The sanctions imposed by the US administration on Huawei have done their job. The company has completely depleted the reserves of single-chip Kirin systems, so it was not possible to count on large volumes of Huawei P50 smartphones. But, according to new data, this volume will be very scanty.

Reportedly, a total of one million P50 smartphones will be released – very, very little. Based on this, one can not even expect that the new flagships will be sold outside of China – domestic demand will quickly absorb all this volume and will not even look at the absence of Google services.
It is also noted that although formally there will be three models in the lineup, one or two will actually go on sale. In stores, the most exclusive (based on the scanty volume of production) Huawei flagships will appear in August, and its premiere will take place in July.
According to rumors, the announcement of the P50 was supposed to take place first in March, then it was said about May and a possible postponement to June, and now the new items are generally postponed until July. At the same time, it is unshakable that all models of the P50 line will run HarmonyOS.
The same OS will be used in the flagship tablet MatePad Pro 2, which is also actively preparing for release. Moreover, Huawei wants to spread the dates of their premiere: apparently, the MatePad Pro 2 will debut in June and will go on sale before the Huawei P50.
As for the May announcements, they will still take place, but without the P50 and MatePad Pro 2. So, next month, the premiere of the new FreeBuds 4 wireless headphones is expected, new devices in the PC category (that is, we are waiting for laptops and, possibly, desktops), as well as new smartwatches (including for children).
On the other hand, Huawei P50 and Huawei P50 Pro design confirmed: live photos of covers published. Real photos confirm the renders were accurate.
Real photos confirm that the renders were accurate, however, they still do not contain images of the smartphones themselves, so the number and location of image sensors continue to be a mystery.
Earlier it was reported that the Huawei P50 series will be equipped with an exclusive Sony IMX800 image sensor, the optical format of which will be close to 1 inch. The flagship model Huawei P50 Pro + will receive a liquid lens, which will provide the highest focusing speed.
The design of the bezel should also change, the bezels of the screen will become even smaller, and the front camera will move to the center of the display. The Huawei P50, P50 Pro, and P50 Pro + are expected to be powered by the Kirin 9000L, Kirin 9000E, and Kirin 9000 SoCs respectively.
