In this era, every smartphone users want a large screen display but they are not convenient to carry. As a solution, the top smartphone manufacturers introduced the concept of foldable phones.

Like other brands, Huawei has also a folding phone series that consisted of Mate X, Mate Xs, and recently launched Mate X2. For information, the Mate X2 comes with a new-inward folding design, two display systems, a powerful Kirin 9000 processor, and amazing features.

Apart from this, the existing foldable smartphones still have many problems as compared to non-folding phones, which are needed to be solved.

Regarding this, on October 22, 2019, Huawei filed a new patent for a hinge assembly similar to the Microsoft Surface Book for folding phones, which was passed on April 29 in China.

This patent proposed a solution of folding smartphones that cannot be flat on the table or surface due to the volume of the hinge. The solution is to superimpose the blade in the hinge assembly that is similar to the Surface Book design.

According to the patent document, the hinge assembly includes a row of interconnected and adjacent hinge blades and at least one linear actuator. When the hinge assembly is in the unfolded position, the hinge blades are aligned in a common plane.

When the hinge assembly moves to the folded position each hinge blade rotates around the hinge assembly rotation axis relative to the adjacent hinge blade. The linear actuator includes a rotation shaft and a linear drive device. The first end of the linear drive device is connected to the rotation shaft and linearly driven. The second and opposite ends of the device are connected to at least one hinge blade.

The thruster axis extends between the first and second ends and is perpendicular to the rotation axis of the hinge assembly, wherein the linear thruster is activated along the thruster axis such that each of the two hinge blades rotates relative to the adjacent hinge blades around the rotation axis of the hinge assembly.

The linear propeller further includes a locking device for locking the hinge assembly in at least one of the unfolded positions and the folded end position. The locking device includes a cam element, interlocked with the cam part located on the rotating shaft.

 

On the other hand, Huawei mentioned the advantages of this component is that the hinge can be easily turned without any effort, while still being able to safely lock in one of the required positions, namely the unfolded position or the folded end position.

Additionally, since there is only one locking arrangement, there is no accumulation of individual manufacturing tolerances, providing better flatness in the deployed position, while avoiding the need to synchronize movement between several pivot points in order to provide sufficient locking force.

Huawei Mate 50 camera aperture

Last year, the WIPO has approved a Huawei Patent, entities ‘Aperture camera module, and an electronic device describing a six-blade camera aperture technology. And it is recently reported that the Huawei Mate 50 series to equip with this six-blade aperture camera technology.

According to a well-known Weibo tipster, the Huawei Mate 50 series will become the first Huawei phone to equip the six-blade camera aperture module, with the expected current aperture range of engineering matching F1.4-F4.

Camera aperture diaphragm:

The best example to describe the aperture camera is the Samsung Galaxy S9, the smartphone equipped the 8-blade aperture technology. While the Huawei Mate 50 is expected to bear only six-blade technology.

Similar to a shutter, a camera diaphragm controls the quantity of light that reaches the sensor while also shielding the lens from damage. As a result, it indirectly affects the camera’s depth of field and aperture.

On the other hand, an image with a more blurred background can be captured using a wider aperture. Even in low light, we’ll still have crisper photographs. The depth of field and exposure, however, is constrained because smartphones have fixed aperture lenses.

The tipster further stated that Huawei Mate 50 Pro houses a 15x telephoto macro with longer bangs, and the Mate 50 RS will support a 35x telephoto macro lens camera.

Huawei Mate 50 series launch:

There were so many leaks and rumors appear related to the launch of the Huawei Mate 50 series. And going with the latest info, the Huawei Mate 50 series is to launch on September 7. Still, the date is not confirmed by the company let’s see, when Huawei will give its official launch date of the next upcoming flagship lineup.

Huawei optical hybrid cable

Huawei is constantly introducing some or other technology-based solutions that can serve various benefits to the users. Today, the company has introduced some key factors of Huawei optical hybrid cable and described how useful it could be for network and transmission purposes.

The Chinese manufacturer has officially posted a video on its Weibo channel, this morning. On exploring the post we found, how the optical hybrid cable of Huawei plays a crucial role in the technology sector. So let’s learn about this unique cable bit by bit.

An optical Hybrid Cable, also known as the optoelectronic cable is a package of cables that binds the original two wires of the cable into one wire. Ultimately, this mechanism will help in obtaining secure software and hardware coordination.

Besides, it will negotiate data packets that the operators transmit through optical fibers, and will carry the power supply through twisted pair of cables. Another benefit of the optical hybrid cable is, unlike other network cables, this technology is quite affordable.

A huge aid for traditional problems:

So far, the office building generally consists of long distances as well as several clients connected to one server. As a result, it becomes difficult for the core computer room to even transmit 100 meters of the network in the area. Aside, this problem was not a matter of a simple optical mechanism that can easily resolve the situation.

However, the combination of optical hybrid cable as well as Wi-Fi 6 can mark an end to the above-mentioned issues. Fortunately, the respective technology provides 10Gbps ultra-wide access and 300-meter ultra-long distance PoE (Power over Ethernet) power supply.

Furthermore, after the remote module gets a sufficient power supply, it can support 4 Wi-Fi 6 networks without requiring local power extraction. Its capability is so flexible that operators can easily relieve for 10-15 years after applying this technology.
