Details on Huawei P50 and P50 Pro+ screen size is scarce as of now, however, we expect rumour mill to unveil the aspects in the coming weeks.

Besides improved industrial design, the smartphones will likely get enhanced photographic capability.
Speaking of the camera configuration, the next-gen Huawei P-series is tipped to sport super imaging system and Leica branded quad/penta lens with super zoom that is said to offer up to 200x digital zoom. The devices are expected to run EMUI 11 based Android 11 OS. In terms of battery backup, the P50 and P50 Pro+ could equip a 4,200mAh and 4,300mAh battery respectively. The smartphones will likely come with 66W/50W fast charging report.
