Chinese manufacturer Huawei is a big name in the global smartphone segment, although it has been relatively distant from the American markets (despite launching a handset last year). The company will now make its intentions clear next month with an event scheduled for the 2nd of June. It is possible that the company will even launch a couple of new devices for the U.S. markets to start things off. The announcement will be made in New York City with the event scheduled to take place at 10AM (ET). Considering that Huawei is rumored to...

A Chinese analyst has now spilled the beans on Huawei’s upcoming Nexus device, and we’re not disappointed. According to him, the handset will sport a 5.7 inch 2K resolution display along with the octa core Snapdragon 810 SoC. He didn’t offer any further details on the hardware of the smartphone, but this is more than enough to go with. A smaller display indicates that Google is listening to consumer complaints over the Nexus 6 sporting a massive display. As for the Snapdragon 810, we hope Google and Huawei will have...

The Huawei SnapTo smartphone was recently announced by the company sporting a budget price tag and an impressive hardware specs sheet. The handset is now available for cheaper than usual courtesy of a limited period deal over at Amazon. This unlocked handset which originally retailed for $179.99 can be yours for a meager $139.99. This is an excellent deal on the smartphone and easily the best we’ve seen so far. There is one caveat though. Interested customers will have to get it before 3PM Central Time (4PM Eastern Time) as the...

The Huawei Watch was announced roughly a week ago before the official start of the MWC 2015 event. Rumors had suggested that the wearable would be priced high, contrary to the company’s policy of offering high end products at low cost. It now seems like those reports were accurate all along as a premature listing on Amazon has revealed the actual pricing of the smartwatch, and we’re not very impressed. While it could well be wrong, Amazon’s listing suggests that the smartwatch will cost  close to $1000 at the time of...

Huawei unveiled its very first smartwatch a couple of days ago, which won widespread acclaim. A new rumor now claims that the company could further improve its partnership with Google by producing the next Nexus device. There’s no clarity on whether this will be a smartphone or a tablet like the Nexus 9, but it’s good news that Google is looking to reach out to Chinese players for the production of the next major Nexus device. It is said that Huawei’s ability to manufacture chipsets on its own had a bearing on Google’s...

The CEO of Huawei, Richard Yu has a reputation for being outspoken at times. He seems to be keen to hold on to that tag as he has formally announced the company’s intentions to go mainstream in the U.S. markets. As of now, only the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 is officially available for purchase in the country while the flagship offerings from the manufacturer are missing from the list. We can expect that to change over the coming months though. Yu said – “In the future, our main competition will be from Western companies,...

Just before HTC took the wraps off the One M9 smartphone, Huawei took the stage in Barcelona to unveil the Huawei Watch, which is its official entry in the smartwatch segment. The wearable is based on the Android Wear platform, which makes it the seventh smartwatch to be running on Google’s smartwatch OS. The smartwatch has a circular display, much like the Moto 360 and the LG G Watch R. It is easily the best looking wearable available today, at least among Android Wear offerings. Inside the sturdy looking body is a 4GB storage...

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...
