After multiple rumors and delays, the Huawei P50 series has finally made it to the smartphone market in China. This time, the flagship series consists of only phones – regular P50 and P50 Pro. Here, we will be discussing the key specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Huawei P50 and P50 Pro in Nepal.
Huawei P50, P50 Pro Overview:
Design and Display
Huawei P50 Pro series features a curved 6.6-inch AMOLED panel with a center-placed punch-hole cutout. The 10-bit panel supports a 120Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate.
The vanilla P50 has a smaller 6.5-inch panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate.
Huawei P50 Pro
Like Xiaomi and Samsung, Huawei has also redesigned the camera bump for its flagship series. The new Dual-Matrix camera module is one of the most striking features of the series.
Performance and Memory
Huawei has found a unique way to bypass the US-imposed ban. Currently, the US has made it difficult for Huawei to get access to any chipset made by or using American technology. However, few companies like Qualcomm are allowed to supply 4G chips to Huawei. As a result, the Huawei P50 series gets the 4G version of the Snapdragon 888 chipset. It is the same chipset as in other flagship of 2021, but without the 5G modem swapped for a 4G one.
The Pro model is also available with Huawei’s in-house Kirin 9000. Sadly, it also lacks a 5G modem.
Huawei P50 and P50 Pro are the first smartphones to ship with Harmony OS 2 out-of-the-box. It is the latest version of the cross-platform operating system that Huawei is working on.
At the back, both the Huawei P50 and P50 Pro feature the same primary camera. The 50MP sensor has an f/1.8 aperture lens. However, only the Pro has Optical Image Stabilization. The 40MP monochrome sensor is exclusive to the Pro model. P50 Pro also has a 64MP telephoto lens.
The regular P50, on the other hand, has a 12MP telephone lens. It even has OIS. Both P50 and P50 Pro have a 13MP ultrawide camera.
Rest of the Specs
Fueling the Huawei P50 is a 4,100mAh battery. The Pro model gets a slightly larger cell of 4,360mAh. Still, both phones are capable of 66W wired charging and 50W wireless charging. Other features include stereo speakers, Wi-Fi 6 2×2 MIMO, Bluetooth 5.2, in-display fingerprint sensor, to name a few.
