Why such a big phone for the Middle East Market?
As per Huawei, entertainment and media industries are growing around the world to cater to content-on-demand as consumers spend more than 50 per cent of their data engaging with digital games and video. In the UAE, internet access is smartphone-centric, with more than 93 per cent of users using more of their smartphones than or at least as much of their smartphone as a desktop to access the internet.
Furthermore, nearly 60 per cent of UAE smartphone users uses their devices to watch online videos, including nearly 50 per cent watching movies via their smartphones.  Also, more than 80 per cent of the UAE’s smartphone users identify as “mobile gamers” including 86 per cent of users between 16- and 36-years.
The demand for a bigger, better smartphone has never been greater. Video content has become ubiquitous and available at the tap of an icon. Online video subscriptions to OTT media services – and traditional media players – are expected to double by 2022, by which time they are likely to approach the one billion milestones. 
Size, therefore, does matter, when it comes to the all-important decision of the right smartphone. For the ultimate viewing experience and for the most fulfilling gaming session, the screen can make all the difference. The UAE is currently ranked 41st worldwide amongst the world’s top 100 gaming markets based on their revenue estimates as of October 2018, with total revenue of US$226 million. 
For screens, the added benefits of a display with a smart brightness management solution that automatically optimizes screen brightness for different scenarios is valued as an asset by smartphone users. Furthermore, an optimum smartphone viewing or gaming experience requires a super sound system that ideally has dual stereo speakers. Superior speakers combined with HDR game mode and 5.1-surround support can offer a truly immersive and experience.
