As per the company’s traditional rollout pattern, the Huawei P50 series is expected to be released early next year. A new leak indicates that the series will probably be launched in March 2021. Yesterday (December 16), Huawei launched the Harmony OS 2.0 developer beta, facilitating Chinese developers to test the home-grown platform on select Huawei phones.
Now, China’s Sina Tech website has reported that Harmony OS will be “officially equipped” with the Huawei P50, adding that the device is anticipated in Q1 2021.
In March, the Huawei P50 series is expected to launch and is tipped to run on EMUI 11.1 based on Android 11. To massively improve focusing speeds, the series is reported to incorporate an innovative liquid lens technology. To achieve millisecond-level focusing, almost on the lines of the human eye, this new patented liquid lens technology is reported. The new film formation rate of the Huawei liquid lens camera module is reported to be nearly 100%.
However, their phones will still be compatible with and run Android apps after users upgrade Hongmeng OS to allow for a transition time. Huawei will completely move to Hongmeng after the Hongmeng OS ecosystem matures.
From the perspective of experience in terms of operating habits and interface design, this phone is not much different from the current EMUI developed by Huawei based on Android. And you can also download and freely run the Android App in the built-in Huawei App Store.
Hongmeng OS has also introduced some functions which Android has not implemented or are very complicated to implement, judging from the live demonstration cases. And cell phones are just part of the Hongmeng OS target devices, compared to the Android system that is based on mobile phones.
