Huawei may start selling third-party smartphones in its branded stores. According to the latest information circulating on Chinese social network Weibo, the device, codenamed "Monica", will be sold in Huawei's offline stores starting August 20.
It is currently unknown whether the device is owned by Huawei or is a third-party brand. Information on the price and specifications of the device has not been disclosed at this time.
At the moment there is no information about a smartphone or other Huawei device with a similar marking. Thus, it can be assumed that the Chinese tech giant will promote other brands in its stores and make them available through partnerships or something similar.
It is unlikely that Huawei will provide similar services to large manufacturers such as Xiaomi, for example. The Chinese tech giant is likely to sell models to network operators and smaller vendors. The device, code-named Monica, could be introduced by any local brand in China, but run on Huawei technologies such as HarmonyOS.
