Huawei opens new flagship store in Vienna
Aside from its worldwide product availability, Huawei has established a new flagship store in Vienna, Austria. The smartphone maker is localizing its device availability and flagship services in Austria by taking its capital and largest city as one of the company’s bases.
According to the information, Huawei inaugurated the Vienna flagship store on 20th October. It’s located in the Kerntenstrasse which is one of Europe’s most prestigious stroller routes. The company chooses the center of Vienna for realizing the seamless interconnection between products and people.
Speaking of Vienna, it’s the 6th-largest city by population within city limits in the European Union and is widely popular for its expensive utilities and lifestyle. It must be the reason for the Chinese firm to increase the popularity and sales of its goods. The company seems to be confident about the positive response from the residents.
Below you can check the few clicks of the Vienna flagship store of Huawei-
Huawei Flagship Store:
The simplistic yet elegant design of the store is clearly visible in the images. This two-story emporium has artistic indoors with a chic design and spacious look. Moving ahead, the latest flagship and its signature products including smartphones, tablets, laptops, speakers, and displays are portraited inside the store.
Furthermore, many locals of the city join the opening ceremony in a massive number. However, the reports show that people have one more place where they can often check-in in Austria. Besides, the flagship store will be taking care of sales, after-sales, and product experience services.

Apple opposing Huawei MatePod trademark, applied for new headphones
Recently, Huawei has published a new trademark opposition decision document that contains the relevant info about the Huawei MatePod trademark which is being opposed by Apple. It’s another trademark dispute of the smartphone maker with the other companies.
As per the information extracted from the document, the China base form has previously applied for the Huawei MatePod trademark name. It includes 9 kinds of international classifications under headphones electronic chips.
However, the US-based phone maker believes that its headphone collections- AirPods, EarPods are knowingly forged by the Chinese firm. Thus, it’s strictly opposed to using this name in practice. The company doesn’t want its customers to get confused.
The Chinese State Intellectual Property Office announced its verdict in favor of Huawei and grant the Huawei MatePod trademark name after giving a satisfactory clarification to Apple.
Although, the intellectual believes that the cited trademark (Apple accessories) and opposed trademark (Huawei MatePod) share the same functionality, marketing, and belong to the same industry. Still, the English latter composition, pronunciation, and overall appearance of both trademarks are easily recognizable.
Hence, there is no clashing scenario, so it won’t cause any confusion to the consumer of both companies. Moreover, the opponent’s claim of imitating the names hasn’t adequate facts, so the intellectuals are granting permission to Huawei.
Huawei Trademark Dispute:
Sony and Huawei: The Japanese company files a lawsuit against the Huawei Watch GT series in the UK IPO office. The reason was its famous racing game series Gran Turismo’ which is generally abbreviated as GT. However, the China-based firm isn’t easy to give up its famous smartwatch series label.
Xiaomi and Huawei: The Chinese Intellectual Property Database previously published a case dispute regarding Xiaomi’s “MiService” and Huawei’s “MyService” trademark. Containing almost similar pronunciation, and text style, Xiaomi’s trademark has been rejected.
