Huawei tease a stylus phone for MWC 2016


Xiaomi isn’t the only Chinese phone maker gearing up for MWC 2016. There are going to be a tonne other phone launches from a tonne other companies that are expected to keep tech enthusiasts busy.

Huawei is a company that has a lot on its plate currently. While rumours of the P9 keep coming thick and fast, there’s another device that the company just teased — one with a stylus. Yes, you read it right!

The teaser comes from Huawei CEO’s Weibo, with a line “A new style of business”. The teaser also mentions that the product would be launched on 21st February at MWC.

While a stylus-supported variant of the Mate 8 can’t be ruled out, it is also possible that this teaser is for the long-rumoured Huawei MateBook.

Styli were brought back into fashion after the success of Samsung’s Galaxy Note series. Speaking of, Samsung too have a couple of big launches scheduled for MWC, in the Galaxy S7 and its edge sibling.

What excites you more? We at GizChina would love to see a laptop from Huawei!

    Huawei is one of the most exciting brands to watch, especially now that they are taking the Western markets seriously, and getting praise from Western journalists (Honor 5x).

            lol no … just being realistic. thats how much a gaming machine should cost. as is the case here , u need to shell out around 45-55 k PKR for a mid-high settings gaming desktop with most parts being refurb and only the GPU , PSU being new along with an additional RAM and stuff.

      When there is no real competition it can`t be done, Intel are making billions of AMD’s misery and Nvidia is no better.
      X86 is a dying market unless someone can step up with a really good product and challenge INTEL also on a marketing level.

        but but … I LOVE AMD !
        x86 as in 32 bit architecture ?

          x64 is an instruction set of the X86. All PC processors that are sold by Intel and AMD are based on the X86 architecture that started with the Intel 8086 CPU in the late 70`s, but really kicked off with the original Pentium processor in the early 90`s.

            so … basically x64 is drived from x86.

            u said x86 is dying , why is that ?!

              Yes, true on both accounts.
              It is dying because Intel have made that it remaigns a one-horse race, therefore there hasn’t been any real improvements/innovations for 10 years now and the market is stuck.
              RISC CPU’s like ARM’s on the other hand is developing much faster than x86 ever was, it is also a one-horse race(basically just ARM), but the demand for faster/better/smaller product is insanely high.
              Both have some things in common, but are a very different view on how to solve prolems(what CPU’s do, math that is, not world hunger problems)
              Think of it as having two roads to reach one place, but both take you through an entirely different area, but in the end you always get to the same place.

              so basically desktops and Laptops will be extinct , mostly because CISC CPUs are a one horse race and no one can compete with em ?!

              what will happen to AAA games being made for the big stage and big screens ?!

              this cant be right , oh my …

              Well, you saw that Candy Crush Saga was bought for 5 Bln USD, the Star Wars franchise was worth 4 bln the year before.
              Kim Kardashian’s new game made 100 Mln in 2 weeks on mobiles, that game was made by 3 people for 50, 000 USD.
              AAA game development costs 50+ Mnl Dollars and marketing is very costly as well.
              Bethesda made more money from Fallout Shelter(the mobile game) than they did with their actual Fallout 4 game so far(game has a budget of maybe more than 100 Mln USD, Fallout Shelter – 100,000 USD)
              You do the math where the focus is going to be within the next few years.

              this is bad …. so what you’re saying is that , soon PC MASTER RACE will cease to exist AND soon , even the Consoles will go extinct !

              and to think i have been waiting an eternity to build a gaming PC :'(

              guess i’ll never get to enjoy games after all … this is bad … if AAA games go extinct , i dunno what i’ll do :/ i love gaming and have been doing it since Age 4 !
              guess this is real life for u n me
