Phones 4u and Huawei have announced a partnership that’ll see the retailer stocking Huawei’s own-brand Blaze and Vision smartphones by the end of the year. They’re the first of the company’s own-brand smartphones destined for the UK.
Both the 1GHz Huawei Vision and the 800MHz Blaze will run Android v2.3; the Huawei Blaze will launch exclusively with Phones4u before becoming available via other retailers.
Scott Hooton, Trading Director at Phones 4u, said “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Huawei to bring our customers an exciting new range of high-end, great value smartphones that offer style as well as substance in time for Christmas. With the new Vision and Blaze devices, it’s clear that Huawei is serious about becoming a key challenger in the competitive smartphone space. We’re delighted to be starting this journey with Huawei, which presents a massive opportunity for both companies and more innovation and choice for our customers.”
Pricing hasn’t yet been confirmed.
