Huawei launches third party store to sell smartphone with its design
Today, Huawei has launched a third-party smartphone store on its E-commerce website, opening the area for companies that are using Huawei’s smartphone design.
According to the information, the Huawei Vmall store will now offer third-party smartphones under the “Smartphone” section of the website. Currently the website listed smartphones from WIKO and Hi Nova series. However, more of these could be listed later on.
The website will allow users to pre-order and buy these smartphones directly from a website similar to the Huawei devices. Also, these phones come with a warranty and after-sale services.
Looking into the details, WIKO 5G HarmonyOS phone has an 8GB+128GB version priced at 1999 yuan. The Hi Nova 10 5G smartphone with 8GB+128GB is priced at 2899 yuan. The Hi nova 10 Pro 5G with 8GB+128GB memory is priced at 3699 yuan.
WIKO 5G, Hi nova 10 5G, and Hi nova 10 Pro 5G are available for pre-order at 429, 504, and 384 yuan, respectively.
Looking at the chipset, the WIKO 5G is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G SoC. On the other hand, the Hi nova 10 series equips Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G processor.
These phones uses Huawei smartphone design and look identical to what Huawei has already published in the Huawei nova series. However, there are more devices that use flagship designs.
Huawei P60 goes on Geekbench with Android 13 and Snapdragon 778
The Huawei P60 series has now appeared on Geekbench, which shows Huawei is conducting pre-launch tests and preparations. A model from this lineup features Android 13 and Snapdragon 778 chipset.
According to the Geekbench listing, the Huawei smartphone model MNA-AL00 on Geekbench achieved 551 single-core scores and 2312 multi-core scores. The phone has an octa-core processor with 4 cores running 1.8GHz and the other four at 2.40GHz.
Furthermore, the listing says that the MNA-AL00 has Adreno 642L GPU, which is used in Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset.
The Huawei phone is tested with 8GB of RAM and interestingly, it is coupled with Android 13, which is a rare use of the software. Because Huawei is likely to use HarmonyOS 3.1 in the Huawei P60 lineup and it’s possible that the latest open-source library in the software has been updated, while HarmonyOS 3.0 had Android 12.
Earlier last month, the Huawei P60 series visited China’s Telecommunication Equipment’s Network Access Management (TENAA) with models MNA-AL00 and LNA-AL00. It was predicted that these two could be the standard P60 and the Pro version respectively.
So, is the above-mentioned Geekbench model is standard Huawei P60? Probably. Why? because last year, Huawei launched a new P50 series model – P50E and it featured Snapdragon 778.
Moreover, the Huawei P60 series is also reported to come with a P60E model, given the fact that MNA-AL00 also uses the same processor, it is possible to come as Huawei P60E and not the standard version. However, we don’t have any confirmation on this matter.
Huawei P60 series:
Past information reveals that the Huawei P60 series will come with a brand-new imaging system, XMAGE. Other than that, the camera will bring a new design. Aside from these, Huawei could use the latest hardware and software features.
The report suggests that the Huawei P60 series will launch in March but we are waiting for an official confirmation.
Huawei Mate X3 to price below $1500
According to the input coming from Weibo, a well-known tipster has been asked by a follower, whether Huawei Mate X3 will be priced at 10000 yuan (around $1500). The tipster replied Yes.
Although, we don’t have confirmation on this matter but we are able to tell you about the price of the Huawei Mate X2. The Mate X2 has an 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM version priced at 17999 ($2782) and an 8GB+512GB version at 18999 ($2938).
Other than that, Huawei’s latest foldable device – Huawei Mate Xs 2 comes in three models 8GB+256GB/512GB and 12GB+512GB version. This model starts at 9999, 11499, and 12999 yuan respectively.
Yes, the new pricing is possible, because Huawei has improved its supply chain and the technology has reduced pricing as compared to the predecessor. This could help the Chinese tech maker to bring Mate X3 under 10000 yuan.
Huawei Mate X3:
It’s expected that Huawei Mate X3 will bring better camera imaging thanks to the XMAGE imaging system. On the other hand, it will have increased battery capacity, as well as a light design that will provide comfort grip on your hand.
Huawei is yet to announce a launch date but the past report suggests that it could unveil alongside the P60 series in March.
