Beijing, 7 September 2022 (TDI): CEO of Huawei, Richard Yu, revealed the Huawei Mate 50 series on Tuesday. The company launched a flagship smartphone without 5G,which is also the first device that is able to connect to China’s BeiDou global navigation satellite system.

Features of Huawei Mate 50 Pro

Huawei mentioned this is the first smartphone, released to the public, that can connect to China’s BeiDou. BeiDou is a competitor to the widely-used US government-owned Global Positioning System (GPS).

Moreover, Huawei’s Mate 50 showcases an updated camera with four lenses arranged in a circle on the back. Additionally, the phone also runs Harmony 3.0, the latest version of Huawei’s self-developed operating system (OS).

The Mate 50 does not have connectivity to super-fast 5G networks after the US sanctions cut off the company from the key chip required for this. Instead, the phone connects to previous generation 4G networks.

Furthermore, the Mate 50 went on pre-sale in China on Tuesday. The starting price of the Mate 50 is 4,999 yuan ($718), with the higher-spec Mate 50 Pro starting at 6,799 yuan ($1,006).

At one point, Huawei was the number one smartphone player in the market. However, the company’s business was affected by the sanctions imposed by the US. After that, it holds a relatively less share of the market. Huawei is now trying to retain its top position in the global technological market.
