OnLeaks is at it again, with Steve Hemmerstoffer revealing an exclusive look at the upcoming Huawei P50 Pro flagship. He already provided a glimpse at the Huawei P50 Pro back in December 2020 and now he’s back with more details. First impression? Huge, dark Darth Vader eyes for the main cameras.
I must say from the get to that this design isn’t totally new, since it seems inspired by the Huawei Nova 8 launched in January. Well, that one had a single main “cyclops camera”, accompanied by 3 other shooters. Xiaomi Mi 10T made the cyclops camera trendy. Back to the OnLeaks leak, this time we get two huge main lenses for cameras, snapped onto a pretty narrow body. Gone is the dual cutout of the selfie camera, replaced by a centered singular hole.
The source also mentions a glass rear panel, a metal frame with flat edged top and bottom. It measures 8.6 mm in thickness and reaches 10.3 mm with the rear camera bump. The screen is actually smaller than I expected, at 6.6 inches and comes with slightly curved edges. Bezels are very slim and the chin too. With the selfie camera being single now, it also means we no longer have the extra IR sensor for face scanning, face unlock and great Bokeh. And that sucks, because Huawei was great at Bokehs and Face unlock.
Huawei also brings us dual speakers on the top and bottom frame, finally, after the P30 Pro and P40 Pro each one musical speaker. An IR blaster is also here, plus an under display sensor. And we’re back at the main camera. I very much doubt we’ll get a dual back camera here, but rather we’ll see multiple sensors in the figure 8 shaped back module. And if I were to pick and choose only two camera, we’d probably get a main camera with 50 MP sensor, which somehow uses a a freeform lens to go from wide to ultrawide and a secondary camera with periscope zoom.
A Kirin 9000 CPU and HarmonyOS should also be present.
