HUAWEI P50 Pro
True-Form Dual-Matrix Camera
The HUAWEI P50 Pro True-Form Dual-Matrix Camera has the powerful Main Camera Matrix and SuperZoom Matrix. The hardware is designed in such a way that the HUAWEI XD Optics and HUAWEI XD Fusion Pro image engine come together to create high-resolution images that are brighter, shot with more light taken in, and cleaner with more details. The camera system has a new super colour filter system with True-Chroma Image Engine and Super HDR technology that provide a comprehensive enhancement to details, colours and dynamic range. The True-Form Dual-Matrix Camera can shoot videos in 4K resolution from the front and rear cameras. In addition, if you want to shoot far away objects, you can use the periscope zoom lens that supports a maximum zoom range of up to 200 times.
Dual-Matrix Camera Design
HUAWEI P50 Pro’s design is unlike anything else on the market. The Dual-Matrix camera design combines form and function. The double ring set-up on the back of the smartphone is visually striking and instantly recognisable. The HUAWEI P50 Pro uses a 3D curved screen with a single punch hole camera making it easier to use. The screen has an HDR display that supports the full P3 colour gamut & delivers a stunning visual experience for both video entertainment and gaming. The smartphone sports a huge 6.6-inch 120Hz True-Chroma Display with a 300Hz touch-sampling rate making it ideal for gaming. And for those who love the outdoors, the smartphone has an IP68 rating protecting it from the elements when out and about.
Large Battery with Wired & Wireless HUAWEI SuperCharge Support
For a premium battery experience, the HUAWEI P50 Pro strikes the perfect balance of battery life and fast charging speed. Under the hood, the smartphone has a 4360mAh battery & it also supports 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge and 50W Wireless HUAWEI SuperCharge.
Visionary and Inspirational User Experience thanks to the Super Device features
The HUAWEI P50 Pro runs on EMUI 12, offering a straightforward, smooth & safe user experience for productivity and leisure activities. Thanks to the Super Device features, Huawei has consolidated different tools into the Control Panel (Device+) menu with a simple swipe; you can explore the Control Panel and get quick access to audio playback, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings. With the Distributed File System, the HUAWEI P50 Pro can also function as a wireless external storage unit for the PC, meaning you can access the files on your smartphone easily. Using the HUAWEI P50 Pro, you can also transfer MeeTime calls onto HUAWEI Vision smart TV and conduct the call by taking advantage of the larger display, camera and speakers. You may also conveniently share their screen during a video and even mark key places to bring essential insights directly into view.
HUAWEI P50 Pocket
Tapping into the nostalgia of flip-phones from back in the day, the HUAWEI P50 Pocket folds seamlessly into an ultra-slim, lightweight body that is an experience in itself. When unfolded, the smartphone offers a fully flat 6.9-inch screen, 21:9 display, which delivers an extraordinary experience when watching videos or movies.
With meticulous designing and years of R&D, the new-generation Multi-Dimensional Hinge is a total upgrade, featuring an even shorter radius. Combined with the exclusive Multi-Dimensional Lifting design, the hinge allows the device to be even slimmer and produce a smoother screen when unfolded. The HUAWEI P50 Pocket comes in two colours: White and Premium Gold.
A New Breakthrough for HUAWEI IMAGE™
The HUAWEI P50 Pocket fully supports cutting-edge technology, including the True-Chroma Image Engine, HUAWEI XD Optics and more. What’s interesting is that the smartphone also comes with an improved and reimagined version of the HUAWEI XD Fusion Pro. With that as the foundation, Huawei created the Ultra Spectrum Image Technology setting a new bar for the industry.
HUAWEI XD Optics offers a novel approach to addressing image quality improvement. The main camera module of the HUAWEI P50 Pocket has a 40MP True-Chroma Camera and an Ultra Spectrum Camera. This is powered by an image engine to produce images with vastly improved light intake and clarity.
The HUAWEI P50 Pocket has rear camera portrait selfie algorithms and uses the big camera sensor to boost low light performance. This allows the foldable to take full advantage of its form and empower you to take superior selfies.
Adding to the camera features of the HUAWEI P50 Pocket is the Ultra Spectrum Camera. This enables an all-new camera feature: Ultra Spectrum Fluorescence Photography. This feature interprets aesthetics in an all-new way, creating something that can only be described as a fusion of art and physics.
Lastly, courtesy of the Mirror app, you can use the Sunscreen detection feature to check whether you have applied sunscreen evenly. If you wish to check for the spread of the cream on other areas, you can simply double-tap the screen to enable Pro (MONO) mode for that.
Smart Cover Screen Innovative interactions
The HUAWEI P50 Pocket has a Cover Screen that supports the display of almost anything you want, be it notifications, schedule, calendar, music, weather. In fact, you can control other features as well. A variety of vibrant themes are available so that you can customise their Cover Screen interaction experience. Content and services seamlessly flow between both screens. You can even access the camera from the Cover Screen, making way for some epic selfies!
Visionary and Inspirational User Experience
The HUAWEI P50 Pocket also runs on EMUI 12 that promises to offer a straightforward, smooth & safe user experience. Thanks to the Super Device features, Huawei P50 Pocket boasts the same cool Super device features listed for HUAWEI P50 Pro.
A Large Battery with HUAWEI SuperCharge
Under the hood of the HUAWEI P50 Pocket is a 4,000 mAh battery which supports 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge for an effortless, high-speed boost to your battery.
While the features are endless once you start using the smartphone, one thing is for sure: both the devices are set to revolutionize the flagship phones segment this year. No wonder we have them listed as some of our favourite phones for 2022!
