Huawei released the latest foldable phone P50 Pocket
This stylish flip phone comes with a small external notification window, some interesting camera technology, and a flush fold.
Although until recently, the P50 Pocket may have been regarded as a rival of the Galaxy Flip 3, Samsung can relax a bit due to US sanctions. Since Huawei is no longer able to provide full access to Google’s Android platform, this new flagship smartphone runs Huawei’s own HarmonyOS system.
The P50 Pocket runs Huawei’s own HarmonyOS operating platform, and this smartphone does not have Huawei’s 5G mobile connection camera. Next to it is a 1.04-inch circular OLED window that allows you to browse notifications, schedules, weather, fitness indicators, turn-by-turn navigation, and even Check the time.
When switched to smartphone mode, the diagonal size of the main OLED screen is 6.9 inches (21:9 orientation), the refresh rate is up to 120hz, the resolution is 2790 x 1188 pixels, and the touch sampling rate is 300hz. According to reports, it also supports the DCI-P3 color gamut "to obtain true tones and pictures."
The nano-optical layer can reduce glare, and Huawei believes that this phone "will not show any creases when unfolded." There is also a 10.7-megapixel self-portrait camera on the main screen, but users can also choose to combine the main camera with a touch prompt window to obtain a higher-resolution selfie.
After opening, users will see a 6.9-inch, 2790 x 1188 resolution Huawei OLED display. Internally, Huawei chose the Snapdragon 888 4G mobile platform, equipped with an octa-core processor and Adreno 660 GPU-so yes, there is no 5G here. The standard P50 Pocket has white diamond markings, 8Gb of RAM and 256Gb of storage space, while the premium gold model has feather-like flashes, and the outer cover has 12Gb of RAM and 512Gb of storage.
In addition, it is also equipped with a 4000 mAh battery, supports 40 watts of charging (but also requires an optional supercharging cable and charger), Bluetooth 5.2 supports high-resolution LDAC codec, Wi-Fi- 6 is also very good. The phone can be unlocked with a face scan on the side or a fingerprint reader. In addition, to protect privacy, the camera, microphone or GPS can all be turned off when the phone is folded in the pocket.
The P50 Pocket phone is currently available in China, starting at 8988 yuan (approximately US$1,400), but this phone will not be available in the US market.
