The Honor Magic is a curvy little smartphone with AI smarts, but it's only for China right now

At an event in China today, Huawei's Honor sub-brand announced the Honor Magic (not to be confused with the venerable HTC Magic). This device has the fewest corners of any phone in recent memory thanks to a curved AMOLED display and rounded chassis. Honor is also talking up this phone's AI capabilities and a new fast-charging technology.

The Huawei Honor 8 just made our list of the most wanted midrange phones of 2016 (between $250 and $500) because of its impressive specs at a price that can go down to $300 sometimes.

The Huawei Watch departs from the Google Store

With all the uncertainty, I don't imagine Android Wear smartwatches will be a hot item this holiday season. Some people are probably still willing to take a risk, but pickings are getting slim either way. Even though it launched more than a year ago, the Huawei Watch is still considered by many to be the best Android Wear device. It's no longer on sale in the Google Store, though.

[Deal Alert] Huawei's new MediaPad M3 tablet is already $60 off, down to $239 on Amazon

The MediaPad M3, Huawei's latest attempt to compete with mid-sized tablets in the iPad Mini niche, has only been officially available in the US for a week. But the tablet is already on sale, and by an impressive 20% no less. Amazon is selling the MediaPad M3 for $239, $60 off the retail price. That's not bad at all for a device with its specs, especially since competition in the premium Android tablet space (and in this smaller form factor) seems to be so thin these days.

[Deal Alert] Get Huawei's Honor 8 for $289.99 ($110 off) with a bunch of free stuff ($25 gift card, cases, earphones, and more) from Newegg

The Honor 8 suffers an affliction that many Chinese phones are prone to: excellent hardware let down by poorly-made software. However, thanks to a beta of EMUI 5 that supposedly improves the software a bunch, the phone may be worth considering now - especially with this Black Friday deal. If a $110 discount on both the 32GB and 64GB models wasn't enough, Newegg is also throwing in the most amount of things I've ever seen bundled with a phone.
