The Huawei Pocket 2 will soon be available in China. The foldable smartphone’s debut date was disclosed by the firm, but not much more was disclosed. The device is anticipated to replace the November 2022 Chinese launch of the Huawei Pocket S.

The Huawei Pocket 2’s color variations and finishes have been hinted at in several recent design leaks.

Huawei has officially announced that the Huawei Pocket 2 will launch on February 22 at 2:30 pm local time (12 pm IST) via a Weibo post. While the teaser does not explicitly reveal the phone’s appearance, it does allude to two circular modules that resemble the Huawei P50 Pocket and earlier Huawei Pocket S. It is anticipated that one of these circular components will house the back cameras, while the other would probably house the outside display.
