To mark the tenth anniversary of the launch of the first Huawei Mate Series smartphones, the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro is now available and is set to change the landscape of mobile photography in the country. In the tradition of the Mate Series, this flagship phone offers generational leaps in terms of technology and innovation as seen in its key features.
The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro brings stylish design and groundbreaking innovations that meet the evolving demands of customers today. In fact, it has already trailblazed its way to garnering the top spot in DxOMark’s smartphone camera global ranking with a Camera score of 149!
Earlier in China, reservations surpassed 2.45 million units which is testament to the customers’ demand for the new HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro. During the First Sale in September, it sold out within just 10 seconds! This phenomenon was followed by long lines of eager customers in front of Huawei company stores.
The much-coveted HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro is available now at offline and online HUAWEI Stores, authorized retail outlets, and leading e-commerce sites Shopee and Lazada with an SRP starting at PHP 58,999 for the Black and Silver versions and PHP 68,999 for the Orange Vegan Leather version.
Futuristic and Elegant Design
True to the Huawei Mate Series design language of iconic symmetry, the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro comes with an elegant Clous de Paris pattern around the camera module for the first time ever, creating an intricate pyramid-shaped ornamentation along with the acclaimed Space Ring Design. This stunning time-honored embossing process that originated in France is coupled with independent cameras to reduce the bulging effect of the lenses. Refined processes streamline the camera module, freeing up space and producing a new kind of layered beauty.
HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro phones come with two different types of rear cover: glass and vegan leather. The glass cover is available in two colors, silver and black, which gives the phone a distinct, elegant finish. The vegan leather version comes in orange, which is inspired by the natural radiant orange rays of the sun.
The industry’s first Kunlun Glass, consists of 10 quadrillion-level nanocrystals, makes the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro more resilient and 10 times more drop resistant. This is verified by the five-star glass drop resistance certification from Switzerland’s SGS. The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro also supports IP68-rated water resistance of up to 6 meters underwater, allowing them to easily handle wet and dusty environments.
The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro comes with a length of 162.1 mm, a width of 75.5 mm, and a thickness of 8.5mm. The silver and black glass versions of the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro weigh 205g while the orange vegan leather version is at 209g. The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro successfully combines elegance with an easy-grip design.
Ground-breaking Ultra Aperture XMAGE Camera
In July this year, Huawei launched its very own mobile imaging brand “XMAGE” with the goal of offering consumers a new shooting paradigm that fuses science with culture, and aesthetics with technology — in terms of technologies, imaging style, and shooting experience.
The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro features a cutting-edge Ultra Aperture XMAGE Camera with a 10-size adjustable physical aperture, which incorporates key advances to the optical system, mechanical structure, imaging technology, and image processing. The smart aperture adjusts to match the aperture size with the scene and shooting scenario identified in Auto mode. Switching to Professional mode allows you to manually adjust the depth of field and degree of blur.
The Ultra Aperture Camera comes equipped with an F1.4 large aperture, working with the XD Fusion Pro image engine and high light intake, to set the image brightness, light and shadow details, as well as cold and warm comparisons to perfection. Night mode captures photos with highly distinct bright and dark regions, even in dimly lit environments. Portrait mode applies natural background blurring to make the subject stand out from their surroundings. The periscope telephoto camera supports a zoom range of up to 200x, bringing scenes from the great beyond right in front of your eyes.
The wide-angle macro camera magnifies details from tiny worlds, presenting millimeter-level strands and dew droplets with outstanding clarity. The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro also supports macro video shooting and macro picture-in-picture (PiP) to accurately convey scenes in motion.
A Powerful Performance
The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro is among the first to run on EMUI 13, which streamlines daily interactions with effortless one-touch navigation. Everything is kept personal, productive, and private with the features that EMUI 13 brings.
Notable features include the SuperStorage which removes duplicate files in an imperceptible way and compresses rarely-used apps. This preserves up to 20 GB of space, leaving more room for more photos and videos that today’s users capture on the daily. SuperHub, on the other hand, allows users to temporarily store images, documents, and text, and share them in batches, with free and easy transfers between apps and devices.
Comprehensive privacy features allow for ultimate peace of mind. The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro supports Image Privacy Protection, which means that when you share an image, the phone automatically erases sensitive information, such as the location and time.
Furthermore, the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro packs a maximum 4700 mAh battery within the slim body and offers 66W wired and 50W wireless fast-charging solutions, to strike an optimal balance between battery life, fast charging, and portability.
It’s About the User Experience
Evolving features to match our everyday needs are innovations that Huawei focus on. For the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro, the Low-Battery Emergency mode activates SuperEnergy Boosting when EMUI 13 detects that the battery level drops to 1%. In Low-Battery Emergency mode, which does not damage the battery lifespan, the phone is able to support 3-hour standby or 12-minute phone calling. This buys you time and allows for transactions and important calls to be completed to ensure that you cover necessities before your battery gets thoroughly depleted.
Moreover, users are now able to access Google Apps from the Huawei AppGallery via GBox. With just a few taps, one can download your favorite apps with just a single login!
At Huawei, innovation never ceases. The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro is a fitting tribute to a decade of Mate innovation, with its stunning design, powerful communications, imaging technology, and nimble smart interactions.
