Not sure how to pronounce Huawei? Watch this, laugh and learn

HuaweiHuawei is growing into a bigger name in Australia with each device launch that goes by, but they’ve been in Australia for a while — they do a lot more than mobile phones, having produced a wide range of infrastructure and other devices for the Australian market. With their consumer presence growing and growing, its probably time that everyone figured out how to actually pronounce their name.

Is it Who-ah-way? Hwa-way? Well, not to cut to the chase, but its pronounced Wah-Way, and to make sure people understand the pronunciation, while having a bit of a giggle, Huawei put together a Youtube video with a bunch of individuals pronouncing a number of words that people tend to struggle with. Have a watch, have a laugh and let us know what you think.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

I’m from china and I can say that the correct pronunciation is more like Hoo-ah Way

Won’t be long until most people can pronounce their name properly. I remember when Nestles decided that they’d had enough with people calling them Nes-elles instead of Nes-lay. Didn’t take long for everyone to catch on.

Surprisingly well done and actually funny. Was expecting some cringe-worthy crap like what Samsung pushes out, but this was done well.

Good thing I’ve been pronouncing it correctly “wah-whey”.
