On 24 February Huawei unveiled a new generation of Mate Xs 5G and Wi-Fi 6 products, while bringing in the market for HMS Core and applications 。
Among them, HMS core 4.0 has been released in January this year, and a large number of new functions have been launched, including Huawei account, payment, analysis, cloud space and game services that have been operated for many years, and advertising and positioning services that have been online for four months.
In addition, HMS core 4.0 has also added a large number of new capabilities that developers have been looking forward to, including machine learning service, situational awareness service, unified code scanning service, short distance communication service, panoramic service, security detection service, dynamic label manager service, online fast authentication service, location service, fast application service, digital copyright service, sports health service, user identity service, etc Many of these services also support the integration of Huawei's core end cloud capabilities.
What is HMS capabilities? What kind of development environment does it provide for developers and what does it bring to users?
On February 28, Huawei's emui officially brought interpretation.
HMS Capabilities is a collection of Huawei terminal software open capabilities Kit, providing leading hardware capabilities (such as Camera, NPU) and distributed collaborative open capabilities for full-time 18N devices, including Camera Kit, HiAI and connectivity (device virtualization, sharing, touching)
To give some examples: pick up the phone and touch the TV remote control, the game on the phone quickly hit the big screen; the phone touch the speaker, the game sound out of it; touch the game handle, you can enjoy the peripherals
One touch is Huawei's onehop kit capability, while the mobile phone's easy access to TV's display capability and speaker's external playback capability is the evidence of the virtualization of hardware equipment capability.
In addition to entertainment, including work, live broadcast, photography, etc., HMS capabilities are everywhere.
Huawei's official example of emui: in the past, if you want to print out the photos in your mobile phone, you need to connect the computer with USB cable, select the three steps of photo import computer - select Print - take out, and the whole process will be smooth for several minutes, but if your mobile phone can directly connect to the printer and print with one button, the operation time will be greatly reduced to a few seconds.
Huawei cooperates with cewe, a European photo printing company,You don't need a wired connection to print a photo, , transmission and printing, which uses Huawei's share kit and onehop kit capabilities.
Huawei, together with the famous sports camera driver, has realized:You can use the sports camera on the helmet or the skateboard directly during the live broadcast, just as it is convenient to use the front and back camera of the mobile phone。 The device virtualization kit can realize the virtualization of camera, display, microphone and speaker, and operate the external hardware like the local hardware.
The native camera of mobile phone is generally more powerful and full-featured than the camera of the third-party app. If we can call the native camera when we use the third-party camera application, it will improve the possibility of film formation。 The three-way camera app that integrates Huawei CameraKit has been launched, such as the original Huawei phone
The implementation of the above scenarios is based on the HMS capabilities of software, which is used by hardware developers to virtualize their products into peripherals of Huawei mobile phones. Application developers can integrate it and call the terminal's leading hardware capabilities (such as camera and NPU).
Huawei's emui says:We all hope to have a good friend like Ding Dong around us, who can take out the most appropriate tools to help us overcome difficulties when we need help. The progress of science and technology makes this dream come true. Now more and more developers join us to gain Huawei's powerful end-to-side technical capabilities by adding HMS capabilities, and jointly create our own tinker。
