The latest and greatest Huawei Honor 8 was officially revealed for the European market, including all the juicy details such as the pricing (€399) and availability. The funny thing is that Huawei seems to love the Honor 8, as they released it three times including now.
Sometimes you can see a smartphone release coming a mile away, other times, it’s not nearly as clear. That’s the case with the Huawei G9 Plus, which has just been unveiled with little fanfare in China today.
We haven’t seen too many handsets of note pass through TENAA this week, but that will probably change as we creep towards the weekend. One exception is the Huawei Mate S2, which has a very familiar design if you were a fan of the Nexus lineup last year.
Huawei is outgrowing its name as just another Chinese smartphone brand into a global entity. Almost all of their recent releases have been received well and they are mostly praised for their superb build quality, value for money, performance, and innovative features. The most path-breaking change came in the form of the P9 wherein they associated with Leica to produce one of the best camera phones. Their Emotion UI has received a lot of positive reviews for its simplicity and amazing features. Now, they’ve taken a step forward and patented Huawei Supercharge technology to go up against Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, OnePlus’s Dash Charge, and Motorola’s Turbopower.
The new Huawei Mate 9 should be unveiled officially some time next month, in September at IFA, at least according to the rumor mill and the Chinese tech giant even scheduled a special press event during that period. So, we’re almost sure that the Mate 9 will hit the world one month from now, give or take, but today we have some leaked specs via GFX Bench.
The rumors surrounding this year’s Nexus devices still haven’t confirmed whether they are coming from HTC or Huawei or both of them. It is alleged that HTC would be making this year’s Nexus devices. There have been numerous leaks about the HTC Nexus devices and today we have a listing of the alleged Nexus Sailfish from GFXBench. The listing confirms almost all of the specs of the phone apart from how the phone looks like. The alleged renders of the phone showed a cool new design which might turn things around for HTC.
Things are moving in a big way for the Chinese tech giant, as today’s the day when the flagship Huawei Honor Note 8 was finally unveiled, together with its cheaper yet equally honorable brother, the Honor 5 Play.
Earlier today we told you about the big, bad Honor 8 Note that was unveiled. Now it’s time to take a look at something on the other end of the smartphone spectrum with the Honor 5, which will soon roll out in China.
It’s a big week in the smartphone world as numerous manufacturers are launching handsets. The Honor Note 8 release is one of the first out of the gate, and we’ve got the scoop on the Honor Note 8 price, specs, and availability.
If you’re a (former) Warcraft (or Starcraft) player, you probably know what “Samsung Gosu” means. Gosu is a Korean term used by hardcore keyboard warriors with regard to a highly skilled player which dominates the game. And speaking about dominating the “game”, the Korean tech giant Samsung managed to ship over 80 million smartphones in the second quarter of 2016, dominating (as in “pwning) “the big game” authoritatively.
