How do the new Huawei P50 present themselves? The design of these flagships takes up, without going around it too much, the style already seen with Honor 50, although the camera bumper seems to be wider or better, the pill containing the sensors, even more than the Nova 8. Where are the aesthetic differences between P50 and P50 Pro?

The basic model measures 156.5 x 73.8 x 7.92 mm for a weight of 181 g, while the Pro model rises to 158.8 x 72.8 x 8.5 mm for a weight of approx 195 g. This results in a taller, squarer (due to display) and certainly heavier Pro.

For the P50 Pro then we always have a nice OLED panel curved da 6.6" Quad HD + (2700 x 1228 pixels) with a refresh rate 120 Hz and sampling at 300Hz with the same filtering at 1440Hz.

Hardware and software

Hardware was the biggest doubt until presentation day for these two Huawei P50s. In fact, there was a lot of discussion about which chipset they had and the toto-SoC took place often between Kirin and Snapdragon, also citing MediaTek. In fact, the Kirin 9000 4G is present and will only be on P50 Pro, which, however, also uses a version with Snapdragon 888 4G which is also present in the standard version and is always 4G. This is the result of the concession that Qualcomm has in supplying its LTE modem chipsets to the Chinese giant.

Moving on to the memories side, Huawei P50 is equipped with 8 GB RAM e 128 / 256 GB expandable storage via the well-known NM Card, while P50 Pro has two cuts from 8 / 12 GB, while for storage we have 128 / 256 / 512 GB.

The camera of the new Huawei P50 is certainly one of the crucial points of the whole presentation. They, despite US limitations, did not miss high-thickness sensors co-engineered by Leica. Starting from the Pro model, we are faced with a main sensor from 50 MP with 23mm lens and focal aperture f / 1.8 with OIS. But it doesn't stop there, because the sensor also gives 40 MP, with a 26 mm lens, it uses a primary color management never seen before. Moving on, we also have an ultra-wide angle from 13 MP 13 mm f / 2.2 and a telephoto da 64 MP with focal length from 23 to 90 mm and 3.5x optical zoom with digital that goes however to 100x.

Even the camera of the Huawei P50 does not look bad though and comes with the same sensor from 50 MP accompanied by an ultra-wide angle from 13 MP with telephoto lens from 12 MP which allows a 5x optical and digital zoom up to 50x. For both models there is a selfie camera from 13 MP f/2.4. Below we can see a super shot from the Pro model.
