The source claims that Huawei will use the Kirin 9000 SoC for the Huawei P50. This contradicts a previous statement from Huawei Consumer Business CEO Richard Yu, who argued that the platform would only be used in Huawei Mate 40 smartphones.
In addition, the report states that the display suppliers for the Huawei P50 are Samsung Display and LG Display. Apparently, they are now preparing for production. The source also adds that Samsung Display and LG Display will definitely supply displays for the Huawei P50, but it is unknown if they will receive orders for the Huawei Mate 50 series.
According to another source, the first images of Huawei P50 Pro appeared on the network. They were created based on images from a patent that was registered by Huawei.
Yes, today, the first computer images of the upcoming flagship smartphone from Huawei, which, presumably, will be called the Huawei P50 Pro, appeared on the network.
Although these are unofficial renders, they were created based on images from a patent that was registered by Huawei, so the design in the renders is not completely groundless.
Judging by the renders, the main design feature of the Huawei P50 Pro will be the main camera, which will be located in a circle cut off from one side. The main camera unit contains four image sensors.
In general, the fate of the Huawei Mate 50 series is still in question, for a start, the company will have to find suppliers that the US government will allow to supply Huawei 5G equipment.
The company appears to have stocked up some hardware for the Huawei P50, but Huawei is currently changing strategy and relaunching 4G smartphones as the US does not allow other companies to sell 5G-enabled hardware to Huawei.
