Huawei will hold its MWC event on March 1, here's what to expect
This year's MWC expo is just around the corner and one of the larger manufacturers out there, Huawei, revealed that its own MWC event will take place on March 1. 

The invitations are already flying around, yet we are not entirely sure what to expect from the large China-based maker.

According to them, Huawei will unveil a handful of "surprises that will empower you to set your dreams free". What does this mean? Is it the rumored Huawei Ascend Mate 8

Said device has been reportedly caught in the wild already. Given Huawei CEO's recent thoughts on Quad HD display, we are not keeping our hopes up for such a pixel-rich display on the next Huawei flagship.

We might also get treated to the successor to last year's Huawei Ascend P7, most likely the P8. We already heard that this device will likely miss the expo and will be unveiled later this year, but still, we shouldn't entirely rule out this possibility. We also heard that it might not feature the "Ascend" name at all, but regardless of the naming scheme, the manufacturer will most probably unveil something at MWC.

We guess we'll know more once March 1 comes.

"Given Huawei CEO's recent thoughts on Quad HD display, we are not keeping our hopes up for such a pixel-rich display on the next Huawei flagship." And he'd still be correct on his stance if he prioritizes their own Kirin SoC line's power draw aspect, as much as I'm considering shamu in my list this year.

I don't know about you, but, unless you are a pixel peeper, the only thing the increase in pixel density is good for is bragging rights & shorter battery life. I've had excellent luck with the "only 720p" display on my Huawei device, and will gladly give up an overly excessive DPI over battery life.

The Ascend Mate 7 is a high end phone that looks attractive on paper, but way too expensive for a phone made in China where so many other Chinese OEM's have come out with high end phones at a lower price. I can't imagine that the Mate 7 sold very well and neither will the Mate 8 unless it is in the $500 dollar range. Who is going to pay in the $700 to $800 range for a phone made in China when a lot of high end phones, such as for example, the LG G3 were less expensive??
