Traditionally, Huawei’s first year flagship phone has been its photography-based “P” series (P stands for photography, of course). And every year, the Huawei “P” series is usually unveiled in the first quarter, running from January to the end of March. For example, last year P40 line was introduced on March 26th.

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.

Huawei has its own mobile ecosystem called Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), which is growing at a rapid pace. Not only does it attract a rapidly growing number of users, it has also attracted a rapidly growing number of developers.
This new export rule, announced last year exactly on the one-year anniversary of the announcement of the device list, means that Huawei is not able to acquire a large number of its own 5 nm Kirin chipset, which it designed through its HiSilicon- unit and had been produced by TSMC. Huawei ended up selling its Honor sub-unit reportedly for $ 15 billion dollars, so the latter would not be guilty of affiliation and losing access to software and hardware.

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.

The P50 series is expected to be powered by Huawei’s HarmonyOS, an operating system developed by Huawei that can be used on various devices. Huawei also unveiled the successor to its foldable phone earlier this year, the Mate X2. (You can read our review of this model right here). And later in the year, Huawei was to release its most technologically advanced models, the Mate 50 line.
We must point out that the new renderings are very similar to the P50 series reproduces that we showed you back in March. The P50 Pro is rumored to have a 6.6-inch OLED curved edge panel with a resolution of 1440+ and a 120Hz refresh rate. The P50 screen is expected to weigh 6.3 inches and will be flat. We could see that it had an FHD + resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate.
Both models can be powered by variants of the homemade Kirin 9000 chipset. The P50 Pro units could be equipped with the flagship Kirin 9000 SoC, which debuted on last year’s Mate 40 line. The P50 is expected to have a slightly lower specific version of the chip, the Kirin 9000E.
Some Huawei executives had hoped that when the Biden administration moved into the White House, the new administration would make it a priority to reverse the moves made against Huawei by the Donald Trump regime. So far, nothing has been said or done by any of the current powers to make anyone expect that to happen.
