Huawei made a gigantic new phone for Note 7 widowers

Galaxy Note 7 alternatives
Before it began its second career as a spontaneous handwarmer, the Galaxy Note 7 was actually quite a good phone. The combination of big display, powerful graphics and a well-skinned version of Android had a lot of fans, and Samsung's total recall has left a big gap in the market. That's what Huawei, a big Chinese cellphone manufacturer, is hoping to fill with the release of the Mate 9. It's a 5.9-inch behemoth with specs to match the big body and a skinned version of Android on top. It might be from a company you've never heard of, but it's also the closest thing you're going to get to a Note 7 right now.

There’s an Android phone coming out that will cost $1,300

Huawei Mate 9 Specs

Flagship smartphones are insanely expensive these days. Consider this: today, our deals team included a brand new 2016 Samsung HDTV model with a curved 49-inch display in their roundup of Amazon's best daily deals. Curved screens are the latest and greatest tech Samsung is touting in its TV lineup, and a 49-inch display is a great size. This model also smart features so it can run all of your favorite apps like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. Right now, this great TV from the world's top TV brand is on sale for $510 — which is just over half of what Apple charges for a high-end iPhone 7 Plus.

But if you think the iPhone 7 Plus is expensive, you haven't seen anything yet.

Leica and Huawei express their love for each other with a joint research lab

header-background Before the iPhone 7 made dual lenses cool… no, scratch that, Huawei and Leica made it cool first (and plenty others made it dorky). The result of their collaboration, the P9, has sold well enough that the two companies are taking their relationship to the next level — moving in together. In a joint research facility in Germany, that is. Read More

Google tipped to launch new 7-inch Android tablet this year

Google Nexus 2016 Huawei Tablet
Google is preparing to launch quite a few new devices at some point in the coming weeks, including a couple of Nexus-like smartphones made by HTC that will have Pixel branding, an exciting first-gen Daydream VR headset, and a new 4K Chromecast according to a recent report. But it looks like Google hasn’t given up its tablet dreams yet. A fresh leak from a trustworthy source says that Google is about to bring to market a Huawei tablet that will probably not be included in the Nexus family.

Huawei is selling a phone with the Galaxy S7’s specs for $400

Huawei Honor 8
Huawei is a Chinese phone manufacturer notorious for selling off-contract Android phones for dirt cheap. With the latest addition to the family, the Honor 8, the tune is exactly the same -- and that's a seriously good thing. The Honor 8 isn't technically Huawei's flagship phone, but you wouldn't know it from a glance at the spec sheet. It's a glass-backed phone that reminds me of the Nexus 4, with a 5.2-inch, full HD screen. Buried in the glass back is a dual-camera system, which yes, is the same thing rumored for the upcoming iPhone 7. Guess Huawei got there first.

China’s latest smartphone might be a Note 7 killer

Huawei Note 8 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 7
We've seen all kinds of leaks indicating the Galaxy Note 7 is going to be a pretty fantastic smartphone. But all Samsung's bells and whistles will guaranteeably cost you serious money, money that could be better spent on beer. That's where China comes in. Huawei, a telecoms giant in China, has been making phones with flagship specs for way less money for a while, and the newest honor Note 8 could make the Galaxy Note 7 dead on arrival.

That time Huawei took a photo with $4,500 camera but said it was a $475 phone

Huawei P9 Camera Controversy
Smartphone cameras today are so advanced that they’re ready to give professional cameras a run for their money. For a fraction of the cost of a pro setup, your iPhone can take gorgeous pictures and videos, and Apple has an entire “shot on iPhone” marketing campaign to drive home that point. Phones from the competition offer similar, or even better camera experiences, with Galaxy S7, HTC 10, and LG G5’s cameras having been praised in reviews. With all that in mind, it’s baffling to see Huawei try to fool customers into thinking that a picture taken by a $4,500 dedicated camera setup was actually snapped on a $475 phone. Yes, Huawei denies any wrongdoing, but what else can it say after having been caught red-handed?

Google’s two biggest partners are both working toward ditching Android

Android Vs iOS
Today, Google's Android platform and Apple's iOS platform dominate the mobile landscape. It's difficult to imagine that ever changing considering how far behind other platforms are at this point, but people said the same thing more than a decade ago when operating systems like Symbian and Windows Mobile ruled the world. Things change and what goes up must come down. What's interesting, however, is that major Android vendors are already starting to prepare for life after Android despite the platform's strong position at the moment.
