GUANGZHOU, China — Huawei launched a foldable smartphone on Monday as it faces questions over the future of its handset business that has been hurt by a number of U.S. sanctions.

华为于周一,在广州发布了一款可折叠智能手机,而其手机业务的未来正在遭受来自美国一系列制裁而备受质疑。

The Huawei Mate X2 launch highlights Huawei's continued push into the high-end smartphone space.

华为Mate X2的发布表明了华为继续推动高端智能机领域的决心。

Some of Mate X2's key features include:

华为Mate X2的主要特色在于:

  • An exterior and interior screen that is presented when the phone is unfolded. The exterior display is 6.45-inch and the interior display is 8-inch.
  • A rear camera set up with 4 sensors for zooming and depth.
  • The processor is the Kirin 9000, Huawei's proprietary chip.
  • It will be one of the first Huawei phones able to run its own HarmonyOS mobile operating system.
  • 手机展开同时显示的内外屏幕。 外部显示屏为6.45英寸,内部显示屏为8英寸。 
  • 后置摄像头配有4个用于缩放和深度感应器。
  • 处理器是华为专有芯片麒麟9000。 
  • 这将是首批能够运行华为自主研发的鸿蒙系统的华为手机之一。

The 256GB version will be priced at 17,999 yuan ($2,785) while the 512GB model will start at 18,999 yuan. It will be on sale in China from Feb. 25. Huawei did not say if it will be available in international markets.

256GB版本的价格为17999元人民币(折合2785美元),而512GB版本的价格为18999元人民币。 它将于2月25日在中国开始销售。华为并未透露是否会在国际市场上进行销售。

Huawei continues to feel the pressure from U.S. sanctions enacted by the Trump administration which has damaged its smartphone business, in particular outside of China.

华为一直承受着特朗普政府实施的美国制裁的压力,这已经损害了其智能手机业务,特别是在中国境外。

The Chinese firm shipped 32 million smartphones in the fourth quarter on 2020, down nearly 43% from last year and making it the sixth-biggest phone vendor by market share, according to Canalys. It's the first time Huawei has slipped out of the top five in six years, Canalys said.

根据Canalys显示的数据,华为在2020年第四季度共计出货3200万部智能手机,比去年下降了近43%,使其成为市场份额排名第六的手机供应商。 Canalys说,这是华为六年来首次跌出该榜单的前五名。

Mate X2 production

Mate X2的生产

Last year, the Trump administration moved to cut Huawei's access to chip supplies. Huawei designs its own range of chips called Kirin which are manufactured by Taiwan's TSMC. In May, the U.S. introduced a rule which requires foreign manufacturers using American chipmaking equipment to get a license before they're able to sell semiconductors to Huawei. 

去年,特朗普政府切断了华为的芯片供应。 华为设计了自己的一系列芯片,名为麒麟,由台湾/台积电生产。 美国在5月推出了一项规定,要求使用美国芯片制造设备的外国制造商必须先获得许可证,然后才能向华为出售半导体。

Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer and cloud and artificial intelligence businesses, warned that Huawei could run out of chips.

华为消费者业务,云端及人工智能业务负责人余承东警告华为芯片库存告急。

But the Mate X2 uses Huawei's Kirin 9000 processor which was launched last year and Yu said the company has enough production capacity for the foldable phone.

但是Mate X2使用的是去年推出的华为麒麟9000处理器,余承东表示华为有足够的产能来生产可折叠手机。

HarmonyOS

In 2019, Huawei was put on a U.S. blacklist called the Entity List which restricted American firms from exporting technology to the Chinese company. One of the biggest blows to Huawei was being cut off from Google’s Android operating system. That’s not a big deal in China where Google services are blocked. But it is important for international customers and was one factor behind weakening international sales. 

In response, Huawei launched its own mobile operating system called HarmonyOS. The company launched a second version of HarmonyOS last year and said it would come to phones in 2021. 

On Monday, Yu said that Huawei users could begin upgrading their phones to HarmonyOS from April, with the Mate X2 being one of the first phones eligible. Huawei has been courting developers to build apps for its operating system.

鸿蒙系统

在2019年,华为被列入美国黑名单(实体名单),该名单限制美国公司向中国公司出口技术。 华为遭受的最大的打击之一是被切断了谷歌的安卓操作系统。在中国禁用谷歌服务的地区,这没什么大不了的。 但这对国际客户而言很重要,并且是其国际销售量下滑的因素之一。 

对此,华为发布了自己的移动操作系统鸿蒙系统。 该公司去年发布了第二版鸿蒙操作系统,并表示将在2021年应用于手机。

余承东在周一的发布会上表示,华为用户4月开始将可以将其手机系统升级为鸿蒙系统,Mate X2是首批符合条件的手机之一。 华为一直在吸纳开发人员为其操作系统构建应用程序。
