Huawei Mate 9 is another monstrous mobile phone that this Chinese manufacturer is bringing in the local market in the first week of December 2016. This time, it could be a decent show from the company unlike previous few launches of its flagship phones which were only symbolic and told the story of really tight budgets.
It was only until 2013 that Huawei mobile phones were less attractive for the audience in Pakistan but consistent hammering with reasonable phones at the middle tier and few top notch models have brought the chap into the limelight, and now it is targeting to knock down the giants of likes Apple and Samsung.
For Huawei, Pakistan region has stood out as one of the key markets in the world where its phones are generating a significant chunk of its global revenues.
Various key sellers at the local market have observed that although Huawei Pakistan is doing good in terms of numbers but the management has squeezed the marketing budgets due to reasons unknown.
It could be a change of strategy for 2016 as we have lately seen Huawei getting indulged into some music related performances for creating the wow factor and attracting a more loyal young audience.
We could see Huawei Mate 9 on sale in the local market by December 7 and an official announcement on 10th of December.
Although Huawei still believes in mega launches and it was no different in Germany at the global launch of Mate 9 but the new strategy for Pakistan could raise series of questions. Nevertheless, we really hope to see another quality gadget in December and if you people haven’t read about the famous Mate 9 yet, following brief specs can give you an idea.
