HUAWEI P50 + P50 Pro : Ultimate Photography Smartphones

The P50 and P50 Pro are HUAWEI’s latest photography-oriented P-series flagship smartphones. Let’s take a quick look at their key features!

True-Chroma Displays

The HUAWEI P50 Pro comes with a large 6.6-inch True-Chroma display, with a resolution of 1228 x 2700 pixels. The P50 has a slightly smaller 6.5-inch True-Chroma display, with the same resolution.

They both use an OLED panel with a wide P3 colour gamut, with a higher maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz (P50 Pro) or 90 Hz (P50), and a maximum touch sampling rate of 300 MHz.

These True-Chroma displays also boast a 1440 Hz PWM dimming control, to reduce eyestrain, and allow for comfortable viewing experience in low-light conditions.

Protected From Water!

Both HUAWEI P50 and P50 Pro smartphones are IP68 water-resistant, so they are safe from water splashes and immersion in up to 1.5 metres of water for up to 30 minutes.

Flagship Performance!

Both HUAWEI P50 and P50 Pro smartphones are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G mobile SoC, which is kept cool by a 3D Graphene Liquid Cooling System.

Cameras Delight!

Both HUAWEI P50 and P50 Pro smartphones come with a 13 MP punch hole camera in the front. It has a decent f/2.4 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.

The HUAWEI P50 has a triple camera setup that consists of :

  • a 50 MP main camera, with f/1.8 aperture,
  • a 12 MP 3.5X periscope telephoto camera, with f/3.4 aperture, and
  • a 13 MP wide-angle camera, with f/2.2 aperture.

HUAWEI nova 9 SE : Why You Should Not Miss Its Pre-Order!

Take a look at the new HUAWEI nova 9 SE smartphone, and find out why you should not miss its pre-order!

 

HUAWEI nova 9 SE : Why You Should Not Miss Its Pre-Order!

HUAWEI just launched the nova 9 SE – a phenomenal new mid-range smartphone with a 108MP camera!

Take a look at its key features, and find out why you should not miss its pre-order!

6.78-inch FullView Display

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE comes with a massive 6.78-inch FullView Display, with ultra-narrow bezels that are just 1.05 mm on each side!

This display has a FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2388 pixels, with a 90 Hz refresh rate, and a 270 Hz touch sampling rate for a much smoother visual experience!

Sleek + Trendy Design!

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE features the Star Orbit Ring design with a 3D glass back, which is very slim at just 7.94 mm, and weighs only 191 grams.

HUAWEI is also offering it in a variety of nature-inspired colours – Crystal Blue, Pearl White and Midnight Black.

108 MP AI Quad-Camera System!

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE is targeted at those who enjoy photography, and features an upgraded AI-enhanced quad camera system that consists of :

  • a 108 MP High-Resolution Camera,
  • an 8 MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera,
  • a 2 MP Depth Camera, and
  • a 2 macro camera

It is remarkable that such an affordable mid-range smartphone actually comes with a 108 MP high-resolution camera.

Not only can you capture super-high resolution 108 MP photos, it boasts a larger 1/1.52-inch sensor with Multi-Frame Fusion capability.

I cannot stress just how important that is – these technologies allow the nova 9 SE to deliver exceptional image quality even in low-light conditions.

And in super low-light conditions, it can even combine four pixels into one for shots that would not be possible on other smartphones.

16 MP Selfie Camera!

In the front, the HUAWEI nova 9 SE has a 16 MP wide-angle camera, offering the ability to capture more at high resolution.

This front camera supports 4-in-1 Pixel Binning technology that combines four pixels into one, for stunning selfies even in low-light conditions.

In addition, its Super Night Shot capability accurately recognises human faces, and optimises the background to give you well-balanced selfies at night.

Creative Blogging Features!

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE goes beyond just the camera hardware, and introduces two videography features to allow for greater creativity.

Its Continuous Front + Rear Recording capability lets you seamlessly switch between the front and rear cameras, while recording your video. You no longer have to stop recording to switch cameras, which may disrupt the recording process. It also saves you time and effort to stitch the videos together.

It also supports Dual-View Video Recording, letting you record from both the front and rear cameras at the same time. Best of all – you can continue to zoom in and out to wide-angle, for maximum creativity!

As you can see, these features not only allow you to create more unique videos, you can now literally insert yourself into, and be part of your videos!

66W SuperCharge!

The HUAWEI nova 9 SE comes with a large 4,000 mAh battery. But HUAWEI didn’t just stop there.

Its battery actually supports the 66W SuperCharge, the brand-new Low-Voltage Double Charging Pump, and Triple-Terminal Battery Charging technologies.

These battery technologies allow the nova 9 SE to charge up to 60% of its battery in just 15 minutes, with a full charge in just 36 minutes!

In case you are worried, its battery received the TÜV Rheinland Safe Fast Charge Certification, guaranteeing you a worry-free super-fast charging experience!
