HUAWEI Y9s vs HONOR 9X Comparison : 48 MP vs 48 MP!

The resemblance of the HUAWEI Y9s to the HONOR 9X is so remarkable, we decided to compare them for those who are wondering which model to get!

 

HUAWEI Y9s vs HONOR 9X Comparison : 48 MP vs 48 MP!

The HUAWEI Y9s and the HONOR 9X are remarkably alike – both offering 48 MP photography on the cheap!

However, as much as they may look alike, there are still some differences between the two smartphones…

Basic Design : Same

Both HUAWEI Y9s and HONOR 9X use the same pop-up 16 MP selfie camera, with a 6.59-inch notch-free display.

There are some minor differences in dimensions and weight, but they are basically the same in this respect.

Platform : Depends On Variant

The HUAWEI Y9s uses the same Kirin 710F as the HONOR 9X Malaysia Edition. The HONOR 9X Global Edition, on the other hand, is powered by the newer Kirin 810.

RAM + Storage : Depends On Variant

Both the HUAWEI Y9s and the HONOR 9X Malaysia Edition come with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

The HONOR 9X Global Edition, on the other hand, is available in 4 GB or 6 GB RAM options, and 64 GB or 128 GB storage options.

Rear Cameras : Depends On Variant

The HUAWEI Y9s has the same triple-camera setup as the HONOR 9X Malaysia Edition. The HONOR 9X Global Edition lacks their 8 MP ultra-wide angle camera.

Connectivity : Depends On Variant

Both the HUAWEI Y9s and the HONOR 9X Malaysia Edition support WiFi-N, Bluetooth 4.2 and 4G LTE Cat13 uploads and Cat12 downloads.

The HONOR 9X Global Edition, on the other hand, supports WiFi-AC, Bluetooth 5.0 as well as 4G LTE Cat18 uploads and Cat21 downloads.

Fingerprint Sensor : Depends On Variant

The HUAWEI Y9s and HONOR 9X Global Edition come with a side fingerprint sensor, integrated into the Power button.

The HONOR 9X Malaysia Edition, on the other hand, uses a rear fingerprint sensor.

Battery + Charging : Same Battery, Different Fast Charging

Both HUAWEI Y9s and HONOR 9X come with the same 4,000 mAh battery, but differ in their fast charging support.

The HUAWEI Y9s only support 10 watt fast charging, while the HONOR 9X models support 18 watt fast charging.

Price : Same!

Here in Malaysia, the HUAWEI Y9s and HONOR 9X Malaysia Edition are priced at just RM 999 / ~S$326 / ~USD239 / ~£185 / ~A$353!

HONOR 9X | HONOR 9X Pro : Everything You Need To Know!

The HONOR 9X and HONOR 9X Pro smartphones promise to deliver 48 MP photography on the cheap.

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the HONOR 9X and HONOR 9X Pro, and how they compare against the HONOR 8X!

 

HONOR 9X | HONOR 9X Pro

Released just over a year after the HONOR 8X, the HONOR 9X and HONOR 9X Pro promise a few nice improvements, with a pop-up camera design. Let’s take a closer look!

Pop-Up Camera + Slightly Larger Display

The HONOR 9X and HONOR 9X Pro smartphones join the pop-up camera fad, just to squeeze out the display notch. Together with a slightly larger 6.59-inch display, HONOR eked out a 91% screen-to-body ratio.

The pop-up camera takes about a second to extend and retract, which may be problematic if you need to quickly snap a selfie. It sports the same 16 MP sensor, but with a smaller f/2.2 aperture.

Triple Rear Cameras

The biggest upgrade is, arguably, the 8 MP ultra-wide camera – available only in the HONOR 9X Pro – it offers a more dramatic viewpoint, especially for architectural or scenery shots.

The headline 48 MP main camera – available in both models – looks nice on paper, but defaults to 12 MP for better image quality. Unless you manually switch to the 48 MP mode, the HONOR 8X actually has a higher resolution 20 MP camera.

The last “camera” is a 2 MP depth sensor that captures depth information to help the main camera differentiate the subject from its background, to deliver more accurate software bokeh effects.

Same Platform, In A New Package

Both models run on the Kirin 810, which is the replacement for the Kirin 710 platform used by the HONOR 8X., and the Kirin 710F used in the HONOR 9X Malaysia Edition.

Specifications Kirin 810 Kirin 710 / Kirin 710F
Process Technology 7 nm 12 nm
Processor 2 x ARM Cortex-A76 (2.27 GHz)
6 x ARM Cortex-A55 (1.55 GHz)
4 x ARM Cortex-A73 (2.2 GHz)
4 x ARM Cortex-A53 (1.7 GHz)
Graphics Processor ARM Mali-G52 MP6 ARM Mali-G51 MP4
4G LTE UL : Cat18 (200 Mbps)
DL : Cat21 (1.4 Gbps)
UL : Cat13 (150 Mbps)
DL : Cat12 (600 Mbps)
Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2.4 + 5 GHz) 802.11b/g/n (2.4 GHz only)
802.11a/ac (5 GHz only)
Bluetooth Bluetooth 5.0 Bluetooth 4.2

The Kirin 810 offers two faster ARM Cortex-A76 cores with six low-power ARM Cortex-A55 cores, and a faster six-core ARM Mali-G52 MP6 GPU.

In addition, the Kirin 810 is fabricated on the 7 nm process technology, which means it runs cooler and uses less power than the Kirin 710 or Kirin 710F.

Side Fingerprint Sensor

Unlike the HONOR 9X Malaysia Edition, both HONOR 9X and HONOR 9X Global Edition feature a side fingerprint sensor.

Larger Battery + USB Type C Port

Both models come with a slightly larger 4,000 mAh battery – just 250 mAh (6.7%) more than the HONOR 8X.

The big upgrade though comes in the form of the USB 2.0 Type C port. It still charges at 18 watts, but at least it is bidirectional!

HONOR Band 5 To Add SpO2 + Remote Music Control!

HONOR will be adding SpO2 monitoring and remote music control to the HONOR Band 5!

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about these two new features for the HONOR Band 5!

 

HONOR Band 5 To Add SpO2 + Remote Music Control!

Here is the short version of this story :

HONOR will introduce an OTA (Over-The-Air) update on 29 September 2019, which will introduce SpO2 monitoring and remote music control to the HONOR Band 5.

With this update, HONOR is hoping that consumers will consider the Band 5 to be more than just a fitness tracker.

SpO2 Monitoring In The HONOR Band 5

SpO2, which HONOR wrongly calls pulse oxygen saturation, is short for peripheral oxygen saturation.

It is an estimate of how much oxygen there is in your blood, measured using pulse oximetry.

With the 29 September OTA update, you will be able to monitor your SpO2 :

  1. Select the Blood Oxygen Monitoring option
  2. Click to start measuring your SpO2

Now, HONOR is clear to point out that this SpO2 monitoring feature is NOT certified, and is thus “not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease“, and should only be used for “personal reference“.

We would like to highlight this, because HONOR’s normal SpO2 values of 90% to 100% is too loose.

  • A healthy individual should have a SpO2 value between 96% and 99%.
  • If your SpO2 value drops below 95%, you should consider medical attention.
  • You should definitely seek medical attention if SpO2 falls below 90%.

Remote Music Control Using The HONOR Band 5

Finally, the HONOR Band 5 will receive the ability to remotely control music on your smartphone with the 29 September OTA update.

After you turn on the Music Control option in the Huawei Health app, you will be able to use the HONOR Band 5 to view and control your favourite music app!

The new remote music control capability will support a wide range of music apps like Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube, Shazam, HUAWEI Music. It will work with any Android smartphone, as well as they are running Android 5.0 or above.

 

How To Get The HONOR Band 5 OTA Update

From 29 September 2019 onwards, you can download and install the OTA update that adds SpO2 monitoring and remote music control using these steps :

[adrotate group=”2″]
  1. Open the HUAWEI Health app.
  2. Tap on the Check For Updates option.
  3. The HONOR Band 5 will update and restart itself automatically.
  4. The HUAWEI Health app will also update and restart itself.

Once they are both updated, the HUAWEI Health app will be version 10.0.1.011, and your Band 5 will be running firmware version 1.1.0.93.

HONOR 20 Pro Icelandic Frost : Cool Colour For A Hot World!

After a preview launch in June, the HONOR 20 Pro went on sale in August 2019. But guess what – the HONOR 20 Pro is now available in a new Icelandic Frost colour option!

Now, we were not invited to this very exclusive launch, but from what we heard, the new HONOR 20 Pro Icelandic Frost is so cool, it’s just what we need for this hot, hot world!

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the HONOR 20 Pro Icelandic Frost model!

 

The HONOR 20 Pro Icelandic Frost

The HONOR 20 Pro comes with a large 6.26-inch LPTS display, and runs on the HUAWEI Kirin 980 mobile SoC.

It originally launched in four colour options – Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black in Malaysia, with Phantom Black and Phantom Blue available in other countries.

Until yesterday… when HONOR unveiled to their media friends, the new HONOR 20 Pro Icelandic Frost model!

Memory + Storage

The HONOR 20 Pro Icelandic Frost (Price Check) comes with 8 GB of LPDDR4x memory and 256 GB of internal storage.

Cameras

The HONOR 20 Pro Icelandic Frost (Price Check) comes with a 32 MB front camera, and a quad camera system at the back.

  • A 48 MP main camera with f/1.4 aperture and OIS capability
  • An 8 MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 and OIS
  • A 16 MP super-wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture
  • A 2 MP macro camera with f/2.4 aperture

The 48 MP main camera on both smartphones use the Sony IMX586 image sensor, and defaults to 12 MP because this allows for better image quality, thanks to the larger “combined” pixel size of 1.6 µm.

Battery

The HONOR 20 Pro Icelandic Frost (Price Check) has a 4,000 mAh battery, and supports 22.5 watt fast charging.

According to their press release, the Icelandic Frost colour was “inspired by the magnificence of Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon in Iceland – capturing the wonders of the glacier lagoon where icebergs glisten in the sunset, making the smartphone shine like a diamond“.

Well, we did not check it out in person, but we can tell from the photo that HONOR was not lying about how shiny it is!

Look at that mirror finish! So shiny you can use it to reflect the sun’s glare and combat climate change!

Seriously though – it’s so shiny, it doubles as a mirror when you need to apply your make up, or to find out if you have a stalker…

In this article, we will explain the HUAWEI Trump ban, and what it means to HUAWEI and to you, the customer.

 

The HUAWEI Trump Ban Timeline Updated!

The US government’s distrust of HUAWEI goes back many years, and only grew as HUAWEI became one of China’s biggest and arguably, most visible global companies with over $100 billion in revenue and over 180,000 employees worldwide.

Who Does The HUAWEI Trump Ban Affect?

The HUAWEI Trump ban covers both HUAWEI and its sub-brand, HONOR. As it so happens, HONOR is launching their HONOR 20 smartphone today.

Together with the success of their P30 and P30 Pro smartphones, the ban could not come at a worst time.

 

What Exactly Does The HUAWEI Trump Ban Do?

Many pundits wrongly quoted Trump’s executive order as the basis for the Google and other US companies suspending supplies to HUAWEI. That is only partly true.

His executive order does not mention HUAWEI at all. In fact, it actually applies to every company listed in the US Entity List, which is over 270 pages long!

It basically prohibits “any acquisition, importation, transfer, installation, dealing in, or use of any information and communications technology or service (transaction)” by “any person… subject to the jurisdiction of the United States” to “persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of a foreign adversary“.

It was really the US Commerce Department’s action of adding HUAWEI (and its 68 affiliates) to the Entity List that forced US companies to stop doing business with HUAWEI.

Even without Trump’s executive order, US companies are generally prohibited from doing business with companies listed in the Entity List. They will have to apply for a licence to export products to those entities.

 

The HUAWEI Trump Ban Effects

Google

Google rescinded HUAWEI’s Android licence, as well as access to Google Play services and the Play Store. But what does that mean?

  • Current HUAWEI and HONOR devices that run on Android and were launched on, or before 16 May 2019 will continue to have access to Google Play services, and the Google Play Store..
  • HUAWEI and HONOR devices launched from 17 May 2019 onwards will not have access to Android, Google Play services, or Google Play Store.

  • HUAWEI and HONOR will continue to receive Android software updates and patches until 19 August 2019.

In other words, if you own a HUAWEI or HONOR smartphone that was launched before 16 May 2019, you have nothing to worry about… at least until August 2019.

ARM

The suspension of business between ARM and HUAWEI has no real effect in the short to medium-term, because HUAWEI can continue to manufacture existing and completed designs.

Read our full report : The HUAWEI ARM Business Suspension – How Bad Is This?

Processor Suppliers : Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom

HUAWEI has long worked on creating their own mobile SoCs, like their flagship-class Kirin 970 and Kirin 980. They have been pretty successful in this regard – all of their top smartphones run on Kirin processors.

They do not have a replacement for the Intel processors that power their MateBook laptops. However, they have apparently prepared for this eventuality by stockpiling 3 months worth of chips.

Memory Suppliers : Micron, Infineon

Fortunately for HUAWEI, most DRAM manufacturers are not US companies, or subject to US law. Whereas Micron (a US company) can no longer supply HUAWEI with memory chips, there are other DRAM companies that can make up the shortfall… including their competitor, Samsung.

Tech Organisations : WiFi, Bluetooth, SD New!

Initially, HUAWEI was quietly but unceremoniously booted from the Wi-Fi Alliance, the Bluetooth SIG and the SD Association. But two weeks later, their memberships were quietly restored. Read our full reports :

Perplexingly, the IEEE announced and retracted their ban on HUAWEI scientists and engineers serving as peer reviewers and editors in just four days.

Read our full report : The IEEE Reverses HUAWEI Ban After Just 4 Days!

 

How Does The HUAWEI Trump Ban Affect YOU?

If you own a HUAWEI or HONOR smartphone sold on or before 16 May 2019, you have NOTHING to worry about.

  • Your HUAWEI or HONOR smartphone will continue to work normally
  • You will continue to have access to Google Play services, and the Google Play Store.
  • You will continue to receive updates and security patches

If you are planning to purchase a future HUAWEI or HONOR smartphone, you should wait and see.

  • Despite the ban, HUAWEI still has access to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).
  • They can still produce smartphones that run on Android, but won’t be able to install Google Play services, the Google Play Store, or apps by US companies like YouTube and Facebook.
  • HUAWEI has been working on its own mobile operating system, HongMeng OS, which is said to be undergoing trials right now.
  • Future HUAWEI smartphones may run on HongMeng OS and their own slew of apps, but there will be a dearth of third-party apps, at least initially.
  • If the ban persists, HUAWEI will likely be forced to ship future smartphones with stock Android and HUAWEI apps to replace Google Play services.

 

What About New Devices?

The partial licence from the US Commerce Department only permits “service and support” for “existing” devices that were “available to the public on or before May 16, 2019“.

HUAWEI and its affiliates can create and sell new devices. However, they will not be covered by the temporary licence, and therefore…

  • they cannot have Google Play services or Play Store, or any US apps like YouTube and Instagram, installed
  • they are not entitled to Android software updates either

That said, US companies or companies that use substantial US technologies can apply to the US Commerce Department for special licences to sell to HUAWEI. As of July 2019, over 50 applications were submitted for consideration.

 

How Will This Affect HUAWEI’s Business?

This is, no doubt, a really serious problem for HUAWEI. Losing the ability to include Google services will be detrimental to the success of future devices.

The disruption of their supply chain will start to bite if the ban persists beyond three months – that’s when their stockpile runs out. They will also lose the ability to support existing customers with software patches.

However, the issuance of the temporary licence, just days after listing HUAWEI as a foreign adversary and a national security threat, signals that the HUAWEI Trump ban is just another bargaining chip in the US-China trade war.

In all likelihood, Trump is using the HUAWEI ban to force China to accept his terms for a trade deal. He badly needs a face-saving win after numerous failures in recent months.

 

Why This Is Bad For The Global Economy + Security

President Trump’s persistent pressure on HUAWEI is forcing a decoupling of the Chinese and American economies. This is bad for the global economy, as well as global security.

The intertwining of US and Chinese economies is a form of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) that was once guaranteed by nuclear weapons.

Photo Credit : News.com.au

But with an erratic US President cutting off supply to US products and technology essential for their companies, China will continue to turn inwards to insulate their economy, even adopting a form of economic Juche.

The more their economies decouple, the more the US loses the ability to engage China positively on a variety of geopolitical issues. In fact, it may eventually lead to an outright Cold War between the US and China, if not military confrontation.

HONOR 20 Pro Price + Offers For Malaysia CONFIRMED!

For those who are wondering if the HONOR 20 Pro is ever coming to Malaysia, good news! It will go on sale very soon, with a slew of great offers!

Here is everything you need to know about the HONOR 20 Pro launch price and offers for Malaysia!

 

HONOR 20 Series Key Features

Both the HONOR 20 Pro and HONOR 20 have the same 6.26-inch LPTS display, and run on the same HUAWEI Kirin 980 mobile SoC.

They too have the same 32 MP front camera, and the same colour options – Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black in Malaysia, with Phantom Black and Phantom Blue available in other countries.

They differ in three main areas, specifically…

Memory + Storage

The HONOR 20 has 6 GB of LPDDR4x memory and 128 GB of internal storage, with while the Pro version comes with 8 GB of LPDDR4x memory and 256 GB of internal storage.

Rear Cameras

Both devices feature a quad camera system at the back. However, there are quite big differences :

  • The HONOR 20 has a 48MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, while the Pro version features a wider, brighter f/1.4 aperture and adds OIS capability.
  • The HONOR 20 has a 2MP depth sensor, instead of the Pro version’s 8MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 and OIS.
  • They both have the same 16MP super-wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture.
  • They both have the same 2MP macro camera with f/2.4 aperture.

The 48 MP main camera on both smartphones use the Sony IMX586 image sensor, and defaults to 12 MP because this allows for better image quality, thanks to the larger “combined” pixel size of 1.6 µm.

Battery

The HONOR 20 has a 3,750 mAh battery, while the Pro version has a slightly larger 4,000 mAh battery. They both support 22.5 watt fast charging.

Vapour Launch No More!

At that time, it was a vapour launch, because none of the phones were made available for sale… thanks to the Trump ban.

On 13 April, HONOR Malaysia Country Manager George Zhao sent us a handwritten note with a special voucher.

Based on the note and voucher, we confirmed with a source that the HONOR 20 would start in their official store and retail stores beginning 21 June 2019!

HUAWEI Outsmarts SD + microSD Ban With NM Card! 2.0

HUAWEI has just been removed as a member of the SD Association, because of the Trump ban. But they got an ace up their sleeves this time – their NM Card format!

Find out how the HUAWEI NM Card format lets them bypass the SD and microSD ban, and what else HUAWEI can do moving forward!

Updated @ 2019-05-31 : The SD Association quietly restored HUAWEI as a member. Seriously.

Originally posted @ 2019-05-25

 

What SD + microSD Ban?

The HUAWEI Trump ban keeps expanding its reach. Even the international SD Association has been forced to remove HUAWEI as a member.

This prevents HUAWEI and HONOR from making and selling any products that use the SD standards. Effectively, all future HUAWEI and HONOR smartphones can no longer be manufactured with microSD support.

 

What About Current Smartphones?

Don’t worry! Your HUAWEI and HONOR smartphones will continue to work normally with microSD cards.

These actions by the US Department of Commerce and the SD Association only apply to HUAWEI and HONOR smartphones that have not been released by 15 May 2019 onwards.

Recommended Reading : The HUAWEI Trump Ban – Everything You Need To Know!

 

NM Card To The Rescue!

HUAWEI now seem absolutely prescient when they released their own NM Card format together with the HUAWEI Mate20 smartphones last year.

The NM Card, or the HUAWEI Nano Memory Card in full, is 45% smaller than the microSD card. Precisely designed to mimic the shape and size of a nano SIM card, it allows for a more compact hybrid SIM tray design.

But more importantly, in the context of the Trump ban, the NM Card is a HUAWEI standard, and not a SD Association standard.

 

What Are Their Options?

Option A : Switch To NM Card

Thanks to their foresight in creating the NM Card standard, HUAWEI can easily replace microSD card slots with NM Card slots in their future smartphones.

Now, to be certain, the NM Card is neither cheap nor ubiquitous. The only company making and selling them is HUAWEI.

Hence, they have so far been introduced only in their flagship smartphones, like the HUAWEI Mate20, HUAWEI Mate20 ProHUAWEI Mate20 X, HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI P30 Pro smartphones.

We expect HUAWEI to continue this trend, perhaps introducing NM Card into their higher mid-range devices; while simultaneously cutting prices on NM Cards.

Option B : Skip microSD Card

Switching to NM Card will not work well for their mid-range and entry-level smartphones, because the greatest appeal of microSD cards is their low cost and ubiquity.

If the Trump ban does not get resolved soon, the best option would be to skip the microSD card slot entirely and just increase the internal storage of their mid-range and entry-level smartphones.

We have already seen this trend with some Android smartphones like the OPPO R17 Pro, the Xiaomi Mi A2, and the HONOR 10. Apple iPhones never had the option in the first place, and they are still selling well!

Why Did The SD Association Remove HUAWEI?

[adrotate group=”2″]

The problem isn’t really the SD Association per se. It is the fact that the SD licence is owned and enforced by a US company, SD-3C LLC.

When the Trump Administration added HUAWEI to the Entity List, SD-3C LLC is forced to stop their licensing arrangements with HUAWEI.

Because Micron is a part owner of SD-3C LLC, technology of US origin is also involved – the same issue that forced ARM to sever business ties with HUAWEI.

And HUAWEI Is Back In Again

Almost as quickly and quietly as the SD Association removed HUAWEI as a member, they restored HUAWEI’s membership around 29 May 2019.

There was no official explanation for both removing HUAWEI or restoring them, all in a matter of days.

HUAWEI Legal Motion Too Late, But China Has A Trump Card!

HUAWEI today struck back at the Trump ban, by challenging its constitutionality. Meanwhile, China hints at  a Trump card, pun intended…

We examine why the HUAWEI legal motion is too late to help them, but China’s Trump card may be what they need to break through the Trump ban.

 

HUAWEI Challenges Constitutionality Of The Trump Ban

On 29 May 2019, HUAWEI filed a motion for a summary judgment in its challenge that Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (2019 NDAA) is unconstitutional.

In the complaint, HUAWEI argued that Section 889 of the 2019 NDAA singled out HUAWEI by name, and not only bars U.S. government agencies from buying HUAWEI equipment and services, but also bars them from, contracting with, or awarding grants or loans to third parties who buy HUAWEI equipment or services — even if there is no impact or connection to the U.S. government.

Glen Nager, HUAWEI’s lead counsel for the case, said Section 889 of the 2019 NDAA violates the Bill of Attainder, Due Process, and Vesting Clauses of the United States Constitution. Thus, the case is purely “a matter of law” as there are no facts at issue, thereby justifying the motion for a summary judgement to speed up the process.

In line with a court scheduling order, a hearing on the motion is set for 19 September 2019.

The Trump Ban Will Not Deliver Cybersecurity

HUAWEI also called on the U.S. government to halt its campaign against HUAWEI, because “it will not deliver cybersecurity“.

Banning Huawei using cybersecurity as an excuse “will do nothing to make networks more secure. They provide a false sense of security, and distract attention from the real challenges we face,” said Song Liuping, Huawei’s chief legal officer.

“Politicians in the U.S. are using the strength of an entire nation to come after a private company,” Song noted. “This is not normal. Almost never seen in history.”

“The U.S. government has provided no evidence to show that Huawei is a security threat. There is no gun, no smoke. Only speculation,” Song added.

Song also addressed the addition of Huawei to the “Entity List” by the U.S. Commerce Department two weeks ago. “This sets a dangerous precedent. Today it’s telecoms and Huawei. Tomorrow it could be your industry, your company, your consumers,” he said.

“The judicial system is the last line of defense for justice. Huawei has confidence in the independence and integrity of the U.S. judicial system. We hope that mistakes in the NDAA can be corrected by the court,” Song added.

HUAWEI Legal Motion Too Late To Help

With a hearing set for 3.5 months later, this legal challenge is frankly too late to stop the Trump ban from doing serious damage to HUAWEI.

Depending on who you believe, HUAWEI has enough components stockpiled for 3-12 months. It’s quite possible they will run out of components for at least some of their devices before the hearing even takes place!

In the meantime, the HONOR 20 and HONOR 20 Pro smartphones that just launched are stuck in limbo, because the Trump ban prohibits them from integrating Google Play services and the Play Store.

The same issue will plague all HUAWEI and HONOR devices that were originally scheduled to be launched after 15 May 2019.

Even worse, the temporary partial licence the Trump Administration issued to let HUAWEI and HONOR support their customers runs out by 19 August 2019a full month before the motion is even heard!

Until the Trump ban is lifted or vacated on constitutional grounds, those HUAWEI and HONOR smartphones have no commercial chance outside of China. They will all have to be postponed until this crisis is over…

The Trump Card That Will Save HUAWEI…

What will save HUAWEI is no legal challenge… but a Trump card that the Chinese government has recently hinted at using – rare earths.

Rare earths are CRITICAL to the production of electronics, and that includes everything from smartphones to fighter jets and batteries.

China controls 90% of the world’s rare earth production, and more importantly – 80% of rare earth imports by the US. This is literally the Trump card that could force Trump to back off, and save HUAWEI.

Beijing put Washington on notice about their Trump card when both Chinese President Xi Jinping and his top economic advisor, Vice Premier Liu He, made a well-publicised visit to a rare earth factory in Jiangxi, eastern China.

If that was not obvious enough, the Chinese media (often mouthpieces of the party) made sure everyone knew that rare earths was “an ace in Beijing’s hand“, and “Don’t say you haven’t been warned“.

Even China’s economic planner, the National Development and Reform Commission, said in response to a question “Do you suggest that rare earths will become a part of China’s countermeasures against the US’s unwarranted pressure?” :

What I can tell you is that if someone wants to use our rare earths to manufacture products and use them to curb China’s development, then I’m sure the people of Ganzhou and across China will not be happy with that.”

Of course, Beijing might just be hoping that the threat of using their Trump card will be enough, because this nuclear option has its drawbacks.

Then again, Beijing has never dealt with anyone like Donald Trump… For a special person like that, perhaps a Trump card truly is necessary…

HONOR 20 Pro + HONOR 20 Price, Offers + Specifications!

The HONOR 20 Pro and HONOR 20 smartphones have just been launched, both in London and in Kuala Lumpur!

Let’s take a look at these latest HONOR flagship smartphones with 4 rear cameras – their key features, the official launch presentation, and their prices and offers!

 

What Trump Ban? HONOR 20 Series Launched!

In spite of the ongoing troubles with the Trump Administration, HONOR went ahead and launched their latest HONOR 20 series flagship smartphones!

In their launch presentation, details were short on their response to the Trump ban. They would only say that they are confident of supporting their customers, and that they are here to stay.

Now, the phones on display at the launch had Google Play services and Play Store installed. But as you will see later, they are both not available for sale just yet.

 

HONOR 20 Series Key Features

Both models have the same 6.26-inch LPTS display, and run on the same HUAWEI Kirin 980 mobile SoC.

They too have the same 32 MP front camera, and the same colour options – Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black in Malaysia, with Phantom Black and Phantom Blue available in other countries.

They differ in three main areas, specifically…

Memory + Storage

The HONOR 20 has 6 GB of LPDDR4x memory and 128 GB of internal storage, with while the Pro version comes with 8 GB of LPDDR4x memory and 256 GB of internal storage.

Rear Cameras

Both devices feature a quad camera system at the back. However, there are quite big differences :

  • The HONOR 20 has a 48MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, while Pro version features a wider, brighter f/1.4 aperture and adds OIS capability.
  • The HONOR 20 has a 2MP depth sensor, instead of the Pro version’s 8MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 and OIS.
  • They both have the same 16MP super-wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture.
  • They both have the same 2MP macro camera with f/2.4 aperture.

The 48 MP main camera on both smartphones use the Sony IMX586 image sensor, and defaults to 12 MP because this allows for better image quality, thanks to the larger “combined” pixel size of 1.6 µm.

Battery

The HONOR 20 has a 3,750 mAh battery, while the Pro version has a slightly larger 4,000 mAh battery. They both support 22.5 watt fast charging.

The HONOR View20 Preview : 48 MP + TOF Cameras FTW?

The new HONOR View20 smartphone boasts a 48 MP main camera, paired with a 3D TOF camera. Is the 48 MP camera a game changer? What on earth is a 3D TOF camera?

In our preview, we will take a close look at the HONOR View20, and share with you details on its 48 MP main camera, and the 3D TOF camera!

 

The New HONOR View20 Smartphone

The HONOR View20 is built around the new Hisilicon Kirin 980 mobile SoC, with two variants – 6 GB RAM with 128 GB storage, or 8 GB RAM with 256 GB storage.

The large storage capacity is important, because the View20 lacks a microSD card slot.

The HONOR team extended their experience with advanced nanolithography coating technologies to develop a new V-shaped colour gradient with a gleaming effect for the View20’s back panel.

They also managed to pack a large 4,000 mAh battery into its svelte form factor, with 22.5 watt fast charging capabilities.

 

HONOR View20 Price + Availability

The HONOR View20 will be available in four colour options, three of which are shown in this video :

It will be available in two variants, with the following launch prices :

  • 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage : €569 / £499 / CNY 2,999 / RM 1,999
  • 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage : €649 / £579 / CNY 3,499 / RM 2,499

 

HONOR View20 Key Features

6.4-inch Punch Hole Display

Like the recently-launched HUAWEI nova 4, the HONOR View20 has a 6.4-inch display with a punch hole 25 MP front camera, which allows it deliver a 91.8% screen-to-body ratio.

Flagship Processor + Graphics + AI

The HONOR View20 is powered by the Hisilicon Kirin 980, which is the first 7 nm mobile SoC in the world. It is also the first to come with two NPUs, a Cat.21 modem and support for faster LPDDR4X-2133 memory.

The Kirin 980 also uses a new 2+2+4 cluster architecture, with two ARM Cortex-A76 high-performance cores running at 2.6 GHz, two additional ARM Cortex-A76 cores running at 1.92 GHz and four ARM Cortex-A55 cores running at 1.8 GHz for background or less-intensive workloads.

It also comes with a 24-core ARM Mali-G76 GPU and two NPUs, which should double both its graphics and AI performance.

On top of that, it supports LTE Category 21 download speeds of up to 1.6 Gbps, as well as dual frequency GPS (L5 + L1) for 10X more accurate positioning.

[adrotate group=”1″]

48 MP + 3D TOF Cameras

While the HUAWEI nova 4 opted to go with a triple camera setup, the HONOR team chose a dual camera module for the View20. It pairs a 48 MP main camera with a 3D TOF camera.

The 48 MP main camera has a large ½-inch Sony IMX586 sensor, with 48 million pixels – each 0.8 micron in size. It is paired with a fast, bright f/1.8 lens, which would give it excellent low-light performance.

The second camera is a ToF (Time of Flight) camera, which does not actually take any photos.

Paired with an LED emitter that sends out pulses of invisible near infra-red light, its sensor captures the reflected light to create a 3D map of objects and their distances.

This 3D TOF camera also allows the View20 to more accurately separate the subject of your photograph from the background, for better retouching of the subject and background blurring.

It can also turn the View20 into a motion-controlled gaming console with compatible games.

Why PUBG Mobile Is Best Played On The Honor Play!

PUBG Mobile is the hottest mobile games of 2018, and the Honor Play smartphone is specifically designed to bring out the best in PUBG Mobile. Find out why PUBG Mobile is best played on the Honor Play!

 

Why PUBG Mobile Is Best Played On The Honor Play

Large 6.3-inch FullView Display

The Honor Play (Price Check) smartphone has a large 6.3-inch FullView display with a Full HD+ resolution with an ultra-wide 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It also boasts very thin bezels, with an incredible 89% screen-to-body ratio.

The larger and wider FullView display is designed to give you a more immersive and enjoyable mobile gaming experience. Pity those who still have to struggle with tiny displays!

CRAZY FAST Kirin 970 With AI NPU

The Honor Play is CRAZY FAST. It is powered by the Kirin 970, which is a top-of-the-line processor used in flagship smartphones. It easily handles even the most graphics-intensive games, but that’s not all.

It comes with a dedicated AI Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that further boosts its performance, while conserving power for longer gaming sessions. This is why the Honor Play is perfect for playing PUBG Mobile!

Better Gaming On PUBG Mobile With GPU Turbo

One major reason why the Honor Play is such a great gaming smartphone is GPU Turbo. It is a proprietary hardware and software combination that delivers 60% better GPU performance efficiency, with 30% lower power consumption!

Working together with Tencent Games, Honor made sure that GPU Turbo would work perfectly with PUBG Mobile right out of the box! If you love playing PUBG Mobile, the Honor Play is perfect because it guarantees the ultimate gaming experience with longer play times on PUBG Mobile!

[adrotate group=”1″]

4D AI Gaming Experience

For an even more immersive mobile gaming experience, Honor Play (Price Check) delivers a 4D AI Gaming Experience with Smart Shock and Histen 3D Gaming Audio

Smart Shock is an exclusive Honor Play feature. The Kirin 970‘s AI Neural Processing Unit (NPU) automatically recognises images and sounds of your game in real-time, and vibrates the Honor Play to give you directional cues and a more realistic gaming experience.

It is so advanced, it recognises 30 different scenarios, and 10 different weapons. Now, you get to feel the kickback of your gun, and get alerted to gunfire and approaching enemies. Boost your situational awareness with Smart Shock!

Histen 3D Gaming Audio, on the other hand, envelopes you in an ultra-wide 3D sound space, with three modes – near, front and wide. – to deliver a more cinematic and immersive gaming experience.

Supporting both wired and wireless earphones, Histen 3D Gaming Audio also helps you accurately determine the azimuth of everything you hear – footsteps, shots, explosions. Now you will have an edge over your PUBG Mobile opponents on less capable smartphones!

#PlayMorePayLess

PUBG Mobile will run on every flagship smartphone without a sweat. But why pay more, when you can play more and pay less?

Despite packing flagship-level performance and advanced gaming features, the Honor Play (Price Check) only costs ⅓ as much as any flagship smartphone! Can you beat such incredible value?

Be smart – #PlayMorePayLess with Honor Play!

The Top 5 Reasons Why The Honor 10 Is Awesome!

The Honor 10 smartphone is one of the best smartphones Honor ever made. Here are the top 5 reasons why the Honor 10 is amazing!

 

Reason #1 : Exquisite Aurora Glass

The first thing that strikes you when you pick up the Honor 10 (US Price Check) for the first time is the spectacular Aurora Glass design. Inspired by aerial net sculptures and first introduced in the Honor 8, the Aurora Glass is painstakingly crafted using 15 layers of membrane and glass in a Class 100 dust-free workshop.

Creating the Aurora Glass is a laborious affair that takes twice as long to fabricate, with a high failure rate. But all that hard work and sacrifice is rewarded with the exquisite Aurora Glass design that is literally out-of-this-world.

 

Reason #2 : Large True Colour Display

You will be amazed by the Honor 10’s large 5.84″ display, with an incredible 86% screen-to-body ratio. Thanks to its bezel-less design, the Honor 10 (US Price Check) is only about the size of a traditional 5.2″ smartphone. You will love how it fits in your hand and pocket. Now you can have your cake and eat it too – a large display in a small package!

You will also be amazed by the display’s true colour capability. The Honor 10 (US Price Check) has an improved FullView 2.0 display with a wide 96% NTSC colour gamut. Once you see your photos and videos appearing exactly as they would in real life, you can never go back!

 

Reason #3 : AI Camera

The Honor 10 (US Price Check) has an amazing dual-lens AI camera that combines a 16 MP RGB camera with a 24 MP monochrome camera to capture photos with less noise and greater detail.

The RGB sensor captures the colour data; while the monochrome sensor captures the details, with less noise and greater sharpness. Both cameras then combine their sensor data to create a final image that is sharper and with greater detail than would be possible with a single RGB camera

But its photographic capabilities go beyond its dual-lens setup.

The Honor 10 AI Camera can recognise more than 500 photographic scenarios in real-time, identifying the outlines of objects and separating them from the background using the world’s first Semantic Image Segmentation technology.

Semantic Image Segmentation is game-changing because it allows the Honor 10 to literally take apart the picture, and dynamically enhance each element separately for the best results possible. You can take great photos, but the Honor 10 will make them amazing!

 

Reason #4 : Flagship CPU With AI Capabilities

The Honor 10 (US Price Check) runs on the most powerful platform from HiSilicon – the Kirin 970. This is a flagship-class platform that is fabricated on the latest and most power-efficient 10 nm process.

The Kirin 970 does not only boast a fast octa-core CPU and a 12-core GPU, it supports the latest LPDDR4X memory, and comes with the best-in-class network capabilities – LTE Cat18 for download speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps, with 4×4 MIMO, 5CC carrier aggregation and 256-QAM.

The HiSilicon Kirin 970 also boasts a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit) that delivers 25X the AI processing performance, at half the size! The Kirin 970 NPU is more than twice as fast as the Apple iPhone 8 Plus, and 21X faster than the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The AI processing capability of the Kirin 970 NPU is important because it allows the Honor 10 AI Camera to quickly identify the scene and apply the appropriate settings for the best picture possible. Take this motion capture demo, for example.

The Kirin 970’s ability to identify and predict the motion in the scene allows it to better capture a sharper image. Without the AI predictive capability, it will be virtually impossible to capture a clear image of an object in motion.

 

Reason #5 : Unbelievable Price!

Flagship smartphones always feature the best technologies possible. However, they are often priced in the stratosphere for the same reason. The Honor 10 (US Price Check) is one of the few exceptions.

Price at only RM 1,599 / ~US$ 399, the Honor 10 (US Price Check) offers flagship capabilities at a fraction of the cost. Can you find another flagship smartphone with the same features at this price point? No, you cannot!

 

Honor 10 Price & Availability

[adrotate group=”2″]

The Honor 10 is available in three colour options – Phantom Blue, Glacier Grey and Midnight Black – at a low, low price of RM 1,599 / £299 / US$ 403! You can get them from :

The honor 9 Lite Launched At Just RM 749 / US$ 189!

honor Malaysia just launched the honor 9 Lite smartphone that features four cameras! Best of all, they’re pricing it at just RM 749 / US$ 189, with a special launch price of RM 699 / US$ 176!

 

The honor 9 Lite Quad-Camera Smartphone

The honor 9 Lite features a dual-lens 13 MP + 2 MP camera on both the front and rear, allowing users to capture crystal clear and stunning images anytime, anywhere and anyway. It boasts upgraded and customisable beautification features, and hardware-level bokeh effects, which should appeal to for selfie enthusiasts.

Although honor calls it a quad-camera system, it’s really a dual-lens camera on both sides. Each dual-lens camera has a single 13 MP sensor that takes the actual photos, with a secondary 2 MP sensor that serves as a depth sensor.

This combination allows for bokeh effects to be more accurately applied, as well as post-capture focus selection.

Design & Display

[adrotate group=”2″]

The honor 9 Lite comes with a reflective glass back in the Sapphire Blue and Glacier Grey options, which gives it a premium look and feel.

It also boasts a bezel-less 5.65-inch FullView HD Display screen and mirror-like glass finish with a high screen-to-body ratio, promising to give users a device with a luxe design.

The honor View10 Preview, Price & Specifications Revealed!

Right after honor launched the honor 7X FullView Display smartphone, they gave us an in-depth preview of their first AI smartphone – the honor View10 (also known as the honor V10). Check out their 26-minute long presentation, and see for yourself what you can expect from the honor View10 AI smartphone!

Originally posted @ 2017-12-19


 

The honor View10 AI Smartphone

As honor’s first AI smartphone, the honor View10 boasts a plethora of AI functionality, or so the marketing pitch goes. First and foremost, it is powered by the Kirin 970 SoC  – the first to have a dedicated NPU (find out how fast it is!).

The Kirin 970 with its dedicated NPU is what enables its AI functionality, delivering 25X better neural processing performance at 1/50th the power consumption of a traditional CPU. Let’s take a look at its key features.

AI Camera

Photos taken with the honor View10 will be adjusted automatically to create a final output that looks like they were taken professionally. In addition to recognising the subject in focus, it has the ability to intelligently recognise up to 13 different scenes.

AI Motion Detection

The main camera also has the capability to predict motion in order to improve the focusing response. This allows it to better capture moving subjects with less motion blur.

AI Front Camera

The front camera uses the machine learning results from millions of portraits to improve the look of the portraits you take. It also attempts to intelligently adjust the brightness of the front flash to better capture your selfie without overblowing the highlights.

NPU Driven Translation

[adrotate group=”2″]

The honor View10 comes with NPU driven translation, running on Microsoft Translator, and powered by the Kirin 970 NPU. It allows you to take a picture of foreign words and have it translated into your language of choice.

AI Gaming

The honor View10 will intelligently adjust graphics settings and system resources for better gaming performance.

Sync Play

Using NFC Connect, multiple devices can be linked as mobile speakers, delivering synchronised surround music. Note that these devices must support honor Sync Play.

The honor Point Cloud Depth Camera Sneak Peek

At the launch of the honor 7X FullView Display smartphone, honor showed off the upcoming honor View10 AI smartphone, as well as point cloud depth camera technology they’re developing.

 

What Is A Point Cloud Depth Camera?

A point cloud depth camera is a combination of a VCSEL laser projector and two stereoscopic RGB LED sensors. The laser projector creates a “cloud” of dots or points, which is picked up by the two sensors. A 3D image is then created from the two separate images.

Backing up the point cloud depth camera is an IR camera that captures the infrared image of your face. This helps the point cloud depth camera avoid being fooled by a fake mask.

 

The honor Point Cloud Depth Camera Sneak Peek

While revealing details of the upcoming honor View10 AI smartphone, Huawei Malaysia Business Director Zhiwei Zhao gave us a sneak peek of the honor point cloud depth camera that they’re planning to bring to market soon.

3D Face Recognition & Reconstruction

This is nothing new, of course, being a riff on the Apple iPhone X 3D facial recognition technology. But honor promises that their 3D face recognition technology will be more accurate and more secure.

It will be capable of deliverying up to a 300,000 point cloud – 10X more than the iPhone X – albeit taking 10 seconds to do it. For quick identification, it will be able to identify your face and unlock the smartphone in 400 ms. Presumably, that will use far fewer dots – probably 120,000 of them.

The high number of dots allow more than just 3D facial recognition. It will also allow you to reconstruct your face in 3D with sub-millimeter accuracy. Whether this is used to create facially-similar avatars in games, or facial masks like in Mission Impossible, remains to be seen.

[adrotate group=”2″]

3D Facial Animation

honor proposes that the 3D face map will allow for more realistic 3D facial animation for use in animated emojis. We can also see it being used to create more realistic videos using 3D or cartoon avatars.

3D Small Object Reconstruction

The high point cloud capability will also allow small objects to be measured and reconstructed in 3D. honor claims that the high dot density is sufficient to pick up even the texture of the object.

They also say that they have the ability to remove the background, and the palm (or table) on which the object rests.

The honor 8 Pro Smartphone Debuts @ Just RM 1999!

honor Malaysia today introduced the honor 8 Pro premium smartphone. It features a top-of-the-line processor, a long battery life, a 5.7″ Quad HD display and a dual-lens camera – all packed into a chassis that is just under 7 mm thick!

 

The honor 8 Pro is Geared for Speed

The honor 8 Pro is powered by the Kirin 960 SoC, that promises significantly better performance than its predecessor, the Kirin 950.

  • The Kirin 960 has 8 processor cores – 4 x high-performance ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.4 GHz and 4 x low-power Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz – that improve single-core and multi-core performance by 10% and 18% respectively.
  • The ARM Mali-G71 GPU includes support for the cutting-edge Vulkan API, boosting graphics performance by up to 400%.
  • The new EMUI 5.1 system leverages machine learning to learn from your behavior and habits to minimise lag and ensure applications and files load smoothly. For example, if you tend to open an application at a certain time of the day, the honor 8 Pro will be able to anticipate your needs and pre-load the application.

Longer Battery Life

Coupled with advanced power-saving features, the honor 8 Pro’s 4,000 mAh battery provides up to 2 days of regular use, and almost 1.44 days of heavy use. The Smart Power 5.0 technology helps to maximise battery life by automatically identifying and terminating processes with exceptionally high power consumption, as well as minimising power consumed by background applications.

 

Minimalist Sophistication

The honor 8 Pro boasts an ultra-thin 6.97 mm metal body that is available in navy blue or midnight black colours. Its Quad HD display features a high pixel density of 515 ppi, 16.7 million colours and a 94.5% NTSC color gamut.

The honor 8 Pro also comes VR-ready, with a bundled cardboard viewer and pre-installed Jaunt VR app containing a wealth of video content. Users will also be able to dive into the exhilarating world of Galaxy on Fire 3, the first 3D game to run on the Vulkan interface.

Dual 12 MP Cameras 

The honor 8 Pro features a 12 MP dual-lens camera. The two lenses work in tandem to always deliver the perfect shot:

[adrotate group=”2″]

  • the monochrome lens captures a black-and-white image with incredible depth of detail while the RGB lens ensure faithful and vivid color reproduction
  • the camera software then combines the two images together.

The camera supports a wide software aperture range (f/0.95–f/16) to delivers DSLR-like depth of field “bokeh” effects for both photo and video shooting. The cameras also support 4K video recording, which are encoded in the efficient H.265 codec, producing files twice as small as its predecessor.

EMUI 5.1 also introduces Highlights, a new feature co-developed with Go Pro that intelligently organises photos by category and automatically generates video stories that are easily customisable – making sharing memories a breeze.

 

The 2017 Mobile Legends South East Asia Cup

Marking honor 8 Pro’s exclusive partnership for the 2017 Mobile Legends South East Asia Cup in Malaysia, Mandy Dai, Senior Marketing Director from Moonton said, “I am honoured to announce this exclusive partnership with honor Malaysia and have the honor 8 Pro as the official gaming phone for the tournament which will be used by professional e-sport gamers. The honor 8 Pro is a device that offers exceptional speed, graphic and detail, and we believe that gamers will take pleasure through its superior user experience.”

 

The honor 8 Pro Price & Availability

The honor 8 Pro will be made available in the Malaysia market beginning 11 July at a retail price of RM1,999 / ~US$ 475. vMall, the official licensed e-store for honor and HUAWEI will be the first online platform to offer the honor 8 Pro followed by honor experience stores and display zones beginning 12 July 2017.
