The Huawei P50 is debuting on 29th July! Here are some sneak peek features!

An enhanced imaging sensor is one of them!

When the Huawei P50 was first teased during the HarmonyOS event, there are no specific dates announced. However there were reports stating that the phones would be released around July. Huawei has confirmed on their Weibo that the P50 series would be launched on July 29th, with some innovative camera features.

It is reported that there will be three phones in the series: P50, P50 Pro and the P50 Pro+. Huawei Consumer Business CEO Yu Richard stated that Huawei will be using “pioneered mobile imaging technology”.

The P50 series have been reported to use a custom-built Sony IMX800 sensor. It is also one of the first 1in. mobile camera sensors (the Leica lens used on the Sharp Aquos R6 is the first). This sensor has a resolution of 50mp, typical for flagship phones. There are reports also stating that all except the vanilla variant will be using this Sony sensor.

Fret not, the Huawei P50 will still include a competitive flagship camera. There were leaks stating that the Huawei P50 will be using three camera sensors: A Sony IMX707 main sensor, a Sony IMX600 lens (possibly ultrawide) and a 3x telephoto sensor that was not disclosed.

Meanwhile, the P50 Pro will compose of four sensors, these are: Sony IMX800 main lens, an OV64A Omnivision lens (more likely an ultrawide lens), a 5x telephoto sensor and a Time-of-Flight camera.

While all phones would be released on July 29th, the company may delay the highest-end unit, the P50 Pro+ with its release date. There are rumours that there will be two versions of the phone: a 4G variant and a 5G variant. The Chinese variant of the phone will launch with a Kirin 9000 chipset with 4G-only connectivity, while the international variant (still without Google services) will use a 4G-only Snapdragon 888. The 5G editions of the phones are expected to arrive in an unknown date in the future.

All phones will feature an OLED display, the P50 Pro will feature a curved display while the Pro+ will feature a “waterfall” edge-to-edge curved display. The vanilla P50 may feature a standard OLED display typical to flagships.
