Huawei has officially confirmed that a new flagship product launch event will be held on July 29, when the new Huawei P50 series will be launched.
Consumer group CEO Richard Yu took to Weibo to confirm that “the #HuaweiP50# series will soon release a new imaging technology pioneered in the industry”.
The teaser doesn’t reveal much, apart from the date and time of the official announcement.
The teaser image shown during a livestream on June 2 (above) showed a design rocking two camera bumps with four lenses and two flash modules. However, we learned little more about the nature of the camera or the megapixel count other than the confirmation Leica optics will be on board.
We’re also expecting the phone to arrive with the new HarmonyOS on board, replacing Android. Trade restrictions opposed on Huawei by the United States means the company has decided to go it alone, rather than run an Android version bereft of the key Google services as it has been for the last couple of years.
