Several Manufacturers May Launch Foldable Smartphones Next Year

Adnan Farooqui November 14, 2017


We’ve been hearing for many years now that Samsung is developing a foldable smartphone. While we’ve yet to see the company come out with one yet, ZTE launched its foldable device just last month. The ZTE Axon M is a dual screen smartphone that’s exclusive to AT&T in the United States. According to a new report, there’s going to be an influx of new foldable smartphones from several manufacturers next year.

Rumors and reports about Samsung’s foldable smartphone continue to come in. The company hasn’t said anything about its plans for a foldable smartphone as yet but the rumor mill is convinced that we’ll see one from Samsung at some point next year.

Chinese tech giant Huawei is also working on a foldable handset. The company’s dual screen smartphone is likely going to be unveiled before the end of next year.

Oppo, another Chinese manufacturer, has filed for patents related to foldable smartphones. This suggests that it’s also interested in launching dual screen smartphones. Since LG’s display subsidiary is said to be developing foldable displays, the possibility also exists that LG might jump on to the bandwagon as well at some point in the future.

If there’s a broad shift in the industry towards this form factor, we can certainly expect more companies to throw their hats in the ring.

Samsung’s Market Share In China Expected To Drop Below 2%

Tyler Lee November 13, 2017

In the mobile space, Samsung is still a pretty huge name and they are still a big player in the smartphone industry. However it seems that the company is slowly losing their lead in certain markets, such as in China where according to Strategy Analytics, the firm has predicted that Samsung’s market share in the country could drop below 2% in the next quarter.

Prior to this back in 2015, Samsung was leading the Chinese market with a market share of 20%, but it is clear that the competition from Chinese OEMs has put a ton of pressure on the company, with Huawei taking the lead. According to Lee Byung-tae, a professor at KAIST College of Business, he seems to believe that Samsung and other companies like LG are fighting an uphill battle in China.

Lee was quoted as saying, “It seems almost impossible for Samsung to upend the Chinese smartphone market reorganized by local firms with quality products and affordable prices. Since successful Chinese firms are expanding their presence in budget smartphone markets, including India, Samsung and LG’s global presence will shrink further unless they secure competitiveness against Chinese firms.”

We’re not sure if Samsung will be able to rebound from this, but the company is not alone. Earlier this year it was reported that Apple’s iPhone market share in China was also on the decline.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro Might Be Launched As An AT&T Exclusive

Adnan Farooqui November 9, 2017


Huawei is one of the fastest growing smartphone vendors in the world. It has shipped 100 million handsets so far this year. Despite its success in the smartphone market, Huawei’s devices are not sold by carrier partners in the United States. It’s possible to get them retailers and online via Amazon, but you won’t find one at your preferred carrier. That might be about to change in the near future.

It appears that Huawei might be gearing up to launch the Mate 10 Pro officially in the United States. When the handset arrives, it’s expected to be exclusive to AT&T.

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro was recently announced and while the company didn’t confirm this at that point in time, it’s now expected to launch it in the U.S. as an AT&T-exclusive.

Some firmware files have been discovered that show code for the AT&T-variant of this handset. The modified code suggests that the model headed to AT&T might be different to the one that’s going to be released elsewhere.

The firmware files also reveal that AT&T bloatware will be present on top of Android 8.0 Oreo and Huawei’s EMUI 8.0, but that’s to be expected from any carrier-branded Android device.

Huawei and AT&T have yet to confirm anything about the Mate 10 Pro’s official launch in the United States. We can expect to hear more about this in the coming weeks.

‘Made For Huawei’ Accessories Reportedly In The Making

Tyler Lee November 8, 2017

Official parts and accessories are usually priced higher than third-party options, but there is that added peace of mind knowing that the company that designed your smartphone also designed accessories specifically for it. However we suppose the next best thing could be officially-licensed accessories, which is what Huawei could be going for.

According to reports out of China, word on the street has it that Huawei is planning on launching a series of “Made for Huawei” accessories. It is unclear what this program will entail, such as whether it will be similar to Apple’s “Made For iPhone” program where the company basically endorses third-party products made for iPhones, or if we’re looking Huawei-made accessories for its products.

The report goes on to add that the first “Made for Huawei” accessory that will be launched will be a USB-C to HDMI adapter designed specifically for the Huawei Mate 10 series. We’re not sure what else could be planned, but for those of you who are stickler for official accessories then this could be worth keeping an eye out for.

With Huawei shipping as many as 100 million smartphones in 2017 alone, it looks like this could be a great initiative to either draw in customers or to court more accessories from third-party makers.

Huawei Has Shipped Over 100 Million Smartphones So Far This Year

Adnan Farooqui October 24, 2017


Huawei’s smartphone shipments have been picking up pace rapidly over the past few years. The company has now revealed that it shipped more than 100 million smartphones in the first three quarters of this year. It has seen a 19 percent year-over-year growth in the number of smartphones shipped in the first three quarters of a year.

The company has revealed that this growth has caused its operating revenue to surge by more than 30 percent in the January to September 2017 period. Huawei also increased the number of its worldwide retail outlets this year by 19 percent year-over-year to 42,300.

Huawei is certainly not going to rest on its laurels. The company is planning to launch more mid-range and high-end products to further expand its reach in the global smartphone market. It’s also going to work to improve its brand image.

It’s hopeful that it will be able to win more high-end customers. Huawei has more than 10,000 employees around the world that are dedicated to research and development. It’s hoping that they will come up with technologies that help the company sell more high-end devices, a segment of the market where profit margins are higher.

Huawei is racing towards the coveted spot of the world’s largest smartphone vendor, a position that has long been held by Samsung. It crossed Apple earlier this year to become the second largest vendor in the world. Huawei is already the top smartphone vendor in its home country of China.

Huawei May Launch Foldable Smartphone Next Year

Adnan Farooqui October 22, 2017


There has been a lot of talk about Samsung building a foldable smartphone for the past couple of years. However, we’ve yet to see anything tangible from the company. It’s certainly not the only major company that might be working on something like this. At least Huawei has officially confirmed that it has a working prototype of its foldable smartphone. Huawei is expected to launch its foldable smartphone at some point next year.

ZTE has already beaten Samsung to the punch by launching the Axon M. It’s a foldable smartphone that’s exclusive to AT&T in the United States. The Axon M has two individual displays that can be folded out to form a single, massive display.

Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu has revealed to CNET in a recent interview that “We already have a working sample” of the foldable smartphone. He did add that Huawei isn’t ready to launch the device as yet.

“We have two screens,” he said, adding that there’s still a small gap between the two displays and that “we should get rid of that gap.”

Yu mentioned that it’s possible that Huawei might launch its foldable smartphone in 2018. No further information has been revealed about the device’s specifications and features. We will likely start hearing about them in the weeks leading up to this handset’s launch.

Samsung hasn’t said anything concrete about its foldable smartphone release but recent reports suggest that it may also be released in 2018.

Huawei Watch 2 Pro Launched With eSIM Support

Adnan Farooqui October 22, 2017


The Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro were announced by the company in China over the weekend but the new handsets aren’t the only hardware that it has unveiled. Something that flew under the radar completely for the past couple of weeks has also been unveiled. Huawei has launched the new Watch 2 Pro in China. This smartwatch comes with eSIM support. This was a surprising announcement, given that Huawei didn’t talk about a new smartwatch at the international launch event in Munich.

There isn’t a lot of information available about the specifications of this smartwatch right now, however, reports reveal that it features a heart rate monitor, an onboard GPS, and NFC support for mobile payments with Huawei Pay. The defining feature is that this smartwatch has 4G/3G/2G support for its eSIM.

It’s also unclear what operating system this smartwatch is running, given that Google doesn’t officially have a presence in the country. The user interface is similar to that of Android Wear but it may not have any Google services.

It’s likely that Huawei will keep this smartwatch a China-exclusive. The company itself hasn’t said anything that would suggest that a global launch is on the cards for the Watch 2 Pro with eSIM.

Huawei has already started selling the Watch 2 Pro in China for nearly $400. While this smartwatch may not make it out of China, it does suggest that future smartwatches from Huawei that see a global release may very well feature eSIM support.

Huawei Mate 10 Review: Hands-On

Hubert Nguyen October 16, 2017

The Huawei Mate 10 is official, along with the Mate 10 Pro and the Mate Porsche Design edition. Although they have small variations, they do share a lot in common, and the new Mate 10 will provide a user-experience baseline which is slightly sublimed by the two derivatives. We spent some time with the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, so let’s take a more in-depth look at how good […]

Huawei Mate 10 Pro Might Ship With A Smartpen

Adnan Farooqui October 12, 2017


Huawei is finally going to unveil its new flagship smartphones next week. It has been teasing the Mate 10 for a while now. Reports suggest that Huawei is going to launch three Mate 10 models and if a new report is to be believed, at least one of the new models is going to ship with a smartpen. In case you didn’t know, a smartpen is different from a stylus.

Serial Twitter leakster @evleaks has tweeted a new image of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro which hints that the device is going to come with a smartpen. As previously mentioned, a smartpen isn’t like a conventional stylus. It’s something else entirely.

A smartpen is a Bluetooth-enabled pen that is used for writing on an actual writing pad. It enables users to write on real paper and then sends digitized copies of their notes to the smartphone. It’s not a stylus and can’t be used as one because it doesn’t work on touchscreens.

What we see in the image appears to be quite similar to the Moleskine Smart Writing Set so it’s possible that Huawei and Moleskine have joined forces on this. It’s also unclear if they have made modifications to the smartpen to make it double as a stylus as well.

We’ll only know for sure once the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is officially unveiled on October 16th.

Huawei Confirms Mate 10’s 4,000mAh Battery

Adnan Farooqui October 5, 2017


Huawei has been teasing its new flagship devices for the past couple of weeks. As it continues to build hype for its new handsets, the company today confirmed the Huawei Mate 10 battery capacity. The new flagship from the Chinese company is going to feature a 4,000mAh battery. That’s more than what most Android flagships on the market today offer.

This isn’t all that surprising, though, when you consider the fact that the Huawei Mate 9 also came with a 4,000mAh battery. Huawei hasn’t confirmed if all variants of the Mate 10 will have the 4,000mAh battery.

I’m sure some would be expecting the Pro variant to take it up a notch, but whether or not that’s going to happen remains to be seen. Huawei confirmed the Mate 10 battery capacity via a tweet today. It points out to users that they will be able to get through the entire day on a single charge.

The teaser wraps up by reminding people that Huawei is due to unveil its new flagship smartphone on October 16th. The company has recently been playing up the AI-angle for this handset. The chip that powers it, the Kirin 970 by Huawei itself, has been designed for enhanced artificial intelligence capabilities.

We’ll have to wait until October 16th to find out whether the device really does outperform its rivals in this category.
