According to news on March 3, according to the dealer “Uncle Kanshan”, Huawei will release a number of new products in March, covering mobile phones, earphones, tablets, etc.
Specifically,The new products are the highly anticipated Huawei P60 series, Huawei Enjoy 60, Maimang 20 (which has been taken over by China Telecom) mobile phones, Freebuds Pro 2+, Freebuds 5 headphones, MatePad 11 2023 tablet and a watch code-named “Columbus”.
According to reports, the Huawei Mate X3 folding screen mobile phone will also be released in March, possibly together with the Huawei P60 series.
Among these new products, the most mysterious is the “Columbus” watch. The blogger “Fixed Focus Digital” said that Huawei will launch a high-end watch with a price of more than 8,000 yuan, which may be “Columbus”. It will be Huawei’s most expensive smart watch at present.
Coincidentally, after the exposure of “Columbus”, the blogger “The director of the factory is classmate Guan” posted a post saying: “If the watch can realize satellite communication and send satellite messages, what do you think?” implying “Columbus”?
Today, Huawei is the only company in China that can send satellite messages to mass mobile phones. It is not impossible to apply this technology to watches.
It is understood that the Huawei Mate 50 series is the first to support the hardware capabilities of Beidou satellite messages. It is the industry’s first mass smartphone that supports Beidou satellite messages. It can send rescue information to the outside world in an emergency without a ground network.
Not long ago, a “donkey friend” encountered heavy snow while hiking on the Gongger grassland in Inner Mongolia. Due to low visibility and no signal in the area, he separated from his teammates and lost contact. He then sent a distress call to his teammates through the Beidou satellite communication function of his Huawei mobile phone. SMS, successfully escaped.
If the watch can also support Beidou satellite news, it will allow non-Huawei mobile phone users or users who have not bought the Mate 50 series or Mate X2 to seek help from the outside world in time when there is no ground network in distress.
