Huawei Launched The Mate 60 Pro Plus 5G with up to 1TB of Storage

After the Mate 60 and Mate 60 Pro, Huawei has now launched the Mate 60 Pro Plus

The third and perhaps most costly model in the Mate 60 series, Huawei Launched the Mate 60 Pro Plus 5G in China, less than a week after revealing the Huawei Mate 60 and Mate 60 Pro, its first 5G phone in three years. The Mate 60 Pro and Mate 60 Pro Plus are similar in appearance, but Huawei has given the latter a bigger display, more RAM, and better cameras.

After the Mate 60 and Mate 60 Pro, Huawei has now launched the Mate 60 Pro Plus, which is most likely the top model in the Mate 60 series. Contrary to initial assumptions, the Mate 60 Pro Plus’s big display does not have four-punch hole cuts. Instead, a 6.82-inch LTPO OLED display with three cutouts gives the Mate 60 Pro Plus and Mate 60 Pro the same appearance from the front.

Having said that, the Mate 60 Pro Plus outputs content at a native resolution of 2,720 x 1,260 pixels as opposed to the Mate 60 Pro’s 2,616 x 1,212 pixels. As a result, the Mate 60 Pro Plus sports a higher pixel-dense display than the Mate 60 Pro, with a 440 PPI pixel density as opposed to the Mate 60 Pro’s 423 PPI. The Mate 60 Pro Plus will most likely use a little bit more power than the Mate 60 Pro because Huawei uses the same Kirin 9000S CPU and 5,000 mAh battery as the Mate 60 Pro, despite the higher-resolution display.

Furthermore, Huawei only provides 512 GB, or 1 TB, of storage and 16 GB of RAM for the Mate 60 Pro Plus. The Mate 60 Pro, in contrast, has a maximum of 12 GB of RAM and the same amount of storage. Additionally, the Mate 60 Pro Plus boasts an improved camera system, although it has the same 48 MP telephoto and 13 MP front-facing cameras as the Mate 60 Pro. In contrast to the Mate 60 Pro’s 50 MP primary and 12 MP ultra-wide-angle cameras, Huawei’s Mate 60 Pro Plus has 48 MP primary and 40 MP ultra-wide-angle sensors.

On October 9th, the Mate 60 Pro+ will be released.

Huawei also stated that pre-orders are now being accepted for the October 9th release of the smartphone. The Mate 60 Pro and Mate 60 Pro Plus connect to two satellites simultaneously, allowing users who are in a location without cellular service to use satellites to make calls and send texts. The company has not yet disclosed the price of the Mate 60 Pro Plus, which also applies to the Mate X5. However, it is rumoured that Huawei’s top-tier Mate 60 series handset could retail for up to CNY 8,999 ($1,228). Nevertheless, it has already stated that the Mate 60 Pro will continue to be a Chinese-exclusive product.

 

The Mate 60 series is attracting interest due to its built-in Kirin 5G chipset, which was created by SMIC, the biggest foundry in China, utilizing its 7nm production node. Due to United States regulations preventing Huawei from accessing cutting-edge processors, the chip is under investigation in the US.

 

The Mate 50 line of smartphones from a year ago and the P60 devices from this year were powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipsets. Due to U.S. limitations, the chips were modified to prevent them from functioning with 5G networks. Due to Huawei’s innovative chipset, the Mate 60 Pro and Mate 60 Pro Plus do not require the third-party cases that were required for the Mate 50 Pro and the P60 range to enjoy 5G.

Even while the Kirin 9000s is a ground-breaking chip for Huawei, it is important to note that it is still a few generations behind the chipsets being produced by leading foundries like TSMC and Samsung Foundry. The Kirin 9000s is built by SMIC using a 7nm process node, whereas the A17 Bionic for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max is manufactured by TSMC utilizing a 3nm process node. As a result of this, the A17 Bionic will have more transistors than the new Kirin chipset, making it stronger and more energy-efficient.

For instance, TSMC’s improved 7nm node was used to manufacture the A13 Bionic SoC, which in 2019 powered the iPhone 11 series and has 8.5 billion transistors. With roughly 16 billion transistors, the TSMC 4nm node-produced A16 Bionic SoC is found inside the iPhone 14 series. That could provide a fast and dirty comparison of the Kirin 9000s and the processor powering the iPhone 14 Pro series.

According to Reuters, Chinese social media users are posting speed tests that demonstrate the Mate 60 Pro can deliver 5G download data speeds that are faster than those of the best 5G handsets. Dan Hutcheson, a TechInsights analyst, called it a “slap in the face” to the United States as this was happening at the same time that the United States was limiting Huawei’s access to chips.

The United States government claims that it is curious to learn how Huawei got through the export restriction that forbids foundries that use American technology to make chips from exporting any chips to the producer. Other U.S. restrictions compelled Huawei to create its own HarmonyOS operating system in place of the Android version offered by Google Mobile Services. The most recent version of the operating system, HarmonyOS 4, is already pre-installed on the Mate 60, Mate 60 Pro, Mate 60 Pro Plus, and Mate X5

Google’s Update to “Quick Share” Improves Usability

Published

on

By

In a recent CES announcement, Google disclosed its collaboration with Samsung to extend Quick Share compatibility to all Android phones. Although Samsung’s Quick Share has coexisted with Google’s Nearby Share on Galaxy devices, the two services are now interoperable. The integration eliminates the need for Samsung users to choose between two separate file-sharing services. Google’s update of the Nearby Share branding to align with Samsung’s enhances the cohesion of the file-sharing experience between Galaxy and non-Galaxy devices. It’s important to note that not all functionalities have been retained in the rebranding process.

As Google began the rollout of Quick Share to non-Galaxy devices today, users observed that the enhanced experience lacks certain features present in Quick Share on Samsung devices. Notably, functionalities such as creating a temporary link for file sharing (link sharing) and temporarily sharing encrypted files (private sharing) are unavailable in the updated version.

An included feature in Google’s version of Quick Share, borrowed from Quick Share on Samsung devices, is the capability to display available devices directly in the share sheet. This functionality ensures that nearby Quick Share targets are visible within the share sheet, eliminating the need to tap the Quick Share button to access the full interface when sharing files with your own devices.

The alteration simplifies the process of file sharing across your devices. While Google has been working on integrating Nearby Share targets into the share sheet since last year, the introduction of Quick Share on Android marks the official rollout of this feature. Although observed on devices like the Google Pixel 7 Pro, Google Pixel 8 Pro, and OnePlus 11, some users have reported not seeing Quick Share targets in their share sheets. This change may be associated with a server-side flag independent of the Quick Share rollout, so users are advised to watch for Quick Share devices appearing in Android’s share sheet.

Google lauches “Circle to Search”

Published

By

Today, Google has globally launched the Circle to Search feature on the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy S24 series. This recently unveiled feature enables users to perform searches anywhere on their phones through gestures such as circling, highlighting, scribbling, or tapping.

The technology company sees the new feature as an effort to seamlessly integrate Google Search into everyday moments. Whether you’re watching a video or browsing images on a social app, the goal is to make it easier to pose spontaneous questions. As an illustration, while watching a video of someone enjoying a Korean corn dog, you can circle the corn dog and inquire, “Why are these so popular?”

The feature extends beyond circles to include various gestures. For instance, while conversing in a messaging app about a restaurant with a friend, you can effortlessly tap on the restaurant’s name to access additional details without exiting the app.

Circle to Search simplifies the process of looking up definitions for words or phrases. Imagine watching a video with a drink labeled “prebiotic,” and you’re unsure of its meaning compared to “probiotic.” Previously, you’d have to switch to your browser to search. Now, you can activate Circle to Search by long-pressing the home button or navigation bar, highlight “prebiotic,” learn more, and seamlessly resume the video with a swipe.

Circle to Search allows you to initiate searches from any app, eliminating the need to pause your current task and open a browser for a search. Additionally, if you typically take screenshots as reminders to search later, this is no longer necessary; you can search immediately without disrupting your ongoing activities.

On January 31, Circle to Search will debut on the recently unveiled Galaxy S24 Series smartphones at the Samsung event. Additionally, it will be accessible on premium Android devices like the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, supporting all languages and locations where these phones are sold. Google anticipates expanding support to more Android smartphones over time.

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Flip6 is set to tackle battery life concerns by featuring a larger 4,000 mAh battery, addressing the criticisms of the smaller cells in previous Flip models like the Galaxy Z Flip5, which had a 3,700 mAh battery. While still smaller than some competitors, such as Oppo’s Find N3 Flip with a 4,300 mAh battery, the 4,000 mAh in the Flip6 represents about an 8% increase from the Flip 5. The Flip6 will maintain a dual-cell configuration, with one cell rated at 1,097 mAh and the other at 2,790 mAh, totaling a 3,887 mAh rated capacity, likely resulting in a 4,000 mAh typical capacity. Additional rumored upgrades include a larger 3.9″ cover display (up from 3.4″ in the Flip5) and a significant camera improvement with a 50 MP main camera compared to the 12 MP in the Flip5. The Galaxy Z Flip6 is expected to be officially announced in the middle of this year.
