Huawei is planning to introduce its latest flagship device, P10 in Kenya next month as it eyes a bigger pie of the smartphone market.
The device which made its debut at this year’s Mobile World Congress (#MWC17) held last month in Barcelona boasts of a combination of beautiful hardware and the latest advances in software. Even more, the device showcases striking colors and finishes, and introduces new Leica front and back cameras with cutting-edge portrait features to make every shot a cover shot.
The company is looking to build on the growth realized last year which saw its market share increase to 14 percent. This year, Huawei Mobile Kenya is targeting to grow its local sales by 50 percent by bringing more innovative products like P10 and GR5 2017 to the market.
Apart from launching the HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus during MWC, Huawei also unveiled its second-edition smartwatch, the HUAWEI WATCH 2 and Porsche Design HUAWEI Smartwatch. The 4G sports wearable combines innovative technology with authentic craftsmanship, and features an athletic and stylish lightweight design.
“As culture and technology continue to intersect in every aspect of our world, we want to deliver new products and experiences that ultimately improve and enhance life,” said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei Consumer Business Group. “Our impressive new HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus weave together the exceptional imaging capabilities of Leica and our stand-out design and hardware innovations to bring users a powerful device experience.”
Huawei’s products and services are available in more than 170 countries, and are used by a third of the world’s population, ranking third in the world in mobile phone shipments in 2015. Sixteen R&D centers have been set up in the United States, Germany, Sweden, Russia, India and China. Huawei Consumer Business Group is one of Huawei’s three business units and covers smartphones, PC and tablets, wearables and cloud services.
