Huawei catches the Android Wear wave, smartwatch coming in 2015

Huawei catches the Android Wear wave, smartwatch coming in 2015

As the Android Wear bandwagon rolls ever onward, we’re starting to see a number of new manufacturers jump on board alongside those who’ve been with the platform from the beginning. In an interview with Engadget, Huawei CEO Richard Yu has indicated that his company also intends to bring a watch to market. The Chinese OEM recently launched its first wearable device – the Talkband – but it seems they’ll be taking their time with Android Wear, with an expected release sometime in 2015. Of course, that could mean we’ll see something at CES. Yu also commented that Huawei’s device will[Read More...]

Huawei announce the Ascend G7

Huawei announce the Ascend G7

Huawei has already introduced their newest phablet, the Ascend Mate 7, but have also introduced another phablet at their IFA 2014 event. While the Ascend Mate 7 is at the higher end of the range, the Ascend G7 will be aimed at the low to mid-range market. With a 5.5″ 1280×720 resolution screen, the Ascend G7 isn’t going to be mistaken for a small phone. The phone does however feature a metallic unibody design which will see many people draw comparisons to another phone from a prominent manufacturer. The phones metal body will be made available in three colours including[Read More...]

Huawei announce the Ascend Mate 7

At IFA in Berlin, Huawei have taken the wraps of their latest smartphone, the behemothly sized Ascend Mate 7. The phone carries a 6″ FullHD (1920×1080) resolution display, atop a body which is just 7.9mm thin. At 185 grams, the phone weighs a little more than most, but this is due to the construction of the phone, which Huawei are saying is made up of more than 95% metal, including a aluminum alloy interior structure. The phone body also includes a first for Huawei, who have made a move into bio-metric security with the Ascend Mate 7, offering a rear[Read More...]

Huawei is a pretty well known brand in Australia and to date their phones have been well priced, though more low to mid-range than higher end, but that ends today, with the launch of the Ascend P7 – their first FullHD phone. To go along with the Ascend P7, Huawei has also announced that their fitness band/bluetooth headset, is also now available as well. Announced back in May, the Ascend P7 is quite the stunning looking handset. The phone is super slim, sliding in at a mere 6.5mm thin, but in such a slim body, you will also get a[Read More...]

Huawei Ascend G6 — Review

Huawei Ascend G6 — Review

Huawei has been evolving in front of our eyes for the last couple of years. Bit by bit, device by device, the Chinese manufacturer has been releasing handsets designed to appeal to a more upmarket customer than some of the bargain-basement handsets we’ve seen them deliver in the past. Until recently, a Huawei handset has meant “cheap and cheerful” – device construction nobody would write home about, average internals and – most egregiously for those of us in capital cities who like our data connectivity – 3G-only. Last year’s Ascend P6 marked a turning point for the company, though. Huawei’s[Read More...]

Huawei Ascend G6 coming to Vodafone, Optus and retail stores in June

Huawei Ascend G6 coming to Vodafone, Optus and retail stores in June

Huawei hosted an event in Sydney this morning to announce the Australian launch of the Ascend G6 smartphone, coming to Australian retailers as well as on-contract at Optus from June 2, and Vodafone from June 11. This was a bit of a surprise given the overnight launch of the Asend P7 in Paris (it took a while to realise I wasn’t looking at the P7 once I arrived at the event), but Huawei’s Australian staff were apologetic for the confusion and assured us we’d be seeing the P7 and other products in good time. The Ascend G6 borrows from Huawei’s[Read More...]

Huawei set to launch the Ascend P7 in Australia next week?

May is just getting busier and busier for Android launches. We’ve just received an invite to the Australian launch of the latest handset from Huawei. This is of course most likely to be referencing the Huawei Ascend P7. The event is scheduled for next Thursday morning, where we hope to learn all about the new phone. The phone will be launched in Paris a day earlier on May 7th, but we should get all the local launch details at the Australian launch. Huawei has been teasing the launch of the P7 over the last few days on their Twitter account,[Read More...]
