Huawei and well-known Chinese chip manufacturers successfully completed the R17 RedCap key technology 5G field test in Huairou, Beijing. This Huawei RedCap field test uses 5G commercial base stations and RedCap chips, achieving 142Mbps peak downlink and 35Mbps peak uplink, which is close to the theoretical peak.
As a lightweight 5G technology, RedCap achieves the best balance between performance and cost and fills the gap between the three major application scenarios of 5G eMBB, URLLC, and mMTC.
Huawei said It will become the best technology for carrying medium and high-speed IoT in the future. Since its inception, RedCap has attracted the attention of many industry partners.
All parties in the industry have successively carried out 5G RedCap technical capability verification and explored 5G RedCap application scenarios based on the verification results.
Power terminals, security cameras, industrial sensors, and Internet of Vehicles services are expected to become the first batch of 5G RedCap commercial applications, starting a new 5G RedCap’s billion IoT.
The latest field test is based on the 3.5GHz spectrum, following the specification requirements of the “5G Enhanced Technology R&D Test NR RedCap Key Technical Requirements” compiled by the IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group, and verified the access and basic work of the RedCap UE.
The single-user peak rate, multi-point access and throughput rate, user plane delay, mobility management, and other test content. The test results fully comply with the 3GPP standard protocol process, and the performance is optimal on the basis of meeting the expected indicators, laying the foundation for accelerating the commercial maturity of 5G RedCap.
Huawei announced that it will actively promote the relevant standard work of RedCap in R18. At the same time, under the guidance of the IMT-2020 (5G) promotion group, it will continue to explore the application scenarios of RedCap and accelerate the large-scale deployment of RedCap networks.
Huawei is preparing a brand new smartwatch lineup
As of the first month of 2023, Huawei has a variety of smartwatches that are already launched among consumers but it seems like there’s one new unique smartwatch lineup that could soon make its debut.
According to the inputs, Huawei has listed a mysterious new smartwatch lineup on the Huawei Health app with model – AOD-H1. First, we thought of being the upcoming Huawei Watch GT 4 or Watch 4 Series but there’s no confirmation found on the Huawei Health app.
Then a founding revealed that it may not be one of those, instead, Huawei could plan a whole new smartwatch lineup with brand new features.
B19 is the consistent code name of all Huawei smartwatches, for example:
- SGA-B19 for BUDS
- AND-B19 for Cyber
- MIL-B19 for GT 3
- RUN-B19 for GT Runner
And this doesn’t include the mainstream lineup.
Huawei’s former subsidiary Honor has always used B39 and B19 Example: MUS-B19 corresponds to GS3, and HBE-B39 corresponds to MagicWatch.
So, AOD-H1 could be an Always on Display (AOD) dedicated smartwatch lineup? Probably, as the industry already has such smart wearables that support this display-oriented technology. However, there’s some room for high battery life and new display tech that could drive consumers’ attention, such as high resolution.
Or it could be a high-end outdoor smartwatch ready for a certain type of user. On the flip side, it may be a new smart band. Yes, possibly but not certain.

Over the past year, Huawei has done a lot of experiments in the world of smartwatches such as Watch GT Cyber, which brings detachable dial functionality. The Huawei Watch Buds lets you store two wireless earbuds inside the watch face and you can flip it open just like an earbuds case to house those earphones.
Watch GT Runner is a prime example of fulfilling a specific type of consumer filled with lots of tracking exercises.
For now, there’s no official announcement available about the AOD-H1 but we’ll keep you posted.
