Honor 8 Pro and Honor 6X expected to receive Android 8.0 Oreo by the end of 2017

Honor 8 Pro is one of the most recent high-end smartphones launched by the Chinese company, so it’s no surprise it will be updated to a new version of Android. However, it’s great that Honor is thinking to update mid-range smartphones launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board to the latest Oreo operating system.

Honor 6X and Honor 8 Pro will receive the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update by the end of the year. The former might get the update in early 2018, but that shouldn’t bother anyone who purchased the smartphone.

Apparently, there was a …

Honor 9 Review

Introduction
There will always be top-shelf smartphones that spare no expense when it comes to design, features, and raw performance. And you’re always going to be able to find bargain-basement hardware that may feel awkward and outdated, but gets the job done for a fraction of what those flagships cost. But it’s right in the middle where things really get interesting, as manufacturers try to strike a careful balance that aims to still feel premium while also giving us a heck of a strong value for our money.

Last summer, Huawei’s Honor sub-brand introduced its latest affordable flagship …

You can honor Heather Heyer and other Charlottesville heroes starting today

TwitterFacebook

Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old Virginia native, died tragically on Saturday in an incident that has since been described widely as an act of domestic terrorism.

Heyer and thousands of others protesters converged on Charlottesville, Virginia as seemingly every flavor of racist gathered this weekend for a “Unite the Right” rally. And now, one day later, the anti-hate movement across the U.S. is stepping up to gather again, this time in solidarity.

Starting on Saturday night and continuing through Sunday, organized vigils will give distant observers an opportunity to come together and pay tribute to the heroes of Charlottesville. The intent, according to The Indivisible Project, is to “[stand in] solidarity with our brave friends in Charlottesville who put themselves at risk to fight against hatred and white supremacy.” Read more…

Honor 9 Premium with 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM coming to Europe for €455

The Honor 9 is a premium device by itself, so the fact that the Chinese company launched an enhanced version of the flagship and called it Premium is rather weird. The better-featured variant has no less than 6GB RAM and 128GB expandable storage inside.

Since versions with more RAM are usually introduced in China exclusively, it’s quite a surprise to find out that Honor will be making the 6GB RAM variant available in other regions as well.

As per Winfuture’s report, the so-called Honor 9 Premium has been officially introduced in Italy where the smartphone …

Huawei Honor 9 hands on: a look at the company's latest device

Yesterday was Huawei’s summer showcase in New York City, a
chance for the company to bring not just their latest devices stateside, but
their mission statement as well. Huawei’s slogan “make it possible” speaks not
only to the consumer but also to the company itself. Just a few short weeks
ago, it was named the 88th most valuable company on Forbes top 100
list, and now it seems Huawei is poised to creep up from behind and begin to steal
market share from the biggest names in the industry. Their high-performing
chipset sub-brand, HiSilicon, continues to produce capable and high-powered …

Honor 6A mid-ranger with Android Nougat launched in Europe for €169

The Honor 6A is not necessarily a new device since it’s been introduced in China back in May, but Europeans got the option to buy it only recently. Honor decided that its previously China-exclusive handset would make a fine addition to its portfolio of mid-range smartphones aimed at the European market.

Starting this week, the Honor 6A will be available for purchase at various retailer across Europe for €169, a decent price considering its confirmed specs. The European version of Honor 6A is only slightly different than the Chinese variant when it comes to hardware.

Deal: Newegg offers the Honor 8 64GB with accessory bundle for just $319.99

Honor 8 is one of those pleasant surprises that smartphone users are getting from time to time. The flagship killer has been around for about a year and continues to sell in the United States currently. One of the reasons could be the fact that Honor 8 was discounted plenty of times by various retailers in the country.

The latest offer that consumers who are looking for a bargain can get is the one available at Newegg, possibly for a limited time. Although the Honor 8 64GB was on sale for $320 a few months ago, the offer did not include any free accessories.
