What are the key specs of the Huawei Pocket 2?

The market for foldable smartphones has expanded with the entry of Huawei, a Chinese business. The Huawei Pocket 2, the company's second iteration of its clamshell foldable smartphone, is now available, around two years after the P50 Pocket made its debut.

The 6.94-inch foldable OLED inner screen of the Huawei Pocket 2 has an LTPO adaptive refresh rate capability of 1-120 Hz. The screen's maximum brightness is 2200 nits.

You could be curious about the hinge, just as with any foldable. The Huawei Pocket 2 has a waterdrop hinge, which allows for a gap-free, smooth fold. The phone can fold entirely flat thanks to its hinge design, which also reduces the amount of the screen wrinkle that is visible. Huawei states that the screen maintains its smoothness and flatness even after extended use.

A tiny 1.15-inch circular display with a dual-circle symmetric pattern is located adjacent to the camera island on the cover screen. Four hues are offered for the device: Elegant Black, Rococo White, Taro Purple, and Tahitian Grey.

Examining the camera mechanism of the Huawei Pocket 2

The Huawei Pocket 2 is unique in that it is the first flip phone with four cameras on the outside. The 50 MP main camera on the rear of the Pocket 2 has an f/1.6 aperture and optical image stabilization (OIS). The telephoto camera has an 8 MP sensor, an f/2.4 aperture, and optical image stabilization (OIS), while the ultra-wide-angle camera has a 12 MP sensor and an f/2.2 aperture. The gadget also has a special 2 MP hyperspectral camera.

It's still uncommon to find a smartphone with a hyperspectral camera. This camera's concept is to record light in a great number of additional spectral bands, giving it extensive information in addition to color. Imagine being able to view an object via hundreds of different "lights" rather of just three. The "hyperspectral camera spans the spectrum and captures the beauty of invisible light," according to Huawei.

Numerous camera functions, including as super night view, super macro, fluorescent photography, and more, are included with the Huawei Pocket 2.

Running HarmonyOS 4, the Huawei Pocket 2 has a user-friendly interface that makes customizing the cover screen simple. A user's avatar can be displayed, a clock can be shown, a mood wallpaper can be set, or a GIF with an animated pet can be used.

Support for two-way satellite messaging via Beidou, the Chinese satellite navigation system, is one of the Huawei Pocket 2's standout features. Users may remain connected even in places without cellular service thanks to this functionality.

The Huawei Pocket 2's capability to assess UV intensity is another intriguing feature. When they walk outside, users may assess the UV strength thanks to this function. The outdoor screen gives users information to improve their protection when they walk outside by showing the strength of UV radiation in the surrounding area.

The Huawei Pocket 2 features a hand-sliding up/down function that makes controlling films and social media easier while viewing them from a distance. A touchless control option is now included for an improved user experience.

Examining the battery life and performance of the Huawei Pocket

Although Huawei no longer releases information on its chipsets, it is thought that the Huawei Pocket 2—like the Huawei Mate 60 Pro—is powered by the Kirin 9000S. It has 12 GB of RAM and choices for 256 GB, 512 GB, or 1 TB of storage when it comes to RAM and storage.

With its large 4520mAh battery, the clamshell foldable supports 40W wireless charging for the first time. The 66W rating applies to wired charging. In contrast, the 3,700mAh battery of Samsung's most recent clamshell foldable, the Galaxy Z Flip 5, only supports 10W wireless charging.

Because a phone this small warms up so fast, Huawei has included a Vapor Chamber (VC) that is positioned conveniently in the upper half of the device. Moreover, several graphite layers are present to improve heat conductivity.

Information about the Huawei Pocket 2's cost and availability

Huawei has some challenging pricing and availability issues. The starting pricing of the Pocket 2 is CNY 7,499, or around $1,040 for the 256GB model. The Huawei Pocket 2 is priced similarly to its primary rivals, the Oppo Find N3 Flip and the Galaxy Z Flip 5.

The Huawei Pocket 2 may have difficulties competing with other foldable devices because of its restricted worldwide availability, even with features like satellite internet, an amazing camera system (at least on paper), and a sizable battery. It is currently only available in China, but in the upcoming months, it may become available in other nations or areas as well, so check back for updates.
