Huawei has established itself as a strong brand with the premium devices like Huawei P9 and Mate 9. Currently, Huawei stands as the third largest global brand and is focused on beating the giants like Apple and Samsung. With the premium range smartphones, Huawei is also now focusing on a virtual assistant. Huawei is working on its own virtual assistant to compete with Siri, Google assistant, and even the purposed Samsung’s Bixby.
A virtual assistant is not used widely today, though they are quite handy and they could be essential in the future. Seeing this opportunity Huawei is gearing up for its own version of the virtual assistant on the future devices. Currently, more than 100 people are working on this project. The project is mainly focused on the artificial intelligence, on its own native language i.e.; Chinese. Which means that Huawei has focused this virtual assistant for China mainly. This could be a huge opportunity for the Chinese giant to gain ground in China as the Google and its service cannot enter the Chinese market. With this Huawei can provide an alternative to Google’s assistant that too on its own native language.
With time Huawei will have to extend the presence to other markets too with its assistant, so they will have to careful with the management over other markets. To be the largest brand in a world it must grow in the markets like America and Europe. In these markets, Huawei will have to continue to provide service of Google and Amazon where those assistants are currently famous. With the improvement of its own assistant, they can gradually extend their assistant to these markets.
The assistant is now only in the development phase, by the time their assistant arrives on market, there will be a new assistant from Samsung, Bixby. Then the Huawei’s assistant will have more competition to compete with.
