Due to U.S. restrictions, Huawei isn’t manufacturing its chipsets, although Huawei uses Snapdragon processors but it supports 4G because the US administration allowed Qualcomm to supply only 4G processors to Huawei. For this reason, we saw that Huawei’s flagship phones Huawei P50 series and Huawei Nova 9 use Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 778 respectively, but both do not support 5G. Every year, Huawei used to launch two flagship series which are P and Mate series but this year Huawei could launch only the Huawei P50 series and the Huawei Mate 50 series will be launched next year instead of lunch this year. Instead of the Huawei Mate 50 series, Huawei launched the Huawei Nova 9 series. Both Huawei P50 Series and Huawei Nova 9 Series are limited to China only as of now, which must have hurt Huawei lovers who love to buy the latest Huawei device. On October 21, Huawei is scheduled to hold an event in Vienna, most possibly where Huawei will launch the Huawei P50 series globally.
Earlier this year in February, Huawei had launched the successor of Huawei Mate X which was Huawei Mate X2 and at that time Huawei Mate X2 had the most compacted foldable phone till Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 had not launched and Mate X2 is the last Huawei phone that was powered by Kirin 9000 5G SoC. Subsequently, Huawei had introduce the Huawei P50 series with the Kirin 9000 chipset but it doesn’t support 5G because the technical part of the chipset that supports 5G connectivity wasn’t not working properly, like the RF antenna. Now, Huawei is gearing up for the launch of a new phone that will compete with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. As per the source, Huawei will be launching the Huawei Mate Flip which will be marketed as “Huawei Mate V”. The Huawei Mate V will be unveiled in December of this year. Also quoted by the source, Huawei Mate V will not launch alone, in the same event Huawei is planning to launch Huawei Watch GT3, Huawei Watch D and Huawei Watch Fit 2.
Huawei Mate Flip / Huawei Mate V
For a long time, a lot of time rumour and leaks float on the internet that Huawei Mate V is about to be launch but this time it’ll happen. As of now, no specifications and design have been leaked, but thanks to LetsGoDigital who searched the patent long ago and shared a phone render and the phone that will be launched is going to look similar to the render. In terms of design, the Huawei Mate V/Flip display size will be around 6.8 inches with a centred punch hole and the cover display placed vertically after the camera where the size of the cover display will be around 1.35 inches. Under the hood, it’ll follow the footsteps of the Huawei P50 series for chipset policy, using both Kirin 9000 4G and Snapdragon 888 4G. The Mate Flip will feature a triple camera setup at the rear and a single camera option for selfies which will be placed at centred hole punch. One of the most frequently asked questions in the times to come will be whether this will be a Leica-powered camera or not. There have been rumours in the past that Huawei and Leica’s cooperation has ended, but there has been no official statement from the both of company. Dispelling the rumour that the Huawei and Leica collaboration still exists, and highly likely the Mate Flip will be powered by the Leica branding but the final decision rests with Huawei. The placement and design of the rear camera section are uncertain, it will be interesting to see how Huawei manages it. Battery size, model number and name, global launch are all uncertain and unpredictable and it is too early to say anything about this.
