Huawei P8 Lite Saves a Guy from a Bullet, Brand offers New P9 Lite as a Replacement



From the last few months, we have seen several smartphone explosions from brands like Samsung, Xiaomi, and OnePlus where the users even have got hurt in a few incidents. Now, here’s a piece of news from Huawei where a smartphone has saved the life of its owner. Siraaj Abrahams, a 41-year old South African was returning home after a birthday party in his friend’s house in August. Just outside the gate of his house, few robbers shot him and ran away with the R300 ($20) cash. He lost consciousness after the bullet hit him and after he woke up, all he had was a small mark on his chest and a hole on his jacket.

The bullet hit the Huawei P8 Lite which he had unknowingly placed in the chest pocket of his jacket. As the device was completely destroyed by the 9mm bullet, the company provided the latest P9 Lite smartphone as a replacement. Interestingly, the victim was thinking to leave the phone at his home as the battery was almost dead but later decided to charge at this friends house, so carried along with him.

Apart from providing a new smartphone, the Marketing Director for Huawei’s Sub-Saharan Africa region took Siraaj and his family to launch. Huawei also offered a free VIP entry to Siraaj for all the home matches of the Ajax Cape Town soccer team which is also sponsored by the company. This is not the first time we are hearing about a smartphone saving the life from a gunshot. A Samsung smartphone saved the life of its user in the 2015 Paris attacks.

Huawei which is largest smartphone brand in its home country is also the third largest brand in the global market. Apart from expanding to western markets, Huawei is also betting big in Africa. It was the third largest smartphone brand next to Samsung and Apple in Africa in 2015, and now, we expect the company to capture even larger pie with recently launched Huawei P9 and P9 Lite smartphones. On a similar note the brand has recently launched the P9 Smartphone in India and is going to launch the Honor 8 in the coming month.
