With the launch of the Mate 50 series, Huawei introduced the world’s first smartphone with satellite communication features. The feature is a whole new technology, which is followed by Apple in iPhone 14 series.
In simple terms, Huawei satellite communication allows you to send emergency SMS to a receiver with a satellite orbiting Earth. However, this technology doesn’t require a mobile network and helps you to communicate as an SOS via Satellite. For your information, Huawei Mate 50 series uses China’s Beidou satellite to pass messages to the receiver.
According to the information, the current generation of Huawei satellite communication only supports one-way messages. It means a user can only send messages and won’t receive them. This is good as an initial approach but there are some improvements being made for the next generation.
Past inputs reveal that Huawei is working on two-way communication, which will allow you to send and receive messages. We are also expecting Huawei to improve the latency of the smartphone’s connection for fast messaging.
On the other hand, the second feature may enable sending a short voice message from one person to another. Initially, short voice messages could adapt to one-way protocol but we require more information.
For now, Huawei has not made any official announcement on this new feature but there’s a lot to know. But Huawei’s new foldable phone, Mate X3 could be the one to bring two-way communication. Then it’ll be followed into the P60 series. Later on, Huawei could add an additional functionality to the Mate 60 series.
