Huawei Mate 50 launch postponed to next year

Chinese company Huawei is having a rough time. Due to the imposition of sanctions by the US government on Huawei, it lost access to most partners and suppliers and practically left the market. However, despite all the difficulties, Huawei still released the flagship Huawei P50 series. Now the company is preparing to release a new generation of another flagship line. Yes, yes, we are talking about the Huawei Mate 50 line, the launch of which, according to insiders, has been postponed again.

Huawei was expected to release the Mate 50 series before the end of 2021. However, now information has appeared on the Web that the official announcement of the line has been postponed to the beginning of next year. This was stated by a Chinese authoritative source, commenting on rumors about the cancellation of the Huawei Mate 50 series. He also revealed some of the features of the upcoming flagships.

According to the source, the launch of the Huawei Mate 50 series will take place in the first half of next year. The most likely date is called the end of the second quarter, that is, new flagships may debut early next summer. The representatives of the Huawei Mate 50 series will be based on the future flagship chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 898. True, it will be a 4G version of the chip, which means that one should not count on the appearance of support for work in fifth-generation cellular networks. But the new flagships can get support for satellite communications in the case when conventional cellular communications are not available. Thanks to this function, it will be possible to keep in touch using SMS messages. It is reported that for the implementation of the new chip in Huawei Mate 50, the manufacturer chose the Beidou satellite system and it was the implementation of this function that caused the postponement of the launch of the new flagship smartphone.

Previously, information appeared on the Web that the new flagships of Huawei Mate 50 will be equipped with OLED screens made using LTPO technology using low-temperature polycrystalline silicon. The same technology is used in the production of displays for the recently announced iPhone 13 Pro series of smartphones. The fact that Huawei Mate 50 models will be equipped with LTPO screens could mean that they will receive support for adaptive screen refresh rates up to 120Hz.
