Huawei today unveiled a new version of its folding smartphone in China. Called Pocket S, this new model is none other than a P50 Pocket with a revised technical sheet. Far from being a top-of-the-range smartphone, it comes under the €900 mark after a quick conversion. Enough to make it the cheapest folding smartphone in the clamshell format on the market.

The Pocket S uses the 6.9-inch Amoled panel of the Huawei P50 Pocket with its 120 Hz refresh rate, its definition of 2790 x 1188 pixels or its elongated ratio of 21:9. Inside, Huawei integrates a Snapdragon 778G chip in a 4G version only, since Huawei still does not have access to modems offering 5G. A less high-end SoC than the Snapdragon 888 present in the P50 Pocket, but which should still offer very good performance. A 4000 mAh battery is included, with fast charging at 40 W as well as wireless charging limited to 5 W.

On the photo side, the new folding one loses the 32-megapixel Ultra Spectrum sensor, but still keeps a 40-megapixel main module coupled with a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle. The 10.7 megapixel punch housed inside the smartphone is inherited from the P50 Pocket. The exterior is virtually unchanged with a 1.04-inch (340 x 340 pixel) OLED display. The set is generally less bling-bling than the manufacturer’s more upscale model, with pastel colors.

The Huawei Pocket S, which is not scheduled for release outside China, costs from €830 and is displayed at a maximum of just over €1,000. Rates obviously calculated after a conversion at the current exchange rate and excluding taxes.
