While the company has shown off the phone to the public in Malaysia through a series of showcases at Huawei Experience Stores across the country, it is only today that Huawei has officially launched the new P50 Pocket in our market.
In case you missed the news, the P50 Pocket is powered by the 4G variant of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. As you may expect, the flip-style foldable phone carries two displays including the main 6.9-inch OLED screen that has a native resolution of 2790 x 1188, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 10.7MP selfie camera while there is also the circular 1.04-inch OLED cover screen.
Other than that, the P50 Pocket also carries a 40MP camera as its main photography tool which is being accompanied by a 13MP ultra-wide camera and 32MP Ultra Spectrum camera. All of these cameras are housed in a circular module which also includes a 10-channel multi-spectrum sensor and laser autofocus system.
Completing its general specifications is a 4000mAh battery that supports the company’s 40W Huawei SuperCharge charger. Huawei also didn’t forget to highlight that there is no gap visible when one unflips the P50 Pocket unlike some of the foldable devices out there.
Price-wise, the standard model which comes in white alongside 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage goes for RM5,999 while the gold-coloured Premium Edition with 12GB RAM and 512GB internal storage can be obtained for RM7,299.
