Huawei is known for launching its high-end camera-centric P-series in the first quarter of the year. However, in an attempt to release the P50 series pre-installed with the company’s HarmonyOS 2.0 and hardware supply delayed the arrival of the P50 models this year.
Although some rumors have pointed to the announcement in June, we are nearing the end and there has been no presentation of equipment yet. However, new information reveals a more specific date. A Chinese digital blog went to Weibo to share a binary code 1011011001 to reveal the release date of the P50 line. This code is converted to 729, which suggests that P50, P50 Pro and P50 Pro+ may be released on July 29th.
Another leaker claimed that the Huawei P50 series may mainly include 4G devices running on the Kirin 900 SoC due to the supply issue, which is not only well known globally, but also helps the US blockade of Huawei.
However, there is a possibility that the schedule will include 5G variants. Another source said the P50 will be equipped with a new 1/8-inch sensor for the ultrawide camera. So it looks like the P50 could feature the largest ultrawide camera sensor on the market in a smartphone. But the information is diverse, but the design is certain, which has already been revealed and confirmed by Huawei itself, at the last event about the Harmony OS.
Other reports claim that the Huawei P50 Pro + and Huawei P50 will feature the 1-inch Sony IMX800 sensor as the primary lens, which is the biggest smartphone camera sensor so far and which already equips some smartphones, such as the Sharp Aquos R6 and the Leica Phone 1. The base model should feature the main lens, an ultrawide camera and a telephoto camera in its three-chamber configuration and a slightly curved OLED screen.
The P50 Pro can feature a main camera, an ultrawide sensor and a periscope lens in its three camera system. The P50 Pro+’s rear camera system could include the main camera, an ultra-wide lens, a telephoto camera, a periscope lens and a ToF depth sensor, so it would be the brand’s first smartphone with five photo sensors.
