Chinese tech powerhouse Huawei has had a bag of mixed fortunes since the US blacklisted the company from accessing important US supplies a few years back. Back in July, there was a raft of product releases that indicated a silver lining in the dark skies. The July offering included the flagship P50 series.
However, there were speculations that due to the US ban, as well as supply chain challenges, Huawei might not be able to release another flagship product within 2021, although the Mate 50 had already been mooted for unveiling within the fourth quarter of the year.
There are indications that Huawei might have overcome all the constraints and indeed the Mate 50 series is set for its October 2021 release as scheduled. This hint is coming from an industry expert and analyst with Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), who insists that Huawei will release the flagship products in October as planned.
Tracking the event schedule of Huawei, there is a global launch event officially slated for October 21 in Vienna, Austria, and the Mate 50 series could be part of the product lineup for the Vienna event.
Huawei is however yet to offer any official confirmation that the global event on October 21 will also include the launch of the Mate 50. The global event could also be the global launch of the P50 series outside China.
Many details about the Huawei Mate 50 series are still under wraps except for few details that could be pieced from the teaser. More details about the device and key specs will become available as we inch closer to the rumored October 21 unveiling.
Since there has not been any official confirmation from Huawei, the speculation may also be false. The coming weeks will determine the direction.
