Last night saw Chinese giant HUAWEI introduce the long awaited P50 Series in the country, in what was by far their biggest event post-Covid, which saw thousands descend upon the Times Square Arena in Menlyn to witness this spectacular launch. The HUAWEI P series has always been well received by South Africans, its the flagship device that always brought leading technology in photography that saw the competition follow suit. The P50 Series is no different boasting an impressive camera, superb battery life as well as charging capabilities and a sleek design that makes this more than just a phone but a work of art. The two devices that make up the P50 Series range are the P50 Pro and the P50 Pocket, both premium devices that offer the best in tech and versatility to the users.
Both devices run on HUAWEI's EMUI 12 which offers a straightforward, smooth, safe and reliable user experience for working, studying, gaming, entertainment and video editing. It also enables the seamless control of multiple devices through it's Super Device feature which integrates your various HUAWEI devices into one eco-system.
Looking at the P50 Pro, key to the phones architecture is its camera which is a new dual matrix system which comprises of a powerful main camera matrix and superzoom matrix that provide lifelike imagery with extreme clarity and high dynamic range. Main camera system has a 40MP True-Choma Camera 13MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera, 50MP True-Chroma Camera, with the Telephoto system having a 64MP Camera and a 200x hybrid zoom lens. The camera system provides clarity like never before on camera phones with crystal clear imagery with incredible details. The P50 Pro also comes with a 4360mAh battery that supports 66W SuperCharge and coming in with the fastest Wireless charging at 50W! The P50 Pro is available in two colours, Cocoa Gold and Golden Black, both beautiful colours that exudes the luxury that this phone is all about.
The P50 Pocket is a dream for the fashionista's, it's design is something to be admired being the flattest folding device on the market. This is achieved by an all-new multi-dimensional hinge that enables the HUAWEI P50 Pocket Premium Edition to fold seamlessly in half while still being ultra slim and light weight. When unfolded, the 6.9" immersive fully flat screen welcomes you, one that has a high refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 300Hz. The camera system on the P50 Pocket features a 40MP True-Chroma camera, a 13MP ultra-wide angle camera and a 32MP Ultra-spectrum camera. The device features a 10-channel multi-spectrum sensor and ultra-spectrum illuminator that ensures great quality pictures that eliminates glare and other distortions from your pictures. The great thing about the pocket is that you can take selfies from the main camera when the device is folded, this is true the secondary circle which is a display that is used to display notifications, schedules, calendar, music, weather and like I said earlier, the camera.
Both devices are a great addition to the HUAWEI family local, a great way to re-introduce the much loved P Series.
Pricing for the devices are as follows:
P50 Pro - R19,999
P50 Pocket - R28,999
