At the HUAWEI Spring 2022 Smart Office Launch, Huawei Consumer Business Group today announced the launch of seven new products, including: its latest flagship laptop, its first all-in-one PC, a new 2-in-1 laptop, its first E-Ink tablet, a new HarmonyOS tablet, the company’s first-ever printer, and a new portable speaker. These releases were part of a larger plan Huawei announced to create smart offices and fresh experiences for global consumers.
The advanced collaboration and ecosystem capabilities allow users to create a smart office Super Device system. Under this system, users can drag icons from other Huawei devices onto their PC, which will serve as a central hub for a smart office experience featuring device collaboration. These launches bring Huawei one step closer to accomplishing its vision for smart offices, “Boundless Creation and Seamless Communication.”
At the launch event, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, recommitted Huawei to its 5 to 10 year Seamless AI Life strategy aimed at delivering high-end experiences and innovations to global consumers. This strategy focuses on developing collaborative devices for five major scenarios: Health And Fitness, Smart Home, Easy Travel, Smart Office, and Entertainment.
Super Device, Super Creativity: Building a new smart office experience
In his opening remarks, Yu described how Huawei built the Super Device concept it now uses today. In 2018, Huawei pioneered the OneHop feature for connection and file sharing between Huawei phones and PCs. In 2020, it further released a Multi-screen Collaboration feature that allows a phone to be displayed as a window on a connected tablet or PC. Then in 2021, it enabled Huawei PCs, smartphones, tablets, and smart screens to form a Super Device for better collaboration. One device could be connected to another after their icons are dragged together, forming a Super Device system, allowing each device to serve as a functional module so that their capabilities and resources can be shared.
With today’s releases, this powerful feature is now available to Huawei PC users as well for smart office purposes. Users can enjoy an efficient video conference after they connect a PC to a smart screen to form a Super Device. They can open up to three windows of a phone on the PC screen after the two devices are connected for multi-tasking. They can enjoy greater productivity with a Super Device formed by a PC and monitor. Or they can unleash their creativity with a Super Device that is made of a PC, tablet and stylus.
Huawei also launched the Huawei Mobile App Engine, which allows PC users to tap into the rich variety of content in AppGallery for fresh experiences, enriching the PC app ecosystem.
The newly released HUAWEI MateBook X Pro, MateStation X, MateBook E, MatePad Paper, and MatePad all support the Super Device feature. In addition, users of existing models can also experience Super Device[i] features by upgrading their Huawei PC Manager to the latest version. Huawei announced their Mobile App Engine Beta Program[ii] is coming soon and will be accessible by upgrading PC Manager to the latest version.
