Huawei has officially introduced the P50 Pocket, a clamshell-style folding cellphone that has a round, 1-inch external show for fast access to notifications and widgets. The tool launches in China, although US sanctions which mean Huawei can’t use key tech like Google’s Android OS imply the P50 Pocket won’t make any impact in the West.
Huawei teased the handset in advance this month with a photoshoot targeted at the P50 Pocket premium version that seemed in Harper’s Bazaar China. The version of the device become created by Dutch designer Iris van Herpen. It has a gold or silver end and a 3-D sample at the outside surface that’s ordinary of van Herpen’s work, corresponding to feathers or leaves.
When opened up, the Pocket’s OLED screen is 6.9-inches in size, with a 21:9 ratio and 120Hz refresh price. The device weighs one hundred ninety grams and is just 7.2mm thick Huawei as compared it to the iPhone 13 pro-Max which weighs 238 grams and is 7.65mm thick. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G SoC, a 4,000mAh battery, and runs Huawei’s harmony OS 2.
The P50 Pocket’s foremost camera array has a 40-megapixel predominant sensor, 13-megapixel wide perspective lens, and 32-megapixel “super spectrum” lens which Huawei says captures a greater variety of color. There’s a hole-punch digital camera built into the main display, but Huawei notes that the phone’s foldable design makes it more convenient to use the primary digicam for taking selfies, with the 1-inch cover screen doubling up as a viewfinder.
Huawei is positioning that identical “cowl display” as a big part of the P50 Pocket’s attraction. As well as showing notifications or the time, the display can be used for widgets, letting users control songs, follow guidelines, and so on. So, as an example, in case you’re the usage of your smartphone to navigate in a new metropolis, the duvet display will show discreet, flip-by-turn guidelines, instead of forcing you to open up the huge 6.9-inch fundamental show to test your function.
