Huawei P50 supply reduced and delivery delayed, reports reveal

Huawei traditionally unveils the P series in the first quarter of the calendar year, but according to recent reports, this might not be the case in 2021. An insider from the Huawei supply chain revealed orders for components are lower this time, and also there are delays in supplying them, which will affect the overall availability of the devices. The Huawei P50 lineup is going to include at least three phones – a vanilla P50 with a Kirin 9000E chipset; a P50 Pro and a P50 Pro+, both running the Kirin 9000 chip, manufactured with Arm architecture. Since the Chinese company had time-related restrictions before halting work with US companies, its chip subsidiary HiSilicon managed to yield just 8.8 million chips, which should cover the Huawei Mate 40 series, the Mate X2 foldable phone, and the upcoming P50 lineup. However, Huawei is not backing down and has no plans to sell its […]
