Huawei Announced Foldable 5G Smartphone
Huawei Announced Foldable 5G Smartphone: Chinese mobile phone company Huawei announced that it is working on foldable 5G smartphones, Engadget has reported.
Huawei Chief Executive Officer Richard Yu said that they are exploring the possibility of developing foldable 5G smartphones.
Even though the company had stated that its foldable 5G foldable smartphone is set for release in 2019, the CEO added that it will not be available for customers in the immediate future.
Yu was said that his company focusing on introducing a smartphone like the Mate 20 X — a smartphone with a 7.2-inch screen that could certainly use a fold.
The idea of a foldable smartphone has been around for years now but technical issues have hampered its sale to the general public.
Samsung had earlier teased the release of a foldable smartphone in 2018.
The Huawei CEO Richard Yu spoke out at the recent Mate 20 Pro launch where he confirmed the 5G nature of the company’s new foldable phone. He said: “We are working on foldable phones. Foldable 5G phones.” While he didn’t say it in this sentence, rumours suggest the plan is to release the handset in 2019.
Samsung has also expressed a desire to be the first company to release a “truly foldable smartphone” early in 2019 with its Galaxy X, although this launch date keeps getting pushed back. Will Huawei be there first? Samsung is expected to launch 5G in one handset but the foldable ability in another – whereas Huawei appears to want to combine the two. Samsung’s developer conference, next week, may reveal more about its foldable phone plans.
Samsung is expected to launch it’s foldable phone in early 2019 with Huawei’s phone also expected around that time.
