4 reasons why the new HUAWEI Mate50 Pro – the futuristic tech flagship smartphone makes the perfect gift this end of year
Available now for pre-order in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Riyadh, 15 December 2022: After much anticipation, the announcement of the HUAWEI Mate50 Pro is finally bringing a breath of fresh air to the smartphone world. Being the latest premium flagship smartphone from Huawei, it lives up to expectations with a myriad of ground-breaking innovations. So, if you want to make this season special for your loved ones, then why not gift them the futuristic tech flagship smartphone with the best Ultra Aperture XMAGE Camera, the HUAWEI Mate50 Pro? Here are four reasons why you should.
The HUAWEI Mate50 Pro comes in two different types of rear cover, glass and vegan leather. The glass cover is available in two colours, Silver and Black, while the vegan leather version comes in Orange and it is now available for pre-orders in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at a starting price 4,299 SAR from Huawei’s online platforms as well as certified retailers.
The pre-order offer is also available from December 15th through the 21st with special gifts worth 2049 SAR including: HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 46 mm Classic Edition, Mate50 Series HUAWEI Care VIP service, HUAWEI Petal One VIP subscription, and a free premium 6 months subscription to Viu and a 3 months VIP subscription to STC TV.
Elegant symmetry with a classic touch
Representing a major step forward in smartphone aesthetics, the HUAWEI Mate50 Pro features the symmetrical Space Ring Design and an eye-catching Clous de Paris step-patterned embossing design. The Clous de Paris Pattern is incorporated into its symmetrical Space Ring camera layout in a way that brings out the textures under all lighting conditions. And this reflects the unmatched level of attention to detail that went into crafting HUAWEI Mate50 Pro.
Ultra Aperture XMAGE Camera: Optical-level bokeh
The Ultra Aperture XMAGE Camera system on the HUAWEI Mate50 Pro is the next step in the evolution of smartphone photography and sees significant upgrades across the board. It comes with a 10-size adjustable physical aperture that provides incredible flexibility to the depth of field. For example, when taking a portrait, you can use a wide aperture to blur the background and highlight the subject. When shooting a landscape, a smaller aperture can produce richer details along the edges. In Auto mode, the smart aperture adjusts the aperture size based on the shooting conditions.
HUAWEI Mate50 Pro can do wonders in low light scenarios, thanks to the ultra-large f/1.4 aperture working seamlessly with the XD Fusion Pro image engine to preserve brightness and contrast. Lack of light is no longer an obstacle if you want to capture mesmerising cityscapes at night with all their neon-lit glory. The Night mode helps you to capture photos with highly distinct bright and dark regions, even in dim environments. The Portrait mode feature adds a pleasing natural background blur to allow the subject to stand out from their surroundings. On the other hand, if you want some one-of-a-kind wildlife shots or impressive close-ups of intricate architectures, the periscope telephoto camera with up to a whopping 200x zoom range has you covered.
The XMAGE filters, including Original, Vivid, and Bright, bring beautiful styles that complement the new Ultra Aperture XMAGE Camera. XMAGE Original filter captures true-to-life colours, textures and details; XMAGE Vivid filter captures jaw-dropping scenes with an innovative imaging system dialing up the contrast between bright and dark areas; and XMAGE Bright Filter, which improves dark and dreary shots by balancing light and clear contrasts.
Opening new avenues for smartphone performance
There are few things worse than the feeling of seeing your phone screen smashed to smithereens because of a fleeting moment of carelessness. But with the durable Kunlun Glass on HUAWEI Mate50 Pro, you can go about your day in peace. The Kunlun Glass improves the drop resistance of your phone by a whopping 10 times. So mountain bikers can ride for miles, even over the bumpiest of off-road terrains, without a worry. The phone also supports IP68-rated water resistance of up to 6 metres underwater, allowing it to easily handle wet and dusty environments.
The HUAWEI Mate50 Pro display provides you with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and 1440 Hz PWM dimming, which reduces flickering to relieve eye fatigue. Users can browse the web or watch their favourite movies without straining their eyes. Combined with the P3 Wide Colour Gamut, fine-tuned colours are calibrated to ensure the highest visual authenticity.
HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro packs a 4700 mAh battery and supports 66W wired and 50W wireless fast charging to strike an optimal balance between battery life, fast charging, and portability. While the battery is large enough to sustain heavy usage, the innovative low-battery Emergency Mode gets activated when the battery level falls to 1% to extend the battery life further. In the low-battery Emergency Mode, the phone can support 3-hour standby or 12 minutes of calling. The phone also comes with a handy feature called SuperStorage that can automatically detect duplicated files on the phone and offer you the option to compress them in the HUAWEI Optimiser app.
Enhanced convenience and productivity
The HUAWEI Mate50 Pro is the first smartphone from Huawei to run on EMUI 13, which streamlines daily interactions with effortless one-touch navigation. EMUI 13 introduces the Super Device SuperHub feature, an innovative file transfer capability with the HUAWEI Mate50 Pro. Users can simply press and hold on any text, pictures, videos and files, and drag to SuperHub’s floating window to store the files temporarily. Users can then switch to another application and select the files within the SuperHub for a seamless cut and paste. With the batch transfer capability, users can also use SuperHub for multi-file transfer between their smartphone, tablet and PC.
On the one hand, it improves efficiency and avoids the process of users switching back and forth between multiple applications and duplicating them. On the other hand, the visual presentation of the copied content allows users to freely combine and arrange the copied content, which brings higher information transmission efficiency. With EMUI 13, Multi-Screen Collaboration now also supports Multi-Window on HUAWEI Notepad and the proprietary Mail app. When the smartphone and PC are connected via Super Device, users can now enable split-screen usage of the mobile apps on the PC screen, bringing more convenience when browsing and using apps.
Additionally, EMUI 13 brings enhanced cross-device collaboration capabilities with Super Device, supporting up to 10 types of smart device connectivity combinations and collaboration. This means that users can enjoy enhanced smart office, entertainment, fitness and travel experience with Huawei’s suite of smart devices. With Super Device, Huawei has taken another step forward in achieving the ultimate goal of bringing Seamless AI Life to consumers.
