As mentioned, Huawei is about to present its first folding smartphone in flip format. After the Huawei P50 Pocket was initially only carefully teased, the device can now be seen in a Chinese fashion magazine – including a round external display.
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has now shown the P50 Pocket in its entirety for the first time in the course of cooperation with the fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar before the official presentation expected from December 23rd. Obviously, one wants to appeal to a fashion-conscious clientele with the smartphone, which can be folded vertically, which is also reflected in the design.
The photos, which were published via Harper’s Bazaar China’s Weibo account, show the Huawei P50 Pocket both folded and slightly open. They confirm the metal frame and the eye-catching patterns on the external covers. It can also be seen that the fingerprint reader has been integrated into the fingerprint reader positioned on the side of the housing, as is so often the case.
The USB Type-C port and the two speaker grilles at the lower end are also clearly visible, as is the camera module with its round frame, which apparently consists of three sensors. For the first time, however, another detail can be seen: Huawei installed a second display directly below the camera module on the outside of the P50 Pocket, which with its round shape clearly stands out from what is known from devices from other manufacturers.
The additional screen is obviously used to display notifications and the time, but can also provide a preview of self-portraits in order to create better photos and videos. Huawei itself does not provide any details about the displays of the P50 Pocket, but the analyst Ross Young provides information from the supply chain.
According to him, the main display of the Huawei P50 Pocket is 6.85 inches and thus slightly larger than, for example, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 with its 6.7-inch foldable OLED panel. According to him, the round display attached to the outside uses a non-flexible OLED panel with a diameter of one inch. Huawei tries to compensate for the additional costs that arise from the use of a round design by using the panel, which is manufactured on a glass substrate.
