Even the most avid Huawei hater in the US has to admit that the company has put together a delicious flagship line this year. The start of each year was once reserved for the company’s photography-focused P series (no pun intended) with the technologically advanced Mate series released later in the same year. But with all the bans on Huawei, it now produces a flagship line every year, moving from the P series one year to the Mate series the following year.
This means that with the Mate 50 line-up available in 2022, the P60 series is scheduled for 2023. However, it is surprising that Huawei has produced such a large flagship this year and the reaction of consumers in China has been surprising with Long lines greet the Mate 50 models when they were released in September.
Here’s the deal folks. Huawei has done a great job considering it has lost its ability to source parts from its US supply chain. As a result, the Google Mobile Service version of Android was no longer available. So he created his own HarmonyOS and the third version of the software is pre-installed on the Mate 50 line. It has also created its own ecosystem, Huawei Mobile Service, which is doing great.

Consider the Huawei Petal Search app looking for an app you want to install on your Huawei phone. If it can’t find a title in Huawei’s AppGallery, it will search third-party app stores for one that may have it for you. And to get around the chip ban that prevents foundries using American technology from shipping cutting-edge chips to Huawei, the latter uses powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chips that are optimized to work only with 4G signals.
The Huawei Mate 50 series has been the subject of a new announcement scheduled to be released with the European release of the phones. The video, called “Huawei Mate50 Series – Heralding a New Era for Smartphones”, lasts 75 seconds and starts showing the variable aperture of the 50MP rear camera ranging from f / 1.4-f / 4.0. Huawei also had to contend with the loss of Leica as Xiaomi’s photo partner. The Mate 50 line features Huawei’s XMAGE camera.

The video, which is about the Mate 50 Pro, shows the Super Macro Video mode and if the battery life drops to 1%, the Low Battery emergency mode will provide up to 12 minutes of phone calls or three hours of standby time. After a few seconds of video that will remind you of 9/11 (shame on Huawei!), The manufacturer boasts of its “Powerful gaming performance” and water resistance up to 6 meters (more than 19 feet).
The video ends by showing how Kunlun Glass will survive a fall from a snowy mountain.
The Huawei Mate 50 Pro features a 6.74-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a resolution of 1212 x 2616. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4G mobile platform is under the hood. The single SIM model has 8 GB of memory and 256 GB of storage space. The dual SIM unit carries 8GB of memory along with 256GB or 512GB of storage. Both models feature a 256GB microSD slot.
The rear camera series includes the 50MP variable aperture camera, a 13MP ultra wide-angle camera (f / 2.2 aperture) and a 64MP telephoto lens. The front camera weighs 13 MP and there’s a 3D depth-sensing camera for secure facial recognition similar to the iPhone’s Face ID (hence the notch on the Mate 50 Pro). There is a 4700mAh battery that supports 66W wired charging. Wireless charging happens up to 50W.
The Huawei Mate 50 Pro is a phone that could compete with any flagship available in the US and that includes iPhone 14 Pro Max, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, and Pixel 7 Pro.
