Huawei P50 prototype captured in live photos. And it doesn’t look at all what many assumed. Leaci lettering instead of Leica makes you wonder.
Renders of Huawei P50 and P50 Pro smartphones have already been published on the Web several times, and the camera unit always looked uniform – in the form of a large oval. But in these images, the P50 prototype is completely different – with around stamping offset to the edge of the case.
- Huawei P50 Pro+ new shocking design, latest features and release date ‘confirmed’
- Huawei P50 line and Mate 50 flagships: top-end cameras and outdated platform
- Huawei P50 Pro will come with the latest HarmonyOS 2.0 BETA 2
- Huawei P50 Pro 5G (2021) New Impressive Design and Characteristics
This design is somewhat reminiscent of the Huawei Mate 30, only there the main camera unit is located in the center. It is doubtful that such a solution was used in the P50 – after all, the design should evolve, and not roll back two years ago.
In addition, the Leica brand is spelled incorrectly – another argument in favor of the fact that the photographed smartphone is just a prototype, moreover, far from the production model.
The front panel does not look unusual – we have already seen a dual camera in the same P40. However, the Huawei P50 is credited with an embedded single front camera like most of this year’s flagships. It probably will.
However, it is possible that we will still see a production model with a similar design: this is how one of the younger models of the P50 line could look like. For example, the P50 Lite.
Huawei P50, MatePad Pro 2, and Harmony OS 2.0 finalized in June
Dr. Wang Chenglu confirms “many devices” will be able to migrate to Harmony OS 2.0 by June 2021. Also, Huawei P50 Pro + will receive periscope 2.0 with significant improvements. And today we are going to discuss this in detail. Please watch the full video content.
The President of Huawei Consumer Business Group spoke at a press conference, during which he spoke about the plans of the mobile and Internet of things division. Dr. Wang Chenglu confirmed that “many devices” will be able to migrate to Harmony OS 2.0 by June 2021.
The divisional leader expects 300 million smartphones, tablets, and other IoT devices to be running the new Harmony OS by the end of the calendar year.
Sources confirm previously published information that the announcement of the flagship Huawei P50 series has been pushed back to June this year. Smartphones Huawei P50 will be the first mobile device that will run this operating system out of the box. The smartphones will launch alongside the MatePad Pro 2 tablet, which will also get the new OS out of the box.
Earlier it was reported that smartphones Huawei and Honor with EMUI 11 and Magic UI 4 will be able to upgrade to Harmony OS 2.0. However, some Chinese sources claim that this option will only be available for Kirin-based devices. That is, smartphones based on Snapdragon and Mediatek will not be able to try out the new OS.
Yesterday it became known that the Honor 9X has already received the beta version of HarmonyOS 2.0.
On the other hand, Huawei P50 Pro + will receive periscope 2.0 with significant improvements.
Huawei is preparing the Huawei P50 family, which will offer a number of significant camera improvements. The disgraced Chinese company is expected to offer the latest Leica main camera sensor, complemented by Liquid Lens, FreeForm Lens (minimizes distortion), and now an innovative periscope camera has been added to the list.
According to RODENT950, the Huawei P50 will get 5x optical zoom with periscope optics, the P50 Pro will have two lenses for 3x and 10x, while the P50 Pro + will offer 5-10x continuous zoom technology, which has not yet been available on the market.
The essence of the new approach is that the smartphone can smoothly change the focal length by moving the lenses along with the autofocus mechanism, while modern smartphones use a fixed focal length and digital interpolation to work in intermediate values.
The technology should improve image quality in these very intermediate stages, and periscope cameras will be effective not only at their peak. Recall that the Huawei P50 family is expected to be announced in May-June. Most likely, we will not see the innovative periscope outside of China if there is no improvement in US-China relations.
