Running on EMUI10, HUAWEI Mate Xs supports a smarter and more powerful experience across apps. The foldable screen enables powerful productivity with new features such as Multi-Window and App Multiplier. Developers are welcome to join Huawei in its effort to cultivate the foldable app ecosystem, and together explore the potential of this technology in delivering a better all-scenario experience to consumers.
Rethink Creativity with the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G, tablet with the world’s highest screen-to-body ratio
As an important point-of-entry to the smart ecosystem, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G is designed to synergize with Huawei handsets, wearables and other devices. It serves a key role in the Multi-screen Collaboration feature that delivers a seamless multi-device experience to consumers.
MatePad Pro 5G
The HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G features a 10.8-inch HD display with support for the cinema-grade DCI-P3 colour gamut. With ultra-thin bezels, it has the world’s highest tablet screen-to-body ratio, at 90 percent. Embedded in the body of the lightweight tablet, the Kirin 990 5G SoC supports outstanding 5G connectivity while delivering high performance and power efficiency.
Running EMUI10, the HUAWEI MatePad Pro can be connected to other Huawei smartphones through Multi-Screen Collaboration, a Huawei Share feature. Once a connection is established, users can navigate and control both devices on the tablet’s display.
Multi-screen Collaboration also enables drag-and-drop file transfers between smartphones and tablets. Peripheral sharing lets users type on the smartphone using the tablet’s keyboard and screen, play music saved on the smartphone with the tablet’s speakers and more. HUAWEI MatePad Pro 5G supports Multi-Window for displaying up to three apps simultaneously. App Multiplier splits one app instance into two windows, delivering a revolutionary dual-view experience that makes the most out of the landscape orientation. Huawei 5G products hitting the scene everywhere this year!

Huawei expands service
Huawei expands service ecosystem to deliver a safe and reliable app experience
The HMS ecosystem is another important component of Huawei’s All-Scenario Seamless AI Life strategy.
“To cultivate a fully-fledged ecosystem that will support Huawei devices moving forward, we are gradually opening up our chip-device-cloud capabilities to global developers through HMS. Encompassing all-scenario features, global distribution and lifecycle management capabilities, the HMS ecosystem we envision will be a powerful pillar supporting our devices,” added Yu.
Currently, in its fourth iteration, HMS Core is a collection of tools made for Huawei’s partners and app developers to create unique, new experiences that tap into the full hardware and software capabilities Huawei devices have on offer. By integrating HMS into their apps with HMS Core 4.0, developers can quickly deploy Huawei’s on-device capabilities such as HiAI, distributed technology and camera features on their apps and provide quality experiences to end-users.
For instance, Cewe, one of Europe’s most renowned photo printing companies, has deployed Huawei Share to streamline the device pairing process in its offices. The intuitive printing process facilitates quicker production by requiring only a simple tap for Cewe staff to connect a Huawei device with a printer.
HUAWEI AppGallery launched
HUAWEI AppGallery launched in beta mode in Canada. Canadian Huawei tech enthusiasts can download it here: HUAWEI-AppGallery.
First launched in 2011, HUAWEI AppGallery is currently one of the top three global app marketplaces. Aside from quality apps, HUAWEI AppGallery also offers Quick Apps, an innovative category of apps made for devices in the 5G era.
