Chip-Device-Cloud Synergy Creates an Intelligent and Personalized Experience Across All Scenarios

In the smartphone domain, Huawei unveiled the HUAWEI Mate 20 Series intelligent phones.

In the PC domain, we unveiled our MateBook X Pro, a star product. Defining features of this new laptop include:

  • The optimized structural design and hidden camera create an almost borderless display.
  • 3K Low Temperature Poly-silicon (LTPS) display and quad-speaker Dolby sound system deliver an incredible audiovisual experience. 
  • A fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button enables one-button startup, directing users to the working interface immediately. 
  • A combination of Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other communications technologies allows cross-device file transfers to be completed within seconds with just one touch.

In the tablet domain, we debuted the HUAWEI MediaPad M5.

  • Four speakers with Harman Kardon professional tuning are acoustically engineered to support Hi-Res audio quality and produce a completely immersive virtual surround sound experience. The tablet makes users feel like they are in a cinema. 
  • The laptop also comes with the latest HUAWEI M-Pen, giving users an even more intuitive way to interact with their tablet.
In the smart wearable domain, we unveiled the HUAWEI WATCH GT.
  • This device featured a slim design and double chipset architecture, and offers a 2-week battery life. 
  • HUAWEI TruSeenTM 3.0 heartrate monitoring technology provides more efficient and accurate real-time measurements of your heartrate. This allows uninterrupted, scientific advice for workouts and support for sleep monitoring and all-day stress tracking. 
  • Water-resistant up to 50 meters, HUAWEI WATCH GT can recognize what kind of swimming stroke the wearer is using. 
  • The watch can also acquire users’ fitness data when they are running, riding, swimming, climbing, or cross-country running.

Huawei Mobile Services complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and all other applicable laws and regulations. We adopt differential privacy technology and hold the protection of user privacy as our paramount principle. In 2018:

  • We began working with the industry to establish the Android green alliance. This alliance uses AI to detect malicious behavior, such as viruses, spam advertising, spoofing, and infringements upon privacy, guaranteeing higher application security for users. 
  • Working with various partners, Huawei Pay became the first to release several innovative features, including the smartphone shield, NFC tag payment, a combination of NFC payment and QR code payment, and eID loading to smartphones.

Driving Industry Development Through Exploration and Breakthroughs in Basic Research

In network theory research, we proposed theoretical challenges in rolling out future networks based on our vision of a digital and intelligent future. These challenges include:

In network technology research, we:

  • Launched AI Fabric technology, which will help build an intelligent and lossless data center network with low latency. 
  • Were the first to debut the open and unified packet switching architecture. This architecture is capable of delivering performance equal to that of a closed cell switching network within a traditional router. 
  • Implemented a deterministic forwarding technology that can ensure microsecond-level jitter bound at the IP layer, enriching the services that IP technologies can deliver.

In optical network research, we:

  • Continuously increased the rate of single-wavelength and broaden the fiber spectrum for long-haul optical transmission, doubling single-fiber capacity. 
  • Proposed a data center network architecture based on a high-density fiber-level OXC system, enabling low- latency, low-energy-consumption, and large-capacity OXC-based data center networks. 
  • Created an industry-leading ultra-large-capacity (Pbps) wavelength-level OXC system, which has seen large-scale commercial use within the core switching nodes of backbone networks.

In advanced wireless network research, we:

  • Actively researched how to boost full-band spectrum efficiency, ensure wide-area and three-dimensional coverage, create a heterogeneous network architecture that can connect all vertical services, and on potentially fundamental technologies. 
  • Persistently explored end-to-end vertical slicing solutions, and completed pre-commercial trials in several industry scenarios with partners. 
  • Worked with industry partners to push the long-term technology research in the wireless field forward.

In research of future data centers, we:

  • Remained focused on continuous innovation in infrastructure, and explored new types of computing and storage by returning to the fundamentalsphysics, chemistry, materials, and mathematics. 
  • Built models, algorithms, components, and circuits to enable more energy-efficient computing and higher density storage.

During research into quantum computing, we unveiled HiQ, an industry-leading cloud service platform. HiQ includes a quantum computing simulator and a quantum programming framework on the simulator.
