The P50 series is slated to be the next generation of Huawei's camera-oriented flagship smartphones. New leaks have suggested that the OEM is developing HarmonyOS 2.0 as their default ROM, which would be the first time it has shipped devices with this new OS. Meanwhile, a screen protector for the P50 Pro is also allegedly now out in the wild.

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.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
