design and Display
The Huawei P50 Pro seems to have been cut from the same fabric as the regular P50, however, what really makes the difference here, is the curved display we have here and also the colour variants.
Enthusiasts in the market for this device, we have Black, Gold, White, Pink, Blue, as colour options, as opposed to just Black, Gold, and white on its less premium sibling.
Taking a look at the display, reveals we have a slightly bigger 6.6 inch OLED display as opposed to 6.5 inches on its less premium sibling. This display also appears to be curved, which isn’t really the case on the regular P50.
The highlights of this display include a resolution of 1228 x 2700 Pixels, a density of 450 PPI, and a 120Hz refresh rate.
Moving on to the rear, we see that the story is basically the same. Here we also have two very prominent circles bearing the cameras. We also have a write-up describing the camera and the Huawei branding, which indicates it’s a Huawei smartphone.
What’s more, we also have water and dust protection on this smartphone, under the umbrella of the IP68 rating.
As mentioned in the introductory paragraph, the Huawei P50 Pro offers a more robust camera setup. This fact is actually based on the offerings on its rear setup.
On the rear, we have a 50MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.8, a 64MP periscope camera with an aperture of f/3.5 as opposed to 12MP on the regular P50.
we also have a 13MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.2 and an added 40MP black and white camera, which isn’t on its less premium sibling. Video recording on this camera is capped at 4k @ 60fps.
On the selfie side, we have got a single 13MP camera with an aperture of f/2.4, video recording on this camera is capped at 4k @ 60fps.
Hardware and Software
On the performance side, the Huawei P50 Pro rocks the same Snapdragon 888 4G processor, as its less premium sibling. However, it does offer more RAM and more storage.
Instead of just 8GB ram as seen on its less premium sibling, here we have 8GB / 12GB RAM options. We also have 128GB / 256GB / 512GB storage options, as opposed to 128 / 256GB on the other.
The battery was bumped up from 4100mAh to 4360mAh here, but it still retains the same 66W fast charge capacity.
On the software side, we have the HarmonyOS 2.0, which is a Huawei provision as an alternative to Android.
The Huawei P50 Pro features a USB Type-C 3.1 Port with OTG support. It also features NFC, low energy Bluetooth 5.2.
Please note that there isn’t a 3.5mm headphone jack, so private audio listening will only be possible via a type-c or a Bluetooth headphone
Internet connectivity is capped at 4G LTE which means enthusiasts won’t get access to 5G connectivity.
