The company claims that due to restrictions, 5G technologies are not available to it.
The P50 and P50 Pro devices use the 4G chipset from Qualcomm. This means that the restrictions imposed by the administration of former US President Donald Trump continue to affect the company, writes CNBC.
At the same time, smartphone manufacturers are facing a shortage of chips, mainly due to the closure of factories due to Covid-19 and increased demand for electronics.
The CEO of Huawei’s consumer business group, Richard Yu, said that the company is not available 5G technology due to US restrictions and it is forced to switch to 4G. According to him, the devices retain maximum performance, and the speed drop will be insignificant.
Huawei P is known for advanced camera technology.
The P50 camera has three lenses: a large 50-megapixel sensor, a 40-megapixel monochrome lens and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. The P50 Pro has a 64-megapixel telephoto lens with an optical zoom of 3.5 times, which will increase the image by 200 times.
In 2019, the US Department of Justice accused Huawei of industrial espionage, technology theft and bank fraud during the trade war with China. At the same time, the company was blacklisted by the Ministry of Trade. In November 2020, due to sanctions, Huawei sold the Honor brand. In February, the Chinese company said it would challenge the decision of the US authorities.
