UAWEI formally announced the Nova 2i for the Philippine market yesterday, but the Chinese manufacturer isn’t done adding to the pile of lanky phones with 18:9 screens just yet. And no, we’re not talking about the Mate 10, which is slated to take the stage on October 16.
HIS just in: The Huawei Nova 2i, the smartphone the Chinese brand has been teasing these past few weeks, is official in the Philippines. And its surprise, sudden entrance — or, okay, announcement — is nothing short of something worthy of a superstar. It got us to sit up and take notice because of its palatable price of just P14,990 or roughly $292.
UAWEI has silently launched a new smartphone this weekend, though those familiar with the Chinese OEM’s recent outings will be familiar with this one. And it’s possibly arriving in the Philippines.
S this a classic case of “what goes up must come down”? For the first time ever, Huawei’s global smartphone sales surpassed Apple’s consistently for June and July 2017, making the Chinese manufacturer the world’s second largest smartphone brand next to Samsung.
HE Huawei Mate 10, the Chinese OEM’s big-screen flagship, is scheduled to be announced on October 16. Understandably, Huawei has begun teasing its upcoming smartphone — and it’s doing so at the expense of Korean rival Samsung.
F you look at the quarterly rankings of smartphone vendors from the first quarter of 2016 to the second three months of this year, you’ll get bored because you’ll be looking at the same companies again and again. Not the second quarter of 2017.
ACT: 20 percent of mobile phones shipped internationally are fake. And more than 50 percent of those may have come from China alone, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. But whose handsets did counterfeit-phone makers in China copy the most in the first half of 2017? Apple perhaps? Well, we thought wrong.
EADS-UP, discerning shoppers: There is a new budget smartphone in town to challenge the likes of the Cherry Mobile Flare 5, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime, and the Vivo Y53. Except this one is more likely to outlast the competition, what with its 3,000mAh battery, more than what most other brands provide.
ASED on the messages and comments we have received, many of you believe that Huawei started the whole “three cameras on a phone” concept. But really, the manufacturers you should be looking at are LG and HTC, when in 2011, they debuted the Optimus 3D and the Evo 3D, respectively.
OVE over, Apple. Samsung is taking back what it lost in the last quarter of 2016. And it has the numbers, courtesy of market-research company IDC, to back it up.
O say that the Philippines’ smartphone scene is exciting is an understatement, as it turns out there were three preorder periods announced the past week. ASUS Philippines started accepting reservations for the ZenFone 3 Zoom March 27th. It was announced that preorder for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will begin April 17 and end April 29. And the latest to join the fray is Huawei Philippines.
WO and a half months after going on sale in the Philippines, the Huawei GR5 2017 (click for complete specs) has become P2,000 (roughly $40) cheaper. From P13,990 ($279), the smartphone now costs only P11,990 ($239).
PPARENTLY, Huawei isn’t done with the P10 lineup, as the Shenzhen-headquartered OEM unveiled a new addition to its signature smartphone series. But before you get any ideas, we’re talking about a well-priced offering — about half the cost of the P10 — that cuts a few corners in the Huawei P10 Lite (click for complete specs).
XOMARK’s verdict is in. The site, which has become the benchmark for camera and lens-image testing, has posted its review of the Huawei P10’s (click for complete specs) dual cameras. And it’s good news for the collaboration between China’s Huawei and Germany’s Leica.
HE next iPhone and Galaxy S flagship won’t make the trip to Barcelona (okay, the latter, in its pre-production form, might), but this year’s Mobile World Congress [MWC] still has some highlights, two of which were announced today.
T ticks all the right boxes for us. It looks good, and it’s outfitted with top-of-the-line specs. Meet the recently unveiled Honor V9 (click for complete specs), the highest-end smartphone of Huawei’s sub-brand.
O you think 6GB of RAM is not enough for your smartphone? How does 8GB sound to you? You might just meet your match with the Huawei P10 Plus, which is expected to debut at MWC 2017 in Barcelona.
UAWEI will launch a new phone under its Honor sub-brand prior to Mobile World Congress 2017, a weeklong event that will gather many of the biggest names in the business — Samsung and LG, to name but two.
ON’T look now, but a document that supposedly shows the prices and some specs of the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus was sent to international handset-focused site PhoneArena. This development comes two weeks after press renders of the successors to the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus appeared on China’s Weibo social-networking service.
O on, admit it: You want your next smartphone packed with bleeding-edge tech like the most current iPhones and Galaxy handsets — and for those in the know, the Huawei Mate 9, which is supposed to get better the longer you use it.
