It seems that Huawei is once again set on achieving a new goal, right after releasing the much hyped Huawei Ascend P6 they announced that the interest rate has been high as ever before and they are intending to sell a whopping 10 million units this year. This statement came personally from Huawei CEO Yu Chendong, he also shared that he is very proud of their latest device and appreciate the hard work that went into making it. The Huawei Ascend P6 is intended to be priced around €450 in Europe and CNY2,688 (around €327) in China , which is a very clever move from Huawei as this gives their new flagship a great advantage in terms of ‘Bang for Buck’. It was also revealed by some sources that thousands of Huawei Research and Development engineers were involved in creating this device and that they are confident that it can compete with all other flagships out there. Huawei also left nothing to chance as they have allocated 11 million dollar for marketing in China alone and another 30 million dollar more for promoting the device in Europe, which is amazing for just one single device. Overall we think that the Huawei Ascend P6 has a fair chance of achieving its goal and may even go as far as competing against the likes of Sony, Apple and Samsung.

After a lot of rumours; HTC has finally made the Butterfly S official. It seems to be a great improvement over the original Butterfly which was already an amazing device, the new HTC Butterfly S will be powered by a 1.9Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU , which is the same as the one Samsung Galaxy S4 is using. It also sounds like a great option for people who like multitasking as it sports an impressive 2 gigabytes of RAM. The HTC Butterfly S will be sporting a 5 inch full HD display with a pixel density of 440ppi, along with 16 gigabytes of storage, 25 gigabytes of free cloud storage and microSD car support. For you imaging needs you will get the same Ultra pixel camera as the HTC One, which packs a 1/3″ BSI sensor size with a 2.0 micron pixel size and wide F/2.0 aperture. Finally the operating system will be the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which will naturally be merged with the latest Sense UI Skin. Details about its dimension has also been confirmed, the HTC Butterfly S will measure 144.5 x 70.5 x 10.6mm and will weigh 160 grams, sounds thicker right? Well luckily for us there is a reason to that, as it packs a 3200mAh batter which is a pretty good improvement over its predecessor. For now the Butterfly S only has vague details about its release date and pricing, but we expect it to cost around the same as the HTC One did during its launch.
