The Huawei P50 Pocket is coming on December 23, and its specs have just leaked. Before we get down to it, though, it’s worth noting that the Huawei P50 Pocket is Huawei’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 competitor. This device will become the company’s first-ever clamshell foldable smartphone.
The Huawei P50 Pocket specs leak points to powerful hardware
So, what can you expect in regards to specs? The Huawei P50 Pocket is said to feature a 6.85-inch display. On the back, it will include a 1-inch circular display, that will be its secondary panel.
Three cameras will sit above the secondary display, in their own circular module. A 50-megapixel main camera (Sony’s IMX766 sensor) will be backed by a 13-megapixel ultrawide unit, and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera (3x optical zoom).
The Kirin 9000 SoC is said to fuel the Huawei P50 Pocket, and it will support 4G connectivity. A 4,100mAh battery has also been mentioned, while it will support 66W fast wired charging.
That’s all the spec info that surfaced thus far. Having said that, the Huawei P50 Pocket design surfaced during a recent photoshoot, basically confirming its design. The variant that appeared is gold-colored, kind of.
There will be two circular cutouts on the back of the phone
There will be two circular cutouts on the back, one for the cameras, and one for the secondary display. The phone’s main display will be protected when the device is folded, and it will fold right down the middle.
We still haven’t seen the phone’s main panel, so we’re not sure if Huawei will utilize a hole punch or not. Chances are it will, though. The bezels around that display are expected to be quite thin.
This is not Huawei’s first rodeo when it comes to foldable smartphones, not at all. The company already released the Huawei Mate X, Mate Xs, and Mate X2. All those phones were larger, the Galaxy Z Fold series competitors.
The Huawei P50 Pocket is the first smaller, clamshell foldable from the company. This phone won’t include Google services, by the way, as the US ban is still in effect.
