Huawei’s P50 flagship will launch on July 29
The company has announced that Huawei’s next flagship phone, the P50, is set to launch on July 29. Writing on his own Weibo page, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Group, said (via Google Translate) that the phone would mark the beginning of “a new era of mobile imaging.” Huawei could once again make the camera the focus of its upcoming flagship. .
It’s been a little over a year since Huawei announced its P40 series, but the launch of the P50 has certainly been a long way off. US sanctions on the company over national security concerns have severely affected Huawei’s ability to manufacture its own Karen chipset, raising doubts about its ability to release new flagship devices. “For reasons you are all familiar with, the launch date has not been set,” Yu said, teasing the design of the P50 during a launch event last month.
These chip challenges, coupled with restrictions, mean that Huawei can no longer pre-install Google’s apps and services on their devices, eliminating Huawei’s market share. Globally, it failed to rank in the top five smartphone sellers in the second quarter of this year (after being the largest in the same quarter last year), and even Oppo in China in January. I succeeded in becoming the most famous smartphone brand in the country.
