Huawei has some big goals for 2018 and they’re not all for smartphones. Huawei also makes wearables and smartwatches, which together add to the company’s overall earnings. Huawei has made some memorable watches in the past, and just a few days ago, the company introduced a new timepiece in the fourth-gen TalkBand B5.
At MWC 2018 in February, Huawei showed off an upcoming series of Android-powered tablets. After four months, these MediaPad M5 slates are now available in the United States.
Third-party ROMs allow smartphone owners to customize and mod their device in just about any way feasible. As if Android was not customizable enough, some Android OEMs elect to support bootloader unlocking. Huawei is one of them and to keep its devices open to heavy customization, the Chinese OEM has always had a bootloader unlock program. In disappointing news for some of you, the program is shutting down.
We heard about the next-gen Huawei Watch from the company’s CEO at MWC 2018, and a few other Wear OS smartwatches are expected out this year as well. But don’t get your hopes up for something brand new with the next Huawei Watch, at least according to Evan Blass who posted on Twitter.
Huawei is a formidable Chinese smartphone manufacturer who has been in the news quite a bit thus far in 2018. Earlier this week, the company made headlines again with some big news you may not have expected.
Rather that at MWC 2018, Chinese manufacturer Huawei held a private event today in Paris. The company unveiled its much-anticipated and long-rumored P10 successors part of a new P20 family comprising P20 and P20 Pro. Huawei teased the event many times over recent weeks and sent out event invitations, so we knew it would be happening. And now, the latest Huawei flagship smartphones designed for 2018 are here. Here’s everything to know.
Huawei is having a rocky start to the year despite its optimism for 2018. At CES 2018 in January, the Chinese OEM attempted to gain attention and popularity in the US for the first time in its history with Mate 10 Pro, but US carriers including Verizon and AT&T weren’t having it. Despite that, the company did not give up, but yet another roadblock just got in the way of the company’s expansion plans.
Huawei didn’t announce any smartphones at MWC 2018, perhaps due to the immense competition. However, the desperate Chinese company did manage to introduce new tablets, confirm a Huawei Watch 3, and share details regarding a private smartphone launch event happening later this month in Paris. At the event, Huawei will show off the long-rumored and much-anticipated P20 phones.
