Huawei to unveil its foldable phone this month

As for the foldable phone, the one in the teaser definitely looks a bit different than the one they showed off late previous year. What is known about this device? The tech website LetsGoDigital then developed a 3D render of the device to get a better view of the device.

In October 2017, Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei's Consumer Business Group, reported for the first time that Huawei is developing a foldable smartphone.

Some shaky rumours have suggested that the as-yet-unnamed device could feature a 5in screen that folds out into a near-bezeless 8in screen, with a punch-hole cutout for the front-facing camera. There was only a small gap between them that needed to be fixed.

After a year of rumors, Huawei has finally announced the launch date of its First Foldable Smartphone. Since the P20 was the first smartphone to feature a triple lens camera, we will most probably see further enhancements in the category.

"The big worry I have with the sudden rush in foldable phones coming out now from several manufacturers is that the technology could be coming to market before the software is properly optimized to work with foldable designs", said Ovum senior analyst Daniel Gleeson. This processor was presented in late 2018. As mentioned, one of them is Samsung and another one is Motorola who is expected to reveal the upgraded version of RAZR phone at MWC 2019.

Around a year ago, a patent leak spoke about Huawei developing a foldable display phone that was in the works.

We're also expecting a fourth variant with a 6.7-inch display, 12GB of RAM, up to 1TB of NAND storage and 5G support.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi surprised everyone earlier this month when it showed off its foldable smartphone concept on social media. It has also been claimed that Huawei could be looking to make the screen larger than Samsung. What's odd is when the phone is unfolded, the external display was still running in the video. These are devices which people work on, play games, watch content and increasingly access services such as online banking.

The invite image depicted what appears to be a foldable smartphone's hinge, giving slight hint as to its design. However, in a folding or unfolding process, a flexible display panel is easily damaged due to bending or squeezing, and a service life of a mobile phone is greatly shortened. $1800 United States dollars / €1600 Euro (128GB model).

Huawei has scheduled a press conference on Sunday 24 February at 14:00 CET. The company may also simultaneously release a new MateBook notebook and MediaPad tablet.
