Huawei might be working on advanced cases with gaming and health functionality
Huawei might have its problems, but it definitely isn’t ready to throw in the towel. In fact, the company continues to work on delivering impressive devices with interesting features and functionalities. According to the latest rumors, the Shenzen-based smartphone manufacturer is working on advanced cases which are similar to the Moto Mod ones, that offer, among other things, gaming and health functionalities. Of course, Huawei doesn’t simply copy the Moto Mod cases, instead, it turns it into their own, with some new features, like new connectivity types, and new functionalities, we’ve never seen before with the Motorola devices.
First of all, it seems that instead of relying on pins, as Motorola did with its Moto Mod devices, the Chinese company chose to connect the cases wirelessly, via Bluetooth. As a matter of fact, the information turned up as a Bluetooth SIG filing, which lists quite a large number of different cases. Some of them are game cases, others are snorkeling cases, health cases, and amplification cases. While it’s really easy to imagine what the game cases will work like and what they will be used for, the health and amplification cases are quite a novelty, at least for the Chinese company. The company already showed off snorkeling cases for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and P30 Pro, which basically ensure more efficient waterproofing.
It seems that sometime in the near future Huawei is planning on launching a new game case that will allow users to benefit from extra gaming modes and features. As for the health case, it will most likely offer several extra health sensors, which will probably be more accurate than the ones already present in smartphones. We could expect accurate heart rate sensors, possibly even blood oxygen level meters and more. It’s not quite clear yet just how they will work, but they do sound interesting enough. The amplifier case will most likely house a more powerful speaker than the ones we are used to seeing in smartphones.
As the cases are listed beside different codenames, such as Anna, Elsa, Noah, Sulawesi, and more, it’s safe to assume that they will be supported by different smartphone models. There are 39 codenames on the list, so we could be expecting as many new smartphone models that offer support for the advanced cases. Also, it is possible that they won’t all be smartphones, they could be other gadgets too. Since the filing is already made, it’s safe to assume that we won’t have to wait for too long before seeing what Huawei is preparing for us.
