The newest HUAWEI Mate is finally unveiled here in Malaysia, the HUAWEI Mate50 series. There are two variants; the HUAWEI Mate50 and Mate50 Pro. It will be priced at RM 3,699 for the Mate50 with 8GB/256GB while the Mate50 Pro has two configurations; RM 4,499 for 8GB/256GB and RM 5,299 for 8GB/512GB.
Both are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4G chip with standard 8GB LPDDR5 memory. The main differences are the display, camera setup, and battery capacity.
The Mate50 sports a 6.7-inch 90Hz OLED FHD+ flat display while the Pro gets a slightly bigger and smoother 6.74-inch 120Hz curved side OLED. Additionally to that, the Mate50 Pro with a Vegan leather back cover also received a special glass protection, Kunlun Glass which was developed by HUAWEI. Claimed to be 10 times stronger than standard glasses for smartphones.
The Pro also gets a battery bump from 4,460 mAh to 4,700 mAh and the duo supports wired HUAWEI 66W SuperCharge and wireless HUAWEI 50W SuperCharge.
Photography-wise, the Mate50 is equipped with a 50-megapixels primary camera with OIS, a 13-megapixels ultrawide, and a 13-megapixels portrait camera. As the Mate50 Pro gets a similar camera setup but the 50-megapixels primary camera features an ultra-aperture camera that can switch aperture between f/1.4 to f/4.0. It also has a 13-megapixels ultrawide and a 64-megapixels 3.5x optical telephoto lens.
