Huawei has revealed a launch date for its second clamshell foldable smartphone. The device in question is the rumored Huawei P50 Pocket S handset. Huawei has also confirmed its name, and it is, in fact, the Huawei P50 Pocket S.

Do note that this phone will become official in China first. We’re not sure if it will make its way to global markets, but the Huawei P50 Pocket did. So, this device may do the same.

Huawei did confirm that the phone will arrive in six different colors. Those colors are: black, blue, green, pink, white, and yellow. That’s what we know officially, every other piece of info that we have is unofficial.

The Huawei P50 Pocket S is rumored to utilize the Snapdragon 778G 4G SoC. The Huawei P50 Pocket includes the Snapdragon 888 4G chip. 5G is not supported due to Huawei’s ban issued by the US, that’s a whole other story, though.

This phone may not feature a cover display

The device is also said not to feature a secondary display, unlike the Huawei P50 Pocket. That is one of the ways Huawei aims to lower the cost of the phone compared to its sibling.

The Huawei P50 Pocket S is expected to include a 120Hz OLED display, though, which will be foldable. The ‘XMAGE’ tech Huawei introduced a while back is also said to be included.

Other than the exclusion of the secondary display, the design of this phone should be very similar to the Huawei P50 Pocket. In fact, it may even be the same, save for that second display.
