A Luxury Foldable: HUAWEI P50 POCKET

m.gsmarena.com

Last year was a huge one for Foldable Smartphones. As Samsung and Huawei continued to push the tech-forward with hardware breakthroughs. While Xiaomi and Oppo joined the fight with solid offerings that sold at lower prices. 2022 will surely make further progress to make foldable phones a more common sight in the real world. Honor, once a subsidy of Huawei before going solo, released the first foldable of 2022, but Huawei quickly followed with a new one of its own with Huawei P50 Pocket. Xiaomi, Oppo, Motorola, and Samsung will surely have foldable lined up this year too, and rumors say Vivo will too. In short, every phone brand has either released or plans on releasing a foldable phone.

But in this article, we are going to focus on the current release: HUAWEI P50 POCKET. The P50 Pocket is a ‘normal sized’ rectangular slab with a horizontal folding point that then becomes a small, square-shaped device.

Now, Let’s discuss the hardware and software of the HUAWEI P50 pocket

  • Hardware

    consumer.huawei.com

When the Huawei P50 Pocket is unfolded in its default form, it is a typical slab smartphone, just thinner, at 7.2mm. Its 6.9-inch screen is a bit larger than almost any recent slab phone. The screen looks great, with quad HD resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.

Its backside has two large black circles—a design first seen in the Huawei P50 Pro phone. One circle is a triple-lens camera and the other consists of a circular display.

It can stay halfway folded, so the P50 Pocket sits in a laptop-like L shape. Hardware craftsmanship is top-notch. It feels sturdy, the haptic vibration engine is precise, and the P50 Pocket packs a loud stereo speaker system. The 4,500 mAh battery and Snapdragon 888 chip are both quality components too.

  • Software

Huawei P50 Pocket runs on HarmonyOS in china, while in Europe and other parts of Asia, it runs on EMUI 12. Animations are fast and responsive, there are useful features such as the ability to open an app in a small floating window.

By now most people should be aware that the P50 Pocket cannot run some core Google apps due to ongoing U.S. sanctions. Huawei has its own app store, the AppGallery, continues to add major apps to the platform. Huawei has built a search engine, Petal Search, that directs users to the most trusted source possible to download the apps.

  • Performance

The Snapdragon 888 chip is more than powerful enough to run any app and the 4,000 mAh battery can power the device all day.
Foldable phones, for the most part, have had to compromise in photography, likely due to the complicated nature of a folding body. But Huawei’s P50 Pocket doesn’t suffer from this problem. The 40-megapixel camera here is every bit as great as the excellent Huawei P50 Pro’s main camera. It captures brilliant colors with superb dynamic range, particularly at night.

Conclusion

The Huawei P50 Pocket has stylish, well-built hardware, and its main camera is really great. However, there’s an obstacle that prevents it from being a device for mainstream adoption the way, say, an iPhone 13 is. And no, I’m not talking about the Google situation, which while annoying isn’t unsolvable.

The issue I’m talking about is price: the P50 Pocket retails in Europe starting at €1,299, which converts to around $1,450. In Asian regions like Hong Kong and Singapore, it’s slightly cheaper, but still roughly in that $1,300 and up range. This price is for the white model; the gold “premium edition” costs even more, at €1,599 or around $1,800.

Hope you like the article and it provides you with the needed knowledge about the Smartphone.
