Huawei P50 Series: Release Date, Price, Specs & more

By LucyEva 3 months ago

Huawei, indeed, experienced a lot of pressure back in 2020 due to an ongoing US sanction but P40 alongside its elder brothers got a title of “One of the best smartphones of 2020.” Regardless of this ongoing US sanction, Huawei has all set to surprise its audience once again with its Huawei P50 in Australia which is likely to come with P50 Pro and Pro Plus.

With this upcoming flagship smartphone series, Huawei seems to give a severe competition to its rivals like Samsung, Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo and of course OnePlus. Very much like Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro of 2020, P50 appears to house marvellous and quality-oriented camera lenses as well as gigantic battery.

What else would this phone bring along? Here on this page, we’ve compiled all the possible details like its release date, expected price, features and specifications based on rumours and suggestions. So, let’s keep going!

Huawei P50 Series Release Date

 

Without a shadow of a doubt, Huawei always strives hard to cover its homeland China first and foremost. Interestingly, 2021 with P50 line wouldn’t be different. However, those in Europe, Asia, Australia and other parts of the world may face a little bit delay.

The last year’s P40 smartphone arrived back in March and according to sources, Huawei P50 Release Date in Australia is said to be March 26th with a stock availability somewhere in April or May 2021. That’s exactly happened with the P40 of 2020 and something similar to be seen with P50 as well.

Huawei P50 Series Price

Well, it’s quite safe to have some hopeful predictions when looking at Huawei P50 and P50 Pro Prices in Australia. We didn’t see a massive jump in 2019’s P30 and 2020’s P40 lines. The P30 smartphone was priced at approx. AU$1100 whereas and P40 set users back a little more AU$1595.

Huawei has been struggling hard to keep maintaining its position in the world of smartphone. Therefore, we are expecting to see only a minor hike in price. To be honest, exact pricing details aren’t yet known but based on P40 that arrived with a price tag of AU$1100, Huawei P50 Price is most likely to be somewhere in between AU$1150-1250.

Huawei P40 Pro and Pro Plus arrived at AU$1590 and AU$2499 respectively. Therefore, P50 Pro and P50 Pro Plus are likely to have a small steep in price. Whenever they arrive, P50-series of 2021 will definitely be more attractive and gorgeous as compared to its predecessors.

The Name

Very much unlike Samsung’s Galaxy S21 smartphone, there is a debate on what will be the name of this flagship phone. Huawei always seemed to enjoy marking its devices by “10” – therefore, we are expecting P50 series to leave P40 line behind and succeed.

Like 2020, it can be a good idea to expect three different models which may include a standard “P50,” “P50 Pro” and a more premium and super-expensive “P50 Pro Plus.”

Huawei P50 Series Design

 

It’s still a mystery though! Alongside Huawei, a wide number of online platforms haven’t yet even rumoured and suggested a complete design of Huawei P50. However, details have started appearing slowly.

The first leaked render was shared by an online source on December 31st 2020 in which everyone can clearly notice a lot of design resemblance with Huawei P40 Pro including curves on the display edges. But there are some notable differences as well.

A huge 6.6-inches display is likely to comprise a dual punch-hole on the top left side of the phone for housing a camera. It’s also said to come back with an old traditional earpiece configuration rather than going for a magnetic technology that we have seen in P40 line.

Other Specs and Features

Aside from a bunch of shared images and a 6.6-inches display, we don’t have enough information regarding Huawei P50 specifications and features. However, based on what we saw in the last two years, Huawei appears to use its own Kirin 1000 5G Chipset. If it turns out to be true, this chipset will lead to a number of improvements in performance, undoubtedly.

Quite a few well-recognised and highly admirable online sources have also confirmed that Huawei will use Kirin 1000 5G Chipset but Huawei, due to an ongoing ban, decided to stop using Kirin chipset and hence, it’s most likely to be no longer available in the upcoming devices.

That’s quite confusing. Isn’t it? Well, there is absolutely nothing than waiting for a month or two to get the exact information from Huawei. The latest reports have confirmed that since the US imposes limitations, Huawei actually stocked a huge number of chips for its upcoming flagship devices before the development was shut down.

Frankly speaking, the issues of Huawei with the United States don’t seem to be resolved, therefore, the Huawei P50 and P50 Pro smartphones won’t be equipped with Google services and applications.

Similar to the other recently released Huawei smartphones, P50 will be running on Android 11 operating system which will be the core OS alongside 3rd party App Store.

What We are Expecting?

  • Google Services

Without access to Google Services and Applications, a smartphone can never be completed regardless of its hardware and software. Unfortunately, it’s neither in Huawei’s hands nor we are optimistic about it sooner or later. However, P50 should be loaded with a wide number of improvements regarding alternative app store as currently, it’s lacking multiple things as compared to Google Play Store. And importantly, a plethora of popular apps aren’t available.

  • A Display with 120Hz Refresh Rate

120Hz refresh rate is already available in Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8 Pro whereas Huawei P40 lacked that feature which feels a bit disappointed. We are expecting the upcoming P50 series to be loaded with 120Hz refresh rate or even higher than that to take the enjoyment to the next level.

  • A Punchy and Vivid Display

The P40 flaunts FHD+ 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution whereas P40 Pro is much better with 2640 x 1200 pixels. The thing is that so far any phone of Huawei hasn’t hit Samsung Galaxy S20’s resolution – 1440 x 3200. Thus, it’s quite important to expect a competitive resolution in order to give them a tough time in the world of smartphones.

  • Wireless Charging

With countless phones in the market with wireless charging, this feature has become quite common. Although it’s being offered in P40 Pro and P40 Plus but a standard P40 is an exception. So, since a wireless charging feature is more common nowadays, we are expecting P50 to be equipped with this feature.

We are almost 30 days into another exciting and smartphones-enriched year with mind-boggling devices and completely-baked features.

Well, Huawei P40 isn’t quite old and still shining on stores not only in Australia but other parts of the world too. The P40 and P40 Pro both are a complete package in terms of camera configuration.

Disclaimer: The above specifications, release date, pricing details, rumours and suggestions are entirely based on what online sources have confirmed.

Well, we are keeping an eye on it and as soon as more details drop, we will have this page updated.
