Aside from the P50 Pocket foldable phone, Huawei Malaysia also launched the Huawei P50 Pro on our shores. Introduced in China back in July last year, the flagship phone sports a quad camera system that can do 100x zoom.
Only one variant of the P50 Pro is available in Malaysia. Featuring 256GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM, this flagship phone retails at RM4,199. It is also offered in two colours: Cocoa Gold and Golden Black.
For the Malaysian market, the P50 Pro is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G chipset. That’s right, as its name suggests, it does not support 5G networks. Of course, for markets where 5G connectivity is not widespread yet – such as Malaysia – this is not a big deal, though it’s definitely an omission worth pointing out.
The quad camera system of the P50 Pro is one of its main selling points. It’s made up of a 50MP primary shooter, a 40MP monochrome sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide angle lens, and of course, a 64MP telephoto camera that can do up to 100x digital zoom.
Other specifications of the P50 Pro include a 6.6-inch Full HD+ OLED dual curved screen with a fast 120Hz refresh rate, a 13MP selfie camera, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, a 4,360mAh battery, an IP68 rating, and HarmonyOS 2 (still based on Android) out of the box.
The Huawei P50 Pro is now available for pre-order in Malaysia until 21 January 2022 for RM4,199; it will hit store shelves the very next day on 22 January. Those who place a pre-order for the flagship phone will also get a Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro (worth RM1,199) for free.
