After months of waiting and a number of weeks and month-long delays, Huawei has finally unveiled the next generation of the Huawei P50 series at its Huawei P50 launch event. The new devices come with a circular camera module as we’ve seen previously in leaks, and come equipped with the X chipset.

At the Huawei P50 launch event today, Huawei has released two devices, the Huawei P50, and Huawei P50 Pro flagship devices. The event started out by first taking a look at some of the iconic devices from the past, including the P9, P10, P20, P30, P40 series from the company.
