Honor Holly 4 gets released in Europe as Honor 6A Pro

Huawei is one of those companies that likes to confuse customers with its portfolio. When it’s not launching the same device worldwide, but using different names, Huawei makes some of its smartphones available in select markets and introduces variations of that device in other regions, again, under different names.

The same goes for the Honor Holly 4 which made its debut in India months ago. Initially introduced in China as Honor 6A, the smartphone is now available for purchase in Italy as Honor 6A Pro.

Huawei Y6 Pro (2017) silently introduced in Europe: metal body, low price

The sequel to the Huawei Y6 Pro has just been silently introduced in Europe. The budget-friendly smartphone will soon be available for purchase in select markets for only €179. Potential customers can choose either of the three color options: black, gold and silver.

Unlike the original model that packs a MediaTek chipset inside, Huawei Y6 Pro (2017) is equipped with a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor. However, it has the same amount of memory: 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage.

The only downside, when compared to the previous model, is …

Retailer confirms Huawei Mate 10 Lite launches in Europe in early November for €349

Huawei Mate 10 is just around the corner, but the flagship won’t come alone. The Chinese company plans to launch many a few derivatives of its Mate 10 meant to cover all price tiers.

The Mate 10 Lite is the mid-range version of Huawei’s flagship. Even though it will retain some the Mate 10 specs like the 18:9 aspect ratio of the display and the amount of memory, it fails to check all the boxes required for a top-tier handset.

For example, Huawei Mate 10 Lite will be powered by a 3,340 mAh battery, whereas the Mate 10 comes with a much larger 4,000 mAh battery. …

It was assumed that rose pink would remain exclusive to Taiwan and South Korea, but it looks like this won’t be the case. Last month, Samsung confirmed that it will launch the Galaxy S8 and …

Huawei Nova 2 coming soon to Europe for a whopping €400 price

The Nova series is a rather new lineup of mid-range smartphones coming from Huawei, but it already has quite a lot of devices. One of the additions to the Nova series that was introduced this year is the Huawei Nova 2.

The Huawei Nova 2 was launched in China back in June, but it looks like the mid-range Android smartphone will make its debut in Europe as well. Currently, the handset is listed at various retailers in the Netherlands, but its availability will certainly expand to other countries soon.

As a matter fact, the Nova 2 might be one of the phone showcased …

Nokia 8 price in Europe is lower than it was previously announced

The first Nokia-branded flagship smartphone launched by HMD was introduced this week and it’s already available for pre-order in some European countries. The good news is the Nokia 8 will not be as expensive (not that it’s too expensive, on the contrary) as HMD announced during the launch event.

Although HMD stated that Nokia 8 will be available for purchase in Europe for around €600, many retailers across the continent are selling the smartphone for less. For example, German carriers O2 and Mobilcom Debitel offer the Nokia 8 for just €577 and €579, respectively.
