Huawei is launching the foldable 5G-enabled phone in February. The CEO of Huawei has confirmed the launching of the foldable 5G phone at the Mobile World Congress.
At the closing of the pre-MWC 2019 briefing in Beijing the Huawei CEO Richard Yu announced, “We look forward to seeing you in Barcelona in February, where we will launch the world’s first 5G smartphone with foldable screen.”
It is expected that foldable phones will rule the smartphone market soon. Samsung is also planning to launch a foldable phone this year and Xiaomi also revealed a video of a double folding phone.
But the advantage Huawei’s foldable phone will have is its 5G capabilities. This will raise the bar for other smartphones companies.
Yu revealed that the Huawei foldable phone will operate on Huawei’s Kirin 980 processor and will feature the 5G-enabling Balong 5000 modem.
On February 25th to 28th the MWC 2019 event will be held in Barcelona. Huawei is also determined to overtake Samsung and become the leading smartphone maker and seller in the world by the end of 2020.
