The global debut of Huawei’s P50 series has been confirmed, according to reports. The Chinese manufacturer’s new smartphone series will be available in China on July 29. It’s rumoured to contain Leica optics and HiSilicon Kirin 9000 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processors. The Huawei P50 series is expected to include the Huawei P50, Huawei P50 Pro, and Huawei P50 Pro+, as well as the Huawei P50. A quad rear camera array and a periscope lens are probable on the top-end model.
Citing a company representative in Finland, GSMArena reports that the Huawei P50 series will launch globally. Exact details about the launch are yet to be revealed, though.
Earlier this week, Huawei took to Weibo to confirm that its P50 series is debuting in China on July 29. The company also released a teaser video that shows off the Leica-backed optics and a 125mm periscope lens with an f/3.4 aperture on one of the Huawei P50 models. The Huawei P40 Pro+ was also launched last year with a similar 125mm lens that enabled 10x optical zoom.

Huawei’s P50 series is also rumoured to include an unique liquid lens technology for millisecond-level focussing. Hole-punch displays and 5G capabilities are also expected in the company’s future smartphone models. Huawei’s own HarmonyOS is also expected to give certain customised experiences.
The China variants of the Huawei P50 series are expected to have the Kirin 9000, but the global models could come with the Snapdragon 888 SoC. There could also be some 4G-only models specifically for global markets.
Last year, Huawei launched its P40 series in China that included the P40, P40 Pro, and the P40 Pro+. All those three phones came with 5G connectivity and had the Kirin 990 SoC. Huawei also expanded its P40 series with the P40 4G variant in March this year.
