KUWAIT: Gone are the days where we actually have to touch our phones’ screen to get things done. We now live in an era where we can control our phones with mere air-gestures. Having said so, Huawei’s latest flagship, the Huawei Mate 40 depicts these voguish present-day Innovative and Intelligent Interactions in a powerful and futuristic smartphone.

The latest iteration from the flagship Huawei Mate Series comes with EMUI 11, which is loaded with an all-new user experience. Let us take the Smart Gesture Controls as an example, Huawei Mate 40 Pro features new and fun ways for you to interact with your phone.

  1. Hover to wake: With Smart Gesture Control, you can wake up your phone by hovering an open palm above the screen. When it is used in tandem with 3D Face Unlock, you can unlock the device without touching the device at all.
  2. Wave to swipe: You can wave vertically and horizontally to scroll the screen and go forward or backward. This feature now works with various eBook, photo gallery, music and news apps as well.
  3. Press to answer calls: You can answer incoming calls with a pressing gesture – perfect for when their hands are dirty or occupied.
  4. Other gesture control options: Smart Gesture Control adds new support for audio and video playback control. When the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is playing music, you can pause the audio by doing a pressing gesture.

With the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, multitasking has been taken to a whole new level, thanks to the improved Multi-Screen Collaboration feature. Multi-screen Collaboration fundamentally transforms how work can be done. Virtual meetings are now more like a face-to-face meeting. You can use your smartphone as a digital notepad for jotting down notes for creative inspiration.

In addition, when you need to present content on your phone screen to others, all it takes is just one tap to initiate screen projection. Other improvements made to Multi-screen Collaboration bring your smartphone even closer to your PC. Multi-tasking is now better, with support for up to three concurrent active apps, so you do not have to flip between screens to access different apps.
