The Huawein P50 Pocket has already been released in China and today it will be launched in France. This is a foldable smartphone that uses the clamshell format of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3. So we have a smartphone whose screen closes to itself like a pocket mirror.
Although the terminal runs on its home country with Harmony OS, Huawei has decided to equip it with Android 11 for this European version. An interesting choice to keep buyers accustomed to Google’s operating system confused.

The P50 Pocket is therefore in the middle a foldable smartphone. Here, the main screen closes automatically due to the vertical fold. A format that has already proven its worth and works.
Its outer shell has two black circles. If one is a photo module, the other is a small round 1-inch screen with a resolution of 340 x 340 pixels. It can be used for notifications, but also for various applications such as taking selfies. Inside we have foldable 6.9-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2790 x 1188 pixels. On the processor side, you need to rely on the Snapdragon 888. On the other hand, the smartphone is only 4G. There are two versions: one with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of memory, and a “premium” version with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of memory.
The battery is 4000 mAh and compatible with a 40 watt fast charge. On the photo side, we have three sensors: 40 megapixel main unit13 megapixel ultra-wide angle and 32 megapixel “ultra spectral” cell.
As for the operating system, Huawei will be phasing out Harmony OS for Android 11 in this version (its EMUI 12 overlay). However, we still don’t have a Google software package. That’s why you have to give up Google Maps, the Play Store, or even Gmail.
The P50 Pocket will be available in France 1er for next March 1299 euros. Its premium version is available today for the price 1599 euros.
