Huawei completed off its huge Harmony OS 2 launch occasion with the primary official take a look at its upcoming flagship P50 smartphone – and there’s quite a bit to absorb.
The Huawei P50 has lengthy been rumoured to come back with a placing digital camera housing on the again and Huawei confirmed it’s certainly stepping into that path.
The snaps proven of the cellphone in the course of the streamed occasion all focussed on the again. And as you may see from the picture beneath, the again of the P50, a minimum of within the angles we will see, is taken up by a hefty digital camera array.
It is a daring transfer and the internet already has a lot of takes on Huawei’s decision, however what it does make very clear is that the P50 shall be all concerning the digital camera. You don’t have a digital camera module like this for those who’re not pushing cellular images ahead in a sizeable method. Nicely, I hope you don’t anyway…
Focussing on the digital camera isn’t one thing new for Huawei and it has been the standout options on the P-series telephones for years. It feels extra vital than ever with the P50 sequence because it’ll be the primary Huawei cellphone to push the Concord OS 2 software program.
As Huawei strikes additional away from Android and Google providers, the distinctive options of the cellphone turn out to be extra vital to strive and ensure individuals don’t plump for different Android telephones as an alternative.
Rumours so far have advised a minimum of one member of the Huawei P50 household will ship with a Sony IMX800 1-inch digital camera sensor. Having a sensor larger than anything available on the market (apart from Sharp Aquos R6, which is unique to Japan) can be a large headline-grabbing addition and will make this the best camera phone round.
Together with these photos of the P50, Huawei’s occasion additionally confirmed Concord OS 2 – the software program that can most certainly energy the upcoming flagship cellphone. I’ve been utilizing Harmony OS 2 for a number of days now on the MatePad Pro pill and there may be actually some potential right here, even when the query about app help nonetheless stays.
There’s a larger deal with widget than you’d discover on a regular Android system and it helps the homescreen really feel alive, quite than only a inflexible grid of apps.
When will we see the Huawei P50?
Throughout the occasion, Huawei Shopper Enterprise Group CEO Richard Yu mentioned a “launch date has not been set however we try to determine find out how to make this nice product obtainable to you”.
This remark appears to suggest the cellphone is able to go however actually casts doubt upon a launch date anytime quickly. At any time when we do see the P50 get an official launch, hopefully it’s one other digital camera king for Huawei.
