Every year Huawei holds two flagship series conferences, that cover first half with ‘P-series’ and second half with ‘Mate-series’. The company has already brought us P20 and P20 Pro in Paris, so the upcoming second half is ready to cover Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.
Ahead of its IFA conference, an image has unofficially appeared on the internet, that reveals Huawei will hold a new product launch conference at IFA 2018 in Berlin, Germany on August 31, at 2 PM Central Daylight Time.
There’s a huge possibility that this poster could be a false count ahead of the official event because Huawei has not announced any news on this image.
It was previously rumored that the new Kirin 980 processor and the annual Mate 20 flagship will be released in a schedule similar to last year as one after another, let’s explore further on the expected launch dates of both products.
First off Kirin 980 SoC Is confirmed to launch in the IFA 2018 conference. After the launch event of Huawei Nova 3 earlier this month, a Huawei official has announced that the development of the Kirin 980 chip is about to reach its ending and the launch conference will be held during the IFA in September.
According to the recent exposure, Kirin 980 uses TSMC’s 7nm process and integrates the second generation of Cambrian NPU. The CPU and GPU cores are further upgraded (currently expected the latest ARM core is Cortex-A76 and Mali-G76), but it is unlikely to adopt self-developed GPU because of the production date. Considering that the Kirin 970 used the A73 core in the CPU part last year, the CPU aspect of the Kirin 980 expected to be more adequate this year.
Moving on to Huawei Mate 20 flagship, the chances of Mate 20 series to appear at IFA conference are quite not possible. After all, the Huawei Mate series is not a kind of flagship that participates in IFA, instead, the company chooses to hold its own conference in Munich. Considering this year’s pace, the company could introduce Kirin 980 first and then Mate 20 series in later month similar to last year which will be equipped with Kirin 980, GPU Turbo Technology and better camera setup.
Let’s have a talk about Huawei’s subsidiary ‘Honor’, a launch poster that has appeared online shows Honor is also planning to launch a new product in Europe set to unveil on August 30. This device could be Honor’s last month installment Honor Play a Gaming phone geared with heavy specs.
Recently a launch poster was also revealed by Amazon India website which shows the launch date of Honor Play in India on August 6. Way ahead of the above-mentioned date but it contains something similar to the promo poster that nearly confirms device’s identity. Honor’s next Note series flagship ‘Note 10’ will be launched on July 31 in China which could also take part at the event in Europe.
Huawei Mate 50 is bringing the notch, which iPhone 14 about drop
Obviously, Huawei is not using the notch for the first time, as it already has been used in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and to mention, and it has been the most popular Huawei Mate device so far.
Initially, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been focused on face id or phone security. The module consists of an RGB camera, dot projector, flood illuminator, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, speaker, and IR camera.
The latter came – Huawei Mate 30 Pro also brought in a notch but it focused on the selfie camera and hand gestures.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro device has completely ousted the notch with pill shape and center hole punch display design and went better for the portrait and gesture controls via the front cameras.
Notch in iPhones:
Yes, iPhones = notch originator, as it was first introduced with the iPhone X lineup and followed in the consequent models – iPhone 11, 12, and 13.
Apple’s concept and technologies behind this notch were to feature face id, it houses – an ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, flood illuminator, infrared camera, microphone, front camera, dot projector, and a speaker.
The technology has been pretty successful. In terms of design, and as compared to the previous model, iPhone 13 has shrunk for a better user experience.
Yet, leaks and rumors have suggested strongly that the iPhone 14 Pro models will come with a pill and punch hole display design to contain all of the required face id sensors.

Return and Exclusion:
On one end – Huawei is preparing to bring back the notch on Mate 50 devices, while on the other end, Apple is about to exclude with iPhone 14. Let’s see the outcome of this return and exclusion scenario, as both of these devices face each other in the first half of September.
Huawei Mate 50 Pro to come with quad camera system, details leaked
Huawei Mate 50 series is once again in the midst of the hot topics list, but this time for the Pro variant. Ultimately, a well-known digital blogger brought his creativity to the Weibo site and described the rear camera setup of the Huawei Mate 50 Pro handset.
According to the reports, the digital blogster @WangzaiIshitong has shared a rough diagram of the Mate 50 Pro camera arrangement. The image is quite sketchy but gives a lot of information regarding the upcoming Pro member of the Mate 50 series.
Huawei Mate 50 Pro – Quad-Camera Hood
As per the image shown by the tipster, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro handset model will carry a quad-camera setup on the rear side. Consequently, the device adopts a circular mount which is similar to our previous renderings of the device.
Besides, this circular bump packs four lenses which are diagonally located against each other. Speaking of the position, the main snapper of the device will take place at the upper right corner in the rounded area. On its side (upper left corner), there is the ultra-wide-angle shooter.
As of the bottom right and left corners, the device has given space to the telephoto lens and a sensor respectively. Aside, the rear camera design also consists of different tiny holes in the circular mounted plateau. As per the beliefs, these could be the LED flash as well as the color sensors to give your snapshots a little more light and detail.
Notably, this image is a reflection of the engineering machine. Perhaps, we can assume that we are moving on the right path with the lens specs of the Huawei Mate 50 series. Furthermore, the blogster also hints at the exterior design of the device. It states that the Mate 50 Pro eliminates the large four-screen curvature and will lead up with a notch curved screen.
Apart from the four lenses of the smartphone, the tipster also mentioned that the new brand of imaging – XMAGE will remove the tag of Leica from the upcoming phones. Thus, instead of Leica, the Mate 50 Pro will stick the logo of XMAGE positioned at the center of all four shooters.
Things are still running under speculations. But we are eagerly looking forward to experiencing the new XMAGE technology and other features that Huawei has implemented on the Mate 50 lineup.
