Without further ado, meet the Huawei Mate 50 series, which use the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset paired with 8GB of RAM.
Notably, both the Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro will use China’s BeiDou satellite to let you text and use navigation even in areas without cellular coverage.
Both phones use a 50MP main camera and a 13MP f/2.2 ultrawide sensor, but the Mate 50 Pro comes with a camera with 200x digital zoom, while the base Mate 50 has only 100x digital zoom using the lower-res 12MP sensor.
The Mate 50 Pro Porsche edition also has a small difference: the 64MP telephoto lens was replaced by a 48MP periscope lens.
The Mate 50 also has a smaller display, a 6.7-inch 90Hz panel, while the Mate 50 Pro goes to a 6.74-inch panel with 120Hz refresh rate, something that’s expected of a flagship nowadays.
You can expect to see the Mate 50 phones available for sale at the end of September.
They start at around $575 for the Mate 50E, the midrange one with a Snapdragon 778G chipset, $980 for the Mate 50, $575 for the Mate 50 Pro and a whopping $1860 for the luxurious Mate 50 RS Porsche Design.
