Huawei will soon present its first flip-format folding smartphone. The Huawei P50 pocket device was first teased but can now be seen in a Chinese fashion magazine, which also features a round external display.
In cooperation with Harper’s Bazaar, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has shown the P50 Pocket in full for the first-ever time. The official presentation is expected to take place on December 23rd. The smartphone can be folded vertically and is clearly designed to appeal to fashion-conscious clients.
These photos were taken by Harper’s Bazaar China’s Weibo and show the Huawei P50 Pocket folded and slightly opened. These photos confirm the metal frame as well as the striking patterns on the covers. As is often the case, the fingerprint reader has been integrated into a housing on the side.

You can also see the USB Type-C port, the speaker grilles, and the camera module, which appears to have three sensors, with its circular frame. Huawei placed a second display on the P50 Pocket’s outside, directly below the camera module. This is a first-of-its-kind detail that stands out from the other devices.
This screen can display notifications and time. However, it can also show self-portraits to help you create better photos or videos. Huawei does not disclose any information about the P50 Pocket’s displays, but Ross Young, an analyst, provides details from the supply chain.
He stated that the Huawei P50 Pocket’s main display is 6.85 inches, which is slightly larger than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3, with its 6.7 inch foldable OLED panel. He stated that the OLED panel used to attach the round display to the outside is non-flexible and has a one-inch diameter. Huawei attempts to offset the extra costs associated with a round design using a panel that is made on a glass substrate.
