Huawei P50 Pocket lands in Europe with EMUI 12 and is €250 more expensive than the Galaxy Z Flip3
Huawei has unveiled the P50 Pocket outside China, having launched the smartphone last month in its home market. The P50 Pocket is the company's first foldable smartphone since the Mate X2, and its inaugural foldable flip phone. Huawei continues to market the P50 Pocket as two models, a regular edition and a 'Premium Edition'. However, the latter only has more memory than the former and comes in a different colour.
As expected, Huawei has brought its Premium Gold and White colourways to global audiences, with the black version left in China. To recap, the P50 Pocket has a 6.9-inch OLED display when unfolded and a 1.04-inch secondary display. The 120 Hz main display sits within a 170 x 75.5 x 7.2 mm chassis and is intersected by a 10.8 MP front-facing camera.
The P50 Pocket has a Snapdragon 888 4G SoC too, along with a 40 MP primary camera, a 13 MP ultra-wide and a 32 MP telephoto camera. Additionally, the P50 Pocket has a 4,000 mAh battery and supports 40 W fast charging. Huawei has omitted wireless charging support, for some reason, but it has integrated a fingerprint scanner within the device's power button.
The P50 Pocket starts at €1,299 with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. In other words, the P50 Pocket is €200 more expensive than an equivalent Galaxy Z Flip3 and costs €250 more than Samsung's base model. By contrast, Huawei will charge €1,599 for the P50 Pocket Premium Edition, which has 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. Both models come with EMUI 12, which Huawei recently started rolling out globally to the P40, Mate 30 and Mate 40 series.
