Renders of the Huawei P50 Pro and Huawei P50 smartphones have already been published on the Web, and now an insider has published a video of the Huawei P50. It is easier to see the smartphone from all sides.
At the same time, the informant gave details about the P50. So, the smartphone received a flat display with a diagonal of 6.3 inches, a metal frame and a glass back panel. The dimensions of the smartphone are 156.7 x 74 x 8.3 mm, but taking into account the protrusion of the camera block, the thickness increases to 10.6 mm. In terms of dimensions, the Huawei P50 is noticeably larger than its predecessor: the dimensions of the Huawei P40 are 148.9 x 71.06 x 8.5 mm.
An insider published a rumor that the Huawei P50 could be the first smartphone with a 1-inch optical format sensor. But this has not yet been confirmed in any way, but there is no doubt about the presence of stereo speakers (one each on the bottom and top edges), an under-screen fingerprint scanner and an IR emitter for controlling household devices.
The video was published by Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks. There are already many confirmed leaks on his account. So, at the very beginning of January, he published high-quality renders of the Samsung Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphones, which were later fully confirmed.

Gizchina News of the week
The Huawei P50 will arrive on April 17th but in a few units
As it became known, the presentation of the new Huawei P50 line of flagship smartphones will take place in the second half of next month, or rather, on April 17, 2021.
Also, sources from the supply chain have confirmed that the supply of Huawei P50 will be limited. We do not know the exact reason, but it is understandable as well. Huawei has very few flagship HiSilicon Kirin 9000 SoCs, and the company has not received new SoCs since last year.
At the moment, the Huawei P50 series is already ready for mass production; it will include the Huawei P50, P50 Pro and P50 Pro + models. The basic version will have the Kirin 9000E mobile platform; and the bigger versions will get the Kirin 9000. In addition, the small version will have a 6.1-inch display, while the Huawei P50 Pro and Huawei P50 Pro + will receive a 6.6-inch and 6.8 -inch panel, respectively. Of course, the top cameras should be the main advantages of the P50 Pro and P50 Pro + smartphones.
The global version of the P50 should arrive with EMUI 11.1; while the Chinese version will receive HarmonyOS. The smartphone will arrive without Google services; instead of them, users will get Huawei Mobile Services and the AppGallery store.
