The Mate 50 includes a 6.7-inch FHD+ (2700 x 1224-pixel) OLED display with a centre aligned punch hole cut out, a 90Hz refresh rate, and a touch sampling rate of 300Hz. This panel also has HDR capability, a P3 colour gamut, and the ability to generate 1.07 billion colours. For further protection, the screen has an in-display fingerprint scanner.The new Mate 50 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, which is combined with at least 8GB of RAM. It was previously assumed that it would use the outdated Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, but this was a pleasant surprise. This CPU, however, only supports 4G networking. This is largely owing to the sanctions imposed by the United States. The high quality device will also be powered by a 4,460mAh battery pack that enables 66W fast charging as well as up to 50W wireless fast charging.
When combined with the 4G-only Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, this could result in slightly better power efficiency than the standard model. Users may even make calls while the battery is dead, due to a battery emergency mode. Aside from that, the company provides satellite communication technology, which enables cellular calls and messages in extremely remote places where there is no cellular 3G, 4G, or 5G service. Other features include dual speakers, an anti-fingerprint layer, and splash, water, and dust resistance (however, according to the official website, this was not professionally tested).
The base Huawei Mate 50 smartphone model has a triple camera configuration on the back. Its primary image sensor is a 50 megapixel Sony IMX766 flagship sensor combined with a 13 megapixel Sony IMX688 extreme wide angle lens. The final camera is a 12 megapixel telephoto zoom lens with up to 5x optical zoom and OIS capability. The smartphone also supports the world's first XMAGE imaging technology, which will enhance the photographic experience. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera is a 13-megapixel camera.
