Recently, videos and posts about Huawei Mate 60 Pro users demonstrating satellite calling in flight appeared, and Huawei Smart Devices CTO, Bruce Lee urged consumers to refrain from violating aviation rules.
Bruce Lee wrote on Weibo that recently some users have used the satellite calling feature of Huawei Mate 60 Pro and also recorded videos inside the flight, which violates the relevant flight safety and aviation rules. He requested all of the users to abide by the safety regulations and enable flight mode while traveling in an airplane.
Why passengers can’t use phones on a flight?
Mobile signals can interfere with aircraft navigational and landing guidance systems. The relationship between phone signals and navigational systems is not an exact science, which is why everyone we spoke to was careful in their language.
Satellite calling is one of the key highlights of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro devices. With this capability, a user can dial a number without worrying about native network coverage.
