Huawei has been developing Application Processors (AP) for a long time to use in its different devices and it’s expected that the company will ramp up consumptions of their own APs rather than decrease shipments from third-party solutions.
The Chinese tech giant is taking these measures to grow and realign its in-house chip production and to take its supply chains away from third-party processor solutions, says research firm IHS.
According to the data compiled by IHS, Huawei’s smartphone chipset – Kirin is used in 74.6% of the smartphones shipped in the third quarter of 2019 compared to 68.7% in 2018.
“Previously, Huawei used its Kirin chips mainly in flagship devices. However, the company now is expanding the reach of its in-house solution to more price ranges, including the Nova and Y-series mid-range phones” says IHS.
In May last year, the US government placed Huawei in the Entity-List and prohibited its business with American firms including the purchase of different semiconductor products.
“As a result, Huawei is working on removing US-based components from its supply chain by finding suppliers from different regions or by providing its own solutions,” said Anna Ahrens, senior analyst of smartphone and mobile at IHS.
The data also shows Huawei has decreased its shipment from Qualcomm to 8.6% in the Q3 2019 down from 24% in the same quarter in 2018. Meanwhile, MediaTek’s presence in Huawei phones increased to 16.7% in Q3 from 7.3% a year earlier.
IHS also revealed that Qualcomm still retains the highest share in the global mobile processor market in the third quarter of 2019 with a 31% share, followed by MediaTek at 21%. Samsung’s Exynos and Huawei’s Kirin recorded 16% and 14%, respectively.
Samsung’s battery is fragile and blowing: BE AWARE!
Samsung has been quite messing when it comes to battery management for smartphones and it’s blowing. The Galaxy Note 7 was a good example that has made headlines around the world. However, a recent revelation from a tech YouTuber has revealed that the battery issue is still there. Hell yeah! My Huawei phone is working marvelously when it comes to battery, Cheers for Huawei.
As shown by Mrwhoistheboss, he found that several of his phones including the Samsung Galaxy S10 has faced the severe battery-blowing issue. According to the YouTuber, the device has been used several times post-release for tech comparison purposes and left out on a shelf with his other smartphone collection.
Noticeably, only Samsung phones blowing up their batteries, iPhones and even Chiense companies don’t have a nick. To be mentioned, he said to keep all of the devices in the same arrangement and organized accordingly.
Once shared on Twitter, Samsung responded to the YouTuber and requested to collect the battery-defected device and after a follow-up conversation, the device has been collected. However, the YouTuber didn’t get any further remarks on what Samsung is doing with that device that has been gathered.
You see, Mrwhostheboss is not the only one who finds out about this issue, MKBHD in the video also mentioned that such an issue has been noted in a few of the Samsung phones on his shelf as well.
Furthermore, a number of users and tech YouTubers confirms that this issue is also noticed on other smartphone brands.
Yet, the majority of them criticized Samsung for the vastness of this battery blow-up incident.
That’s not it, the tech YouTuber suspected that there should be an inspection of new foldable devices, and Guess What? Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 had the same battery blow-up issue as its rear case popped up from the swollen battery.
Currently, Samsung has not come up with an official statement on this matter but this is a severe issue and there a lot, it means a lot of people using Samsung phones. However, we do need to find out, whether it’s happened to only those devices that are being stored and not used for a long time.
Still, it’s a sarcastic way to imagine as other brands such as Huawei remain good even without long hiatus from use.
Here’s what experts say about a swollen smartphone battery.
“A swolen lithum-ion battery may catch fire or explode. Proceed with Extreme aution and at your own risk when removing a swallen battery from an electric device.”
If you face such as an issue with your phone with either Samsung or any other brand, we are aware, as it could be very dangerous. We recommend you to not use the device or take it to customer care.
Huawei sponsored European Innovation Day 2022 for advanced digitalization and more
Today, Huawei continues its sponsorship for the European Innovation Day 2022 too in Budapest Hungary. The event’s objectives are to show how innovative technology may be increasingly digitalized, migrate to green energy, preserve biodiversity, and cultivate talent with its partners.
The event’s slogan is “Innovate for Diverse Europe. Here in the event, Huawei demonstrated its 5G demo truck, with a variety of 5G use cases for various industrial applications, including logistics, ports, and mining.
However, the Minister of foreign affairs said that Hungary has prevailed in the struggle for big-ticket investments by Huawei and R&D center in Budapest. Meanwhile, this strategic partnership, which was established ten years ago, has substantially benefited both sides, and the Hungarian government is prepared to continue this partnership with Huawei
Jeff Wang, President of the Public Affairs and Communications Department at Huawei, stated that:
At Huawei, we believe that we can lead innovation for the future through continuous investment in research and development. While the process of innovation is full of uncertainty, as our path to the future, one thing is certain: innovation will be crucial to realize our sustainable future. We look forward to working with our partners to create a smarter, greener and sustainable Europe.”
Huawei European Innovation Day 2022:
Both the Partner are worked over the following below-mentioned topics to grow up with more advanced and digitalized technology:
- Green Energy Transition: The Partners has collaborated on a white paper for the future of the Hungarian power sector with a shared vision for the green energy economy.
- 5G Enables Innovation for a Smart Europe: In Europe, a lot of cutting-edge 5G-powered solutions come from Huawei, attempting to solve an issue that has effects on the social, environmental, and economic front.
- Talent Development and Biodiversity Conservation: Huawei and Hungary signed a collaboration to promote ICT education seeds for the future Scholarship program. In the past two years, the seeds for the future Scholarship have given a total of 5 million euros to nearly 1,000 students from 12 different countries in Europe.
Huawei and Zain KSA deploy third-gen 5G RAN MetaAAU product
Today, Huawei and Zain KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) jointly deployed the third-generation 5G RAN MetaAAU product. Eventually, this build-up will help the operators in the region to expand the 5G coverage on a large scale.
Speaking of the Zain KSA, it is high-end cooperation of Saudi Arabia. It is working on a 5G customer base to become a one-stop digital partner and business technology provider in the country. However, such huge projects often require strong support.
Hence, Zain KSA associated with Huawei for deploying the 5G RAN MetaAAU carrier in the area. Ultimately, this will provide more capacity to 5G users in terms of cloud computing, IoT, AI, and machine learning solutions.
Alongside, MetaAAU integration will enable a wide range of services after extending coverage and will dynamically increase the network speed. Zain KSA enormously believes that the new upgrade in the form of a 5G RAN carrier will serve world-class 5G experiences.
Moreover, this will help in fulfilling the future goals of transforming the Kingdom into a digital economy hub. Along with enhanced and improved consumer experiences, it will also prove a boon in the e-commerce and business sectors.
Huawei 5G RAN MetaAAU
Solely talking about the MetaAAU, it’s the latest and one of the most advanced products of the Huawei RAN (Radio Access Network) product series. It delivers the best performance with the lowest power consumption by applying several innovative algorithms.
The President of Huawei 5G Product Line, Ritchie Peng expresses how MetaAAU will be a boon for Zain KSA in the following words:
“Huawei has made deep efforts in Massive MIMO technology. MetaAAU is our third-generation Massive MIMO product and a major product in Huawei’s third-generation 5G RAN series. Its extremely large antenna array technology makes it possible to use higher frequency bands. As well as the higher bandwidth to serve the mobile industry in the future. We will continue to provide innovative solutions to help Zain KSA to build the leading performance network and provide a better user experience to end users.”
