HUAWEI has introduced the company’s flagship Mate 50 Pro smartphone for the global markets, after it was introduced in China earlier this month. The phone has a 6.74″ FHD+ 120Hz OLED screen, and is powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4G version.
The main highlight of the phone is its Ultra Aperture XMAGE Camera that has f/1.4 Ultra-large aperture, adjustable physical aperture of 10 sizes, which can go down to f/4.0 aperture. It has a RYYB sensor that works seamlessly with the XD Fusion Pro image engine to keep brightness and contrasts pristine, says the company. There is a 13MP ultra-wide camera and a 64MP 3.5X periscope zoom and OIS.
The phone has a Kunlun Glass with drop resistance certification from Switzerland’s SGS. The phone has IP68 ratings for dust and water resistance. The phone doesn’t have satellite communication technology, which is present in the Chinese version.
