WATCH: Huawei Shows Off Matebook Pro, P20 Smartphone And More

“We really have had quite a year trying to keep inventory in stock because everything we put in the channel sells right through,” says Teri Daley, VP of Public Relations at Huawei.

The start of fall means the holiday shopping season is right around the corner. And CRNtv recently got a look at what Huawei has in store for shoppers at Pepcom’s Holiday Spectacular in New York City.

“We really have had quite a year trying to keep inventory in stock because everything we put in the channel sells right through,” said Teri Daley, a spokeswoman for Huawei. “We’re specking them high. We’re building them very premium, but we are bringing them at such a competitive price that consumers buy them.”

Over the past year, the Chinese brand has overtaken Apple to become the second most popular smartphone brand.

“Everybody really knows us for smartphones,” said Daley. “We were the first company to introduce AI capabilities that makes every individual a professional photographer.

Daley discussed the Mate 10 Pro and the award-winning P20, which Daley says has won every imaging award in the smartphone category. What sets the Huawei P20 apart is its Leica Dual Camera. It can capture blur-free, handheld shots in low-light using its night mode. Its next smartphone, the Mate 20 Pro, will be unveiled during a Oct. 16 launch event in London.

CRNtv also got a look at the Matebook X pro, which Daley calls one of the best priced, highest-featured laptops on the market today. The price starts at $1,200 and the laptop features a hidden pop-up camera.

“So, you can remove the camera from the screen and get more screen real estate while taking away the one thing everyone hates: the little camera,” she said.

Daley also discussed Huawei’s tablets: the MediaPad M5 and MediaPad M5 Pro. The tablet has a 2.5D curved glass and features Harman Kardon speakers, delivering quality sound with more bass, and no distortion. A two-hour charge lets consumers view 1080P videos for up to 11 hours.
