Now, if you remember how TECNO hit the ground running to push their phones, you will understand the implications of this photograph:
Yes; with ever increasing visibility in market places all over the country, Huawei is clearly trying to replicate TECNO’s success. There is no denying that Huawei has churned out some really interesting Android and Windows Phone smartphones in recent times, and at good prices too – prices comparable to what TECNO is offering.
The Samsung versus TECNO face-off is about to become a TECNO versus Huawei slugfest. However, this is set to be a proper brawl out in the open where everyone can watch. Just imagine the skyline with red and blue clashing everywhere you turn. Yes; blue is for TECNO and red is for Huawei.
