  1. In Mandarin the "hu" sounds like the old-fashioned English "wh" sound (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyCXAYBi9HU). But in Cantonese, it is just "w" sound. So, the pronunciation in the video is in fact Cantonese, not Mandarin. Although I am a Cantonese, most Chinese would consider the Mandarin's version the proper one because Mandarin is the official language in China. Please see this video for a more correct pronunciation of "Huawei": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNZmNM8BflA.
