Huawei Vows To Release Foldable Phone Within A Year

16 September 2018

Company's CEO, Richard Yu, in an interview with German newspaper Die Welt, has confirmed that a new smartphone with a foldable screen is in the development process and it will be an alternative to a traditional laptop. Now, the company has confirmed that it will launch a new foldable smartphone within a year. Perhaps because the smartphone display is too small for you. The answer would be surely answered within the coming years.

"We will change that", he reportedly said.

The remarks also come just weeks after DJ Koh, head of mobile at Samsung, said it was "time to deliver" on a foldable smartphone, fuelling speculation that the device could debut at the firm's developer conference in November.

CHINESE PHONE MAKER Huawei is squaring up to rival Samsung with the promise of a folding smartphone in 2019.

Huawei's decision means that it will become the second handset maker to confirm it is seeking to make foldable phones a commercial reality. "It is conceivable that a display can be folded out", the executive added.

Yu also talked about replacements for smartphones, saying, "The smartphone comes after the smartphone", suggesting there is no replacement soon. "And with artificial intelligence it gets even smarter". 5G will play a vital role in the evolution of smartphones, and it will be "fun" for users, he said.

Recently, it was reported that Samsung is planning to launch its long-awaited foldable smartphone by the end of this year.
