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.
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.
Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, were released preinstalled with the tech giant’s own Android 7.1 Nougat, a pretty standard update but still one that came with new features.
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.
When news broke out that Google was turning to HTC for its its upcoming Pixel smartphones, some may be wondering why the tech giant was not partnering with Huawei. After all, their most recent collaboration, the Nexus 6P, was considered by many industry watchers and consumers alike as an impressive phablet offering.
The Pixel C tablet that Google unveiled last year (together with the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P) is kind of hard to top. But it appears that Huawei might be left with no other choice but to try and live up to that device as it teams up with Google in building a new tablet.
It has only been half a year since Huawei first introduced an Honor smartphone to the United States mobile market, but the Chinese phone maker is already offering a new one. Introducing the Honor 8, which Huawei is positioning as a smartphone for millennials, and it is set to be made available for preordering beginning on August 17th of this year by way of the Honor official website, Best Buy, Amazon, and other ecommerce entities for a price of $400.
Huawei has officially unveiled its newest phablet offering, and it is really big. The Honor Note 8 is the latest addition to the Chinese phone maker’s Honor line of smartphones, and it comes with a whopping 6.6 inch display screen, with a resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels. This means that it is bigger and even sharper than Mi Max, the other behemoth phablet announced by another Chinese mobile giant, Xiaomi, in May earlier this year.
Republic Wireless has revealed that it is expanding its existing mobile plans by adding brand new options starting at $15 a month. The mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) is shifting its service from CDMA only (on the network of major US wireless carrier Sprint) to GSM inclusive. What this means for mobile users is that they will now find it easier to bring their own handsets to the all new mobile plans.
