alexa on huawei's mate 9 won't listen unless you press


before we get ahead of ourselves, here's how the feature will work. starting today, the company will be rolling out updates over the air that push the huawei alexa app to mate 9 owners in the us (those in other countries will have to wait, although it's not clear how long). you'll have to install that update as well as amazon's own alexa app to use the tool, as that's where your amazon account information lives. then, whenever you want alexa to, say, help you order a new book or turn on your lights, you have to open the huawei alexa app and tap the round microphone button before speaking.in a statement, huawei described alexa as a "primarily voice-driven experience, ideal for people on the go," so the lack of hotword support is confusing, if not frustrating. it's not as if huawei w...






huawei: huawei to increase focus on mid-range smartphones


new delhi: smartphone maker huawei has plans to increase focus on devices in the price range of rs 10,000-20,000 in the indian market. "we have seen maximum growth in india taking place in rs 10,000-20,000 range. huawei will increase focus in this segment in india. having said that we will not compromise on quality and get into specification game. huawei will continue to focus on users' experience," huawei india consumer business group president peter zhai told pti. in 2016, huawei shipped 139 million smartphones globally and reported 44 per cent annual revenue growth in its consumer business group at usd 25.9 billion. according to sino-market research, huawei consumer business group had led the chinese market with 18.85 per cent market share in february 2017. "our exponential growth t...






huawei's fancy porsche design smartwatch isn't all that different


huawei's watch 2 is getting a limited edition run, courtesy of porsche design. while we've already strapped on the company's basic android wear sequel, the vip version was behind glass in a corner of one of many huawei booths here at mwc. (this company takes mobile world congress very seriously.) while there's no price, huawei's last collaboration with porsche design on its mate 9 smartphone resulted in a limited-run phone that was four times the price of the muggle version, which gives us some idea. (the standard huawei watch 2 will hit retail for roughly $350, so multiply that a few times.) however much it does eventually cost, you will get a thick leather strap with red stitching for that outlay, and a specially engraved ceramic chronograph bezel. other than that, it still looks a ...






huawei announces a 360-degree vr camera for smartphones


this might be huawei's first 360-degree camera, but it's definitely not insta360's first. it has other phone clip-ons that plug into a phone's micro-usb port on the market for both ios and android devices. huawei's could have a similar quality and pricing, so expect to shell out roughly $200 or more. we're bound to learn the details in the near future: the company says the accessory will be available "soon" around the world.

huawei is launching its p10 flagship smartphone at mwc


huawei has confirmed that it's debuting its upcoming flagship handset at mobile world congress in barcelona through a mysterious video teaser. unfortunately, it doesn't even show you a glimpse of the phone. what you do get are the words "change the way the world sees you," along with a photo of a hashtag and two eyes. that could be a hint that the p10 will have dual cameras, just like the iphone 7 and its own predecessor, the huawei p9.

huawei blames slower p10s on memory shortage


to address this, huawei business group ceo richard yu took to weibo to explain what was going on. the mixture of emmc and ufs memory chips inside the p10 units was apparently to do with a "serious shortage" of flash memory in the supply chain, so basically, huawei had to make do with whatever it could get. yu added that while his company is still struggling to source enough flash memory these days, he promises that "a good real-life performance and experience" are maintained by way of hardware and software optimization.the exec even went as far as suggesting that the "crooked" competitors have been blowing things out of proportions to smear huawei. "we would never do such a despicable thing as cutting corners." well, mr. yu, numbers don't lie (he even stressed that all the mate 9 ...






the honor 8 pro is huawei's best flagship yet


let's get down to the nitty gritty. tucked away inside the honor 8 pro is huawei's best homegrown chip: the kirin 960 with four 2.4ghz cores and four 1.8ghz cores. with 6gb of ram and 64 gigs of expandable storage backing that up, it's a beast by any account. it's also running the latest version of huawei's emui (5.1), which is built on top of android 7.0 nougat. among the improvements are a better blue light filter and new camera feature co-developed with gopro called highlights, which automatically creates video stories from what's available in the gallery (much like htc's old zoe highlights feature, then).like some other huawei devices, the honor 8 pro uses machine learning to optimize performance, predicting your daily facebook check so the app loads faster than it would do othe...






huawei's p10 wraps familiar performance in colorful bodies


a big part of that is because of how huawei built the device. the p10 is a surprisingly slim device (think 6.98mm thick) that fit really comfortably in my hands. for such a light device, it also feels impeccable well put together. this is nothing new for huawei, but picking up devices like these is a handy reminder of why huawei has picked so much steam in recent years. anyway, we're also looking at a crisp, bright 5.1-inch screen running at 1080p, and just a hint of curvature along the edges of the gorilla glass 5 panel covering the display.sitting just south of that display is a pill-shaped fingerprint sensor that worked very well in our brief testing. i'm not just talking about unlocking the phone -- the sensor doubles as a navigation key, so swiping left and right goes back one level..






huawei seeks to exploit gap left by samsung with new smartphone, technology news


huawei p10huawei is introducing a mass-market version of its premium business phone, to take advantage of a gap created by the withdrawal of samsung's flagship galaxy note 7 after a crisis with its batteries catching fire. huawei has aggressively expanded its mid- to high-end phones and is going head to head in asia and europe with apple and samsung in the premium phone market. huawei's new p10 line is expected to be cheaper than the business-oriented mate 9, with new features including facial detection that can tell whether a user is taking a selfie or a picture with more people and select its camera mode accordingly. huawei, the world's third-largest phone maker after apple and samsung, is seen by industry analysts as having the best hope among rival android smartphone makers of capit...






huawei: huawei staff fear cuts as smartphone profits disappoint


hong kong/barcelona: staff at china's huawei technologies co ltd are bracing for possible jobs cuts after internal memos highlighted intense pressure to improve earnings and an executive said the flagship smartphone business had missed internal profit targets. huawei, which rose rapidly to become the world's third largest smartphone maker, is aiming to narrow the gap with leaders apple inc and samsung electronics. but the company faces challenges after losing its top spot in china, the world's biggest market, to new contender oppo last year. huawei's mobile unit missed an internal profit target for 2016 even though revenues exceeded targets, richard yu, head of its consumer business division that includes mobile device operation, told reuters in an interview at the barcelona mobile wor...






huawei finally has a phone worthy of the leica brand


capable performance and pleasant aesthetics are important basics to nail, but huawei has come far enough that their delivering those is no longer surprising. what i wasn't expecting, though, was the p10's ability to take stunning pictures. when huawei first teamed up with leica to co-engineer the p9's cameras in 2016, the result was underwhelming. now the collaboration finally seems to be paying off. i'd actually reach for the p10 over my iphone 6s every time i want to snap a pretty picture (or a gratuitous selfie). the p10 plus has newer leica sensors and a larger f/1.8 aperture than the regular p10's f/2.0 setup, but i didn't notice a significant difference in image quality other than more-saturated colors on the larger handset. both cameras performed similarly well.the p10's rear...






huawei reveals the watch 2 at mwc 2017


the watch 2 has a -- now typical -- 1.3-inch, 390 x 390 display, 4gb of storage (not all of that is available to users), and a 420 mah batter, which huawei claims is good for two days general use, or 10 hours in "training" mode.as you might expect, the watch 2 comes with android wear 2, and there's an qualcomm snapdragon wear 2100 processor calling the shots. there also appears to be a focus on the sports crowd, with many of the different color combinations touting a masculine, rugged-looking design and the inclusion of built-in gps (and, of course, the now-standard heart rate monitor).for those of you with finer tastes, huawei's watch 2 also comes in a special porsche design edition. the two companies already collaborated on a special edition p9 handset, and the watch 2 edition will b...

huawei unveils its leica-branded p10 and p10 plus flagships


first, the basics. the p10 is equipped with a 5.1-inch, 1080p display, while its larger sibling rocks a 5.5-inch, wqhd panel. both are coated in gorilla glass 5 and have an octa-core, kirin 960 processor humming away underneath. the pair will come with 4gb of ram and 64gb of storage as standard; huawei will, however, sell a version of the p10 plus with 6gb of ram and 128gb of memory too. a 3200mah battery sits inside the p10, while a 3750mah cell powers its large p10 plus brother. like previous models, both will support 'supercharge' for quick top ups.the p10 is sporting what huawei calls a "leica dual-camera 2.0 pro edition" setup. it consists of a f1.9 summilux-h lens and two sensors -- a 12-megapixel one for regular shots and a 20-megapixel sensor dedicated to monochrome imaging. bo...






huawei: will global giant huawei finally shine in india this year?


new delhi: as competition gets fierce and margins turn razor-thin in the evolving indian market, chinese smartphones makers are fast reworking their strategies to gain an upper hand. but the road ahead is full of uncertainties. take the case of shenzen-headquartered company huawei. one of the top three global smartphone vendors (the other two being apple and samsung), it is yet to create a ripple in the indian market. the company had a mere one per cent share in india in the last quarter of 2016, and is expected to clock 0.8 per cent in the first quarter of 2017 (according to the data provided by the market research firm counterpoint research). on the other hand, beijing-headquartered xiaomi is not faring well in the saturated home turf but clocked over $1 billion in revenue in the indian






huawei watch 2 arrives in the us for $300


huawei watch 2, the wearable we think google should have used to launch android wear 2.0, is finally out in the us. starting today, you can get the $300 standard variant with its mixed rubber strap in carbon black and concrete grey from the usual retailers, including best buy, amazon, newegg and walmart. there's a classic variant with a rubber-leather hybrid strap and a metallic casing in case you want something that looks more formal. however, that one's not yet available (it'll be out "soon," the company promises) and will set you back $370. if you do snap up one of the standard variants, you'll also get 10 free weeks of google play music, which will come bundled with the device for a limited time.






shooting photos with the leica-branded huawei p10


to test its imaging prowess, i took a little stroll down las ramblas in barcelona. ahead of our full review, this seemed like the perfect place to dabble in some light street photography. it was, however, a pretty dismal day, with barely any sunshine piercing through the clouds. at first i was a tad disappointed with my shots. they were plenty sharp, capturing some pigeons mid-flight across the plaça de catalunya. but most looked a little drab, lacking color and punch. a little tinkering in photoshop would surely remedy this, but i was hoping for a little more straight off the camera.huawei's p10 (and p10 plus, which i didn't have a chance to use) has two sensors: a 20-megapixel monochrome one, and a 12-megapixel rgb version. if you keep the phone on auto, it'll combine their respectiv...

gopro's deal with huawei gives it a foothold in smartphones


appropriately, gopro is sprucing up the stand-alone quik app for android and ios users. there's an easier editing flow with new options to both personalize and stylize videos (similar to what p10 owners get), and it should be easier to pick songs and fine-tune the sound.the huawei move certainly doesn't signal an exit from hardware any time soon -- that's gopro's bread and butter. along with the karma drone, however, it does signal a further attempt to diversify beyond gopro's original camera business. success with partnerships like this not only puts gopro's technology in front of more people, it gives the company a source of revenue that isn't tied to its device release cycles -- it might not have to worry so much about taking its time with a new camera.

huawei is considering cell towers that wirelessly charge drones


the concept is part of huawei's x labs project (in partnership with china mobile). the team behind it identified what it thinks are the two main problems when it comes to using drones for cell site inspection: battery life, and gps interference from buildings. a spokesperson suggested that gps issue is also often a significant contributor to the battery life issue. the proposed solution is to have cell towers boost gps data, passing it to the drone while also providing wireless charging.in the future, the company hopes that wireless charging will be good enough that the drone won't need to land at all, but that seems a few years off, especially since we can barely charge a phone more than a few feet across the room right now. still, if the technology develops fast enough, it could have u..

lawsuit takes aim at google, huawei over nexus 6p battery issues


the nexus 6p hit the market in late 2015. it's a $500 smartphone with a 5.7 inch screen that was, overall, a welcome improvement over the previous year's nexus 6. as long as it didn't suddenly shut off with full battery, that is.the plaintiffs in today's lawsuit want to force google and huawei to issue a recall or repair program, and provide monetary compensation to those affected. the filing includes a few pages of reddit comments and tweets from dissatisfied nexus 6p customers; it notes the boot looping complaints began around september 2016."when bootlooping occurs, the phone is essentially a very expensive paperweight," the suit reads. "after the defect occurs, the phone no longer operates whatsoever. it cannot be used to make calls, send text messages, access the internet, or u...

xiaomi is reportedly building its own phone processor


if xiaomi does indeed start making its own processor, there could be several benefits for the company and its customers. it will likely be cheaper to make smartphones with the company's own chips, instead of buying them from qualcomm or other third-party suppliers. that would allow xiaomi to sell their devices at even more competitive prices than before. custom chips could also let xiaomi come up with creative features to help its phones stand out. huawei uses its own kirin processor in the mate 9, and that hardware integration enabled the company to make the phone artificially intelligent. indeed, thanks to the kirin cpu, the mate 9 is able to learn your habits over time to optimize performance. xiaomi will have to ensure its components can measure up to the competition, though. in additi

amazon puts alexa inside your iphone


don't uninstall the alexa app just yet, though, because you'll need it to tweak your default settings.the iphone isn't the only handset to get alexa -- huawei announced the voice service for its upcoming mate 9 phone -- but it is the first. getting alexa on as many devices as possible makes a lot of sense for amazon, which is competing with apple and google for digital assistant supremacy.the ios update to the amazon app should roll out starting today and continue for the next week.






insta360's 'affordable' 8k vr camera is up for pre-orders


for those who aren't familiar with this shenzhen-based startup, insta360 is perhaps better known for its 360-camera dongles for smartphones: the nano for ios devices and the air for android (the latter has also been co-branded with huawei and nubia in china). these are significantly more affordable than the $300 to $400 offerings from major brands, with the nano retailing for $199 and the air going for $130 -- the former costs more as it also works as a standalone device.obviously, insta360 is pulling a similar but more aggressive move in the professional market. when the company first reached out to us, it wasn't afraid to admit that its pro is going right after the nokia ozo by almost matching the latter's specs. the pro features six 200-degree lenses -- two fewer than the ozo -- that...






alexa on the huawei mate 9 isn't worth the effort (yet)


plus, having a continued conversation with alexa becomes frustrating if there are long pauses between your commands, since the phone goes to sleep after its preset time (between 15 seconds and 10 minutes) and you'll have to unlock if you want to talk to the assistant again. you could work around this by setting your mate 9 to only go to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity (the maximum period allowed), but that's a compromise security-minded folks won't likely tolerate.still, it's a flaw i'm willing to overlook since having alexa on a smartphone is not just about hands-free convenience. amazon's helper currently has a more robust set of functions than its rivals, with more than 7,000 skills that enable voice control for a plethora of services. many of these are available on the mate ...
