Huawei’s product launch event on March 23 will see it unveil the new Watch Ultimate, which will feature satellite communication technology allowing users to stay connected even with no terrestrial phone signal, according to a Weibo post from Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group. Billed as the first smartwatch with satellite SMS technology in the industry, it will allow users to send an SMS over satellite connectivity when the native LTE network isn’t available. Industry observers expect satellite communication technology to become a standard feature of flagship mobile phones in 2023 and 2024. [Chinastarmaket, in Chinese]
