But instead of the technical sides of the phones, let’s take a look at how the smartphones can be helpful in our everyday life!
1. Calorie Counter
Nowadays, a lot of people are trying to watch their weight by controlling the food they consumed. So with Huawei Mate 20’s built-in HiVision calorie calculator called the AI Calorie counter, users can now scan a food item with the camera to get a calorie reading. All they need to do is simply point their camera at the food using the HiVision feature and they will get an estimated calorie count of the food they’re eating. The app is applicable to around 100 types of food at the moment.
2. Real-time Translator
If you’re used to typing or copy-and-pasting foreign texts to Google Translate to get the translations, now there’s an easier and quicker way to do that with Huawei Mate 20 series’ HiVision Translate. Huawei’s AI-enabled camera is able to translate text on physical items such as menus or signs in real-time. Users simply need to point their camera at a foreign text and get real-time translation on the spot. The feature only work in portrait mode and it currently supports 10 languages; Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, French, Russian, Italian, German and Portuguese.
3. Object Identification
Using the same AI feature for calorie counting, Huawei’s HiVision Identify can scan and identify different objects from plants to animals, cars, arts and even landmarks. The feature is able to identify over 1,500 scenes from 25 categories, 3 times more than the older models. Even if you the object you scan maybe outside of the categories, the feature will usually direct you to the closest image of the item using Microsoft. So this feature is pretty much like Google Search but much more convenient and simpler.
4. Dual-frequency GPS
Huawei Mate 20 Series supports dual-band (L1+L5) GPS positioning technology. The AI GPS Satellite Selection technology enhances the positioning accuracy across a wide range of scenarios. So even if you drove into a tunnel, got lost in a cave or got stranded in the middle of a forest, you will still have your GPS connection as Huawei Mate 20 supports the world’s fastest Wi-Fi connection speeds of up to 1.4Gbps. With such feature, you only need 10 seconds to download a 2GB footage.
5. Share Battery Power
Next time, if your friend forgot to bring their charger or power bank, you can just borrow them your Huawei Mate 20. Because the new Huawei series can work as a power bank where it is capable of sharing battery power wirelessly with its Wireless Reverse Charge feature. This means that you can use the your phone to charge other devices that support Qi wireless charging even its its rivals iPhones, Samsung Galaxies, and any other wireless-charging capable devices.
6. AI Shopping
Shopping becomes so much easier and faster with Huawei Mate 20 Series’ HiVision Shopping. With the feature, users simply need to tap on “Shopping” and point your camera at the item you desire until HiVision identifies it. Your smartphone will then show you a variety of similar products based on what it recognises and also the online resources of where you can buy it from, and how much the item costs. You may not get the exact results you want from the AI recognition, but it will give you a list of similar items.
