Impressive gains this year behind Samsung and Apple
According to the latest estimates within the smartphone supply chain, China’s top-three vendors are expected to ship a combined total of 500 million devices in 2017, or roughly one third of all global smartphone shipments.
SK Hynix has joined Samsung with its ability to deliver LPDDR4 8GB memory for future phones and tablets. Fudzilla expects to see quite a few phones with 8GB or RAM in the high end market next year, but we think that 8GB is pure marketing and unnecessary for most phone tasks.
5-incher with curved body and rear dual-camera setup
Huawei has unveiled its love for curves by announcing the Honor Magic smartphone, with 5.09-inch AMOLED QHD screen, curved glass front and back, Kirin 950 SoC and rear dual-camera setup.
From the house of TSMC in 2017
The Kirin 960 is a 16nm SoC, that powered the Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro, and is quite powerful, but it seems that Huawei plans a Kirin 970 SoC made using the 10nm FinFET manufacturing process and with obviously faster performance at lower energy consumption.
Snapdragon 435, single rear camera
Next month, Huawei plans to add a more affordable version of the Honor 6X smartphone called the Honor 6S.
Huawei P8 and Mate S not on the list
Huawei has announced plans for its next big software rollout and bring Android Nougat to most of its phones. But two of its major recent flagships are not on the list.
Enemy of my enema
Chinese smartphone vendors are so worried that Apple is strong arming AMOLED suppliers to suck supply that they have formed their own consortium to fight it.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco did a little damage
Beancounters at Strategy Analytics have named Huawei as the world’s most profitable Android device maker – knocking Samsung off its throne.
Great phone but the Americans might not like it
Huawei wants to launch its latest smartphone, the Huawei Mate 9, in the US, but according to the Wall Street Journal it could find difficulties in getting consumers to adopt the brand.
Moving slowly toward the big table
Huawei managed to sell nine million of its P9 flagship phones. Since the company is currently the number three player in the total mobile market, this is not a bad result, but it definitely shows some space for improvement.
