Last year, at the P40 series launch conference, Huawei also unveiled the AR Map powered by Cyberverse technology. This new app utilizes the power of Augmented Reality (AR) for a new kind of map navigation.
Furthermore, Huawei introduced the AR Map 2.0 version in February 2021 based on Huawei Hetu technology. This new edition brings improvements for positioning, speed, and AI recognition accuracy.
With these advancements, Huawei continues to expand the reach of AR MAP and Huawei AR Map is now available for download in the Apple App Store, which is a very big leap for this AR-based application.
However, currently, Huawei AR Map only supports iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 series but Huawei has confirmed that it will be available for more model Apple models in the future.

Huawei adds Chinese navigation feature to Petal Maps app
Huawei is initiating some new tick-tacks on its well-known digital map application. In the latest development, the company has started beta-testing of an advanced Chinese navigation feature for Huawei Petal Maps.
The Chinese tech maker continues to add new features to its app and services. Consequently, these additions improve the overall functioning of the application and offer a responsive and efficient experience to users.
To begin the new additions, the company has selected its map application this time. Accordingly, Huawei has started the beta testing of the Chinese navigation feature for Petal Maps with the 184.108.40.2060 (002) version.
Previously, it was reported that Petal Maps will bring new features with Mate 50 series. The feature list has also included the Chinese navigation and other details. Alternatively, it was rolling out with the 220.127.116.113 build.
However, due to some unknown bugs, the app was only able to showcase the regional data and didn’t respond to the navigation feature. On the other hand, a few users were not even able to get the appropriate region information.
Hence, with a restart, the company has triggered beta testing for the respective navigation feature. This indicates that soon users will have a more functional and suitable navigation method in their hands.
Huawei Petal Maps: Other Exceptional features
Apart from the Chinese navigation feature, Petal Maps consists of multiple beneficial tweaks. The application supports more than 160 regions across the globe and delivers a smooth and productive driving experience.
Besides, one can also find finer map positioning, map display, driving navigation, real-time road conditions, and more. And let’s not forget that the application is not limited only to your smartphone but also takes place in smart vehicles.
Speaking of the Chinese navigation feature, there are chances that this brilliant addition will count more new regions to the list. As a result, it would become much easier for users to travel to several locations with effective navigation.
Huawei Wallet now makes it possible to add digital RMB hard wallet
Huawei continues to bring new additions to its applications and services. Either, with new improvements or feature, the company make efforts to enhance the user experience in every manner. The latest example of this statement is the Huawei wallet which now adds support for the digital RMB hard wallet.
The information is making its way out from the Weibo channel of @pengpengjunjiao. As per his reports, Huawei Wallet now enables the support for a digital RMB hard wallet. Eventually, users can utilize their real cards through the Wallet app.
But before we jump to the question ‘How?’, let’s understand the concept of digital RMB.
What is Digital RMB?
Generally, Digital RMB is an application that defines the legal digital currency of China. It is an official service platform that deals with the opening and managing of digital RMB personal wallets, and digital RMB exchange and circulation facilities.
Besides, the authorities accomplish several kinds of transaction-related projects through this app. On the other hand, the app provides ‘sub-wallets’ to retailers and suppliers. Ultimately, users can carry out transactions to various sub-wallets using the digital RMB app.
Further, you can use it for various payment methods. It will be available on your device with the name ‘Wallet Express Pay’. However, one must note that this application is a pilot version (in testing). Thus, only users (pilot customers) can register for the digital RMB app.
How to access a digital RMB hard wallet?
As mentioned, the Digital RMB app provides sub-wallets. Consequently, users will require the RMB app to push the digital RMB hard wallet in the Huawei Wallet. Thereafter, Huawei Wallet will add the hard wallet as per its requirement.
Once added, the hard wallet will connect with your Huawei Wallet and will also support Huawei Pay to Pay. Also, with a double click on the power button, you can command the digital RMB wallet for payment activities. In terms of security, the wallet let the device verify the identity information before performing any payment action.
But remember, the whole process requires the Digital RMB App, which is running in the trial stage (Pilot version). So register yourself to get through a new experience of transaction.
