Chinese manufacturer Huawei is reportedly developing a phablet that would compete directly with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. According to a report from gforgames, Huawei has contacted Wacom – Samsung’s S Pen stylus co-developer – for a “potential collaboration” on the project.
However, Huawei has since found another partner-in-scribe to assist with the production of its stylus, said to be able to "compete with Wacom's products". The new handset would be Huawei’s first device to incorporate a stylus, and suggests that Huawei is expanding its smartphone portfolio with the precise aim of tackling Samsung's dominance.
There are no price, release date or specs available just yet, although the device is said to incorporate “palm rejection” technology, which means the stylus would still function even if a hand rested on the device display. This is the first we’ve heard of such a rumor, but in principle it sounds like a possible next step for the ever-growing Huawei.
