Coming out of the MWC 2015, Huawei's first true smartwatch is a 1.4-inch (400 x 400) circular AMOLED wearable powered by the Android Wear platform and backed by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm APQ8026 processor. Its wristwatch-inspired metal-crowned interface is fronted by a sapphire crystal plate, adding a layer of scratch-resistance. Its specs also include a variety of fitness-oriented apps, 40 different watch faces, and a 300mAh battery. The Huawei Watch is available in Black, Silver, as well as Gold cases, and comes with either stainless steel or leather straps.
The 5-inch Honor Holly is a mid-range Android from Huawei featuring version 2.3 of their proprietary Emotion user interface. Its 720p display supports 3D game graphics and HD video streaming with the help of OTP color calibration. The 2000mAh battery that powers it up is also equipped with the Smart Power 2.0, promising to extend the expected battery life by more than 30%. Also included in its mid-range feature set is an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 16GB internal memory and a quad-core processor clocked in at 1.3GHz with 1GB worth of RAM to boot.
Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
Huawei's IFA unveiling comes with several previously seen features, but might still serve the phablet market well with its focus on performance. The Mate7's 4100mAh battery supports roughly 8 CPU cores of Huawei's Kirin 925 processor, with Mali-T628 graphics as well. It also borrows from the iPhone, coming in with its own security features built around a fingerprint sensor. Other high-end specs include the 6-inch FHD display, 13-megapixel camera and 5-megapixel selfie camera. The Emotion UI 3.0 also promises to keep its high-end experience simple.
Huawei's third IFA 2014 smartphone looks to be the lowest-specked, but still continues their Ascend G sub-series. This 5.5-inch phablet sports 13- and 5-megapixel cameras, packed with an array of features that probably aim to contend with that of Xperias from Sony and Galaxy models from Samsung. Its performance tells us that it settles for a mid-range seat, with a 1.2GHz quad-core engine (64-bit) and a 2GB RAM. Its 3000mAh battery power is quite decent, though. It also drags the resolution down to 720p, probably in order to retain the flagship look with a cheaper price tag.
The Huawei Ascend Y300II breaks off from the brand's usual feature set, as it operates on the Firefox OS v2.1, a platform that is mainly intended for low-end smartphones. Behind its 4-inch IPS screen is a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with a 512MB RAM and a 1730mAh battery to juice it up. Just like many smartphones in the rock-bottom price group, its internal memory is limited to 4GB, with support for up to 32GB of expansion via microSD. The Y300II comes with a 5-megapixel camera at the back and a 3-megapixel one for selfies up front.
A premium-tier smartphone that banks on an 8-core processor and dedicated GPU for supporting power-hungry apps that mid-level phones cannot. It also ramps up the usual RAM capacity to 3GB. With LTE becoming the global standard, Huawei is perhaps a step ahead, as the Honor 6 offers an up-to-300Mbps data rate. Its considerably slim body (7.5mm)is the result of a 6-layer high composite technology - only observed on a handful of other phones upon its release. Other features include a multi-functioned 13-megapixel BSI camera and their signature Emotion UI 2.3.
Continuing Huawei's Honor series is the 5.5-inch LTE-enabled Huawei Honor 4X. It is fitted with two cameras: a 13-megapixel one at the back and a 5-megapixel one for selfies. Its hardware includes a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with a 2GB RAM -- likely placing it among other mid- to high-end smartphones. Its internal memory caps off at 8GB, and can be expanded to up to 32GB using a TF card. Finishing it off is a 3000mAh battery capacity, which is relatively higher than what we expect out of a modestly-priced phablet.
The EE Kestrel, rumoredly manufactured by Huawei, came out as one of the most affordable LTE-capable devices on its release. It boasts speeds of up to 150Mbps, which is right on par with mid-level LTE models from more popular brands. It runs on a quad-core processor behind a 4.5-inch display, with a 5-megapixel camera on the back. It also has an 8GB internal memory capacity, doubling the usual 4GB for most entry- or mid-level devices. It comes with several plan options, depending on how you plan to use the phone - of course, all including 4G LTE in the package.
A high-tech Android 4.4 KitKat smartphone featuring several never-before-seen specs upon its 2014 release. It runs on thermal gel cooling, that presumably saves more energy than the ones found on most models (and Huawei says the handset will feel cooler to the hand). It also introduces the Ultra and Smart power management modes, promising that you will get the most out of the 2500mAh battery. The Ascend P7's 13-megapixel BSI camera (with an 8-megapixel front cam) and quad-core 1.8GHz processor also out-spec many other smartphones, probably securing its entry to the premium class.
Potentially one of the more enduring phablets in the market, the Ascend Mate2 supports up to 2.5 days of mixed usage (according to Huawei) on as single charge with its 4050mAh non-removable battery. With this capacity, it can also act as a power source for other mobile devices through a reverse charging feature. A 1.6GHz quad-core processor also helps with the heavy lifting, while the simplified Emotion UI 2.0 promises a lighter experience up front. Its pair of 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras also level, and even out-spec other phablets in the same price range.
