Samsung devices have been banned from use by Chinese state officials.
We lift the lid on this year’s winners and losers so far, and take a look at emerging trends in the global smartphone arms race.
Android folks, what a wild ride this past week has been! IFA brought us ton of new devices, and many of them are really good. With the refined Note 4, the wild Note Edge, and the semi-bizarre Gear VR, Samsung showed why it’s the number one force in mobile hardware. Sony delivered more improvements to its Xperia lineup, and we really loved the amazingly thin and light 8-inch Tablet Z3 Compact. LG and Asus came with new and intriguing smartwatch designs, HTC went 64-bit with the Desire 820, Huawei went nuts (in a good way) with the Mate 7, and Motorola finally brought its 2014 lineup to light.
Huawei has revealed plans for a new Android Wear powered device, which it will release sometime in 2015.
The Ascend Mate 7 isn’t the only new device Huawei revealed at IFA, the mid-tier Ascend G7 also made an appearance. Now we go hands-on to give you a first look at the device.
Huawei has announced its first Qualcomm-powered 64-bit handset, the mid-range Ascend P7.
Huawei’s upcoming 6.1-inch Ascend Mate 7 has now been spotted in the wild.
Huawei is said to be releasing a sapphire version of their popular Ascend P7 smartphone. It will come in limited quantities, but is it worth your money?
In past years, IFA has been almost synonymous with the launch of the Note series, but this year we have lots of other cool stuff on tap. Here’s a brief preview of the news we expect to come out of Berlin next week.
Huawei stays relatively quiet, but it seems they know their business and aren’t afraid to tell it like it is when hit by the spotlight.
