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.

One of the phone’s more unique features is the Ultra Spectrum Camera, which allows fluorescent photography (you can use it to see if your sunscreen has been applied correctly). The P50 Pocket Premium Edition comes in gold and ships with a charging cable, 40W charging brick, wired earphones, and a protective case.
