It has been a while since the US-China trade war crippled Huawei’s smartphone business, as it cannot use Google Mobile Services as a result. But the Chinese tech giant is still pushing on and recently unveiled its latest flagship foldable smartphone, Mate Xs 2.
The Huawei Mate Xs 2 features a Falcon Wing design that is said to allow the movement of the hinge and screen to be precisely synchronised, thereby achieving a seamless and smooth flat surface. Furthermore, its outward folding mechanism means you will not see any crease when the foldable display is unfolded.
This smartphone has a 7.8-inch display when unfolded. Even when folded, it offers a large 6.5-inch display. This foldable display also has a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Plus, it comes with Huawei’s composite screen that absorbs shock and an anti-reflective nano optical layer to reduce glare. The Mate Xs 2 features Huawei 66W SuperCharge technology that allows for 90% charge within 30 minutes.
At the same time, Huawei also launched five wearables with the Watch GT 3 Pro, Band 7, Watch Fit 2, Watch D and S-Tag.
The Watch GT 3 Pro is Huawei’s latest flagship smartwatch with a 1.43-inch AMOLED colour display for sharp rendition of images. A sapphire glass lens protects the display while a ceramic back case ensures durability.
On the fitness front, the Watch GT 3 Pro features a built-in dual-band navigation system that takes advantage of five global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) – GPS, Beidou, GLONASS, Galileo and QZSS – to ensure accurate tracking of your runs. In addition, it is equipped with electrocardiogram (ECG) analysis, arterial stiffness detection and TruSeen 5.0+ data monitoring system for accurate heart health measurement and blood oxygen monitoring.
If you prefer something thinner, you can go for Huawei Band 7. According to its maker, it is the thinnest fitness tracker at less than 1cm in thickness and 16g in weight. It is equipped with a 1.47-inch AMOLED display and 2-week long battery life. Plus, it features Huawei’s new running measurement system that evaluates your running ability and offers updates of your progress in real time.
For fashionistas, you can opt for the Watch Fit 2 with its 1.74-inch AMOLED display and a chessboard launcher design for a more intuitive tapping experience.
But if you are the serious health-conscious kind, you should get the Huawei Watch D. It is the first consumer wrist-type blood pressure monitoring device that provides accurate blood pressure measurement anytime and anywhere, according to Huawei.
Despite being one-sixth the size and weight of a traditional blood pressure meter, the Watch D can measure blood pressure of up to 230mmHg – equivalent to the range of traditional blood pressure meters. This is due to its mini pump that has the capacity to reach a pressure of h40kPa.
Finally, if you want more precision and efficiency in your running metrics, there is the Huawei S-Tag. It is equipped with a 9-axis high-precision sensors to accurately monitor running posture based on the your foot and waist motion data. Based on 13 types of running posture data, the S-Tag helps you to attain a running posture that suits you.
All the products announced do not have local pricing and availability yet. But Huawei has promised customers in Singapore that they can look forward in experiencing these new products in the coming months.
