Huawei’s no stranger to foldable phones, having launched various iterations of the Mate X series over the past three years. Unlike the Mate X series with its bookstyle design, the P50 Pocket is a clamshell foldable available in a standard or premium variant, the latter being the one currently on sale in South Africa. Sporting a metallic-gold chassis designed by haute couture designer Iris van Herpen, the P50 Pocket Premium Edition has the same futuristic lines as her collections.
Steve Jobs once said: “The design is not just what it looks like and feels like. The design is how it works.” Huawei’s clamshell foldable boasts striking, high-end design and some impressive specs. These include a larger battery (with faster fast charging) than the Z Flip 3 5G, a less noticeable crease on the display, and a better camera array.
