Huawei surpasses Apple to be the Second Largest Smartphone Brand

In the latest research conducted by Counterpoint’s Market Pulse, HUAWEI has surpassed Apple in global smartphone sales consistently for June and July 2017. With the sales in August looking strong for the Chinese vendor as well, a hat-trick for HUAWEI could be possible. Peter Richardson – Research Director of Counterpoint states: “This is a significant milestone for Huawei, the largest Chinese smartphone brand with a growing global presence. It speaks volumes for this primarily network infrastructure vendor, on how far it has grown in the consumer mobile handset space in the last three to four years. The global scale Huawei has been able to achieve, can be attributed to its consistent investment in R&D and manufacturing – coupled with aggressive marketing and sales channel expansion.” Talking about future prospects and other findings, Counterpoint’s Associate Director – Tarun Pathak states: “The growth of Chinese brands is an important trend which no player in the mobile ecosystem can ignore. Chinese brands are growing swiftly, not only because of smartphone design, manufacturing capability and rich feature sets – but also by out-smarting and out-spending rivals in sales channels, go-to-market and marketing promotion strategies.” Mr Pathak further stated: “Chinese vendors have become as equally important as Samsung or Apple to the global supply chain, application developers and distribution channels, as they continue to grow in scale more rapidly than the incumbent market share leaders.” Counterpoint Technology Market Research is a global research firm specializing in Technology products in the TMT industry.

Huawei’s quality & safety ensured by the highest standards

Huawei’s quality & safety ensured by the highest standards

HUAWEI Consumer Business Group, a brand known for putting quality at the forefront of their product development strategy, recently shed light on its quality standards. HUAWEI goes out-of-the-way to ensure that all its products are extremely safe to use and provide the highest quality. Earlier in August 2015, the ambient light sensor (ALS) from ROHM in Awn 4, MateS and Honor 7i had a failure rate of 0.1%. Maintaining HUAWEI’s reputation for quality, all of the smartphones using that batch of sensors were sent back for rework. Even if the ALS fails, the phones can still perform almost all the functions but regardless of the huge cost incurred, HUAWEI still called back all devices. When we talk of HUAWEI – it is the only global brand today, with no record of any exploding-device. HUAWEI has effectively and consistently kept ‘user-safety’ at the forefront of all its operations. No product with even the remotest possibility of posing any health-hazard is ever approved or distributed among the HUAWEI users. Extensive stress-testing is done to ensure maximum safety protocols. “Quality is the integrity and lifeline of Huawei. Huawei employs the craftsmen’s spirit’ to measure its products and ensure zero defects.” said Richard Yu, CEO of HUAWEI’S Consumer Business Group. To ensure the quality of HUAWEI Health App 2.1, it underwent numerous tests by the testing crew. To guarantee the tracking precision, running tests were held in multiple cities. They ran over 1,000km, equivalent to 24 marathons. To guarantee the heigh tracking precision, the crew climbed up and down over 1,200 stories of stairs, equivalent to climbing up the Burj Dubai on foot for 7 times. To guarantee the precision of step count, the testing crew walked over three million steps covering a total distance of over 2,000km, equivalent to walking back and forth for 10 times between Shenzhen and Guangzhou. HUAWEI has also opened the doors to its “Device-Testing facilities”, in order to boost the consumers’ confidence in its products. Consumers can now be sure that maximum quality is ensured through due diligence for each one of their...

Secret behind the smoothness of Huawei P10 and P10 Plus

Secret behind the smoothness of Huawei P10 and P10 Plus

Android has long been criticized for stuttering as time goes by. To tackle the problem, HUAWEI has joint hands with Google to conduct an in-depth optimization based on Android 7.0 by introducing AI. Meanwhile, EMUI5.1 and Kirin 960 have been further integrated and optimized to give full play to advantages of both software and hardware, thus delivering long-term smooth user experience. Machine Learning & Ultra Memory Technology, Guaranteeing P10& P10 plus Smooth Operation EMUI5.1 adopts AI in order to achieve intelligent perception through machine learning. By learning users habit, it will accurately predict users behavior, automatically allocates CPU, GPU, IO and other resources for apps. In this way, apps can be booted up rapidly with no more lag experience. By perceiving demands of apps for resources, EMUI 5.1 combined with Kirin 960 can allocate CPU, GPU, memory and other resources accordingly instead of fair competition between apps so that hardware resources are truly allocated based on priorities and experience demand. After 18 months of continuous use simulating heavy users, the phone still operates smoothly. Kirin 960 CPU, a perfect combination of high performance and low power consumption. ARM big.LITTLE “dual quad-core” architecture is adopted by equipping the phone with four Cortex-A73 high-powered cores and four A53 lower-powered cores, letting the two sets of cores dealing with computation tasks suitable for them separately. For example,booting up a navigation app will be the responsibility of the faster set of cores while minor tasks such as making phone calls and sending text messages will be done by the lower-powered set of cores. In this way, the two sets of cores work together for greater performance,faster speed and lower power consumption. HUAWEI has taken the lead in supporting new generation Vulkan standard graphics interfaces based on Android 7.0 so as to remove the limit of CPU on GPU and enhance GPU’s performance. Draw call overhead has been reduced remarkably and multi-thread performance improved for faster rendering, fully tapping the potential of octa-core GPU. GPU’s performance up by 180%, power efficiency by 40% and image processing speed by 400% EMUI5.1 system coupled with HUAWEI Ultra Memory technology supports real-time defragmentation, intelligent memory compression, automatic memory recovery, etc. As a result, apps are booted up 30% faster compared with the last generation. Memory compression ratio is over 50% and kernel algorithm is enhanced by 20%, delivering lasting smooth experience. Combined with Kirin 960, the overall performance is boosted by a large margin and the system is able to operate speedily even with multiple apps operating at the same...

Android O – New Features revealed at Google I/O 2017

Android O – New Features revealed at Google I/O 2017

Google I/O 2017 comes to a close and as expected we got to know more about the upcoming Android O, though we still don’t know exactly what Google going to name its new Android operating system. At Google I/O, Android’s Vice President of Engineering Dave Burke took the stage to talk about some of the upcoming release’s biggest features. They’re user facing stuff falls under something they’re calling Fluid Experiences. Picture-in-Picture Because traditional multi-window techniques don’t translate to well to mobile devices (they’re clunky, hard to navigate, and not quick enough to enable on-the-go), Google is introducing Picture-in-Picture. Just like on your TV, videos on YouTube or even specific apps like Maps navigation or Google Duo will automatically be shrunken down into a tiny window when you press the home button. This allows you to still see what’s going on, while getting stuff done in other apps. Notification Dots Notifications on Android are about to get even better thanks to a feature Google is calling Notification Dots. They essentially work much the same way as Badge Icons on iOS (only they’re not numbered) and place a little dot on an app icon to let you know when you have a notification. Long pressing the app icon will show you the most recent notification and you can swipe it away in the notification tray to remove it. Autofill with Google Autofill now extends into apps themselves, with Google being able to populate text fields — be it passwords, addresses, or anything else — away from the Chrome web browser. For instance, if Google knows your login info on Twitter.com, it can also autofill this info in the Twitter app. It’s opt-in, so you its up to you to enable it. Smart Text Selection Copy & paste is getting supercharged in Android O. It’s now intelligent and can recognize phone numbers, addresses, or even the names of businesses, automatically highlighting them with a long press so you don’t have to fiddle around as much with those tiny handles. The best part is once highlighted, Smart Text Selection will suggest apps to use to open that information be it Google Maps for addresses, Dialer for a phone number, or Gmail for an email address. Since it’s all done on the device, so no data leaves your phone. Android O is faster This was more part of Vitals, Android features that look to keep your phone secure, healthy, and optimized for performance. Google says they’ve done a ton of stuff behind the scenes to ensure apps are 2x faster than they were in Nougat. This is thanks to extensive changes they’ve done to Android’s runtime. What’s more, you’ll...
