After All, Huawei Mate 50 Could Launch in October 2021.
In June, reports stated that Huawei would not introduce the Mate 50 this year. According to these sources, the Huawei P50 will be the company's final flagship phone for 2021, and there is unlikely to be a Mate 50 anytime soon owing to the US prohibition.
However, a new revelation from a DSCC (Display Supply Chain Consultants) top specialist indicates that a new Huawei Mate phone is slated for Q4 of this year. According to senior analyst Davin Naranjo, the Mate 50 will launch in October.
Huawei has scheduled a global launch event for October 21 at 3 p.m. in Vienna, Austria. The company has not stated which products it intends to debut at this event, although most rumours indicate that the Huawei P50 series will be launched globally.
Last week's teaser image showed what appeared to be the P50 Pro, but the latest revelation from Naranjo casts doubt on that. Closer examination reveals that the bottom of the primary camera bump is located above the volume rocker, which is inconsistent with the P50 range. This leads us to conclude that it is a completely different phone.
However, the launch of Mate 50 has been quite confusing from the start, and we're not sure which report to believe. We can only wait to see what Huawei has in store for us during the October 21 event.
