Huawei’s photography series is finally back with its iconic monochromatic camera. The Huawei P50 Pro is now available worldwide and is one of the most interesting camera setups we’ve ever seen. Powered by Leica, of course, it’s a flagship packed with premium hardware and it’s getting its full attention today.
The Huawei P50 Pro and P50 Pocket are now available in international markets, while the standard P50 may remain exclusive in China. These global devices run on EMUI 12, and the P50 Pro’s firmware is based on the Android 11 kernel, and it’s no surprise that there are no Google services instead of Huawei’s packages.
The P50 Pro is one of the flagships available today that is indeed waterproof. Its 6.6-inch OLED display has a resolution of 1228p, a 120Hz dynamic refresh rate, a 300Hz touch rate, and HDR10+ support. It doesn’t have a pill-shaped notch. Since there is no face ID or a couple selfies, hours! The instrument panel has a few perforations for an ultra-wide-angle autofocus standalone camera (hooray!) and for safety purposes. optical fingerprint scanner
Huawei’s latest flagship, Snapdragon 888, operates outside of China, and the Kirin 9000 is one of the devices sold in its homeland. There’s also no 5G, we suspect this is likely a result of the US ban.
The most interesting thing about the Huawei P50 Pro is its rear camera, which is very promising. It has a 50MP primary camera with 27mm f/1.9 OIS lens and laser autofocus. er) for the iconic black and white image. Third is a 13-megapixel camera with a 13mm f/2.2 lens and autofocus for ultra wide-angle and macro photography.
Finally, the telephoto lens has a 64MP sensor, Bayer filter and a 90mm f/3.5 OIS lens for 3.5x optical zoom on the main camera, as this camera can shoot at full 64MP (not quadbayer). By simply cropping the entire 64MP image, it can deliver a smooth zoom like the 3.5x promised. Huawei spreads this up to 10x, but we’ll talk about that later.
The P50 Pro has good stereo speakers. many microphones all over the body Infrared emitters and multi-spectral sensors for more accurate colors in your photos. It’s powered by a 4360mAh battery that supports wireless charging up to 66W and wireless charging up to 50W with a proprietary Huawei charger. Oh, and there’s an NM extension option in case you need it.
In fact, the Huawei P50 Pro, despite its flaws, has some. But it seems like a pretty interesting proposition. Quickly scroll through the entire form.

Unboxing the Huawei P50 Pro
The Huawei P50 Pro comes in a thick box which is more than what Apple and Samsung have recently offered. because this is an obstacle.
So in this white box You’ll also find a nice 66W AC adapter and a Type 6A USB-A-C cable to get the most out of this charger.
Huawei also comes with a soft transparent case. This comes in handy when the grip isn’t perfect. And since this is a smartphone for photographers This case is essential.
Finally, the P50 Pro comes with a thin film on the screen, but it’s a huge magnet and we immediately removed it. It’s available when you need it, and Huawei gets a few points for that.
Design, build quality, handling
Huawei is known for making expensive smartphones and the Huawei P50 Pro is another proof of that. We like it from the out of the box. Rounded, thin and light, it fits perfectly with the iconic Leica back – the P50 Pro looks and feels really good.
The Huawei P50 Pro is your typical smartphone with double glass. double body Slim metal body and slim figure Curved bezels at Apple are a bit outdated. But we’re glad Huawei picked this one up again. It has all of Huawei’s DNA – the P50 Pro looks just like the other P and Mate phones, which is a good thing.
