Talk about a fast follower.

Huawei said on Tuesday that it will have a mobile event on June 18 in London. That’s just two days before the London event that Samsung recently announced.

The invite is short on details, but it asks reporters to join Huawei consumer business CEO Richard Yu “to celebrate a new era in elegance in technology with the exclusive launch of Huawei’s new product and more.”

Samsung, meanwhile, was also light on specifics, but did promise news in both its Android-based Galaxy and Windows-based Ativ product lines.

For more on Huawei’s efforts to move from a serious player in phones to a major brand in phones, check out this interview I did with Yu at Mobile World Congress in March.
