  1. Hi all. So over the weekend this happened. I bid farewell to my exactly a year old iPhone 8 Plus. My circles.life sim card survived apparently. But having not back up my iCloud for awhile.... there goes everything else inside. Including contacts. Too heartbroken to going back to being an Apple user, though no fault of Apple's, I bite the bullet and went for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. My first android in years. No research done on this phone except constantly impressed by @steveluv's vacation pictures taken by the Huawei. Huawei users fall in here! What's good about this phone, tips and tricks to use the camera correctly, reasonably priced tempered glass for the curved screen, solid phone casing etc. Please share with a total noob here!

(Photo from screenshot of Huawei launch event) CHENG TING-FANG, Nikkei Asia chief tech correspondentSeptember 6, 2022 15:51 JSTUpdated on September 6, 2022 17:24 JST TAIPEI -- Huawei Technologies has included satellite communications capabilities in its latest flagship smartphone as the Chinese tech conglomerate attempts to get around U.S. restrictions on its access to 5G wireless technologies. The Mate 50 series will allow users to send short messages and map out routes using the BeiDou navigation satellite system, the Chinese version of the more widely used Global Positioning System developed by the U.S. Air Force. Huawei is the first major smartphone maker to roll out such a feature, beating out market leaders like Apple, which is also working on satellite connectivity. The BeiDou network achieved worldwide coverage in 2020, a major milestone in Beijing's efforts to create its own system for future communications, navigation and scientific research that does not rely on GPS or other global navigation systems, which include Russia's GLONASS, the European Union's Galileo and the IRNSS program developed by India. "It will be the world's first smartphone to support message links with the BeiDou navigation satellite network. We are set to open a new commercial era of the mass use of such satellite technologies," said Richard Yu, Huawei's executive director and CEO of its consumer business group. Huawei, which has been operating under a U.S. crackdown since 2018, still has no access to the type of premium 5G mobile chips that are already standard in flagship phones from Apple, Samsung and Xiaomi. Its smartphone shipments declined to just 37.5 million units for all of 2021, from 240.6 million in 2019, when it was the world's second-largest handset maker, after Samsung, according to IDC data. The Chinese tech champion was forced to sell its budget phone line Honor in late 2020. The former unit has been betting big on global expansion, recently launching a series of smartphones, tablets and laptop computers during the IFA Berlin electronics fair. Honor also pledged to bring its premium foldable phone to Europe by early 2023. Satellite communications have a long history in military and disaster management applications, as they can operate in remote areas such as deserts, jungles and open oceans that lack conventional communication or location services. Wireless mobile internet, by comparison, relies on nearby base stations for data transfers and phone calls. Huawei's latest phone will come with Qualcomm's 4G version of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile chipset. Instead of Google's Android operating system, which the company can no longer use due to U.S. restrictions, the Mate 50 will come with Huawei's own Harmony OS. The company has also developed its own cutting-edge materials to a more shatter-proof glass cover make the glass cover of the phones more drop- and-crash resistant. Dubbed "Kunlun glass, Huawei developed the material an alterative to Corning's Gorilla glass. Huawei's Yu said the Mate 50 models also have more advanced cameras and are equipped with smart text-to-voice features that allow users to answer phone calls by typing, as well as with instant interpretation functions. Jeff Pu, an analyst with Haitong International Securities, said Huawei used a chip from developer CETC Acoustic-Optic-Electronic Technology to support satellite communications features. He said Huawei's move could open a new frontier in the commercial use of such technologies in electronics devices. "Currently, only Chinese chip developers are allowed to design chips that link to China's BeiDou. It's a business unique to Chinese companies," Pu said. But Huawei's breakthrough does not necessarily mean that users will be sending messages or making calls via satellite all the time, he added. "That could consume a lot of battery power and could be very expensive." Joey Yen, an analyst with IDC, told Nikkei Asia that Huawei has potentially opened up a new front in the global war for tech dominance. "The tech battleground has further advanced from 5G and AI to space and navigation satellite technologies."
  3. Huawei has just unveiled the Seres SF5 - an electrified crossover, which will be sold at Huawei’s flagship stores in China. OK to be precise, the vehicle is not designed entirely by Huawei as it’s actually an updated version of the existing SF5 crossover, which made its original debut two years ago in Shanghai. Huawei says it has helped automotive company Seres with the development of the powertrain, which consists of a 1.5-liter gas engine and two electric motors. The combined output of the system is reportedly about 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts), which should be enough for a 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) acceleration in just 4.7 seconds. More importantly, Huawei promises the plug-in hybrid can travel up to 112 miles (180 kilometers) on purely electric energy, though it’s important to note that this is measured by China’s somewhat generous test cycle. With the battery fully charged and the fuel tank full, the SF5 should be capable of a range of over 621 miles (1,000 km) in “extended range mode for long distance travelers.” Huawei’s input is probably more visible inside the cabin where there’s a large tablet-style screen for the infotainment system. The company says it has paid special attention to the crossover’s audio system, which consists of 11 sound units to deliver “opera-like sound quality.” Another interesting feature of the SF5 is the vehicle-to-vehicle charging function, which can power other vehicles or external devices such as induction cookers, stereos, and other camping equipment. "This exciting announcement sets a precedent for both the consumer electronics industry and the new energy vehicle industry,” Richard Yu, Executive Director at Huawei, commented. “In the future, we will not only provide leading smart car solutions to help partners build better intelligent vehicles, but also help them sell those vehicles through our retail network across China." Speaking of China, Huawei is already accepting orders for the SF5 in the People’s Republic with prices starting at 246,800 RMB (~S$50K at the current exchange rates) for the 4WD model and 216,800 RMB ($44K) for the 2WD variant.
  4. https://www.techspot.com/news/88304-xiaomi-designated-communist-chinese-military-company-us-government.html Xiaomi designated a 'Communist Chinese military company' by U.S. government U.S. investors could be forced to divest in November By Rob Thubron on January 15, 2021, 8:36 AM 18 comments What just happened? As Donald Trump approaches the end of his term, the president is putting the pressure on a Chinese giant—but this time, it's not Huawei. The outgoing administration has designated Xiaomi, the world's third best-selling phone maker, a 'Communist Chinese military company,' adding it to a blacklist that could force U.S. investors to divest. As noted by Reuters, a 1999 law requires the Defense Department to compile a catalog of companies owned or controlled by the People's Liberation Army. The Pentagon has added 35 companies so far, including chipmaker SMIC. Huawei is on the list, too, due to its telecoms infrastructure business that is worrying some governments. Xiaomi recently announced the Mi 11, its latest smartphone Both Huawei and SMIC are also part of the US Commerce Department's 'entity list', which prevents American organizations from exporting to the blacklisted companies without a government license. Hence the lack of Google Apps and U.S. hardware in the latest Huawei phones. The newly added companies will be subject to an investment ban that forces American investors to divest their holdings on November 11, 2021—assuming the Biden administration doesn't overturn the order. Xiaomi, which was accused of recording users' incognito web browsing last year, currently takes the third-largest share of the global smartphone market, sitting behind number one Samsung and second-place Huawei, according to IDC. Xiaomi, in a statement to The Verge, said that it is "operating in compliance with the relevant laws and regulations of jurisdictions where it conducts its businesses." The spokesperson contends that Xiaomi "is not owned, controlled or affiliated with the Chinese military, and is not a 'Communist Chinese Military Company' defined under the NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act]." The company is reviewing the consequences of the designation before taking action.

  6. Huawei CFO arrested in Canada for violating US sanctions on Iran WASHINGTON: Canada has arrested Huawei's global chief financial officer in Vancouver, where she is facing extradition to the United States on suspicion she violated US sanctions against Iran, the Globe and Mail newspaper reported on Wednesday (Dec 6). Meng Wanzhou, who is one of the vice chairs on the Chinese technology company's board and the daughter of company founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested on Dec 1 and a court hearing has been set for Friday, a Canadian Justice Department spokesman said, according to the Globe and Mail. Representatives of Huawei, one of the world's largest makers of telecommunications network equipment, could not immediately be reached for comment by Reuters. Officials for the Canadian and US Justice Departments did not immediately respond to a request for comment. US authorities have been probing Huawei since at least 2016 for allegedly shipping US-origin products to Iran and other countries in violation of US export and sanctions laws, sources told Reuters in April. China protests arrest of Huawei CFO in Canada, urges release: Embassy OTTAWA: Beijing on Wednesday (Dec 6) protested the arrest in Canada of Chinese national Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of global telecommunications giant Huawei, and urged her immediate release as she faces extradition to the United States. "At the request of the US side, the Canadian side arrested a Chinese citizen not violating any American or Canadian law," a statement from the Chinese embassy in Canada said. "The Chinese side firmly opposes and strongly protests over such kind of actions which seriously harmed the human rights of the victim. "The Chinese side has lodged stern representations with the US and Canadian side, and urged them to immediately correct the wrongdoing and restore the personal freedom of Ms Meng Wanzhou." The statement added the embassy was closely following developments in the case and would "take all measures to resolutely protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens." Meng was arrested in Vancouver on Dec 1, according to Canadian authorities. Her detention comes after US authorities opened an investigation into suspected violations of Iran sanctions by Huawei, one of the world's largest telecommunications equipment and services providers.

  8. source: https://www.tomsguide.com/news/joker-malware-has-infected-500000-huawei-phones-what-you-need-to-know 10 different Huawei apps had the malware Security researchers have found that over half a million Huawei smartphones have been infected with the Joker malware. The Joker malware has been doing the rounds on Google Play for a while, and signs up the infected phone to premium mobile subscriptions. But this is the first time it’s been spotted on Huawei devices (via BleepingComputer). The malware was discovered by researchers from Russian antivirus firm Doctor Web, hidden inside 10 harmless-looking apps within Huawei’s AppGallery. Normally, Joker malware spreads through Google Play, but researchers have now realized the people behind it appear to have expanded their efforts to alternate Android app stores. What’s more, Joker could also steal contact lists and text messages, in order to help itself spread amongst your friends. The malware was first disclosed after it made its way to Google Play back in 2019. Google has booted a couple dozen apps from Google Play in the time since, but the people behind these scam apps now appear to be taking it further afield. Doctor Web researchers noted that in this instance, the maximum number of services Joker will subscribe a user to is five. That's a lot, and it was noted that the crooks behind the scenes could increase that number whenever they liked. The apps in question include a virtual keyboard, messaging apps, sticker collections, a game, and more. Many of the offending apps came from the same developer, and fortunately Huawei has removed them all from AppGallery now — though not before they were downloaded over half a million times. Unfortunately, not having a Huawei phone doesn’t mean you’re safe. Researchers noted that the same modules downloaded by infected apps in AppGallery were also present in apps on Google Play. A full list of indicators of compromise is available here, if you want to check for yourself. So sticking to Google’s own app store doesn’t guarantee safety; be careful what you download, folks, no matter where you get those apps from.
  9. https://www.forbes.com/sites/zakdoffman/2019/11/11/huawei-has-defied-trumps-blacklist-so-what-happens-now/#1f4d92d17336 Huawei Has Defied Trump’s Blacklist: So What Happens Now? Zak Doffman Contributor, Cybersecurity Back in May, when U.S. President Trump stripped Huawei of its U.S. supply chain, the company’s short to medium term future looked bleak. The blacklist was aimed at 5G networking equipment, but it was Huawei’s consumer goods business that seemed to be hit hardest. Huawei execs forecast billions in lost revenue as CEO Ren Zhengfei talked survival: “It's good enough for us to just survive,” he told Bloomberg in May, “you can come back to interview us in two or three years and see if we still exist.” Fast forward six months, though, and it’s all change. “Huawei defies the odds to lead the global telecoms market after 180 days on the U.S. trade blacklist,” announced a South China Morning Post headline on November 8. “Performance,” it reported, “that has defied early predictions that it would stumble under the U.S. trade ban.” And this isn’t a slant on the truth—with this story, there are no rose-tinted spectacles in sight. Far from losing the hard-fought number two slot for global smartphone sales it won from Apple last year, Huawei has continued to grow, leaving Apple further behind and chasing down Samsung for the global crown. This year, the blacklisted company has shipped 200 million smartphones 64 days faster than it managed in 2018—pre-blacklist. Huawei targeted 2020 as the year it would overtake Samsung. It remains on course to do exactly that. Samsung is no slouch—according to Canalys it posted annualised growth of 11% in the third quarter this year—Huawei, though, hit 33%. So all good on the consumer front, but what about sales of 5G networking equipment. Well, despite the blacklist, Huawei still leads the world. In the first quarter of 2019, despite a relentless U.S. campaign against the company, Huawei’s market share was 28%. During the following quarter in which the blacklist was put in place, this increased to 29%. Second-placed Nokia remained a distance behind, at around 16%. Worse for the U.S., Reuters reported that half of Huawei’s 65+ 5G contracts are in Europe—the primary international battleground between Washington politicians and Shenzhen execs. A recent EU report warned of the dangers associated with a dominant 5G player from an authoritarian regime. But the two key battlegrounds, Germany and the U.K., remain undecided and could still opt for Huawei. If that happens, it is likely that other markets around the world will follow suit. If key markets, especially the U.K., allow Huawei into their networks, it undermines the U.S. case considerably. So what went wrong with the U.S. campaign? In a word—China. Huawei’s domestic market has pulled hard enough to make all the difference. Huawei’s overall growth was strong, but its performance in China was exceptional—a 66% increase catapulting the company to a 42% market share. The company is chasing down an extraordinary 50% market share of the world’s largest smartphone market—a market that has been a recent nightmare for both Apple and Samsung as they struggle to compete. Huawei eased past the $100 billion revenue mark last year for the first time, after a decade of uninterrupted growth. Against the odds, it looks set to do the same this year. There are three allegations behind the U.S. campaign against Huawei. The first that the company will facilitate espionage or data theft at the behest of China’s intelligence agencies if asked. The second that the company receives state subsidies at the expense of non-Chinese competitors. And the third that its technologies have been used to help suppress China’s ethnic minorities, most notably the Uighurs in Xinjiang. Underpinning Huawei’s defense against U.S. claims has been a carefully orchestrated media campaign that was underway before the sanctions were in place. Back in February, at the flagship Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, Huawei hit back at the U.S. in front of its industry peers. The company’s chairman Guo Ping used a keynote speech to remind the world about the cybersecurity controversies emanating from the U.S. entered around the Edward Snowden revelations. As I wrote at the time, the approach has “all the hallmarks of a carefully orchestrated line of defense that has been in the works for some time—and it’s a very good one.” In short, that campaign hasn’t stopped since. We have seen a new transparency from Shenzhen, open access to the once reclusive CEO, an open-door policy at HQ, a growing team of Western media and PR professionals drafted in to shape the messages and manage the media. And those messages have focused on innovation, investment, legacy, history and performance. All underpinned by trust, loyalty and consistent denials of any security wrongdoing. Behind all this has been a darker message, though. Essentially Huawei is offering the world a choice. Take the U.S. line, swallow its tech dominance through the likes of Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and Qualcomm. Or push back, don’t take it all at face value, and support this leading non-U.S. player as it carves out a new way. The messaging around a replacement for Android itself or a replacement for Google Mobile Services aligns with this. The world’s consumers don’t want to move from Google, but in truth no company has offered them a viable alternative in a decade. Huawei has ridden out the storm. Between its 5G contracts and its smartphone market position it is well protected for another 12-18 months, with perhaps another 10% market share in China on offer to offset any slowing non-China sales. Beyond that, there are one of two paths open to the company. Either Google (and the others) will be returned under Commerce Department licenses, in which case the company will be even stronger, even more of a threat to its competition. Or the blacklist will hold, in which case the company will invest in Huawei Mobile Services and in an app ecosystem to wean millions to its new third way. Unless there is a significant change in the U.S. stance, this analysis on Huawei will continue back and forth. And the more the company is seen to ride out its sanctions, the more likely the U.S. will trade away more restrictions for trade talk benefits while they still carry some weight. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, U.S. tech giants continue to lobby for a return to business as usual. What is certain, is that there was no expectation that Huawei would field the first six months of its blacklist as well as it has. For the U.S. to campaign this strongly against a commercial enterprise is unprecedented—the result of that campaign, though, is arguably even more so.
  10. Huawei P30 Pro ‘periscope’ zoom camera confirmed as executive talks enhanced low-light Ben Schoon - Mar. 5th 2019 7:01 am PT @NexusBen In just a few short weeks, Huawei will officially unveil its new flagship, the Huawei P30 Pro. Today, the company’s VP of Global Marketing is confirming some details about the device, including the periscope zoom camera the Huawei P30 Pro will be packing. Last year’s Huawei P20 Pro did a lot to help establish Huawei as a powerful player in the smartphone camera market, and that prowess continues on. For its sequel, Huawei isn’t pulling its punches. Speaking to Android Central, Huawei’s Clement Wong confirmed a couple of long-standing rumors about the Huawei P30 Pro – it’s going to have a super-zoom sensor, and it’ll have better low-light. Looking first at the new zoom camera, Wong describes it as a “periscope-style” zoom camera that will be the third sensor on the Huawei P30 Pro. He explained that it would have “super-zoom” capabilities, but didn’t confirm the level it would hit. Previous Huawei devices achieved 5x zoom using a hybrid system, and rumors currently point to a 10x zoom from the sensor. What would that 10x zoom be capable of? It’ll probably produce some great shots, and early samples on Chinese social media show off something truly amazing. Wong says that the picture below was captured on the P30 Pro, sneakily confirming its quad-camera setup, and clearly showing details of the lunar surface. He says this shot was taken handheld without any post-editing. Confirmed Huawei P30 Pro zoom camera sample Further, Wong explains that the Huawei P30 Pro will also offer enhanced low-light capabilities alongside the strong zoom option. Specifics weren’t mentioned, sadly, but the company sees its next upgrade as a huge jump over what was offered on the already impressive P20 Pro. He also suggested that hardware would be involved, with the new night mode not solely relying on software like the company’s competition. To end, Wong said that the Huawei P30 Pro will use “revolutionary technology to rewrite rules of photography.” That’s a very bold claim, and we’ll have to wait until March 26th to see how it pans out. https://9to5google.com/2019/03/05/huawei-p30-pro-zoom-camera/
  11. Huawei & China Mobile enable 5G network on Mount Everest Source: https://mothership.sg/2020/05/huawei-mount-everest/ Mount Everest might no longer be a remote spot. Whether you like it or not, mountaineers can remain connected with the rest of the world in the near future. 5G network made available on Mount Everest China Mobile and Huawei have mounted a 5G base station on Mount Everest recently at the altitude of 6,500 metres above sea-level. Two other base stations have also been built at the Mount Everest Base Camp at the altitude of 5,300 metres and in the Transition Camp at 5,800 metres. With these base stations, the two Chinese telecom giants will be able to run their dual Gigabit network on Mount Everest. Network specialists will also be stationed in the regions at an altitude of 5,300 metres 24/7 to ensure smooth network operations, according to Huawei. Huawei claims to be able to support a highly reliable and fast network with download speeds of more than 1.66 Gbps and upload speeds which top 215 Mbps. That means sending and receiving videos as well as live streaming on Mount Everest will soon be possible. Besides communication services, the 5G network will also enable a re-measurement of Mount Everest since the first measurement was made 45 years ago. For now, the summit of Mount Everest is recorded to be 8,848 metres above sea level. Here's a timelapse of the construction at one of the base station:
  12. Huawei Pay launches in Singapore - here's how it works source: https://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/tech-news-huawei-pay-launch-singapore-unionpay-icbc Huawei today announced the official availability of Huawei Pay in Singapore. Users of Huawei's contactless, cashless payment method can enjoy launch benefits from now until 30 September 2020, which includes Huawei Points rewards and shopping cashback by registering and using their ICBC UnionPay credit cards on Huawei Pay. During this launch period, registering ICBC UnionPay cards on Huawei Pay will net a welcome gift of 10 Huawei Points (worth S$10). Users can also earn a cashback of up to S$20 by completing different tiers of transactions with no minimum spend on Huawei Pay during this period. Currently, Huawei Pay in Singapore only works with UnionPay credit cards issued by the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Singapore (ICBC Singapore). A Huawei spokesperson added that the company is working on collaborating with more financial institutions to be included on their payment method option. The payment method first appeared in China in 2016. Huawei Pay works on Near Field Communication (NFC) payment terminals in retail stores. To use Huawei Pay, users will need to add their bank cards to the Huawei Wallet app. Currently, Huawei Pay comes pre-installed on the Huawei P40 series smartphones that are launching on 4 April, but the payment method is also compatible with older Huawei and HONOR devices.
  13. https://www.gsmarena.com/new_leak_shows_huawei_p40_pro_premium_edition_will_join_p40_and_p40_pro_have_10x_zoom_camera-news-41083.php Leak: Huawei P40 Pro Premium will join P40 and P40 Pro, have 10x zoom camera Yesterday, we saw renders of the Huawei P40 Pro with four cameras on the back, a knock against rumors of a penta-camera setup. Today, new renders appear that show both four and five cameras – what’s going on? The second set of renders come from the reliable @evleaks. What seems to be happening is that Huawei will add three new phones to the flagship P-series instead of the usual two. Apple did it and so did Samsung, so why not Huawei? Having a closer look reveals something even more interesting – the premiere model (the one with five cameras), dubbed Huawei P40 Pro Premium Edition, has a periscope telephoto lens with 240mm focal length. Assuming that the main camera has a 24mm lens, that’s 10x optical zoom. Compare that to the four camera model, the Huawei P40 Pro, which has a 125mm periscope lens. That should be 5x optical zoom. Both versions have an 18mm ultra wide camera. The two additional cameras on the P40 Pro Premium are probably a dedicated macro cam and a 3D ToF sensor. The P40 Pro will have a ToF sensor, according to Teme, another leakster covering the P40 phones. Huawei P40 Pro Premium Edition • Huawei P40 Pro As for the base model, the Huawei P40, we already saw that it will have a 17mm ultra wide and a standard 80mm telephoto lens (so, 3x optical zoom). According to Teme, the Huawei P40 will have a 52MP main camera (1/1.3” sensor), 40MP cine camera (1/1.5” sensor) and an 8MP tele camera.

Now we have some more details regarding the camera which suggests the device may have 2 40 megapixel camera sensors with an additional 8-megapixel periscope zoom camera. https://twitter.com/RODENT950/status/1156545746679844864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1156545746679844864&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fmspoweruser.com%2Fthe-upcoming-huawei-mate-30-pro-reportedly-to-feature-revolutionary-camera-sensor%2F According to @Rodent950 the device will be equipped with: 40MP 1/1.5″ sensor with f/1.6 – f/1.4 aperture, RYYB pixel layout and Cine lens feature when taking video. 40MP 1/1.7″ 120° ultrawide lens with cine lens features. 8MP tele 5X zoom The news appears to be corroborated by reliable leaker Ice Universe who posted pictures of the sensors: https://twitter.com/UniverseIce/status/1157861481767002112?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1157861481767002112&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fmspoweruser.com%2Fthe-upcoming-huawei-mate-30-pro-reportedly-to-feature-revolutionary-camera-sensor%2F The Huawei Mate 30 is clearly intended to be a specs monster, and when it arrives it is expected to be powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 985 chipset with an integrated 5G modem, 55W fast-charging support and 10W wireless reverse charging. The device is expected to hit the market sometime this fall. Will the news convince any of our readers to jump ship from Samsung? Let us know below.

    Huawei Ark OS

    Interesting video but also sounds like a sales pitch for Huawei too
  16. There are a few things you can count on happening every National Day — an increase in people wearing red, Kit Chan’s Home being played on repeat, and number-themed discounts that correspond with Singapore’s age. And while we haven’t seen many of those discounts just yet (it is still July, after all), it looks like Huawei is getting the ball rolling this year — to commemorate the nation’s 54th birthday, the Chinese tech giant is selling their Y6 Pro 2019 smartphone at a discounted price of S$54. To put things in perspective, the entry-level smartphone normally retails for S$198, and if the calculators in our office are working correctly that’s a massive 73% discount. There are a few things to take note of, however. The promotion is only open to those aged 50 and above, and will only be valid this weekend from the 26th to 28th of July at all Huawei Concept Stores and selected retailers. If you aren’t familiar with the Y6 Pro 2019, here’s a quick breakdown — it measure at 6.09-inches (slightly larger than an iPhone XS Max), and comes with a 3,020 mAh battery and 13 megapixel rear camera. You’re not going to get P30 Pro-levels of performance out of it, but as far as calls, messaging and internet browsing go it should serve you well enough. And that’s all anyone above 50 really needs, isn’t it? If your parents or grandparents are in need of a new phone, this could very well be the best deal of the year. The promotion is while stocks last, so don’t be alarmed if you see an influx of seniors at Huawei stores this weekend.
  17. Gg liao We somewhat expected this But it came sooner. NEW YORK (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's Google has suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware and software products except those covered by open source licenses, a source close to the matter told Reuters on Sunday, in a blow to the Chinese technology company that the U.S. government has sought to blacklist around the world. Details of the specific services were still being discussed internally at Google, according to the source. Huawei attorneys are also studying the impact of the U.S. Commerce Department's actions, a Huawei spokesman said on Friday. Huawei was not immediately reachable for further comment. Representatives of the U.S. Commerce Department did not immediately have comment. Huawei Technologies Co Ltd will immediately lose access to updates to the Android operating system, and the next version of its smartphones outside of China will also lose access to popular applications and services including the Google Play Store and Gmail app. Huawei will continue to have access to the version of the Android operating system available through the open source license that is freely open to anyone who wishes to use it. But Google will stop providing any technical support and collaboration for Android and Google services to Huawei going forward, the source said. On Thursday the Trump administration officially added Huawei to a trade blacklist, immediately enacting restrictions that will make it extremely difficult for the technology giant to do business with U.S. companies.

  18. MOSCOW: China's Huawei, considered a security threat in the US, on Wednesday (Jun 5) signed a deal with Russian telecoms company MTS to develop a 5G network in the country over the next year, The agreement was signed on the sidelines of a meeting between Chinese leader Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. The deal will see "the development of 5G technologies and the pilot launch of fifth generation networks in 2019-2020", MTS said in a statement. Quoted in the statement, Huawei's Guo Ping, said he was "very happy" with the agreement "in an area of strategic importance like 5G". The Chinese telecom giant has been in turmoil since May, when the Trump administration banned US companies from selling high-tech equipment to Huawei over suspicions it is spying for Beijing. Experts say the US decision, to come into force within three months, threatens the survival of the company, which is highly dependent on US chips for its phones. Several companies have already distanced themselves from Huawei, including Google, whose Android system equips the vast majority of smartphones in the world. Huawei's reported potential involvement in Britain's 5G network has proved politically sensitive and Theresa May's government insists no decision has been made on the issue.

  19. Samsung and Huawei crush Apple's smartphone global market share It wasn't long ago that it looked like Apple would overtake Samsung to grab the biggest chunk of the global smartphone market. But now the company has been pushed into third place by Huawei. By Adrian Kingsley-Hughes for Hardware 2.0 | May 6, 2019 -- 07:32 GMT (15:32 GMT+08:00) It's funny how quickly things can change. Three months ago it seemed like Apple was on track to grab the global smartphone market share crown from Samsung, only to be shoved into third place by Chinese maker Huawei. What does this mean for Apple? Here's a chart that tracks the fight between Apple, Samsung, and Huawei over the past five quarters (courtesy of Bloomberg, based on IDC data): Well, on a totally business front, market share and revenue (and profits) are two separate things, and it might be foolish to focus too heavily on market share. Look at the dollars and cents, if we take the last quarter revenues and profits, it's clear that market share isn't everything. Samsung - Revenue: $44.7 billion | Profits: $5.3 billion Huawei - Revenue: $26.8 billion | Profits: $2.1 billion Apple - Revenue: $58 billion | Profits: $11.6 billion See how revenue and profits tell a different story. But this doesn't mean that Apple shouldn't be worried. The key to Apple's business is market share. The bigger and more robust market share it can create, the more loyal its customers are, and the more it can sell to them in terms of services and accessories that both help to drive profits and lock users deeper into the ecosystem. The more handsets Samsung and Huawei sell, the harder it becomes for Apple to expand its ecosystem. The companies may even be able to grab customers away from Apple – especially at the bottom end, where consumers are more sensitive to price – further eroding Apple's iOS ecosystem. Another thing to bear in mind is that the Huawei effect hits Apple at the core of a vulnerable market – China. Apple has been eyeing China for years now, seeing it as the perfect venue to cause a market explosion. But this effect hasn't materialized. And with increased pressure from the likes of Huawei, it now seems unlikely. And this could, in the longer term, become a much bigger problem, especially as iPhone sales are going soft all round. And if Huawei is right, and it is able to grab 50% of the smartphone market share in China, and take the global market share top spot away from Samsung by 2020, this could squeeze the iPhone even more. While it's never wise to try to predict the future in too much detail, it's hard to not come to the conclusion that Apple's woes are only just beginning, and that the company's focus on services and things like credit cards might be happening at just the right time.

  23. Saw this phone available in Whymobile website for only $450. Very attractive as its spec is similar to Samsung Note II but with bigger screen at 6.1" and 4000mAhr battery. Any bro/sis here using this phone now? Sorry I only want user feedback in terms of reliability and local service center experience. Professionally reviews I can read online and mostly have been very positive. Many TIA.
  24. Which one is a better option? One is slim but older model. The other is the newer model but bulkier with a cap.
