Huawei has called off the highly-awaited global launch even for its P40 series amid coronavirus fears. Rather than organizing the event, the tech giant intends to present the new mobile devices via a video broadcast.
The outbreak is turning the world upside down. Numerous events and meetings have been canceled because of the spread of the pathogen, along with the famed MWC 2020. Now, Huawei seems to want to avoid a big event for the release of the new P40 series of smartphones.
The report has been spotted in the Chinese social network, Weibo, in a teaser statement released by the company. In the announcement of the event, Huawei speaks of a worldwide online conference, rather than a local release event in Paris.
Therefore, on March 26th, we can sit at home and watch the presentation of the Huawei P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Lite mobile devices. Fans were also invited to the launch event in Paris, but, similar to most sporting events all over the world nowadays, it is going to be held with no on-sire audience.
More Events Are Being Called Off
Google and Apple have also already called off significant events and advertised an online event. The Google I/O developer conference, for instance, will take place in May in a digital environment as well. The usual close exchange between Google and developers is probably going to become much more challenging now.
At the end of this month, Apple could also use the digital world to present its new products. As per a piece of inside information, the expected announcement of new devices, including the iPhone SE 2 and the new iPad Pro, will be held through a video transmission.
