Huawei released the P50 and P50 Pro in China on July 29, 2021, and the phones went on sale the following month (August 12). However, we have been waiting for months for the international launch to begin, not to mention the P50 Pro + launch date, which has not been shown in China. In October 2021, the company finally unveiled plans for worldwide release, to say that the P50 series will be launched in the world “early next year”.
It wasn’t until Huawei Malaysia’s Twitter account accidentally mentioned a date of January 12, 2022 (in a tweet posted on January 5) that we did not indicate that we should expect the P50 line to reach the outer coast during the quarter. But the exact date for the international market huawei p50 pro release date is 26 January.
Design and Display
The Huawei P50 has a 6.5-inch flat OLED screen separated by a front-facing camera cut in the middle at the top. The resolution is 1228 x 2700, the refresh rate is 90Hz, and the touch input is 300Hz. The Huawei P50 Pro has the same display specs but is slightly larger by 6.6 inches and has a refresh rate of 120Hz. Unlike the “vanilla” phone, its screen is curved at the edges. Phones look very similar (you remove the display), and the rear cameras are arranged in two big circles. Devices have USB-C holes but no 3.5mm headphone jack.
Huawei phones are famous for their cameras. The standard P50 has three rear cameras: a 50MP main camera, a 12MP periscope zoom, and an ultra-wide-angle lens of 12MP. This is a decent set of cameras with a periscope module that supports 5x optical zoom. The P50 Pro has 64MP telephoto, 50MP main, 40MP monochrome and 13MP wide-angle camera – it’s a high-resolution shot, and the periscope camera provides 200x digital zoom impressive (with 3.5x optical). The front-facing camera on both phones is 13MP, so it’s a little lighter than other shots, but it’s more than what you need to take pictures of yourself.
The Huawei P50 has a 4100 mAh battery, and if you choose the Pro, you get a bigger power bank of 4360 mAh. Both of those numbers seem modest on a flagship phone, so we hope there is some smart software configuration to keep devices running for a good time. Both phones have 66W wireless charging, which is very fast but almost identical to other flags on the market. Huawei p50 Pro also has 50W charging.
Performance and Software
All new Huawei P50 phones use the HarmonyOS 2, a rival of the company’s Android company revealed earlier this year. Granted, the software doesn’t sound like a million miles from Android, but it does make a few changes. First of all, Huawei AppStore has a limited number of apps, though you can get around this by using Petal Search, a way to install other apps on the web. HarmonyOS was designed to work with other Huawei devices, so if you own a company or a smartwatch in the company, you will be able to get the most out of it.
