Huawei sent out invitations to the event to celebrate the announcement of the Huawei P50, a month and a half after showing the design of the next-generation camera phone at the June launch of the new products. The event will take place on July 29 at 14:00 Kyiv time.
Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard said the Huawei P50 will usher in a new era of mobile photography. That is, as before, it focuses on the capabilities of the camera.
In total, three models are expected within the Huawei P50 series – the base Huawei P50, the middle P50 Pro, and the top-end P50 Pro +. They will receive an updated design with a massive oval block with two separate circular sections that house the camera modules.
According to rumors, the base Huawei P50 has a 6.1-6.2 diagonal AMOLED display slightly curved on the sides, while the P50 Pro has a 6.6-inch display with very strongly curved sides, called a “waterfall” screen, and The P50 Pro + features a 6.8-inch Surround Screen panel with a higher degree of curvature on all four sides.
Regarding the hardware basis of the Huawei P50, there are conflicting rumors – some attribute the 5nm Kirin 9000 chip, and others a variant of the Snapdragon 888 chipset with LTE support. Earlier, Richard Yu expressed concerns that the current generation of SoC Kirin 9000 (based on it the latest models of the Mate 40 series ) may end up being the last since US sanctions do not allow Huawei to order the production of new chips from TSMC.
Speaking of the Huawei P50 camera, the main camera module will use a Sony IMX800 inch sensor, and the periscope telephoto module will support 7x optical zoom, covering the EGF range of 18-125mm. But there may be differences in camera configuration between the series models. It was also mentioned earlier about support for fast 66-watt charging.
Also, Huawei P50 will be the first smartphone of the manufacturer with the preinstalled Harmony OS 2.0 “out of the box” – at the June presentation, the manufacturer announced plans to update about 100 models to the current version of HarmonyOS 2.0.
