Check out these renders of Huawei’s first 2021 5G flagship phone line
But with all the changes that affect Huawei, thanks to the restrictions imposed by the United States, the P50 series is delayed. Today, Twitter tipster Teme (@ RODENT950) conveyed renderings of the new models that will be known (from top to bottom) as the P50 Pro Plus, P50 Pro and P50. The P50 series will be the first flagship line to be shipped by Huawei without a licensed or unlicensed Android.

As many of you know, Huawei cannot use the Google Mobile Services (GMS) version of Android because it requires the operating system to be licensed by Google. And with Huawei still on the device list, the company cannot access its US supply chain without a special license. Limiting Huawei is also the change in U.S. export regulations that went into effect last year that prevents Huawei from receiving chips produced by foundries using U.S.-made technology.

As a result, instead of ending the year as the largest smartphone provider in the world, which would otherwise have happened, US actions will lower Huawei to seventh or eighth place among the world’s largest smartphone providers.
