2020 is passing very fast, as if in the blink of an eye, we ushered in 2021. In the past 2020, Huawei has encountered the problem of the lack of cores. Since the third quarter, the sales of Huawei’s mobile phones have fallen sharply, and even the son of glory has been sold as a last resort. Despite this, Huawei has released the Huawei Mate40 series because Huawei’s Kirin 9000 chips are very limited and can only be sold in limited quantities.
Huawei Mate40 series is still hard to find at present, but after the Spring Festival, the Huawei Mate40 series will not be so difficult to grab as soon as March, because Huawei’s new generation of P series flagship-Huawei P50 series will be released. Recently, the industry has released a rendering of Huawei P50 Pro.
It can be seen from the rendering that the HUAWEI P50 Pro uses a hyperboloid screen, but it is not double-punched like the Huawei Mate40 Pro. Instead, like the Huawei Mate40, it uses a centered single-punch design with a higher appearance.
The Huawei P50 series still continues the named pipe of the previous generation of products. There are three models: Huawei P50, Huawei P50 Pro, and Huawei P50 Pro+. The body sizes are 6.1-6.2 inches, 6.6 inches, and 6.8 inches, respectively. The screen-to-body ratio is higher than that of P40. Improved.
Huawei P50 Pro may be the world’s first launch with a brand-new [liquid lens]. The dielectric liquid lens applied to the P50 series is a dielectric liquid lens that can change the shape of the liquid through different voltages to control focus imaging. Liquid lenses can also avoid problems such as blurring of the edges of traditional lenses, and at the same time achieve the same millisecond-level focusing as the human eye.
The zoom performance of Huawei mobile phones is already excellent enough. HUAWEI P40 Pro+ and HUAWEI Mate40 Pro+ can achieve up to 10x optical zoom and 100x digital zoom. The only problem is that when the optical zoom exceeds 10x, the photos will become more and more blurred, and the focus will become very difficult. The advent of the liquid lens has brought Huawei’s camera capabilities to the next level.
In terms of core performance, the HUAWEI P50 series, as Huawei’s flagship in the first half of 2021, is likely to use Kirin 9000 chips. The newly released HUAWEI Nova8 and HUAWEI Nova8 Pro both use the Kirin 985 chip, even the Kirin 9000E is useless. This is also to keep more “inventory” for the P50 series. After all, in a special period, the Nova series is far less important than the P series, and the chip is almost understandable by users.
Huawei P50 series will definitely continue to use Huawei Kirin 9000 chip, P50 is equipped with Huawei Kirin 9000E, HUAWEI P50 Pro and HUAWEI P50 Pro+ are equipped with Kirin 9000 chip.
The hardware strength is not bad, and the software must have new breakthroughs. On December 16, 2021, the HarmonyOS 2.0 mobile phone developer Beta version will arrive as scheduled. Huawei officials are confident in the HarmonyOS mobile version: “Since we have made the developer Beta version, this shows that we are ready.” After months of development and optimization, it is also time to pull HarmonyOS out and Android , IOS is up against each other, and this Huawei P50 series is also expected to become Huawei’s first mobile phone equipped with HarmonyOS system.
The P series has always been cheaper than the Mate series. Taking the 8GB+128GB version as an example, the prices of HUAWEI Mate40 and HUAWEI Mate40 Pro are CNY4999 and CNY6499, respectively, while the prices of HUAWEI P40 and HUAWEI P40 Pro are CNY4488 and CNY5988, which is cheaper than NCY500. . Of course, the price of Huawei’s flagship phones has also been rising. Huawei spends very high R&D expenses each year, so the HUAWEI P50 series may also increase in price.
But we have reason to believe that even if the price of the HUAWEI P50 series increases, the domestic price will at least not exceed the Mate40 series. When buying a mobile phone, you are buying new and not old. In the case of the same price, the P50 series is undoubtedly more cost-effective.
So, when will the Huawei P50 series be released? The fastest is in March and the latest is April or May. The previous generation model Huawei HUAWEI P40 series was released on March 26, 2020. According to the rhythm of one year, the P50 series will also meet with us at the end of March.
However, the HUAWEI Mate40 series has been delayed for more than a month, so the HUAWEI P50 series may reach the end of April or even May. Regardless of the delay, the release in the first half of the year is quite stable.
Write at the end. Regarding the long-rumored “liquid lens”, I personally think it is impossible, only my opinion. Compared with the traditional lens shift zoom, the liquid lens can change the arc like the human eye to achieve automatic zoom. Huawei has even submitted related patents for the liquid lens. However, the poor optical characteristics (dispersion and distortion) of liquid lenses cannot be solved. The rumors of Huawei using liquid lenses are not a day or two. In fact, the rumor that mobile phones are equipped with liquid lenses has a history of more than ten years. A classic rumor, the possibility of P50 carrying is very slim.
