[Deal Alert] Black Huawei Watch with black stainless steel band is down to $199.99 open box on B&H / $219.99 new on Amazon and Best Buy ($180+ off)

The Huawei Watch isn't new anymore, but it's still one of the best Android Wear smartwatches out there, both in looks and functionality. The black body/black stainless steel band combo is arguably one of the best that Huawei offers, but it's also been somewhat pricey. Now, though, you can pick one up for as low as $199.99.

[Deal Alert] Huawei Watch in Jewel/Pearl $220 at Amazon ($330 off)

This one is a huge price drop. Just a few days ago this was $550 on Amazon (although it has been down around $450 a few times, like back at the beginning of April), but right now Huawei's Jewel/Pearl model of their OG smartwatch is $220. Huawei's Android Wear device is one of the best from the last generation. The style might not be for everyone, but the price certainly is. And the deal is at Amazon with no 3rd party seller or code needed. The only disadvantage is a slight delay in shipping.

[Update: Instructions] Android Wear 2.0 is finally rolling out to the Huawei Watch

Android Wear 2.0 has been sort of available for a few months, although almost no watches were running it. Your best bet if you wanted AW2.0 was to buy one of the new LG watches from Google. Now, one of the most popular Android Wear devices of yesteryear is getting Wear 2.0. If you've got a Huawei Watch, you might want to charge it up for the (hopefully) impending update. If you are on the preview, it's probably already downloading.

Looks like Honor is honoring its promise, the 6X is supposedly getting Nougat sometime this month

When the Honor 6X launched earlier this year, you could say that we here at AP were unimpressed. Sure, the phone packed in a lot of good specs for $250, but it shipped with Marshmallow, a version of Android that was over a year old at that point (well, it still is). In March, Huawei's sub-brand launched a beta program for 6X owners to try out Nougat and the much improved EMUI 5 — the company promised that Android 7.0 would roll out in the first half of 2017. Looks like that may actually happen.

Lawsuit filed against Google and Huawei over Nexus 6P early shutdown issue and bootlooping

According to a press release from the law firm Chimicles & Tikellis, a class action lawsuit was filed against Google and Huawei at a federal court in the Eastern District of Texas last Friday. The full complaint text can be found here.

The complaint alleges two defects with the Nexus 6P smartphone. The first, that the phone may experience bootlooping, the second, severe and premature battery drain (also known as the early shutdown issue). We reported late last week - on the day of the filing, apparently - that the issue was being investigated for a potential class action by this same firm.

Huawei Watch, Moto 360 Gen 2, and other watches should get Android Wear 2.0 by end of April or late May

We're impatiently waiting for Android Wear 2.0 to roll to some of the most popular watches released: the second generation Moto 360 and the Huawei Watch. There are also other watches that still haven't received the update and weeks are passing by quickly without a hint of when exactly we should expect the new firmware to hit.

Android Wear support forums' community manager Ernest has posted an update a few hours ago explaining the situation with the different Wear watches and their update timelines. He reiterated the watches that have already received the update, but most importantly, he said that the remaining models should receive their updates by end of April or late May.

Huawei Mate 9 review addendum: Alexa is a flop, but it's still a great phone

Huawei used to avoid releasing high-end phones in the US, but no more. The Mate 9 was launched in the US several months ago, and it was announced as the very first phone to have Amazon's Alexa built in. However, that wasn't ready at launch, and Huawei didn't even know exactly when it would be available. Alexa finally rolled out to the Mate 9 several weeks ago, but Google sort of cut Amazon off at the knees by launching Assistant on the Mate 9 and many other phones while we were waiting for this update.

As I noted in the original Mate 9 review, this is a good phone—Huawei has really turned things around in the software, the battery life is killer, and the build quality is top notch.

The Honor 8 Pro is official with a Kirin 960, 5.7" QHD display, dual cameras, a 4,000mAh battery, and more

Huawei is off to a busy start this year. Not only did it put out the Honor 6X, a surprisingly good budget phone, and the P10 series, but now the company has unleashed the Honor 8 Pro upon the world. Also known as the Honor V9 in China, the slim Honor 8 Pro looks to be one of the best phones out of the Chinese giant's sub-brand yet.
