With endless possibilities come endless tech innovations! The recently concluded Huawei Flagship Product Launch 2022 just proved that Huawei still has a lot of techy tricks up their sleeves: A brand-new flagship foldable smartphone, a really pretty ceramic smartwatch, and leveled-up fitness bands, to name a few. Two out of the many cutting-edge hardware products are also set to be released this month, starting with the Huawei GT3 Pro this May 30 and the Huawei Watch Fit 2 on May 27.
In case you missed the livestreamed event, here’s a quick look at the upcoming devices:
Huawei Mate Xs 2
The Huawei Mate Xs 2 is Huawe’s brand-new flagship foldable smartphone with a weight of only 255g and a thickness of only 5.4mm. It features a first-ever 3D Fibreglass Design to achieve a fusion of aesthetic colors and textures. To achieve an ultra-flat surface which is minimalistic and natural, the phone uses a Falcon Wing Design, enabling synchronized movement of the hinge and screen via a fixed-length linkage control. For the phone’s screen, the use of HUAWEI’s self-developed innovative industry-first composite screen to absorb all shock and buffer makes the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 ultra-reliable.
To further enhance user-quality, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is equipped with HUAWEI flagship products such as a 7.8-inch True-Chroma foldable display to deliver high resolution content, Silicon-Based Anode battery for higher density and larger capacity, 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge that allows a 90% charge within 30minutes, and an Anti-Reflective Nano Optical layer to help reduce glare.
Huawei Watch GT3 Pro
The Huawei Watch GT3 Pro, which will soon be available in Titanium (46mm) and Ceramic (43mm) editions, comes with a new interface design, premium materials, an ultra-clear large screen, and a range of watch faces to choose from. The latest flagship smartwatch makes it easy to support a healthy lifestyle, with over 100 workout modes paired with an AI Running Coach and an ECG analysis and TruSeen 5.0+ data monitoring technology, allowing for accurate heart measurement and blood oxygen monitoring.
With a 1.43-inch AMOLED high-definition colour display, displaying 466 x 466 high-definition resolution, the watch produces clear and precise information on screen.

Equipped with AMOLED display consisting of a screen-to-body ratio of 64.88% and 194 x 368 resolution bringing vivid content and visuals.

The best part for me? On top of the 97 workout modes and animated fitness coach, the Huawei Watch Fit 2 now comes with a speaker and microphone. Calls can be pushed from users’ smartphone to their smartwatch via Bluetooth, so they can chat on the go, wherever they are. Users can answer and hang up calls with ease by tapping on the smartwatch’s button and add frequently used contacts in the HUAWEI Heath App. With Harmony OS third-party-app support, WhatsApp users can access quick reply message templates on their watches while on the go.
