Huawei has seen its market share drop in China, and it is soon to disappear from Europe too. However, that doesn’t stop the brand from developing a new flagship model that has now been fully visualized.
Huawei is making changes to the camera design again
Dummy units of the upcoming Huawei P50 that have been split on Weibo and discovered by Slashleaks originally confirm the updated design Preview of last month’s renderings by Tipper Steve Hemmerstoffer.According to reports, Huawei has equipped the smartphone with a 6.3-inch display and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. This setup, as can be seen with the dummy units, is coupled with very narrow bezels and a centered hole for the selfie camera.
Speaking of cameras, the back of the The Huawei P50 houses a huge stadium-shaped module in which there are also two circular bumps. The setup within the bumps has remained a mystery until now, but the dummy units shown above suggest there will be four sensors in total.
Their functions are unknown, but it’s safe to say that there will likely be a main camera, an ultra-wide camera, and a telephoto zoom shooter. The fourth camera could be a kind of time-of-flight sensor.
Could the Huawei P50 run HarmonyOS instead of Android?
The Huawei P50 is expected to be announced in June along with the premium Huawei P50 Pro and P50 Pro + models. Due to the lack of Google support, it is believed that these devices will also be the first to ship right out of the box with HarmonyOS.
This is confirmed by the sticker on one of the dummy units, which reads “powered by HarmonyOS” and which also shows the Huawei P50 branding.
The move means Huawei’s next flagships are unlikely to be seen as some of the flagships best phones of 2021, at least outside of China. But from a hardware standpoint alone, they will be strong competitors.
