Huawei is a company that has transformed from making B2B goods to consumer goods. A shift from targeting business clients, to retail customers.
Unlike some other Chinese brands, Huawei has started to understand the Indian market and consumer mindset. The company now launch products that are relevant.
Today, Huawei has launched a new mid-range mobile in India with 4 cameras available for Rs. 17,999.
The phone is Flipkart exclusive and will go on sale on 14th October 2017. Interestingly, Huawei launched the same phone as Huawei Maimang 6 in China and later launched it as Huawei Nova 2i in Malaysia.
Huawei is even adapting to the naming culture in India. So instead of Maiming, Huawei is calling the new phone as “Honor 9i” in India.
Intriguingly, Huawei is naming the phone differently for different markets. Probably a marketing insight they may have gathered from consumer research.
