Huawei Y5 2017 quietly unveiled: stylish curves, but unimpressive specs

Huawei is well-known for its affordable Android smartphones since forever. It’s one of the few companies that refined its portfolio of entry-level beyond anything we’ve seen until now. Naturally, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other choices that make as good alternatives.

The latest addition to Huawei’s ever growing lineup of affordable smartphones is weirdly called Y5 2017. It wasn’t officially announced since it’s an entry-level device, but it’s now listed on Huawei’s website.

We do know much of the phone’s specs configuration, but no details about …

Huawei blames smartphones for its slowing profit growth

In a market which values growth over market share, even just the slowdown of a company’s expansion can be somewhat bad news. Such is the case with Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications equipment and smartphone maker, whose recent successes in the mobile phone industry have apparently lowered the company’s profit growth for 2016.
