Whereas 2021 is not going to be regular, we might nonetheless anticipate an annual refresh, so we initially anticipated the Huawei P50, P50 Professional and P50 Professional+ to be introduced a while round March 2021.

The digicam is the a part of Huawei units most anticipated. The corporate beat large rivals like Apple and Samsung to the punch, out-performing most and making a number of the greatest steps in cell images over the previous few years.

A hearsay has instructed that the P50 Professional may home a 1-inch Sony IMX800 imaging sensor, which could clarify why the digicam housing on the rear of this telephone is so giant. Whether or not that major digicam might be in all fashions, we do not know in the meanwhile.

Huawei has for a while been creating its Concord OS. It has been utilized in some units, like sensible TV, up to now, however there’s at all times been speak that this could energy telephones of the long run.
