At the press conference, Huawei used a P10 mobile phone equipped with UFS2.1 flash memory to promote the mobile phone and tested it on the spot. Afterwards, some users found that the flash memory speeds of different mobile phones of Huawei P10 were very different. It was suspected that eMMC5.1, UFS2.0 and UFS2.1 flash memory were mixed, and there was no common oleophobic layer. Huawei explained that “smooth experience is not a single component decision” and pointed out that the running score does not match the user’s real usage scenario. Yu Chengdong, the person in charge of Huawei’s mobile phone, said in his Weibo that it was “friends” who made a lot of hype to vilify Huawei, and emphasized that the actual experience of eMMC and UFS is not much different. Currently, P10 phones can go to the after-sales point to apply the oleophobic layer, but there is no plan to recall or return the phones with eMMC flash memory.

  • In April 2018, Huawei announced the GPU Turbo technology. The marketing director issued the slogan “Scary technology” as the marketing slogan. The details were announced at the CES Asia exhibition in Shanghai. GPU Turbo can improve the performance of mobile games by 60%. The fps at runtime and HDR calculation are added, but at the same time only 30% of the previous power consumption is used. It seems to be significantly different from the previous overclocking speculation in the industry. The growth rate is far beyond the concept of overclocking, and overclocking cannot reduce power consumption. The point is that GPU Turbo is completely an effect achieved by software upgrades, so in addition to the latest Kirin 970 processor series phones that year, older phones such as 960 and 659 and M5 tablets can also use this technology. But the reality is that GPU Turbo is only effective for games on the specific optimization list. Although the detailed technical details are not known as confidential and the outside world does not know the inside story, it can be seen from this item that it is a reverse analysis of the code of some mainstream games, for each one. 3D display elements commonly used in games are used to tilt resources, and at the same time close or reduce the calculation of unnoticeable display items in the game screen. Temporarily reduce the graphics resolution to improve game performance.
  • On December 6, 2018, Huawei confirmed that the eldest daughter of the company’s founder Ren Zhengfei and the current vice chairman and chief financial officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou was arrested at the request of the U.S. government while transiting in Vancouver, Canada on December 1.
