Huawei Mate 50 series is the new star-mark topic to discuss these days. And as we are getting closer to the launch date of the flagship model, more and more rumors are appearing our way. At this point, the new information suggests that Huawei Mate 50 devices is going to equip LTPO 1-120Hz refresh rate and a flexible display panel.
As per the hints of Weibo blogger @DigitalChatStation, Huawei Mate 50 and the Mate 50 Pro devices will use a flexible BOE screen that is supportive of LTPO technology. Besides, it will exhibit an adaptive refresh rate of 1-120Hz.
The tipster also signifies that the new diamond-like high-score display is capable of flourishing a high-frequency dimming of 2160 PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation). Further, the display binds a Q9 substrate that ultimately reduces the power consumption by up to 15 percent over previous generation devices.
On the flip side, the LTPO tech increases the DCI-P3 color gamut to 116%. As a result, the colors and other display contents would be much sharper, and more vibrant than before. Moreover, concerned with how the technologies negatively affect our eyes, this display lessens the harmful blue light up to 6.0 percent, which will be quite efficient for the users.
What is LTPO Screen?
After learning so much about the display of the Mate 50 series, you might be wondering what the LTPO refers to. Well, LTPO stands for low-temperature polycrystalline oxide. In simple words, it is a backplane display tech, used for OLED panels that coherently change their refresh rate without any additional touch-ups.
Fortunately, it is a blessing in the display technology that lets you enable both – a high refresh rate and resolution without consuming much battery of your device.
Huawei Mate 50 with LTPO – a competitor for Apple iPhone Pro-Motion!
As mentioned, Huawei Mate 50 is a constant subject of discussion among users. But, something else that has equally grabbed our attention is the silent war between Huawei Mate 50 and Apple iPhone 14 lineup. And in this competition, Huawei Mate 50 LTPO tech is a tough contender against Apple iPhone Pro-Motion.
What is Apple iPhone Pro-Motion? It is a productive screen technology that automatically enables the display to refresh up to 120Hz for a smoother appearance. While the standard refresh rate can update a display just 60 times in a second, the Pro-Motion effect offers 120Hz at twice the speed.
And seems like, Huawei is quite close to beating the upcoming iPhone series in terms of display!
Huawei Mate 50 series – New Display, New Design
Huawei Mate 50 will step down on the consumer platform with a center hole punch display design. It will showcase a flat surface with a shiny glass impression. Meanwhile, the Pro version will exhibit a curved edge screen and notch on its front face.
In terms of tech, it’s reported that Mate 50 members will use the LTPO-supported BOE display panel which will increase the service life of the device by 10%. However, things will get the confirmation tag on the launch day.
We also came to know that Apple iPhone 14 series will come into existence on the same date as of Mate 50 lineup – September 7. It will be a dynamic moment to catch the two most awaited devices on the exact day. Yet, there are chances that Huawei might change the date and make it a little earlier. Let’s see what we will grab initially, in the time ahead.
