MANILA, October 22, 2015 – Huawei unveiled its latest addition to the premium Huawei Mate line – the Huawei Mate S – on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 at Nobu Restaurant Manila, City of Dreams which was well attended by celebrities and influencers in various fields.
Hosted by Sarah Meier, the launch titled “Senses” revealed six Huawei Mate S icons: Martine Cajucom, co-owner and creative director of Sunnies Studios; Cheryl Tiu, international journalist and editor-at-large of Lifestyle Asia; Suki Salvador, AVP for creatives and production of One Mega Group and editor-in-chief of MegaMan and Condo Living magazines; JR Isaac, publisher of Circuit Magazine; Amina Aranaz-Alunan, designer and owner of ARANAZ and founder of SoFA Design Institute; and Tim Yap, TV host, columnist and eventologist.
“The icons embody the essence of the brand which is built on an empowering history of making dreams possible. They have all made it in their respective fields but each of them retain that certain groundedness. Furthermore, the Huawei Mate S fits their lifestyles perfectly,” said Corinne Bacani, Senior Marketing Manager, Huawei Philippines.
The event featured performances by premier violinist John Lesaca and songstress Nicole Asensio. Both of them also performed the uplifting Huawei brand song, “Dream It Possible”, which first debuted during the Huawei Mate S launch in Berlin, Germany in September this year.
“The song talks about how you’re unstoppable when your dreams come alive. It also encourages listeners to ‘take a shot, chase the sun and find the beautiful’. This song is Huawei’s brand story which has always been steeped in bringing telecommunications to the future,” said Jojo Vega, Director of the Consumer Business Group, Huawei Philippines.
“But with the Huawei Mate S, we prove that no matter how future-minded we are when it comes to innovations, we have always kept an anchor on the essentials: communication, interaction, connection. In real life, all these are facilitated by something more powerful than words: touch,” Vega added.
After the Huawei Mate S was revealed, Nobu’s signature exclusive Sake Ceremonial Toast was led by Vega and Charles Wu, Country Manager of the Consumer Business Group, Huawei Philippines. At the end of the night, three attendees won their own Huawei Mate S units: AJ Dee of The Filo Dapper, Tessa Prieto of The Philippine Daily Inquirer and Marbbie Tagabucba of Garage Magazine.
