Huawei has been at an impasse with the U.S. government for almost two years now. But that hasn’t stopped the Chinese company from building some of the best smartphones on the market. The Huawei Mate 40 series launched in October this year was the best example of this, with Huawei flexing its muscles with some of the best smartphone hardware and design on display. And if this new leak is anything to go by, it looks like the company will continue to move forward on the same path next year as well.
Famous leakster Steve Hemmerstoffer shared the first look of the Huawei P50 Pro, a direct successor to the P40 Pro launched in March of this year. A single render shared by Steve shows the front of the Huawei P50 Pro. One of the key details revealed by the leak is that the P50 Pro, just like its predecessor, will continue to use a waterfall display, with the screen heavily curved on its sides while having narrow top and bottom bezels. Moving on, we can also see that the P40 Pro’s dual front-facing camera setup has been replaced with a more inconspicuous single-hole camera. According to Steve, the Huawei P50 Pro will show a 6.6-inch display up front in a body measuring around 159mm high and 73mm wide.
Finally, the leak revealed that the Huawei P50 Pro will no longer use the magnetic earpiece like its predecessor and will instead opt for the more traditional earpiece.
Details on important hardware such as chipset, camera assembly, battery, and charging speed remain a mystery at this point. On the software side, Huawei P50 Pro could run Harmony OS 2.0, the latest version of Huawei’s operating system. However, it is too early to comment on these details. There will likely be more leaks in the coming weeks, so we should have more details on this next flagship smartphone.
