Huawei traditionally unveils the P series in the first quarter of the calendar year, but according to recent reports, this might not be the case in 2021. An insider from the Huawei supply chain revealed orders for components are lower this time. Also, there are delays in supplying them, which will affect the overall availability of the devices. The company has gradually supplied parts and components to Huawei P50 series smartphones.
The day before, @Teme revealed that the last prototype design of the Huawei P50 series has been confirmed. Moreover, it is ready for mass production. The three newly designed P50 models include the basic version, P50 Pro and P50 Pro+. Selling points include screen quality, a new super-sensitive rear camera system and brand-new gaming features. In addition, the Huawei P50 may sport HiSilicon Kirin 9000E chips. And the two higher-end models use Kirin 9000 chips.
Since the Chinese company had time-related restrictions before halting work with US companies, its chip subsidiary HiSilicon managed to yield just 8.8 million chips, which should cover the Huawei Mate 40 series, the Mate X2 foldable phone, and the upcoming P50 lineup.
3 size models
Earlier, it was reported that the P50 series will have three-size models. Namely, they are the 6.1-6.2-inch standard model, the 6.6-inch medium cup model, and the 6.8-inch large cup model. The normal version of the Huawei P50 series will use a 90Hz refresh rate screen. And the high-end version will have a 120Hz refresh rate. It may be a top-mounted central micro-perforation design, featuring Kirin 9000 and 9000E chips.
Huawei P40 will be released online globally on March 26, 2020. Moreover, there is still no certain information on whether the P50 series will be released later. A delay for the Huawei P50 series perhaps may be an April ending or May.
