Reading the title of the news, the question may arise: why are we writing about a phone from a brand that will soon be introduced in a market that does not affect us in the least, but there is a double twist in the story.

If this is indeed the case, this phone will also be powered by the Snapdragon 695 with a 5G modem, a 4000mAh battery and 66W fast charging, and the poster promises 256GB of storage. From Huawei’s side, the advantage of the agreement may be that they can say: not only own-brand devices run HarmonyOS, but it is also possible that the collaboration marks a change in strategy, and instead of a personal presence, more emphasis will be placed on partnerships in the future.
