Fans of Huawei have a lot to look up to in the next few months as a lot of details regarding their plans have surfaced. The leak mentions upcoming products that include phones and smart displays and when they are expected to arrive.
The source of the leak is Teme (@RODENT950) and he begins with the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro ECG which is expected to launch on December 12. According to him, the smartwatch will go on sale on December 21, this is the same date Huawei says the standard Mate 40 will go on sale too. That is nearly two weeks after it would have been announced. It has been reported that the ECG version will sell for ¥2688 (~$410) when it launches. While he didn’t say, we believe the ECG version of the watch will get a global release next year.
To round off the year, Huawei is also expected to announce a new smart screen too. There are also some other products that should launch and one of them may be the smart display that leaked last month. While Huawei has announced a few smart speakers, it is yet to announce a smart display.
Nova 8 series December/January like V40
Smart screen launch have new version of HarmonyOS for big screens
P50 launch have EMUI 11.1 with Android 11

A second tweet says that the smart screen will launch with a new version of HarmonyOS designed for large displays. There is also mention of the Nova 8 series which may launch this year or might be moved to January like the Honor V40 series.
The tweet also mentions the Mate X2 foldable phone but there is no launch date yet, however, MWC 2021 does seem like a possible time for it to launch. Huawei announced its second foldable device, the Mate Xs back in February, so MWC (Shanghai) 2021 does seem like a plausible time for the Mate X2 to launch. For those who don’t know, the GSMA announced a reshuffle of its events a few months ago. The new calendar puts MWC Shanghai in the first half of the year (February 23 – February 25 next year) while MWC Barcelona will be held between June 28 and July 1.
In March, Huawei will announce the P50 series which is expected to bring new features. Unfortunately, as excited as the phones may be, the flagships will suffer from availability issues just like the Mate 40 series. The Huawei P50 series will run EMUI 11.1 based on Android 11 out of the box.
He also mentions that Huawei will unveil its next-gen flagship tablet, the MatePad Pro 2 later in Spring. The new tablet should come with a new chipset and be available in Wi-Fi and 5G variants.
These dates are unconfirmed and even though the leaker has a good track record, dates can change, so take the info with a pinch of salt.
