Aside from the P50 Pocket foldable phone, Huawei Malaysia is also launching the Huawei P50 Pro locally next week. Introduced in China back in July last year, the flagship phone sports a quad camera system that can do 100x zoom.
The quad camera system of the P50 Pro really 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.
For the Malaysian market, it’s likely that the P50 Pro will be 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.
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.
In China, the Huawei P50 Pro with 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM – which seems to be the only variant available in Malaysia, based on the local product page – retails at 6,488 Chinese yuan (about RM4,260). It’ll be interesting to see if it will be priced similarly in Malaysia once it is officially launched here next week on 12 January.
