Huawei P50 Pocket is a flip phone with a foldable screen and an unusual cover screen


As expected, Huawei presented its response to the Samsung Galaxy Flip line of smartphones. New Huawei P50 pocket is a modern flip phone with a 6.9-inch 120Hz OLED display that can fold in half so the phone fits easily in a pocket.

Want to use the camera or check your notifications without unfolding the phone first? There’s also a small cover screen placed in a circle that mirrors the design of the phone’s camera bump.

This cover screen is a 1.04-inch, 340 x 340 pixel OLED display, and Huawei says you can use this 1-inch screen to display widgets for all kinds of apps, including maps, weather apps and music players. You can even use it as a viewfinder to help frame your shots when taking a selfie using the smartphone’s main camera system.

These main cameras include a 40MP quad-pixel camera, a 13MP ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree field of view, and a 32MP “ultra-spectrum” camera to capture greater color depth.

The main screen of the phone is a 2790-1188 pixel screen with an aspect ratio of 21:9 and a punch-hole for the 10.7 MP front camera. The screen has a refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 300Hz.

Huawei says its phone has a proprietary hinge that allows the P50 Pocket to fold completely flat, unlike Samsung’s clamshell-style foldables, which leave some space near the fold.

Under the hood, the smartphone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G processor (there’s no 5G support on this model), 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. There’s also a Huawei P50 Pocket Premium Edition with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

Other specs include a side fingerprint sensor and face unlock support, a 4,000mAh battery, a 40W fast charger, and support for WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and NFC. The phone has a UBSB 2.0 Type-C port but no dedicated ehadphone socket.

The smartphone measures 15.2mm thick when folded or 7.2mm when unfolded and weighs 190 grams (6.7 ounces). It comes with Huawei’s EMUI 12 software, which is based on Android 12.

The Huawei P50 Pocket is available in China for around $1400 and up. It’s unclear if or when customers in other countries will be able to purchase the phone.
