HUAWEI is currently in a wave of uncertainty about the fate of its smartphone business, thanks in no small part to US trade sanctions that don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. While rumors surfaced a few weeks ago that HUAWEI might sell its flagship brands P and Mate due to the ongoing problems, the company denied these rumors and told us that the company is committed to making high-end phones. Now a new leak indicates it The Chinese smartphone maker is set to launch a new line of flagship HUAWEI P50 series phones next month.
The P50 series is ready for mass production, the final prototype design is locked and will soon be in mass production.

In particular, according to a tipster, the HUAWEI P50 series will be official sometime between March 26th and 28th. Given the starting frame of its predecessor in early April 2020, the leaked launch window for the P50 family doesn’t sound too far-fetched. The company has reportedly completed the prototype design and will begin mass production of the devices shortly. And just like the HUAWEI P40 series last year, there will be three flagship models this time too – the vanilla HUAWEI P50, P50 Pro and a top-of-the-range P40 Pro + model.
Inside are three phones, updated Kirin 9000 series cameras, and processors
In particular, the upcoming flagships will feature some notable improvements, including a better display, a new ultra-sensing camera system, and improved gaming features. As the P series phones, you can assume that the main focus of the HUAWEI P50 trifecta is on impressive photo editing hardware and nice camera tricks. On the software side, however, the phones will rely on the internal HMS core and will not have access to key Google services like Gmail, Google Maps, and Play Store.

This could play a key role in deciding the HUAWEI P50 series’ market availability outside of China. The tipster mentioned that the HUAWEI P50 and P50 Pro will make it to the European market, but availability will be limited. According to a recent leak from the P50 Pro, the upcoming HUAWEI flagship will flaunt a waterfall display that is dramatically curved on the sides and there is a single centered hole-punch to house the selfie camera.
I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years, having worked with names like NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from the latest news, I’ve checked out my fair share of devices that range from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I have also interviewed tech managers and appeared as a presenter on YouTube videos where I talked about the latest and greatest gadgets.
