Furthermore, the display has gone through a number of drops and laboratory tests to bring a sturdy and strong feel to the Huawei Mate 50 series.
Yes, Huawei Mate 50 Series is a beauty with a beastly camera system that is launched with various new technologies.
The Huawei Mate 50 has a triple camera system including a 13MP ultra wide-angle camera, 12MP Periscope Zoom 100X digital zoom, and a 50MP main camera with an RYYB colors system. There’s also a laser focus for better portraits.
Huawei Mate 50 Pro and RS are boasted with the same arrangments and different megapixel counts. These two models bring a 50MP main camera but it’s not just an ordinary camera system because it has six-blade variable aperture technology.
So, what does it really do? Well, it allows you to maintain the light to the sensor by allowing you to switch the camera aperture between the largest f/1.4 to the smallest f/1.4. Isn’t that amazing?
The variable aperture tech is used to enhance brightness in the pictures and capture brighter images. The main camera also has OIS to ensure that your images and video stabilize at the peak.
Next is the 64MP periscope zoom with RYYB color matrix and OIS image stability. Huawei promised that the phone offers 200X super zoom with these two later devices, as they maximize the camera capability to the top of the mountain.
Moreover, there’s a 13MP ultra wide-angle camera that also supports macro photography. Furthermore, there are a number of different sensors including the later focus sensor, proximity light sensor, and 10-channel multispectral sensor to improve lighting, color reproduction, and enhance background blur in your pictures.

Huawei Mate 50 series is launched with a beautiful design that you’ll stare at for sure. The rear of Huawei Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro has a large circular camera bump that has eliminated that ring system from the Mate 40 series and expanded the camera system to the farthest.
The edge of the camera system is styled with a diamond-cut texture that looks immersive. On the other hand, the rear panel has a smooth texture that won’t budge into your grip.
Meanwhile, Huawei Mate 50 RS Porsche Design has its own league of design libraries because this phone has its own race track right on the rear side. As compared to the standard and the Pro model, the Mate 50 RS has approached an octagon camera bump that blends into the rear side pretty neat.

Now come to the Mate 50 RS, which has Blue and Purple colors in the primary.
Yep, the Huawei Mate 50 series comes with the XMAGE camera imaging system. According to Huawei, the new imaging technology has been designed and developed after years of research on mobile photography.
As it is constructed on four major technical bases – Light, Device, Electricity, and Computing. These are the key pillar that drives XMAGE into the Huawei Mate 50 series. The new imaging system helps you to take high-quality images, with lots of colors, sharp details, and beautiful vibrance.
The devices are packed with 4700mAh capacity in the Pro and RS version, while the standard version comes with a 4460mAh battery.
Huawei Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro support 66W wired charging, 50W wireless charging, and 7.5W reverse wireless charging. These are quite a good number for the caliber that these devices drive into the consumer’s hand.

New Huawei GOA-AL80U gets 100W charger certification
A new Huawei phone with model number GOA-AL80U has received 3C certification in China with 100W super fast charger and it could be the Huawei Nova 11 Pro smartphone.
According to the information, Huawei GOA-AL80U has 20V/5Ak, which outputs 100W of super fast charging. A week ago, a similar model – GOA-AL80 received 3C certification.
It has a maximum output of 100W (20VDC, 5A) and also backward compatible with 66W (11VDC, 6A) and 10W (10VDC, 2A) charging outputs.
The charger model is HW200500C00 and it is the same charger used in Huawei Nova 9 Pro and later in Nova 10 Pro. Currently, there’s no proof of the identity of this upcoming smartphone tier but it could be the upcoming Huawei Nova 11 Pro. As it’s the only candidate for providing such fast charging output for the consumers.
Huawei Nova 11:
Past input reveals that Huawei could a new press conference on April 17 to launch Nova 11 series, Watch 4, and other smart devices for consumers.
A report shows that Huawei Nova 11 series will consist of three models – Nova 11, Nova 11 Pro, and Nova 11 Ultra. These phones will pack different specs, while the top ones will have ultra-grade technologies.
Huawei Nova 11 devices will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4G chipset and improved network technologies.
Furthermore, these upcoming Huawei Nova devices will also bring satellite communication technology, which could be the first in mid-range smartphones.
Huawei will also upgrade the camera section with a high-quality lens. However, we need to know more information about the camera section of this midrange lineup.
Huawei phones are as valuable as iPhones: Report
Huawei phones are made with the long-standing build quality. Despite two years of launch, Huawei Mate 40 Pro shows that it’s as valuable as iPhones for consumers.
The latest conversation came to light after people on Weibo started a discussion on research by a Chinese firm, BankMyCell. The study shows that iPhone’s depreciation rate is only half of Android’s.
The report is bundled from the year 2021 to 2022, it shows that iPhone retains its value the most. Meanwhile, Android’s value declines the fastest over 1 year of purchase. It even goes down by double digits within two years.
However, users are sharing different opinions on this matter such as: “What’s so good about depreciating Android in the smartphone industry?”
Some of those people said that the value of iPhones is indeed high. But there’s one Chinese smartphone company that can match Apple’s value retention rate and it is Huawei including the Huawei Mate 40 Pro.
According to the handheld smartphone platform, the second-hand price of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is currently up to 7450 yuan (1082 USD). As a phone launched in 2020, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is powered by an “out-of-print” Kirin 9000 chipset and supports 5G.
Additionally, some bloggers said that their Huawei Mate 40 Pro 5G has been used for more than a year. Yet, it can still sell for 3500 yuan (508 USD), which is comparable to an iPhone.
The Kirin is not available on new flagship devices nor the 5G connectivity. Also, the demand for this premium smartphone remained unchanged even after the Huawei P50 series and later Huawei flagship models.
Not only that, it has the fastest and smoothest user experience among all phones released in the same timeline. Therefore, Huawei Mate 40 Pro became the valuable choice for consumers in the Chinese market over Apple’s iPhones.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro specs:
The Mate 40 Pro packs a 6.76-inch display with an OLED panel and FHD+ (2772 x 1344 pixels) resolution. It has a 50 MP ultra vision camera system. There’s a wide front camera setup for better face recognition technology.
Huawei Mate 60 series to use IMX9 super large camera sensor
Huawei could equip its next flagship phone, Mate 60 series with a super powerful IMX9 series camera sensor, says a tipster related to this matter.
According to the information, Huawei started testing IMX 9 series sensor and speculated that the Huawei Mate 60 series could equip with this new super large camera tech. The tipster also mentioned that Huawei’s former subsidiary – Honor is also preparing a new device with the same sensor.
Despite having no clue about the IMX model, we can assume that the sensor may be IMX 989 because it’s the only 1-inch sensor that made it up to smartphones at the moment.
Looking at the advantages, the sensor allows smartphones to carry more room in the camera module as compared to predecessors. On the other hand, the size intake more light to capture bright images with fast readout speed.
The SONY IMX 989 also has a high dynamic range to enable better low-light performance and accurate color reproduction in photographs. While the use of Quad Bayer color filter array improves light sensitivity and reduces image noise.
With this sensor, the smartphone can perform fast autofocus with a combination of phase and contrast detection.
Huawei P60 series:
The latest Huawei P60 Pro is using IMX888, which is a 1/1.43-inch in size. Despite using a less powerful sensor, Huawei has optimized the entire image processing algorithm and improved the output manually.
The effect can be seen in ultra aperture photography. This reflects that Huawei is already using 1-inch sensor quality with IMX888 on Huawei P60 Pro. So, we can also come to the conclusion that Huawei Mate 60 could further empower the capabilities of the IMX9 series beyond stock features.
A past leak reveals that the Huawei Mate 60 series may launch in Q3 2023. It could be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and better camera specs. However, Huawei is yet to announce an official launch date.
