Huawei launches its Mate series in the second half of every year with loads of premium offerings such as a brand new processor, a powerful camera, and much more. Meanwhile, a piece of disappointing news has arrived regarding this year’s Mate series phones.
According to the info, Huawei may not unveil its Mate 50 series phones this year. This will be the first time for the Chinese OEM since 2013 that we won’t see the second-half flagships. Although, Huawei is yet to respond on this matter.
Usually, the new Mate series launch around September every year with a new high-end chipset, which meant to compete with the OEMs such as Samsung and Apple. However, this may change this time.
The reason being chip shortage, this is because the company can’t manufacture any new Kirin SoCs from TSMC. This is the only reason which hinders the arrival of the Mate 50 series.
The chip shortage also took Huawei’s new P series phones. The P50 series was meant to come in March this year which is now delayed and shifted to the second half.
Though Huawei has saved a big stock of chips and other required components those are too diminishing with every new product launch. While we still wait for the official confirmation which also seems to be the same as this one.
