Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, is doing very well in its tech business. However, the company’s mobile phone business has been very slow, many thanks to the U.S. ban. Top executives of the company have since said that Huawei is not in the mobile phone market to compete, it is only trying to survive. However, there are rumours that even its survival is now hanging on a thread. The rumours claim that Huawei may consider splitting its consumer business and abandoning its mobile phone business. The company, however, swiftly debunked this claim calling it fake news.
According to the brand, it will continue to increase the funds that it is putting into its mobile phone business. Huawei also insists that it will build flagship products that will stand the test of time. In fact, in addition to the Huawei P60 series that will launch in a few weeks, the company is also working on a new and very strong flagship phone. Based on the latest reports, the “latest and strongest flagship phone” should be the Huawei P60 series and Huawei Mate X3 foldable phone. These mobile phones will be official later this month.
According to previous reports, the Huawei Mate X3 will launch at a price under 10,000 yuan ($1,436). This will be the first time that the Huawei Mate X series phone will have a price tag of fewer than 10,000 yuan ($1,436). This will also make it the cheapest model in the series. Despite this report, another claim from Weibo tech blogger “Fixed Focus Digital”, claims that the price of this device could be higher than 13,000 yuan ($1,867). For comparison, the Huawei Mate X and Mate X2 have launch prices of 16,999 ($2,442) and 17,999 yuan ($2,585), respectively.
Huawei Mate X3 to use a new graphene heat tech
A new graphene heat dissipation tech will also be used in the Huawei Mate X3. Several internet users looked at Huawei’s patents, which showed that Huawei had created a brand-new kind of carbon material that could satisfy the demands of equipment for heat dissipation. According to the patent, it has the best thermal diffusivity (1100 mm2/s), is the thinnest (0.1 mm), and has the best breaking strength (80 MPa). The machine as a whole has a massively higher capability for heat dissipation. The thickness has drastically decreased.
Gizchina News of the week
According to the blogger, the metrics stated in the patent are only surface-level forms of a very powerful heat dissipation tech that can actually improve upon the Mate series’ current heat dissipation shortfalls. Using the new graphene heat dissipation tech, the Huawei Mate X3 might set a new standard for heat dissipation.
Simply put, this new material, which is believed to be utilized on the Huawei Mate X3, can both reduce the thickness of the overall device and improve the device’s ability to dissipate heat. The Mate X3 folding screen will be Huawei’s ideal folding screen mobile phone to date, summarizing the above news. It will provide voice chat and two-way mutual text messaging for the first time thanks to the addition of 2nd Gen satellite communication tech.
Other features of the Mate X3
Other features of the new phone include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, and a Sony 50MP IMX766 primary camera. This phone also supports the 2nd Gen satellite communication tech which adds voice communication and two-way mutual text messaging capabilities.
Moreover, the Huawei Mate X3 might also have the Mate 50 series’ first “emergency mode” that is available for purchase. The “energy-gathering pump” is specially engaged to repolymerize the surplus ions in the battery to fulfil the urgent needs of low-power apps when the power of the mobile phone is less than 1%.
The device uses a blend of 50MP, 13MP, and 12MP rear AI triple cameras for imaging. The primary camera could be a Sony IMX766 sensor that supports the XMAGE imaging tech. Theoretically, other features like NFC, twin speakers, side fingerprint scanners, and configuration features like multi-angle hovering won’t be missing either. This coming flagship mobile phone will be a beauty no doubt and it is worth all the wait.
History of Huawei foldable mobile phones
Huawei, a Chinese multinational technology company, released its first foldable phone, the Huawei Mate X, in February 2019 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The device featured a foldable 8-inch OLED display that folded outward, allowing users to have a larger screen when unfolded. The phone also had 5G connectivity and was powered by Huawei’s Kirin 980 processor.
However, the release of the Mate X was delayed several times. This is reportedly due to issues with the device’s design and software. It was finally released in China in November 2019, and in other regions, including Europe, in February 2020.
In February 2020, Huawei announced the successor to the Mate X, the Huawei Mate Xs. The new device had a similar design to the original Mate X. However, it came with an upgraded processor, the Kirin 990, and a more durable screen.
In 2021, Huawei released its third foldable phone, the Huawei Mate X2. The Mate X2 featured a new design that folded inward, similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. It had an 8-inch foldable display and a 6.45-inch cover display. The device was powered by Huawei’s Kirin 9000 processor and ran on Huawei’s HarmonyOS operating system.
However, due to the ongoing US trade restrictions, Huawei has faced challenges. It has issues in producing and selling its mobile phones, including its foldable phones in global markets. As a result, it has struggled to maintain its position as a major player in the smartphone industry.
