Huawei P50 series: new leaks point to HarmonyOS out of the box and the Pro version's screen design
The Huawei P50 series is currently rumored to launch late and in short supply due to their maker's ongoing trade-war woes. This might be a shame, as they are also touted to be the first phones to launch with the new and state-of-the-art Sony IMX 800 sensor. Now, its latest leaks suggest they will also be the first to run HarmonyOS out of the box.
This ROM is touted by Huawei as a new system built from the ground up as a complete alternative to Android, although the veracity of those claims has recently been disputed in certain circles. Nevertheless, ITHome now asserts the OEM is forging ahead with HarmonyOS 2.0 for the P50 series: apparently, the phones are on their third in-testing beta at this stage.
In other P50 news, the online China-based store 1688 has claimed to have P50 Pro screen protectors in stock. Should this be the case, it seems punch-holes are not required in these accessories. The new leak may also reveal the device's display has profoundly curved edges - again - albeit with only a hint of forehead and chin.
