Earlier this month, Huawei teased its next flagship smartphone P50 Pro with a Leica camera. The Chinese phone maker hadn’t disclosed the release date and everybody was left speculating. But, the latest tipsters suggest Huawei’s next flagship P50 lineup may arrive by the end of July.
But the latest leak has cast new light on Huawei P50’s launch data and its hardware. A Chinese blogger shared a binary code 1011011001 on China’s popular social networking site Weibo. The code seemed to reveal the launch date of the P50 series phones. The code converts to 729, and we may derive that P50, P50 Pro, and P50 Pro+ might finally get their launch on July 29.
New Leak On Camera
Another source has claimed that P50 will sport a new 1/1.8-inch sensor for the ultrawide camera. It hints at P50 featuring the largest ultrawide camera sensor.
Another tipster claims that Huawei P50 Pro+, the highest of the siblings, may feature a 1-inch Sony IMX800 primary lens. This, if true, will be the biggest smartphone camera sensor ever. Meanwhile, P50 is tipped to come with the main lens, an ultrawide camera, and a telephoto camera in its triple camera setup.
New leak also suggests the P50 Pro might feature the main camera, an ultrawide shooter, and a periscope lens in its triple camera setup at the back. While, P50+ may comprise of the main camera, an ultrawide lens a telephoto camera, a periscope lens, and a ToF depth sensor. The reports claim both devices will come with ‘waterfall’ curved edge displays.
Only 4G Phones?
A leak also suggested that the Huawei P50 series might come equipped with the Kirin 900 SoC-powered 4G devices in contrast to the rumors of a Snapdragon 888 SoC with 5G support. But, it seems odd that Huawei would take such a chance with 4G-only devices. Given that P50 is coming with Huawei’s own HarmonyOS 2, it looks likely that Huawei would bring a 5G device after all to lure its customer base.
Huawei P50 series will be a monumental lineup for the embattled company which has suffered enough setbacks due to US restrictions in the past. After losing Google Services and Play Store access, Huawei’s smartphone sales have nosedived over the years. However, the company’s cross-device compatible HarmonyOS 2 might lead to a resurgence for the Chinese company again.
Huawei P50 series will rely on its pure hardware prowess and camera capabilities to reach the customers who want a fresh taste of Huawei’s HarmonyOS 2 on the next Huawei flagship. But it remains to be seen if the customers are convinced enough to switch to HarmonyOS 2 from Android. Let’s wait and watch how the P50 lineup comes along on July 29.
