Can be activated via its custom smart key

Huawei honor and Twitter have announced a partnership whereby the Twitter app will now be pre-loaded on the Huawei honor 8. The flagship honor 8 has been pre-programmed to open Twitter via its custom smart key – a function exclusive to the Middle East.


Users can access the social media app by double clicking the smart key, which has been incorporated into its 3D fingerprint sensor for slick functionality. It has a 0.4 second unlock capability, auto learning skill set and can be customised with up to three easy access options.

Chris Sun Baigong, Vice President Huawei honor Middle East CBG commented, “honor believes in the power of partnerships and is proud to be working with Twitter to offer a first of its kind user experience. With our new flagship smartphone, the honor 8, we are pushing boundaries by spearheading the development of innovative solutions for smartphone users.’
