Huawei launches new phone with own version of Android
MUNICH (AP) — Huawei is launching a new flagship smartphone that will run on the Chinese tech giant's own version of Google's Android operating system because of U.S. export sanctions. The Chinese tech giant unveiled the Mate 30 series of phones at an event in Munich, Germany on Thursday. The device wasn't expected to come with popular Google apps such as Chrome, YouTube, Gmail or the Google Play Store, limiting its appeal to consumers. Huawei, the world's second-biggest smartphone maker, is fighting to save its business after the Trump administration blocked access to U.S. components and technology in May on national security grounds.

Huawei’s- folding phone, , is finally going on sale next month. The company announced the news at a launch event today attended and reported on .
The Mate X is a 5G phone with Huawei’s Kirin 980 processor and Barong 5000 modem, and it has a dual-cell 4,500mAh battery that can reportedly be filled to 85 percent in half an hour with 55W fast charging. When unfolded, the screen is 8 inches diagonal, and when it’s closed it’s like having a phone with a 6.6-inch screen on the front and a 6.38-inch panel on the back.
Unlike Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, which opens up like a book, the Mate X’s screen wraps around the outside of the clamshell device. This should make it more usable as a conventional phone than the Galaxy Fold, but the plastic-covered screen faces an even greater durability challenge since it’s constantly exposed.
Huawei just revealed a new smartphone, and this one doesn't have Google apps either
Huawei has just announced the Nova 5T, its latest mid-range smartphone, although the lack of Google apps may ruin its chances of success.Huawei launched the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro last month, which didn't have access to Google Play services, and it has now unveiled the Nova 5T, its latest mid-range device.
Seeing a folding phone from a distance is, at first, a flurry of confusion. It just doesn’t seem possible that a large tablet can be transformed into a
Say hello to the Huawei Mate X foldable smartphone, which is making its debut at MWC 2019. Samsung’ s Galaxy Fold announcement isn’t even a week old yet, and we already have a competitor that is thinner, has a bigger screen, and folds flatter.
We’ll have to see how the Mate X holds up, because it is not a cheap device. It’ll start shipping in China on November 15th for 16,999 yuan, or about $2,400, which gets you a model with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
As for an international release, Huawei tells The Verge in a statement that “Our strategy is based on carriers’ 5G roll out in different regions. So far, Huawei has made the Huawei Mate X available in the China market on November 15. A global launch plan is under review.”
Meanwhile, Huawei also announced that it’s shipped 200 million smartphones already in 2019, having reached that milestone 64 days earlier than it did last year. The real proof of the company’s resilience, however, will come once we have year-on-year results that factor in.
Mate 10: Huawei wants to compete with the iPhone
Huawei advances its pawns on the front of smartphones Premium with a Mate 10 announced as "better than the iPhone".
With the Mate 9, Huawei introduced a high-end mobile terminal.
The Chinese company now promises that its successor will be even better and even better than the next iPhone.
Huawei plans to deliver up to 150 million smartphones in 2017. The group recorded a turnover of 42 billion dollars in the first half and relies heavily on the Mate 10 to consolidate its number 3 position of manufacturers of smartphones. Even to overtake Apple and Samsung who occupy the first two places.
Huawei had 9.8% of the global smartphone market in the first quarter, according to research firm IDC. In China, its sales even exceeded those of Oppo in the first quarter, with 20.8 million units delivered, one-fifth of the country's overall sales, according to IDC.
"We will have an even more powerful product," said Richard Yu, product manager at Huawei, in an interview with. "The Mate 10, which has a much longer battery standalone with a borderless display, a fast change speed, better performance in photography and many other features that will help us compete with Apple."
The competition looks fierce indeed with the next iPhone, which will celebrate the 10 years of the brand. Huawei will also have to contend with Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and Galaxy Note 8 competition.
To brighten its image, the company founded by former army engineer Ren Zhengfei three decades ago did not hesitate to call on Leica for the photography component. The company has also attempted a foray into the notebook market with the MateBook X.
Huawei also clears the low-cost segment, too unprofitable: "We give up very low-end devices because the margin is extremely low and it does not make enough money for us.
To gain market share, the company also expands abroad: "The priority is Europe, China and Japan, where the economy is healthy and people can consume them."
As for the official specifications of the Huawei Mate 10, they remain mysterious.
Some rumors suggest some of them. The terminal could thus be equipped with a 2.5D curved screen defined in Quad HD (2560 by 1440 pixels) and up to 8 GB of RAM.
In addition, the device should ship the next SoC (Silicon on Chip) Kirin 970 signed HiSilicon, a chip better than its predecessor and can also support artificial intelligence features.
