Would the Huawei Mate 50 be able to send messages by satellite, like the iPhone 13?

The Huawei Mate 50, the future flagship of the disgraced Chinese brand, would be able to send short messages by connecting to the Beidou satellite network. This feature is similar to an option that would be integrated into future iPhones. We take stock of the rumors.

According to our colleagues from Huawei Central, the Huawei Mate 50 will be able tosend short messages by connecting to a satellite. Citing information from a Chinese leaker active on Sina Weibo, the media outlet claims that Huawei will rely on Beidou Satellite Navigation System, a satellite communication system.

Deployed by China, Beidu is a network ofaround thirty satellites scattered around the earth. On the Huawei P40s, the Chinese brand is already using Beidu’s satellites to offer precise real-time navigation, rapid positioning and efficient scheduling. Note that the system also allows the sending of emergency messages to help in China.

The launch of the Mate 50 is postponed to 2022

This hallway noise follows a rumor claiming that the iPhone 13s will be able to make calls and send messages through a satellite connection. According to analyst Ming Chi Kuo, this feature makes it possible to communicate when there is no cellular connection. Other reputable sources, including Bloomberg, believe the option will be reserved for emergency messages. The media claim that the feature will not be launched on the iPhone 13. It could wait until next year and the future iPhone 14.

Also according to Huawei Central, the launch of the Mate 50 range has been postponed to the second quarter of 2022. Cornered by US sanctions, the Chinese giant would have made the decision to present the smartphones next year rather than in the fall of 2021, as is traditionally the case. Unsurprisingly, the restrictions are forcing Huawei to shake up its schedule.

Nevertheless, Huawei would have already developed a working prototype of the Mate 50, Huawei Central advance. Unlike the P50s announced in July, future smartphones would be compatible with 5G networks. Deprived of Kirin chips, Huawei would fall back on a Snapdragon SM8450 + SoC, a new generation of Qualcomm chipset engraved in 4nm.
