    I have two questions. Hope someone can help me..

    1) Does this phone have Gorilla Glass 4? There is conflicting information about it.

    2) I am living in Taiwan right now. DOES anybody know when this phone will first become available in Taiwan? I’m not sure how often Taiwan gets the new Huawei models after China does.

    Thanks for any help on these two questions!
