail partners in the country, Best Buy, is planning to stop selling Huawei mobile devices in the weeks to come.
Despite its recent setbacks, Huawei should still deserve a lot of credit for the way it has continued to build its impressive Honor lineup of smartphones. One of the newest additions to this range of handsets is the Honor View 10, which the world’s third biggest seller of mobile devices is eagerly positioning as an affordable choice for those looking to purchase a device with decent specs but do not have the money to buy a flagship offering.
Xiaomi is widely considered as one of the biggest phone brands in the world, but penetrating the United States mobile market has proven tricky for the Chinese tech giant in recent years. But that may change soon with news that the company is looking to finally release its handsets in America some time later this year.
As the world’s biggest tech conference on mobile technology, the annual Mobile World Congress has on several occasions served as a venue for mobile manufacturers to introduce concept smartphones. In this year’s event, Vivo took the opportunity to unveil its APEX FullView concept smartphone, and the Chinese tech giant is eagerly positioning it as the smartphone that possesses the highest screen to body ratio.
