Today, Huawei officially unveiled its high-end Mate 50 series flagships. This family includes 3 different models, the normal version of Huawei Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50RS Porsche Design. The third model is actually a special version of Mate 50 and is equipped with a periscopic telephoto macro camera.
All 3 Mate 50 series models are equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus 1st generation chip; But the sanctions of the American government have made these handsets, like other Huawei phones, unable to connect to the 5G network. The maximum internal memory capacity of the Pro model is 512 GB, and this handset also supports NM memory card with a maximum capacity of 256 GB.
Huawei Mate 50 Pro is the true champion of the new Mate family. This smartphone uses a 6.74-inch old screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, 10-bit color depth and a resolution of 1212 x 2616 pixels. The strange resolution of the screen is due to the notch built on it. Huawei Mate 50 Pro is equipped with a 50-megapixel main camera with OIS and a 6-blade variable aperture that can be changed from f/1.4 to f/4.0. The ultra-wide camera is equipped with a 13-megapixel sensor and a lens with an aperture of f/2.2; While the telephoto camera is equipped with a 64-megapixel sensor, f/3.5 aperture lens, 3.5x zoom and OIS. It is interesting to note that the telephoto camera uses a RYYB sensor.
The 10-channel multi-spectral sensor and laser auto-focus help the best performance of the handheld camera system. The Mate 50RS Porsche Design uses a 48-megapixel periscopic telephoto camera with macro photography capabilities instead of using a 64-megapixel telephoto module. On the front of the handset, we see the use of a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera with f/2.4 aperture and a 3D TOF sensor for use in the advanced facial recognition system.
The energy needed by Huawei Mate 50 Pro is provided by a 4700 mAh battery with the ability to support 66W fast charging in the wire bed and 50W wireless charging. Advanced emergency battery saving mode allows users to keep their handset in standby mode for 3 hours; Even if only 1% of their phone battery is left.
This handset will be available in blue, orange, silver, black and purple color models. In addition, black and purple color models will be launched in 2 different versions with leather and glass back panel. On the other hand, the Mate 50RS can only be ordered with blue and purple colors along with a ceramic back panel.
Another prominent feature of this family is the satellite connection based on a protocol called Beidou Satellite Message 3. The existence of such a feature basically means that users can send the desired message or their location even if they do not have access to the mobile network.
The normal model of Huawei Mate 50 is equipped with a 6.7-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz; But it still supports 10-bit color depth and has the same image resolution. The main and ultra-wide cameras are similar to the types used in the Pro model and variable aperture is also supported. However, the telephoto camera uses a 12-megapixel sensor, f/2.4 aperture lens and 5x zoom capability. The battery of this smartphone is a little smaller and has a capacity of 4460 mAh; However, users will still have access to the same charging technologies as the Pro model.
The color options available for this model are similar to the Mate 50 Pro, and in terms of software, all devices use the native Huawei operating system known as HarmonyOS 3.0.
