Fashionistas were early adopters of the smartphone, right after the techie people. Not only did these mobile phones come with cameras, but they also enabled online shopping, the taking of selfies, and the sharing of the latest sales information.
Being early adopters and always wanting to have the latest trends, it goes without saying that anyone who even thinks they are at least a bit stylish, people who love fashion are always looking for the latest smartphone; not just for better photography or memory, but also for the best looking version.
Apart from the ‘fruit’ phone that shall not be named, innovative designs like the newest Huawei smartphone are on the hot list of people who know what’s next; the Huawei P50 Pocket and P50 Pro are unique with their ‘gapless’ folding action. That, and the fact that this smartphone has been seen on lots of Kdrama and Cdrama screens, of course.
However what makes the latest version of this smartphone even more ‘fashionable’ is the link to one of the most interesting designers in fashion, Dutch haute couture designer Iris van Herpen. Van Herpen is considered to be one of the most talented and forward-thinking creators who continuously pushes the boundaries. She is particularly known for the way she combines technology – including biotechnology – with traditional haute couture construction techniques.
Van Herpen’s signature fluid yet geometric graphics have been embossed on the surface of the new smartphones, produced in a soft gold colourway. According to the brand, Van Herpen was inspired by “the principle of symbiosis”; and the new products are described as being “incredibly tactile”. A non-smooth surface on a smartphone is something new; something different and something stylish.
As with all Huawei products, the P50 Pro and P50 Pocket come with a full complement of excellent camera options, storage and battery life, all ensconced in a “Zirconium-based liquid metal and 2,100MPa Ultra-high Strength Steel” case. You can get all the technical information about these two new smartphones from consumer.huawei.com/sg/phones/p50-pro/.
The the Huawei P50 Pro and P50 Pocket are available at all Huawei authorised stores, including the new store at 313@Somerset, #02-25 – 27. The HUAWEI P50 Pro comes in Cocoa Gold and Golden Black.
