The CES 2017 has had some amazing moments so far and one of them was definitely when  Huawei announced that it will be adding Amazon's artificial intelligence application Alexa to its flagship smartphone for its US launch.
This of course, means when US consumers purchase a Mate 9 handset it will include the personal digital assistant developed by Amazon.
The Mate 9, a large-screen "phablet" marketed as a rival to the big handsets from Apple and Samsung, will be available to US buyers in "early 2017," the Chinese firm said at the Las Vegas tech show.


Acording  to the Chinese company, the Mate 9 will be the first smartphone to pre-install Amazon Alexa.
Alexa is Amazon's answer to Siri as it is a digital assistant that can control home devices and so on. Amazon had earlier stated that they would be making Alexa available to third parties.

While Alexa won't be preinstalled in phones for people outside the USA, it will be available as an update.




Huawei unveiled their Mate 9 smartphone in Munich, Germany promising that the Chinese smartphone is going to go head to head with the likes of Apple and Samsung in terms of quality and with an even better battery.
While at it, the Chinese company also taunted the South Korean giants Samsung a bit promising those in attendance that the phone would suffer "No Explosions" while charging.
Huawei consumer electronics chief Richard Yu jokingly promised got a lot of laughter from the crowd gathered at a hotel in the German city at the joke.
Huawei has set itself the ambitious target of becoming the largest smartphone maker by market share within three to four years.
According to market research firm IDC, Huawei held 9.3 percent of the global market in the second quarter of 2016, placing it third behind Samsung with 22.8 percent and Apple with 11.7 percent.
But Huawei holds the number one spot in its home market China and says it is making inroads into European markets such as Spain and Italy, where consumers often buy phones and SIM cards separately rather than bundled from their network operator.
To compete with the bigger brands, Yu highlighted some of the steps Huawei is taking to keep up and even surpass the others including improved processing and gaming performance, longer battery life and faster charging.
"The most important part of this phone is speed," he said.
He claimed that the phone would launch popular apps like WhatsApp and Twitter around 50 percent faster than competing models from Apple and Samsung.
