OnLeaks gives us a first glimpse of the Huawei P50 Pro, a smartphone with ever thinner borders.
Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known by the pseudonym OnLeaks, apparently wanted to strike a blow to end 2020 on a high note. He therefore shares today the first visual of a rather expected smartphone: the Huawei P50 Pro.
Say goodbye to facial recognition sensors
According to the information published by the leaker with exemplary reliability, the Huawei P50 Pro would be equipped with a large 6.6-inch screen, pierced with a thin centered bubble, similar to that of a Galaxy Note. Goodbye, therefore, to the large ovoid bubble incorporating facial recognition sensors: the Covid-19 and the constant wearing of masks seem to have led Huawei to rethink the way to unlock its most premium smartphone.
This large screen, very curved around the edges, would be contained in a frame that was approximately 159mm high by 73mm wide. For comparison, the Huawei P40 Pro has a 6.58-inch screen with dimensions of 158.2 x 72.6 mm, which means that the Chinese brand has not changed its formula much.
However, we can see in the published image that the borders are very thin, giving the smartphone a real premium look.
The return of the speaker
On its P40s, Huawei tested a new way of integrating the speaker used for calls: it was an invisible magnetic speaker. Here, we note the return of a traditional grid, for better sound quality. Remember that others have tried it, such as Google with the speaker under the screen of the Pixel 5, and that the result is rarely satisfactory for the moment.
For now, this is the only information we have about the Huawei P50 Pro, but we can expect more leaks and rumors to emerge in the coming weeks. If Huawei sticks to its usual schedule, the announcement could take place in February or March.
