Huawei is all set to come back with its premium flagship category with Huawei Mate 50 series smartphones. It is being reported that phones in this lineup will be launched in the first quarter of 2022 with no specific timeline.
Huawei Mate 50 series to launch in Q1 2022 with Snapdragon 898 and LTPO Display
If we consider previous releases of the Mate series, the launch of the Mate 50 series is likely expected in March 2022 sometime.
Earlier, the Huawei Mate 50 series phones were supposed to launch sometime this year, but given that the P50 lineup was founded in July this year, much late than its usual timeline of March, the launch of the next-generation Mate series phones was then postponed.
The smartphones in this lineup are expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chipset. The chipset doesn’t have 5G functionality, which means this phone will miss the 5G support.
As far as Snapdragon 898 chipset is concerned, it will be manufactured by Samsung using a 4nm process using a three-cluster architecture design. This flagship processor is set to be available officially in December 2021. The 4nm process will make it more efficient in terms of performance and battery consumption too.
Huawei Mate 50 may carry the LTPO display same technology used by Apple in their flagships, including iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. This could potentially mean that a 120Hz high refresh rate will be supported in Mate 50 series.
Take this information with a pinch of salt, but the phone is expected to have satellite connectivity support when a cellular network is unavailable. Using this technology, consumers can use short message services where cellular network is unavailable, for example, in remote areas. The company will be using Beidou Satellite System to offer satellite connectivity for its customers.
