Bringing fashion into the fold with Huawei’s latest flagship foldable smartphone

Breakthrough in smartphone haute couture design

Huawei joined forces with prominent haute couture designer, Iris van Herpen, in a cross-industry collaboration to create the HUAWEI P50 Pocket Premium Edition. Guided by the principle of “symbiosis”, the device captures the shadows and textures of the earth, brought to life through an advanced 3D micro-sculpture design.

Style and substance

The incredibly tactile and intricate design brings together the worlds of art and technology to create a stunning one-of-a-kind foldable smartphone. Thanks to the inclusion of the industry’s only new-generation HUAWEI Multi-Dimensional Hinge and exclusive Multi-Dimensional Lifting design, the HUAWEI P50 Pocket is able to fold seamlessly, and unfold to produce a smooth screen. The use of innovative materials such as Zirconium-based liquid metal and 2,100MPa Ultra-high Strength Steel improve the reliability and durability of the folding mechanism.

The HUAWEI P50 Pocket folds seamlessly into an ultra-slim, lightweight body that is comfortable to hold and fits easily in a purse. Unfolded, it offers a generous 6.9-inch, 21:9 display, which delivers an extraordinary experience when watching videos or movies. It also has a pixel density of 442ppi, and supports 1.07 billion colours and the P3 wide colour gamut – providing incredible colour authenticity and pristine picture quality.

Innovative and intuitive features

The HUAWEI P50 Pocket introduces an all-new Sunscreen detection function. Accessible via the Mirror app, this handy feature visualises the spread of sunscreen on the skin to help users check for uncovered spots and avoid getting sunburnt.

The smartphone’s Cover Screen supports the display of notifications, schedule, calendar, music, weather, and control of other features. A range of vibrant themes are available, so users can customise their Cover Screen interaction experience.

It also supports maximum privacy when the device is folded, automatically disabling its cameras, microphone and location, and re-enables them upon unfolding.
