Huawei is moving like it’s running a race and is really craving for the win. As it enters the international mobile industry, more surprises and impressive mobile device released are expected from the Chinese brand. Will it manage to catch up or even surpass the mobile giant Apple? One thing is for sure, Huawei has a long race to run.

The mobile brand is indeed running and running fast as it heads to the IFA trade show in Berlin this coming September. It will launch a new handset but it would be unlikely the Mate 8 that has been rumored to be hitting the mobile market late this year.

Rumors of the possible release of the Mate 8 this coming IFA are already making the rounds for several weeks this year. Now, it seems that a revamped version of the current Mate 7 will be launched in this event instead.

The Mate 7’s price in the PH was considered as one of the most competitive ones in the market, making it a hit in the country. You can check out Huawei Mate 7 price in Philippines at the PricePanda website. The continuous improvement of the specifications of the Huawei phone line together with the pocket-friendly price tag attached to the unit may lead it to becoming one of the most preferred mobile brands in Asia.

The new smartphone to be released in the IFA will be called the Mate 7 Plus or Mate 7 and will upgrade the specifications of the current version.

The Mate 7 Plus will feature the brand’s Kirin processor and is also expected to arrive with a Kirin 950 chip under its hood. But the chip may arrive by October making the Mate 8 the possible unit to take advantage of the wonders the Kirin 950 offers.

As for the sales performance of the brand, the China-based Huawei group had a healthy first half for 2015. Huawei caters both mobile devices and telecommunication equipment. It has managed to generate 175.9 billion Yuan or about $28.3 billion in revenue for the first six months of 2015. The amount soared 30% compared to the brand’s performance in the first 6 months of 2014. Its operating revenue, on the other hand stood, at 18 percent. The net income of the company was not revealed by Huawei.

The good thing about the Huawei brand is that it managed to emerge as a much preferred brand compared to Ericsson and Nokia, its notable contemporaries. It will not be a surprise if the brand becomes one of the top competitors of Apple as well.
