Huawei's P50 Pocket to be available worldwide - But where will it sell?

by Ken Hyers | 1月 26, 2022

Huawei's striking P50 Pocket foldable will be available for sale worldwide shortly.  The clamshell foldable is a fashion-forward clamshell folding display 4G smartphone that was introduced just a few weeks ago in China. 

Already available for pre-order in Bulgaria, it will also be offered in other parts of Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and in the Asia Pacific.

The major drawback to the P50 Pocket (besides no 5G) is that it is powered by Huawei's Harmony OS rather than Google's Android and lacks Google Mobile Services.  For most users the inability to access Google's Android app store or access Google Maps and other services will be a deal-breaker.  Nonetheless, Huawei continues to sell its smartphones in some markets outside China, particularly in parts of Eastern Europe.  We expect Russia will be the biggest overseas market for the P50 Pocket.

The foldables market is getting bigger. Clients of our Device Technologies (EDT) service can learn more about it here.
