HUAWEI recently launched the Mate50 series in China in September 2022 and now they are finally ready to bring it to our shores.
The company didn’t say which phones will be coming here, but based on their website, it’s going to be Mate50 and Mate50 Pro. In China, they also have the Porsche Design Mate50 RS.
Here’s a quick rundown of the specs. All the Mate50 phones are packing Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, but are only capable of 4G because of the US sanctions. The Pro version has a 6.74-inch OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and 10-bit colour depth, while the regular version has a 6.7-inch OLED display but only a 90Hz refresh rate.
Both versions have the same 50MP OIS main camera and a 13MP ultrawide camera. But the Pro has a 64MP OIS telephoto camera, while the vanilla version has a 12MP telephoto camera.
The Pro has a 13MP front ultrawide camera and a 3D ToF sensor for face unlock, while the non-Pro version also has the same camera minus the face unlock sensor.
The Mate50 Pro is powered by a 4,700mAh battery and the non-Pro has a smaller 4,460mAh. Both phones support 66W wired and 50W wireless charging.
The most special and advanced feature found only in the Mate50 Pro is the use of Beidou Satellite Message 3 protocol. This feature allow people to send a message and location using satellite, but we don’t think this feature will be available in Malaysia.
Besides that, HUAWEI will also be introducing the brand-new nova 10 series, Watch GT 3 SE and Matepad series. In addition to that, the company is also unveiling the new EMUI 13 for the Mate50 Series.
