Recently, we began getting more and more news concerning the Huawei Mate 50 series. From some tipsters, we learned that the company is going to announce new models in August. Today, the same source revealed more information about the specs of the upcoming series of smartphones.
It turns out the manufacturer is testing a chip code-named Kirin 9000S. The latter will be inside the forthcoming Huawei Mate 50. If nothing else, Huawei’s Kirin 9000S chip will make competition with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the MediaTek Dimensity 9000. Well, it won’t make competition but it will be on the same par with them.
In other aspects, the Huawei Mate 50 series will be similar to the Huawei P50 series. Although some sections will be improved, including imaging performance, support for structured light, etc. Frankly, users shouldn’t wait for too many improvements in terms of hardware. This is logical when taking into consideration the situation Huawei currently is in.
Prior to this, we have heard that the Huawei Mate 50 series will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 4G version. And the latter will still dominate in the line. So as you understand, the 5G version of the handset will be powered by its own-made Kirin 9000S chips.
The phones from this line will leave the factory with HarmonyOS 3.0 onboard, bringing more convenient interaction and collaboration capabilities. By the way, the manufacturer released the developer preview version of HarmonyOS 3 last year. It continues to innovate around the three core values of system architecture, super terminal, one-time development, and multi-terminal deployment.
The company keeps everything in top secret. But based on the rumors, some media released renders of the phone. From them, we can see the Huawei Mate 50 still uses a hyperboloid screen with a large curvature on the front. This is a familiar design used in Huawei’s top-end models for a few generations.
On the back, it uses a family-style circular camera module. But the overall footprint is larger than that of previous generations, almost covering the upper half of the fuselage. There are three sensors in the circle.
