There is no sign of Huawei Mate 50 X
Huawei has unveiled several flagship devices in the past few years. On the same side, the company has kept introducing new members to its product lineup. However, some of these devices have just broken their link with time. Yes, we are talking about the X series of Huawei that was in expectation to appear in the Mate 50 lineup. But currently, there is no sign on the information.
The Chinese manufacturer is rapidly working on the upcoming dynamic handset model – the Mate 50 series. So far, we heard various rumors regarding the new smartphone and its siblings arriving on the consumer platform. Yet, we didn’t find any piece of information that could hint at the Huawei Mate 50 X model.
The question has also been made by the famous digital blogger @WangzaiIshitong over the Mate 50 X smartphone. Putting the statement on the Weibo page, the blogger hints at the absence of the X series handset for a long time.
Only one X series in these years!
Even, if we go to the flashback, we can only find one X series that belongs to the Huawei product family. This series includes the Mate 20 X and Mate 20 X 5G. Alternatively, the company brought these handsets to the market, three years back.
Till then, the company put a halt to the X series smartphones. Although, the company has labeled its foldable phones and tablets in the X series. For instance, Huawei Mate X, Huawei Mate Xs, and so on. But for some unknown reasons, the company didn’t feature the X tag on its smartphone products.
After the Mate 20 series, Huawei introduced the Mate 30, and Mate 40 lineups. Thinking of the predecessor devices, users were eagerly looking forward to grabbing a new X tag smartphone such as Mate 30 X or Mate 40 X. However, things didn’t go as per expectations.
There is still some time to catch the first-ever glimpse of the Mate 50 series. And in the meantime, the reports keep heading our way regarding the forthcoming model. Will we get the Mate 50 X smartphone this time? Or is it vanished completely? Well, only time can reveal the answer to these questions.
Huawei Mate 50 X, will it come?
