Huawei launches three new products at first-ever live winter sale
Huawei at its very first-ever live winter sale hosted by SA comedians Nina Hastings and Skhumba launched three new products on 1 July – the Huawei Watch GT 2e smartwatch, the Huawei Y6P smartphone and the Huawei Matepad T8 tablet.
The Watch GT 2e boasts two-week long battery life, smart tracking for 100 trendy sports, and accurate heart rate monitoring. The I MatePad T8 tablet, a slimline tablet for the whole family, sports features guaranteed to offer hours of learning and entertainment. Huawei’s latest affordable smartphone, the Huawei Y6P, has a long-lasting battery, a 13MP triple camera and 64GB of storage.
1. Huawei Watch GT 2e: trendy streamlined design, leading sports device
This smartwatch is the latest addition to Huawei’s popular Watch GT 2 Series and is designed to inspire an active lifestyle.
Supported by two-week-long battery life, the device supports precise heart rate monitoring, abnormal heart rate reminders, pressure level monitoring and sleep monitoring features that allow users to understand their health status in real-time.
For the first time, Huawei has introduced a blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) monitoring feature to the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2e, which is key for these times when the focus is on respiratory health.
The Huawei Watch GT 2e also sports a new take on smartwatch design. Instead of following traditional designs where the watch face is separated from its strap, it has a classic round dial with an integrated strap for a streamlined, modern look.
The multi-functional watch face allows the user to customise the settings they want with more than 200 watch faces to choose from.
The Huawei Watch GT 2e supports 15 professional workout modes, including eight outdoor activities such as running, walking, swimming and hiking, and seven indoor activities. In professional workout modes, the WATCH GT 2e provides comprehensive monitoring that can track 190 types of data – all to help you get the most out of your workout.
2. The Huawei MatePad T8 Tablet: A smart tablet for study and entertainment
The new Huawei MatePad T8 tablet satisfies an increasing demand for affordable family tablets. This feature-packed tablet sports a slim, lightweight design, yet is robust enough for use by all family members.
Powered by an advanced octa-core chipset, and housing a large 5100mAh battery, the MatePad T8 tablet provides everything you need for hours of uninterrupted entertainment and education. The battery gives the user up to 12 hours of local 1080p video playback at a time.
The 8-inch display is just a little smaller than an A5 sheet of paper. Weighing just 310g, it is super convenient to pop into your bag on the go between work meetings or just if you want to take it out in a café. With a high 80% screen-to-body ratio, no space is wasted giving an immersive visual experience.
The MatePad T8 tablet offers a dedicated area for kids, the Kids Corner, where the parents can set a password for the kids to access educational content. To promote healthy device use, the Kids Corner includes four eye protection modes - blue light filter, posture alerts, bumpy road alerts, eBook mode - to provide a more comfortable experience.
3.The Huawei Y6p: Entry level phone with super long lasting battery
The Huawei Y6p offers an impressive package for an affordable price. One of its best features, though, is its large 5000mAh battery, making it a phone targeted at users who do a lot more with their phones.
The phone’s battery is large enough to provide up to 32 hours of video playback or even 20 hours of surfing on a single charge. In addition to this, the HUAWEI Y6p can also function as a power bank to charge other devices and even act as a backup storage for other devices.
The Huawei Y6p does not shy away from photography either, thanks to its 13MP Triple Camera, which consists of a 13MP main camera, a 5MP wide-angle camera and a 2MP depth camera. Upfront the HUAWEI Y6p also packs an 8MP front camera with advanced beautification algorithms for gorgeous selfies.
Another highlight feature of the Huawei Y6p is its audio capabilities. Boasting the Huawei SuperSound solution, this feature uses large sound chambers for audio components, which means better resonance and increased speaker volume and quality. The audio system is further improved upon with Huawei Histen 6.0, which gives a more immersive audio experience.
