Following HTC's lead, Huawei sets MWC event for March 1st
HTC isn’t the only Android manufacturer kicking off MWC with a March 1st press event, as Huawei has now sent out the invites for its own shin-dig, which the company promises will bring “surprises that will empower you to set your dreams free”. While it isn’t so clear what Huawei actually means by that, the rumor mill suggests will see a followup to the MediaPad X1 tablet, and there has also been whispers about the Huawei P8 — which could reportedly drop the Ascend branding from its name.
As for what both devices bring to the table? The MediaPad X2 will supposedly have a 1080p display, a Huawei Kirin processor and 3GB RAM. Not many other specifics are known. The details for the P8 are equally vague, with reports suggesting it will have a 5.2-inch slightly curved display and Kirin 930 processor.
It is true that Huawei isn’t nearly as much of a superstar as HTC, at least when it comes to brand recognition, particularly in the western markets. Still, Huawei remains one of the biggest players in the mobile world and we look forward to seeing what they introduce during MWC in March. Regardless of what happens, know that the AA team will be on the ground covering the event live and bringing you all the latest and greatest announcements.
