Huawei today announced the Huawei Sound X, the all-new Huawei-Devialet joint wireless speaker that will revolutionize high-end acoustic technology with sonorous audio.
As the first top-notch wireless speaker product from the Chinese telecommunications giant, Huawei Sound X marries first-rate aesthetics with exquisite craftsmanship and has been recognized by 2020 German iF Design Award committee for its stunning appearance.
Huawei Sound X has also been designed to facilitate seamless interaction with the smart devices in the listener’s vicinity. Gently tapping your phone against the Huawei Sound X transmits audio to the speaker, providing a new layer of emotional immersion for the music that you love.
The lossless, low-latency audio can be further bolstered by a proprietary EMUI 10.1 multi-device control panel, Huawei’s equivalent of Apple’s AirPlay, when it is transmitted from the P40.
The launch of the Huawei Sound X represents a new era for premium audio and speaker design, characterized by a deeply evocative sound that lingers while you listen.
A Delightfully Disruptive, Joint Huawei-Devialet Effort:
From phonographs to digital recorders, vinyl records to online music streaming, or traditional playback to Bluetooth transmission, audio technology has been the source of relentless innovation.
However, due to soaring demand for premium sound quality across a wider frequency range that faithfully reproduces the spirit of the original recording, the next paradigm for audio has stayed elusively just outside of the listening range. That is, until the release of the Huawei Sound X, the fruit of Huawei and Devialet‘s collaboration, which leverages the strengths of both technological heavyweights.
Devialet is a global audio brand that enjoys a unique reputation for its premium High-Fidelity products. The company has garnered 76 awards and 160 technology patents, and cemented its position as a leader in acoustics, with inventive products that boast thunderous power and unparalleled performance within a limited-sized body, while suppressing background noise to a remarkable degree, providing distortion-free sound even at maximum volume levels and low-pitched vibrations that can literally be felt in the listener’s bones.
The Huawei Sound X comes equipped with Devialet‘s patented signal-processing SAM® (Speaker Active Matching) technology, and iconic Push-Push symmetrical structure, faithfully rendering music with an audiophile’s attention to detail, within an impact-resistant form.
SAM® introduces an efficient compensation algorithm that is capable of adapting output signal to match the specific characteristics of the speaker and minimize sound distortion.
As a result, listening on the Sound X provides for total immersion, transporting you to the scene that the music evokes in the mind’s eye. The Push-Push structure places the two high-power speakers symmetrically so that their back-wave vibrations cancel each other out. This means even when the walls are shaking from the thundering bass tones, the Sound X body remains as cool as a cucumber.
iF Design-winning Sound X: All Eyes and Ears:
As a recent recipient of the iF Design Award, the Huawei Sound X dazzles within any room, as well as any sound field. Its exterior design was inspired by the golden dome of the black, glazed surface hints at the robust sound that seems to emanate from a bottomless well.
The main, glossy portion of the body is crafted through the use of an advanced non-conductive vacuum electroplating process, to ensure quality signal transmission and reception. The lower portion uses a seamless cover that further facilitates free, lossless transmission. The RGB tri-color indicator light on the top surface seemingly blends the emitted light with its surroundings, for a kaleidoscopic display that is reminiscent of a glamorous music hall.
Wireless home speaker brands often try to maintain bass performance by making their products large and unwieldy. The Huawei Sound X represents an elegant solution to this dilemma, incorporating dual subwoofers that deliver 60W of booming bass while remaining compact and portable for every day, all-purpose use. The innovative, visible bass unit creates a lasting visual impression to pair with the resonance of the audio.
Multi-Device Control Panel: Wireless, Lossless Audio Transmission:
The Huawei Sound X plays audio via Wi-Fi, a process that leads to much less data compression, and fewer lag or latency issues than Bluetooth transmission. That is built on Huawei self-developed technology – EMUI 10.1 Multi-Device Control Panel which is similar to Apple’s Airplay, can transmit high-quality audio whether online or local from Sound X speaker to Huawei Smartphone. Pull up the main menu of the smartphone, choose Sound X to playback any lossless audio from the device, and improve its listening experience.
The speaker also packs the “Huawei Share ” function, which saves users the hassle of waiting for a wireless or Bluetooth connection to establish. Instead, you can simply tap your phone’s NFC area against the Sound X, and velvety surround sound will begin to play without delay. Or to answer calls on your Huawei Sound X, just switch on-call mode, with a tap of your hand.

Huawei opens new flagship store in Vienna
Aside from its worldwide product availability, Huawei has established a new flagship store in Vienna, Austria. The smartphone maker is localizing its device availability and flagship services in Austria by taking its capital and largest city as one of the company’s bases.
According to the information, Huawei inaugurated the Vienna flagship store on 20th October. It’s located in the Kerntenstrasse which is one of Europe’s most prestigious stroller routes. The company chooses the center of Vienna for realizing the seamless interconnection between products and people.
Speaking of Vienna, it’s the 6th-largest city by population within city limits in the European Union and is widely popular for its expensive utilities and lifestyle. It must be the reason for the Chinese firm to increase the popularity and sales of its goods. The company seems to be confident about the positive response from the residents.
Below you can check the few clicks of the Vienna flagship store of Huawei-
Huawei Flagship Store:
The simplistic yet elegant design of the store is clearly visible in the images. This two-story emporium has artistic indoors with a chic design and spacious look. Moving ahead, the latest flagship and its signature products including smartphones, tablets, laptops, speakers, and displays are portraited inside the store.
Furthermore, many locals of the city join the opening ceremony in a massive number. However, the reports show that people have one more place where they can often check-in in Austria. Besides, the flagship store will be taking care of sales, after-sales, and product experience services.
On the other hand, the Chinese online flagship stores started to provide express delivery to the consumers. At present, the city includes Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dongguan, Shanghai, and Hangzhou, which has the quickest delivery time record of about a half-hour.
Apple opposing Huawei MatePod trademark, applied for new headphones
Recently, Huawei has published a new trademark opposition decision document that contains the relevant info about the Huawei MatePod trademark which is being opposed by Apple. It’s another trademark dispute of the smartphone maker with the other companies.
As per the information extracted from the document, the China base form has previously applied for the Huawei MatePod trademark name. It includes 9 kinds of international classifications under headphones electronic chips.
However, the US-based phone maker believes that its headphone collections- AirPods, EarPods are knowingly forged by the Chinese firm. Thus, it’s strictly opposed to using this name in practice. The company doesn’t want its customers to get confused.
The Chinese State Intellectual Property Office announced its verdict in favor of Huawei and grant the Huawei MatePod trademark name after giving a satisfactory clarification to Apple.
Although, the intellectual believes that the cited trademark (Apple accessories) and opposed trademark (Huawei MatePod) share the same functionality, marketing, and belong to the same industry. Still, the English latter composition, pronunciation, and overall appearance of both trademarks are easily recognizable.
Hence, there is no clashing scenario, so it won’t cause any confusion to the consumer of both companies. Moreover, the opponent’s claim of imitating the names hasn’t adequate facts, so the intellectuals are granting permission to Huawei.
Huawei Trademark Dispute:
Sony and Huawei: The Japanese company files a lawsuit against the Huawei Watch GT series in the UK IPO office. The reason was its famous racing game series Gran Turismo’ which is generally abbreviated as GT. However, the China-based firm isn’t easy to give up its famous smartwatch series label.
Xiaomi and Huawei: The Chinese Intellectual Property Database previously published a case dispute regarding Xiaomi’s “MiService” and Huawei’s “MyService” trademark. Containing almost similar pronunciation, and text style, Xiaomi’s trademark has been rejected.
