Huawei rumored to offering Samsung designers more money and higher level positions to work for them

Is Huawei trying to steal away Samsung’s designers and technicians? If so, you certainly can’t blame them for the effort as Samsung is most certainly poised to have their most successful Galaxy S ever with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. The refined and refreshed look of the S6 and S6 Edge seems to have caught Huawei’s attention as reports are coming that the company is not only offering more money, but higher level positions are also being dangled to Samsung’s design engineers. More independence is also rumored to be promised to these candidates which is essentially an engineers/designers dream. If these people were to take Huawei’s offer, you certainly can’t blame them.

Do you guys think Samsung’s own engineers can steer Huawei into a serious contender in the mobile phone industry?

Earlier today, Huawei took to its official YouTube channel to tease the launch of its upcoming flagship smartphone, the P8. The video itself doesn’t reveal anything new about the device, nor does its accompanying caption: “Catch light to spark infinite possibilities”. Although, the repeated use of bright colors during the 1 min 47 sec clip leads us to believe that the 13-megapixel camera on board will include a unique light-capturing feature.
