Huawei is still working out ways to ensure that its flagship smartphone lineup does not die out. The company recently launched the Huawei Mate 40 series with limited Kirin 9000 SoC. This series has been largely unavailable but at least, the company has a flagship. Now, Huawei’s plan is to make sure that its flagships keep hitting the market even though it has limited chips. Huawei did not stop the research and development of the P series and Mate series. Follow-up models such as Huawei P50 and Mate 50 will hit the market soon.
Huawei’s inventory for the Kirin 9000 is less than 9 million. Even after releasing the Mate 40 series, Huawei claims that it has a reserve for the Huawei P50 and Mate 50 series.
The standard version of the Huawei P50 series will use a 90Hz refresh rate. However, the high-end version will have a refresh rate of 120Hz. This series will come with the Kirin 9000 and 9000E just like the Mate 40 series. In addition, the screen quality of this series of models is very good, and the rear Leica film camera will still be used. The main imaging system is similar to that of Huawei Mate40, but the binocular zoom factor increases by 200 times.
Huawei P50 series should come with a 66W wired fast charging + 50W wireless fast charging. At least, the regular version will use this charging configuration. As for the high version, Huawei is considering using a new 135W fast charging. However, there is no final decision yet as the company is still working on the battery density and durability.
Furthermore, reports claim that this device will not use the HarmonyOS 2.0. This means that it will still come with the EMUI 11 system.
In other aspects, the Huawei P50 series will come with 4 surround speakers and an upgraded vibration motor. Just recently, we have seen many renders referring to the P50. But it turns out they are fake, except for the basic version. Although there are many colors, there is no plain leather version. The body will be lighter and thinner than that of the Mate 40.
Huawei insiders say that the company is currently focusing on categories other than mobile phones. The Chinese manufacturer has its sight on the PC and tablet industry. It is also giving more attention to the wearable, audio, smart selection, and IoT industries.
