Huawei P50 and P50 Pro: the two new ‘tanks’, with the focus on mobile photography

After falling to sixth place on the list of companies with the most cell phone shipments in the world, Huawei wants to regain ground with him announcement of its flagship P50, which arrive with a 50 megapixel multi camera and own operating system HarmonyOS.

The announcement of Huawei’s P series, which usually makes its appearance in the months after the Barcelona Mobile World Congress in February, had to be postponed until this Thursday due to the Covid-19 pandemic that hit China.

Although it was already announced by the executive director of Consumer Affairs at Huawei, Richard Yu, during the HarmonyOS event in June, P50 Series stands out for innovation in mobile photography, which begins noticing already from the design of the module of the main camera.

The Huawei P50 arrives with a multiple camera led by a 50 megapixel sensor.

A renewed camera module

On the back they stand out two oversized circle that house the main chamber, bearing the signature of the German Leica, one of the world’s leading photographic sensor manufacturers.

The rear ones shine with a uniform color reflection that we see in gold, white and black (with two more tones for the Pro, pink and blue), keeping the color of the module in common with that of the rear. This, as can be seen in the images distributed by the company, distributes three of the lenses in a circumference, leaving the fourth next to one of the flashes.

The company endowed to the P50 Pro model of a multi-camera led by a 50 megapixel sensor along with a 40 megapixel monochrome lens, 13 megapixel wide angle and 65 megapixel telephoto (capable of 3.5x optical zoom and 100x digital zoom).

P50However, it reduces the specs of its main camera to a triple configuration with a 50 megapixel lens, 13 wide angle and 12 megapixel telephoto with 5x optical zoom. In both models the front camera is 13 megapixels.

The two devices differ in other elements, such as the screen. While the P50 has a size of 6.5 inches with Full HD + resolution and 90Hz refresh rate, the latter rises up to 120Hz on P50 Pro (6.6 inch). Both incorporate a on-screen fingerprint reader and a facial recognition system.

They also differ in battery, where there is a capacity of 4,100 mAh in the P50 and 4,360 mAh in the P50 Pro. Both support the 66W fast charge, but only the advanced model incorporates 50W wireless charging.

The design of both terminals is similar, with the front camera in a hole located in the upper central part (in the P40 family it was more elongated and was located in the upper left part), but it varies in some elements, such as the curvature they present the sides of the Pro model.

The two terminals of the P50 family work with the HarmonyOS 2 operating system and Huawei’s Mobile Services, both developed after the boycott applied by Donald Trump in his last years in office as President of the United States.
