Recent reports and rumors from various Weibo bloggers claim that the Huawei Mate X3 will appear earlier than the Huawei P60 series. Thus, the first device supporting the next-generation communication function will be the Huawei Mate X3 and not the Huawei P60.
In the Huawei Mate 50 series, Huawei has made a new breakthrough in communication technology – Beidou satellite messaging. This is the first smartphone in the world that supports satellite communication. Though the company has announced this technology, it is still working on better solutions. Thanks to constant research and development, the next-generation communication technology from Huawei will be available soon. What’s more interesting, it seems that the Huawei Mate X3 foldable mobile phone, which is on its way, ought to be the one with the next-gen communication technology.
Huawei’s next-generation technology has three directions. They include “two-way sending and receiving text messages,” “voice text messages,” and “short-term voice calls.”
The Huawei Mate 50 series technology only supports one-way messaging when there is no terrestrial network. According to new leaks, the Huawei Mate X3 can increase voice communication and two-way mutual sending. The SMS function also acts as satellite communication and allows the sender to receive timely assistance in case of an emergency.
Currently, the Huawei Mate 50 and Mate Xs 2 series support the Beidou satellite messaging feature. The company’s executive once said, “This function is hardly used in daily life, but it can be used once in a lifetime, and this time may be a critical moment. It is very important to have features that will save lives in critical moments.”
Not only Huawei but other major OEMs are working on this as well. Most of the smartphones sporting the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor will support satellite emergency messaging. They will support this function due to Qualcomm and Iridium’s collaboration. By the way, the iPhone 14 already has such a function.
