China’s telecommunication giant Huawei on Thursday said the next generation mobile phone called “superphone” will come out around 2020 and open up a new era by transforming perceptions with its enhanced intelligence.
Shao Yang, President of Strategy Marketing, Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG), shared Huawei’s vision of how the “superphone” will take mankind closer to a world where the physical and digital realities will be further integrated. The advent of the “superphone” will eventually build a new world of all things digital, all things connected, seamless intelligence integration and merging intelligence, Shao said at the Huawei Innovation Day Asia. “Through evolution and adaptation, the ‘superphone’ will be more intelligent, enhancing and even transforming our perceptions, enabling humans to go further than ever before,” state-run Xinhua news agency quoted him as saying.
Shao said with the evolvement and adaptation of the “superphone”, the physical world will be reconstructed through digitalisation. To embrace this new era, Huawei has entered into a number of strategic partnerships with major automobile brands, including Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and Audi, and has been pursuing the development of cloud services.
The company has also established a partnership with the University of Manchester to explore ways of using graphene’s applications in consumer electronics and mobile communication devices.
