On July 15, Huawei launched HMS Core 6.0 on the official website of Huawei Developers Alliance. As promised, Huawei added a number of new open capabilities to application developers and upgrading existing features and services.
HMS Core 6.0 also opens a number of services including membership, video clips, audio clips, etc. At present, the HMS Core 6.0 APK built into the user’s device has been fully upgraded. Developers can log in to the official website of the Huawei Developer Alliance to download and use various services.
Huawei Mobile Service is a set of Huawei’s software, hardware, and cloud open capabilities for Huawei’s partners and app developers to create unique. It aims to deliver the alternatives of GMS and libraries for HMS developers.
It has always been developer-centric, and constantly opens up Huawei’s core technologies and capabilities to more developers, providing consistent high-quality applications for cross-platform and cross-device applications experience.
HMS Core supports the development of applications and services including web applications, fast applications, Android, HarmonyOS, etc. Also, it supports calls on devices such as tablets, smart screens, smartwatches, and car machines. In addition, HMS Core provides a wealth of third-party development frameworks, such as React Native, Cordova, etc.
HMS Core 6.0:
HMS Core 6.0 further opens up Huawei’s advanced technologies in media applications, graphics rendering, and network acceleration.
In the media field, a new multimedia pipeline service (AV Pipeline Kit) has been added to help developers solve the pain points of difficult audio and video application development as well as high power consumption through audio and video development frameworks, video over-dividing, and sound event detection plug-ins.
The 3D modeling capability (3D Modeling Kit) is opened in the graphics field, which provides developers with AI-based object modeling and material production capabilities. Users only need ordinary RGB cameras, and 3D models can be efficiently generated through mobile phones.
Commercial and animation production apps instantly get interesting interactions. Currently, this capability supports the entire Android platform.
In addition, among the existing graphics computing services (CG Kit), the industry has realized the dynamic light and shadow fog effect “volume fog” based on volume rendering technology for the first time on the mobile device and helping mobile games improve the realism and expressiveness of indoor scenes. This feature has also been opened to all Android devices that support Vulkan.
In the field of communications where Huawei has an advantage, Network Kit has upgraded the AI network environment prediction, which can optimize network parameters based on business network access rules and differentiated network requirements, reducing the network latency of applications by more than 20%.
Huawei to bring new VR head mounted technology: Patent
Huawei is working on new a new VR technology, it’ll add more advanced devices to the company’s collection. In this line, the company has released a new patent, which recently gets the approval of the Chinese Intellectual Property Database. It’ll be a lightweight VR head unit and will release the pressure while wearing the device.
As per the information, Huawei applied for a patent entitled “a head-mounted display and virtual reality system” back in March 2019. Now, it has passed the examination phase and the company has published it with the publication number CN111694152B in China on 14 September 2021.
The patent abstract shows, the described head-mounted display will make the users interact with virtual reality. Furthermore, during the time wearing the head unit users won’t feel much pressure and can enjoy the work with more comfort.
Huawei VR Technology Patent Description:
The application describes that the device will have a main head unit module, two magnetic arrangements, and integrated technologies. Furthermore, the first magnet won’t be dependent on the head unit body. Meanwhile, the second magnet structure will be used for opposite forces.
Thus, this magnetic arrangement will provide the head modules a skyward magnetic force. The technology will be in the virtual reality applications that will provide less pressure.
In June 2021 Huawei Headheld and HeadPositioner (VR) have passed Bluetooth SIG certification with model numbers Par-CG013 and Par-CG012 respectively. Both models will work on Bluetooth 5.0. However, the company hasn’t revealed any further information yet.
Huawei Rollable phone meets Gestures navigation, Nice
In the past, we’ve seen a number of new Huawei patents and designs about rollable phones. Compared to the foldable design, the rollable phone extends outwards from within a regular phone size.
However, new patents continue to appear. In the latest edition, LetsGoDigital has found a new rollable phone design that was filed in February 2020 at World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The patent is titled ‘An apparatus and a method for a controllable foldable display with haptic and sound effect’. The 38-page documentation was approved and released on September 2, 2021.
Huawei Rollable Phone with Gestures:
Aside from its design, the new patent has new hand gestures called Freehand Gesture Control. To conduct such controls, a virtual slider is shown on the screen.
The extended display will be accompanied by haptic feedback (screen vibration) and a sound effect. The advantage of this display extension sound compensates for the noise generated during the rolling process.
Not only that, there are plenty of hand movements that users can make to enjoy a seamless gestures movement across this futuristic device. These includes:
- Swipe above to roll in or out
- A movement to the right to unroll or left to retract

Manage Roll Speed:
The gestures are so advanced, they could even allow users to manage the speed of the rollout and roll back-in process detected by the use of the finger count and is detected by a motion sensor or a camera module. This is quite interesting and is surely futuristic to see that happen.
Realistic Concept Video:
Huawei Mate Rollable appears to be a normal smartphone at first sight. But it has the ability to expand into tablet-like big screen size. Unlike the foldable, the rollable smartphone can increase or decrease the area of its display by rolling in and out.
The phone’s front design looks identical to any regular smartphone, yet it can expand to a large tablet at an instance. Unlike a foldable device, the Rollable phone can expand outwards by taking a limited space. Through this mechanism, a 6.5-inch panel can expand to an 11-inch screen.

Huawei publishes multi-screen interactive patent for smart cars
Huawei has shared a new patent multi-screen interactive technology for smart cars. It was applied back on the 26th of April this year and has published with the publication number CN113330395A in China.
The patent entitled “a method, device, terminal equipment, and vehicle for multi-screen interaction” revolves around smart car technology. The method described in the patent uses a high-definition camera and specific gestures to derive multi-screen interaction.
As per the described approach, at first, the camera analyses a pre-defined specific gesture and captures the command. Afterward, the carried content represents on the first display screen in sub-images alongside other sub-images on the screen.
With this projection on the first screen and derived information, the users can easily presume the movement direction of subsequent gestures. After that, the same procedure is followed for the second screen and controls the sub-images presenting on the first display screen.
Thus, the display screen moves according to the gestures. But when the distance between the gestures and system reaches out of range, the sub-images shift on the second display screen and carries out the multi-screen interactive function.
Last week, Huawei published a vehicle braking patent that contains a power recovery control method according to the state of charge of the battery. It’ll help in taking a more precise decision regarding turning on/off the battery recovery so the users won’t have to face a sudden battery back out.
