Huawei patents folding phone design

In today’s scenario, all the major smartphone makers are focusing on their foldable segment to equip them with the best hardware and software technology. In this line, Huawei patents a new folding phone design with a side-pulling screen in China.

On September 29, 2020, Huawei has applied for a patent “a folding side-pulling device and electronic device,” which is officially approved on April 12, 2022. However, the company has published this patent with announcement number CN114338860A.

According to the patent description, this patent design can extend the size of the screen after unfolding by side-pulling the screen. By exploring the patent design, it seems that the phone has a side-pull slider structure for smooth pulling of the screen.

Huawei HarmonyOS unlock feature

Huawei is again surfacing in the news headline. But this time, the matter isn’t revolving around the devices. The company has issued a new patent that reveals an advanced unlock feature for the Huawei HarmonyOS operating system.

According to the information, the newly released patent reads the title as electronic device unlocking method and related equipment. Eventually, we get the clue that Huawei is preparing a new unlock feature and could bring it to the HarmonyOS interface.

In recent times, there are several scenarios where the users demand such features that can interconnect the devices with each other. Besides, the usage of hardware mutual assistance and file sharing between devices are quite common nowadays.

However, while performing the multi-screen collaboration between two devices, the user has to pass through an unlocking stage. Currently, this unlock feature is quite ineffective and problematic for users to utilize.

Hence, with a mindset of a more accurate and efficient unlock feature for HarmonyOS, Huawei came up with this patent. Consequently, this application will enable the unlock operation of the first device on the second. Thus, it will ensure better safety and convenience.

How the new unlock feature will work?

Speaking of the patent application, the information shows a sequence of procedures that will execute this operation.

  • Receiving operation information sent by the second device
  • When determined that the first device needs to be unlocked, then the initial information is transmitted to the second device. Further, the second device uses this data to gather authentication info, required for unlocking the object.
  • Obtains authentication information from the second electronic device for user authentication.
  • When the user passes the authentication, the unlocking object of the first electronic device is unlocked.

Huawei has just made an idea for a responsive unlock feature. Yet, how much time the company will take to implement this feature in its self-developed system is still a question.

Huawei wireless charging equipment

Huawei and its innovations are famous in the world of technology. The company believes that new techs bring new benefits. And to continue this technical journey, Huawei has obtained a new patent for wireless charging equipment.

Huawei knows that electric vehicles are the new face of the automobile sector. However, often this high-tech automation fails in power efficiency. Hence, to provide a new boost to smart cars, Huawei is planning to introduce an evolved wireless charging equipment.

In the current scenarios, the electric vehicle charging mechanism comprises three operations: onboard charging (OBC), off-board charging, and wireless charging (WC). But this technique is quite low-integrated and often takes a huge amount to get equipped in the car system.

Consequently, the new patent has a unified solution to this matter. As per the info, the company will reveal an onboard charging gadget. This gadget will ultimately showcase high power at a noteworthy low cost.

How the device will furnish high power?

Firstly, the company will impose the below-mentioned components on the charging technology so that it could work appropriately.

  • Mains input, including power factor correction (PFC) converter
  • Mains side DC/AC converter
  • Transformer with mains side coil and battery side coil
  • Battery side AC/DC converter
  • Battery connector
  • One or more bypass switches for electrically connecting the mains side converter to the battery side converter when closed

In these elements, the transformer will work on magnetic coupling with the external wireless power transmitter (WPT) and its TX pad. As a result, the mains side coil and the battery side coil will receive power.

Thereafter, when the bypass switch will remain closed and the transformer will associate with the WPT magnetically, the power will begin to deliver to the battery connector via the battery side converter and the utility side converter.

In this manner, the new wireless charging equipment will constantly deliver energy to the electric vehicle, making it more efficient.

Huawei could bring new satellite communication with enhanced security

Published

on

Huawei patent satellite communication

Huawei Mate 50 series is the first-ever smartphone in the enterprise that appears with satellite communication support. And the Chinese tech maker is not going to stop here. The new information suggests that Huawei obtains one more patent for satellite communication functions.

The latest reports arrive from the Tianyancha application and read the title of the patent as communication method and device. Ultimately, this gives a sign that once again Huawei has indulged itself in the pathways of satellite communication via patent.

Before we move on to the details that the fresh patent provides, let’s have a flashback of some specific points regarding the respective technology. Generally, satellite communication is a reflective function that allows you to deal with emergencies.

The specific feature on your device enables you to conduct calls and other communication services. Further, it supports multiple locations, showcases maps, and scans the codes up to 8-10 times without causing any harm to the battery life. On the flip side, it also permits the utilization of satellite message functions.

New Patent – New Information

Although, as per the new patent, the upcoming satellite communication functions of Huawei would be more enhanced and secure. The details read that the current perception revolves around the technical field of wireless communication.

As a result, the communication device may support random access with satellite with respect to the acquired first position. Besides, it will hold uplink communication actions with the satellite as per the second position information.

These positions play a vital role to establish the functionalities of satellite communication. Consequently, the accuracy rate of the second position information is higher than that of the first position. Thus, the position information of the satellites divides into various accuracies.

Eventually, this will help the communication device to attain the position information and motion information of the satellites with different communication processes. As a result, the device will receive a better transmission quality. Moreover, the security of the high accuracy position will also get improvements.
