Huawei P50 Pro first impression - Another great flagship design as always


It's been a while since we last held a Huawei phone. But thanks to Huawei Malaysia, we got ourselves a P50 Pro phone unit. In this article, it will be the first impression of the device and we believe that there are still many faithful Huawei fans looking forward to it.

The variant that we got is the P50 Pro in Cocoa Gold and we must say that it certainly caught our attention. At first glance, it is as if the body is coated in refined and sparkling gold. However, the back is completely made of glass and this attracts fingerprint smudges rather easily. But, you can always slap on a protective casing to solve this issue.


Smooth and gold, mhmm


Definitely one of the more eye-catching camera designs

Obviously, the most striking feature is the rear camera design on the P50 Pro. It has two huge black circular camera modules and this will certainly catch attention from anyone nearby. On the top part, the phone features three camera lenses while the fourth lens and LED flash are located right below. One of our writers also thought the P50 Pro looks much better than the P40 Pro and we couldn't agree more.

Meanwhile, the P50 Pro sports a 6.6-inch curved OLED display and supports up to a 120Hz refresh rate. We also found an in-display fingerprint sensor and this unlocks fairly fast and accurately as expected. You can also see a single front camera cutout at the top centre that looks much simpler than the pill-shaped front camera from its predecessor. With this design, the phone offers a larger and wider visual experience.

The front camera is 13MP

In terms of sound, the P50 Pro has a pair of dual stereo speakers that sounds great. Even at maximum volume, the sound quality is quite clear so we think most users will have a good time watching videos, listening to songs and playing mobile games on it. Since this is a first impression article, we haven't really touched on the camera and mobile performance so please be patient as these will be covered in later articles.

Although we can't comment much on the camera performance yet, we were told that there are quite a few camera features onboard. This includes a 200x zoom mode, XD Fusion Pro Super HDR, True Focus Fast Capture and an AIS Pro True Steady smart stabiliser for 4K video recording. Of course, the P50 Pro is running on an HMS system with a built-in AppGallery to let users download the apps they want.
