After Mate 50, Huawei Mate Xs 2 to support satellite communication feature



Huawei Mate Xs 2 satellite communication feature

As per the recent reports, Huawei Mate Xs 2 foldable phone could be the next to use the satellite communication feature by Beidou. According to Huawei, the latest Mate 50 series is the first to support this feature.

Beidou communication is an emerging wireless technology and its biggest feature is its SMS service. It’s a unique invention of China’s Beidou satellite navigation system and a major advantage.

It allows users to send short messages and locations via the Beidou satellite messages even when they are in an area without network connectivity. This feature also adds navigational tools for traveling.

The company has described this technology as “pierce the sky upwards”.

The other models could not use this function through software upgrades. Although, mobile phones from other brands can get Beidou messages in the regions without cellular services.

Also, Huawei Mate Xs 2 being a prominent foldable phone could get this satellite communication function in the future.

Why Huawei Mate Xs 2 should get this function?

It is the latest foldable phone by Huawei. Also, it is the first to use tri-band Wi-Fi. As it is based on tri-band WiFi connectivity you can easily carry out the heaviest network tasks with the phone.

The tri-band routers support three separate bands that include two 5GHz frequency bands and one 2.4GHz frequency band. In simple words, it’s like having 3 separate networks in a single phone.

This could be the main reason for Huawei Mate Xs 2 to support the Beidou satellite communication feature.
