Earlier last week, Chinese manufacturer Huawei posted a teaser for the launch of a wearable device. At the time, it was believed that the device would be compatible with 4G LTE networks. It seems like part of it was true after all, as the manufacturer has shown off a new Smartband (not a smartwatch as rumored) running the company’s proprietary 4.5G networks. These networks will be officially available starting next year, beginning with China. Explaining a bit about the 4.5G technology, Huawei said – “4.5G supports up...

A new report suggests that Chinese manufacturer Huawei could be looking to launch a new smartwatch at the MWC event early next month with an LTE chip on board. The company’s teaser above is a clear jibe at Samsung’s “What is Next” teaser which was issued for the Galaxy S6. We can see a silhouette of a smartwatch here with a curved display, but not much is revealed apart from that. The wearable could compete with the Samsung Gear S in the market which also features cellular connectivity. Wearables have evolved dramatically...

Chinese manufacturer Huawei plans to keep itself very busy at the MWC this March. With the arrival of several devices like the Mate 7 Compact, Mate 8 and the P8 expected during the event, a new revelation claims that the company is also looking to unveil a new wearable and a bunch of tablets in Barcelona. The smartwatch will reportedly be based on Android Wear, which is good news for fans of Google’s wearable platform. There will also be a top end smart band from the company apparently. Reports further mention that the company...

A new leak on Twitter has revealed what is believed to be Huawei’s upcoming “compact” smartphone. This device known as the Mate 7 Compact is reportedly a smaller version of the Mate 7 phablet which was launched not too long ago. Speaking of the size, the Mate 7 Compact is expected to pack a 5.5 inch display on board, so it’s not all that “compact“. We’re treated to a glimpse of the front as well as the back of the smartphone, although there’s no way to confirm their authenticity at this...

Huawei could be taking some cues from Sony as it plans to shift its focus solely towards high end devices this year, a report says. The Chinese manufacturer has been quite active in the midrange and low end market segment with its Ascend and Honor series of smartphones. However, with shrinking profits and the increase in competition from regional rivals like Xiaomi, it was only a matter of time before Huawei started focusing on the high end devices. Huawei believes that there’s very little margin with low end devices, despite...

Chinese manufacturer Huawei sells its devices in a large number of countries, including the U.S. The company’s smartphones are known by the popular ‘Ascend‘ moniker. However, it seems like the company wants to start afresh with its smartphones as it has reportedly decided to ditch the Ascend branding from its handsets. This should effectively make the Ascend Mate 2 the last device to sport the branding. So what will future Huawei smartphones be known as? Well, it is believed that the company will keep things simple...

A new report indicates that Chinese manufacturer Huawei saw a sales increase of nearly 33% in 2014. The manufacturer is believed to have churned out $11.8 billion in revenue this year. The figure might not be much considering that the manufacturer shipped close to 75 million smartphones in the year. This is down from its original estimate of selling 80 million smartphones in the year. Even with this figure, the company has seen a sales increase of 40% year over year, so there’s not much to complain about if you’re a Huawei...

Huawei has officially launched the Honor 6 Plus smartphone in global markets carrying a price tag of just $399. This comes after the company recently mentioned that the smartphone will not be available globally, so it appears to be a very fortunate U-Turn by the company. The device was only recently launched in China, so it’s still a relatively new device. The Honor 6 Plus comes with a 5.5 inch 1080p display, a 1.8 GHz octa core Kirin 925 SoC, 3GB of RAM, a 3,600 mAh battery, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot and...
