The post-Leica Huawei Mate 50 series is formally launching next month

Huawei has made some extreme time since a US trade was founded against it in 2019. The organization’s phones never again have Google reconciliation while sanctions likewise imply that offering state of the art in-house Kirin processors can’t. That hasn’t prevented the brand from delivering new leader phones however, and the next high-end series is coming soon.

Huawei declared on Weibo that it will launch the Mate 50 series on September 6. It explicitly referenced that this would be a series, so we’re speculating that a standard Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro will be on offer at the very least.

One way or another, this will be Huawei’s first Mate flagship since 2020’s Mate 40 series. The organization skipped a Mate release last year, apparently because of issues connected with the US trade ban.

We have close to zero insight into the Mate 50 family, however it will be the first Huawei flagship line without Leica branding since 2015’s P8 and Mate 8 series. Instead, the organization will utilize an in-house imaging brand named Xmage.

Huawei has additionally changed to 4G versions of flagship Snapdragon chipsets because of its failure to create in-house leader silicon, with the P50 series utilizing the Snapdragon 888 4G SoC. So we’re speculating that the Mate 50 series will be powered by a 4G Snapdragon processor once again.
