Huawei recently confirmed that it would be unveiling the flagship P50 series this month. The Chinese tech giant recently posted the event for the P50 series launch will take place on July 29. According to Huawei CEO Richard Yu, the Huawei P50 series will usher in a new era of mobile photography.
“The road forward has no end, this time we surpass ourselves in the field of imaging again. On July 29th, the HuaweiP50 series will soon release a new mobile imaging technology pioneered in the industry. The new era of mobile imaging will set sail, so stay tuned!”
The date was just a rumor up until now, but thanks to the official Weibo page of the company, we know it was the real thing. Reports are the Huawei P50 will arrive with an LTE-only version of the Snapdragon 888 chipset, but we’ve heard nothing on the Pro or the eventual Pro+.
Richard Yu has confirmed that launch date. So we don’t have long to wait to see the Huawei P50, though we don’t know its release date yet. Let’s have a look at the Huawei P50 rumored specifications.
Huawei P50: Rumored Specifications
Huawei is evidently trying to make a comeback after restrictions placed by the US government affected the software and components the company could use. Earlier in 2021, it launched HarmonyOS, its brand-new Android-rivaling operating system, with a few devices running it.
The P50 handsets will almost definitely be the first HarmonyOS smartphones. Rumors suggest that with this range, Huawei will introduce a 1-inch Sony sensor in the main camera that was recently seen on the Sharp Aquos R6 and Leitz Phone 1 from Leica.
The Huawei P50 is powered by the Huawei-made Kirin 9000 chipset, though, it could also have a modified Snapdragon 888 chipset according to some inside sources. That said, the Snapdragon chipset that could power the phone is expected to be a 4G-only one since the US sanctions limit 5G component supplies to Huawei.
The Huawei P50 series will feature HarmonyOS 2.0. In addition, the smartphone is backed by a 66W fast charging support, while rumors pointed to a 1-inch camera sensor by Sony, as well as a 1/1.18 aperture for the ultrawide shooter.
For more detailed specifications and pricing details of Huawei P50, we’ll have to wait until launch on July 29.
