Foldable phones are getting more impressive as time passes. Now Huawei has launched one such powerful clamshell phone — Pocket 2 with stacked hardware across the board. In this article, we will discuss the Huawei Pocket 2 in greater detail including its expected price in Nepal.

Huawei Pocket 2 Overview

Design and Displays

As mentioned earlier, the Huawei Pocket 2 is a clamshell foldable phone with IPX8 water resistance. This phone comes in four regular colour options: Tahitian grey, Rococo white, Taro purple, and Elegant black. The first two variants flaunt a pearl-inspired design with a glass back while the latter two come in a leather finish. Additionally, this foldable also has an Art Custom Edition named the “Blue Dream”. This version of the phone has Kunlun Glass 2 protection on the back. It also has lines drawn all across its back that appear to shift depending on the angle.

The primary screen on this phone measures 6.94 inches diagonally and boasts an FHD+ resolution spanning 2,690 x 1,136 pixels. This screen supports an adaptive refresh rate of 1–120 Hz, a touch sampling rate of 300 Hz, and a high-frequency PWM dimming of 1,440 Hz. Moreover, it is supported by a Xuanwu water drop hinge offering a gapless fold and a flat unfold.

Meanwhile, the external screen on the Huawei Pocket 2 measures 1.15 inches in diameter and sits below the camera module. This screen offers an adaptive refresh rate of 1–60 Hz and a touch sampling rate of 120 Hz. The resolution here spans 340 x 340 pixels and comes with added functionality like displaying QR codes for smart payments. Finally, both these screens are OLED panels with a colour depth of 1.07 billion and P3 wide colour gamut support.


The chipset powering the Huawei Pocket 2 is a mystery since the company has not listed it in its listing. While that may be true, sources are assuming the silicone to be the Kirin 9000S. It is Huawei’s in-house flagship chipset, however, it doesn’t hold much water against other processors in the market. There is a whole lot of fiasco that goes on with Huawei, its phones, chips, and all. Meanwhile, you can learn more about the Kirin 9000S in our dedicated article. While that’s there, it is an octa-core processor built on 7nm lithography and peaking at 2.62 GHz clock speed.

Other than that, it comes in two memory options 12GB for the regular ones and 16GB for Art Custom Edition. On the other hand, the Huawei Pocket 2 offers storage choices of 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB. It also allows you to add up to 512GB of external storage via the company’s proprietary NM card.

This phone for the first time comes with a mid-frame vapour chamber and a three-dimensional heat dissipation structure. Coupled with the 1,800 W/m·K high thermal conductivity graphene material this phone offers more stable and cooler performance. Lastly, on the software side of things, it runs of the HarmonyOS 4.0.

Camera and the rest

The Huawei Pocket 2 is a one-of-a-kind flip phone in terms of camera, as it packs four shooters on the back. The camera department is led by a 50-megapixel unit with OIS capability. Additionally, the second camera in this setup is a 12MP ultrawide lens. Thirdly, we get an 8MP telephoto camera offering 3X portrait shots along with optical image stabilisation.

Lastly, this phone also flaunts a 2-megapixel hyperspectral camera with ultraviolet intensity and sunspot detection capability. With this, you can perform fluorescent photography as well as use it to take a UV Sunscreen Test. In the meantime, the front camera is a 10.7MP ultrawide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture.

In the tank, you have a 4,520 mAh silicon negative battery. This battery is probably similar to the 2nd Gen Silicon-Carbon Battery from Honor. The Huawei Pocket 2 supports 66W wired as well as 40W wireless fast and 7.5W reverse charging.

In terms of wireless connectivity, you get dual-band WiFi along with Bluetooth v5.2 with high-res audio codec support. Additionally, this phone is also capable of two-way Beidou satellite messaging where you can send messages via the Changlian app even when there is no terrestrial network. Lastly, the wired connection is handled by a sole USB 2.0 Type-C port.
