In its official Twitter account, Huawei recently posted a teaser of perhaps one of the many devices that it will introduce during its grand launch event on October 16. While no specific hardware particulars were mentioned, the teaser pointed out to what is seemingly a third variant of the Mate 20 that’s focused on gaming and performance,  as the hashtag says, it may be called the Mate 20X. The teaser showed two points. Cooler – which means that the upcoming device will either have a dedicated cooling module that boosts airflow, or it could have a cooling system that’s unique to it, allowing the device to sustain its performance through long hours of gaming. Next point, Longer Gaming – which means that the device may boast AI-powered battery management to prolong battery life, or just basically a larger than usual power pack. 5,000mAh? we’ll see. In any case, there’s just…

Ever wanted to take some beautiful night shots with your Huawei Nova 3? well, Huawei has recently rolled out an update to the device, which basically improves the Super Night Mode. Now, Super Night Mode lets you take a  long exposure shot without the need for a tripod! this gives you night photos which are way better than what you’d get from just doing a point and shoot, similar to what the P20 and P20 Pro can do. The Huawei Nova 3 houses dual cameras on both the front and the rear, 16MP + 20MP and 24MP + 2MP respectively.  It also boasts other features such as AI Scene Detection. The device also sports 6.3-inch FHD+ 19.5:9 display, and is powered by the Kirin 970 processor, along with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The Huawei Nova 3 currently retails for PhP25,990.

Ahead of its launch, a lot of information about the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 Pro has surfaced online. The latest one, an alleged promotional video which shows the device in its full glory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeJbHkrcIYE If anything, the video confirms much of what is generally known about the upcoming smartphone – a smaller water drop style notch, and three cameras at the back, arranged in a square section. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is expected to be powered by the new Kirin 980 processor with enhanced AI capabilities, along with 8GB of RAM, and a whopping 512GB of storage. Source

IDC report is finally out, and while it is important to note of the top mobile brands in terms of smartphone shipments, it is equally vital to look at what helped to make this happen. If you take a look at the chart that IDC posted last October 1, ultra low-end and low-end devices dominate the price band spectrum of the industry. A year later, you would notice a significant shift in the spectrum where ultra low-end decreased, while both low-end and mid-range increased. Now, why are more Filipinos able to buy mid-range smartphones this year than last year? To understand this, we had to ask an investments and economics expert, Migs Lopez of Critical Index. Migs shared with us that the changes we are seeing this year in the smartphone consumer landscape have something to do with Filipinos’ purchasing power, TRAIN law, and inflation. TRAIN Law Effect The Filipino…

Huawei’s new Kirin 980 is set to power the upcoming Mate devices. And with only some time before the launch, it’s quite interesting to find out what makes this new chip so special, and what innovations does it bring to the table. World’s First 7-nanometer (7nm) Mobile Processor The Kirin 980 is the world’s first Mobile CPU that’s built on the 7nm process. Huawei actually took 3 years to figure out a way of mass-producing it, given that each contain 6.9 billion transistors. As far as results are concerned, this new chip is 20% faster than the previous generation, and yet, is 40% more efficient. World’s First Cortex Based CPU The Kirin 980 has been fitted with the new Cortex A76 and Mali G76 processors – the first in the world. The A76 cores are able to bump up performance by 75% compared to the Kirin 970, which ensures that…

Testament to its prowess in Mobile Photography, Huawei’s current flagship, the P20 Pro still ranks first in DxOMark mobile. Since its launch in April, the unit has received raved reviews from numerous blogs and news outlets, highlighting its superb imaging capabilities. This is all thanks to its Leica Triple Camera system – an industry-first that utilizes a combination of a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor, and a third 8MP telephoto sensor to capture images with stunning clarity and detail. It’s also capable of 3x Optical Zoom, 5x Hybrid Zoom, and AI Stabilization, which allows you to take stunning night shots even without a tripod! The Huawei P20 Pro draws its power from the Kirin 970 chip, backed by AI-capabilities.  It has a gorgeous 6.1-inch FHD+ OLED display, along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It runs on EMUI 8.1 on top of Android Oreo, and houses a…

The mid-range segment is perhaps the most saturated in the smartphone market. Just about every manufacturer is battling it out with phones that offer decent specs and more and more features at very competitive prices. Today, we’re taking a look at two such devices – the OPPO F9 and the Huawei Nova 3i. Both are fairly new to the market. Both have dual rear cameras, and are being marketed for their imaging prowess. Oh, and they’re priced pretty close too. The F9 at PhP17,990, and the Nova 3i at PhP15,990. Camera Both devices are equipped with dual rear cameras – a 16MP primary, and a 2MP secondary, the latter used for adding the depth of field effect to your photos. Both are also fitted with AI Scene Detection that enables the camera to optimize itself depending on your subject. Up front, the OPPO uses a single 25MP sensor, while the…

Huawei recently announced GPU Turbo and if it seems at first that the “turbo” designation means blazingly fast performance we can’t blame you. but, you’ll have to temper those expectations for now.   The touted new bump in performance did not show a considerable  boost in performance in the limited trial that was done. Still, Huawei is riding this tech development and is now upping the ante with “CPU Turbo” – which we’ll find in  the Kirin 970-powered Honor Note 10. Switching on  CPU Turbo is said to raise the clock speeds  and free up RAM. Like anything that needs some overclocking or boosting, it needs a way to keep temperatures to rise –  which is where “The Nine” – the Honor Note 10s featured cooling system. We all know that having a cooling system enables overclocking capabilities  but how about the power drain? Well, there’s a massive 5,000mAh battery which means power…

While Huawei is more known for its mid and high en d devices, the company also has its eyes set on covering the lower end of the spectrum, with phones like the Y6 (2018), aiming to bring the brand’s expertise in smartphone photography to a broader audience. The question is, have they succeeded in doing so? let’s find out in this full review. Design and Build Quality At first glance, the Y6 (2018) looks very similar to the Nova 2 Lite. Everything from the display, the body, the matte finish at the back, and the branding, it seems as if it’s a toned-down version of it. Thanks to its slim profile, the phone is quite easy to hold and operate with one hand. Up front, you get a 5.7-inch display with HD+ resolution, which is kind of expected for a device at this price point. As expected, the screen isn’t…

Huawei has been on a roll with their new products, and with each one bearing excellent quality, innovative technology, and cutting edge design, it’s no wonder, the brand has been steadily increasing its consumer base in many regions. As proof of this feat, research firms IDC, Strategy Analytics and Canalys confirmed that Huawei has achieved rank 2 in the global smartphone market, and for the first time, surpassing another giant, Apple for an entire quarter. IDC IDC’s recent global quarterly monitoring report states that Huawei garnered a market share of 15.8%, surpassing Apple by 3.7% in a whole quarter for the first time. Huawei also continues to lead the Chinese smartphone market with a record-high market share of 27.0% in Q2 of 2018. In the first half of this quarter.The P20 and P20 Pro was in strong demand for the $600 to $800 price segment, which in turn, helped Huawei…

The successor to the very famous Huawei Nova 2i, the Nova 3i has been well-anticipated that the company actually sold 20,000 units during its launch last July 28. Come to think of it, it’s not that hard to see why consumers are loving this device, as it offers some nifty upgrades over its predecessor, apart from its premium design. The Nova 3i resembles a lot of the Huawei P20 Lite, thanks to its glossy finish, and how the branding is placed. I know – Smudge Magnet, but we can’t take away that the device looks more premium. One of the notable upgrades is the new Kirin 710 processor, which should offer improved performance and efficiency over the 2i’s Kirin 659. The Nova 3i has a 6.3-inch display with FHD+ resolution, and comes with 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It also has dual cameras at the front and rear,…

We know you’ve been waiting for them, and now, they’re finally here. After weeks of teasing them on the company’s Facebook Page, Huawei has finally launched its newest dynamic duo for the Philippine market, and the newest stars of the Nova lineup – Meet the Nova 3 and Nova 3i! The Nova 3 is a device that sports an elegant and premium design combined with flagship-grade hardware. It has a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the bonnet is a Kirin 970 octa-core processor with AI capabilities, the same chip on the P20 and P20 Pro. It has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, expandable with a microSD card. For optics, the device has a 16MP RGB sensor coupled with a 24MP Monochrome sensor, minus the Leica branding. Up front is a combination of a 24MP and a 2MP camera, the latter used for…

Huawei Nova 2i is one of the best selling smartphones of Huawei in the Philippines to date. It is for this very reason that raised the interest of the company to launch its next iteration in the Philippines, the Nova 3i. While the Nova 3 exists with its minor kin, Nova 3i is both interesting and powerful in its own right. Positioned for the hip and millennial, all the features we managed to test for more than 2 weeks are confirmed to not alienate its intended market. This phone isn’t just for the stylish and people oozing with fashionist vibe; it is also for those who wish to treasure and enjoy life. Build Nova 3i is a product adorned with beauty and designed by people, filled with a desire to bedazzle. The Iris Purple variant we’ve got slightly borrows its looks from Huawei P20 Twilight. It looks definitely smexy, but it’s hard…

A leaked photo has recently surfaced, and reveals what seems to be the full specification of Huawei’s upcoming Nova devices. One of them is the Nova 3i, which has also been seen locally in Standees next to Huawei kiosks, with James Reid as its celebrity endorser. According to the leak, both the Nova 3 and 3i bear a lot of resemblance to the Huawei P20 Lite, thanks to the similarly shaped notch. The Nova 3 runs on a flagship Kirin 970 along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the 3i houses the new Kirin 710, and comes in either 4GB/6GB of RAM, and 64GB/128GB of storage. As for cameras, both have four. The Nova 3 houses 24MP + 16MP dual rear shooters, while the Nova 3i has 16MP + 2MP. Both have 24MP + 2MP sensors up front, the second is presumably for adding the depth effect.…

Huawei has posted a teaser of an upcoming device, presumably to be launched here in the Philippines. And while the teaser doesn’t reveal much about it, there was one important hint – It’s a Nova device with four cameras, judging by the four rounded object shown in one part of the teaser. Now, that makes sense, as Huawei has also recently been teasing the new Nova 3, and thanks to a TENAA listing, much of the device’s specs are already quite known even before its official unveiling on July 18. The Nova 3 bears a striking resemblance to the Huawei P20 Lite with its glossy rear panel and dual rear cameras. There’s also that notch upfront. It has a 6.3-inch display with FHD+ resolution, and runs on an octa-core CPU (possibly the Kirin 710), along with 6GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage. At the back of is…

While flipping the pages of a book I got during my recent trip to China, a bookmark that shows Huawei’s Mission and Vision fell off.  It says, “Bring digital to every person, home, and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world.” It dawned on me that all the innovations and successes Huawei have at the moment mirror the fulfillment of their mission and vision. Who is Huawei? Huawei is both a dreamer and a doer. Huawei has this quest to pave roads to a better future, and this is clearly identifiable to the brand they are carrying. They pioneer things, and they don’t just simply try to be a trailblazer for the heck of being called one; they pioneer things because they want to play a vital role in everyone’s future…. in everyone’s digital future. As simple as it sounds – “bring digital to every person” – Huawei has tremendously influenced…

I’ve been to China last week to visit Huawei’s Headquarters and their university. As someone who has been using their devices (from smartphone to routers) for more than 10 years, I was not entirely aware of how the company has tremendously grown until I got exclusive access to their offices and “campuses”. From my perspective, Huawei puts high regard on innovation, quality assurance, and customer centricity. With innovation as their foundation,  they have successfully made and launched devices that impressed consumers, including us. We witnessed how they prioritize quality with the equipment they use and the amount of time they devote to researching and testing the units before putting everything into production. More than anything else, innovation and quality assurance are just by-products of their focus on customer centricity. But what is customer centricity for Huawei? For Huawei, customer centricity is not just about bowing and scraping to customers, it means…
