Huawei Mate50 successfully implemented the world’s first satellite communication function for smartphones. This feature allows emergency communication through a direct connection to the Beidou satellite when the phone has no signal, and can simply send some text messages, which will also come with the precise coordinates of your location, and you can check the corresponding location on the map by clicking the location link.
However, it should be noted that the Huawei Mate50 can only support one-way satellite communication, which means that it can only send but not receive.
After the launch, a large number of netizens also have very big questions about this feature, which can be said to be a life-saving feature, but can not accept the message is not able to confirm the success of sending.
In this regard, the vice president of Huawei’s cell phone product line, Bruce Lee, responded publicly today.
According to him, the message list interface of Huawei Mate50 can show whether the satellite acknowledgement is received, if it shows that the satellite acknowledgement is received, then it means that it has been sent successfully.
If it does not show the receipt of satellite acknowledgement, it also means that it has not been sent successfully.
He also showed screenshots of his attempts to send, the last two of which were on the plane and should have been sent unsuccessfully because of the fast-moving speed.
It is worth mentioning that the new iPhone 14 series just released today also supports satellite communication, but it supports two-way communication, can send and receive, but also can only send text messages.
This feature of iPhone 14 will be online in November, the first batch only supports the United States, and Canada, the two countries, that are expected to support the national line will not.
