Huawei Mate 50 Series Now In Malaysia ; King-Tier Photography From RM 3,699
Stepping into the 10th anniversary milestone since the first inception of Mate series in 2012, HUAWEI Malaysia today officially announced the launch of its latest member in addition to the flagship Mate product line, HUAWEI Mate 50 Series, priced starting at RM 3,699 onwards.
There will be 3 variants :
HUAWEI Mate50 Pro
HUAWEI Mate50 Pro Orange Vegan Leather Edition (Yes it’s different)
So What’s New?
Aside from the colors, the HUAWEI Mate 50 Series represents a major step forward in smartphone aesthetics, thanks to the symmetrical Space Ring Design and an intricate design. The Mate 50 Series phones pack an Ultra Aperture XMAGE Camera, which boasts the first-ever 10-scale adjustable physical aperture and most versatile photography capabilities ever seen on a Mate smartphone. Thanks to the rock-solid “Kunlun Glass”, it boosts the phone’s drop resistance by 10 times (under controlled lab conditions).
There’s also EMUI 13, which is the brand’s latest operating system for Malaysia. It highlights the SuperHub feature, for instance, facilitates effortless data and file transfer between apps and devices, breaking through long standing barriers that had separated different platforms from each other.
“Over the past decade, the Mate Series has consistently pushed the envelope to make ground-breaking innovations broadly accessible. Each new generation of Mate smartphones has brought together a whole host of state-of-the-art HUAWEI technologies. The HUAWEI Mate 50 Series continues this proud legacy, pioneering ongoing innovations and providing a breath of fresh air.” Richard Yu, HUAWEI’s Executive Director of the board, Consumer BG CEO, and Intelligent Automotive Solution BU CEO
HUAWEI Mate 50 Series phones come with two different types of rear cover, glass and vegan leather. The glass cover is available in two colours, Silver and Black, which give the phone a distinct, elegant finish. The vegan leather version comes in Orange, which draws inspiration by the sun’s orange rays.
What On Earth Is Kunlun Glass?
Well, it’s a special glass material made of 10 quadrillion-level nanocrystals, which is the result of composite ion strengthening. This means the glass can certainly take a beating (or dropping), with the paper work to back it up (five-star glass drop resistance certification from Switzerland’s SGS). The HUAWEI Mate 50 Series phones come with IP68-rated water resistance of up to 6 metres underwater.
Oh boy, buckle that brain of yours.
HUAWEI launched its very own mobile imaging brand “XMAGE” in July 2022, with the goal of offering consumers a new shooting paradigm that fuses science with culture, and aesthetics with technology in terms of imaging style and shooting experience.
The HUAWEI Mate 50 Series features a cutting-edge Ultra Aperture XMAGE Camera with a 10-size adjustable physical aperture, which incorporates key advances to the optical system, mechanical structure, imaging technology, and image processing. The smart aperture adjusts to match the aperture size with the scene and shooting scenario identified in Auto mode. Switching to Professional mode allows you to manually adjust the depth of field and degree of blur.
Advanced hardware and algorithms are deeply embedded to enhance static image shooting. The Ultra Aperture Camera comes equipped with an F1.4 large aperture, working with the XD Fusion Pro image engine and high light intake, to set the image brightness, light and shadow details, as well as cold and warm comparisons to perfection. Night mode captures photos with highly distinct bright and dark regions, even in dimly lit environments. Portrait mode applies natural background blurring to make the subject stand out from their surroundings. The periscope telephoto camera supports a zoom range of up to 200x, bringing scenes from the great beyond right in front of your eyes.
The wide-angle macro camera magnifies details from tiny worlds, presenting millimetre-level strands and dew droplets with outstanding clarity. The HUAWEI Mate 50 Series also supports macro video shooting and macro picture-in-picture (PiP) to accurately convey scenes in motion.
The latest flagship model comes in three variants:
HUAWEI Mate50 (8 GB RAM + 256 GB ROM), priced at RM3,699, available in Black and Silver colour options
HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro (8 GB RAM + 256 GB ROM), priced at RM 4,499
