Huawei P50 Pocket Foldable Flip Phone Coming to Malaysia 12 January
January 3, 2022 Andrew Cheng

Announced just a couple of weeks ago, we just got word that the Huawei P50 Pocket – the Chinese company’s first-ever foldable flip phone – is launching here in Malaysia as early as next week. Meant to go against the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, the P50 Pocket has a more unique circular cover screen, though it also has a higher asking price.

For the Chinese market, the P50 Pocket retails from 8,988 Chinese yuan for the 256GB variant with 8GB of RAM; that comes up to about RM5,900. The Premium Edition (512GB + 12GB) with a unique textured design, on the other hand, costs 10,988 yuan (around RM7,215).

For the sake of comparison, the Z Flip 3 starts at only RM3,999 for the Malaysian market, or as low as RM2,999 when it’s on sale.

Of course, the P50 Pocket does have a number of advantages over the Z Flip 3. When the device is folded, for example, there’s barely any gap, thanks to the “multi-dimensional” hinge design. According to Huawei, the display won’t have any noticeable crease either when it is unfolded.

Other specifications of the P50 Pocket include a 6.9-inch Full HD+ OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a 1.04-inch 340 x 340 circular OLED cover screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G chipset, a triple camera system (40MP primary + 13MP ultra-wide angle + 32MP “ultra spectrum”), a 10.7MP selfie camera, and a 4,000mAh battery.
