The image tweeted by Huawei today (Feb. 1) shows the corner of a foldable phone with the title "Connecting the future" over it. After a long presentation, Huawei announced that it will bring their first foldable phone, a 5G device on MWC. It looks like the phone folds down the middle and keeps the screen outside.
Huawei's foldable phone is likely also going to feature 5G connectivity. The 7nm Kirin 980 chipset will be equipped with enhanced performance and bolster several new features to come with the device. Plus we already knew the device would be 5G-compatible, and the above teaser suggests that the device won't have an inward-folding screen like Samsung.
"Moreover, this device will be a bit larger than the Samsung prototype of 4.6" and 7.3" diagonals.
Phone manufacturers are also trying to move away from the slab design choice of the traditional smartphone and moving away from its limitations by trying new things like fold-able phones.
We've been speculating on Samsung's foldable phone for a while now, but it seems that the company has not one but two foldable smartphones in the works. We are not sure which smartphone maker will win the race in launching their foldable handset first.
Samsung is expected to formally introduce the Galaxy F smartphone during the February 20th Galaxy S10 press conference, various reports have claimed.
