After months of anticipation, Huawei has finally announced that the company’s flagship P50 series and P50 Pocket smartphones will be launched globally on January 12th, according to information published on it’s social media platforms.
This time round, the Huawei P50 models are expected to hit the South-East Asian markets first, followed by other regions. That means countries like Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines would be among the first to sell these devices.
As usual, the upcoming models will share largely identical specs as those which had already been launched in the Chinese market. However, the global variant for the P50 Pro apparently received a sidegrade from the company’s in-house Kirin 9000 to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 mobile platform.
Just like the recently announced Huawei Nova 9 Pro, the P50 series devices is expected to be shipped with EMUI 12 instead of the much coveted HarmonyOS 2.0 which was used in the Chinese variants. Nonetheless, there’s still always a possibility that the devices could be upgraded to it’s proprietary platform in the near future.
