Huawei has today announced three are mid-range smartphones in the country to help it capture that market segment. These are the Huawei Y6Pro, GR3 and GR5. The Huawei Y6Pro was launched early last month and it is a very good thing to see it in the country this fast. Very few companies usually bring their latest devices into the country this first and we have to give it up to Huawei for doing this.
“At Huawei, we are building a broad portfolio of products catering for the varied taste of consumers. We understand that Kenya is a unique market wherein some consumers are price sensitive, others demand for quality and style in their mobile phones. Our range of products in this country reiterates our focus on providing smart devices targeting different segments of the local market. Our newly launched devices will help us to reach a wide range of consumers in Kenya,” Huawei Devices, Kenya Country Manager Mark Hemaobin said.
