With just one day to go until the announcement of its most powerful line of smartphones to date, Huawei confirms in a new teaser that the Mate 50 line will be launched with support for satellite communication, a feature that allows devices to always have a signal to guarantee phone calls. and exchanging messages.
- Huawei Mate 50 Pro may have a huge notch display
- Huawei unveils Nova 10 and Nova 10 Pro along with three other products
The video posted on the social network Weibo begins with the phone signal icon gaining strength until the last bar takes off and transforms into a rocket, which performs the separation stages and launches a satellite into space. During the separation and release we can read the phrases “signal beyond the ground” and “unlimited connection”.
All this reinforces the arrival of satellite communication to the Huawei Mate 50 series, although it does not confirm whether all devices in the line will have access to the feature or if this differential will be restricted to the most premium — and expensive — model.
It is likely that satellite communication will be dedicated to emergency calls and messages. Apple is also already working on the launch of the iPhone 14 with the same feature integrated into iMessage, allowing users to call for help even where there is no network signal available.
Just this week the Huawei Mate 50 appeared on the Geekbench benchmark tool confirming the device’s details and specifications. With model number DCO-AL00, the registered version has 8 GB of RAM and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip in a version that only supports 4G.
The listing still shows the operating system as Android 12, although Huawei presents the device with HarmonyOS 3.0 (which is nothing more than an adapted version of Google’s system without company services).
Huawei Mate 50 will bring the notch back
In addition to the Huawei Mate 50, Huawei is expected to introduce the new Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50 RS Porsche Edition. All smartphones are expected with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor without 5G and even more powerful cameras with variable aperture for better lighting adjustment.
While the Huawei Mate 50 should offer a screen with a circular notch to house only a front camera, the new Mate 50 Pro and 50 RS Porsche Edition can bet on the wide notch similar to the iPhone 13 to house a robust facial recognition system, a feature present in models from the Mate 20 line from 2018 and abandoned from the following year.
The Mate 50 series launch event takes place on September 6th, and the smartphones are expected to be sold exclusively in the Chinese market at first.
