Launching the Mate 50 smartphone series on Tuesday, Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei's Consumer Business Group, said that the smartphones could support satellite-based short message service (SMS).

A day earlier, had already released a teaser video indicating this capability, reports Digi Times.

Yu said that Mate 50 is the world's first smartphone supporting SMS based on China's homegrown BeiDou Navigation Satellite System.

It would allow users to send emergency text messages and locations via satellites, even in areas beyond territorial network coverage.

The Mate 50 with 6.7-inch display and 90Hz OLED panel houses Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset with 8GB RAM.

The Mate 50 Pro comes with a slightly bigger 6.74-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
