Huawei’s Petal is its own in-house alternative to Google or Apple Maps, developed for the first-party HarmonyOS interface. The OEM has just unveiled a new and “powerful” real-world 3D feature for the app, touted to deliver hyper-realistic “digital worlds” based on a specific location. It looks for new GPU applications and techniques, as well as plenty of pictures of the country in question.

Huawei has showcased some of its latest software and AI achievements during its Developer Conference 2022. The event saw advancements such as the new satellite emergency messaging feature for the Mate Xs2 joined by something that the OEM’s director Yu Chendong now defines it as “a powerful new 3D map of the real world” on Weibo.

It apparently represents the ability to recreate a scene that spans up to 5 square kilometers (km2) of the real world in “super fine” detail in just 30 minutes. It involves rolling out Huawei’s Hi-Mesh form of the accelerated network to around 2,500 photos of the location in question and is rated to provide “centimeter-level” accuracy when it comes to appearance and texture. buildings.

Huawei predicts that its production will allow the viewer to ‘zoom in’ and ‘zoom in’ right into equally convincing interiors of the same buildings, and even recreate and change the weather operating in a given location.

In general, the new “3D online map” object sounds very…friendly to the metaverse; however, Huawei says it will help Petal compete with rivals such as Apple Maps. The OEM has yet to specify when the necessary update will roll out, or which HarmonyOS smartphone , tablet or other device will receive it first.
