Huawei, the controversial Chinese technology giant that is still sanctioned by the US, has announced that its flagship P50 Pro and foldable P50 Pocket will be available for purchase outside of China. Thus according to Huawei’s news release, the two phones will be available in “major markets spanning the Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, Europe, and Latin America,” though the firm did not say when or where.
Because of the country’s restrictions, Huawei’s smartphones are difficult to advertise in the United States because the P50 Pro and P50 Pocket do not come preinstalled with Google programs and services like as Gmail, Chrome, Maps, or the Play Store. Despite the fact that Huawei’s HarmonyOS is built on a version of Android that is open source.
Because of the current restrictions, the Huawei P50 Pro and P50 Pocket are unable to get 5G components, forcing the Huawei P series to rely on 4G components. Given that the P50 Pro and P50 Pocket will almost certainly be more costly than flagship Apple, Samsung, and Google smartphones in many areas, these are substantial considerations that may make the P50 Pro and P50 Pocket difficult to market. The forthcoming Galaxy S smartphones are also on the horizon.

The P50 Pocket has a clamshell folding style similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip smartphones. When unfurled, users get access to the 6.9-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2700 x 1228 and a refresh rate of 120Hz, as well as support for 1.07 billion colors and a P3 wide color gamut.
