MWC 2024 Cements Huawei’s Position as a Global High-end Fashion-forward Brand

The Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 was held on February 26 in Barcelona, Spain. At the event, Huawei showcased a lineup of high-end, fashion-forward, and technology-driven flagship products that attracted the attention of guests, notably the HUAWEI Mate 60 RS ULTIMATE DESIGN, HUAWEI FreeClip, and HUAWEI WATCH GT 4. Huawei’s booth was divided into ULTIMATE DESIGN, Fashion Forward, XMAGE, Creation of Beauty, and Fitness & Health scenario-based experience zones, which demonstrated how Huawei’s solutions have infused daily life with new technologies and enriching scenario-based experiences. While continuing to invest in technology innovation, Huawei is committed to making further breakthroughs and building rich and personalized lifestyles for global consumers.

“Huawei will continue to cement its position as a global high-end, fashion-forward, and technology-driven brand”, said Kevin Ho, COO of the Huawei Consumer Business Group, “In 2024, we will continue to increase R&D investments in smart devices, fitness & health, and digital creation. These efforts will make innovative products and services more accessible to users worldwide, and create cutting-edge, pioneering, and personalized lifestyles for consumers.”

Steady Huawei CBG business growth cements its position in the high-end market

Over the past year, Huawei CBG had made strides. It managed to make breakthroughs in the global high-end wearable, audio, tablet, PC, and phone markets, by releasing an intriguing lineup of high-end, fashion-forward, and technology-driven products. Huawei has held flagship product launch events in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Latin America, and Asia Pacific, demonstrating the company’s commitment to growing its global presence as a high-end brand.

Flagship smartphones released in 2023 included the HUAWEI Mate 60 Series and HUAWEI Mate X5, both of which helped make Huawei a major player in the high-end market and proved Huawei’s industry-leading technical strength to the whole world. Huawei also unveiled ULTIMATE DESIGN, a new ultra-high-end brand that offers distinctive aesthetics, craftsmanship, and technological innovations, to make Huawei stand out from the crowd. According to Counterpoint Research’s latest report, Huawei gained 5% of market share in the global high-end smartphone market in 2023, ranking third among all brands. In the first two weeks of 2024, Huawei ranked first in the Chinese market with the largest smartphone sales volume. By the end of 2023, global shipments of Huawei smart wearables exceeded 150 million, and Huawei has ranked first in China’s smart watch market for five consecutive years. The HUAWEI Health App has a user base of over 450 million. By 2023, a decade after the launch of its first tablet, Huawei had shipped over 100 million tablets.

Creating a new aesthetic paradigm with high-end designs

Huawei’s “Fashion Forward” scenario-based exhibition zone at MWC drew acclaim, and showcased Huawei’s emphasis on building a high-end fashion-forward brand. In 2023, Huawei unveiled its “Fashion Forward” campaign, with the goal of creating trendy and healthy lifestyles for consumers. While investing heavily in R&D, Huawei is committed to developing new design paradigms for each new product and leading the industry fashion trend.

Huawei is dedicated to providing high-end, fashion-forward, and technology-driven products and experiences to consumers through the use of premium materials, unique design language, and advanced manufacturing techniques. While developing HUAWEI Mate 60 RS ULTIMATE DESIGN, R&D personnel added rare earth elements to the red ceramics sintering process for the first time. Each phone undergoes 1400°C calcining and is subject to more than 50 processes during the 60-day manufacturing period, all of which are crucial to creating the vibrant red body. HUAWEI WATCH ULTIMATE DESIGN is Huawei’s first-ever gold smartwatch. It features 18K gold and Zirconium-based Liquid metal. HUAWEI FreeClip is Huawei’s first earbuds that come with the C-bridge Design. This design is durable and stable, bringing a breathable wearing experience and giving the earbuds a refreshingly original look and feel as well. HUAWEI WATCH GT 4 comes in an octagonal form, showcasing every intricate detail on the surface.

Up to now, Huawei has set up Aesthetics Research Centers in Paris, Milan, and London, to gain insight into the design and aesthetic trends of different cultures, draw from a diverse range of traditions, and incorporate design elements from both East and West. The Aesthetics Research Centers serve as the global platforms that fuel the continuous advancement of technologies and design, providing unique and unprecedented aesthetic experience to consumers.

Cutting-edge smart wearables provide comprehensive and precise health management

Huawei’s Fitness & Health scenario-based exhibition zone also attracted the gaze of the attending guests. Smart wearables is one of the most crucial sectors in Huawei CBG global business. In 2023, Huawei launched a lineup of flagship smart wearables, including HUAWEI WATCH Ultimate, the first daily smart watch to support two-way BeiDou satellite messaging, HUAWEI WATCH 4, which unveiled the all-new Health Glance feature, HUAWEI WATCH GT 4 which came with brand-new Activity Rings and the Stay Fit App, and HUAWEI WATCH ULTIMATE DESIGN, the first gold-plated smart watch ever made. Huawei has made continuous breakthroughs and innovations in cutting-edge technologies, ultimate aesthetics, health management, and science-based workouts, which have been fully recognized by global consumers. Three months after its launch, global shipments of HUAWEI WATCH GT 4 totaled over 2.5 million units, making HUAWEI WATCH GT 4 Huawei’s best-selling smart watch.

Having delved deep into the smart wearable industry for over a decade, Huawei has developed its own TruSeen™ vital sign monitoring technology, which has been upgraded five generations within eight years. This technology positions Huawei as a major player in the smart wearable industry. Huawei has filed over 800 smart wearable patent applications, ranking high in terms of R&D investment and number of patents in the fitness & health field. In October 2023, Huawei unveiled its third Health Lab — Huawei Finland Health Lab. The company has also built over 10 global R&D centers, accelerating the global layout of professional research in the wearable field. Huawei will continue to lead the way in introducing groundbreaking fitness & health services, and making scientific smart solutions accessible to all.

Huawei smart wearables will further gain insight into consumers’ core health pain points, increase R&D investment, and continuously make breakthroughs to benefit global consumers. In 2024, Huawei will prioritize three industry challenges: sleep, blood pressure, and mental health management. Through these efforts, Huawei will offer more accurate, convenient, and comprehensive health management solutions for global consumers.

Digital creation that witnesses the Creation of Beauty

HUAWEI MatePad Pro 13.2″, Huawei’s latest flagship tablet, and a myriad of works created by global creators using the tablet drew intense interest at MWC 2024. The tablet was launched in 2023 as the first tablet to support NearLink technology, marking the tenth year of Huawei tablets. It is also the thinnest tablet that’s ever been made with the narrowest bezels and highest screen-to-body ratio. It works seamlessly with HUAWEI M-Pencil (3rd generation), the first stylus to support 10,000+ pressure sensing levels, resulting in an unprecedented digital creation experience. Huawei’s global GoPaint Activity in 2023 invited digital creators to showcase works made on Huawei tablets. By developing cutting-edge tablet capabilities, Huawei aims to make the joy of creation more accessible to all, so that everyone can better express themselves.

At the event, Huawei noted that it will continue to increase its investment in digital creation in 2024 by prioritizing PaperMatte Display and NearLink technology, to provide consumers with more enhanced digital creation experiences. The GoPaint Activity hosted by Huawei will also witness an upgrade to cover more countries and regions, making it a genuine global force in the digital art community.

Huawei’s achievements in mobile imaging are no less noteworthy, with the launch of the XMAGE brand, which encompasses every aspect from optical systems to imaging technology and image processing. In 2023, Huawei’s flagship products, like HUAWEI Mate 60 Series, HUAWEI Mate X5, and HUAWEI P60 Series, came equipped with XMAGE capabilities, to provide users with a brand-new mobile photography experience. HUAWEI XMAGE Awards in 2023 saw over 600,000+ submissions from nearly 100 countries/regions. It aims to inspire users to capture and share the beauty in their midst, express their emotions, and showcase the power of smartphone photography.

Huawei’s showcase at MWC 2024 demonstrated the company’s commitment to the global high-end market. 2024 will be a critical year, as Huawei will break through boundaries and make high-end, fashion-forward, and technology-driven products, services, and experiences more accessible to users worldwide, with increased R&D investment in innovative technologies, thus setting a benchmark for the industry.

Despite the excitement that this season brings, the shift in weather can bring challenges to those with sensitive skin, causing them to feel dryness and irritation during this joyful time. 

Having sensitive skin is no joke. Certain skin reactions like itching and redness caused by dry skin can hinder you from doing many things and therefore impact your quality of life. With this, Aveeno understands the need for extra care—which is why we crafted your very own skincare survival guide that enables you and your skin to thrive amidst the holiday frenzy.

“What does your best self look like?” and other questions Flawless Face & Body Clinic experts want to help you answer in 2024

As we all bid farewell to the old and welcome the new, Flawless Face & Body Clinic extends a warm invitation to embark on a transformative journey towards a more radiant you in 2024.

Celebrate the clinic’s 22 years of beauty excellence and gear up for a prosperous New Year filled with confidence, self-discovery, and the unrivaled glow that comes from embracing your best self.

Flawless Face & Body Clinic understands that the New Year isn’t just a change in the calendar; people have collectively decided that it is an opportunity for personal evolution. As the Philippines’ trusted beauty BFF for over two decades, Flawless has the experience and expertise to understand the many layers of a truly holistic self-care routine—the different elements that compose one’s best self.

“Throughout my life and my career, I’ve learned that everyone’s 100% [best self] looks different—not just from each other, but from day to day,” says Flawless Founder and CEO Rubby Sy Coyiuto. “What people need to achieve that 100% also changes all the time, which is why we work so hard to be in-step not only with the latest scientific findings in beauty, but also with what people find to be fulfilling throughout their beauty journeys. For example, the reason some of our Beauty Packages are shareable is that some people come to Flawless clinics in groups, because for them, self-care is not a solo endeavor—it’s something they do with their friends. Personally, I love that concept.”

Flawless BFFs old and new, solo or in groups, can begin investing in their best selves via any of the following packages, available for purchase until the end of 2023:

  • 3+1 or 4+1 Medical and Non-medical Services (including Facials and Microdermabrasion services)

  • Shareable Beauty Squad Packages (25K and 50K)

  • Platinum Beauty Package (100K worth of products and services for 80K)

  • Powerhouse Packages (Discounts on Accutite, Thermolift, or Ultherapy when paired with YouthTox)

“We highly recommend the free consultation at any of our clinics,” adds Sy Coyiuto. “I think a big hindrance to one’s best self is being bombarded with skincare information that may not be pertinent to one’s needs—for example, I’ve seen a lot of people mistake oxidized sebaceous filaments for blackheads, then wonder why their blackhead treatment isn’t working. Even your physical beauty needs that expert hand to get the best results, otherwise, you’re looking at solutions that don’t seem to have any effect, and your confidence can take a hit in the long-term.”

At Flawless Face & Body Clinic, the emphasis is not only on physical beauty but also on the inner glow that comes from self-confidence. Let them guide you through an exciting chapter as you make 2024 the year you take charge of your beauty journey. Learn more via their website, Facebook page, Instagram, and TikTok.

Crazy Carabao champions Filipino-made premium craft beer innovation

Local premium craft beer brand Crazy Carabao may have already captured a strong following among liquor enthusiasts and built partnerships with high-end bars and restaurants nationwide, but it’s not about to rest on its laurels as it continues to keep the brand fresh and interesting with the introduction of distinctive styles of beers, an updated website and a more attractive packaging that pays homage to its Filipino roots. 

These exciting milestones were recently celebrated during a recent   Superhero-themed launch held at the new Odd Seoul 2 Bar in Quezon City. Hosted by the country’s popular multi-media personality Sam YG and Tiktok superstar Sammy J, the event gave guests the perfect opportunity to get to know the brand, enjoy the different Crazy Carabao variants with food pairings; beer drinking games, beer pong, and much more.  

Crazy Carabao has undoubtedly come a long way – what started out as a dream among friends after watching a Manny Pacquiao fight in Las Vegas, slowly turned into a reality with the acquisition of an abandoned building in Sta. Rosa, Laguna for brewery. With countless of beers brewed and drank, Crazy Carabao was officially launched in the market in 2014.

Now approaching its 10th year, Crazy Carabao takes pride in being a major player in the Philippines’ craft beer industry. Despite its growing popularity, Crazy Carabao is still brewed in small batches, with the same passion and dedication for quality and creativity. Drinkers can taste the natural freshness of the ingredients – malts are imported from Australia and Europe, and hops, which provides the bitterness, aroma and style, are grown in Yakami Valley located next to Seattle, USA, which is said to have some of the most fertile soil in the world, made richer with the ice water from off the Cascade Ranges.

The same principle in using fresh and premium ingredients is followed in the brand’s newest offering – the Newtons Noggin Apple Cider which has a fruity, fresh, and mild kick. It complements Crazy Carabao’s other existing products, namely Pilsner, Pale Ale, Wheat, Golden Ale and India Pale Ale. 

True to its roots, Crazy Carabao  has updated the look of its packaging,  paying tribute to its Filipino roots. To accompany the beer’s awesome taste, each Crazy Carabao bottle is now adorned with a single beaming color that shows vibrancy through the sunrays accentuated by symbols of Pinoy culture such as the Chocolate Hills, the jeepney, butanding, among others.  

On top of the new Crazy Carabao drink and packaging, the brand has also updated its website (https://crazycarabao.ph/) featuring a more vibrant design, with pages that are easier to navigate and, most importantly, a Beer Finder feature that lets users easily find the nearest outlets that sell Crazy Carabao – from bars, restaurants, groceries and stores around the country. 

Currently, Crazy Carabao is available in top bars and restaurants across Metro Manila, including  most of the 5-star hotels in the country and in all the main retailers such as S&R, The Marketplace, Landers Superstore, as well as in  Lazada, Shopee, and many other top online stores.

“Our goal as a craft beer company is to help many more Filipinos enjoy the different notes and unique styles of beer. Our following is rapidly growing and we want to keep it fresh and interesting for them by expanding our product portfolio to target the varying tastes of our customers,” said   Brad Hannam, one of the founders of Crazy Carabao. 

“We would like to thank you for keeping our beers flowing for these past years. Our goal and hope is that our beer touches your lips in many more years to come and to bring quality-made products and exceptional experience to each and every Filipinos! “ added  Grace Vicencio, Crazy Carabao’s Sales Manager.

 Need to Boost Your Skin Hydration Routine? 

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum and Water Gel are your two-step solution to healthy, hydrated skin!

Looks like it’s going to rain today! Oh wait, the sun’s back up. Mixed signals from the weatherman? We totally get you. The constant changes between hot and rainy weather in the Philippines dictates more than just your outfit (sweater weather? Or summer chic?) and the route you take to work. Like you, your skin takes a toll and constantly tries to compensate for the confusion. 

Philippine weather can cause skin dehydration. Humidity can also cause a lot of sweat, which combined with insufficient water intake, makes your skin barrier dry out and weaken. This is worsened by pollution, lack of sleep, smoking, alcohol, and caffeine intake—and this is a lot for our skin to handle. Our bodies need water, in the same way that our skin needs hydration. Without it, signs of skin dehydration begin to show.

Dehydration is a skin condition that one can experience regardless of skin type and is caused by the lack of water and moisture in our bodies, making the skin feel tight or appear dull and lifeless. Allowing your skin to get dehydrated is like a fast lane to skin aging. It manifests through dry, itchy, uneven skin. Under-eye circles and more noticeable fine lines also begin to appear. 

That is why hydration is key! Like a glass of water on a hot day, it is essential to consistently quench our skin’s thirst, ensuring skin hydration. Well-hydrated skin looks healthier and more glowing.

“For years, Neutrogena has been committed to delivering skin solutions through science-backed products. And in line with our company values, we continuously collaborate with scientists and dermatologists to learn more about how to achieve healthy skin. We use this knowledge to bring skincare solutions closer to everyone—through Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost line,” says Macy Agoncillo, brand manager for Neutrogena, Kenvue Philippines.


Luckily, Neutrogena offers a simple 2-step hydrating regimen perfect for people who want to achieve hydrated, healthy glass skin. Introducing Neutrogena’s hydrating duo: the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum and the Hydro Boost Water Gel—both containing an essential, crowd-favorite ingredient, hyaluronic acid.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum and the Hydro Boost Water Gel’s main ingredient, hyaluronic acid, helps increase the moisture content in the skin, which can have various skin benefits, such as reducing the appearance of fine lines and dullness, among others.
