(Update, January 28: Check out our Huawei P50 Pro camera test and Huawei P50 Pocket review!)
The Huawei P50 Pro and Huawei P50 Pocket are scheduled to launch February 4 in the country. An announcement from Globe Telecom reveals that preorders start on that day as well. We haven’t come across any teasers for the two from Smart Communications, so we’re not sure if the latter will likewise carry them.
The Huawei P50 Pro and Huawei P50 Pocket are both high-end and camera-focused, with the Pro unit still ranked as the No. 1 camera phone on Dxomark.
The former boasts a true-form dual-matrix camera that comprises the main one and what the brand calls the SuperZoom camera matrix. You get a setup that combines 50-megapixel primary, 40-megapixel monochrome, 64-megapixel zoom, and 13-megapixel ultra-wide shooters.
The system on the foldable phone, on the other hand, includes a 40-megapixel True-Chroma camera, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 32-megapixel Ultra Spectrum shooter, a 10-channel multi-spectrum sensor, an Ultra Spectrum illuminator, and auto-focus laser.
There are different versions of the devices, but based on the listings on Huawei Philippines’ website, the P50 Pro that will be released here comes in Cocoa Gold and Golden Black hues, has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G chip. And the P50 Pocket that will become available locally has two color variants — Premium Gold and White — features up to 12GB RAM and a maximum of 512GB storage, and uses the same processor as the Pro model.
In China, the Huawei P50 Pro and Huawei P50 Pocket are priced from ¥5,988 (roughly P48,501 or $946 converted) and ¥8,988 (P72,800 and $1,420), respectively.
