The P50 Pocket features a folding clamshell design with Huawei’s Multi-Dimensional Hinge with no visible gap when closed. The external screen is a 1-inch Cover Screen that lets you interact with notifications, controls, and the cameras. Speaking of which, the triple camera setup on the P50 Pocket consists of a 40MP main camera, a 13MP ultrawide, and a 32MP Ultra Spectrum camera for boosting color rendering.

Yesterday pre-orders of both devices went live in Bulgaria, where they come with a free pair of Huawei FreeBuds 4. We expect many of the other markets to offer similar pre-order bundles.
