Huawei, the China-based technology giant, which is currently going through a rough time because of the sanctions imposed by the United States, is set to make a daring move of launching a new flagship lineup. The company has confirmed that it will be unveiling the Huawei P50 series on 29th July.
A company representative in Finland has confirmed that the P50 series smartphones won’t be limited to the Chinese market but will be launched globally. It remains to be seen what the company has selected for the smartphones in terms of chipset given that it has a limited supply of Kirin 9000 SoC which Huawei has already used on several models.
There’s a possibility that the company may opt for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC with 4G-only connectivity support. In that case, it will be interesting to see how the Chinese brand differentiates between China and Global models.
A teaser shared by Huawei has confirmed that the P50 series smartphones will come with a Leica camera and at least one of the models will feature a 125mm periscope lens with an f/3.4 aperture. It appears to be the same lens found on the P40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro but rumors indicate a new sensor for the upcoming lineup.
Huawei has confirmed that it will continue to develop its own ecosystem after the company launched HarmonyOS. The company says that it already has over 134,000 apps and more than four million developers have signed up for the platform.
