Huawei has unveiled a new foldable smartphone in China. The Huawei P50 Pocket is the world’s newest foldable smartphone. Unlike the Mate X-series, the P50 Pocket, like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, has a flip phone folding mechanism. A Snapdragon 888 processor powers it. Despite having top-of-the-line specs, the device does not support 5G networks. The phone is currently available in China. There is no word on when the device will be released in other countries.
Price of Huawei P50 Pocket
The Huawei P50 Pocket costs CNY 8988 in China, where it was released today (roughly Rs 1,06,000). This model comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. A CNY 10,988 Gold Edition with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage is also available (roughly Rs 1,29,900). The phone is also available in Diamond White and Black.
Specifications and features
The P50 Pocket is equipped with a 6.9-inch foldable display with a resolution of 2790 x 1188 pixels and a camera cutout in the top center. The display has a 21:9 aspect ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate. It can also display up to 10.7 billion colours and has a touch sampling rate of 300Hz.
A tiny 1-inch cover screen on the outside allows you to check notifications, the date, and the time, among other things.
The Snapdragon 888 SoC, which supports 4G networks, powers the phone. The phone has up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. It has a 4000 mAh battery and 40W fast charging capability.
A 40MP primary camera sensor and a 13MP ultrawide sensor are part of a triple-camera setup on the foldable phone’s back. There’s also a 32MP ultra-spectrum sensor. The device is 15.2mm thick and weighs 190 grams when folded. When fully unfolded, the phone is 7.2mm thick. It does not include Google Mobile Service and instead comes with Huawei’s HarmonyOS preinstalled. Outside of China, there is currently no information on the device’s availability.
