News about Huawei Mate 8

Chinese smartphone giants, Huawei first entered the high-end smartphone scene in 2012 and they are unlikely to leave anytime soon with their recent achievement. Huawei has just announced that they have shipped more than 10 million copies of their flagship Huawei P9 and P9 Plus’ worldwide – making them the first models in Huawei’s inventory to achieve this remarkable feat. Despite a slow international market in terms of smartphone sales in 2016, this impressive result has proven that Huawei’s decision to invest in international markets is paying off handsomely. The announcement was made by Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) in a press release released at the end of December 2016.

The smartphone industry is ever evolving, with manufacturers constantly introducing new features to impress consumers and gain an upper hand on competitors. One of these features that has successfully gained the attention of consumers is the inclusion of watermarks on pictures taken by the smartphone’s camera.

Huawei first released the Huawei P8 with its lower cost sibling, the Huawei P8 Lite in 2015. However, the Chinese firm decided to revive the P8 Lite by releasing an upgraded and more powerful 2017 version of the smartphone. What does the 2017 edition of the P8 Lite offer to its users? Over the years, Huawei has proven that they are able to produce good-quality smartphones and the P8 Lite 2017 is no exception.
