Photo Announcement. Huawei Pocket S - a simplified, but still expensive clamshell with a flexible screen

Huawei today announced the Huawei Pocket S foldable smartphone in China.

Pocket S is a simplified version of last year's Huawei P50 Pocket. Weaker iron, there is no "ultraspectral" (UV-sensitive) camera. Everything else is identical. Screens, batteries. Apparently, the body remained exactly the same as it was. Dimensions and weight are the same tyutelka to tyutelka.

Two screens. Both are OLED. The large and flexible one is 6.9" (111 cm²) diagonal and has a resolution of 1188x2790 (439 ppi). The refresh rate is up to 120 Hz.It's important. count, the screen is very much elongated. The aspect ratio is already 21:9.

A small external screen is located under the island of cameras. He is round. The diagonal is small, only 1.04", resolution 340x340 (328 ppi).

Iron. Instead of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, they put a somewhat more modest Snapdragon 778G. In AnTuTu, we expect about half a million points. (Support for 5G networks is still bitten off, no one has lifted the sanctions).

Memory. 8 GB operational, from 128 to 512 GB permanent. There is support for memory cards, but not traditional Micro-SD, but their own NM-Card.

The battery has a capacity�Power 4000 mAh. By the standards of clamshells with a flexible screen, this is a lot. Charging is fast, 40W.

Cameras. Frontal with a resolution of 10.7 MP. Rear duet 40 + 13 MP. Main camera and wide angle. There is no optical stabilization. The smartphone does not pretend to be considered a harsh camera.

What else. There is an NFC module. The fingerprint scanner on the side is combined with the power button. There is a barometer.

LTE. There is support not only for "Chinese", but also for all major "international" bands, including the seventh and twentieth.

About prices.

Cost Huawei Pocket S will be ¥5988 (₽50300, $819), ¥6488 (₽54500, $888) and ¥7488 (₽62900, $1020) for versions 8+128, 8+256 and 8+512GB respectively.

For comparison, Huawei P50 Pocket 8+256 GB is now ¥8188 (₽68800, $1120) in China.

(Hmm. What's interesting, right now I see P50 Pocket in MVideo and Eldorado for ₽53000 ($863) - one, two I wonder what's the catch?)
