Huawei's products and services have covered over 170 countries, and a third of the population in the world, ranking third in the world in mobile phone shipments past year (2014). What we do know though, is one of the fanciest and best looking Android Wear smartwatches is now targeting women specifically. Today, Huawei has set the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 as its stage to unveil its latest flagship, the Mate 8 phablet. With this success, Huawei's revenue climbed to US$20 billion, nearly 70 percent increase in year-over-year earnings.
Huawei announced five new devices at CES 2016.
Huawei has officially launched its Mate 8 smartphone, and is keen to highlight the technological sophistication of the device. It also sent a clear message to the United States consumers that Huawei is a premium brand. Ltd. are household names in Canada, despite ZTE being North America's fourth-largest smartphone maker (behind Samsung, Apple and LG) and Huawei being the manufacturer behind the popular Google Nexus 6P smartphone. The company also unveiled two new versions of its smartwatch - called Jewel and Elegant - which appear aimed at the luxury segment occupied by Apple Watch. To do so, Huawei is introducing a new way to interact with a phone: by knocking on the screen twice with two knuckles.
Each of the watches has 10 new exclusive feminine watch faces, but the real highlight is the Jewel model, which features 68 1.5mm Swarovski Zirconia crystals around the 400×400 display. Both the variants also come with customized feminine watch faces.

Back in November, Huawei announced its next entry in the Mate series - the Mate 8. "It strikes the flawless balance between high performance and long battery life, enabling people to stay connected and be more productive in every facet of their lives", said Kevin Ho, President, Handset Business, and Huawei Consumer BG.
Skilton believes it is due to a cultural shift made by the company towards, what the CEO described previous year in its European conference in Zurich, as a new way of thinking. This global launch of the Mate 8 also indicates Huawei's inclination towards making high-end smartphone models.
