With the P50 Pocket, the Chinese tech giant placed an emphasis on a premium design and build quality. It comes in a White and Premium Gold variant (in the overseas market) with the former featuring a diamond like aesthetic while the Gold variant has specially made by a prominent haute couture designer, Iris Van Herpen.

The display even offers a 120Hz refresh rate with a 300Hz touch sampling rate as well.

The company’s R&D team spent years developing this key part of the phone, through which it offers a clamshell like inward folding design.

The company’s latest breakthrough in camera technology is Ultra Spectrum camera and its related sensors that allows it to offer improved image reproduction and capture minute details that help in producing clearer images even in the dark. Although, its key function is the new Ultra Spectrum Fluorescence Photography mode that lets users capture content and details that cannot be seen by the naked eye. In other words, it opens up a new world of patterns and colors that is otherwise unseen. This sensor can even be used practically to determine whether a user has properly applied sunscreen on their face to avoid sunburns.
