Huawei patents new 3D stereoscopic projection tech
Huawei has recently published a new patent for stereoscopic projection technology that could be cost-effective and it’s a good thing for both seller and the customer.
Information shared by the Chinese patent office, the latest Huawei patent has application number CN202211090428 and it was filed on July 27, 2022, while it was published on January 20, 2023. The patent categories show “Stereoscopic Projection System, Projection System, and Vehicle”.
Stereographic projection is a technique for displaying the angular properties of a plane-faced object on a single drawing or diagram. Directions, as well as planes, may be shown and any desired angle can be measured directly from the projection using a graphical technique.
In stereoscopic projection technology two images, seen from the perspective of the left and the right eye, are projected simultaneously. The frequency of projecting the images is 60 times per second for each eye and covered alternately by the shutter glasses.
According to the details, this Huawei projection technology consists of a backlight assembly, a spatial light modulator, and a diffuser screen. The backlight assembly is used to output two light beams to the spatial light modulator at different angles. The spatial light modulator is used to modulate two light beams according to different image information to obtain two paths of imaging light.
The spatial light modulator is used to output two paths of imaging light to the diffusion screen at different angles. The diffusion screen is used to diffuse the two paths of imaging light and output the diffused two paths of imaging light at different angles. In this application, by sharing The same spatial light modulator can reduce the cost of the stereoscopic projection system.
looking at the patent diagram, Huawei’s “projection” patent is mainly aimed at stereoscopic projection systems. if utilized, it could be used to watch 3D projection, allowing consumers to watch 3D movies at home.
Breaking: Huawei smartphone regains shipment growth
It’s good news, after a long time, Huawei has once again reclaimed growth in China’s smartphone market despite facing having no 5G in its new smartphones. According to the data compiled by Counterpoint research, Huawei has achieved 15% of year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2022 as compared to the same quarter in 2021.
The company had 7 percent of the overall smartphone market share in Q4 2021, which recorded 9.5% in Q4 2022. This is a major difference. We could assume that the latest progress is made with the release of the Huawei Mate 50 series in October. Thereafter, Huawei customers supported the sales volume to a new milestone.
“Huawei recovered from its low base in 2021, increasing by 15% YoY in Q4. However, the brand is still unable to ship 5G-enabled devices, which is a major concern for its sales outlook.” wrote Counterpoint.
This year, Huawei is planning to launch a number of new smartphones and it’ll return to the dual flagship unveiling tradition. This means we would see the P series and Mate series launching in a single year.
The launches could further help Huawei to increase its growth in share among Chinese consumers to rank better in Q2 2023 smartphone market results.
In Q4 2022, Apple gained captured 23.7% of the market, maintaining its leading position. But it registered a double-digit YoY decline like major Android OEMs.
All the major OEMs offered stronger promotions during the Singles’ Day online sales festival. They also used the sales promotion season to shed excess inventory. Smartphone sales surged MoM, but the rise didn’t sustain into December when COVID-19 started spreading fast.
Coming to overall sales, China’s smartphone sales declined 14% year over year in 2022, which is counted as the slowest smartphone growth in the last decade. It’s also the fifth year that China recorded continued to decline.
In Q4 2022, China’s smartphone market declined by 15%, and a similar result has been seen throughout the past three quarters.
iOS, Android, HarmonyOS: Huawei lists difference
According to the image shared by a Weibo tipster, Huawei has listed the key difference between HarmonyOS, iOS, and Android inside its experience store to spread awareness about its operating system and remove confusion.
Below you can check the difference between iOS, Android, and Hongmeng systems listed:
The iOS system is a closed-source system developed by Apple, which has relatively high security when downloading software, smooth operation, and simple and beautiful operation of the home screen and app ecosystem.
Disadvantages: The system settings cannot be changed according to the user, and the system compatibility is average.
Android is an operating system designed based on the Linux macro kernel. There are many devices equipped with Android and a wide range of choices. It has a rich ecosystem, high customization, and good compatibility.
Disadvantages: General security, and open source system brings disadvantages of uncontrollable software APP quality.
The HarmonyOS has modularized features, and the microkernel driver enables the system to be disassembled, which reduces the requirements for hardware specifications. Such low requirements allow it to be installed on small devices, such as earphones and smartwatches. HarmonyOS devices can also be connected to each other to achieve a seamless connection.
Disadvantages: The system has been put into use for a short time, and there are currently fewer software developers and system users.
The Chinese tech maker also has a line of tips that would help you to get the most out of software updates:
- Before upgrading the smartphone, it is recommended for you back up important data.
- During the upgrade procedure, make sure that the device has enough battery levels.
- Does the system need to be upgraded related to the current state of the phone.
- Frequent upgrades are not recommended for smartphones that have been used for a long time and feature low specifications.
