Over 10 million of flagship P9 and P9 Plus
Huawei has announced that it managed to ship over 10 million of its P9 and P9 Plus flagship smartphones, pushing its total shipments well over the expected 140 million target.
Fingerprint sensor and possible wireless charging
Rumors regarding Huawei's upcoming P10 flagship smartphone have been showing up for quite some time and a fresh set of information suggests it will have a dual-curved screen as well as a fingerprint sensor and wireless charging.
For one quad-core cluster
Huawei's own Kirin 960 SoC, which powered both the Mate 9 and the Mate 9 Pro smartphones, was quite a piece of tech but the upcoming Kirin 970 will be even more impressive, with cores running as high as 3.0GHz.
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.
