Huawei Is Working on a Foldable 5G Phone, Confirmed

Huawei is known for introducing smartphones with awesome features, at not-so-big budgets. Now, it is clear that the company is working on a foldable smartphone with 5G Network support. There were rumors from the very beginning that Huawei is planning to come up with a foldable smartphone, thus beating Samsung in grabbing the first position. This week, during the launch event of Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, CEO of the company, Richard Yu, said that the company has been working on foldable 5G phones for some time. He also said that the manufacturer plans to launch them in 2019.

With this comment from the Chief Executive himself, it’s clear that Huawei is stepping up the various games of flagship competition. It was also reported earlier that Huawei will be one of the first manufacturers to be launching a 5G-powered device. Some reports said that Huawei is building a specific chip that has been well-optimized for 5G performance. Now that Richard Yu’s comment is live, it is reasonable to believe that Huawei will be combining the 5G Network performance and foldable display into the same device. Richard Yu, did not, however, reveal specific details about the device.

There is not much information available about the foldable display or design either. It is expected that both Huawei and Samsung would be using the philosophy of portability in the whole device. That is, the foldable design would allow users to fit a massive screen inside their pockets, making full-screen activities funnier than they really are. In the case of Huawei, some sources say that the full-screen size of the foldable phone may resemble the actual screen size of the recently-launched Huawei Mate 20 X. For now, however, the only source to be relied on is the bunch of rumors from multiple sources.
