Huawei Set To Unveil 5G Foldable Phone On Feb

Samsung Teases Foldable Galaxy Smartphone: Galaxy F?

The company actually hinted last week, during a press conference in China, that its 5G smartphone will be announced at MWC 2019, while Huawei also announced the Balong 5000 multi-mode 5G chipset.

While it looks cool, the shape of the hinge may augur that it won't fold flat.

Already, several Chinese smartphone-makers, allegedly working on leaked Samsung data for foldable screens, have unveiled their own designs ahead of Samsung.

After Samsung, LG and Xiaomi throwing their hat in the foldable smartphone segment, 2019 appears to be the year when the foldable form factor truly becomes mainstream. 5G mobile phones are another trend we will get to see majorly this year.

Then the question remains whether the screen will fold inwards or outwards.

There is also a possibility that there will be another 5G handset, just that it won't be a foldable one.

The foldable device isn't likely to be Samsung's actual foldable smartphone, but rather a concept. You can also see that a D-pad is situated on the left-hand side, while six small buttons are visible on the right. Huawei's tweet doesn't reveal enough, the official launch will take place on 24 February 14.00 CET Barcelona. What's odd is when the phone is unfolded, the external display was still running in the video. Samsung will be introducing theirs on February 20th in San Francisco while Huawei will be introducing theirs on February 24th, days ahead of their scheduled MWC Keynote on February 26th. Yes, that's the still MIA foldable phone that some even doubt truly exists yet.

Along with the camera and screen there's a few other things that the image may reveal including a silver and blue colour scheme and a date on the screen which may suggest when the phone will go on sale.

Smartphones of that size include the iPhones SE and XR, or the upcoming Galaxy S10's previewed low-end variant the S10E.

"It is certain that foldable devices using flexible display technology are going to be hot topic at MWC", said Ben Wood, Chief of Research at CCS Insight.
