Huawei Mate 50 series is coming and its maker doesn’t want to leave any stone unturned to make this flagship better than ever. Despite many difficulties, Huawei is pushing boundaries to bring the supply chain together and form this lineup and bring it to the consumers.
According to a report, the Huawei Mate 50 series will further enhance the photo quality and enhance it. It’s also revealed that the Huawei Mate 50 series camera system will Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ series chipset and use its ISP to bring you a new photography user experience.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 ISP:
As per Qualcomm, the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has Qualcomm Spectra Image Signal Processor boasts a triple 18-bit ISP, and incorporates over 4,000x more data than the 14-bit ISP, while enabling simultaneous triple capture. You can capture the dynamic range at up to 3.2 gigapixels per second plus over a billion shades of color with 8K HDR video capture.
Currently, Huawei has not confirmed the use of Qualcomm Snapdragon ISP for the Huawei Mate 50 camera but we’re expecting this lineup to unveil in August this year and surely, if it’s using the chipset then, it won’t exclude the ISP. As it is speculated to come in three variants – Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro, and Mate 50 Pro+. Until we get confirmation on this upcoming flagship, let’s take a look at the past Huawei Mate devices along with P50 Pro.
Huawei Mate 40 series:
Huawei Mate 40 series consist of three models – Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and Mate 40 Pro+. The Pro models feature quad and Penta camera systems. However, the only difference between the Pro models is the different zoom ranges. The lineup has:
- 50 MP Ultra Vision Camera (Wide Angle, f/1.9 aperture)
- 20 MP Cine Camera (Ultra-Wide Angle, f/1.8 aperture)
- 12 MP Telephoto Camera (5X, 8X)
- 3D Depth Sensing Camera, support AF
Huawei P50 Pro:
Aside from these, Huawei P50 Pro is the latest and last installment that Huawei has made with Leica, and its camera system includes a 50 MP True-Chroma Camera (Color, f/1.8 aperture, OIS), 40 MP True-Chroma Camera (MONO, f/1.6 aperture), 13 MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera (f/2.2 aperture) and 64 MP Telephoto Camera (f/3.5 aperture, OIS), supports AF.
Huawei will bring a surprise chipset this year: Tipster
2023 brought in new opportunities for Huawei and the tech make is preparing to bring in a surprise in the chipset category, suggesting a well-known Huawei tipster, which seems really exciting.
Classmateguan said that Huawei will work hard to forge ahead in 2023 and the company will craft technologies to resolve issues. However, the company could also bring some small surprises in the chipset, which remains confidential from Huawei.
The tipster hints that the surprise could drop in the second half of this year and it is likely to be a good sign for the Chinese semiconductor industry. To be mentioned, there’s no specific signal about Kirin or HiSilicon. But we can expect a large number of votes going in favor of Huawei SoC.
Chipset Manufacturing Equipment Ban:
According to a Bloomberg report, the U.S. has secured a deal with Netherlands and Japan to tighten access of chipset manufacturing technologies for China. This new move is designed to limit China’s ability to come up with a breakthrough in chip production technology.
Amid this situation, firms such as Huawei are an example of U.S. chip control restrictions and the extent that the U.S. has gone to control Chinese tech makers’ progress in the global telecom market.
Since 2019, the U.S. is continuously imposing restrictions on Huawei. Thereafter, Huawei lost access to Google Mobile Services (GMS) and the ability to print new Kirin chips via Taiwan’s TSMC.
The result of these actions caused a major drop in Huawei smartphone sales and the firm had to announce the ending of Kirin. Thus relying on Qualcomm is the sole option for the company and since 2021, Huawei is using Snapdragon semiconductors for all of its new devices.
It’s good to see what continues to rumble into the world of Huawei and we are eager to know what kind of chipset surprise the company has prepared for us.
