Despite all the difficulties of recent years, Huawei maintains its bet on the mobile market and its next proposal will be the Huawei Mate 50. The new top of the range of the Mate line is currently being developed and prepared to reach the market, but you may experience some delays.
Huawei has a habit of launching its new model (or new models) of this line in the last quarter of each year, but after the four-month delay in launching the Huawei P50, the Mate 50 may also arrive much later than initially planned.
Huawei Mate 50 may arrive in 2022
According to Digital Chat Station , a renowned source of information about Chinese manufacturers, the Huawei Mate 50 will only reach the market in the first quarter of 2022. According to the source, Huawei will have planned the launch of this smartphone for the first three months of next year , and this delay is likely to be related to the same production problems thanks to the global semiconductor crisis.
If confirmed, this information contradicts other sources that guaranteed that the launch of the Huawei Mate 50 is scheduled for the next month of October.
On the other hand, today’s source also adds that the processor chosen to equip the Huawei Mate 50 is codenamed SM8425. This is the reference for the next high-end Qualcomm processor, which should have the name Snapdragon 898 and which, according to the source, will reach the Mate 50 in an exclusively 4G version.
As in the P50, the Mate 50 will also be prevented from using 5G mobile data, a result of conflicts between Huawei, the United States of America and the European Union over the installation of 5G equipment by the Chinese manufacturer, which allegedly will have connections to the Chinese government.
Interestingly, it is still uncertain whether a version with Kirin processor will be made available on this new smartphone. With the Huawei P50, the tech giant has made available two processor options, with the Kirin 9000 or the Snapdragon 888 4G. The Huawei Mate 50 would be the candidate to debut a possible successor to the Kirin 9000, but after the break in the partnership with TSMC, the production of new processors by HiSilicon (a subsidiary of Huawei responsible for the development of processors for smartphones and tablets) became impracticable.
or now, no further details are known about the Huawei Mate 50 and its news, but it is almost certain that the coming months will be rich in leaks of information that will unveil all its details.
