It features a unique pill-shaped camera design, and run on the company's own HarmonyOS 2 mobile operating system. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G chipset. That said, a feature that stands out in testing is its display, as per DxOMark.

The Huawei P50 Pro has overtaken Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra in the smartphone display rankings by DxOMark. It is now two points ahead of the Samsung offering. For the unaware, the P50 Pro sports a 6.6-inch full-HD+ OLED curved display with up to 120Hz refresh rate.
