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.
Earlier this week, leaker extraordinaire Evan Blass posted in Twitter images of what appears to be ads for a certain Huawei PCE Series device. There were four ads in all, and they seem to highlight the handset’s camera specs and imaging capabilities, with mentions of triple lens cameras on the rear side, 40 megapixel images, 5X hybrid zooming that takes full advantage of both optical and digital zoom in photographing far away subjects, and a 24 megapixel shooter on the front side.
More than a couple of weeks ago, Huawei had confirmed the existence of its latest midrange phablet offering -- the Honor 7X. Despite publishing the specifications and features of the newest addition to the Chinese phone maker’s Honor lineup of budget friendly devices, no details were mentioned with regards to pricing and availability.
A little more than a month since launching a couple of new phablet offerings, the Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro, Huawei is debuting yet another smartphone, this time around, a new addition to its Honor lineup of midrange of devices. Introducing the Honor 7X, which is sort of the successor to last year’s Honor 6X. Whereas the Honor 6X delivered a twin camera set up at a midrange price, the Honor 7X aims to attract buyers with its generous 5.93 inch Full View display screen.
One can argue that ZTE officially got the ball rolling when it comes to foldable smartphone devices when it formally introduced its Axon M handset earlier this week. It goes without saying that other phone makers will definitely not just sit idly by. As a matter of fact, another Chinese mobile giant, Huawei, has revealed that it is also busy polishing its own take on the foldable phone concept, and the company promises that its offering will likely debut some time next year.
