Huawei Announces Mate 8 With A 6-Inch 1080p Display, Android 6.0, And A 4000mAh Battery

Huawei's latest flagship phone is official, but you won't be able to get it in the US. That didn't stop Huawei from showing off the new Mate 8 at CES today. It will, however, launch in more than two dozen countries in the first wave starting now. Pricing will vary by region, but it won't be cheap. The base 32GB model is about €599 with a 64GB upgrade for €699. Maybe that'll seem worth it when you learn this phone has a massive 4000mAh battery.

Huawei Announces The MediaPad M2 10.0, Looks Like Samsung And Apple Had A Baby That Works With The Surface Pen

Look, I know that we do the Samsung vs. Apple comparisons a lot, but it's not that often we get to talk about what would happen if Samsung and Apple got together for a little late-night action and popped out a co-designed device. If you've ever wondered what that might look like, the Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 is probably a pretty accurate representation. And just for good measure, it has something that looks like a Surface Pen to go along with it. Pretty much every base has been covered here—at least Huawei isn't showing any bias.

All joking aside, it actually sounds a pretty decent tablet on paper…if you're still in the market for an Android tablet, anyway.

The Next Version Of Android Wear Is Being Tested On The Huawei Watch, And It Finally Activates The Speaker

Fair play to Huawei for including a speaker on its self-titled Android Wear watch long before the software actually supported it. That being said, I'm sure Huawei Watch owners are wondering when their expensive gadget will have all of its parts activated so they can stop carrying around an extra quarter-ounce of extraneous electronics. According to multiple sources, that speaker will be activated soon, specifically whenever Google gets around to issuing the next version of Android Wear's firmware.

A user on Reddit says that he or she is currently using a test build of Android Wear on the Huawei Watch, and that the speaker is active with the new software installed.

The Gold Nexus 6P, Exclusive To Japan At Launch, Is Coming To Indian Retailer Flipkart On December 21st

When the details of the Nexus 6P started to leak, several colors were spotted: aluminum, white, black, and gold. As it turns out, the gold-colored version was exclusive to the Japanese market. We never found out why the gold phone isn't available elsewhere - a gold option has been popular for flagship phones across most major manufacturers for several years now. Whatever the reason, customers in India will soon have a crack at the gold Nexus 6P, courtesy of online retailer Flipkart.

Manufacturer Huawei posted a teaser for the gold-colored 6P on its Facebook page, which indicates that it will be exclusive to Flipkart in the region.

Video: The Huawei Watch's New Customizable Watch Face Is Surprisingly Awesome

In the most recent update to the Huawei Watch, the company added a brand-new customizable face to the device. While you may note that there are plenty of watch face creation apps out there for Android Wear, Huawei's is a bit different. All of the customization happens on the watch itself, and the UI is dead simple - just pick and choose the elements you want, and you're off with a personalized layout.

While it's not the most robust customization we've seen for Android Wear, the simplicity and functionality of Huawei's tool is what really makes it shine. Anybody can figure this out, and it allows you to add just a touch of personal flare to your smartwatch if you find the built-in faces don't really suit you.

Huawei Unveils Its New Flagship, The Mate 8

You probably wouldn't guess it if you live in the United States or Europe, but Huawei is actually a pretty big brand in Asia. In China, the national manufacturer controlled 15.7 percent of the smartphone market share in Q2 2015 — more than either Apple or Samsung and just shy of Xiaomi's 15.9 percent. This alone accounts for a significant part of why it's the third largest smartphone vendor in the world, with that only set to improve as Huawei expands into more countries across Europe and the Americas.

The newly announced Mate 8 is the flagship Huawei hopes will lead that expansion, and is the successor to last year's Ascend Mate 7, on which Google based the Nexus 6P.
