HUAWEI P50 Pro : Hands-On Experience!
HUAWEI just introduced another photography-oriented P-series flagship smartphone – the P50 Pro!
In this preview, you will take a look at HUAWEI P50 Pro’s key features and a colour comparison…
6.6-inch True-Chroma Display
The HUAWEI P50 Pro comes with a large 6.6-inch True-Chroma display, with a resolution of 1228 x 2700 pixels.
Its OLED panel offers a wide P3 colour gamut, with a 120 Hz maximum refresh rate, and a maximum touch sampling rate of 300 MHz.
It also boasts a 1440 Hz PWM dimming control, to reduce eyestrain, and allow for comfortable viewing experience in low-light conditions.
Protected From Water!
The HUAWEI P50 Pro is IP68 water-resistant, so it is safe from water splashes and immersion in up to 1.5 metres of water for up to 30 minutes.
The HUAWEI P50 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G mobile SoC, which is kept cool by a 3D Graphene Liquid Cooling System.
It also offers plenty of memory and storage, with two variants :
- 8 GB of RAM with 256 GB of storage, or
- 12 GB of RAM with 512 GB of storage.
In the front, the HUAWEI P50 Pro has a 13 MP punch hole camera, with a f/2.4 aperture.
The HUAWEI P50 Pro’s key selling point though is at the back, where it has a massive quad camera setup that consists of :
- a 50 MP main camera, with f/1.8 aperture,
- a 40 MP monochrome camera, with f/1.6 aperture,
- a 64 MP 3.5X periscope telephoto camera, with f/3.5 aperture, and
- a 13 MP wide-angle camera, with f/2.2 aperture.
The 40 MP monochrome camera complements the 50 MP camera by adding detail to the images it captures – what HUAWEI calls XD Optics with enhanced XD Fusion Pro technology.
Long Battery Life
The HUAWEI P50 Pro comes with a large 4,360 mAh battery, which promises to last a full day of use.
On top of that, it supports 66 watt wired fast charging, with 50 watt wireless charging. Very fast indeed!
Stereo Speakers With Histen Technology
The HUAWEI P50 Pro comes with stereo speakers, with HUAWEI Histen technology which allows you to customise sound effects for different scenarios.
