Obviously, most Chinese electronics manufacturers have passed the recession that was caused by the coronavirus pandemic. This is evidenced not only by the statistics of sales of their products, which are gradually approaching the figures of the pre-crisis period. Companies from the Middle Kingdom are increasing the pace of production, bringing a lot of new products to the market. All of the above fully applies to HUAWEI. It regularly updates its product range and develops new devices. Let's talk about one recently announced smartphone from the company. We will also discuss information about new platforms that the Chinese intend to use in their products.
HUAWEI Enjoy Z gets 90Hz screen and 5G modem
Young fans of the HUAWEI brand should like the new HUAWEI Enjoy Z smartphone. This is the opinion of the developer's experts who have created the device for a certain age category.
The device has the most affordable price among the counterparts of the company with 5G modems. It also has a screen that supports a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a MediaTek processor. The Chinese refused from the Kirin chip, which are traditionally installed in smartphones of this company.
HUAWEI Enjoy Z received a 6.5-inch display with a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels and a sensor sampling rate of 180 Hz. A 16 Mp front camera was placed in its upper part, giving the cutout a teardrop shape.
The core of the hardware stuffing of the product is the MediaTek Dimensity 800 processor (4 x Cortex-A76 + 4 x Cortex-A55) with a clock frequency of 2.0 GHz. He is assisted in his work by 6/8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. The capacity of the built-in UFS 2.1 storage can be 64 or 128 GB. It can be extended by using a NanoMemory standard card.
The smartphone is controlled via the Android 10 operating system with the proprietary EMUI 10.1 shell.
The main camera has three sensors: the main one is 48 megapixels, an 8 megapixel wide-angle lens and a macro lens with a resolution of 2 megapixels. The unit received electronic image stabilization (EIS), 10x digital zoom and night mode.
The autonomy of the HUAWEI Enjoy Z is provided by a 4000 mAh battery, which supports fast charging up to 22.5 W.
The device also has a hybrid slot for two SIM cards, Bluetooth 5 modules and Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz). There is a USB Type-C port, music lovers will appreciate the 3.5mm audio jack.
Weighing 182 grams, the device has the following geometric parameters: 160 x 75.32 x 8.35 mm.
Shortly before the presentation, HUAWEI Enjoy Z was tested in the popular AnTuTu benchmark. There he reached a level corresponding to 316 328 points. At the same time, the efficiency of its CPU was estimated at 101,812 points. The Mali-G57 graphics chip scored 90,692, while the UFS 2.1 storage (128GB) and GUI scores 69,703 and 54,121 points, respectively.
HUAWEI Enjoy Z 5G case will receive several color options: black, blue and pink. The modification with 6/64 GB of memory will cost $ 238, the version with 6/128 GB will cost customers $ 266, and the older version 8/128 GB will cost $ 308. Sales of new items in China will begin next week, June 1st.
HUAWEI will use MediaTek chipsets
Honor, a subsidiary of HUAWEI, regularly equips its mobile devices with the HiSilicon Kirin chipset. A trade war continues between HUAWEI and the US government. Kirin processors are in a "war zone".
Prior to that, the company installed Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. The company's specialists paid attention to HiSilicon Kirin products not so long ago, after they began to meet all the company's expectations.
At this time, the future of Kirin is vague, the Chinese have not been working with Qualcomm for a long time, as they are under sanctions. Therefore, until everything is decided, HUAWEI decided to use MediaTek chips in the technical stuffing of their products. This was recently officially announced.
If this really happens, then it will be a big plus for MediaTek. The company is now actively promoting its new 5G-enabled Dimensity line.
First of all, we are talking about Honor products. The presence of such a solid client for MediaTek will raise the prestige of this manufacturer and expand the geography of supplies.
The first step on this path has already been taken: the Huawei Enjoy Z smartphone received a MediaTek Dimensity 800 processor. Time will tell what will happen next.
Smart Glasses Chipset
HUAWEI continues to develop its own chipsets. So far, some progress has been made only in the creation of chips for devices with augmented reality functions.
The new HiSilicon XR platform is planned to be installed in Rokid Vision AR glasses. The device will receive two displays with a viewing angle of more than 40 ° and the same number of speakers providing surround sound.
The developers claim that the gadget will be able to provide the user with an immersive experience equivalent to watching a 110-inch 3D TV located 4 meters from the owner.
The new processor integrates graphics and neural processors (GPU and NPU), which will allow the use of devices based on it in the field of security. Products will be able to recognize faces and license plates.
It is assumed that Rokid Vision will be in demand in many areas of human activity, including medicine, education and trade.
When AR-glasses will go on sale and at what prices it is not yet known.
