Huawei’s 2019 isn’t off to a very good start. The company has been facing a lot of resistance from varying countries who are skeptical about using the company’s technology in their 5G networks. This is mostly from the US government who has expressed concern about Huawei and the potential of China spying on them, and have encouraged their allies to do the same.
Huawei is in a bit of a bind at the moment. The US government and its allies are taking steps to keep Huawei out of their communications infrastructure, and are urging others to follow suit. This would mean a pretty big loss of business for the company, but speaking to the BBC, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei believes that they cannot be crushed.
Given how well-received the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro smartphones were back in 2018, it’s safe to say that many are anticipating the launch of the Huawei P30 smartphones. The good news is that Huawei has since confirmed that the P30 and P30 Pro smartphones will be officially announced next month.
A lot of companies tend to “borrow” features from each other, where a company releases a killer feature for a product or service, and shortly after another company will come along and offer something similar. Unfortunately for Huawei, it seems that a recent report is claiming that the company is actually resorting to some pretty “dubious” tactics to steal the tech secrets of their competitors.
Our scoring system yielded a Uber-G Camera IQ score of 167, which makes the Huawei Mate 20 Pro today's ultimate mobile camera, thanks to an unmatched mix of quality and versatility. It also is the ultimate zoom camera, a title that it shares with the Huawei P20 Pro.
Huawei will be out in full force at the Mobile World Congress 2019 later this month but it appears that the company won’t be launching the P30 series there. Its MWC 2019 agenda includes a foldable smartphone, though, which the company says will be 5G-enabled. The Huawei P30, on the other hand, is going to be unveiled in March.
Huawei doesn’t want Samsung to hog the spotlight with its foldable smartphone. The company has posted a teaser online which confirms that it’s going to unveil a foldable smartphone at its MWC 2019 press event in Barcelona later this month. It has long been reported that Huawei has been working on a foldable smartphone of its own.
Huawei will soon be jumping on the 5G bandwagon as well with a flagship smartphone and its sub-brand Honor has 5G ambitions of its own. The company has revealed that it’s going to release a smartphone in the second half of this year which will be able to take advantage of the next-generation mobile networks.
There has been a lot of talk about foldable smartphones recently. Samsung is going to show one soon, most likely with the Galaxy S10 at its event on February 20. Xiaomi unveiled a cool prototype of its device yesterday while Motorola is believed to be reviving its Razr brand for a foldable device. Don’t count Huawei out, the Chinese giant has confirmed it’s bringing a foldable 5G smartphone to MWC […]
Huawei has long had a stated goal of becoming the top smartphone vendor in the world. The Chinese smartphone giant has predicted today that it could become the world’s biggest-selling smartphone vendor this year. It would be a big achievement for the company if it manages to do that when you consider the fact that its smartphones are not available in the U.S. market.
It has been alleged time and again that Huawei’s products enable the Chinese government to spy on unsuspecting users. The United States has effectively banned Huawei’s network communication equipment from the country while it has also pressed its allies to follow suit. Huawei has always maintained that it doesn’t have a backdoor in its products for China and this has once again been reiterated by Ren Zhengfei, the reclusive founder […]

Goodbye CES 2019, this was Ubergizmo’s 14th CES! It was difficult to navigate the avalanche of new products and technologies announced there.

Once manufacturers remove it from a series, it’s unlikely that subsequent models bring it back, but it appears that Huawei will be blazing a trail here. Leak-based renders of the Huawei P30 suggest that this handset will indeed bring back the headphone jack.
