Huawei throws shade at Apple and Samsung in MWC teaser vid


With under a week to go until MWC is underway, manufacturers are ramping-up their efforts to draw publicity for their respective events. While next Monday will be a big one, featuring announcements from Samsung, Nokia, and Sony, they’re all going to be beaten to the punch by Huawei, which has an early press event scheduled for Sunday. In order to help remind us, the company published a new teaser video yesterday, and in addition to giving us a peek at what to expect from its event, Huawei manages to land a few jabs at Apple and Samsung.

We’ve already heard that Huawei may announce a new smartphone, two tablets, and possible even a smartwatch. Here, the company mentions a tablet with “a beautiful slim design” and a “huge battery,” as well as a multimedia tablet with “next generation” LTE support. As far as smartphones go, we hear about one with a killer front-facing camera, but that’s the extent of any details – could this be the Ascend D3? There’s no sign of a smartwatch at all.

The whole bit is framed as an interaction with a very Siri-like virtual assistant, and right at the end, having seen all these Huawei devices on the menu for Sunday, our narrator asks the phone if all this hardware is from “Fruit” or “Some song;” very cheeky, Huawei.

Check in with us Sunday morning to get the details on the company’s announcements.
