Huawei P50 Pro
The Huawei P50 Pro has a 6.6-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate. Under the hood, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G chipset coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.
Additionally, it is equipped with a 4360mAh battery with support for 66W wired Huawei SuperCharge and 50W wireless Huawei SuperCharge.
As part of the P-series, it continues the legacy of the series as an excellent choice for smartphone photographers. Around the back, it is comprised of a 50MP True-Chroma Camera for color, a 40MP True-Chroma Camera for monochrome, a 13MP Ultra-wide angle lens, and a 64MP telephoto sensor. Meanwhile, upfront, it has a 13MP camera.
The lenses coupled with the Huawei XD Optics and Huawei XD Fusion Pro Engine is said to deliver True to Life imagery with greater clarity and high-dynamic range.
Huawei P50 Pocket
The Huawei P50 Pocket, on the other hand, has a 6.9-inch display when unfolded with up to 120Hz refresh rate. Like the Pro, the Pocket has a Snapdragon 888 4G SoC at the helm as well as 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. However, it has a configuration with the Premium Gold option at 12GB RAM and 512GB storage.
