Chinese manufacturing giant Huawei had to work on its latest flagship series for about two years. The reason for the delay is apparently the restrictions on the part of the American Huawei, which had to supply suitable parts and components without violating the ban. A few days ago, the company officially launched the Huawei Mate 50 series. This series comes with four models including Huawei Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro, Mate 50 RS Porsche Design and Mate 50E. After the official launch of the Huawei Mate 50 series, it has really caught the attention of many users. In fact, the first official presale for this series didn’t last very long. Potential buyers had to fight for a unit and a more difficult decision is choosing the right model.

Simply put, many users had no idea which of the models to choose. This is because the Huawei Mate 50 series has four different models with different capacities. Thus, it will naturally be difficult to choose unless you know exactly what you need. Many users also do not know the exact differences between these devices. It also complicates the decision-making process. So this article looks at the main differences between the Huawei Mate 50 series models.

The Huawei Mate 50 series – key differences


The design of the four models in this series is not the same. The low-end Huawei Mate 50 and Mate 50E models come with a central single-hole screen design. This design is quite common in the smartphone market, especially for Android smartphones. In addition, these smartphones also come with a straight screen that ditches the curved screen design. At the back, both the smartphones also use a ring.

The high-end models are the Huawei Mate 50 Pro and Mate50 RS. Both smartphones use a notch design as well as a curved screen. However, Huawei doubles down on the display curve. Regarding the waterfall screen design, the curvature is significantly lower. As for the rear of the fuselage, the Huawei Mate 50 RS has a completely different design. Whether it’s the camera module or the entire back, it’s completely different. However, in terms of rear design, the other three models are not that different.

Screen quality

Starting with the lower model, the Huawei Mate 50E comes with a 6.5-inch OLED display with a single punch hole. This model has the smallest display in the entire series. The display supports a resolution of 2700 x 1224 pixels, a 90Hz refresh rate, as well as a 300Hz sampling rate for touch. In addition, the smartphone supports 1440Hz PWM dimming, 1.07 billion colors, and the plain skinned version uses Kunlun glass.

Huawei Mate 50 uses a 6.7-inch OLED screen, supports 2700 x 1224 resolution and 90Hz refresh rate straight screen. In addition, it supports 300Hz touch sample rate, 1440Hz PWM dimming and 1.07 billion primary color displays. This smartphone also supports Kunlun glass. We can see that in terms of the display, the Mate 50 and Mate 50E are basically the same, only the former is slightly larger.

The Huawei Mate 50 Pro uses a 6.74-inch screen and supports a 120Hz refresh rate. In addition, this device supports 3D structured light technology. Other than these differences, other features are the same. Thus, if you need a device with a high refresh rate, the Pro model should be your best bet.

In the Huawei Mate 50 RS model, its display is similar to the Pro version. However, the Mate 50 RS comes with the industry’s first two-color ceramic technology CeraBicolor. It has a completely different shape from the previous two RS models and is highly recognizable!

Basic configuration

The Huawei Mate 50E uses a mid-range Snapdragon 778G processor. It uses TSMC’s 6nm EUV process. The CPU core is a customized version of the Kryo 670 based on the A78 architecture, with a maximum frequency of 2.4GHz and an integrated Adreno 642L GPU.

The rest of the Huawei Mate 50 series uses the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. Although they don’t use Kirin processors, the reputation of this processor is obvious for all to see. However, it is important to note that none of these devices support 5G network. However, there will be a case that will allow the phones to work with 5G connectivity.


The front camera on all Huawei Mate 50 series models is a 13MP ultra-wide-angle front camera with f/2.4 aperture. However, only the Mate 50E does not support a 3D depth camera.

At the back, the Mate 50E has a 50MP main camera (Sony IMX766, RYYB, f/1.4-f/4.0 variable aperture, OIS) + 13MP (Sony IMX688) super wide angle and supports XMAGE Huawei images.


The Huawei Mate 50 uses a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 12-megapixel periscope telephoto camera, a 50-megapixel super-optical camera and supports laser focus sensors, 10-channel multispectral sensors and has XMAGE Huawei imaging.

The Huawei Mate 50 Pro is equipped with a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 64-megapixel periscope telephoto camera, a 50-megapixel super-optical camera and supports proximity light sensors, laser focus sensors, 10-channel multi-spectral sensors and XMAGE Huawei imaging and others.

The Huawei Mate50 RS has a completely different imaging module. It has a 50MP super optical camera and a 48MP super macro telephoto camera. But overall, the difference is not much different from the Huawei Mate50 Pro.

Both the Huawei Mate50E and Huawei Mate50 have built-in 4460mAh batteries, support 66W wired fast charging, 50W wireless charging, 7.5W wireless reverse charging, and support emergency mode at 1% power.
