A new smartphone line from Huawei has been introduced. The devices were introduced by the firm at a Chinese event. Three of the four smartphones that were introduced are from the flagship lineup.

The Huawei Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro, and Mate 50 RS Porsche Design are those gadgets. Although it was also unveiled, the Huawei Mate 50E is essentially a mid-range smartphone. I’ll discuss each of them in turn below. The Mate 50 and Mate 50E share a lot in common, as do the Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50 RS Porsche Edition, so let’s actually group them two by two.

Please take note that all of them have a similar camera island on the back before we continue. Although the cameras are different, they all have four cutouts inside that camera island. Though not all of those cutouts are meant for the cameras.

Both the Huawei Mate 50 and Mate 50E have flat displays with a hole in the center for the camera. These two phones are remarkably similar in terms of design. Although their internals are different, there are still some commonalities.

The displays on both devices are identical. A 6.7-inch fullHD (2700 x 1224) OLED screen is what you’re seeing. The panel has a 300Hz touch sampling rate and a 90Hz refresh rate. It has a 1 billion color projection capacity.

They both provide 128GB and 256GB storage capacities, and the Mate 50 furthermore has a 512GB storage model. Although Huawei’s memory card is required, that storage can be expanded.

It’s also very intriguing how the cameras are set up. Both of these phones have the same primary and ultrawide cameras, but the Mate 50 additionally has a periscope telephoto lens. On both phones, a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera (f/2.2 aperture) is supported by a 50-megapixel main camera (OIS, f/1.4-f/4 variable aperture). A 12-megapixel periscope telephoto camera with an F/3.4 aperture, OIS, 5x optical zoom, and 50x digital zoom is also included with the Mate 50.

In China, the Huawei Mate 50 is available for CNY4,999 ($718), but the Mate 50E’s pricing is unknown.

The RS Porsche Edition Huawei Mate 50 Pro is essentially a high-end version of the company’s flagship device. The change may be seen in the paint work on the rear, some added software, etc. But the specifications are essentially the same. The RS Porsche Edition model is obviously more expensive, but we’ll talk more about that later.

Both a refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 300Hz are supported. Up to 1 billion colors can be projected with this display.

The Huawei Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50 RS Porsche Edition both have a notch. According to renders, the notch is significantly less obtrusive than the one on the iPhone 13 series. However, the bezels are fairly thin.

The RS Porsche Edition only has 512GB of storage, whereas the Huawei Mate 50 Pro has both 256GB and 512GB of storage. On both devices, storage can be increased though.

In the area of cameras, there are some variations. The third camera is different from the previous two, which are identical. On both phones, a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera (f/2.2 aperture) is supported by a 50-megapixel primary camera (f/1.4-f/4, OIS).

A 64-megapixel periscope telephoto camera with an F/3.5 aperture, OIS, 3.5x optical zoom, and 100x digital zoom is also included with the Mate 50. A 48-megapixel super macro telephoto camera with an f/3.0 aperture and OIS is the third camera on the Mate RS variant.

Each phone has a 4,700mAh battery and supports Huawei’s 66W wired charging. Both phones are 50W wireless charging compatible.

The starting price for the Huawei Mate 50 Pro is CNY6,799 ($977), while the starting price for the Mate 50 RS Porsche Design variants is CNY12,999 ($1,868).
