With the introduction of the Huawei Mate 50 series smartphones, Huawei, the Chinese smartphone company, is preparing to reclaim its position in the premium or flagship category.
The company has not stated when the phones in this series will be launched, and rumors now claim that they will be available in the first quarter of 2022. According to previous reports, the release is expected to occur in March 2022.
The Mate 50 series was initially anticipated to debut in the third quarter of this year, but owing to the P50 lineup’s release in July, which was much later than its usual schedule of March, the launch of the next-generation Mate series phones was postponed.
Huawei Mate 50 series powered by Snapdragon 898 SoC
The Mate 50 series is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 898 chipset. Unlike previous smartphones that used this processor, the Mate 50s will not feature 5G connectivity.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC will be manufactured by Samsung using its 4nm process and three-cluster architecture design. The flagship processor is set to go official next month, i.e. December 2021.
The device is anticipated to feature an LTPO display, which is the same as the Apple iPhone 13 Pro series’ adaptive refresh rate. This might imply that the phone will support an adaptive refresh rate and a high refresh rate of 120Hz.
It might also come with support for satellite connectivity in the event that the cellular network is down. In the event that a cellular network isn’t accessible, short message service (SMS) messages will be transmitted via satellite connection. The Beidou Satellite System has been chosen for this purpose by the business, according to reports.
