A couple of days ago, Huawei launched the Huawei P50 family – Huawei P50 and Huawei P50 Pro. However, to our surprise, both phones lacked the support for 5G despite being powered by chips that have 5G modems. Now, a new report has emerged claiming that 5G version of the Pro model is coming later.
The info emanated from Digital Chat Station after posting in his Weibo account that it has been confirmed that the Huawei P50 Pro will get a 5G version powered by the Kirin 9000 processor. We actually didn’t expect a 5G version of the Snapdragon 888 edition.
As at the time of writing, no info on when this model will be available but considering that some models of the P50 Pro won’t be sold until September alongside the standard P50, then we may not see this 5G version until later, probably the 4th quarter. The source also reaffirmed that the Huawei P50 Pro+ is coming too.
Huawei P50 Pro Specifications
The Huawei P50 Pro has a 6.6-inch curved OLED screen with a centered punch hole and a 2700 x 1228 resolution. The screen has a 120Hz refresh rate and a 300Hz touch sampling rate.
Huawei announced the phone in Kirin 9000 and Snapdragon 888 variants and it is available with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. There is also support for storage expansion.
The P50 Pro has two main cameras – a 50MP RGB sensor and a 40MP B/W sensor. There is also a 13MP ultrawide angle camera and a 64MP telephoto camera that brings 3.5x optical zoom, 20x hybrid zoom, and 100x digital zoom. The front-facing camera is a 13MP sensor.
A 4360mAh battery powers the device along with support for 66W fast wired charging and 50W wireless fast charging. A charger doesn’t come included in the box. The phone also has an IP68 rating, NFC, Bluetooth 5.2, and runs HarmonyOS 2. It is already available for pre-order in China and will be available for purchase on August 12.
