Alongside Huawei, Honor is working to launch two foldable phones before Spring Festival. It clearly means that these folding phones will arrive in early next year or maybe soon. On this matter, a Weibo tipster – Changan Digital King discloses that among two Honor foldable phones, one folds from up to down. While the other one folds left to right.
Earlier, Honor applied for two trademarks with names “Magic Fold” and “Magic Wing” in Europe. So, it is speculated that these forthcoming Honor foldable phones may arrive with these names or could be global models. In addition to this, the company’s first folding phone will use a screen provided by BOE and Visionox.
Besides this, a report also hints that the Honor phone with a left-to-right fold has the code name “Magic X” and looks very identical to Huawei Mate X2 next-generation foldable smartphone.
On the other hand, the smartphone with the code name “Magic V” and up to down folding scheme will likely arrive with a similar appearance as of Huawei Mate V. However, it is not confirmed at the moment.
Honor will soon confirm the launch of these upcoming foldable phones and more information related to their specification and official launch date.
Huawei Mate V:
Huawei Mate V has a flip-style foldable design clamshell phone that comes with a full view display that folds inward and features a notch on the head. There are function keys on the left and the right side consist volume and power buttons. Meanwhile, the bottom side features ports and speaker grills for the input.
On the rear side, it has a camera bump that is large and placed vertical camera system featuring different lense. The right side of the lens shows sensors for different aspects of photography.
Huawei Mate X2:
Huawei Mate X2 comes with an 8-inch foldable display with 2480 x 2200p resolution and a 6.45-inch cover OLED display full HD+ (2700 x 1160 pixels) resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, 120Hz touch sampling rate (Main display), and 240Hz on the cover display.
This phone is powered by 5nm Kirin 9000 processor with 5G connectivity, EMUI 11 operating system, 4500mAh battery, and more.
It took 4 years to develop Huawei Kunlun glass
Huawei Mate 50 series is the first flagship to pack with Kunlun Glass, a new type of protected display that brings powerful durability and Huawei revealed that it took 4 years of research and development to make this come true.
China’s CCTV broadcasting has published a new documentary on Huawei, which reveals how Huawei forge Kunlun glass along with insights from Huawei Smartphone product Line vice president – Bruce Lee.
Huawei Mate 50 series with Kunlun Glass is unbreakable and Bruce Lee said that Kunlun Glass has been developed for 4 years. At this time, the company has gone through various challenges and made its way through them.
According to Lee, Kunlun Glass found inspiration from the hard and durable reinforced concrete structure. After 24 hours of crystal growth, 108 processes, and a 1600-degree melting process, a piece of mobile phone panel glass contains hundreds of billions of high-strength nanocrystals, which are impact-resistant.
The process also prevents cracking, so that the crash resistance of the whole machine equipped with Kunlun glass is increased by 10 times.
After the release of the Huawei Mate 50 series, Huawei also opened an upgrade service for old Huawei smartphones. These eligible devices could upgrade with Kunlun display including the P50 series and P40 series.
The forefront of such technology has allowed Huawei to provide something that’s not even available on other smartphones. In Huawei’s lab test, it is found that the glass has been dropped on the floor flat on display but it has remained without any damage.
Although, you may not drop the phone on a daily basis but Huawei has made it more secure if you drop it accidentally.
Huawei will bring a surprise chipset this year: Tipster
2023 brought in new opportunities for Huawei and the tech make is preparing to bring in a surprise in the chipset category, suggesting a well-known Huawei tipster, which seems really exciting.
Classmateguan said that Huawei will work hard to forge ahead in 2023 and the company will craft technologies to resolve issues. However, the company could also bring some small surprises in the chipset, which remains confidential from Huawei.
The tipster hints that the surprise could drop in the second half of this year and it is likely to be a good sign for the Chinese semiconductor industry. To be mentioned, there’s no specific signal about Kirin or HiSilicon. But we can expect a large number of votes going in favor of Huawei SoC.
Chipset Manufacturing Equipment Ban:
According to a Bloomberg report, the U.S. has secured a deal with Netherlands and Japan to tighten access of chipset manufacturing technologies for China. This new move is designed to limit China’s ability to come up with a breakthrough in chip production technology.
Amid this situation, firms such as Huawei are an example of U.S. chip control restrictions and the extent that the U.S. has gone to control Chinese tech makers’ progress in the global telecom market.
Since 2019, the U.S. is continuously imposing restrictions on Huawei. Thereafter, Huawei lost access to Google Mobile Services (GMS) and the ability to print new Kirin chips via Taiwan’s TSMC.
The result of these actions caused a major drop in Huawei smartphone sales and the firm had to announce the ending of Kirin. Thus relying on Qualcomm is the sole option for the company and since 2021, Huawei is using Snapdragon semiconductors for all of its new devices.
It’s good to see what continues to rumble into the world of Huawei and we are eager to know what kind of chipset surprise the company has prepared for us.
