Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, is getting set to unveil the Huawei nova 10 series. Due to the ban on Huawei, the company now releases one Mate, or one P series each year. Last year, the company unveiled the Huawei P50 series on July 29th. If all goes according to plan, the company will unveil the Huawei Mate 50 series in the third quarter of this year. Over the past few months, there have been multiple reports regarding the Huawei Mate 50 series. This company will also unveil its latest HarmonyOS 3.0 with the Mate 50 series. This new system will bring some major changes to users and has already started developer testing recruitment.
Equalleaks claims that the Huawei Mate 50 series officially hit the market on September 12th. The leak claims that this device will come with a new Kirin SoC, “Kirin 9000s”. However, there is not much information regarding this new Kirin chip. With the arrival of the Huawei Mate 50 series, Huawei officials also confirm that HarmonyOS will launch globally.
Derek Yu, President of Huawei’s Consumer Business Center, previously confirmed that the Huawei Mate 50 series will be released in 2022. He also confirmed that the Mate 50 series launch will hold at a global press conference and this device will come with HarmonyOS. According to reports, this flagship smartphone is already in testing and will arrive in two months.
Huawei Mate 50 leaks
Popular Weibo leakster, @DCS revealed an image which indicates that the Huawei Mate 50 test model comes with the new Kirin SoC. This chip is the Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 9000s. In addition, the release date of the Huawei’Mate 50 series is scheduled for September 12. This means that the Huawei Mate 50 launch will go head-to-head with Apple’s iPhone 14 series.
As of now, there are salient reports that the iPhone 14 series will arrive in August or September this year. While Huawei will not have any impact globally, the tussle in the important Chinese smartphone market will be intense. These smartphones will go head-to-head and the competition for new phones from other Chinese brands will be fierce.
Judging from previous revelations, the Huawei Mate 50 series will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 4G processor. However, this smartphone will support a mobile phone case which will make it support the 5G network. This device also comes with a better camera relative to the Huawei P50 series. Furthermore, the new HarmonyOS 3.0 will bring more convenient interaction and collaboration capabilities.
Huawei released the developer preview version of HarmonyOS 3 last year. It will continue to innovate around the three core values of system architecture, super terminal, and one-time development and multi-terminal deployment. Its target is to bring a comprehensive upgrade of system capabilities and development tools. Last week, Huawei officially commences the HarmonyOS 3.0 Open beta recruitment for developers.
