Huawei P50 Pocket goes official without 5G connectivity

Huawei P50 Pocket Premium Edition

After several leaks in the past few days, Huawei has finally officially unveiled its first foldable flip smartphone, the P50 Pocket. The device, meant to be pocket-friendly, has a compact design and merely weigh 190 grams.

It has a circular 1-04-inch AMOLED screen on its cover that allow users to view app notifications, time, date, to answer/end calls, or to use it as a viewfinder when taking selfie. Apart from these, the cover (or front) display can also be used for changing music tracks (prev/next/pause/play), as a QR scanner, to view calendar, to check weather, and to do lots more.

On the inside is a foldable 6.9-inch OLED screen with 21:9 aspect ratio. The display has a Full HD+ resolution and a punch hole above it that housed a camera. Speaking of photography, the P50 Pocket have triple rear cameras - 40MP main, 13MP ultra-wide, and 32MP Ultra Spectrum (which is used for color rendering).

Diving in, under the hood is a Snapdragon 888 octa-core chipset that only offers 4G (sorry, no 5G), clubbed with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. There is a Premium Edition of the Pocket P50 that have 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. Unlike the standard model that comes in Black and White colors, the Premium Edition is themed in Gold color.

The battery that powered the smartphone is 4000mAh, and it can be fast-charge using the 44W power brick that is included in the retail box.
