Company HUAWEI Announced yesterday a new flagship device called the Huawei P50 Pocket. It is a foldable device, which offers an internal screen in an oyster configuration, similar to the one currently available in Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3. In the meantime, the device is not expected to arrive in Israel, so we will have to make do with only photos. In fact, as of this writing, the device is only available for purchase in China – and in any case, due to the US sanctions imposed on the company in the days of Trump, it does not include Google’s Android operating system.
The full screen size of the device is 6.9 inches (compared to 6.7 of the Samsung folding device), with a resolution of 2790×1188 pixels and an OLED panel. The folding mechanism of the device allows its full folding in half, with no space between the halves of the screens during folding.
In addition, it will offer a fast refresh rate of 120 Hz, a touch sampling rate of 300 Hz, a viewing ratio of 21: 9, support for the DCI-P3 color scale and coating that prevents reflections. The design of the device itself is quite different from smartphones today, with the back featuring a pair of large circles, similar to the P50 launched earlier this year. However, in contrast, it contains the rear camera array in one circle, while the other circle is a 1.4-inch touch screen.
The new device includes Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 processor, contrary to rumors that it will come with the company’s processor. It also includes a 4000 mAh battery, much larger than that offered by Samsung in the Flip 3, and support for fast 40W wired charging. The rear camera system includes three lenses, including a main lens with a resolution of 40 megapixels, and a 10.7-megapixel camera is located on the front of the device. However, the device that runs the Harmony OS 2 operating system from HUAWEI does not support fifth generation browsing.
The device will be available in a number of different versions and memory volumes, with its price starting at 8,988 yuan (which is about $ 1,411). It is available in black, white and diamond colors (which includes a unique cladding) as well as in a premium version in gold color, which also includes a unique cladding.
