Huawei announces P8 Lite (2017) to be with1080p screen and Kirin 655

Honor Note 8 is now official: 6.6″ QuadHD AMOLED

Honor Note 8The Honor Note 8 has been made official today in China, as promised about a week ago. The high-end phablet from Huawei’s sub-brand joins the likes of Xiaomi Mi Max and Lenovo Phab 2 Pro in an area where the ‘phone’ is starting to lose ground to the ‘tablet’.

The 6.6-inch Honor Note 8 is bigger than those two competitors by some 0.2″ in diagonal, and Huawei has picked 1,440 x 2,560 px as the proper resolution at this size. That results in a 443ppi pixel density by their own calculations – plenty sharp, then. (more…)

Huawei Maimang 5 with 5.5-inch Display, 4GB RAM, 16MP 4K Camera launched

huawei-Maimang-5Huawei Maimang 5 has become official today. This is the successor to the Maimang 4 – and since that model went on sale outside of China as the Huawei G8, we assume the new handset might be known as the G9 in other countries. A G9 lite has already been outed, so this would complement that nicely in the company’s international portfolio.

The Maimang 5 has a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD touchscreen, a 16 MP rear camera with dual-LED flash and 4K video recording support, an 8 MP selfie cam, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 at the helm (with a 2 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU), 3 or 4GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of expandable storage, 4G, and a 3,340 mAh battery.
