HUAWEI Philippines launches its best smartphone to date, the Mate 50 Pro.
The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro was first introduced alongside the vanilla Mate 50 back in September. Being a HUAWEI flagship, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 sans 5G connectivity.
Everything is impressive across the board. There’s a tall and fast 6.74-inch OLED screen with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate and an under-display fingerprint scanner.
Plus, an IP68 rating for being dust and water-resistant, and a fast 67W wired charging and a speedy 50W wireless charging. Unlike its Chinese counterpart, the Mate 50 Pro will run on EMUI 13 instead of HarmonyOS 3.0.
It may not be from the P-series, but this latest Mate still has an interesting set of cameras. The main one uses a 50-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization and sits behind a lens with a variable aperture of f/1.4-f/4.0.
The main shooter is joined by a 64-megapixel sensor with a periscope lens that can do 5x of optical zoom and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide. On the front, we have a 13-megapixel camera for selfies, next to a TOF (time-of-flight) sensor for 3D face unlock and portrait mode.
The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro (8GB+256GB) in Black and Silver has an SRP of Php58,999 in the Philippines. On the other hand, the more premium Orange Vegan Leather edition with 8GB + 512GB is priced at Php68,999.
Pre-order this high-end device from November 18 to 24 to get a free HUAWEI Watch GT 3 and 6 months of 200GB Huawei cloud benefits.
