No Google, no worry: HUAWEI brings new phones and more to IFA 2022 (Updated)
Update: September 5, 2022 (1:59 AM ET): We’ve updated the original article below with the prices of the new HUAWEI hardware line launched in Europe. Read on for all the latest.
Original article: September 2, 2022 (7:40 AM ET): HUAWEI took to IFA 2022 — the ongoing tech fest in Berlin — to announce a range of new devices for the international markets. The Chinese tech firm has suffered quite a blow since its US ban. Once a smartphone powerhouse globally, HUAWEI is now fighting for a slice of the pie even in its home country. That said, the tech maker is still very much inclined towards launching new phones internationally, even though they don’t come with Google services.
Its latest set of devices is the HUAWEI Nova 10 series comprising the standard Nova 10 and the Nova 10 Pro. The phones were launched in China in July but are now making their European debut in Berlin.
To stand out, HUAWEI has flipped the script on the two handsets. Both of them feature a 60MP ultrawide camera on the front. Yes, you read that right. Get ready for super selfies. The Pro model features another 8MP selfie camera for portrait shots.
Elsewhere, the Nova 10 and 10 Pro are powered by the Snapdragon 778 4G chip and house a triple rear camera system including a 50MP main + 8MP ultrawide + 2MP depth camera setup.
The vanilla model gets a 4,000mAh battery with 66W charging, while the Pro variant boasts 100W fast charging and a 4,500mAh battery.
The phones will be equipped with EMUI 12 software internationally.
The HUAWEI Nova 10 will start at €549 (~$542), while the Nova 10 Pro will cost €699 (~$690). Both devices will retail in a single configuration — 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
HUAWEI MateBook X Pro refresh
HUAWEI also took to IFA 2022 to showcase the new MateBook X Pro which costs €2,199 (~$2,172). The laptop has been refreshed with 12th Gen Intel Core processors and features a 14.2-inch 90Hz FullView display that boasts what HUAWEI calls its “most advanced touchpad ever found on a MateBook.”
The Windows 11 laptop also gets a new HUAWEI Shark Fin Fan cooling system, 16GB of RAM, Up to 1TB NVMe PCIe SSD storage, a 60Wh battery, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-C ports, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. You can check out more specifications of the MateBook X Pro here.
HUAWEI MatePad Pro 11
Meanwhile, the latest MatePad Pro is an 11-inch OLED tablet with a 120Hz refresh rate. It was unveiled in China last month and comes in both Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 and Snapdragon 888 variants. HUAWEI claims it’s the lightest 11-inch tablet in the market, weighing 449g.
Other specs of the MatePad Pro include a dual rear camera setup comprised of a 13MP primary shooter and an 8MP wide-angle lens, a 16MP selfie shooter, an 8,300mAh battery, six speakers, and four mics.
The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 11 will be available from September 30, starting from €649 (~$641).
HUAWEI Watch D
Coming to the HUAWEI Watch D — the wearable was announced earlier this year and is now making its way to Europe as a certified medical device for ECG analysis. It can also measure blood pressure and other regular health metrics such as heart rate and blood oxygen.
Specs-wise, you get a 1.64-inch AMOLED color display, IP68 water resistance, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth 5.1, and up to seven days of battery life with typical usage. The smartwatch costs €399 (~$394).
