The Huawei Pocket S is the company’s first and most affordable foldable smartphone to date.

Since the initial Samsung Galaxy Fold made its debut back in 2019, foldables have truly advanced. The technology has advanced to the point where it can compete well with traditional high-end smartphones and even beyond them. It is no longer seen as a novelty.

That is not to imply that there aren’t still a number of issues with foldables, including worries about durability and subpar software optimization. However, cost has been one area where foldables have struggled to move more.
Foldables continue to be among the most costly smartphones available, significantly surpassing most (if not all) high-end flagship models. The most recent iPhone 14 costs less than half as much as the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in its present incarnation.

The Huawei Pocket S, which is now the lowest yet still reasonably priced foldable, has made its debut. The device’s entry-level 128GB variant costs CNY5,988 (about $830).
Although this is still more expensive than the entry-level iPhone 14, it almost feels like a bargain in light of how expensive foldable technology is and how much the competing options cost. The uncontested king of foldables, the Galaxy Z Flip 4, costs over $200 more.

Despite its affordable pricing, the Huawei Pocket S has an excellent list of specifications. A large 4000 mAh battery, a stunning OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a 40MP primary camera supported by a 13MP ultra wide camera, and 8GB of RAM are all included.

The Pocket S’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G CPU and absence of 5G connection are two of the few drawbacks. Given what it is intended to be, neither actually destroy the gadget.

Overall, the main barrier preventing foldables from selling is price. They won’t completely enter the mainstream until that obstacle is removed. Possibly the first of several devices to achieve this is the Huawei Pocket S.
