Today was the big day, the Chinese giant has presented the Huawei P50 and Huawei P50 Pro, two smartphones that, frankly, bring a major design change as well as attractive, but unfortunately do nothing more than emphasize that the company is not going through its best moment, and is being forced to give ground in the international market.

I don’t speak without reason. For a giant like Huawei to fall out of the top 5 sellers internationally may seem understandable to me, always taking into account all the problems it has suffered after the US veto, but for it to fall out of the top 5 sellers in China is already something worrying. I’m not going to delve into this topic, as it would give to write a separate article, but I am clear that Huawei has to find a way out, and that this way out involves negotiating to get the end of the veto, under a realistic perspective it has no other option.

Going back to the Huawei P50 and Huawei P50 Pro, we have two top-of-the-line handsets that, in my opinion, debut one of the best designs I’ve had the opportunity to see in a smartphone. I really like the integration of the cameras in two circles on a vertical island with rounded tops that Huawei has adopted, and the front of the Pro model, with that curved finish on the sides, gives it a very nice touch. What can I say, I like this kind of finishes since Samsung started betting on them with the Galaxy Edge series.

As far as build quality is concerned, during the presentation event it was not specified what kind of materials the Huawei P50 and Huawei P50 Pro use, but most likely they will come made of aluminum and glass, a combination that has been established as the industry standard for a while now when it comes to premium smartphones.

Huawei P50 y Huawei P50 Pro, un paso atrás que confirma los problemas del gigante chino 30

Specifications of the Huawei P50 and Huawei P50 Pro

The two models start from a common base both in terms of design and hardware, although at the same time they have very clear differences. The Huawei P50 will only be available in one version configured with a Snapdragon 888 4G SoC, while the Huawei P50 Pro will be launched in two versions, one with the same SoC, and another one with a Kirin 9000 4G.

Yes, you read that right, both handsets will be limited to 4G, something difficult to understand given that those SoCs are prepared to work with a 5G modem. We don’t have an official explanation, but I have a hunch that it could be related, in whole or in part, to the US veto. In any case, there’s no doubt that this is a major step backwards (the Huawei P40 offers 5G), and launching top-of-the-line handsets in 2021 that are limited to 4G is, to put it mildly, a mistake.

This detail is, without a doubt, one of the most important to keep in mind when analyzing the new Huawei P50 and Huawei P50 Pro, so I didn’t want to overlook it. Now that we’re clear on that, we’re ready to jump in and take a look at its key hardware-level specs.
