It is not yet clear if Google can use Google's Android operating system in its future devices, with Huawei focusing on the growing anomaly and sound segment, where Apple is a clear leader. At a press briefing today, the Chinese tech giant said it wanted to launch a new product portfolio powered by the new Huawei Kirin A1 chipset.
First released at IFA 2019, the Kirin A1 is a dedicated chipset designed for carrying carriers and speakers. The mobile processor is even smaller than the Apple H1, and when it comes to performance, the Kirin A1 chipset promises 50% less power consumption and 30% less latency than previous versions. It boasts the latest Bluetooth Low Power 5.1 as well as Bluetooth 5.1 for wider bandwidth and solid connections.
While the company has not confirmed which Kirin A1-powered products will first hit the retail shelves, it is expected that both Fribus 3 and Guar GT2 will eventually arrive in India. Of these, FreeBuds 3 is an alternative to Apple AirPods Pro. True wireless ear features adapts to noise cancellation, fast charging technology, four hours of battery life and an additional 20 hours with the included case.
Huawei could soon gain access to Google Play Store as US could allow licenses
The Huawei Watch GT 2, on the other hand, is a smart watch that competes with the Apple Watch Series 5 and Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2. Available in two sizes, the watch has a curved glass case with a 1.39-inch AMOLED display. Like the previous generation Watch GT, the Watch GT 2 uses Huawei's proprietary operating system, not Google's WearOS. The Watch GT 2 is basically geared towards fitness and wellness. It can track 15 different sports, including running, hiking, climbing, hiking, running, cycling and triathlon, among others.
Huawei has already announced the next generation of the Kirin 990 mobile chipset, but there is uncertainty about the future of India's smartphone plans, which is the world's second-largest smartphone market. As a result of a trade ban enacted by US President Donald Trump earlier this year, Huawei has delayed the launch of its flagship Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro in India. Both phones do not work with Android OS due to a trade ban. Instead, they come with something called Huawei AppGallery and work on EMUI 10 and the Open Source Android Project (AOSP).
