Huawei Nova 7i vs Redmi K30 vs Realme X2: Specs Comparison

Huawei just launched the Nova 7i: it is not a completely new device but it is just a rebranded version of the Huawei Nova 6 SE for markets outside of China. So you would get exactly the same specifications which you can consider midrange-class. But given that many people outside of China did not care about the Nova 6 SE since it was not for their market, we decided to compare it with other trending mid-rangers in order to give you a satisfying idea of what this handset is able to offer. We think there is nothing better than Redmi K30 and Realme X2 for such a specs comparison.

Huawei needs Google more than Google needs Huawei

It takes more than ambition and an aggressive approach to make money selling phones in the West. You need the right services and software.

Huawei makes some incredible phones. My somewhat limited exposure to the brand as a U.S. resident reinforces what everyone who has one tells me: they are one of the best phones you can buy. When any brand gets this kind of praise, it has to be pretty darn good products.

Unfortunately, because of other equipment Huawei makes, namely telecom gear and 5G base stations, the company has come under fire from the U.S government and now Huawei is unable to share or buy any technology from another company that does business in the United States. That means none of the closed source bits in Android that power Google's services.

Huawei patents foldable phone with six cameras and stylus support

Huawei has filed a patent for an upcoming foldable phone that packs quad rear cameras and offers stylus support. The patent, filed before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) last year, shows a foldable phone that folds inwards.

Alleged to be the schematic for Huawei Mate X2, the sketches reveal four rear cameras and an asymmetric foldable panel. The two selfie cameras are housed on a vertical strip that also doubles as a secondary display.

It is worth noting the patent schematics also reveal a stylus, and given the phone’s size, it will most likely have a slot to house the stylus. The design definitely looks innovative, but we might have to wait for it as Huawei already has the Mate XS foldable phone scheduled to launch later this year.

Huawei surpasses Apple in entire 2019 shipment ranking; Xiaomi, OPPO make top 5

Three of the major market research firms Counterpoint, Canalys and Strategy Analytics (SA) have all published their report showing the shipping estimates of the major smartphone companies. The data all seem to correspond with each other and shows Samsung retained its position as the number one brand in terms of smartphone shipment for the whole of 2019.

Huawei maintained its 2018 record by staying ahead of Apple to become the world’s second best selling smartphone manufacturer in 2019. This is especially surprising considering that the brand has been grappling with an obnoxious ban by the US government hinged on security concerns. Huawei shipped an estimated 240 million mobile phones, a tad higher than its entire shipment in 2018. On the other hand, Apple managed to corner 200 million units, representing a slight drop in shipment.

Huawei surpassed Apple in smartphone sales for 2019, trailing Samsung

Samsung lead the pack with nearly 300 million units sold.

What you need to know

Huawei took the second-place spot in the smartphone market from Apple in 2019.
It raked in sales of 238.5 million units, compared to Apple's 196.2 million.
The biggest winner, though, was Samsung, with 296.5 million shipments during the year.

Despite overwhelming pressure by the U.S., Huawei says it can handle anything else the Trump administration throws its way. And the numbers seem to bear that out.

Earlier estimates of Huawei's unit sales during 2019 pegged the number to an impressive 240 million. That estimate has now been corroborated by Counterpoint Research, one of the leading market research firms in the tech world.

The Hong Kong-based firm estimates that Huawei sold 238.5 million phones during 2019. Not only is that much better than the Chinese giant's own expectations following its addition to the U.S. Entity List, but the number also marks the first time Huawei has surpassed ..

HUAWEI nova 5T review: the flagship in disguise

HONOR announced the HONOR 20 in May 2019, and we did take a really close look at it in August. What HUAWEI is doing with the nova 5T is basically rebranding the HONOR 20, and putting it out there as a premium-mid-range offering.

This also allowed HUAWEI to shave off significant Dollars (Euros, in this case) of the HONOR 20, making it a much more attractive, inexpensive premium smartphone.

We’ve spent a whole month with the HUAWEI nova 5T, and this is our full review.

You can instantly tell, just by looking at the design and color choices (we’ve got the less exciting Dark Black version) that HUAWEI is aiming the nova 5T towards younger customers. Young, millennial, fashion-savvy is the target for this phone, and it does a good job at attracting glances. They’d probably go for the Crush Blue or Midsummer Purple option. While our unit is plain black, the other two options exhibit nice reflections.

At just 7.87 mm thickness, the nova 5T is a flat piece of glass, back and front..
