Huawei IFA 2018 conference date and time leaked, Kirin 980 in the showcase and Mate 20 later

Published

Every year Huawei holds two flagship series conferences, that cover first half with ‘P-series’ and second half with ‘Mate-series’. The company has already brought us P20 and P20 Pro in Paris, so the upcoming second half is ready to cover Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.

Ahead of its IFA conference, an image has unofficially appeared on the internet, that reveals Huawei will hold a new product launch conference at IFA 2018 in Berlin, Germany on August 31, at 2 PM Central Daylight Time.

 

There’s a huge possibility that this poster could be a false count ahead of the official event because Huawei has not announced any news on this image.

It was previously rumored that the new Kirin 980 processor and the annual Mate 20 flagship will be released in a schedule similar to last year as one after another, let’s explore further on the expected launch dates of both products.



First off Kirin 980 SoC Is confirmed to launch in the IFA 2018 conference. After the launch event of Huawei Nova 3 earlier this month, a Huawei official has announced that the development of the Kirin 980 chip is about to reach its ending and the launch conference will be held during the IFA in September.

According to the recent exposure, Kirin 980 uses TSMC’s 7nm process and integrates the second generation of Cambrian NPU. The CPU and GPU cores are further upgraded (currently expected the latest ARM core is Cortex-A76 and Mali-G76), but it is unlikely to adopt self-developed GPU because of the production date. Considering that the Kirin 970 used the A73 core in the CPU part last year, the CPU aspect of the Kirin 980 expected to be more adequate this year.



Moving on to Huawei Mate 20 flagship, the chances of Mate 20 series to appear at IFA conference are quite not possible. After all, the Huawei Mate series is not a kind of flagship that participates in IFA, instead, the company chooses to hold its own conference in Munich. Considering this year’s pace, the company could introduce Kirin 980 first and then Mate 20 series in later month similar to last year which will be equipped with Kirin 980, GPU Turbo Technology and better camera setup.

Let’s have a talk about Huawei’s subsidiary ‘Honor’, a launch poster that has appeared online shows Honor is also planning to launch a new product in Europe set to unveil on August 30. This device could be Honor’s last month installment Honor Play a Gaming phone geared with heavy specs.



Recently a launch poster was also revealed by Amazon India website which shows the launch date of Honor Play in India on August 6. Way ahead of the above-mentioned date but it contains something similar to the promo poster that nearly confirms device’s identity. Honor’s next Note series flagship ‘Note 10’ will be launched on July 31 in China which could also take part at the event in Europe.



Most of Deng Li's smartphones are from the Huawei ecosystem and his first Huawei phone was Ascend Mate 2 (4G). As a tech enthusiast, he keeps exploring new technologies and inspects them closely. Apart from the technology world, he takes care of his garden.

Samsung failed satellite communication Huawei

On February 1, Samsung launched its latest flagship, Galaxy S23. Still, it doesn’t bring a trendy and futuristic feature called satellite communication AKA SOS satellite emergency message, on this front, Samsung failed, while it’s a win for Huawei and Apple.

Before we pick a shovel and dig deep into this matter, let’s take a brief look at satellite communication. The feature let you send a text message (one way) to a receiver via satellite. The feature could be used in an emergency when the mobile network is not available at all. However, its availability is limited.

Now back to TM Roh, yep, Samsung’s President and Head of Mobile Experience Business said that the company remains limited because it needs to be matured.

While speaking to CNET, Roh said “When there is the right timing, infrastructure, and the technology [is] ready, then of course for Samsung Galaxy, for our mobile division, we would also actively consider adopting this feature as well,”

He mentioned that satellite communication is one to make the phone better but Samsung is making its own efforts to improve the user experience such as better 5G connectivity.

“I do not believe that is the end-all or be-all of the solutions to ensure peace of mind among users,” he said.

Failed:

There was a time when Samsung used to rush on the lane to win the race for new features. However, this time, even Apple won over the South Korean company to install satellite communication in iPhone 14 series.

We may agree that the technological innovation level of satellite communication is at the initial stage but Samsung’s top brass saying that “it’s not yet ready”, kind of sounds like a “failure”.

Huawei Mate 50 Pro:

Samsung failed but Huawei continues to innovate technologies such as satellite communication even with grave difficulties originated by the U.S. sanctions. In the face of challenges, Huawei is bringing new features that make a true difference among smartphone consumers.

Moving from the first initial version, Huawei has already planned to install a new satellite communication with the new Mate X3 foldable phone or P60 series. Read more about that in the article below.
