In a momentous product launch event, Huawei Technologies (HWT.UL) extended its heartfelt appreciation to China for its unwavering support. The event, eagerly anticipated due to the tech giant’s recent challenges with U.S. restrictions, promised to unveil further insights into its latest innovation, the Mate 60 smartphone series.
The Mate 60 series, which made its quiet debut just last month, has garnered significant attention from Chinese state media, serving as a symbol of Huawei’s resilience in the face of the U.S. sanctions that have posed obstacles since 2019. These restrictions had severely curtailed the company’s access to cutting-edge chipmaking technology and placed significant strains on its smartphone division.
While Huawei has chosen to remain somewhat tight-lipped regarding the comprehensive capabilities of the Mate 60 series, early adopters and industry analysts who have acquired the Mate 60 Pro have reported its utilization of a domestically produced chip and its ability to harness the power of 5G connectivity.
At the commencement of the event, Yu Chengdong, the CEO of Huawei’s consumer business group, expressed his deep appreciation with a special acknowledgment of the entire nation, particularly recognizing the support garnered since the initiation of the Mate 60 Pro Pioneer Program. As Yu delivered his remarks, the audience resounded with the chant “far, far ahead,” a phrase that has resonated throughout Chinese social media, symbolizing Huawei’s continued competitiveness and innovation.
Yu further underscored the positive reception of Huawei’s products in the market, emphasizing the trust they have garnered among consumers. He also highlighted the company’s unwavering commitment to meet the growing demand, with Huawei working tirelessly to expand production to ensure that more individuals have the opportunity to experience their products. This momentous event unfolded within the confines of a stadium in Shenzhen and was broadcast live across a multitude of Huawei stores, reaching 156 local media outlets and Chinese social media platforms alike.
