The US sanctions and the component shortage forced Huawei to exclude the 5G support from its new flagship phones. This is the one reason, company’s recently launched P50 flagship has all the high-end features except for 5G.
However, recently surfaced information suggests that 5G may return back to Huawei flagship devices with Mate 50 in Q2, 2022. Adding to this, another source reveals that this could happen even sooner.
A well-known Weibo tipster has informed that Huawei phones’ lack of 5G won’t last until the middle of 2022. Therefore, 5G Huawei models may soon return for the consumers but there’s no specific date available.
Furthermore, it was also revealed that the price of the Huawei Mate 40 series will reduce, all thanks to the partial replacement of the accessories. Therefore, the company would be able to sell new models at slightly lower prices.
Price Hike in Second-hand market:
A previous report reveals that the price in the second-hand market touched its all-time high since the beginning of July. This price was expected to decrease with the launch of the Huawei P50 series but this increase hasn’t cooled down a bit.
In the market of second-hand products, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro 5G was in demand over this time period. The growing demand lead increase in price, which was around 6,363 yuan at the end of July. This price was increased by 323 yuan compared to the price in early June.
While the two-year-old flagship, Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G saw a price increase of 293 yuan compared with last month. This device has recorded a 7.71 increase and its current price in the second-hand market is around 4093 yuan.
Why Huawei no 5G:
The previous reports show that Huawei is facing 5G problems technically due to the 5G radio frequency, especially the filter. The wave devices are divided into two different categories as SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) and BAW (Bulk Acoustic Wave).
Most smartphone manufacturers try to use BAW filters in the 5G phones due to the advanced technology and enhanced performance. And the data shows that the Broadcom (AVAGO) of the United States covers around 87% of the market share, while the other US firm also has 8% share.
Moreover, the SAW market is also under the US and Japan. In 2018, the market share of the SAW market was almost in the favor of Japanese manufacturers. Murata of Japan took 47% share and the TDK had captured 21% share.
The data shows that the US has monopolized the core component of 5G. The core 5G radio filter chip is from the United States and due to the sanctions, it’s not possible for Huawei to use these parts in its own smartphones. Thus the Huawei P50 series comes in 4G options and the upcoming Nova 9 will also reportedly lack the 5G connectivity.

There is no sign of Huawei Mate 50 X
Huawei has unveiled several flagship devices in the past few years. On the same side, the company has kept introducing new members to its product lineup. However, some of these devices have just broken their link with time. Yes, we are talking about the X series of Huawei that was in expectation to appear in the Mate 50 lineup. But currently, there is no sign on the information.
The Chinese manufacturer is rapidly working on the upcoming dynamic handset model – the Mate 50 series. So far, we heard various rumors regarding the new smartphone and its siblings arriving on the consumer platform. Yet, we didn’t find any piece of information that could hint at the Huawei Mate 50 X model.
The question has also been made by the famous digital blogger @WangzaiIshitong over the Mate 50 X smartphone. Putting the statement on the Weibo page, the blogger hints at the absence of the X series handset for a long time.
Only one X series in these years!
Even, if we go to the flashback, we can only find one X series that belongs to the Huawei product family. This series includes the Mate 20 X and Mate 20 X 5G. Alternatively, the company brought these handsets to the market, three years back.
Till then, the company put a halt to the X series smartphones. Although, the company has labeled its foldable phones and tablets in the X series. For instance, Huawei Mate X, Huawei Mate Xs, and so on. But for some unknown reasons, the company didn’t feature the X tag on its smartphone products.
After the Mate 20 series, Huawei introduced the Mate 30, and Mate 40 lineups. Thinking of the predecessor devices, users were eagerly looking forward to grabbing a new X tag smartphone such as Mate 30 X or Mate 40 X. However, things didn’t go as per expectations.
There is still some time to catch the first-ever glimpse of the Mate 50 series. And in the meantime, the reports keep heading our way regarding the forthcoming model. Will we get the Mate 50 X smartphone this time? Or is it vanished completely? Well, only time can reveal the answer to these questions.
Huawei Mate 50 X, will it come?
