Make way for the best outdoor activity buddy, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Hand in hand with an increased nutrition awareness, the world is witnessing a rise of fitness culture. Fitness influencers are being followed by millions on Social Media, workout applications are increasingly popular and gyms have never been busier. Outdoor workouts are getting increasingly popular too, especially in good weather. Whether on the beach, in the mountains or at parks, people are gett...[Read More]

The Honor View 20 features a 48MP camera and a cut-out front-camera

This week Huawei subsidiary Honor announced the Honor View 20, the successor to last year’s View 10 (which we didn’t get here), and it looks even better. One might even say, “infinitely better”. The View 20 will feature a full-display ‘infinity design’ with a cut-out or ‘punch-hole’ front-facing camera in the display. Around the back, it has a new Sony 48M...[Read More]

When to expect the first 5G-enabled devices in South Africa

Before you get too excited, it’s safe to say that 5G is still quite a way off for South Africa. The problem is two fold. First, in order to roll out commercial 5G services mobile network operators need access to the radio frequency spectrum 5G requires. The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) is responsible for making that happen, but is bogged down in arguments about how ...[Read More]

A roundup of Huawei’s 2018 Black Friday deals

Although slightly late (MTN, iStore, PlayStation and Xbox have all already come to the party), Huawei has decided to join in the fun and announced the its specials for this Black Friday. We’re quite sure you’ve already got your credit card handy (as you’ve likely been making online purchases since a hair past midnight).

The Honor 8X is coming to South Africa and will cost R5,500

Huawei’s more budget-friendly sub-brand, Honor, launched in South Africa earlier this year with two devices, the Honor 9 Lite and 7X.

Huawei is looking to launch augmented reality glasses in the next couple of years

Huawei has done something that Stuff wasn’t expecting to happen in 2018 — they’ve made perhaps the best phone of the year but that’s apparently not good enough for the Chinese company. After storming the lines manned by Samsung and Apple, Huawei has set its sights a little further afield. What would you say to augmented reality glasses made by Huawei? Hopefully you’re...[Read More]

The debate about whether an algorithm will replace your job is becoming more pertinent

Most of the conversations about artificial intelligence (AI) seem to be focussed on the potential job losses this new form of automation will result in. Some 800-million people could lose their jobs by 2030 according to the figures from a study by the McKinsey Global Institute last December, which also predicted AI will affect 800 various job types and occupations in 46 countries. That’s 20%...[Read More]

Apple better worry – Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro costs R19,000, pre-orders open tomorrow

Apple unveiled more smartphones than usual for 2018 but the price… oh, the price is the thing. And they might be in trouble, as Huawei unveiled their camera-rrific Mate 20 Pro at an event in Johannesburg this evening and the Chinese company’s new flagship comes in at just R19,000 if you’re grabbing it pre-paid. The XS, if you remember, starts at R22,000. And Huawei have decided t...[Read More]

Test shots with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s snappers show it’s the yogi of smartphone cameras

It’s been a week since Huawei launched its Mate 20 Pro smartphone in London, and early indications are its triple rear camera setup might make it this year’s phone camera to beat. We’ve been snapping all sorts of test shots to see whether the results live up to Huawei’s marketing hype, and off the bat we can tell you this: with its ultra-wide, wide, zoom and macro chops, it...[Read More]

Huawei Mate 20 Pro vs Huawei P20 Pro: The weigh-in

How can Huawei top the brilliant P20 Pro? By bringing in a new Mate, it seems. It’s too early to know for sure, but the freshly revealed Huawei Mate 20 Pro looks to be leaps and bounds better than last year’s great — but now somewhat dated-looking — Mate 10 Pro. It’s also packing a dazzling new design along with loads of top-end tech and unique features. Of course, the P20 ...[Read More]

Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the most exciting smartphone of 2018

Huawei unveiled three new handsets and a watch at its global launch event in London today. The star of the show is the Mate 20 Pro. It’s flanked by the regular Mate 20 and the gaming-focused Mate 20X. Finally, there’s the new Huawei Watch GT, the details of which leaked a few days ago. Out of the handsets, we’re only getting the Mate 20 Pro in South Africa, so that’s what we’re going to focus on… ...[Read More]

Here’s what we know about the Huawei Watch GT – thanks to Huawei’s own website

It’s hard keeping secrets in an age where everyone has a video camera and a microphone in their front pocket, and when all the information you could ever need (and a whole lot more that you never will) lives inside that same device. Huawei learned that the hard way this weekend when the company prematurely published info concerning their upcoming smartwatch, the Watch GT. All of the specific...[Read More]
