From previously unranked, Huawei Device is now amongst the top three smartphone vendors according to the 3rd quarter 2013 IDC market research report.
“Nothing is impossible. We see possibilities all over the world, says local chief executive of global ICT company. “Huawei can be on top in the next 2-3 years.”
Huawei is set to invest in building the brand locally to make great technology available to all Filipino consumers, at a price that is right for them, through easily accessible channels.
In 2012, Huawei Device transformed from a traditionally B2B to B2C company, from a non-branded original design manufacturer to a Huawei brand OEM, from producing mainly feature phones to offering various high-end products.
“Building our own brand and putting our name on our products for consumers is the way forward as we grow to offer a range of products that include smartphones, mobile broadband devices, home devices, clouds, and consumer chipsets,” said Al Dimapilis, marketing head for Huawei consumer devices.
Recently, the company teamed up with Ms. Jasmine Curtis-Smith, the company’s first brand ambassador in the Philippines. Huawei believes that her young and optimistic image can boost the company’s image and core values. She will also work with Huawei’s “Make it Possible” brand campaign deals with creating new opportunities using innovations in technology.
The young wonder girl revealed her excitement about the partnership, “I am very happy to be the first ambassador of Huawei in the Philippines. This will be an opportunity for me to bring to our youth and young professionals a complete new experience and excitement in Huawei’s devices.”
