According to some recent reports, Huawei will release the new Mate 50 series of flagship phones early next year. Part of Mate 50 uses Kirin 990 chip, and some uses Qualcomm 898 chip, but only 4G version.
Huawei Mate 50 smartphones will be released earlier than expected
According to earlier reports, the Huawei Mate 50 series is expected to be unveiled in the first quarter of next year, most likely in March.
Not surprisingly, the Mate 50 series will be further improved on the screen and camera. It is worth mentioning that the smartphone will be natively equipped with Hongmeng OS 2.0 system. As for the actual first sale, it may be after the first quarter.
In addition, Huawei’s mobile phone business will continue to advance. According to reports, Yu Chengdong recently stated at an internal presentation on consumer business that Huawei’s mobile phones will continue to do so and that the king will return in 2023.
In September this year, Huawei’s rotating chairman Xu Zhijun said in an interview that after the sanctions; Huawei has been relying on inventory to survive and solve the chip problem. It will rely on the joint efforts of China’s semiconductor industry chain; which will take a lot of effort and a long time.
Huawei will entrust the release of smartphones to contractors under their brands
The first step towards saving the smartphone business for the Chinese company Huawei Technologies; which fell under US sanctions, was the separation of the Honor brand into an independent business. Now the Chinese giant is thinking about designing smartphones for third-party manufacturers who will sell them under their own brands.
The new plan of Huawei was shared by Bloomberg, citing its own sources. According to reports, Huawei Technologies wants to allow third-party companies; to release models of smartphones developed by it under other brands; while retaining access to those components that the Chinese giant cannot purchase due to sanctions. Chinese companies PTAC and TD Tech are possible partners. The former already offers Nova-branded smartphones manufactured by Huawei on its website for corporate clients. In the future, the range of offers can expand at the expense of private brand models developed by the senior partner.
Reportedly, Huawei specialists have already begun to revise the design of key smartphone models in order to move away from using their own HiSilicon processors in the direction of replacing them with Qualcomm and MediaTek products. Together with the continued production of Huawei-branded smartphones, this will allow the company to sell more than 30 million smartphones by the end of next year. The restrictions imposed by the US sanctions have already led to the fact that Huawei’s revenue in the segment of consumer devices; which includes smartphones, has been falling for four quarters in a row. The leadership of the Chinese giant has repeatedly spoken out in favor of preserving this type of business even in the face of tough sanctions.
