After months and months of postponements and advances, the two new smartphones of the Huawei P50 family are official! In a dedicated event held exclusively for the Chinese market, Huawei P50 and Huawei P50 Pro were officially unveiled, the two high-profile cameraphones that, at least for now, you cannot have.

After a first look at the past history of the "P" range, starting from Huawei P9 and P10, passing through the colorful P10, the iconic P20 and P30, up to last year's Huawei P40, the Chinese brand led by Richard Yu has finally lifted the red cloth from the two new tops Huawei P50 and Huawei P50 Pro range.

Given the Kirin chip shortage and the inability to use Qualcomm 5G chips, both models are available in two different LTE variants: one with the remaining Kirin 9000 SoC products from Huawei and one with a special version of Snapdragon 888 deprived of the latest generation connectivity.

Huawei P50 comes with 8GB of RAM while a 12GB RAM variant is also available for the Pro version. Both are equipped with 128GB or 512GB of internal memory expandable through proprietary NM-type cards.

Both Huawei P50 and P50 Pro can be recharged via USB Type-C cable at a maximum power of 66W, with only the model flagship to have fast wireless charging at 50W. The battery capacity is respectively 4,100mAh and 4,360mAh.

The two models also differ in the display, P50 has a 6.5 ″ flat panel with 90Hz refresh rate while P50 Pro has a curved display from 6.6 ″ and 120Hz refresh rate.

What certainly interests most for fans of the queen series of Huawei is the photographic sector. The Huawei P50 is equipped with a 50MP main camera, a 13MP ultra wide-angle camera and an optically stabilized 12MP telephoto lens. Huawei P50 Pro goes all-in with the best cameras available to the brand: a main one of 50MP, the same ultra-wide angle of 13MP, a telephoto lens with periscopic lens (3.5x optical zoom, 100x digital zoom) of 64MP with OIS and a monochrome sensor 40MP.

Both use a single 13MP front camera which is located in a hole in the center of the display.

Huawei's P50 flagship series has Snapdragon 888 and two camera bumps

Huawei has taken the wraps off its latest superphone series. It unveiled the P50, P50 Pro in an online event Thursday, each of which are getting a China-only release for now. 

The main superpower of Huawei's phones have long been their cameras -- and the P50 is no exception. In fact, you can see the emphasis Huawei put on the cameras as soon as you look at the phones: Both the P50 and P50 Pro have not one but two camera bumps, which together take up more than a third of the phone's rear width. This wasn't entirely a surprise, since Huawei had teased images and videos of the lineup ahead of the event, but it does make for an eye-catching new design, which does away with the dual hole-punch design of the P40 series.

The P50 Pro has four cameras on its rear: a 50-megapixel main, a 64-megapixel telephoto, a 40-megapixel monochrome and a 13-megapixel ultrawide lens. The P50 has a similar camera bump, but it has one less lens. There's a 50-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel telephoto, and a 13-megapixel ultrawide. Surprisingly, the base version has better optical zoom than the pro version (5x versus 3.5x optical zoom). Each has 13-megapixel selfie cameras.

Beyond the camera, the P50 series stacks a range of enviable features, as expected (you can look at the specs at the bottom for more details). A crisp and smooth OLED display, a large battery, fast-charging (66 watts) and fast processors. The P50 series comes in two variants -- one powered by the company's own Kirin 9000 chipset and the other by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 4G CPU. Qualcomm was granted permission to sell chips to Huawei last year. These chipsets are backed up by 8GB RAM and 256GB/512GB of flash storage. 

You may recall Huawei phones no longer feature Google apps -- a consequence of crippling US sanctions. But the P50 series is one of Huawei's first new lineups to debut the company's own operating system, Harmony OS, which the Chinese telecom had developed in-house to replace Google Mobile Services in its smartphones. When the P50 launches internationally, it should provide Huawei with the opportunity to to gauge consumer response to the company's in-house software and whether it'll gain wider adoption among international shoppers amid the backdrop of Huawei's eroding smartphone marketshare.

Huawei is starting out with a China release before the series before it gets an international rollout (if it does), though specs may vary slightly based on your country. The P50 Pro starts at 5,988 yuan (roughly $930, AU$1,256) for a model, while the P50 starts at 4,488 yuan (roughly $695, AU$ 940).
