Huawei has unveiled a new capability for business users who multitask between smartphones, PCs, and anything in between.

Known as Super Device, the feature is an extension of the Chinese tech giant’s Multi-Screen collaboration capability that was introduced in 2020, allowing users to connect two devices at the same time, such as a PC with a tablet or smartphone, or a smartphone with a tablet.

This time around, however, users will have greater flexibility over their cross-device connections, allowing all compatible Huawei phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, Smart TVs, and other monitors to work seamlessly across different operating systems as one integrated ecosystem.

This includes wireless screen-sharing, transfer and management of files, as well as enhanced editing capabilities.

For instance, users will be able to more accurately edit an image file saved on their mobile phone by displaying it on their laptop or PC screen, with all changes being automatically saved to their phone.

They will also be able to simply drag and drop different files across their connected devices, eliminating the need for USB drives or email transfers, as well as multitask during video conferences by hosting the call on a seperate screen while taking meeting notes on a laptop.

The feature will enable users to focus on tasks by eliminating the need of reaching for another device to access a certain file or software. Instead, they will be able to reach for the required element from the main device they’re using, allowing them to maintain high productivity levels and avoid distractions.

Super Device is available on Huawei mobile phones, tablets, monitors, Smart TVs, as well as laptops running PC Manager 12.0.2 or later.

Huawei has also made it possible to purchase their devices in bundles: choosing between the Smart Work Bundle that includes a MatePad Pro 12.6 256GB Wifi and MateView screen for an estimated £1,355, or the Super Device Bundle, which comes with the two devices as well as the Matebook X Pro laptop for an estimated £2,370.
