Huawei Mate 50 support satellite communication? A few days ago, Ming Chi Koo, an Apple product analyst, announced that the iPhone 13 family could support satellite communications with low-altitude satellites orbiting the Earth by equipping themselves with a custom Qualcomm X60 chip.
A few days after the news broke, it became clear that the satellite communication of Apple’s new iPhones would be limited, and in fact, only when the user does not have access to their SIM card services, can they use satellite communication to send emergency messages.
Users can use this service in case of emergency such as plane crash, boat sinking, fire and … to ask for help. A new feature called “Satellite Emergency Message” will be added to the Messages app, which in addition to SMS and iMessage, will have a third service for emergency messages.
These messages are highlighted in gray bubbles to distinguish them from SMS in blue and iMessage in green.
Huawei Mate 50 support satellite communication for sending SMS
According to recent reports, the iPhone 13 family will not be the only smartphones that support satellite communication.
The Huawei Mate 50 flagship series may also support Beidou satellite system, according to a Weibo social media whistleblower in China. This feature allows users to send text messages via satellite communication, even when there is no antenna for the SIM card.
The Mate series are the flagships of the second half of Huawei, which are introduced every year with new technologies and are in fact the most advanced Huawei phones. But due to US restrictions on the Chinese company, which has made it very difficult for it to access advanced chipsets, as well as the Covend-19 outbreak, Huawei will unveil its flagship later this year.
The flagship P series, which focuses on the camera and attractive photography capabilities, is usually unveiled in the first quarter of each year, but due to problems, even the introduction of the Huawei P50 Pro was delayed this year in August, and a release is expected. The P50 standard will be introduced this month (September).
As a result, we should probably expect the introduction of the Huawei Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro in the first half of 2022. Given that Huawei had already used the Beidou satellite system for precise routing in the P40 series in 2020, it is expected that this time, too, it will be able to send and receive SMS via satellite communication with the help of this service. Leave.
It seems that the Chinese, despite all the restrictions imposed on them by the previous and current US administrations, still do not intend to give up and continue to innovate seriously.
Earlier this week, it was announced that the Huawei P50 will likely be introduced this month using the Snapdragon 888 chip and support for 4G network. According to the announcement, this phone will not support 5G network, and the reason is that Samsung does not have to provide advanced chips in order to sell the chip to Huawei.
The Huawei P50 will run HarmonyOS 2.1 by default, which will allow you to interact seamlessly with other Huawei products using Huawei ID.
Other Chinese brands will add satellite connectivity support to their handsets by the end of 2021
The revealer, who pointed to the Huawei Mate 50’s support for satellite communications, also mentioned that other Chinese brands will probably add this feature to their smartphones by the end of 2021.
The Beidou SMS service is part of the system’s satellite navigation system, which is used for various activities such as forest fire prevention, power system monitoring and transportation.
As mentioned, sending SMS using satellite communication allows the user to communicate with others and send the necessary message even when the user is in an antenna point.
Smartphone makers seem to be hoping to make phone calls and text messages without the need for a SIM card.
