Huawei have made a pretty big splash in Australia, delivering a line of smartphones that deliver on impressive internal specs and remarkably well-designed cameras. Those that got their hands on their previous high-end offerings - the Mate 10, for example - were not disappointed. Now, the P20 Pro, unveiled in March this year, is coming to Australia to shake things up even more. Here's how much the P20 Pro will cost in Australia and when you can get it.
By all accounts, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Apple iPhone X are dann good smartphones. Both come packed with the latest and greatest tech, especially in regards to the camera...which means it doesn't come cheap.
If you're looking at upgrading your phone this year but the S9 and iPhone X seem a little out of reach, then here are some alternatives that you should consider.
Mobile World Congress is the big show when it comes to all things mobile. Whether that's laptops, smartphones, tablets or retro gadgets, this is where everyone that isn't Apple unveils their latest and greatest products. This year has been no exception, with Nokia, Huawei, and others all showing off the mobile hardware we'll be coveting for the next year.
Here are the five new products that have us intrigued and grabbed our attention.
Last weekend Kotaku went around Supanova Brisbane with a Huawei Mate 10, which one reader won! This weekend, they're doing Supanova Adelaide and have another phone to give away - and you don't have to be at Supanova Adelaide to win.
The headphone jack is an endangered species. Apple got rid of it when they released the iPhone 7, Google laughed at them, and then Google went and got rid of it with their second generation Pixel phones, the Pixel 2.
I’m certainly not laughing, as the headphone jack prepares for extinction. If you just want a great phone with a headphone jack, here’s what to look at.
If someone showed you a group photo containing your boyfriend or girlfriend, you could probably spot them without much trouble. But what if the photo was from ten years ago? Or what if their face was partially obscured? What if it contained thousands of people? That's when you might need artificial intelligence to help you out.
Chinese tech firm Yitu has perfected its facial recognition AI to such a degree that it can now identify faces faster than humans - even when they are intimately familiar with the face in question. Welcome to the next creepy stage of video surveillance.
Chinese multinational Huawei has announced grand plans for its cloud computing arm. In short, it wants to form a global "cloud alliance" with telco partners around the world. This will allow for greater collaboration on the delivery of cloud solutions for international enterprises, similar to how airline alliances operate today.
If there's one thing smartphone cameras have going for them, it's that they're not cameras -- and that means they're not big, obtrusive, uncomfortable objects thrust into the face of unwilling subjects. Huawei's 100 Portraits project brought together some of the region's most talented photographers, including New Zealand's Stu Robertson, to capture compelling stories in portrait form with the Huawei P10's dual-lens cameras.
As one of the big challenger brands in smartphones, as well as boasting an impressive marketshare in network equipment, Chinese powerhouse Huawei has plans for further expansion. At an event in Berlin - an interesting choice with HP unveiling new notebooks in Cannes and the Computex geek fest just a week away - the company unveiled their new MateBook. And it's a device I'm hoping to look at in my quest for the perfect traveling tablet.

The theme of Huawei's Connect 2016 conference in Shanghai, China, is 'Shape the cloud'. Certainly Huawei, an IT and communications technology provider, is becoming a serious player in the cloud space. But despite having the capabilities to launch its own public cloud service, it has chosen to stay behind the scenes, providing technology to power other people's clouds instead. Huawei explains why it's not interested in becoming the next Amazon Web Service (AWS).
