The Huawei P50 Pro will be smaller than its predecessor, according to info from @OnLeaks, who published the first tantalizing render of the upcoming flagship. The display will measure 6.6”, which means it’s closer in size to the P40 than the P40 Pro (which has a 6.76” panel).
The left and right sides of the display still have a curve with a very tight radius, but Huawei won’t repeat mistakes of the past – there are hardware buttons on the side.
This design keeps the phone as compact as possible. It will measure 159 mm tall and 73 mm wide, which is again closer to the vanilla P40 than the Pro model (which is 162.9 x 75.5 mm, for comparison).
It’s not just the smaller diagonal, P50 Pro’s display will have two other notable changes. First, the wide dual selfie camera punch hole will be replaced with a smaller single camera. Second, there will be a traditional earpiece, replacing the acoustic display that was introduced with the P30 Pro.
According to a report by The Elec, the Huawei P50 Pro will use Samsung and LG OLED displays and will be powered by the Kirin 9000 chip (though it’s still not clear if TSMC has been cleared to trade with Huawei, but other companies got the green light).
