Half a dozen of America’s top intelligence officials recently told the Senate Intelligence Committee that would want consumers in the United States not to use any devices, as well as services, from Chinese tech companies, even globally known brands such as Huawei and ZTE.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day (or maybe the Chinese New Year celebration), OnePlus has decided to introduce a Lava Red colored variant to its OnePlus 5T phablet. The Lava Red OnePlus 5T will officially make its debut on February 6th, and will come with a price of $559 with 128 gigabytes of built in memory.
Boy, it appears that Huawei just can not catch a break in America. According to a report recently published by Bloomberg, it turns out that Verizon Wireless was also under pressure by the United States government to abandon its plan of selling Huawei branded mobile devices to American consumers. On top of that, the US government is also strongly urging the Big Red to terminate any existing partnership with the Chinese tech giant with regards to standards for a 5G service offering.
Vivo’s new X20 Plus UD phablet is considered by many as the first ever smartphone in the world to sport an in-screen fingerprint sensor, and it will officially be launching in China, the phone maker’s native homeland, this coming January 24th. After the handset hits store shelves (at least in the Chinese mobile market) this week, other mobile brands are expected to also introduce their own take on the under-display fingerprint scanner concept.
At the start of this year, Huawei has reason to be unhappy. It was hoping to partner with major US wireless carrier AT&T in pushing its flagship devices to American mobile users this year, but the second biggest mobile operator in the country has since backed out of the deal.
At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Vivo was able to successfully demo a fully functioning prototype of its under-display fingerprint scanning technology. Although the Chinese tech giant’s prototype handset does not come with any official model or product name yet, it is nevertheless a real, physical prototype, as opposed to an idea or a virtual simulation.
Samsung is planning to officially introduce the Galaxy S9, its first flagship offering for this year, at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) event, which will be held in the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain this February. As reported by ZDNet, DJ Koh, the president of the South Korean tech giant’s mobile division, made the announcement during the Consumer Electronics Show, which is ongoing right now in Las Vegas, Nevada.
At this year’s annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) being held in the city of Las Vegas in Nevada, Huawei took the opportunity to announce US pricing and release details for the Honor 7X, its newest midrange phablet offering, as well as confirm that the Honor View 10 (also known as the Honor V10) will also be launching in America within this year.
According to a report recently published by The Information, Huawei is said to be planning to formally launch its flagship phablet offering, the Mate 10, in the United States mobile market less than a couple of months from now through AT&T.
Huawei and Xiaomi are two of the largest phone makers in China (and among the top five across the globe), but for all their success in their native homeland, penetrating the United States mobile market remains a challenge. But as recently reported by Bloomberg, both companies apparently have big plans for next year.
