Although the US ban has effectively ousted it from the smartphone market, there is still some curiosity around the series Huawei Mate 50. Since its inception in 2013, the Mate family has attracted the hype of phablet lovers with cutting-edge technical specifications. But you have to go back to 2020 for the latest model, that one Mate 40 Pro also arrived to us but with a software and a price poco palatable. Since then, Huawei has found itself in the position of not being able to produce too many top-of-the-line products per year to avoid going at a loss. More generally, we have gone from 40 smartphone models in 2020 to 20 in 2021, underlining the desire to reduce production to contain costs (and losses).
Goodbye Leica, welcome XMAGE: this is how the Huawei Mate 50 camera will be
But if 2021 was all about Huawei P50 and P50 Pro, it seems that 2022 could be the year of the Huawei Mate 50 series. One year after the presentation of the P50 series, the fact that there is no mention of that P60 is indicative of how the focus would be on the Mate line. And according to the latest rumors, these could be the first smartphones equipped with the new XMAGE camera.
Since 2016, the collaboration between Huawei and Leica had brought significant improvements for the photo gallery of the top of the range, including the models from Mate 9 to the latest Mate 40. But this marriage has now come to an end, Leica has officially "married" with Xiaomi but Huawei did not take long to counter. Thus came the announcement of Huawei XMAGE, a new photographic technology that will focus on "technological innovation, video shooting experience and imaging culture".
One of the focal points will be the realization of a hardware and software system capable of taking pictures with colors faithful to reality e improve video quality. There will be technologies already seen previously, such as proprietary XD Optics lenses, True-Chroma Image Engine and XD Fusion Pro to improve the processing of brightness, color, contrast and details.
Meanwhile, rumors suggest that the official presentation of the Huawei Mate 50 series could take place towards The end of August. However, take this information with a grain of salt, given the amount of leaks passed on the Mate 50 that never materialized.
