Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, is not giving up on the smartphone just yet. After the ban by the U.S., the general idea is that Huawei’s smartphone business will not survive another year. However, the company’s smartphone business has been afloat for over two years without the U.S. Presently, Huawei is getting set to unveil its latest flagship series, the Huawei P50 series.
A new prototype image from GMSArena shows the latest image of the Huawei P50 series. Over the past few months, there have been multiple renders of the Huawei P50 and P50 Pro. These images show that this series will use two large camera lenses on the rear. However, the latest prototype image shows something completely different.
According to the reports, these images are part of the upcoming Huawei P50 series. Due to the lack of a periscope lens on the rear, this image is probably the Huawei P50. The Huawei P50 Pro should come with a periscope camera.
Nevertheless, it is important to note that the camera design looks like the Huawei Mate 30 series. There is a good chance that someone is trying to be mischievous and used the Huawei Mate 30 to produce this image. It will be very unusual for Huawei to use an old design for its latest flagship.
Another notable absentee from the images is the volume rocker. Recall that the Huawei Mate 30 does not come with a volume rocker. Nevertheless, the Huawei P40 40 series reintroduced this feature. Will Huawei remove this feature in the P50 series? This will be too much inconsistency on Huawei’s part and it is most unlikely that the company will go back and forth like this.
Huawei P50 series to arrive with HarmonyOS 2.0 out-of-the-box
As of now, the most probable launch date for the Huawei P50 series is sometime in June. The company is expected to unveil this smartphone with the HarmonyOS 2.0 out-of-the-box. Presently, the HarmonyOS 2.0 Beta 3.0 is already out for developers. Huawei’s flagship smartphones like Huawei Mate 40 and Huawei P40 series can install this update. In fact, a recent screenshot shows the HarmonyOS 2.0 Beta 3.0 user interface on Honor 9X.
This Beta 3.0 is still an internal beta for developers and users with special access. However, the company will unveil the first public beta pretty soon. This will happen certainly before the launch of the Huawei P50 series in June.
