Huawei P11 name appears likely for Huawei's next P series phone, not Huawei P20

A few days ago, we told you that some expect the Huawei P10 sequel to be called the P20. But based on the number of trademarks already in place, it would seem that we should expect the next phone in the Huawei P series to be called the Huawei P11. While both names were filed with trademark regulators starting in 2015, continuing into 2016 and through last year, Huawei P11 shows up in registrations more often than Huawei P20 does.

Test pages discovered on Huawei’s site show the world’s third largest smartphone manufacturer using the P11 and P12 names. But these are just placeholders being …

Huawei, ZTE heavily reduce lobbying expenditures in the US, but remain sponsors of telecom events

It looks like Huawei and ZTE, the two big Chinese handset makers that are trying to penetrate the US smartphone market, have decided to take a pause stop pouring money into the pockets of US lobbyists.

If Huawei spent no less than $1.2 million back 2012 for lobbying in the US, the company spent just $50,000 last year, down from $348,500 in 2016. That’s quite a huge gap for Huawei, as the company is trying to convince the US government that it’s not a threat to national security.

On the other hand, ZTE usually spent between $130,000 and $240,000 every quarter from 2014 to 2015, for …

Huawei P20 (Huawei P11?) rumor review: triple cameras, Face ID, bezels begone

MWC 2018 is drawing near and we are soon about to drown in an avalanche of brand-new smartphone models. But let’s not complain — we are, in fact, excited about all the cool new tech we are about to finally see, after months and months of leaks and rumors!

Some of it might even go on to be on Honor’s flagships since …

Huawei Mate 10 Lite Review

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite is a mid-range phone sold across the globe (but not in the United States) as the more affordable sibling to the high-end Mate 10 series.

The phone features a 2:1 screen – one that’s taller than traditional 16:9 screens we used to see on virtually every new phone until about last year. It is built of solid metal and it runs on Huawei’s own Emotion UI interface on top of Android 7.0 Nougat. The Mate 10 Lite also has a dual camera system on both the front and the back, with a 2-megapixel secondary camera on both sides that allows shooting photos …

US bill plans to prevent government from working with firms that use Huawei and ZTE technology

It looks like Chinese smartphones makers will have a hard time selling their products in the United States. After the failed partnership between Huawei and major carrier AT&T, it appears that another Chinese giant, ZTE, will have problems signing agreements with certain firms in the US.

A Republican lawmaker announced earlier this week that it has introduced legislation aimed specifically at Huawei and ZTE. The bill that was made public this Friday is supposed to prevent the federal government from working with companies that use equipment made by Huawei and …

Samsung found guilty of infringing on 4G technology patents owned by Huawei

Back in May 2016, Huawei filed a lawsuit against Samsung in China for infringing upon some of its patents. After 8 months, the Chinese court finally ruled and its decision isn’t good at all for Samsung.

The South Korean company was found guilty of infringing on two 4G standard essential patents related to telecommunication technology and equipment owned by Huawei. Moreover, the court found that Samsung delayed the negotiations on purpose probably because it knew it infringed on those patents.

Apparently, this was a very complicated case since it took the …

Huawei to roll out EMUI 8.0 based on Oreo to Honor 8 Pro, Honor 8 Lite, Honor 9i and Honor 7X

Huawei has just announced the launch of its new EMUI 8.0 user interface, which is based on Android Oreo. The new UI already comes pre-loaded on the Honor View 10 and the upcoming Honor 9 Lite.

However, a handful of other smartphones will receive EMUI 8.0 via OTA update, including the Honor 8 Pro, Honor 8 Lite, Honor 9i, and Honor 7X, Huawei recently confirmed.

Huawei has decided to jump from EMUI 5.1 to 8.0 to avoid any confusions related to the version of Android which is based upon. EMUI 8.0 brings lots of new features and improvements in addition to what’s …

Huawei P20 to have a narrow, likely bezel-less 18.7:9 screen

Huawei is the world’s third largest phone maker and it is preparing to unveil its new flagship – the rumored Huawei P20 – soon. Today, we see leaked benchmark results of the upcoming device that reveal one key detail about it: an 18.7:9 aspect ratio display. Put simply, this is a taller screen than the regular 16:9 displays of the near past and suggests that the phone will have an edge-to-edge, “bezel-less” screen.

We do not know the screen size just yet, but the screen resolution is listed at 1,080 x 2,244 pixels, or Full HD+.
Other companies have adopted …
