During Huawei’s HarmonyOS livestream, the company slightly teased its upcoming P50 flagship phone. In the original article from The Verge it was mentioned that the company didn’t provide a price tag or a release date, but they did demonstrate their queerly satisfying camera bumps.

You can see four camera lenses, and two flashes. Visually it’s impossible to measure out the size of the sensor or the megapixel count; the photo below confirms that Huawei is working alongside Leica with its optics. Perhaps Huawei made every effort to upgrade its periscope telephoto lenses that were pretty nice on the P40 Pro Plus.

The company claims it will “lift mobile photography to a new level.” But the size of the camera bump in comparison with P40 Pro Plus is bigger and it seems reasonable that Huawei might have crammed some even larger sensors and lenses in the P50.

Be welcome to watch this tease video on YouTube:

Not much information is available to us, but Huawei executive Richard Yu mentioned during the livestream: that it will have a “lightweight design” and an “iconic” design language. The P50 will likely ship with Huawei’s new HarmonyOS operating system built in, but it didn’t confirm it in the video (or even show the display powered on, for that matter).

The release date is covered with a mystery, though the company said that it is “trying to figure out how to make this great product available to you.” This phrase demonstrates that Huawei also feels the impacts of a global semiconductor shortage on itself. Besides, we shouldn’t forget about the US sanctions the country placed on the company. This can also slow down its production. which might also be causing supply strains around its Kirin processors. To that end, the MatePad Pro tablet it announced today has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor instead of one of Huawei’s own processors.
