Back in 2018, YouTuber MKBHD decided to run a blind smartphone camera test in which he pitted a variety of phones released in 2018 against each other, where users would then vote on social media which is their favorite photo. The results were very surprising in which the budget (but flagship) Pocophone F1 nearly walked away the winner.
Come early 2020, it is expected that Huawei will be taking the wraps off its next flagship smartphone, the Huawei P40 and the P40 Pro. That being said, given that we’re nearly towards the end of the year, it also means that it is ripe for the rumor mills to start churning out P40-related rumors and leaks.
In recent years, a company by the name of Devialet has made a name for itself with a futuristic-looking speaker in the form of the Devialet Phantom. The speaker, known for its unique design, also boasts the ability to produce sound that would otherwise cost customers thousands of dollars to replicate, which is truly impressive considering its overall size.
As some of you might have heard, Huawei is currently placed on the US government’s Entity List. Companies that have been placed on this list are basically banned from doing business with US companies. This clearly puts Huawei in a bind as they do rely on hardware and software in its various products and services that are made by companies in the US.
As many of you might have heard by now, Huawei has been banned from doing business with companies in the US.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has been released to mixed reviews, where there are some who praise its foldable display tech, which is impressive, but at the same time its overall design does leave a lot to be desired. Will Huawei fare better? The semi-good news is that we should be able to find out soon enough.
2019 might not seem like the best year for Huawei, what with the company facing resistance from several governments around the world in adopting their 5G equipment and technology. They are also collateral damage in the trade war between the US and China, which has resulted in them not being able to do business with US companies.
When Samsung announced that they would be delaying the launch of their Galaxy Fold while they looked into improving on its build quality and overall integrity, it felt like this gave Huawei a chance to beat Samsung to the punch. However, it wasn’t too long after that Huawei also announced that they too would be delaying the launch for similar testing.
A few days ago, the Huawei Mate 30 series was launched and based on its specs, boy is it an impressive handset. Unfortunately, the phone will not ship with Google Play services which admittedly does tamper our excitement quite a bit, and to make matters worse, it seems that the phone’s bootloader will not be unlockable.
