Huawei recently took the stage in China to announce the Pocket S, a new flip-able phone. It’s a less expensive alternative to the P50 Pocket, which was announced almost a year ago. Here, we will go through the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Huawei Pocket S in Nepal.
Huawei Pocket S Overview:
The Pocket S has a design reminiscent of the P50 Pocket. That is, it has a 1.04-inch circular cover display and a 6.9-inch main screen with a 2790 x 1188 pixels resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.
While both are AMOLED screens, the inner screen also has a 10-bit color depth, 1440 Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, and a DCI-P3 color gamut.
Moreover, the phone employs a water-drop hinge for gapless folding. The hinge is made of MIM steel and can withstand 400,000 folds, making it the first smartphone to get Swiss SGS folding screen mobile phone durability certification.
The Pocket S is available in Black, Frost Silver, Mint Green, Pink, Primrose Gold, and Crystal Blue color. The glass back on Frost Silver is prone to fingerprints. Whereas other color variants form a transparent ceramic texture on the back when illuminated differently.
