Huawei Launches 6 Products in APAC Summer Product Launch

Huawei today launches 6 flagship products during its APAC Summer Product launch. The products are HUAWEI nova 8i smartphone, HUAWEI MatePad series tablet, (MatePad Pro 12.6-inch, HUAWEI MatePad Pro 10.8-inch and HUAWEI MatePad 11), HUAWEI Watch 3 series smartwatch, HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 and HUAWEI MateView and MateView GT monitors.

I believe a picture speaks a thousand words. You can see the highlights of each product below. And to find out more about the products, check out the Press Release below too.

HUAWEI MatePad Pro 12.6-inch

The HUAWEI MatePad Pro has a 12.6-inch screen with a large 10,800mAh battery. It is powered by a Kirin 9000E chip and has 8 built-in speakers. I love the HUAWEI M-Pencil. It is super sleek. BTW, the MatePad is powered by HarmonyOS, Huawei’s latest OS.

HUAWEI MatePad Pro 10.8-inch, MatePad 11

If you would like to have a smaller version of the MatePad Pro, the 10.8-inch will be a good fit. Or if you don’t need a Pro version, check out the MatePad 11 which has an 11-inch screen. Both are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chip.

HUAWEI Watch 3 Series

The HUAWEI Watch 3 series consist of the HUAWEI Watch 3 Active, Classic, and Stainless Steel. BTW, it also has a HUAWEI Watch 3 Pro version which is more premium. In Watch 3, the rotating crown and skin temperature detection are two more interesting features I look forward to. As for eSIM, I believe the major telecom companies will be able to support it.

HUAWEI FreeBuds 4

The FreeBuds 4 looks a lot like the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 but better. It has better open-fit noise cancellation now and still in the very small form factor.

HUAWEI nova 8i

The HUAWEI nova 8i has 66W SuperCharge. It is powered by Snapdragon and has 4,300mAh of battery life.


This is an interesting monitor. The HUAWEI MateView is for general usage, and if you have a Huawei laptop, smartphone, and Huawei range of products, it will be a breeze to connect them together.


The HUAWEI MateView GT is for gamers. It has a high refresh rate (165Hz) and large curve screen. It has a clever built-in speaker and smart dual microphones.

Unfortunately, there is no pricing yet. Will update again once I have them. In the meanwhile, check out the Press Release for more information.

Set to redefine traditional watches by exuding style and functionality, the watch 3 series feature a curved glass screen, 316L stainless steel case and comes with a brand-new 3D rotating crown that senses different levels of pressure and provides haptic feedback in response, making the watch comfortable to wear and easy to operate.

Connect for better Entertainment

HUAWEI FreeBuds 4

HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 is the first open-fit earbuds in the industry. Built with the Adaptive Ear Matching (AEM) noise cancellation technology, the Freebuds 4 is designed to deliver upgraded noise cancellation performance. When noise cancellation is switched on, the earbuds automatically detect the user’s ear shape to determine the optimum noise cancellation algorithm. For higher sound quality, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 uses a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) composite diaphragm. Weighing only 4.1g per earbud, the FreeBuds 4 is designed for comfortable everyday wear.

Dual device connection is supported on HUAWEI FreeBuds 4. Whether it is a Huawei smartphone, tablet, PC, smartwatch or HUAWEI Vision, or any other smart devices running Android, iOS or Windows, two devices can be connected to the HUAWEI FreeBuds 4 simultaneously. This allows users to enjoy their favourite music without having to miss any calls.
