Some like curved screen smartphones, while others like straight screen devices. But there is a certain reason why the phone’s screen should have curvature on its edges. We mean it adds convenience when holding it in hands and doesn’t have pressure on the palm. In this sense, Huawei has previously developed a curved screen with 88° of curvature. It is also known as a waterfall screen because the side screen extends to the frame to form an 88° hyper-curved surface. So when looking at it, visually, there is no frame. Huawei’s first mobile phone to use this screen was the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. It was launched three years ago. Later, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro adopted it too.
No Waterfall Screen Anymore
Unfortunately, according to a Chinese leaker, this type of screen used in the Mate 30 Pro and the Mate 40 Pro won’t be continued on the Mate 50 Pro. This is also in line with the leaked film of the alleged Huawei Mate 50 Pro.
At the same time, from the position of the earpiece of the film, we can see that the front of the Huawei Mate 50 Pro will use bangs. The Huawei Mate 50 Pro is still a function-driven product. Its front camera will support multiple new features and functions in addition to the continuation of active face recognition unlocking. For example, in the bangs of the Mate 20 Pro, we could find an infrared fill light, front camera, speckle projector, infrared camera, ambient light sensor, and a distance sensor. So the phone was able to realize 3D face recognition with high security. Something similar and even better is expected to see on the upcoming Mate line models.
Plus, we can notice that the forehead and chin are too narrow. Thus, though the handset won’t come with a super-curved screen, the screen of this device will still be very attractive.
Moreover, if these speculations are true, it means, that in three years, the Huawei Mate line will get the biggest change.
On the other hand, some users think that the waterfall screen brings an immersive experience and a very good grip. The next group of users says that the waterfall screen is easy to touch by mistake, it’s difficult to find a corresponding film for it, and the screen replacement cost is high.
Huawei Mate 50 Series Hardware
The Huawei Mate 50 series conference is expected to be held on September 7, and it is expected to bring four models of Huawei Mate 50E, Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro, and Mate 50 RS. In terms of processors, the Kirin chips will be replaced by Qualcomm chips. Among them, the Mate 50E will sport a Snapdragon 778G, and the other three models will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 4G version (model SM8425).
In order to satisfy the users who require 5G support, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro will have a supporting 5G communication option. It is commonly known as a “physical plug-in” that realizes 4G change to 5G in seconds. For this, users will only need to activate the eSIM service.
In addition, since the cooperation between Huawei and Leica expired, the Mate 50 series will fully adopt its own XMAGE imaging solution Another selling point of this series will be the new HarmonyOS 3.
