While the Chinese manufacturer offers a range of devices across the smartphone spectrum, we’re told to expect a focus on first-tier devices going forward.
That’s the story according to DigiTimes, which in turn credits Chinese site tech.163.com, which in turn says the words came from CEO Richard Yu’s mouth.
And why should we expect a focus on those top-tier devices? Blame (or thank) Huawei’s “inability to compete with China-based low-price white-box vendors”.
To date, we’ve missed out on Huawei’s top-end devices in the UK, though they continually threaten to storm the country and undercut the flagships from competitors such as Samsung and HTC.
Instead, we’ve had to make do with the low-end chaps such as the trusty Huawei Ascend G300.
A spokesperson explained: “Availability of each device in the UK depends on which of our customers choose to range which product. We can’t say more at this point.”
Man, a £350 Huawei Ascend D2 would go down a treat. Let’s hope Huawei makes some headway in the months to come.
