Race on for foldable phone
It looks as though Huawei is in a close race against Samsung, LG and other manufacturers for the title of “world’s first truly foldable smartphone”.
According to a report from Korean news site ETNews, Huawei has recently signed non-disclosure agreements with its suppliers in connection with its mysterious “foldable phone” that could be unveiled as early as November.
That date could likely win the brand the title of being the “world’s first” – but it’s not sure whether the foldable phone will be available for purchase.
That could give the company some time to figure out what apps would complement double the screen real estate, which comes with the unique feature of being able to be folded down the middle.
And according to the same sources, Huawei is also planning to unveil a folding phone with 5G support in the later part of 2019.
Earlier this month, it was reported that LG had been granted a patent for a foldable smartphone design while Samsung Mobile’s president has been quoted saying that they too will have something to show in regards of a truly foldable Galaxy smartphone. – Relaxnews
