Huawei announces P50 Pro and P50 Pocket in South Africa

After weeks of news, rumors and leaks, the Huawei P50 Pro and P50 Pocket Premium Edition have finally been officially announced for South Africa. Huawei has launched its brand new flagship series smartphones locally, as well as the first horizontally foldable smartphone.

As has been the case year after year, one of the key aspects of the P50 range is its True-Form Dual-Matrix camera. Thanks to its ongoing partnership with Leica, it delivers lifelike images with extreme clarity. Moreover, it also includes the XD Fusion Pro. It is an improved imaging solution, incorporating a new color filter system, a True-Chroma picture engine, as well as super HDR technology. All this to enhance the details of each captured image.

Other camera features include 100x zoom. This can be extended to 200x zoom when paired with the wide angle and periscope lens.

Thanks to the 3D True-Chroma screen of the Huawei P50 series, the visualization of captured images is also excellent. The distribution for each screen is as follows:

  • Huawei P50: 6.5″, 3D True-Chroma OLED panel, curved glass, 1B colors, 90Hz
  • Huawei P50 Pro: 6.6″, 3D True-Chroma OLED panel, curved glass, 1B colors, 120Hz
  • Huawei P50 Pocket: 6.9″ foldable, 3D True-Chroma OLED panel, 1B colors, 120Hz

Despite those larger-than-life screens, the units are between 7.2mm and 8.5mm thick. Each unit also contains a Li-Po battery of 4000 mAh or more. With its AI software, battery life is extended beyond this standard expectation. It also includes fast charging capabilities, supporting 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge and 50W Wireless HUAWEI SuperCharge.

The real star of the release is the new Huawei P50 Pocket Premium Edition. With its all-new hinge system, the screen unfolds elegantly, while maintaining its ultra-thin design and lightweight body.

The Huawei P50 Pocket Premium Edition features a beautifully designed display, which includes the True-Chroma image engine and Huawei XD optics.

Thanks to its clever design, the Pocket has a nifty selfie camera, which uses newly developed selfie algorithms and its large camera sensor to enhance low-light images. This allows it to take top quality photos in any environment.
