honor 30 pro plus review rear in hand

  • Huawei is reportedly in talks to sell off parts of its Honor unit.
  • It’s believed that Digital China, TCL, and Xiaomi are interested in the deal.

US sanctions against Huawei mean that the company’s smartphone business has suffered in a big way. Between its crippled in-house chipset division and the lack of Google support, it’s becoming increasingly tough for the firm to keep producing phones.

These troubles extend to its Honor sub-brand too, but Reuters now reports that Huawei is in talks to sell off parts of the Honor business in a deal potentially worth up to 25 billion yuan (~$3.7 billion).

The report, citing “people with knowledge of the matter,” alleges that Honor’s brand, research and development infrastructure, and associated supply chain management business could be sold under the deal. However, the newswire’s sources caution that this hasn’t been finalized yet.

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Huawei Technologies Co Ltd is in talks with Digital China Group Co Ltd <000034.SZ> and other suitors to sell parts of its Honor smartphone unit in a deal that could fetch up to 25 billion yuan ($3.7 billion), people with knowledge of the matter said.

Embattled Huawei is resetting its priorities in the face of U.S. sanctions and will focus on its higher-end Huawei phones rather than the Honor brand which is aimed at young people and the budget conscious, they said.

The assets to be sold have yet to be finalised but could include Honor’s brand, research & development capabilities and related supply chain management business, two of the people said.

The deal may be an all-cash sale and could end up smaller, worth somewhere between 15 billion yuan and 25 billion yuan, one of the people said.

A new mobile app has made it possible to analyze the genome of the SARS-CoV-2 virus on a smartphone in less than half an hour.


Cutting-edge nanopore devices have enabled scientists to read or ‘sequence’ the genetic material in a biological sample outside a laboratory, however analyzing the raw data has still required access to high-end computing power—until now.

The app Genopo, developed by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, in collaboration with the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka, makes genomics more accessible to remote or under-resourced regions, as well as the hospital bedside.

“Not everyone has access to the high-power computing resources that are required for DNA and RNA analysis, but most people have access to a smartphone,” says co-senior author Dr. Ira Deveson, who heads the Genomic Technologies Group at Garvan’s

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Three of Apple Inc’s top contract manufacturers plan to invest a total of almost $900 million in India in the next five years to tap into a new production-linked incentive plan, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron all plan to make investments under the scheme, said the sources, who asked not to be named as the discussions are private.

India’s new $6.65 billion production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme offers companies cash incentives on any increase in sales of locally-made smartphones over the next five years, compared with 2019-20 levels. The scheme aims to help transform India into an export manufacturing hub.
