Huawei has announced that it will hold a new product launch conference on September 6. At this event, the company will officially introduce the flagship of the Huawei Mate 50 series. This new flagship series already has the Chinese 3C certification. This indicates that the company is already making final preparations before the official launch of the series. The 3C certification website reveals that there are three models in total. One of the model numbers is CET-AL00 and all models support 66W fast charging. This means that this year the Huawei Mate 50 will have a fast charging specification for the entire series.

The three models in this series are likely to be the Huawei Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50 RS Porsche design. Among them, the Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50 RS will use the notched solution. However, compared to the iPhone notch, the Mate 50 notch can achieve richer features and stronger gameplay.

From a poster showing the rear camera module, we can see that the camera of the Huawei Mate 50 series remains one of the biggest highlights. The company will launch its own imaging brand, XMAGE, with the Mate 50 series. XMAGE will replace Leica. Meanwhile, the Mate 50 Pro and above will also use a periscope telephoto lens and a variable aperture main camera lens.

Huawei Mate 50 Pro supports variable aperture

The official announcement of the Huawei Mate 50 series launch date has caused excitement among Huawei fans. Since the announcement, there have been many revelations regarding this upcoming flagship series. One of the leaks is an image of the rear camera design. Although we can’t make out much from it, netizens were able to spot that this device will support variable aperture. Actually, this is not a new technology. Back in the era of the Samsung Galaxy S9/S10, Samsung equipped its flagship with a variable aperture.

For example, the Samsung Galaxy S9 series released in 2018 supports F1.5/F2.4 two-speed variable aperture. The physical resizing of the lens is accomplished by the “frame” on the outside of the lens. Only frame shrinkage needs to be adjusted. This way, the lens can better fit the environment and take better pictures. It will be able to open the aperture at night and reduce the aperture in bright light. This can make it avoid the dilemma of viewing certain scenes with one aperture.

According to Huawei’s previous variable aperture patent, the Mate 50 Pro’s aperture also applies similar technology, by adjusting at least 6 aperture blades to achieve aperture changes. However, although this technology looks beautiful, because the adaptation of Samsung’s software and algorithms was too much, it was “ungrateful”. It only lasted for two model generations and was completely canceled in the S20 series.

However, with Huawei’s XMAGE as well as the HarmonyOS 3.0 system, its optimization of this feature will be much better than Samsung’s. It will most likely offer a better experience and may take this technology forward.

Ren Zhengfei – Huawei Mate50 will boost market confidence

Although Ren Zhengfei believes that Huawei must first survive, the current situation is not so bad. At least Huawei mobile phones are back in full force. It is also fully stocked for its new generation of flagships. In the context of many Android manufacturers cutting orders, this will really help boost industry morale.

In this regard, Tianfeng International analyst Kuo Ming-Chi claimed that if the Huawei Mate 50 market responds well, it will boost the domestic high-end mobile phone market. This will also reduce the impact of the down cycle in the consumer electronics market and increase the confidence of the entire market.

According to data from QuestMobile, in the ranking of the number of active devices in China’s smart terminal market in June 2022, Huawei’s mobile phone number is still first, accounting for as much as 25%.

In the supply chain, Huawei’s orders increased by about 20% in July. This is contrary to the general trend of decreasing orders. From the perspective of the upstream supply chain, the Mate 50 is an important model in the Android camp this year, covering the mid-range to high-end series. If it can open up the situation, it can boost the sales of the Android camp to a great extent. Previously, many Android mobile phone manufacturers cut orders one after the other, and even Samsung lowered its supply target for this year. If the Huawei Mate 50 series can wake up consumer consumption, it will be a great boost and benefit to the whole camp.

The Huawei Mate 50 processor series has been confirmed

The Huawei Mate 50 series has been confirmed to launch on September 6. According to popular Weibo tech blogger, @DCS, the Huawei Mate 50 series processor is Snapdragon SM8425, codenamed Waipio LTE, which is Snapdragon 8 Gen1. This means that the Huawei Mate 50 series will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. This is the chip that uses Samsung’s 4nm process. Although there is not much difference between Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 in terms of general parameters, Samsung and TSMC’s 4nm process is still significantly different. The latter has better heat control and performance.

However, the Huawei Mate 50 series will still be equipped with dedicated 4G chips and cannot support 5G networks. According to supply chain sources, third-party manufacturers have developed 5G mobile phone cases in a targeted manner. These are considered additional resolution decisions Huawei Mate 50 series to use 5G networks via plug-ins.
