At MWC Shanghai 2021, Huawei’s Deputy Chairman, Ken Hu spoke about the impact of the COVID-19 on the market and people around the world as well as the technologies that play a key role in fighting the pandemic.
“Innovation isn’t just about solving the challenges we face today,” said Hu. “It’s about lighting up tomorrow. Once we get the pandemic under control, we need to think hard about how we can innovate to improve quality of life, make businesses smarter, and create a more inclusive world.” He explained that, while unequal access to digital technology and digital skills has widened the digital divide, the pandemic has made the situation significantly worse. “We have to focus innovation on bridging the gap between the haves and have-nots, and on driving digital inclusion”.
Ken Hu said the world’s largest telecom equipment maker and China’s biggest smartphone vendor recorded “slight” growth on the back of continuous support from business partners amid the U.S. entity list restrictions.
“The past year was, indeed, very difficult [for Huawei], [but] I think it is the same for everyone. Huawei is no exception,” said Hu, without elaborating on the company’s financial performance last year. He indicated that operations last year were “stable” and met the company’s expectations.
“Innovation isn’t just about solving the challenges we face today,” Hu said. “It’s about lighting up tomorrow. Once we get the pandemic under control, we need to think hard about how we can innovate to improve quality of life, make businesses smarter and create a more inclusive world.”
Huawei’s revenue reached $136.7 billion last year, up 11.2 percent from 2019, while profits grew 10.4 percent to $9.9 billion, according to an earlier report by Shanghai-based publication China Business News.
Hu also presented some of the latest figures on Huawei’s growth over the past year, Huawei has worked with carriers to ensure the stable operations of over 300 networks across 170 countries. In Indonesia, Huawei employed a new digital delivery technology to deeply over 50000 base stations.
Hu also showed the audience Huawei’s Cyberverse app, an advanced AR application that demonstrates how 5G networks, 5G devices, and AR technology can coverage to create a more immersive virtual experience, whether it be a real-life forest or a simulation in outer space.
The new app makes it possible to seamlessly integrate virtual and physical realities with high-precision, centimeter-level positioning capabilities, massive computing power, and high-bandwidth transmission through 5G. Huawei expects Cyberverse to create many new growth opportunities in multiple sectors, including education, entertainment, tourism, transportation, and navigation.
New Technologies for smart business:
Technologies such as like 5G, cloud, and AI have begun playing an important role in manufacturing, accelerating the transition to more intelligent and flexible operations. Hu explained how Huawei’s own Dongguan South Factory is currently using 5G networks with cloud-based AI applications in its 5G smartphone production lines to drive huge productivity gains.
The Chinese tech giant predicts that, by 2025, 97% of all large companies will use AI. Other estimates for 2025 include that 55% of China’s entire GDP will be driven by the digital economy, and 60% of global carrier revenue will be derived from industrial customers. Hu noted that to achieve these projections, “all industries should focus on improving their capabilities, building out the ecosystem, and creating value with digital technology.”
According to the company, Huawei is focusing on 5G technologies to help develop the digital transformation in all industries. Hu noted that Huawei’s innovation is focused on three areas: Technology, Products, and Applications.
- Technology: Huawei’s new 5G Super Uplink solution delivers unmatched uplink speeds, helping companies break through a major bottleneck in the industrial Internet.

- Applications: Huawei’s Wireless X Labs incubates 5G applications with partners across a wide range of domains like manufacturing, healthcare, finance, and transportation. With these partners, Huawei is exploring how 5G can help different industries go digital more effectively.
Hu reported that Huawei is collaborating with its partners and regional carriers and signed over 1000 contracts for industrial 5G applications in more than 20 industries.
Huawei currently plans to deploy more than 2,000 RuralStar base stations in remote regions around the country. This will help increase mobile coverage in Ghana from 83% to 95% and bring previously unconnected communities online for the first time.
Similarly, new AI services deployed on HUAWEI CLOUD are being used to help a small company in Malaysia double its production capacity without increasing headcount during the pandemic.
Hu also shared how 5G networks have been used to enable remote ultrasounds and CT scans that help address imbalanced distribution and shortages of medical resources.
“While the pandemic closed many doors, innovation has opened new windows of hope,” He said “Huawei will continue to pursue open partnerships with its customers and partners to help industries go digital and make life better, businesses smarter, and the world more inclusive,” Huawei added.
At MWC 2021, Huawei is showcasing seven new ICT network concepts, including Wireless 1+N, Home+, All-optical Bases, and Cloud-network Smart Connection, as well as nine new products and solutions, including, gigabit home broadband, private lines, and intelligent cloud network.
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.
