Huawei P50 (Pro) presented: With Leica camera but without 5G

Huawei has finally revealed its new flagships. Huawei P50 and P50 Pro do without 5G, but otherwise offer top equipment.

While the flagships of the Huawei P series have always appeared in spring in recent years, there have been significant delays this year. Now are Huawei P50 and P50 Pro finally officially. The manufacturer presented the models in a live stream. The equipment of the two top models offers a few surprises.

Flagships without 5G

What is unusual for a high-end smartphone in 2021 is the absence of 5G. The new mobile communications standard is actually part of the standard equipment in this price range. The reason for the lack is likely to be the ongoing US sanctions, which make it much more difficult for Huawei to buy and manufacture smartphone processors.

For example, the manufacturer is now using the 4G version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 for the Huawei P50, while the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 4G from Huawei is also used as an alternative for the P50 Pro. The P50 is equipped with 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage, the P50 Pro offers 8 or 12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of storage. The battery has a capacity of 4,360 mAh for the Pro model and 4,1oo mAh for the P50. Both support fast charging with up to 66 watts.

Both models are visually quite similar, the curved display of the P50 Pro is particularly striking, while the P50 has a flat display. The Huawei p50 Pro has a 6.6 inch display with 120 Hz and 2,700 x 1,228 pixels, the P50 has a 6.5 inch display with 90 Hz and 2,700 x 1,224 pixels.

Leica cameras

The camera equipment is particularly interesting in the Huawei top models. After all, the predecessors P40 Pro and P40 still lead the camera quality benchmark after more than a year. The cameras in the P50 models are again from Leica. The lenses are housed in two large circular modules on the back.

There you will find four cameras on the P50 Pro: a 50 MP wide angle with an aperture of f / 1.8, a 40 MP monochrome sensor with an aperture of f / 1.6, a 13 MP ultra wide angle and a 64 MP telephoto . The P50 has three cameras: the same 50 MP wide angle as its sister model, plus a 13 MP ultra wide angle and a 12 MP telephoto. The P50 Pro achieves a 3.5x optical zoom with its cameras, and the P50 should even have a 5x optical zoom. The front cameras on both models have a resolution of 13 MP.

Price and availability

Huawei P50 and P50 Pro are the first smartphones from the manufacturer with its own operating system HarmonyOS, which is preinstalled in version 2. The two models will initially be launched in China. The Huawei P50 Pro is there in Huawei Online-Store offered from 6,488 yuan, which corresponds to about 845 euros. There is still no official information about the market launch in Europe.
