Huawei P50 Review: Launch Date, Cost and Specs Leaks

Huawei P50 is considering as Huawei’s upcoming Leading phone expecting to land this year. The Huawei P40 and its brethren (Huawei P40 Pro Plus and P40 pro) are somehow amongst the top handsets of 2020.  They possess wonderful snappers, amply of power, and exceptional battery lives. But they’re all expressively suppress when it goes for software, as they all lack Google Mobile service.

Tactlessly, that software problem is one that perhaps will not be resolved for the Huawei P50 series. However, it may be at least an upgrade in this upcoming range. There are so many specs we’re hoping for from the next P50 family to design them better enough than Huawei P40. You’ll get our complete wish list for this phone further down. However, before that, you’ll get info on the probable price and release date, together with leaked features and specs. Though, we have’ get much data about this upcoming Huawei Phone yet. However, we will update you with all the details that we got.

Recent News: An unofficial leak has appeared, gave us a first preview of what the Huawei P50 Pro may be like.

Huawei P50 Specs Rumors in Detail

The point we want to know

  • What is this? The upcoming Huawei flagship
  • When is it unveiling? Possibly in March 2021
  • How much will it cost? Expected more than about $900/AU$1,099 /£699

Huawei P50 Launch Date and Cost

The only update in case of when the Huawei P50 will declare, states that it will come up in the first half of this year. That’s both imprecise and predictable, though we can make a very worthy deduction about this upcoming Huawei Range. However, the Huawei P30 and Huawei P40 both launched on 26 March of their corresponding years. So, 26 March of this year looks very prospective in terms of P50’s Launch. Definitely, the Huawei P20 was declared on 27 March and so we are also expecting this time period for the P50 range too.

We’d presume the handsets to then distribute in two weeks of announcement. If no earlier, you will be capable of getting the Huawei P50 in your hand in April 2021. As comes to the cost, we did not get any data about this. However, the Huawei P40 was hurled for around $900/ AU$1,099 /£699, though the Huawei P50’s asking price may be the same. Obviously, this’s just the original model handset. The Huawei P40 Pro priced for $1,100/ AU$1,599 /£899 while P40 Pro Plus cost bumpily $1,570 / AU$2,500 / £1,299. Thus we expect the costs to increase sharply for the Huawei P50 Pro Plus and Huawei P50 Pro. In addition to a case with the P40 family, these handsets around definitely won’t ship in the United States.

Design and Display

Not sundry photos of the Huawei P50 family have appeared yet. However, we have got some leaks about the pro version of Huawei P50 that suggests its specs. According to rumor, the P50 Pro will come up with a warped display, slight bezels. The display will possess a solo lens blow-hole snapper in the top midpoint. You will also find the power key and volume rocker on the right verge. Rendering to our source, the Huawei P50 Pro will land with a 6.6-inches display, and inclusive dimensions of 159 x 73mm. This would build it just about precisely in a similar size as the Huawei P40 Pro.

In another place, a sponsor to Slash Leaks has shared pictures apparently presenting the base model Huawei P50. They express a solo-lens blow-hole snapper in the top left curve of the display. While seems to be a quad lens snapper in a big rectangular setup on the rear. Though, the pictures are rough and appear in a bit low quality. At the time of review, it shows a ‘trust score’ of only 14% from customers of the website. So, we will not only depend on these being precise.

Features and Specs Leaks

At the time of review, we haven’t got enough about the Huawei P50’s features in detail yet. However, just based on the previous record, it’s possibly heading for use the similar chipset as the Huawei Mate P40. Yes, we are pointing towards Huawei’s own chipset the Kirin 9000. It is Huawei’s first original 5nm chipset, a move which has brought about a development in enactment, as you’d presume. We’ve precisely got a rumor that Huawei P50 will also land with this chipset.

However, once we’d also got from Huawei that due to the current Huawei prohibition the company would not use Kirin chipsets. As it will no longer be capable of using the source machinery for them after 2020. That made us a bit cynical about whether the 9000 Kirin chipset will get to the P50 or not. However, the latest gossips recommend that Huawei in fact stock up on adequate chipsets for its upcoming handset. Though beforehand production was clampdown due to limitations get underway by the US. As far as the RAM and storage concern, the standard Huawei P40 landed with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. We don’t imagine Huawei dropping existing RAM on the Huawei P50 range.

Elsewhere, we can also conclude that if effects change in Huawei’s relation with the US, the Huawei P50 may have access to Google Mobile Services. It will probably still work on Android, much similar to other latest Huawei handsets that have the core running setup. Though, it should depend on another-party Apps stores. Though, there’s a possibility that Huawei could instead prepare the P50 series with its own designed Harmony OS. Rendering to Sina, (a main Chinese update website) the Huawei P50 series will operate on Harmony OS.  Though if it is correct, it’s more likely that it will just do so in a few regions of the world.

The Specs We Wish to See

Though we don’t get enough about the Huawei P50, We have prepared a list of specs that we wish to see in the Huawei P50 range.

Google Mobile Apps and Services

Though, Huawei offers good hardware. Its software is frequently probable to missing if or up until it recovers approach to Google Mobile Services. However, we know that it is beyond Huawei’s hands. We are not expecting that it will occur in the case of the Huawei P50’s promotion. But it’s our main expectation for the handset. And if this’s not genuine, then we’d anyhow love to view few big developments to Huawei’s substitute App store. Presently it’s ruthlessly deficient when equating to Google Play Store. It is omitting many popular apps, so we’d love to see Huawei make actual shove to get further designers aboard.

Higher Screen Refresh Rate

Though few handsets for instance the Samsung Galaxy S20 or OnePlus 8 Pro offer 120Hz display refresh rates. Most Huawei P40 handsets offer a 90 Hz refresh rate, while the standard P40 offers just a 60Hz refresh rate. This seems noticeably missing for a top-end phone. Thus, for the Huawei P50 series, we wish Huawei to drive the display refresh rate equal to at least 120Hz. If it can achieve a bigger refresh rate then it will be good enough.

 A Piercing Display

The Huawei P40 offers only an FHD+ screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. Though, the Huawei P40 Pro and Pro Plus improved it with a 1200 x 2640 pixels display. That is a good quality display but it’s not still striking the QHD+ range present on handsets like Samsung Galaxy S20. Provided that these are leading and in many cases top-end phones, we’d expect a modest resolution. Thus, we’d love to see that upgradation for the Huawei P50 series. It is not necessary to go too far. At a definite fact, more pixels won’t do greatly until your eyes are pressed up counter to the display. However, comparing Samsung here will be a good startup. And provided that even the standard Galaxy S20 has a large resolution, we’d love even the standard P50 to do so on top.

Suitable Water Repellant

With the P40 series, Huawei has restricted good water repellence to the P40 Pro and Pro Plus. They both are IP68 qualified, which is in proportion to that of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra or iPhone 11. It means they can persist in submerging in water. The base Huawei P40 though has only an IP53 score that means it should be capable of persisting a gurgle. But not for a long time. For the Huawei P50 series, we want IP68 proficiency to offer crossways the range. If Huawei wants its costlier handsets to be prominent, then it needs to add these specs with more accuracy in its top-end phones. There aren’t many handsets that you can securely take while diving, So possibly the Huawei P50 Pro could stick out in this way.

 Charge Wirelessly

Wireless charging is now becoming more communal in top-end handsets. However, this spec is also present in the Huawei P40 Pro and P40 Pro Plus. But you won’t get it on the base model Huawei P40. Therefore, as becoming more communal between top-end phones, We’d appreciate the base Huawei P50 to provide this.  It will be a big omission if the Huawei P50 will not offer this spec at the time of launch.


Huawei is releasing another top flagship in the form of the Huawei P50 range. Therefore, we are expecting much more developments than the previous series in this future phone. Though, we are hoping for a bigger and decent display with an innovative design along with the finest camera quality in the P50 series. As we got that Huawei P50 will offer more specs than previous models.  If it would prove true then it will cost more than the previous ones.
