The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 phablet was made available in the U.S. not too long ago. And now, AnTuTu has already revealed the successor in its benchmark listing, suggesting yet another massive device with a decent hardware inside. Expectedly, the manufacturer has gone with its home grown octa core Kirin 920 chipset packing a Mali-T624 GPU, so it’s not all that bad as far as hardware is concerned. The display size is mentioned to be 6.1 inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is in line with the current crop of flagships....

Huawei is a company with large global ambitions. So any new device the company launches is bound to generate interest across the world. And to fuel our excitement even further, the company’s long rumored Honor 6 (Mulan) smartphone has just gone official in China sporting flagship level specs in a sleek aluminum frame with heat dissipation. The handset is also the company’s first to sport the homegrown Kirin 920 octa core chipset, which has four Cortex-A15 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores. The Honor 6 also comes with a 5 inch...

The Huawei Ascend P6 is now making the jump from Android 4.2 to Android 4.4, by skipping Android 4.3 altogether. As you would expect, this is a pretty massive update coming from Android 4.2, so things will be substantially different after the update. This is also a testament to Huawei’s commitment towards providing the latest version of Android to its device owners, despite having a relatively poor history with updates. The Ascend P6 is the company’s handset from last year, so customers have been waiting quite a long for...

The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 is the company’s latest phablet which was launched a few months ago. It was said that the handset will eventually make its way to the U.S. but we didn’t quite know when. And today, Huawei has announced the arrival of the smartphone in the region along with a dedicated online store gethuawei.com to purchase the smartphone. Users are only able to purchase the Ascend Mate 2 LTE at the moment, but more handsets will be hopefully added soon. Customers also have a wide range of accessories to choose from...

The battle to come up with the better mobile processor has just heated up as Huawei officially announced its Kirin 920 SoC in a press event held in Beijing. We’ve been hearing about this chip since last April when Huawei’s Senior VP announced that the company was coming up with a new flagship smartphone which would use its own new octa-core processor.   What makes the Huawei Kirin 920 interesting is that the company claims it can outperform the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805. This latest chip is composed of four Cortex-A15 cores with clock...

First promised in January, KitKat was ultimately rolled out over-the-air to Huawei’s Ascend P6 back in March, but exclusively for domestic users. Of course, Huawei pledged to spread the love “internationally” as soon as possible, which unfortunately is yet to happen. A number of timelines were rumored, a June ETA was even made official, but as it turns out, the P6 makers won’t be able to meet the self-imposed deadline. Instead, they’ve simply set a new one – early July. That’s what the Beta Tester section of the OEM’s...

While most places around the world still don’t have a 4G LTE (Cat 4) connection, Huawei has announced that it is planning to release a Cat 6 LTE smartphone before the year is over. President of Huawei’s consumer division for Europe Richard Ren said in an interview with uswitch that “in the coming second half of the year, we will launch the Cat 6 smartphone.”   What is a Cat 6 smartphone? It’s basically a device that can take advantage of a Cat 6 4G LTE connection. This allows it to have a download speed of up to 300mbps...

This is a Samsung’s world. But it wouldn’t be nothing without a rival or an opponent. Luckily, there are plenty of those to go around nowadays, as veterans LG, HTC or Sony seem to be getting backup from rookies OnePlus, Oppo or Huawei. Rookies when it comes to engaging in the big fights, the big leagues, because Huawei for one has been around since 1987. The past few years have seen the Chinese become bolder and bolder in their bid to capture mobile market share and the freshly unveiled Ascend P7 may be exactly what the doctor ordered...
