As Huawei re-released the Mate series after two years, the Huawei Mate 50 series is also the first phone equipped with a self-research XMAGE imaging system after Huawei and Leica broke up.

DXOMARK says the Huawei Mate 50 Pro also achieves the best photo score to date because of its excellent performance in exposure, focus, and texture/noise, and with the Mate 50 Pro’s combination of powerful hardware and meticulous software tuning, the device delivers top performance in most features in a well-balanced way, taking quality photos and in all lighting conditions video in all lighting conditions, standing out from the competition in low-light imaging.
The Huawei Mate 50 Pro scored at or near the top in all DXO review categories except preview and video. DXOMARK found the Huawei Mate 50 Pro to produce high-quality photos in all usage scenarios, with outstanding performance in low-light conditions; an innovative variable aperture system that is ideal for group portraits and low-light images; great image quality from the ultra wide-angle camera; excellent zoom performance that retains a high level of detail at any distance; and the ability to shoot indoor or outdoor High-quality video.
The downside of the Huawei Mate 50 Pro, on the other hand, is shutter lag in tricky lighting conditions, which can miss some shooting moments; and less accurate preview images compared to the final image.
