The first "official" Huawei P50 renders come with hints of new Leica-tuned camera technology
The yet-to-be-unreleased successors to the premium Huawei P40 series have become portrayed as devices with 2 large circles in a housing located in the upper left corners of their rear panels, each containing 1 to 3 camera lenses based on each phone's place along its line's spectrum of luxury.
The leaker Teme (or @RODENT950) now purports to confirm them with new renders that may or may not have come direct from the OEM itself. They show an alleged P50-series device, finished in a gold-ish color seen in previous leaks.
The images may also confirm prior rumors of curved displays in the Pro or Pro+ variants. There is also some text running alongside the enlarged camera module that might promote one sensor's specs. Teme makes this out as reading "SUMMILUX-H 1:1.6-3.5/13-90ASPH", interpreted by our own Alexander Fagot as indicating a focal length range of 13 to 90 millimeters (mm), and, thus, an absence of periscope zoom.
This might be slightly disappointing for some Huawei P-fans; on the other hand, the OEM has never produced a Leica-informed mobile sensor with these specs before. Otherwise, the upcoming P50s are projected to be among the last phones to lay claim to the premium Kirin 9000 SoC, aand may also integrate liquid lens technology in its new camera array.
