Not long ago, Huawei’s Chief Marketing Officer made what appeared to be tell-tale comments regarding the company's device plans. Shao Yang said a dual-boot device was coming from Huawei, and would arrive to the US in the second quarter of this year. Huawei is tip-toeing away from those comments, and now say no such device is in the works, nor do they plan on making one.
Huawei wants to have their cake and eat it, too. The company, who recently pulled out of the US market, is promising to support Windows Phone. In doing so, they’re also hedging their bets by promising we’ll see a dual-booting device, which will bring Windows and Android on the same device.
Recent AnTuTu scores reveal that Huawei's upcoming octa-core Kirin 920 comes close the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 in terms of performance. If true, this could pretty much put the Chinese manufacturer on the map as one of the chip makers that are starting to gnaw at Qualcomm's big pie.
Coming along with the MediaPad X1 7.0, Huawei also announced a new smartphone. The handset is the Ascend G6 4G. This means we are still waiting on an announcement for the Ascend P7. While that wait continues, we did make a point to visit Huawei during our time here in Barcelona to check out the Ascend G6 4G.
After quite of bit of leaks and speculation, Huawei officially announced the MediaPad X1 7.0 here at Mobile World Congress. As we learned from the original announcement, the MediaPad X1 was going to be a 7-inch device that works both as a tablet and phone. While we sometimes refer to phablets as being oversized smartphones, it seems this may be a case of an oversized phablet.
Rounding up Huawei's first batch of MWC 2014 pre-announcements, we come to the Ascend G6. Though definitely not the Ascend P7 we've been waiting for, this little handy smartphone might still have a number of things that will make it an easy sell.
Android tablets that double as humongous phones is definitely nothing new nor unique but for some reason, Huawei still wants in. Trying to unlock possibilities, the Chinese manufacturer believes that its new MediaPad X1 tablet has an edge over others in that device category.
Huawei has finally showed its hand and its TalkBand B1 wearable looks exactly the way it was leaked. But will this amalgamation of a sports wristband and smartphone extension be the smart wearable hit that Huawei is hoping for?
Rumors had been suggesting Huawei was planning to unveil a smartwatch during Mobile World Congress, and while we have yet to see the announcement, we have gotten a brief look at the watch. En route to Spain, Android Community spotted the watch on an unnamed person from Huawei. We weren't close enough to get a super detailed image, however what we could see does fit in with the image that leaked earlier.
