They say behind every great design is an even bigger story. The design is actually the silent ambassador of our brands. The cooler the design, the more it engages our customers.

Huawei recently launched their latest flagship smartphone alongside two other models at the Huawei Mate 8 on the second day of March 2016 at an event held at the Solaire Grand Ballroom in Pasay city.
