Huawei is launching a new foldable this week, the company announced through its official Weibo account on December 14.

Unlike 2019’s Huawei Mate X, the P50 Pocket folds horizontally and spreads into a full-sized smartphone, just like the Samsung Z Flip series.

It is deemed to be equally stylish as well, as seen in the voguish photos Harper Bazaar China shared on Weibo two days after Huawei’s announcement.

One notable feature is its cover that comes in two colors—silver and gold—and features an ultra-glossy finish embossed with a ripple pattern.

The distinct design is made more premium with the device’s two 1-inch camera modules at the back, which are fashioned from the camera bump of the Huawei P50. The difference is that the clamshell’s lower ring appears to work as a small secondary screen and camera viewfinder.

Key specifications were meanwhile revealed in fresh reports by MyDrivers and Gizmochina. The reports stated that the device will sport a Sony IMX766 50-megapixel primary camera coupled with a 13-megapixel ultrawide lens and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom.

It has a 6.8-inch screen for its inner display and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The P50 Pocket is powered by a Kirin 9000 chipset, which lacks support for 5G connectivity, and a 4,100mAh battery with support for 66W fast charging.

The Huawei P50 Pocket is expected to go on sale with a cheaper price tag than the Galaxy Z Flip3, which is retailing with a starting price of P52,990.

It is scheduled to launch in Huawei’s December 23 event along with the new Watch D smartwatch, notebooks, smart glasses, among others.
