The 2016 Mobile World Congress is just a few weeks away and we now know that Huawei will be making an appearance at the event too. The company has just begun sending out invites to a press event to take place on February 21st, which is the day before the main event kicks off.
Unfortunately for us, Huawei didn’t include any images or teasers with the invite to tantalise us with, just the text below:
We invite you to join Richard Yu, Chief Executive Officer, Huawei Consumer Business Group, and other Huawei executives, for the global unveiling of Huawei’s newest device at Mobile World Congress 2016. Come see how Huawei continues to meet the demands of the next generation of mobile innovation.
It sounds like Huawei is just preparing to launch a single new device at the event, but it’s really not clear what the company has planned. Its flagship P9 would be in the running, but the latest rumors suggest that the phone, or possibly range of phones, will have a separate dedicated launch event that will take place in the weeks after MWC. Huawei did the same thing with the P8’s launch last year.
A smartwatch also seems rather unlikely, as the company announced two new ranges at CES this year already. Another MediaPad tablet come smartphone is a possibility or perhaps the company has a new mid-tier handset, although the MediaPad M2 and the GX8 we’re recently unveiled at CES too.
What would you like to see from Huawei at MWC 2016?
