The Huawei P50 and Pro models were announced this Thursday, with a lot of great features. The new series is off to an excellent start because the Pro model already topped both DxOMark charts for its front and rear cameras! You can also check out the official unboxing video if you want to see more details about these phones in person before making your decision on whether or not they are right for you.
Huawei is launching the P50 Pro, their latest flagship phone and successor to last year’s Mate 10. The vanilla version of the new device will be available in late September while Huawei hasn’t given any indication on international pricing or availability yet but we’ll keep you updated as soon as more information becomes known.
Huawei P50 Pro key features
Huawei has announced the new Mate Pro series, which comes with either a Snapdragon 888 chip or Kirin 9000. The phones will only work on 4G networks and Huawei doesn’t know if there’ll be 5G versions of these models in future releases yet.
Besides the chipsets, the cameras are one of P50’s most interesting features. Both have 50MP sensors with OIS in their main cam and also a color sensor. The Pro-model can rely on fast autofocus with its Laser AF system while there is a 40 MP camera for black & white photography as well. Both models have periscope telephoto lenses but the Pro setup is more versatile; it has a 90mm focal length (about 3x magnification) and a 64MP sensor which allows for high-quality digital zoom!
This is a review of the vanilla model. The 12MP lens has 5x optical magnification, far less impressive than its larger 40 MP counterpart in P40 Pro; however, this still makes for some really great images with crisp details and high contrast quality.
The P50 series borrows the charging system from the Mate 40 Pro – 67W wired and 50W wireless. That’s a solid upgrade over the P40 Pro (40W/27W) and an even bigger upgrade over the vanilla P-phone, which only features 22.5w of power or none at all with its IP53 resistance to dust and water damage without proper protection on board like it’s more expensive counterpart.
The screens on the new iPad Pro are a minor upgrade to last year’s models. They are AMOLED panels that have 450 ppi pixel density, which is not much of an improvement over 2019s 300ppi screen and just 2x what you’ll find in most laptop displays made today. Although they do run at higher refresh rates -120Hz for the Pro (up from 90Hz) and 90 Hz for the vanilla model- it still doesn’t make them anything special compared to other tablets coming out soon or even this time next month!
The screens on Apple’s newest iPad Pros may be less exciting than expected due their small improvements such as increased resolution but slight decrease in response speed when scrolling through web pages etc., plus
When you compare the Huawei P50 Pro to other high-end devices on the market, it’s hard not to be impressed by this all-rounder. With a Snapdragon 888 and 8/128GB of memory costing only CNY 6,000 ($930/€780), upgrading your device with more space for photos is just €100!
There are many things that you can buy for CNY 4,500. For example, a set of five Huawei Mate 20 Pro smartphones with 128GB storage is about the same price as one P50 Pro which has twice the memory and it’s not even advertised on their website yet!
The OnePlus 9 Pro (8/256 GB) starts at about CNY 5,000 matching the vanilla P50 with the same storage. This gets you a 525 ppi AMOLED display with 120Hz dynamic refresh rate and 50MP ultra wide-angle camera that’s more limited than its 8MP 3.3x tele camera counterpart. The rest is fairly similar to Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra (8/256GB).
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra has a 1/1.12” 50 MP main sensor which will set you back around CNY 5,500 starting price for this one as well; it has an even higher resolution ultra wide 48 MP camera to match its 12 megapixel periscope on top of all other specs
