Huawei CEO confirms foldable 5G phone coming in 2019

19 October 2018 5

Huawei and Samsung have been in a sort of a race to be the first one to come up with a foldable smartphone. During the launch of the recent Mate 20 Series, CEO of Huawei Technologies Consumer Business Group, Richard Yu announced that Huawei is set to launch a 5G smartphone with a foldable display around June in 2019.

These comments are in line with Huawei’s chairman Ken Hu’s announcement in September that the company is planning to launch more than a few devices in 2019 including a 5G ready foldable smartphone. He reiterated the company’s intent of beating Samsung to launch a phone with a flexible display.

Huawei wants to make a foldable phone because they can be easily folded and stored in pockets. When unfolded these phones can become as large as a tablet with a big display.

At this time it is really unclear if Samsung or Huawei which company will become the first one to launch such a phone. Though it looks like Samsung may which is holding a developers event next month may reveal one such phone next month in November or in CES 2019 early next year.

Samsung’s foldable phone is also said to be a 5G smartphone though it may not be Samsung’s first 5G device. Though the Galaxy F or X as it is being called at the moment may not be a cheap device however it could make the concept more viable and acceptable by all.
