HUAWEI is still months away from launching its next camera-centric flagship – the HUAWEI P50 family. However, tiny pieces of information have already started trickling in. Well, more productive tidbit Steve. H aka @OnLeaks shared what he claims to be a render of the HUAWEI P50 Pro. At first glance, the Chinese smartphone maker seems to be sticking to the P40 series design formula, and we’re not complaining either.
The waterfall ad is here to stay
The leaked HUAWEI P50 Pro render features a dramatically curved display – something the company markets as a waterfall display. The bezels are amazingly thin on all sides, and there seems to be a metallic frame running around the edges. However, some things have changed. The first is the positioning of the selfie camera and the lack of some sensors. The leakster mentioned that the The HUAWEI P40 Pro has a 6.6-inch displayHowever, details about resolution, refresh rate, or other attributes are still a mystery.
On the HUAWEI P50 Pro we see A single snap on the front that is positioned in a circular hole in the center next to the top edge. The implementation is similar to Samsung’s Infinity-O design philosophy that we saw with the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S20. The HUAWEI P40 Pro, on the other hand, had a pill-shaped cutout in the top left corner that contained a 32-megapixel selfie camera and a depth camera that, together with an IR sensor, supported the 3D face unlocking, similar to the Face ID System on iPhones.
The unique vibrating glass earphone system is gone
Another change that will come with the HUAWEI P50 Pro is a physical earbud. “It is also worth noting that Huawei has apparently removed another feature. The magnetic earphone speaker system of the P40 series has been replaced by a standard earphone, ”claims the tipster. The HUAWEI P40 Pro had a magnet on top of the phone that used the glass of the display as a vibrating speaker membrane. You can see it in this teardown video.
According to another leak, the HUAWEI P50 Pro will feature a triple rearview camera system similar to that of the HUAWEI Mate 40 series. However, the P50 Pro will come with an upgraded main camera and an ultra-wide cine camera.
The P-series is a compact camera phone and the P50-series will continue down that path. 159x73x8.x mm size
P30 Pro like front and single center hole.
Camera setting is very Mate 40 like Triple Cam.
New main camera and ultra wide cine camera.
I don’t know about Pro +.

The HUAWEI P-series has demonstrated the company’s expertise in smartphone cameras, and it was not surprising that the HUAWEI P40 Pro + won the Best Smartphone Camera Crown at the Pocketnow Smartphone Awards 2020. We expect that the HUAWEI P50 Pro will delight us again with impressive camera chops.
