HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro Black : A Hands-On Experience!

We had the opportunity to try out the HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro, and here is our hands-on experience of the Black model!

 

HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro Black : A Hands-On Experience!

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro is the mainstream model in the HUAWEI Mate 40 series. Its Black colour option has a highly-reflective glass surface.

Built around the new Kirin 9000 mobile platform, our review sample comes with 8 GB of LPDDR5 memory and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.

The HUAWEI Kirin 9000 is the world’s first 5nm 5G SoC, with :

  • a high-speed Arm Cortex-A77 core running at 3.13 GHz,
  • three sustained-performance Arm Cortex-A77 cores running at 2.54 GHz, and
  • four low-power Arm Cortex-A55 cores running at 2.05 GHz
  • two Big-Core NPUs + 1 Tiny-Core NPU
  • integrated HUAWEI Balong 5000 multi-mode 5G modem

 

Its Horizon Display has 88° curved edges on both sides, which supports virtual controls, even though it comes with physical volume control buttons.

This 6.75-inch OLED display boasts a resolution of 1344 x 2772 pixels, a 90 Hz refresh rate and a 240 Hz touch sampling rate.

The display has a pill-shaped punch hole, which conceals its 13 MP front camera (f/2.4 aperture) and a 3D depth sensor. It doesn’t have an LED flash but uses screen flash instead.

Arranged in its Space Ring design at the back, its Leica triple camera system is made up of :

  • a 50 MP main camera, with f/1.9 aperture,
  • a 20 MP ultra-wide camera, with f/1.8 aperture,
  • a 12 MP periscope camera with 5X optical zoom, and
  • a laser autofocus system.

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro comes with an IR emitter at the top, with a pair of microphone and speakers.

A second set of microphone and speaker is located at the bottom, next to the USB Type C port and the hybrid SIM tray.

Its double-sided hybrid SIM tray supports either two nano SIM cards, or a single nano SIM card with a HUAWEI NM card. The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro also supports an eSIM.

The HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro is powered by a 4,400 mAh battery, and supports both 66 watt wired charging and 50 watt wireless charging.

It comes with a 66 watt HUAWEI SuperCharge adaptor in the box, allowing for super-fast charging.

MeeTime : Free Voice + Video Calls On HUAWEI Devices!

Apple has FaceTime, and now, HUAWEI has MeeTime, offering FREE video and voice calls.

Find out what features HUAWEI MeeTime offers over its competitors!

 

HUAWEI MeeTime : What Is It?

Like Apple FaceTime, HUAWEI MeeTime is a proprietary video and voice service that FREE video and voice calls, albeit only on their respective devices.

HUAWEI introduced MeeTime in EMUI 10.1, and it currently works with HUAWEI devices like :

But unlike claims of free Internet and calls through BeiDou, MeeTime actually delivers free voice and video calls.

 

HUAWEI MeeTime : Key Features

Of course, you can already make free voice and video calls on other apps, like WhatsApp and Telegram. So let’s find out what features HUAWEI MeeTime offers over their competitors :

Feature #1 : Full HD Quality

HUAWEI MeeTime supports video calling at resolutions of up to 1080p (Full HD) – 1920 x 1080 pixels.

And thanks to built-in optimisations (see below), it can maintain that video resolution even with weak cellular or Wi-Fi reception.

Feature #2 : Screen Sharing

HUAWEI MeeTime has a two-way Screen Sharing function that lets users share their screens while chatting, which can be extremely useful.

For instance, you can use it to share what flights you just found with your partner, without sending it as a separate message, or interrupting the chat.

Feature #3 : Third Party Support

While HUAWEI MeeTime is a proprietary technology limited to HUAWEI devices, they are encouraging third party vendors to integrate their devices. For example :

  • Kandao Meeting 360° : You can connect your HUAWEI device to this Kandao teleconferencing camera to take advantage of its pro-grade features.
  • Drift Ghost Action Cameras : You can connect your HUAWEI smartphone to a Drift Ghost camera strapped to your vehicle to livestream your adventures.

Feature #4 : Network Adaptation

In poor network conditions, HUAWEI MeeTime dynamically adapts to changes in bandwidth, and uses super resolution technology to compensate for the loss of video quality, in real time.

In addition, it uses the Link Turbo technology to dynamically switch between Wi-Fi and LTE to deliver the best possible speeds, without interruption.

Feature #5 : Low Light Adaptation

HUAWEI MeeTime adapts dynamically to low light conditions, using facial recognition technology and other optimisations.

Feature #6 : End-to-End Encryption

In addition to working only on HUAWEI devices, HUAWEI MeeTime requires you to sign-in with a HUAWEI ID.

To assuage concerns of privacy, all calls are encrypted end-to-end by default. This guarantees that no one else can listen into your conversations.

Will BeiDou Give HUAWEI Phones FREE Calls + Internet?

Now that the final BeiDou satellite will soon be launched, people are claiming that it will give HUAWEI phones free calls and Internet!

Find out what the facts are, and why people believe BeiDou will really give HUAWEI phones free calls and Internet!

 

BeiDou : What Is It?

BeiDou is China’s own satellite positioning and navigational system, functionally similar to GPS, GLONASS and Galileo.

So far, the Chinese have launched 59 satellites, from three generations, with the last BeiDou-3 satellite scheduled to launch in a few days.

 

Will BeiDou Give HUAWEI Phones FREE Calls + Internet?

People are sharing this message, claiming that BeiDou will give every HUAWEI phone unlimited calls and Internet without a SIM card!

If u r able to change/ upgrade ur hp then u may want to consider Huawei devices.

Please buy Huawei hp because after the End of June 2020. All Huawei hp will be equipped with Huawei Own Satellite BEIDOU Chipset which will allow you to make Phone Calls and Internet DATA usages without any Charges for Life and No Sim Card is required. Save a lot of money in the long run??

Baidu is do much more powerful than old uncle Google. Baidu is the major driver for 5G, free satellite calls, wider coverage, higher speed, etc. Anyway no one can stop u fr using uncle Google if u so loved him using any type of hp (iOS, Android, Symbian of others)!! U can also VPN to tunnel into many networks & firewalls….!!

 

BeiDou + HUAWEI Phones : The Facts!

The message is yet another fake story about HUAWEI. Here is a video explanation, with details below :

Fact #1 : Smartphones Have Supported BeiDou For Years

HUAWEI, like many other brands, have long introduced multi-constellation support for navigational signals.

Their smartphones not only support GPS, but also BeiDou, GLONASS, and Galileo, switching to whichever satellite system offers the best performance or accuracy.

The first smartphones to support BeiDou were introduced in 2013. It’s not like BeiDou is only being introduced after June 2020.

Fact #2 : BeiDou Is Supported By Foreign Mobile Platforms

BeiDou civilian signals can be used by foreign mobile platforms, and are in fact supported by Samsung Exynos and MediaTek mobile platforms.

Qualcomm, for example, introduced support for BeiDou signals in their Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) platform back in 2013. So did MediaTek with their MT3332 / MT3333 SoCs.

So many non-HUAWEI smartphones use chipsets that support BeiDou.

Fact #3 : BeiDou Cannot Provide Calls / Internet

BeiDou is primarily a global positioning satellite system, with limited communications capability – just short messaging services (SMS).

However, only the military (or related security services like civil defence) are given access to the BeiDou SMS service, using special satellite phones.

Civilian devices, like HUAWEI smartphones, can only use its positioning services, and have NO ACCESS to any communications capability.

A CGTN news report is probably responsible for this misunderstanding (watch our video above).

Fact #4 : Calls + Internet Still Require A SIM Card / eSIM

While the latest HUAWEI P40 series smartphones support eSIM, other HUAWEI smartphones still require a physical SIM card.

But whether your smartphone uses a physical SIM card or eSIM, it needs some sort of SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) number to obtain call and Internet services from your mobile service provider.

Fact #5 : HUAWEI Offers A Free Video Call Service

HUAWEI recently introduced a new video call feature called MeeTime, which allows all HUAWEI devices to make video calls for free.

This includes tablets like the HUAWEI MatePad Pro, and computers like the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro.

HUAWEI just introduced a new 5G smartphone – the nova 7 SE, which comes with a 64 MP quad-camera system.

Join us for our hands-on experience, and find out if the HUAWEI nova 7 SE is the affordable 5G smartphone you have been waiting for!

 

HUAWEI nova 7 SE : Colour Options

The HUAWEI nova 7 SE will come in three colour options (from left to right) – Space Silver, Crush Green, Midsummer Purple.

 

HUAWEI nova 7 SE : Price + Deal!

The HUAWEI nova 7 SE has an official RRP of RM 1,499 / ~US$350 / ~£280 / ~A$513 / S$528. Here are some online purchase options :

Malaysia : Space Silver | Crush Green

Singapore : Space Silver | Crush Green

Best of all, every purchase comes with these great freebies :

  • HUAWEI Band 4
  • HUAWEI nova 7 SE case
  • 3 months subscription to dimsum
  • 6 months subscription to HUAWEI Book
  • 12 months subscription to HUAWEI Cloud (15 GB)
  • HUAWEI Member Center Rewards worth RM 1,000
  • A chance to win 1 of 3 Proton X70 cars!

 

HUAWEI nova 7 SE : Hands-On Experience!

The HUAWEI nova 7 SE 5G is designed to be an affordable 5G variant of the nova 7i that was launched earlier.

It is powered by the Kirin 820 5G platform, and runs on EMUI 10 with HMS. Our review unit comes with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

On top of using a faster 5G-capable platform, the SE version comes with an upgraded 64 MP main camera, together with an 8 MP ultra-wide camera, a 2 MP macro camera, and a 2 MP depth sensor.

On the left side, you will find the SIM + NM card tray. This is a hybrid SIM tray, which supports two nano SIM cards, or one nano SIM card and one NM card.

The NM card is HUAWEI’s proprietary storage card – basically, a nano SIM-sized microSD card.

The Volume control buttons are on the right side, together with the Power button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor.

The side placement of the fingerprint sensor allows you to unlock the smartphone even when it’s mounted to your car’s dashboard.

There’s nothing at the top, except for a second microphone port, which is used for noise cancellation.

The HUAWEI nova 7 SE comes with a 3.5 mm audio jack, located at the bottom, together with the USB Type C port.

The HUAWEI nova 7 SE is powered by a relatively-large 4,000 mAh battery, which can be quickly recharged by its 40 watt fast charger.

HUAWEI nova 7 Series : How To Install The Apps You Want!

All HUAWEI nova 7 series smartphones run on EMUI 10 with HUAWEI Mobile Services replacing Google Mobile Services.

Many potential buyers are concerned about what apps they can install on HUAWEI Mobile Services. So here are the two ways you can install the apps you want.

Using HUAWEI Phone Clone

HUAWEI Phone Clone offers an easy way to migrate all of your favourite Android apps from your old smartphone to any HUAWEI nova 7 series smartphone.

HUAWEI Phone Clone comes pre-installed on the HUAWEI nova 7 series smartphone, and you are given the option to use it during the installation process.

Just let it link, and sync both devices, to transfer all of the data and apps from your old smartphone to your HUAWEI nova 7 series smartphone. It’s that easy!

Using HUAWEI AppGallery

HUAWEI AppGallery is the replacement for Google Play Store, and serves as a way for HUAWEI to deliver apps through HUAWEI Mobile Services (which replaces Google Mobile Services).

When it first started out, it was quite bare, but HUAWEI spent an incredible amount of time, money and resources to entice developers to add their apps.

Here is a quick look at the number of apps you can now download through HUAWEI AppGallery.

Recommended : HUAWEI AppGallery : What Apps Can You Install?

 

Note : Apps That Require GMS

Do note that some Android apps require GMS for some features.

  • Telegram : GMS is required for location services. You can use it, you just cannot search for a location, or share your location.
  • Gmail : You will have to use a different email client, like Outlook. Or just use a web browser to get access to Gmail.
  • YouTube : The YouTube app requires GMS, so you will have to watch YouTube on a web browser.
  • Grab : The Grab app requires GMS for mapping functions. You can use it, but you won’t be able to locate your current position, or track your trip.

HUAWEI P40 Smartphones : What Apps Can You Install?

A big concern for anyone buying any of the HUAWEI P40 series smartphones is what apps can you install without Google Play Store.

Find out what apps HUAWEI AppGallery offers, and what you can do if an app you want is not in there.

 

HUAWEI P40 Smartphones : A Quick Primer

HUAWEI launched three P40 series smartphones, all running on EMUI 10 using the Kirin 990 platform :

  • HUAWEI P40 : 6.1-inch OLED display, Leica triple camera system, 3800 mAh battery
  • HUAWEI P40 Pro : 6.58-inch OLED display, Leica quad-camera system, 4,200 mAh battery
  • HUAWEI P40 Pro+ : 6.58-inch OLED display, Leica penta-camera system, 4,200 mAh battery

 

HUAWEI AppGallery

HUAWEI AppGallery is the replacement for Google Play Store, and serves as a way for HUAWEI to deliver apps through HUAWEI Mobile Services (which replaces Google Mobile Services).

When it first started out, it was quite bare, but HUAWEI spent an incredible amount of time, money and resources to entice developers to add their apps.

Here is a quick look at the number of apps you can now download through HUAWEI AppGallery on the P40, P40 Pro or P40 Pro+ smartphones :

 

HUAWEI P40 Series : Directly-Available Key Apps

As you can see in the video above, there are now thousands of apps in the HUAWEI AppGallery for the HUAWEI P40 series.

We went through and found the key apps that many people (especially in Malaysia) will want to install :

Communications : WeChat, Viber, Truecaller, KakaoTalk, DingTalk

Social Media : Snapchat, TikTok, VK, Weibo, BIGO LIVE

Telco : Maxis, Celcom, MyDigi, Hotlink, myunifi, Yoodo, Tune Talk, XOX, Singtel

eWallet : Touch n’ Go eWallet, Boost

Shopping : Lazada, Shopee, ZALORA, Carousell

Banking : RHB, Public Bank, Ambank, UOB Singapore, DBS, SCB

Video + Audio : VLC, MX Player, iflix, VIU, dimsum, JOOX

Work : Microsoft Office, WPS Office, OfficeSuite

Games : Knights of Valour, Asphalt 9, Plants vs Zombies, Honkai Impact 3

 

HUAWEI P40 Series : Apps Available Through Links

Sometimes, you will be redirected to the app’s official website to download the APK (Android Package).

  • Facebook
  • WhatsApp

In some cases, you will be redirected to the mobile website to make use of the service :

  • Twitter
  • YouTube
  • Google Maps
  • Maybank2U

 

What About Apps Not Available In HUAWEI AppGallery?

As you can tell, HUAWEI AppGallery still lacks many important apps, but does that mean you should forego the HUAWEI P40 series smartphones?

Now, your HUAWEI P40 series smartphone may lack Google Play Store, but it still runs on Google Android. So, all those apps you want can actually be “side-loaded” into your HUAWEI P40 series smartphone.

Safest Way : Directly From Official Website

The safest way is to visit the official website for the apps you want on your HUAWEI P40 series smartphones, and look for the Download APK link.

Tap on it to download the app APK file, and then install it (you will be asked to allow installation from Unknown Sources), and you are ready to go!

Alternative : APK Mirror Website

If the official website of the app does not offer a Download APK option, then you have to resort to an APK mirror website.

Basically, these are websites that offers downloads of installation (APK) files from Google Play Store. Just search for the apps you want, download them on your HUAWEI P40 series smartphone, and install!

However, note that there is a risk that they may be tampered with, or injected with malware. So it is best to stick with reliable, trustworthy APK mirror websites like APKMirror, F-Droid or APKPure.com.

 

HUAWEI P40 Series : Where To Buy?

Here in Malaysia, you can purchase the HUAWEI P40 series smartphones through the official HUAWEI online store :

HUAWEI P40 Pro : How To Setup For The First Time!

For those who are planning to setup the HUAWEI P40 on your own, we recorded this video to show you step-by-step how to do it!

  1. After the HUAWEI P40 Pro boots up, the first thing you need to do is to select the language of choice.
    Then tap the Get Started button.
  2. In the next screen, you need to select your Country, which will enables localised presets for your phone.
  3. Next, you will need to agree to the End User License Agreement.
    Tap to check the box, and then tap Next at the bottom of the page.
  4. You will be warned if you did not installed your SIM card.
    The same screen also gives you the option of adding an eSIM.
  5. If you have a Wi-Fi network, you can now log into your Wi-Fi network.
    Wait until the P40 Pro connects to your Wi-Fi network and gains Internet access.
    Then tap Next at the bottom of the screen.
  6. The next screen details HUAWEI’s data and privacy policy.
    Tap the Details link for more information, or tap Next to continue with the setup process.
  7. Now it’s time to sign into your HUAWEI account, or create a new HUAWEI ID.
    You can also choose to log in via SMS, if you don’t want a HUAWEI account.
    If you prefer to skip this part and do it later, but remember – you need a HUAWEI account to make use of key features like the AppGallery and Find My Phone.
    But to skip this for now, tap Later, and tap Later again in the reminder pop-up at the bottom.
  8. In the next page, you will be allowed to disable certain HUAWEI Mobile Services.
    Ad-ID statistics is enabled by default. We recommend disabling it.
    – Tap Enabled to go into the Ad-ID statistics option page.
    – Tap Disable collection of Ad-ID statistics, and then go back to the HUAWEI Mobile Services page.
    For enhanced privacy, you might want to disable personalised ads as well.
  9. Now it’s time to protect your HUAWEI P40 Pro. We recommend using Fingerprint ID.
  10. First, you will need to set a 6-digit PIN number as a backup.
    You’ll need to key in those 6 digits again to verify.
  11. Next, tap the Add Fingerprint button to start training the fingerprint sensor.
  12. To train the fingerprint sensor, repeatedly press your finger firmly on the fingerprint icon and lift when you feel a vibration
    Midway, you will be asked to tilt your finger to capture the edges of your fingerprint
  13. Once you have successfully enrolled your fingerprint, tap OK to continue with the setup process.
  14. Next, you will be given the opportunity to setup Face Recognition as well.
    Tap Skip if you want to stick with just the fingerprint and PIN number.
  15. In the next page, you are given the opportunity to opt out of certain Enhanced services.
    Have no clue  what you are opting for? Tap Set Up Enhanced services to find out!
    – The Wi-Fi+ and Weather service are safe to opt for.
    – HiSearch basically lets you search both data on your smartphone, as well as on the Internet
    – Finally, MeeTime lets you make high definition video and voice calls using your HUAWEI account.
  16. Next, the Share Analytics page lets you opt out of sharing usage data with HUAWEI.
    We recommend you tap Later.
  17. HUAWEI Location Services is an important feature, so definitely tap Enable.
  18. You should certainly let HUAWEI keep your software updated. So tap Enable And Continue.
  19. Now, you will be given the opportunity to import data from your old smartphone. Remember – you cannot download backups from your Google Drive.
  20. After you are done, you will need to go through a tutorial on the new on display navigation gestures.
  21. Finally, HUAWEI gives you a selection of popular apps you can install through the AppGallery.
    If you don’t want to install the pre-selected apps, just uncheck them.
    After you finish selecting the apps you want, tap Next.
  22. Then you can decide if you want to install the apps now, or wait until you have Wi-Fi

That’s it! Your HUAWEI P40 Pro is ready to use!

HUAWEI P40 Pro 5G Preview : Visionary Photography!

The new HUAWEI P40 Pro smartphone promises Visionary Photography, thanks to its 50MP Leica quad camera system!

We got our hands on the Deep Sea Blue model, and here is our hands-on preview of HUAWEI’s latest photography-centric smartphone!

 

HUAWEI P40 Pro : Hands-On Experience!

The HUAWEI P40 Pro is the middle brother of the new P40 family of smartphones, and is only available as 5G variants. It has a 6.58-inch OLED display, with a resolution of 1200 x 2640 pixels, and a 90 Hz refresh rate.

The only buttons you will find on the HUAWEI P40 Pro are the Power and Volume control buttons on the right side.

The SIM and NM hybrid tray is located at the bottom, next to the USB Type C data and charging port.

At the top, you will find a second microphone (for noise cancellation), next to the infra-red emitter (which enables its Smart Remote feature).

 

HUAWEI P40 Pro : Key Features

New 5G Mobile Platform

The HUAWEI P40 Pro uses the new Kirin 990 5G mobile SoC, with a triple-tier architecture :

  • two ARM Cortex-A76 high-performance cores at 2.86 GHz

HUAWEI Mate Xs Foldable Smartphone : Hands-On Preview!

We recently had access (for a limited time) with a few HUAWEI Mate Xs foldable smartphones, and here is our hands-on preview!

We will also share with you EVERYTHING you need to know about the HUAWEI Mate Xs, including its specifications and price!

 

HUAWEI Mate Xs : Hands-On Experience!

Let’s start with our hands-on experience with the new HUAWEI Mate Xs foldable smartphone. Be sure to check out how the Falcon Wing mechanism works, and look at how flat the display looks after it’s fully unfolded!

The only buttons you will find on the Mate Xs are located along the right edge – the Power button which doubles as the fingerprint sensor, and the Volume control buttons.

The HUAWEI Mate Xs comes with a dual-slot hybrid card tray at the top. It supports two nano SIM cards, or a single nano SIM card and an NM card (for additional storage of up to 256 GB).

Even though it comes with a substantial camera bar on the right side, there is no 3.5 mm audio jack. Only a USB Type C, which supports USB 3.1 Gen1 – basically USB 3.0.

There is no “front camera”, because of its foldable design – you can just flip it over and use the back display and the “rear cameras” for selfies. This gives you great flexibility because the Leica quad camera system offers :

  • a 40 MP main camera, with f/1.8 aperture
  • a 16 MP ultra-wide camera, with f/2.2 aperture
  • an 8 MP telephoto camera, with f/2.4 aperture, and
  • a Time of Flight camera, with f/2.2 aperture

But its main killer feature is the ability to unfold the display to create a large, tablet-like 8-inch OLED display!

When folded, the front display is 6.6-inch in size, while the rear display is 6.38-inch in size.

 

HUAWEI Mate Xs : Improved HUAWEI Mate X!

The HUAWEI Mate Xs is basically an improved version of their first foldable smartphone, the HUAWEI Mate X.

It features the same design, with an external 8-inch foldable display, and a Leica quad-camera system. But there have been some changes internally.

New 5G Mobile Platform

Instead of pairing the Kirin 980 mobile SoC with the Balong 5000 5G chip, the HUAWEI Mate Xs uses the new Kirin 990 5G mobile SoC, with a triple-tier architecture :

  • two ARM Cortex-A76 high-performance cores at 2.86 GHz
  • two ARM Cortex-A76 sustained performance cores at 2.36 GHz
  • four ARM Cortex-A55 low-power cores at 1.95 GHz

It also comes with a powerful 16-core ARM Mali-G76 GPU, and a new Da Vinci neural architecture with 2 big NPUs and 1 small NPU.

Improved Cooling

Keeping the Kirin 990 5G cool is a new flexible bionic graphite cooling system that folds with the display, and dissipates heat through both sections.

Improved Falcon Wing Mechanism

While it uses the same foldable design and foldable OLED display, the Falcon Wing mechanism has been improved somewhat.

Leica Quad Camera System

The Leica quad camera system which works as both front and rear cameras offer great flexibility due to its mix of cameras :

  • a 40 MP main camera, with f/1.8 aperture
  • a 16 MP ultra-wide camera, with f/2.2 aperture
  • an 8 MP telephoto camera, with f/2.4 aperture, and
  • a Time of Flight camera, with f/2.2 aperture

HUAWEI Mate Xs vs Mate X : What’s Different?

The HUAWEI Mate Xs foldable smartphone has been announced, and will soon be here!

But what’s the difference between the HUAWEI Mate Xs, and the HUAWEI Mate X? Let’s find out!

 

HUAWEI Mate Xs vs Mate X : What’s Different?

Let’s start with our hands-on experience with the new HUAWEI Mate Xs foldable smartphone. You won’t be able to tell the HUAWEI Mate Xs from the HUAWEI Mate X by touching and feeling them – they both look and feel identical.

The HUAWEI Mate Xs is basically an improved version of their first foldable smartphone, the HUAWEI Mate X.

It features the same design, with an external 8-inch foldable display, and a Leica quad-camera system. But there have been some changes internally.

New 5G Mobile Platform

The HUAWEI Mate X pairs the Kirin 980 mobile SoC with the Balong 5000 5G chip. While that offers 5G connectivity and a good mobile platform, the separate chips mean higher power consumption and thermal output.

The HUAWEI Mate Xs, on the other hand, uses the new Kirin 990 5G mobile SoC, which has a multi-mode 5G modem built in. It also comes with a powerful 16-core ARM Mali-G76 GPU, and a new Da Vinci neural architecture with 2 big NPUs and 1 small NPU.

Improved Cooling

Keeping the Kirin 990 5G cool is a new flexible bionic graphite cooling system that folds with the display, and dissipates heat through both sections. The HUAWEI Mate X does not appear to feature this cooling design.

Improved Falcon Wing Mechanism

While it uses the same foldable design and foldable OLED display, the Falcon Wing mechanism has been improved somewhat in the HUAWEI Mate Xs.

So that’s really all that have changed from the HUAWEI Mate X to the new HUAWEI Mate Xs.

HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G : Why You Should Buy It NOW!

When HUAWEI announced the Mate 30 Pro 5G, people asked – why do we need to buy one when there is limited or no 5G coverage?

Find out who should purchase the Mate 30 Pro 5G, and why you should purchase it NOW.

 

HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G : Who Should Buy One?

First thing we should get across is that not everyone needs a 5G smartphone right now. So who should purchase one, and why right now?

Let’s start with some reasons why the Mate 30 Pro 5G may be the right choice for you :

Reason #1 : Your Ticket To 5G Connectivity Worldwide

If you travel a lot, a 5G smartphone like the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G will allow you to enjoy the best of both established 4G networks and new 5G networks globally.

So far, 47 countries have already commercialised 5G networks, so the Mate30 Pro 5G will let you enjoy the best possible connectivity, whether it’s 5G or 4G.

Reason #2 : Best Possible 5G Connectivity

HUAWEI is the only end-to-end 5G network supplier, delivering everything from the core network to terminal equipment. This is why the 5G networks in most countries are built by HUAWEI, including China, UK, Germany, Italy and Dubai.

Needless to say, they tested the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G extensively against their 5G networks, guaranteeing that it will deliver the best possible 5G connectivity of any 5G smartphone.

Reason #3 : Integrated 5G Baseband + Faster AI Performance

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G is built around the Kirin 990 5G platform, which is different in two aspects from the Kirin 990 platform used in the regular Mate30 Pro (4G) :

  • Integrated 5G baseband with support for SA / NSA modes
  • 3 NPUs (2 big + 1 small), instead of just 2 NPUs (1 big + 1 small)

This should give the 5G model a significant boost in AI performance, in addition to 5G network connectivity.

We should also note that by integrating the 5G baseband into the chip, it will use significantly less power than discrete (separate) 5G chips used in other 5G smartphones.

Reason #4 : All-Aspect Antenna Design

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G uses an all-aspect antenna design. Out of its 21 antennas, 14 are 5G antennas, ensuring a stable 5G connection and eliminating the possibility of a “death grip”.

Thanks to close optimisation with their 5G network equipment, HUAWEI also reports that it not only delivers 50% faster 5G connectivity than competing 5G smartphones, it also consumes less power.

At a recent test in Langkawi, HUAWEI was able to demonstrate a download speed of 1.8 Gbps!

Reason #5 : First SIRIM-Certified 5G Smartphone

While other brands have tried to be the first to introduce 5G smartphones, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G is the first SIRIM-certified 5G smartphone.

Not only is it the first 5G smartphone certified for use in Malaysia, it is certified for use with 5G networks globally.

 

HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G : Our Opinion

Many of us no longer change our smartphones every year, using them for 2.5 years or longer.

[adrotate group=”2″]

While the Mate 30 Pro (4G) is a great smartphone in its own right, the 5G model will keep you future-proofed.

With 5G networks here in Malaysia and around the world coming online this year, opting for the 5G model will mean you don’t have to upgrade your smartphone to enjoy 5G connectivity.

More importantly, it is just slightly more expensive than the 4G model at RM 4,199 (roughly US$1,019 / £776 / A$1,523 / S$1,399).

So the decision for us is really a no-brainer – if you are planning to purchase the HUAWEI Mate30 Pro, it’s really a smarter choice to opt for the 5G model.

 

HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G : Why Buy It Now?

Now, if you like the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G, you should take advantage of their pre-order / early bird offer.

HUAWEI Malaysia is offering this pre-order / early bird special – exclusive gifts worth RM 537 :

  • HUAWEI Wireless In-Car SuperCharge charger

On top of that, these online retailers are offering even sweeter deals for pre-orders / early bird purchases :
