Huawei and Leica have been collaborating for several years, producing good flagships with great photo capabilities. As a result, their cameras have repeatedly ranked # 1 on DxOMark rankings. By the way, the first gadget created together was the 2016 Huawei P9. But now it looks like the Huawei-Leica collaboration is ending.
Insider @ RODENT950, who is known for leaks about Chinese innovations, revealed that the companies are diverging and the Huawei P50 series will be the last joint project. Moreover, the partnership between the two companies fell from Leica software and hardware to simple branding. Therefore, most likely, you should not wait for any new Leica technologies. And all we get is the slogan “Co-development with Leica”.
The "Co-engineered with Leica" tag has become more of a guarantee of a good camera for Huawei.

Rumor has it that now Leica is looking for a new partner, and companies such as Xiaomi, Honor, and Sharp could take Huawei’s place.
