(ANSA) – MILAN, DECEMBER 17 – Despite the difficulties in finding technological components from US suppliers, due to the ban imposed by former President Trump and still in force, Huawei does not stop and tries to relaunch with a new smartphone.
The images of the P50 Pocket, the first folding clamshell smartphone of the Shenzen giant, have emerged online on the Chinese social network Weibo. According to the most recent report by the agency that studies the mobile market, Strategy Analytics, sales of devices with HarmonyOS on board, the operating system developed internally by Huawei after the abandonment of Android (although the underlying code is the same) will grow 200% by the end of 2022. The P50 Pocket, as confirmed by the company, will be launched on December 23 in China, and will be aimed, at least for the moment, at the domestic market only.
Its peculiarity is to realize what already Motorola Razr and the two iterations of the Galaxy Flip from Samsung promised: a compact size when closed and a screen with a traditional width when open. At the sight of the promotional images, however, Huawei’s goal seems to be aimed specifically at the female audience. The P50 Pocket indeed sees a golden chassis and an elegant interweaving pattern. The same photos come from Harper’s Bazaar China magazine, a Chinese version of the US fashion monthly founded in 1867 by Fletcher Harper. On a purely technical level, there are doubts about the presence of a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a US supplier for which the embargo against Huawei still applies. The latter already produces chips in its factories, called Kirin, involved like the others in the silicon shortage and consequent production difficulties globally. (HANDLE).
