Our top smartphone to kick off 2022 with, and why HUAWEI P50 Pro is the best camera phone with aesthetic design while HUAWEI P50 Pocket brings fashion, beauty and tech innovations into the fold.
Smartphones are each person’s primary window to the wider world online, key communication device and constant companion, helping us work, play, communicate in this digital era and even relax. That is because the best smartphones today are much more than just phones – they come with state-of-the-art cameras, the sleekest designs, humongous batteries that can keep up with our hectic lifestyle, blazing fast charging speeds, music libraries and much more. Besides, install the right apps on your phone and collaborate it with the right accessories and there is a compelling argument that you do not need any other piece of technology, as most people nowadays would use their phones as the primary device in their daily lives.
With that in mind, Huawei recently announced the launch of not one, but two outstanding new flagship phones: the new HUAWEI P50 Pro and the HUAWEI P50 Pocket.
While HUAWEI P50 Pro returns to the philosophies that sit at the heart of high-end photography, with its True-Form Dual-Matrix Camera that revamps the camera experience from head to toe, an elegant design that is depicted by the Dual-Matrix Camera, a large battery that supports 66W Wired & 50W Wireless HUAWEI SuperCharge, etc., the latter HUAWEI P50 Pocket brings fashion, beauty and amazing tech innovations into the fold setting a new standard for smartphone industrial design. Huawei joined forces with prominent haute couture designer, Iris Van Herpen, in a cross-industry collaboration to create the HUAWEI P50 Pocket Premium Edition. The latest flagship smartphone takes HUAWEI IMAGE™ to new heights with the improved HUAWEI XD Fusion Pro image engine, which now supports Ultra Spectrum Image Technology. The overall user experience sees major improvements, with the Main Screen offering a large display and the Cover Screen featuring new ways for consumers to interact with the device.
