The 1st Honor smartphone after the separation from Huawei! Is the Honor V40 with Google services also coming for the Western market?
After the trade dispute between Huawei and the US, not only Huawei suffered, but also the subsidiary Honor. However, Huawei sold the budget subsidiary in November, and since then there has been some guesswork as to how Honor will continue. Sources close to the company now say that Honor is planning its “comeback” in the spring.
In the fitness tracker segment for around $40, the Mi Band has been stealing the spotlight from the competition for several generations now. But the Honor Band has always been very strong and the Honor Band 6 finally gets a redesign, which makes it much more modern. So far it has only been presented in China.
Wi-Fi 6 routers have not yet arrived on the mass market, so it’s all the better that Honor is launching its own model for little money: the Honor 3 Wi-Fi 6 Router. What does a router with the new Wi-Fi 6 standard offer at this price?
Yes, finally! Huaweis subsidiary Honor is now also entering the tablet market. The Honor ViewPad 6 tablet with 5G & own stylus, should annoy Samsung and Apple.
Huawei‘s subsidiary Honor is probably also a common brand name for most people in this country. After Smartwatches, Laptops and the core business Smartphones, the first cordless vacuum cleaner is now to appear in the product range. For the equivalent of $183 (1299 Yuan) it is currently being financed through crowdfunding (only in China).
Despite the cancellation of MWC, Huawei and Honor have introduced new products, and the subsidiary has introduced the Honor 9X Pro, the first HMS smartphone. This means that it will be launched completely without Google services and only with Huawei Mobile Services.
The fact that Honor, as a subsidiary of Huawei, not only produces smartphones but also wearables, is nothing new. Strictly speaking, the Honor MagicWatch 2 is hardly new, but as an almost identical clone of the Huawei Watch GT2, it is still very interesting.
Before the annual flagship, the latest device of the V series is still appearing, in Europe it is the View series. The new Honor V30 is the successor of the Honor View 20/V20 and puts the focus on the cameras.
Last year the Honor 8X was probably one of the biggest competitors for Xiaomi in the middle class, meanwhile the successor was introduced. With the Honor 9X, Huaweis’s subsidiary wants to revive the middle class.
No other fitness tracker could annoy the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 as much as the Honor Band 4 last year. Now there is the Honor Band 5, which is supposed to compete with the Mi Band 4. Has the Honor Band 5 finally managed to integrate a music control system and to reach the battery life of the Mi Band 4?
As part of the official presentation of Honor Magic 2, the Huawei subsidiary has presented another gadget: Honor Watch Magic. This is a GPS fitness tracker in the classic watch design. But is the price of over $100 justified?
After the price-performance tip from last year, the Honor 10, the Honor 20 Pro is now coming onto the market with some delay. Can the new flagship with quad cameras on the back and in-display camera on the front justify the higher price?
The Honor 8X is – beside the Redmi Note 7 – probably the price performance tip within the range around $200. The biggest plus point compared to the Redmi competition is probably the support of NFC and Google Pay. But can the rest of the 8X also hold its own against the Note 7?
If you don’t want to switch to a cheap AirPod clone, the Honor FlyPods are the only real alternative of an established manufacturer. The true wireless stereo headphones of the Chinese manufacturer are, like the AirPods, half in-ear headphones. Find out how they compare to the original here!
The Red Magic by Nubia is not the only gaming smartphone that celebrated its premiere in 2018. Like almost every manufacturer, the Huawei subsidiary has also presented a new smartphone, which is aimed specifically at gaming enthusiasts. With Honor Play, the name says it all – you’d think.
Is this already the trend for 2019? Apparently the motto is: “The more megapixels, the better”. After Xiaomi has teased a smartphone with a 48 megapixel camera, the Honor View 20 with 48 megapixel sensor and in-display camera follows!
Shortly before the summer of 2018, the company’s flagship, Honor 10, was presented in London. More than half a year later, the Lite version was launched on the market. The Honor 10 Lite could occupy a good position in the middle class, even if it hardly differs from other models.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 has justifiably secured pole position among the Chinese fitness trackers, but the competition is not asleep. Honor Band 4 wants to push the Mi Band from the throne with the same functional range, but a bigger, sharper and above all colorful 0.95 inch AMOLED display. But is the endurance enough?
We have 2018 and slider smartphones feel like the big, new thing. The Oppo Find X has made a first attempt in this direction. The new Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has solved it rather classically. Now the next big smartphone manufacturer has presented his interpretation. The Honor Magic 2 offers more than just the slider mechanism.
