HUAWEI is set to introduce its eagerly anticipated flagship smartphone, Mate 8, in Zambia, targeting high end users and cementing its position as one of the leading smartphone players in the world.

The phone comes with advanced security features and long battery life and will appeal to users with a busy business lifestyle. Users of the Mate 8 will benefit from security features that allow owners to wipe the phone’s data remotely in case it gets lost.

Speaking in Lusaka, Huawei Country Device Manager Li Mao noted that the Mate 8 smartphone boasts significantly enhanced power, efficiency and battery life to help maximise phone usage even during power surges.

“Professional smart phone users have a lack of choice when it comes to devices that meet their requirements,” he said.

“We have tried to keep this in mind when positioning the Mate 8. It is perfectly suited to business users with its large battery, super-efficient rapid charging, large screen and additional security features. Work life balance and increased productivity is what we wish for all our Mate 8 users.”

Li Mao added that Zambia has in recent years seen a high smartphone usage putting into consideration the growing consumer base that wants to be associated with premium products.

“The soon to be launched Mate 8 is the beginning of a series of high end products that will be entering into the market in 2016 as we aim to meet our customers’ needs,” he said.

Featuring the most powerful chipset, a high-capacity battery and stylish design – including a unique mocha brown color option – the Huawei Mate 8 is the ideal smartphone for today’s on-the-go professional. The Mate 8 is designed from the ground-up for productivity and its hardware and software have been fine-tuned to provide an elegant, efficient experience.

The device strikes a balance between high performance and long battery life, enabling people to stay connected and be more productive in every aspect of their lives.

Equipped with a 4000mAh high-density battery, the Mate 8 delivers industry-leading power efficiency offering over two days of normal usage. And with rapid charging technology, the phone is able to charge a day’s worth of power in just 30 minutes. In fact, regular users can go without charging their phone for 2.36 days, and heavy users can go without charging for 1.65 days. The Mate 8 also features advanced six-layer thermal mechanics, which allows higher heat dissipation, leading to an excellent handling experience and lower power consumption.

  1. YAH! BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT ZAMBIA NEEDS. ZAMBIA NEEDS THE CHINESE PHONE COMPANY TO SET UP THE MANUFACTURING FACTORY IN ONE OF THE MFEZs OF THEIR OWN, INSTEAD OF HAVING TO IMPORT THE PHONES FROM CHINA. ZAMBIA IS CENTRALLY POSITIONED IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF AFRICA. WHY CAN’T SOME OF THE PHONE COMPANIES (Huawei, Samsung, etc) SET UP MANUFACTURING COMPANIES INSTEAD OF JUST EXPLOITING ZAMBIAN BY ALWAYS SUBJECTING THEM TO IMPORTING FROM THEIR COUNTRIES? ALL THE RAW MATERIALS FOR PHONE ARE IN THE CENTRAL SOUTHERN PART OF AFRICA. IT WOULD BE EXTREMELY CHEAP TO MANUFACTURE PHONES (AND EVEN POWER TOOLS AND PLANTS) IN ZAMBIA AND EXTREMELY PROFITABLE FOR THE COMPANIES TO MAKE HUGE PROFITS BASED ON HIGH TURNOVER…

  2. …from @2. OTHER COUNTRIES SHOULDN’T BE LOOKING AT AFRICA AS THE ONLY PLACE TO EXPLOIT WHENEVER THEY WANT TO INITIATE, EXPERIMENT, PERFECT AND SELL WHILE THE IDEAS ARE BORN IN THEIR ORIGINAL COUNTRIES. NO. IT’S HIGH TIME CHINA, THE WEST, ETC STARTED LOOKING AT AFRICA WITH RESPECT. AFRICA HAS BY CROOKED FORCE PROVIDED SLAVES TO THE WEST, BRAINS AND MATERIAL WELL ABOVE ENOUGH FOR THESE COUNTRIES TO START POSITIVELY REASONING FAIRLY. AFRICA CAN’T ALWAYS BE THE FOR ALL EXPERIMENTATION.

  3. NOW, YOU AFRICANS ALSO, DON’T JUST SIT THERE AND MAKE YOURSELVES COMFORTABLE WITH OTHER (BAMWANA MALA YAMBI) PEOPLES’ EFFORTS. AFRICA SEEMS TO BE F00LISHLY (ENDLESSLY) COMFORTABLE WITH THAT. CHINA (JUST AS JAPAN) STARTED INDUSTRIALISATION BY STRIPPING OFF THE WEST’S TECHNOLOGY AND RE-ASSEMBLY IT SLOWLY-BY-SLOWLY, MAKING ALL NECESSARY MODIFICATIONS TO PERFECTION AND PERSONALISATION TO CHINA. NOW, YOU ARE BUYING HIGH-END TECHNOLOGY FROM THEM. WAKE, F00LS! YOU HAVE THE INFRASTRUCTURE AND MATERIAL FOR THAT. SLEEPING ZAMTEL IN CONJUNCTION WITH ZICTA, BUY THAT KA Huawei Mate 8 TODAY AND TOMORROW LAUNCH YOUR OWN Lamia Sex 0. WHILST AT UNI I WENT WITH INDIAN GUYS. THEY NEVER BOUGHT ANY TEXT BOOK IN THE UK…

  4. …from @4. DURING HOLIDAYS THEY WENT TO INDIA AND BOUGHT TEXTBOOKS AT LESS THAN £2- THE ONES COSTING £50+ IN THE UK. THESE BOOKS FOR THE WESTERN AUTHORS ARE MASS-PRINTED IN INDIA AND SOLD AT CHARITABLE PRICES. THEY LAUGHED AT US AFRICAN WHO BOUGHT THE BOOKS HERE. FOR SURE ZAMTEL, 5 YEARS IN EXISTENCE YOU HAVE NEVER PRODUCED EVEN A LAND PHONE? BT (British Telecoms) PRODUCES LAND PHONES AND MANY MORE ELECTRONIC GADGETS. ZESCO, DONKEY AGES IN EXISTENCE NOT EVEN A SIMPLE STOVE. YOU CHAPS- WHAT ARE YOUR ENGINEERS FOR? UKUSALULA FYE FIWAYA? YOU ARE ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC COMPANIE- MAKE YOUR ENGINEERS DO STUFF AND PAY THEM FOR DOING STUFF. AFRICANS, MULI FIPUBA?

  5. …from @5 MIND YOU YOU CANNOT MAKE PERFECTIONS ON SOMETHING YOU DID NOT INITIATE. MAKE SOMETHING AND START PERFECTING IT BIT BY BIT. BUT, SELL IT COMPETIVELY, CHEAP.
    THESE ARE THE IDEAS PROF CLIVE CHIRWA CAME WITH TO ZAMBIA- OF CREATING AN ENGINEERING DIVISION OF ZAMBIA RAILWAYS FOR NOT ONLY TO MAINTAIN TRAINS BUT MANUFACTURE TRAINS AS WELL. FELLOW ZAMBIAN ENGINEERS SABOTAGED HIM TO AVOID EMBARRASSMENT AND CHALLENGE. ZAMBIA PRODUCES ALL THE METALS AND OTHER MATERIALS TO MAKE A COMPLETE TRAIN AND PHONES. BUT YOU THINK BEING AN ENGINEER IS GOING TO FIX A PHONE. NO MAN! YOU HAVE TO BE ON THE DRAWING BOARD, DESIGNING PHONES AND TRAINS.

  6. I CAN’T BELIEVE LT HAS LET ME EXPRESS MYSELF THUS FAR. THEY NORMALLY F00LISHLY, CUT YOU SHORT LONG BEFORE YOU EVEN REACH HALF WAY. I ALWAYS WONDER WHY THEY DO THIS, BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME CONTRIBUTIONS I READ ON, THOUGH VERY FEW OCCASIONS WHICH ARE CARDINAL TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF ZAMBIA. ANYWAY, THANKS.

  7. Lusaka times these chap Peter can write ten or twenty times you let him others you block them what is wrong with that. Is he one of the PF officials who has paid you to publish his rabbish

  8. @ Peter , please do not use capital letters when writing. It is a sign that you are illiterate! If we look at your Grade 12 certificate, if at all you have it, English must be reflecting a very poor grade.

  9. Really laughable…all that and not a mention of the operating system in it or what version? These are substandard products they are bringing to our shores…no matter how good your battery’s smartphone is it all depends on how it optimises apps unless you have non.
