  • Huawei has announced that the Mate 50 series will launch on September 6.
  • This will be the first Huawei flagship line after its partnership with Leica ended.

Huawei has had a tough time since a US trade ban was instituted against it in 2019. The company’s phones no longer have Google integration while sanctions also mean that it’s unable to offer cutting-edge in-house Kirin processors. That hasn’t stopped the brand from releasing new flagship phones though, and the next high-end series is coming soon.

Huawei announced on Weibo that it will launch the Mate 50 series on September 6. It specifically mentioned that this would be a series, so we’re guessing that a standard Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro will be on offer at the very least. Check out the event poster below.
