The Snapdragon 888 4G is the main processor for this new flip smartphone by Huawei.
When it comes to the display, it measures 6.9 inches diagonally when unfolded hence offering a 21:9 display, with pixel density of 442ppi, and support for 1.07 billion colours and the P3 wide colour gamut.
It also supports a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, as well as 300Hz touch sampling rate.
The Super Privacy mode automatically also automatically kicks in when the smartphone is folded, hence disabling the cameras, microphone and location. These options are re-enables upon unfolding.
In terms of photography, the new flip flagship smartphone introduces Ultra Spectrum Camera which takes HUAWEI Image to new heights with the improved HUAWEI XD Fusion Pro image engine that now supports Ultra Spectrum Image Technology.
This is supported by a 40MP True-Chroma Camera, a 13MP Ultra Wide Angle Camera, a 32MP Ultra Spectrum Camera, a 10-Channel Multi-Spectrum Sensor and an Ultra Spectrum illuminator.
The Ultra Wide Angle Lens has a 120-degree wide field of view, and the Ultra Spectrum Fluorescence Photography feature can also capture content and details that are unseen by the human eye.
For selfie lovers, portrait selfie algorithms are used to boost low light performance.
The hinge, an issue with most foldable and flip smartphones, introduces an all-new hinge design which according to Huawei, enables the smartphone to fold seamlessly into a slim and pocketable form.
This is achieved by using a new-generation Multi-Dimensional Hinge and Multi-Dimensional Lifting design which now allows the smartphone to achieve a seamless fold and slim form factor.
Zirconium-based liquid metal and 2,100MPa Ultra-high Strength Steel is used to build the hinge system.
In terms of battery, the smartphone packs a 4,000 mAh battery and supports 40W Huawei SuperCharge for effortless, high-speed top-up.
Last but not least, the HUAWEI P50 Pocket comes in White and Premium Gold for global markets.
