Huawei Launches the Mate 8 Limited Edition signed by Lionel Messi



Update: As we exclusively reported earlier, Huawei announced the Limited Edition Huawei Mate 8 signed by Messi. There are no changes in the specifications or the design of the device. It comes with 4GB of RAM and128GB of internal storage. The device is priced at 4399 Yuan (approx $670 / Rs. 45,250), same as the regular Mate 8 with same storage and RAM. It will be available only in Mocha Gold color. As of now there is no information about the availability of the Messi signed Mate 8 outside of China.

Earlier: May 17th, 2016 – In November 2015, Huawei launched the 6-inch phablet Mate 8 at an exclusive event held in China. It comes with high-end specifications packed into a premium metal build body. The device was later brought to the global markets by launching at the CES 2016. It had been a huge hit in China where it sold more than 10 million units in less than a month.

We know that couple of months backs, Huawei has appointed Lionel Messi as their global brand ambassador. Now the company had announced to launch the “Limited Edition Mate 8 signed by Messi” on May 24th. We expect only the high-end 4GB RAM variant with 128GB built-in storage will be launched. It is supposed to be priced same as the current price tag of 4399 Yuan.

In 2016, the Chinese brands have been very aggressive in marketing and promotions. Recently we also exclusively covered about the possible chances of ZTE’s sub-brand Nubia to rope-in Cristiano Ronaldo as their brand ambassador. To add much heat to the above speculation, two days back he had also opened his official account on the Chinese social networking site Weibo.

Huawei, the third largest global smartphone brand, recently launched the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus with Leica branded dual rear camera setup. It also the largest smartphone brand in its home country where Samsung and Apple aren’t even in the top 5 list. Other top Chinese brands, OPPO and Vivo had sponsored for two of the largest cricket tournaments in the world.

As of now, there is no news about bringing the Limited Edition Mate 8 to the western markets. While we can hear more news about the device on the launch day, stay tuned on Phoneradar!
