Just a few days ago, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been officially announced, carrying numerous improvements compared to its predecessor.
Little do they know, Huawei was definitely watching as they threw a shade on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on Twitter.
The Chinese electronics giant unleashed a ‘not-so-subtle’ prod against its South Korean rival through a tweet showing off Huawei P20 Pro’s vast improvement over the P10 series. These include a triple camera setup, 40-megapixel lens, 5x zoom, and more.
The tweet is accompanied with an image of P10 next to P20 and even emphasized it with the strapline: ‘This is called a real generation upgrade’.

Huawei did not call out Samsung by name but they were clearly the target — amidst their release of Galaxy Note 9 with notable improvements such as the new S Pen, bigger battery, and RAM increase against its predecessors Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9/S9 Plus.
Even if you’re pleased or not with the Galaxy Note 9, there’s no doubt that Huawei sought to capitalize and remain assertive. On the same tweet, Huawei hints “Imagine what will come next…”
With rumors about Mate 20 series just around the corner, we’ll have to wait and see what Huawei can offer.
