Huawei P50 Pocket: Huawei Launches its Take on Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

Huawei P50 Pocket

Huawei has finally launched its long-awaited foldable flip phone, the P50 Pocket in China, teased in a photo shoot earlier this month.

Huawei claims its proprietary hinge provides P50 Pocket a zero-gap design when folded. When unfolded, the P50 Pocket’s 6.9-inch OLED display offers a resolution of (2,790×1,188) pixels along with a refresh rate and touch sampling rate of 120Hz and 144Hz, respectively.

As for its internal specifications, the Huawei P50 Pocket features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage along with a 4,000mAh battery.

When it comes to the cameras, the Huawei P50 Pocket has four—a 10.7MP ultra-wide selfie camera on the front accompanied by a triple camera array on the back. The triple camera array further consists of a 40MP True Chroma sensor, a 32MP Ultra Spectrum sensor, and a 13MP Ultra-wide shooter.

Additionally, the device also features a 1.04-inch display on the outside that can display a variety of widgets like weather, alarm, calendar and music player, info from third-party apps, and much more. But, unlike the rectangle external display found on the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Huawei has opted for a circular display which complements the device’s quite large camera module.

Pricing & Availability

In terms of pricing and availability, the P50 Pocket is only available in China and comes in two variants:

  • The Premium edition, which comes with a golden machined finish and 12GB of RAM paired with 512GB of storage, is priced at 10,988 yuan (approx. Rs 1,29,570).
  • The standard P50 Pocket with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage which comes in a white finish and silver accents, is priced at 8,988 yuan (approx. Rs 1,05,986).

Overall, the Huawei P50 Pocket seems to be an excellent foldable compared to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, which features a smaller battery at 3,300mAh. However, the P50 Pocket is still not worth recommending as Huawei’s Android-based HarmonyOS is nowhere near the operating systems found on devices with Google services on board.
