Huawei has formalized its new folding smartphone P50 Pocket. The Chinese manufacturer uses a clamshell design, which provides a specific procedure. However this smartphone is disconnected from 5G and Google services. It is difficult to go into the global market with these two drawbacks.

Elegant style that is not unanimous
The P50 pocket has an elegant style that is not unanimous in white or gold. The 15.2mm thick fold and 7.2mm stretched set weighs exactly 190g.
Despite this format, there are some technical compromises in the P50 pocket. It is equipped with an OLED screen, its variable refresh rate is up to 120 Hz and displays 6.9 inches across the large screen at 2790 x 1188 pixels. You may also have noticed the small screen on the front: 1.04 inch (60 Hz) touchscreen definition is 340 x 340 pixels. This is almost a smartwatch screen. This allows you to verify some information without having to open the phone. Huawei chose a circular screen, Samsung chose a bar.
In terms of performance, Huawei has opted for the Snapdragon 888 over 4G only. 5G is not, of course due to US restrictions, but the powerful 2021 processor. With 8GB or 12GB of RAM, 256 or 512GB of storage, the P50 Pocket eventually makes some compromises. It has WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 (PLE, SPC, AAC, LDAC).
For on-board cameras, there are three sensors:
- Grand-angle: 40 megapixel True-Chroma camera (f / 1,8)
- Ultra wide angle: 13 megapixels (f / 2.2)
- Dedicated camera for bright photos: 32 mega pixel ultra spectrum camera (f / 1.8)
The main camera can shoot in 4K and has full HD @ 960fps slow motion mode. Note that Huawei has tried to use the circular camera module of its other smartphones. On the other hand, there is no telephoto camera, the front camera is “only” 10.7 megapixels (f / 2.2).
As for the battery … it is reported to be 4000 mAh. This is undoubtedly the most important point, the weak point of the smartphone Z Flip3. To get an accurate idea of the autonomy of a smartphone, it is necessary to test it. You can still rely on supercharge technology with a 40 watt wire for very fast charging.
Huawei’s announcement only refers to the Chinese release, and it’s not clear whether the P50 Pocket can expect a global release. However it will be disconnected from 5G and Google services … with these two drawbacks it is difficult to get in the global market.
