The Huawei P50 Pocket is the first clamshell form factor from the Chinese manufacturer, although not its first attempt at a foldable. It previously released three folding tablets under the Mate X umbrella.

The P50 Pocket, as its name suggests, is a more pocket friendly folding phone that is easy to carry around, making it appealing when compared to how large other smartphones have become.

The Mail & Guardian was provided with the P50 Pocket Premium Edition to review, a version that was made in collaboration with designer Iris van Herpen. It features a unique embossed pattern on the exterior, in a shiny gold tone, not immune to fingerprints. You’re either going to love it or hate it.

The P50 Pocket weighs 190g and its dimensions are 170 x 75.5 x 7.2mm, but once folded, it becomes 87.3 x 15.2mm.

It had a 6.9-inch 120Hz foldable OLED display with a multidimensional hinge that leaves a less obvious crease on it when compared to its closest rival, the Samsung Z Flip 3. Unfortunately, the P50 Pocket cannot stay open at any angle as the Flip 3 can.
