Chinese manufacturer Huawei just released a teaser video unveiling some of its plans for Mobile World Congress next week.

The video talks about a new tablet with “a beautiful slim design” and long battery life with “days of use,” a new smartphone with “an amazing front camera” and a “multimedia tablet” that can connect to “next-generation LTE networks.”

Besides talking about Huawei’s new devices, the video uses some marketing that takes shots at both Apple and Samsung. To start, the narrator in the promo is talking to an iPhone-like device with a Siri-like voice, with a Chinese accent though.

Second, the narrator asks the fake smartphone assistant if they’re made by “Fruit” or “Somesong,” which it replies, “No, they are Huawei.”

All that being said, we can expect two new tablets and a smartphone from Huawei during its Feb. 23 event in Barcelona.
