Is there anything major about the Huawei P20 series that we still don’t know about? We already know they’ll have a notch, how much they would cost, and what specifications they might have. It seemed like pretty much every detail has leaked about the upcoming phones of Huawei.

This time around, let’s talk about colors. If you’re going to ask us, the color options of a smartphone (especially flagship devices) matter as much as its features. If you’re the type of person who dislikes to put on a case and showcase the naked beauty of your phone, you should check out the color variants of the P20 series.

Let’s start with the Huawei P20 Lite which is the cheapest among the bunch. It may be the most affordable in the series, but will not skimp on external beauty. The P20 Lite is made up of Huawei’s super-reflective glass that looks pretty when you shine it up against the light much like with the Honor 9. No final words on how many colors it’ll have but black, blue (which is the prettiest), and pink are definitely on the list.

The Huawei P20 will have the same colors as the P20 Lite but with a more special pink-gold variant. Also, the back of the P20 looks like it’s made of glass which kinda shows off a gradient depending on the lighting condition.

The star of the series, the Huawei P20 Pro, will not only have a special third camera sensor on its back; it’ll also be available in a distinct color variant rumored to be called Twilight. This one is some kind of a mishmash of violet, green, and blue hues. If Huawei is still in close ties with Pantone like last year, this is definitely their grand offering which features the color of the year.

The Huawei P20 series is expected to be unveiled on March 27 in Paris, France. To see more of the leaked color options of the P20 series, head to the source link below.

It’s finally here! The much anticipated Black Shark 2 and Black Shark 2 Pro are finally in the Philippines.

First announced back in July, the Black Shark 2 is a much anticipated gaming smartphone. Powering the phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus.

However, is that the display still retains a 60Hz refresh rate that lags behind its major competitor — the ASUS ROG Phone 2 — which has a display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

Remade into horror and glory

Published

PlayStation saved the best announcement as its second to the last for its final State of Play. One of the most popular survival horror franchises gets another remake since its release 20 years ago. Capcom wants to take everyone back to Raccoon City in its full, high definition glory in Resident Evil 3.

Revisit the story of Jill Valentine as you venture through the virus-infected city in this modern remake. Avid followers of the multitude of Resident Evil games will enjoy the improved visuals while enjoying the same style of shoulder-perspective gameplay. Capcom programmed the entire remake on their own RE Engine, the engine responsible for Devil May Cry 5.

Apart from that, Capcom also announced Resident Evil: Project Resistance – a 4v1 multiplayer mode within Resident Evil 3. It features similar gameplay to that of Resident Evil 2, as players turn into survivors at the mercy of a Mastermind. Early talks suggested that it would be a separate title, but will now be part of the Resident Evil 3 remake.

The game will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the PC on April 3, 2020. PlayStation is already taking in pre-orders for the game as early as now.

China is banning all American technology

Over 30 million devices to be replaced

Published

on

For most of the year, we’ve heard of the American government banning Chinese products on their soil. It has always been the US making its moves against China. For its part, China has found itself on the defensive for most of the time. However, the tides are finally turning.

According to a new report, China is planning to ban all American technology from its government offices. The new ban mirrors the US government’s ban on Chinese technology. The Chinese government has issued a three-year deadline for offices to comply.

Based on estimates, Chinese government offices must replace up to 30 million items in three years. Even if it is an estimate, the figure is no joke, especially with the tense relationship between two of the world’s biggest technology manufacturers. China depends on American technology, as much as American depends on China.

Given both sides’ bans on the other, China must find a way to rely on its own technology or on other sponsors. If anything, China’s increased reliance on its own products will intensify its local companies, especially Huawei.

Besides finding better alternatives to its products, the government’s loss is a company’s gain. Chinese companies — like Huawei, Lenovo, and OPPO — can fill in the void for the government.

What does this mean for the world? Similar to the government’s predicament now, Huawei is trying to find permanent alternatives to its American components. If successful, Chinese products will be entirely made in China, rather than being a balanced blend of differently sourced components.
