Samsung failed in satellite communication but Huawei and Apple won
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.
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.
Huawei P60 Pro test device appears in pure white color
Huawei P60 series is preparing to unveil and a tipster has now released a live image of the P60 Pro test device, which has identical statics to the past flagship.
According to the image shared by a Weibo tipster, the Huawei P60 Pro test device contains a large rectangular camera bump with dual ring cameras. The camera bump and the rear panel have pure white colors.
However, there are no other details visible at the moment. But the rear design looks different from the past leaks and rumors. It’s the fact that this is a testing model and covers up design aesthetics, so don’t reveal it ahead of the official launch.
The tipster reveals that the lens has quite a different arrangement than the previous flagship devices.
To bring new enthusiasm to the smartphone world, the Huawei P60 series will bring a powerful camera system. It includes a large main camera sensor to provide you bright, high-quality, and night photography user experience.
The Pro version also has better ultra-wide angle and periscope zoom cameras. These will be 50MP and 64Mp cameras respectively. A cover leak revealed that Huawei P60 Pro will get you a new camera design that consists of a large camera in the middle. In terms of software, it will use HarmonyOS 3.1.
Furthermore, it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which may not be an issue in terms of inventory for this smartphone. Furthermore, the Huawei P60 series will be the first Huawei flagship to debut 88W super fast charger, if it’s not included in the Mate X3 first.
Huawei P60 lineup is expected to launch in March this year but an official timeline is yet to arrive.
