#1 HUAWEI P50 Pocket – Exquisite Craftsmanship Meets Luxurious Design
The HUAWEI P50 Pocket integrates the latest innovations in engineering and materials to create a truly unique design that stands out from the crowd.
At a glance, the HUAWEI P50 Pocket in White shimmers in the sunlight with an eye-catching diamond-thatched weave pattern on account of a layer of 3D sculpted glass across the backplates that lends it premium touch. For a touch of luxury, the P50 Pocket in Premium Gold features 3D sculpted glass with distinctive wing motifs and a luxuriously appointed gold finish that was made in collaboration with renowned designer Iris Van Herpen.
Complementing the 3D sculpted glass is the sensuous feel of steel that adds strength and durability to the sides of the HUAWEI P50 Pro. To add a truly unique touch, the HUAWEI P50 Pocket’s True Chroma Camera array and front cover display both feature rounded housings that evoke the feel of a vintage film camera while adding a distinctive touch. Combined, this makes the HUAWEI P50 Pocket a truly premium design that is the perfect complement to any fashion ensemble.
#2 HUAWEI P50 Pocket – Powerful performance For Work and Play
Power and performance come in equal measure with the HUAWEI P50 Pocket as it features the powerful flagship-grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. Paired with this is 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage with the P50 Pocket in White while the P50 Pocket in Premium Gold features 12GB RAM and 512GB of storage.
To ensure a seamless user experience, HUAWEI has implemented their own EMUI 12 with apps sourced via the AppGallery and their own Petal Search service. To date, the HUAWEI AppGallery features almost all of the applications needed for everyday life from ride hailing apps to banking for Malaysians.
If users need to run Google Mobile Services (GMS), the HUAWEI P50 Pocket can use Gspace to allow for functionality with the aforementioned applications without compromising performance. Add in a vast array of customisable themes that you can change at will to suit your mood and you have a truly functional fashion companion for both work and play.
#3 HUAWEI P50 Pocket – Multidimensional Hinge with Seamless Gap
One of the biggest concerns for foldable smartphones is how seamlessly flat the main folding display is when fully unfurled as well as how seamless the gap is when the phone is folded into its compact mode. The HUAWEI P50 Pocket’s uniquely engineered Multi-DImensional Hinge allows the phone to be just 15.2mm thin when folded and just 7.2mm thin when fully unfolded while revealing a massive 6.9-inch FHD+ OLED 120Hz display.
By employing high strength steel and a new Zirconium-based liquid metal in the Multi-Dimensional hinge, HUAWEI has enabled the hinge to fold such that there is almost no gap between the folded halves of the phone and yet, when unfolded, the main display has almost a nigh-invisible crease that is barely perceptible to touch.
Aesthetics and design are but one aspect of its design though and HUAWEI has ensured that opening the P50 Pocket’s Multidimensional Hinge is as satisfying as opening a cherished present with a smooth draw and with the gentlest of pressure to close it shut.
#4 HUAWEI P50 Pocket – Sensuously Smooth 120Hz Visuals and Rich Sound at Your Fingertips
In order to ensure an unsurpassed visual experience, the HUAWEI P50 Pocket integrates a 6.9-inch foldable OLED touch display which has 120Hz dynamic refresh, allowing for silky smooth animations onscreen.
The display is also rated to support the DCI-P3 colour gamut to offer true-to-life colour reproduction along with support for HDR10+ content while an innovative Nano Optical layer over the display helps to eliminate reflections and glare that would compromise the viewing experience. That’s not all as the HUAWEI P50 Pocket also features stereo speakers flanking the display to offer rich, dimensional sound when playing movies, gaming and more.
#5 HUAWEI P50 Pocket – True Chroma Camera System for Great Shots Night or Day
The HUAWEI P50 Pocket features a sophisticated triple camera dubbed the True Chroma camera system to capture smooth 4K videos and crisp images in daytime or nighttime conditions. A powerful 40MP True Chroma main camera offers up to 10x digital zoom while a 13MP ultra wide angle camera allows for wide angle shots to capture scenery beautifully. A third 32MP Ultra Spectrum camera enables the P50 Pocket to capture accurate colours and additional detail.
What makes the HUAWEI P50 Pocket exceptional is the nature of its design which allows the True Chroma camera system to be employed for selfies too by taking advantage of the rounded cover display as a shutter release, making it one of the most powerful selfie shooters in town.
For video calls, you can flip up the display and take advantage of the 10.7MP punch hole camera placed at the top of the main folding display. Combined, this versatile yet potent camera array truly makes the HUAWEI P50 Pocket a functional fashion companion indeed..
