Huawei Mate 10 will seriously challenge Apple's iPhone 8, company's CEO promises

Huawei is currently the world’s number 3 smartphone manufacturer, and the Chinese company doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. There’s no market we can think of where Huawei doesn’t sell its handsets, so the next step for the giant would be to try and appeal to even more consumers in those markets.

The number one market where Huawei must pick up the pace in North America where the Chinese company is seriously challenged by Samsung and Apple. Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu told Bloomberg in an interview that his company is readying an answer to Apple’s iPhone 8, which …


Foxconn’s CEO and president Trump announce plans for a $10 billion LCD factory in Wisconsin by 2020

President Trump’s election campaign largely revolved around making “America great again” and bringing businesses into the country. Trump has been quite engaged with the tech sector in particular, where bringing the production of iPhones to American soil seems like one of his top priorities in the business field. While it is not clear whether Tim Cook actually promised Trump last week to build three ‘big, big, big’ Apple plants in the US, the president has apparently been involved in a previously rumoured venture with Foxconn that was officially …

Sorry Lumia 520 owners, Windows 10 on ARM is not coming to existing Windows Phone devices

Later this year, Microsoft is expected to roll out Windows 10 on ARM. The idea, according to Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, is to give consumers the full Windows 10 experience on mobile devices that are powered by chips using the ARM architecture. The new devices would use Snapdragon chipsets and offer outstanding battery life. Not only is Belfiore really talking about tablets and laptops, he adds that this technology will not be compatible with existing Windows phones.

Having the full Windows 10 running a phone means that Microsoft would need to make significant changes to the platform’s UI. …

Alcatel Idol 4 Pro with Windows 10 goes on pre-order in Europe via Microsoft

Europe was one of the most prolific markets for Windows Phone handsets, while the United States was one of the weakest. Still, for some reason, Alcatel thought that releasing a Windows Phone flagship exclusively in the US would be good for business.

The Alcatel Idol 4 Pro, which is, in fact, a rebranded Alcatel Idol 4s that made its debut in the US last year, is finally going to hit the shelves in Europe. The high-end smartphone runs Windows 10 right out of the box but packs an obsolete chipset inside.

The smartphone will be available for purchase on July …

New premium Windows 10 Mobile device coming from Microsoft?

It has been a while since Microsoft unveiled a new Windows 10 Mobile handset. Brad Sams, executive editor of Thurrott.com, says that a Windows 10 prototype mobile device is being examined inside corporate headquarters.

Huawei Mate 10 rumor review: design, specs, price, and everything else we know so far
