Huawei device

Huawei’s “G750″ (most likely the Glory 4) has some leaked pictures going around the web, and the device is rumored to have MediaTek’s octa-core MT6592 CPU running inside— MediaTek says that the processor can run all eight cores simultanoeusly— an impressive feat.

The processor supports 4K video playback and cameras with 16MP stills and full HD.

The device is supposed to have a 5.5-inch display but only with 720p resolution, 2GB RAM, and 32 GB internal storage. The device is expected to ship with Android 4.2.2 (according to a leaked photo) but that can always change. Hit the link below from GSM Arena for more photos.

Huawei-Glory-4

The Huawei Glory 4 was teased a while back by Huawei CEO Richard Yu, but no specs for the device were known until today. The specs for the Glory 4, a rival to Xiaomi’s Red Rice, were leaked today from Chinese website MyDrivers, showing off a very impressive phone indeed!

Richard Yu mentioned that the Glory 4 would be a better value for the money than the Xiaomi Red Rice, and the specs of the device certainly aren’t a laughing matter. In fact, the Glory 4 is set to make use of the MediaTek MT6592 “true octa-core” processor, as well as a 720p HD touchscreen, 13MP rear facing camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera. The device is also set to have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, and will run Huawei Emotion UI 2.0 on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The only thing left to find out about the device is it’s price. Don’t expect to see this one outside of China.

tagged , , ,

huawei_ascend_mate_2_leak4Huawei’s Ascend P6S isn’t their only device that has leaked. Today, the Ascend Mate 2 has posed for some photos and we have information on the specifications for the handset. This phablet’s screen comes in at 6.1-inches. But we now know that it will be a 1080p IPS display. The Mate 2 will have a 1.6Ghz quad-core Cortex-A9 processor with 2GB of RAM and Mali-450 GPU. Like the Ascend P6S, this handset will run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Huawei’s Emotion UI, but a software update could allow it to ship with Android 4.4 KitKat at launch. Right now we see 16GB variant as the only storage option. With both the Ascend P6S and Mate 2 seeing massive leaks as of late, we can expect to see them both formally unveiled fairly soon.

huawei_ascend_p6s_1

Huawei’s upcoming device for its Ascend line has leaked in multiple photos. The Ascend P6S is set to have an octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM underneath a 4.7-inch IPS 720p display. The device is going to have a brand new chipset that allows power consumption to be lowered while also improving performance by 80%. The new chipset is likely to be based on ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture that allows for eight cores to be running the show with less power consumption and impressive performance. The front camera will be an impressive 5MP camera and the rear will be 8MP. The leaks show the device running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean; however, Android 4.4 KitKat is expected in January so there’s a chance it could launch with the latest version of Android.

HuaweiSamsung and Apple continue to be at the top of global smartphone market share, but there’s a new number 3. Huawei has overtaken LG, according to estimates from Strategy Analytics. Huawei now owns 5.1% of sales, while LG is at 4.8%, a switch in positions from Quarter 2. This isn’t the first time Huawei has appeared at this position, but while LG continued to grow during Q2, Huawei grew even faster. Researchers attribute the rise to the Ascend P6 and the mainstream G610, particularly in China.

Otherwise, Samsung still leads the world with a 35.2% share, with Apple still in second place with 13.4%. Click through the break to read the full official press release from Strategy Analytics.

Microsoft also asked Samsung and Huawei to put Windows on Android tablets, dual-booted Galaxy Tab coming?

by Aditya Thawardas on
tagged , , , ,

dual_boot_galaxyLast week, we heard the crazy report that Microsoft was asking HTC to put Windows Phone OS on Android tablets. Apparently, HTC wasn’t the only manufacturer Microsoft talked to. A new report says that Microsoft also had discussions with Samsung and Huawei asking them to dual-boot their Android devices with Windows Phone OS for smartphones, and Windows RT for tablets – for free.

Why would Microsoft do this for free, plus compensation for necessary adaptation costs? Because they desperately want it to appear that their operating system is growing in popularity. In addition, it seems that Samsung already has a Windows RT/Android dual-booted Galaxy Tab 2014 edition in the works. It’s going to be around 12 inches, very thin, and with a “crazy good” retina display, according to sources.

Stay tuned for more info.

Huawei pulls back the curtains on the Honor 3, a rugged, waterproof smartphone

huawei honor 3

Today, Huawei unveiled their Honor 3 smartphone, which is following the waterproof/dustproof trend. It’s not a high-end flagship offering, but it’s a cool device nonetheless. You’ll find a modest 720p 4.7-inch screen that can recognize wet hands, a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, a 13 megapixel camera, Android 4.2.2, 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory. You’ll also find an IR blaster on board, which makes the device a pretty good bang for your buck when you consider it’s priced at about $309.

What do you think about all of these waterproof devices we’ve seen in the past year? Just a useless trend or a nice option to have in a smartphone?

Huawei faces shortages for the 4.7 inch LCD Panel used in the Ascend P6

by Aditya Thawardas on
tagged ,

ascend p6The Huawei Ascend P6 is one of the world’s thinnest smartphones, but being so thin could cost them. Huawei believes that they could sell 10 million units of the device, but they have run into a problem. The 4.7-inch HD in-cell LCD panels used to make the phone’s screen are running out, as there is currently more demand than supply for the P6. The phone is currently priced at CNY $2688 ($440 USD), but if demand stays the same and supply goes down, that price is going to have to go higher.

Huawei announces MediaPad 7 Youth as latest member of tablet series

huawei_mediapad_7_youth

Huawei announced today the launch of the Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth as part of their MediaPad line of tablet devices. The device appears to be aimed at younger users, especially those in school. To help make it sturdy enough for that use, Huawei built it using an aluminum metal unibody making it both strong and light. At just 9.9mm in thickness and only weighing 350g, the device should easily slide into the typical student’s bookbag and be able to handle the abuse it will suffer in there.

The MediaPad 7 Youth is equipped with a 7-inch full HD 1080p capable screen driven by a 1.6GHz processor. Power comes from a 4100mAh battery that Huawei says will last almost two weeks in standby mode. Running Android 4.1, Huawei will be released with support for HSPA+ networks and WiFi support.

Huawei did not release pricing information, but they did indicate the device would be available during Q3 of 2013. Unfortunately for North American customers, it looks like the device will only be made available in Russia, China, Asia Pacific markets, Middle East markets, and in Europe.

Could HTC merge with Huawei?

HTC_One_Back_HTC_Logo_TA

As HTC continues to battle a two-year financial slide, one analyst has suggested a merger with Huawei could be a way out for HTC. HTC and their fans had high hopes the HTC One would prove to be a product with enough popularity to at least turn the ship around financially. During the first half of 2013, HTC also started to concentrate on some unique marketing strategies, usually aimed squarely at market leader Samsung. To their credit, the HTC One is generally regarded as a premiere smartphone and has garnered extensive praise throughout the industry. Sales of the device did have a positive financial impact on HTC during the second quarter of 2013 when it was finally released, but not to the extent hoped for. Despite plans to model a sales strategy similar to many other major manufacturers, HTC sales are predicted to stay flat for the third quarter, leading some to question what other steps the company could take to prevent a complete collapse. » Read the rest
