huawei mate 50 screen protector

Huawei Mate 50 series is the next generation of Huawei flagship and the company has fastened up the pace to launch this smartphone lineup among consumers. The latest screen protector leak on this matter, suggests that Huawei Mate 50 Pro could leave the large waterfall design and may feature a notch system.

According to the information, a tipster from Weibo (8090DigitalMeishi) has shared a screen protector, which, according to the tipster, belongs to Huawei Mate 50. What’s more interesting is that the screen protector reveals some key information regarding the Mate 50 design, this includes the curvature on the left and right sides and a small cutout on the head.

By looking at the leaked Huawei Mate 50 Pro screen protector design, we can see that the curvature is not waterfall and it’s just a simplified version, similar to what we’ve seen in Mate 20 Pro. On the other hand, the cutout on the head could relate to the earpiece system, and not being confusing it’ll lead to the return of the Notch system.

Exploring further, the display has low bezels on each side, making the display more enjoyable but if Huawei is going to use the notch system then how much it would cover the display.

Talking about the notch, the Huawei Mate 20 series was the first to adopt such a front camera design that houses different types of lenses. These are:

  1. A front camera
  2. Dot projector
  3. Flood Illuminator
  4. Proximity sensor
  5. Ambient light sensor
  6. IR Camera

Yes, the notch is kind of sophisticated, and it was quite an impressive inspiration from Apple’s face id but there was some issue that has been found after the launch of the Mate 20 series, which has lowered, Huawei’s belief in this system. The Chinese tech maker pursuit the same concept on Mate 30 notch.

Therefore, the company later focused on features such as a front depth camera and not face security. The Chinese tech maker has also made a revolution on the front camera gesture features, which have not been used before.

Huawei Mate 50 is far away from the launch date, but previous reports have speculated this phone series unveil in August. If you want to learn more about the Huawei Mate 50 series, check the article linked below.

samsung copycat apple

Samsung is a copycat, said an Apple official in a recent documentary published by WSJ about the evolution of the iPhone ahead of the iPhone 14 launch event. The documentary features Apple’s Chief of Marketing – Greg Joswiak, along with iPhone co-creator Tony Fadell and a family of iPhone users.

Aside from talking about the innovation that Apple made so far in the world of iPhones, some criticism had also been made on Samsung and Android. Joswiak said, they (Samsung and Android) were annoying and accused them of copying Apple-developed technologies to feature on their own smartphones.

He told that Samsung became a copycat and ripped Apple’s technology and created a poor copy of it on a big display, which was unpleasant to watch for Apple staff.

Back in 2013, Samsung launched its big screen device Galaxy S4 with a 5-inch display, on the same year, Apple unveiled iPhone 5 with a 4-inch display. Later on, Apple realize to increase the size of their phones, thereafter, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus was launched with over 4.7 and 5.5-inch displays respectively.

Legal fight:

Apple didn’t stop at complaining regarding this entire scenario, as it dragged Samsung to a legal filing,  which later coasted Samsung to pay over 1 billion USD in fine. However, Samsung requested to lower the fine and two of the firms later settled this matter.

Display:

Throughout the years, Samsung has profound its ability to make OLED, QLED, and LCD displays, and Apple since then has been a big customer to purchase the display from the South Korean tech maker.

Both the companies rival the smartphone market but still, the business standards are up on the right place for each other.

That’s not it, Samsung has also innovated the world’s first foldable display devices. These are key technologies for the future and Apple is likely to grab them for its own devices (once it’s ready to adapt them).
