Huawei Said to Be in Talks to Sell P and Mate Smartphone Sub-Brands


China’s Huawei Technologies is in early-stage talks to sell its premium smartphone brands P and Mate, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said, a move that could see the company eventually exit from the high-end smartphone-making business.

The talks between the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker and a consortium led by Shanghai government-backed investment firms have been going on for months, the people said, declining to be identified as the discussions were confidential.

Huawei started to internally explore the possibility of selling the brands as early as last September, according to one of the sources. The two sources were not privy to the valuation placed on the brands by Huawei.

Shipments of Mate and P Series phones were worth $39.7 billion (roughly Rs. 2,89,460 crores) between Q3 2019 and Q3 2020, according to consultancy IDC.

However, Huawei has yet to make a final decision on the sale and the talks might not conclude successfully, according to the two sources, as the company is still trying to manufacture at home its in-house designed high-end Kirin chips which power its smartphones.

“Huawei has learned there are unsubstantiated rumours circulating regarding the possible sale of our flagship smartphone brands,” a Huawei spokesman said. “There is no merit to these rumours whatsoever. Huawei has no such plan.”

The Shanghai government said it was not aware of the situation and declined to comment further.

The potential sale of Huawei’s premium smartphone lines suggests the company has little hope that the new Biden administration will have a change of heart towards the supply chain restrictions placed on Huawei since May 2019, the two people said.

The Shanghai government-backed investment firms may form a consortium with Huawei’s dealers to take over the P and Mate brands, according to the second person, a similar model to the Honor deal. Huawei is also likely to keep its existing P& Mate management team for the new entity, if the deal goes through, the two people said.

Overcoming US curbs

Huawei, the world’s biggest telecoms equipment vendor and No.2 smartphone maker, last November announced the sale of its budget phone brand Honor to a consortium of 30 dealers led by a company backed by the Shenzhen government.

The second source said the all-cash sale fetched more than CNY 100 billion (roughly Rs. 1,12,560 crores). Honor declined to comment.

The Honor sale was aimed at keeping the budget brand alive, as sanctions slapped on Huawei by the United States had hampered the unit’s supply chain and cut off the company’s access to key hardware like chips and software such as Alphabet’s Google Mobile Services.

Huawei may have a similar objective in pursuing the sale of the mobile brands. The two sources said that Huawei’s latest plans for the two high-end brands were motivated by insufficient chip supplies.

Washington says that Huawei is a national security threat, which Huawei has repeatedly denied.

On Friday, Honor indicated that the goal of the spin-off had been reached by announcing it had formed partnerships with chip makers such as Intel and Qualcomm and launched a new phone.

Last year, the company’s Consumer Business Group Chief Executive Richard Yu said US restrictions meant Huawei would soon stop making Kirin chips. Analysts expect its stockpile of the chips to run out this year.

Huawei’s HiSilicon division relies on software from US companies such as Cadence Design Systems or Synopsys to design its chips and it outsources the production to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC), which uses equipment from US companies.

The P and Mate phone series are among the top players in the higher-end smartphone market in China and compete with Apple’s iPhone, Xiaomi’s Mi and Mix series and OPPO’s Find series.

The two brands contributed nearly 40 percent to Huawei’s total sales over the third quarter of 2020, according to market research firm Counterpoint.

Analysts have already noted recent insufficient supplies of the flagship P40 and Mate40 series due to a severe components shortage.

“We expect a continuous decline in sales of P and Mate series smartphones through Q1 2021,” said Flora Tang, an analyst at Counterpoint.

MIUI 12 Remove Ads: How to Get Rid of Ads From Your Xiaomi Smartphone


Xiaomi is one of the largest smartphone brands in India and is known for its budget smartphones. While its own custom skin based on Android 11, the MIUI 12, comes with some notable features, it also contains ads that are sprinkled all throughout. During the launch of MIUI 12, Xiaomi did mention the presence of a one-tap option to disable system-wide ads, but that feature was missing in the global build. If you are a MIUI 12 user and want to give your smartphone a deep cleanse, here’s how you can do it.

Before you start following the steps in this guide, we recommend you to double-check the version of MIUI on your smartphone. If you’re still running previous versions of MIUI, we have already made guides for them. Here’s the step-by-step process for MIUI 11, MIUI 10 and MIUI 9. Another thing to note here is that we used a Redmi 9 Power for this tutorial, so your mileage may vary.

Disabling the MSA process

To begin our process of disabling ads, we will have to cut off a few things at source. One of these is MSA or MIUI System Ads, which is one of the biggest reasons for seeing ads in stock apps. To disable it:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Navigate to Passwords & security > Authorisation & revocation.
  3. Here you’ll have to disable msa.
  4. After this, scroll down a bit and disable GetApps as well.
  5. You’ll get a 10-second warning message, asking you if you’re sure you want to do it.
  6. After the countdown, press Revoke. In case it doesn’t let you toggle it off in the first go, (which shouldn’t be the case), try it again till it’s off.
  7. Even if you reboot your phone, MSA should still be disabled.

MSA or MIUI System Ads is one of the biggest reasons for seeing ads in stock apps

 

More changes to stop seeing ads in MIUI 12

While that’ll take care of most ads, you can still do some tweaks to make sure you catch ‘em all.

  1. In the same Password & security sub-menu, go to Privacy.
  2. Then tap Ad services and disable Personalised ad recommendations. This will basically turn off data collection to give you relevant ads.

Turn off ads from Downloads app

  1. Open the Downloads app.
  2. Tap the hamburger menu > Settings.
  3. Disable the toggle for Show recommended content. You’ll get a prompt here as well, just select okay.

Turn off ads from File Manager app

  1. Open File Manager app.
  2. Tap the hamburger menu on the top left.
  3. Go to About > disable Recommendations.

Turn off ads from the Music app

  1. Open the Music app.
  2. Head over to the hamburger menu > Service and settings
  3. Select Advanced settings > Receive recommendations.
  4. You can also disable other recommendations here like Online recommendations on startup and Song recommendations. Do note that disabling this will only turn off data collection from this app.

Turn off ads from Security app

  1. Open the Security app
  2. Tap on the Settings button > Receive recommendations.

Turn off ads from Themes app

  1. Open the Themes app.
  2. Go to My page > Settings
  3. Disable the toggle for Recommendations.

promoted apps MIUI promoted ads

Some default folders such as Tools and More Apps tend to show you Promoted apps when you open them.

 

Some default folders such as Tools and More Apps tend to show you Promoted apps when you open them. To disable them:

  1. Open Tools and More Apps folder > long-press on the name of the folder, in order to rename it.
  2. Turn the toggle off for Promoted apps.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro Chosen as the Best Selfie Camera Smartphone by DXOMark


Huawei Mate 40 Pro has been chosen as the smartphone with the best selfie camera by DxOMark benchmarking website. The phone’s selfie camera received 104 points in the tests, which is more than any other smartphone. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro sports a 13-megapixel selfie camera with an f/2.4 aperture. DxOMark noted that the camera delivered good face exposure down to low light levels and that the ‘simple fixed-focus solution’ worked well in the tests.

DxOMark, in its review, said that the selfie camera of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro offered a wide dynamic range, which can be useful in backlit situations where the background is brighter than the subject, as well as in other high-contrast scenes. The review noted that subjects are well focused in closeup shots and also when captured at an arm’s length.

DxOMark said that the colours of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro’s selfie camera were ‘mostly nice’ and offered good white balancing in low light. The selfie images clicked by the phone showed good detail and exposure, it added. While people in the back are slightly out of focus because of the fixed-focus lens, DxOMark said that the phone’s camera automatically switched to a super-wide mode.

Further, it added that the Huawei Mate 40 Pro’s display flash provides good exposures in dark conditions. In portrait mode the camera can create people pictures with a ‘mostly nice-looking simulated bokeh and blurred background.’

The Huawei Mate 40 Pro was launched in October 2020. Previously, the phone also got the second highest DxOMark ranking for its rear camera with 136 points. It has a triple rear camera setup featuring a 50-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.9 aperture, a 20-megapixel camera with an f/1.8 aperture, and a 12-megapixel camera with an f/3.4 aperture.

Huawei P40 Pro, meanwhile, ranked second in DxOMark ‘s list of smartphones with best selfie cameras with 103 points, while Asus ZenFone 7 Pro came in third with 101 points. Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G and Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G came in fourth and fifth, respectively, with both scoring 100 points each.

Redmi Could Launch the Cheapest Snapdragon 888-Powered Smartphone


Redmi phone with Snapdragon 888 SoC could be the cheapest in the market among smartphones powered by the latest Qualcomm mobile chipset. Xiaomi recently launched its Mi 11 flagship smartphone in China and now, its sub-brand Redmi has been tipped to be working on its own Snapdragon 888 SoC-powered phone. It is expected to come with codename Haydn model K11. Additionally, alleged live images of Redmi K40 have surfaced showing the rear camera module and hole-punch cutout design at the front.

Redmi is tipped to be working on a Snapdragon 888 SoC-powered smartphone that may be the cheapest offering with the new Qualcomm SoC, according to a post by known tipster Digital Chat Station (translated) on Weibo. While several companies have stated they will be launching flagship smartphones with the Snapdragon 888 SoC, Redmi could launch one that costs the least. However, as of now, there is no official information on the pricing for this phone but the tipster states it will have codename Haydn model K11.

In other news, alleged live images of Redmi K40 were shared by another tipster on Weibo. These show the front panel of the phone with a hole-punch cutout, the back panel with a quad rear camera setup, and a USB Type-C port alongside a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom.

Earlier this month, it was tipped that Redmi K40 will have a Pro and a vanilla variant, with the Pro variant featuring a Snapdragon 8-series SoC and the standard vanilla variant featuring a Snapdragon 7-series SoC. Redmi K40 could be powered by the unannounced Snapdragon 775 SoC while Redmi K40 Pro could be powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC (at the time, it was believed to be the Snapdragon 875 SoC that will power the phone).
