In a Weibo post earlier today, a tipster revealed that huawei will probably announce the next-gen Mate 50 series smartphones by the end of the second quarter of next year, which is about 9 months from now.
The post also reveals that while Huawei plans to release the Mate 50 phones with support for 5G, we will still see 4G variants. The new phones will also launch with a mix of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor and Huawei’s own Kirin chipset. The Snapdragon processor will most likely be a 4G version of the yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 898 processor.
The tipster futher states that Huawei’s strategy, for the time being, will be one flagship series per year rather than two. This means, we most likely won’t get a successor to the Huawei P50 series next year.
