Today is the official launch date for the Huawei Pocket S in China. According to rumours, the Huawei P50 Pocket, which was unveiled in December of last year and is powered by the Snapdragon 888 4G chip, will be replaced by the Pocket S. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and 8+ Gen 1 chipsets, which are both available in the Chinese market, power the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Motorola Razr 22 flip phones, respectively.
The Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip will be found in the OPPO Find N Flip, which is scheduled to go on sale in December of this year. Huawei has chosen to introduce the Pocket S as a non-flagship handset, whereas other OEMs have chosen to debut clamshell phones with flagship specifications.
