New era of cross-device collaboration with Super Device

New era of cross-device collaboration with Super Device

TOP global IT company Huawei announced the Super Device concept for Smart Office at the recent Mobile World Congress 2022, a new solution that greatly enhances cross-device connectivity and collaboration among supported Huawei devices. The software-driven feature is in line with the company’s push toward a so-called Seamless AI Life, which the company envisions across five major scenarios: Health and Fitness, Easy Travel, Smart Office, Entertainment, Smart Home.

As one of the key scenarios of that Seamless AI Life, Huawei ( brings the vision of “Boundless Creation and Seamless Communication to the Smart Office,” aiming to enable a digitally efficient work life experience by synergizing the two core Huawei capabilities: Cross-Device Collaboration and Ecosystem Integration. Cross-device collaboration enables users to connect multiple devices together into a singular experience, while ecosystem integration closes the gap between Windows and mobile platforms, stimulating creativity and improving communication efficiency.

In the Philippine market, Huawei will also bring several new devices with Super Device to consumers in April, including the MateBook Series, the new Matepad and a Printer.

As consumers own more and more smart devices, users often find themselves juggling two different and fragmented ecosystems: laptops for work, and smartphones for entertainment. With no single device fully supporting all of a user’s daily needs, the ability for devices to leverage each other’s strengths and create a single unified experience has become more important than ever. This is especially important with the rising demand for maintaining productivity while consumers are on the move.

Cross-Device Collaboration makes connection between devices more seamless and fuss-free. It has been at the frontier of innovating technology that connects devices, introducing the OneHop feature in 2018, which transfers smartphone files to PC with just one tap. In 2020, it introduced Multi-Screen Collaboration, enabling multi-screen collaboration between two devices, such as PC-tablet, PC-smartphone, and tablet-smartphone.

This brought new functions such as the transfer of files between two devices via drag and drop, as well as the ability to directly open mobile files on the laptop. Huawei is now set to eliminate inter-device barriers by bringing the Super Device, first launched in 2021, to the Smart Office, allowing all compatible devices to work as one.

Ecosystem Integration is another core capability of Smart Office. With mobile apps excelling in content consumption needs, the Huawei Mobile App Engine brings access of AppGallery’s wealth of popular productivity and entertainment apps to Huawei laptops.

Now, the Super Device is available on Huawei PCs via the platform’s easy drag-to-connect interface in the PC’s Control Centre, enabling speedy access to your phone images and files, as well as quick and convenient smart screen connectivity for presentations. This allows a focused and efficient workflow for the user who is now able to process tasks with ease across devices.

With the Pop-Up Pairing feature, the Huawei PC can also swiftly and conveniently connect to Huawei’s wireless earbuds, speakers, Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, as well as printer, holistically improving the smart office experience.

Once connected, the smartphone will be available as an external drive in the PC. This allows users to access smartphone files like they would with any other external storage device, using the PC file system UI they are familiar with.

As a Super Device, the smartphone’s interface will also be displayed on the PC’s screen, and with Multi-Screen Collaboration, up to three mobile apps can be opened directly on the PC for multi-tasking. Users can also easily access material saved on their phone via their PC through drag and drop.

Super Device brings users to the next level of technological experience, productivity, and enjoyment as part of Huawei’s push to realize the Seamless AI Life. In the near future, the company plans to continue adding support for more devices.
