Huawei has been embroiled in a stalemate with the US government for almost two years. But that hasn’t stopped the Chinese company from building some of the best smartphones out there. The Huawei Mate 40 series, which was launched in October this year, was the first example, Huawei flexing its muscles with some of the best hardware and design for smartphones. And if this new leak is something to follow, it looks like the company will continue to move forward on the same path next year.
Acclaimed leakster Steve Hemmerstoffer shared the first look of the Huawei P50 Pro, a direct successor to the P40 Pro, launched in March this year. A single playback shared by Steve shows the front of the Huawei P50 Pro. One of the key details revealed by the leaks is that the P50 Pro, like its predecessor, will continue to use a cascade display, with the display curved steeply on the sides, while having narrow upper and lower frames. Going further, we can also see that the dual front camera configuration of the P40 Pro has been replaced by a more discreet single-hole camera. According to Steve, the Huawei P50 Pro will have a 6.6-inch display on the front of a body that measures approximately 159 mm high and 73 mm wide.
Eventually, the leak revealed that Huawei P50 Pro will no longer use the magnetic headphones as its predecessor and will instead opt for more traditional headphones.
Details about important hardware such as the chipset, the camera assembly, the battery and the charging speed remain a mystery at this time. In terms of software, Huawei P50 Pro could run Harmony OS 2.0, the latest version of Huawei’s own operating system. However, it is too early to comment on these details. There will probably be more leaks in the coming weeks, so we should have more details about this iconic future smartphone.
