The Mate 50 E has the same Harmony OS 3 UI and basic design of the rest of its new premium smartphone series. It also has the same main rear camera and display as the vanilla 50, although the E variant has a premium mid-range Qualcomm SoC rather than a flagship-grade processor.

The Mate 50 E has launched with the same re-designed camera hump as the 50, 50 Pro and 50 RS, although only 2 of its 4 lens-rings are rated to house active sensors. Then again, one of them is the 50MP main camera that also features in its higher-end siblings.

It is joined by a 13MP f/2.2 ultrawide shooter in the new E variant. The new device is not one for fans of the throwback display notch found in the RS, as it has the same punch-hole FHD+ 90Hz OLED panel as the Mate 50. 

It is driven by the lesser-spotted 4G/LTE-only version of the Snapdragon 778, kept on with a 4,460mAh with aging 66W charging technology. Those specs also help bring its starting price down to 3,999 yuan (~US$575) for an 8GB RAM/128GB base model.

However, unlike the rest of the Mate 50 series, it is not available for pre-order yet, with sales projected to start in October 2022.
