Within a few years Huawei entered the top 3 of smartphone manufacturers. Especially in Europe, where the company has gone head-to-head with names established by far earlier, often even surpassing them. This is because the Chinese giant has a strong history well established before becoming known to most people for their smartphones. Was born in 1987 from the mind of Ren Zhengfei, discussed personality that started from the construction of network infrastructures and then expanded to the rest of the technology sector. His name, "Huawei", Can be translated into"China is skilled“, A philosophy of commendation to the willingness of Chinese companies to demonstrate their skills in the rest of the world.

After making himself known among the experts with the production of products for telephone operators, including USB modems, routers and the like, he began to make his way in the mobile segment. The very first phones started arriving in the 2004, starting from Huawei C300, but it is in the 2005 that Huawei U626 is presented as the first 3G model. But if we talk about Android we must move to 2009, the year in which the MWC saw the debut of Huawei U8220. On a more mainstream level, the company is starting to be talked about in the 2012 with the launch of Huawei Ascend P1, the first real top of the now famous P. range

If we talk about the Mate range, instead, it is at CES 2013 that we see the launch of Huawei Ascend Mate. In both cases the various models were accompanied by the "Ascend" nomenclature, later abandoned by the 2015 onwards. And it is always in that year that Huawei establishes a partnership with Google for the production of Nexus 6P. If we want to say so, the real "fame" came in the next 2016 with Huawei P9, smartphone that made a lot of talk about itself thanks to an advanced dual camera and the collaboration with Leica.

From that year onwards Huawei's sales have gradually increased, especially in Europe, thanks also to the push in the various market segments. The series P Lite / P Smart it has known how to impose itself in the mid-range sector, thanks also to numerous models for all tastes (and pockets).

If we wanted to make a note of Huawei's commercial strategy, it would concern the excessive variety of models. Not only is he a very prolific producer (2018 models were launched only in 41), but the differentiation between China and Europe sometimes creates a bit of confusion. Without even considering the existence of Honor, which we will discuss later. Here, then, how to understand the differences between the various acronyms:

series P

Born in the 2012, the P series represents the main one in which the various top of the range annual stand out. But not only: for some years the company has branched the P family, giving rise to further classifications. These include today P Lite e P Smart, or mid-range models especially for the European market. But previously there were more, for example P Max e P Plus, or phablets (when there was still a difference). From the 2018 the series has been introduced P Pro, that is the top of the range complete with all the most valuable features.

Mate series

As with Samsung Galaxy Note, the Mate series represents the non-plus-ultra in Huawei. While the P series debuts at the start of the year, the Mate series is launched in the second half of the year. Born under the banner of phablets, it has evolved to offer ever more advanced technologies. Starting from the ninth generation, new categories have been created, ie Lite for the mid-ranges e Pro for the premium range. Variants have also been created in collaboration with Porsche, even more valuable (and expensive).

The Mate range also includes Huawei Mate X, or one of the very first folding smartphones to have made the debut in circulation.

Series Y

If we talk about the medium / low range, instead, the Y series comes into play.

Nova series

Here with the Nova series things get more complex, given that this is a range of smartphones born for the Chinese market. Later some models were brought exclusively to Europe, while others made their landing under another name.

Enjoy series

We conclude with the Enjoy series, another exclusive mid-range series for the Chinese market but which, from time to time, also makes its appearance in Europe under another name.



At the end of 2013 in China, its own sub-brand was introduced by Huawei Honor. Initially it was born with the intention of aspiring to the most youthful user, focusing especially on the online market. But in the following years it then extended to the more generalist market, also aspiring to sectors such as notebooks, wearables and various accessories.

Guide to tablets

Not just smartphones: Huawei has been on the tablet market for some time, making it one of the most successful players in the industry. All devices take the nomenclature MediaPad, although there is a differentiation between two ranges: M (medium / high band) and T (medium / low band).


Guide to notebooks

If the tablets were not enough, the range MateBook evolved from the concept of 2-in-1 tablet of the MWC 2016 to real laptops in the 2017.

Starting with the 2018, Huawei's software team decided to put the sticks in the wheel of the modding community. Huawei Device Co., Ltd announced the removal of the possibility to carry it out unlocking the bootloader. This is to avoid the possibility that third-party resellers may sell devices with counterfeit ROMs. There is still the possibility to make this release, but only through the paid service of FunkyHuawei. In this way you can have access to the installation of custom ROMs, several of which are distributed on the portal OpenKirin.
