Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) today hosted a virtual launch in Barcelona, Spain, during which it announced a series of new 5G products and strategies that demonstrate the full capabilities of its all-scenario ecosystem.
The key products announced include: HUAWEI Mate Xs, an evolution of the foldable device featuring cutting-edge hardware and software; HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G, a flagship 5G tablet that offers a premium all-scenario experience; and HUAWEI WiFi AX3 and HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2, two Wi-Fi 6+ enabled connectivity solutions; new additions to the HUAWEI MateBook flagship laptop series; and HUAWEI AppGallery, Huawei’s official Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) based app marketplace.
Pioneering technology empowers an improved experience on HUAWEI Mate Xs
The HUAWEI Mate X launched in 2019 represented a massive leap in smartphone technology. In 2020, Huawei is taking the novel foldable experience one step further with HUAWEI Mate Xs, Huawei’s most advanced and innovative smartphone yet.
The HUAWEI Mate Xs features the unique Falcon Wing design. A work of art in and of itself, the hinge enables a seamless transformation between smartphone and tablet modes. Furthermore, upgrades have also been made on the handset’s display materials, hinge design, 5G connectivity, and camera system: the flexible display now features double-layer optical polyimide that allows for incredible image clarity, color saturation, and brightness; the improved mechanical hinge includes new parts made of zirconium-based liquid metal, providing extra robustness and durability; the Kirin 990 5G embedded in HUAWEI Mate Xs delivers a superior 5G user experience that is faster, more complete and power efficient.
The Leica SuperSensing Quad Camera makes a return on the HUAWEI Mate Xs. Comprised of a 40MP SuperSensing camera, a 16MP ultra wide-angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, and a 3D Depth Sensing Camera, the powerful Leica camera system takes full advantage of with the foldable form factor, playing the role of both front and rear cameras to support a wide range of photographic use cases.
World’s first Wi-Fi 6+ powers incredible speeds on the HUAWEI Wi-Fi AX Series
As an important part of Huawei’s All-scenario Seamless AI Life strategy, connectivity solutions such as Wi-Fi routers, customer-premise equipment (CPE), and communication modules are the bridges connecting the 1+8+N ecosystem together to provide a secure, intuitive, smart and high-speed connected experience to consumers.
As a leader in 5G technology, Huawei is one of the main contributors to the formulation of the Wi-Fi 6 standard. Currently, the IEEE 802.11ax standard working group includes five technical experts from Huawei, one of whom is the sitting chairperson of the group. With 260 contributions submitted – accounting for 15 percent of all submissions – to the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) project, Huawei is the second most prominent contributor to the collaborative industry effort.
Rethink Creativity with the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G, tablet with the world’s highest screen-to-body ratio
As an important point of entry to the smart ecosystem, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G is designed to synergize with Huawei’s handsets, wearables, and other devices. It serves a key role in the Multi-screen Collaboration feature that delivers a seamless multi-device experience to consumers.
The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G features a 10.8-inch HD display with support for the cinema-grade DCI-P3 color gamut. With ultra-thin bezels, it has the world’s highest tablet screen-to-body ratio, at 90 percent. Embedded in the body of the lightweight tablet, the Kirin 990 5G SoC supports outstanding 5G connectivity while delivering high performance and power efficiency.
Running EMUI10, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro can be connected to other Huawei smartphones through Multi-Screen Collaboration, a Huawei Share feature. Once a connection is established, users can navigate and control both devices on the tablet’s display.
Yu added: “Moving forward, we will continue expanding our app ecosystem in the HUAWEI AppGallery with hopes to not only create a secure and reliable platform but also to provide consumers with more choice. The continued success of this thriving ecosystem will remain one of our highest priorities.”
Huawei is actively engaging with developers of popular apps around the world to grow the app ecosystem. Developers are welcome to be part of this ecosystem, and together with Huawei, work towards bringing a smarter app experience to consumers around the world.
