It is now 2022, and it has been more than a year since the Huawei Mate 40 series was released on October 22, 2020. Due to well-known reasons, the 5G version of the Huawei Mate 40 series is hard to find. Currently, on the official website of Huawei Mall, the Huawei Mate 40 series machines are all in the state of “not for sale.” Will this continue? The answer is no, because the successor to the Huawei Mate 40 series, the Huawei Mate 50 series, is coming.
There are more and more news about the Huawei Mate 50 series. According to the analysis of Zhang Guobin, CEO of Electronic Innovation Network, the Huawei Mate 50 series will support 5G and use the 14nm production line of domestic RF chips to completely get rid of the blockade restrictions; the Kirin 9000 chip is still used, but it is The last generation, and continues the Kirin + Qualcomm dual version; if the domestic self-developed 5G RF chip triggers the force majeure factor again, the Qualcomm version of the Huawei Mate 50 series will not support 5G.
Three recent blog posts by digital bloggers respectively revealed the release time, some image information and chip information of Huawei Mate 50 series.
The blogger also released a picture of the back of the small-screen version of the Huawei Mate 50 series. The back is still similar to the design of the Huawei Mate 40 series. According to the blogger, the engineering machine has Kirin 9000 chip and Snapdragon 8 Gen1, which further confirms the speculation of Kirin/Qualcomm dual version. Judging from the rear image module of the exposure map, the camera in the middle is most likely a black and white camera used to enhance the image quality, but the position of the flash has not been found.
The Huawei Mate 50 series is also expected to be equipped with HarmonyOS 3.0. In the dynamic responses of social network users, the current developer preview version of HarmonyOS 3.0Beta1 only provides demonstration and pre-adaptation functions, and will not be open to developers for update use. The developer version of Beta2 will open developer updates to improve system capabilities and software and hardware adaptation, and it is expected to start user internal testing in April.
