Huawei envisions a Seamless AI Life with a series of smart devices
October 16, 2019

At its Seamless AI Life Strategy Product Briefing session, Huawei envisioned a future where the smartphone would be a single device that connects and enhances your whole environment. The brand focused on how in the all- connected age, Huawei is currently the only vendor that has the ability to provide an all- scenario experience, with an integrated set of capabilities across chips, devices, cloud services, and networks, and is currently the industry’s s only vendor that can provide end-to-end 5G systems. We heard about how the company’s strategy for the hyper connected era is mainly focused on smartphones, wearables, smart homes, Internet of Vehicles, smart office, cloud services and immersion communications.

In line with its global vision, Huawei Consumer Business Group aims to deliver in the Middle East and Africa an intelligent experience to consumers across all scenarios, including smart home, as well as health and fitness.

The strategy consists of primary (smartphones) and secondary portals (tablets, PCs, wearables, speakers, infotainment systems, etc.) and IoT devices (including lighting, security, audio and video, etc.)

At the event, they showcased a series of smart devices:

Huawei Watch GT 2

Available in two sizes of 42mm and 46mm and incorporating the proprietary Kirin AI chip, the Watch GT 2 is Huawei’s first smartwatch with an all-in-one 3D glass screen for a wider and boundless display. In addition to this, the new smartwatches are also capable of features such as Bluetooth calling and music playback. The battery life is a key highlight, as the Watch GT 2 46mm can operate up to two weeks, with both the intelligent heart rate monitor and call notification functions on. Key USP’s include TruRelax technology that reads HRV (heart rate variability) values and provide feedback on the user’s stress index.

FreeBuds 3

The FreeBuds 3 are also the first Open-fit TWS earbuds that both support call noise reduction and accurate real-time active noise cancellation. The FreeBuds 3 case is equipped with wireless charging capabilities and can be charged by both wireless chargers and reverse wireless charged by smartphones that support reverse wireless charging. Thanks to the highly efficient power consumption of the Kirin A1 chip, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 are able to provide four hours of playback from a single charge, and a total of 20 hours when used alongside the charging case. Additionally, the noise reduction algorithm allows FreeBuds 3 to effectively reduce environmental noise, allowing for a high-quality call experience.

Huawei Smart Scale

Capable of reading up to 9 body compositions in 1 detection, the Smart Scale will help you keep track of your weight, body fat percentage, BMR, BMI and even more detailed readings such body water percentage, visceral fat, muscle and bone mass and protein levels. This is possible thanks to the high precision BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) chip, 4 pressure sensors and 360° adjustable scale feet to achieve accurate & convenient measurement.

WiFi Q2 Pro

Housing advanced technology such as Huawei’s Gigahome 5630 gigabit PLC modem chip and the innovative PLC Turbo technology, Huawei promises uninterrupted connectivity all across your home focusing on fast speeds, better connections and lower latency. Apart from increasing network performance, HUAWEI WiFi Q2 Pro can also boost weak signals. As easy as plug and play, the router connects users to the hotspot and frequency band with the strongest signal, while optimizing Wi-Fi channels to ensure strong connections all around the house.
