A new Huawei Mate phone (NOH-AN50) with 5G and HarmonyOS certified
A new Huawei phone with model number NOH-AN50 has been certified with Telecommunication Equipment’s Network Access Managements (TENAA) in China. According to the listing, the phone has a model number that belongs to the Mate 40 series and in a precise manner, it could be called a sibling of Mate 40 Pro.
The certificate reveals that the Huawei NOH-AN50 has 5G network access for faster internet connectivity, which is quite surprising since Huawei cannot use 5G components. On the other hand, the NOH-AN50 comes with a pre-installed HarmonyOS operating system.
Up until the launch of the Huawei P40 series, Huawei has been facing issues in launching new smartphones without 5G components. Therefore, it’s surprising to see Huawei certifying a new product.
HarmonyOS is a new operating system that comes with a number of new features that enhance the overall user experience compared to EMUI software. These new changes reflect on the user interface and enable a fast performance.
Is this Mate 50:
Probably not, because Huawei could launch the Mate 50 series in early 2022. However, an exact date is yet to be announced. However, there’s more that we need to learn on this matter.

- The display screen has 2772×1344p resolution with a 90Hz high refresh rate

New Huawei Mate phone will launch next year in the global market
Derek Yu, President of Huawei CB for Central and Eastern Europe, Northern Canada & Turkey confirmed that Huawei will launch a new Mate phone next year (2022). This is quite a huge confirmation as all of the consumers are wondering, what Huawei has to offer this year in the Mate segment.
The question took place after several reports hint that Huawei has dropped plans to release the Mate 50 series this year due to U.S. sanctions and their effect in terms of supply chain as well as a shortage of components. Therefore, Huawei is facing hard time in producing new smartphones.
However, there are also some inputs that reveal the phone maker has been trying hard to resolve such component shortage issues and overcome the current challenges. That’s why Huawei has delayed the current launch plans for the new Mate 50 series and delayed it until 2022.
Meanwhile, the Chinese tech maker as a new model that may unveil this month in China as Huawei Mate V, it’s another foldable phone but with a new clamshell design. This new Mate phone will resemble the same old flip phone era and bring you a new kind of user experience.
Still, Huawei has not confirmed any such launch but there are sources that suggest the launch could be imminent. Furthermore, Huawei is likely to reveal more of the detail of its current situation among the global consumers at the event.
There’s more that is needs to be confirmed on this matter, until then we’ll keep you posted.
