Huawei has shown a teaser of its P50 smartphone. The company does not yet give a date for the presentation or the release of the smartphone. In recent years, P-phones came out in the spring.
Huawei showed the teaser at the end of its HarmonyOS presentation Wednesday. In it, the manufacturer showed, among other things, a tablet and watch with the new operating system. Huawei also announced that its Mate X2 and Mate 40 phones will receive an update with HarmonyOS. Those phones now run on Emui over Android.
HarmonyOS is Huawei’s own operating system, although it is probably a fork of Android on phones and tablets, as it turned out earlier. The intention is to make devices with HarmonyOS work better with each other.
The teaser shows that the P50 has two large camera islands. Three lenses can be seen in the top, one in the bottom. One of the cameras has an ultra wide-angle 18mm in 35mm equivalent and another is a presumably 125mm periscopic zoom. The brand name Leica also adorns the housing. It is probably the P50 Pro. Huawei would also have a P50 in the making, as was previously stated in a rumor. The teaser speaks of the P50 series.
CEO Yu Chengdong added that there is no date yet for the presentation of the P50. Predecessors P40, P30 and P20 always came out around April. The delay is believed to be due to the US government’s trade ban on US companies from trading with Huawei. As a result, it was able to purchase fewer components.
