Huawei credits its triple rear camera on the P20 for boost in smartphone sales

China-based Huawei believes its innovations in the smartphone photography category has helped improve their sales drastically. Kevin Ho, Huawei’s president for its phone business, announced during his keynote speech at CES Asia in Shanghai that the company has shipped six million units of its P20 and P20 Pro worldwide. And that shipment of its phones are up by 81 percent when compared to the same 10 week period in 2017, when the P10 was launched. Shipments in China went up by 63 percent, while those outside the country jumped a significant 150 percent.

Ho attributes this significant gain to the triple rear camera on the P20 Pro. He claims that the innovations they’ve put into that flagship phone’s camera have “pushed up shipments of P20 both at home and abroad.” The P20 Pro features the world’s first triple camera system with a 40-megapixel RGB lens, a 20-megapixel monochrome lens, and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens.

Huawei’s Honor sub-brand outs what looks like a cheaper Huawei P20

 

It might seem like Huawei is cannibalizing itself through its sub-brand Honor. But if the prices of the new Huawei P20 are a bit too steep for you, Honor is an option you might want to check out. The Honor 10 brings a lot of the features of the P20 to the more budget-conscious user. It sports the same Kirin 970 octa-core processor, up to 6GB of RAM (the P20 only has 4GB of RAM), 128GB internal storage, and fast-charging 3,400mAh battery. It gets a 24-megapixel selfie camera, too. Where it differs with the P20 is in the dual rear camera setup. This features a 16-megapixel sensor paired with a 24-megapixel monochrome sensor. The P20 comes with the Leica-engineered 12-megapixel/20-megapixel combo.

It even has this shifting colored rear panel similar to the P20 Pro but Honor calls its version Phantom Blue. You get a notched LCD display on the Honor 10 as well and it’s a bit larger than the P20’s at 5.84 inches. You also get a fingerprint sensor on the chin of the phone. Pricing is the biggest differentiator here. The prices of the Honor 10 is €399 (approx. CA$600) for the 64GB version, €449 (approx. CA$670) for the 128GB version, and Rs. 33,000 for the 6GB/128GB version. No word on whether this phone is making its way to this side of world just yet.

Huawei developing virtual assistant that provides ‘emotional interactions’

Warner Bros.

If you’ve seen the 2013 film Her, you have a bit of an idea what Huawei is working on in the virtual assistant space. The Chinese company is said to be developing a new assistant that will “provide emotional interactions.” Huawei’s Vice President of Software Engineering Felix Zhang talked to CNBC about this. He said, “We want to provide emotional interactions. We think that, in the future, all our end users wish [that] they can interact with the system in the emotional mode. This is the direction we see in the long run.”

The company is hoping users would want to keep interacting with its assistant so they don’t feel as alone, similar to what happened in Her. Now, whether this is something users really want is probably the more important question. What do you think?
