A few days ago, Yu Chengdong has officially announced that Huawei will hold a smart office spring conference at 21:30 on February 27. At the event, the company will officially release a couple of products including new notebooks, tablets, and other new products. Since the announcement, there have been speculations that the Huawei Mate 50 series could be the protagonist of the event. Earlier today, the president of Huawei Consumer BG Strategy, Li Changzhu, officially confirmed that the Mate 50 series will not launch on February 27th.
His Weibo message reads “Mate50 will come, but not now. In addition to Mate50, there are many good products worth paying attention to”
While his message kills all hopes of a February 27 launch for the Mate 50 series, he also confirms that the Huawei Mate 50 series is on its way. This smartphone will launch, just not now. This has also given many netizens reassurance of the arrival of this series. Nevertheless, there is no information on the possible launch date for this smartphone. At least, the Weibo post confirms the existence of the Mate 50 series.
The delay in the launch of this series is because Huawei is trying to optimize the supply chain issues. According to previous reports from the supply chain, the design of the Huawei Mate 50 series is complete. However, there are significant issues with components supply. This is why there is a consistent delay in the launch date for this smartphone. However, insiders are optimistic that the company will officially debut this smartphone by July.
Huawei Mate 50 series speculations
Over the past few weeks, there have been several renders of the Huawei Mate 50 series. These renders are based on available information and they show that the front of this smartphone still uses a hyperboloid screen with a large curvature. This is very similar to the Huawei P50 smartphone with a center punch-hole display.
In terms of the rear design, the Huawei Mate 50 continues to use the family-style circular camera module. However, the overall camera module is larger than in previous generations. The renders show that the camera module covers almost the entire upper half of the body. The module includes three cameras in a circular camera module. The secondary screen is similar to the Huawei P50 Pocket foldable smartphone screen
In terms of configuration, some previous reports claim that the Huawei Mate 50 has two models. There will be a model with the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 SoC and another model with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip. However, none of these models will support 5G network.
