Huawei to launch 5G enabled foldable display phone in mid-2019

Huawei plans to equip its foldable smartphone with 5G.

The race to the first smartphone with a folding screen has officially begun, but will their users enjoy this retro style phone that manufacturers and designer strived so hard to escape from?

At the press meet, Huawei deputy chairman Ken Hu confirmed that the company is aiming to launch multiple phones in the year 2019.

This device will be the company's first 5G phone - and it may be the first foldable screen to hit the market if a competitor doesn't beat it to the punch. The Chinese manufacturer is now gunning to become the first firm to debut a smartphone with foldable screen. Huawei will launch this phone sometime in mid-2019, Hu has confirmed.

5G phones are expected to deliver 100 times faster data connectivity than 4G networks. This will be a little ahead of previous schedule since previously Huawei had said that it would launch its first foldable phone in the second half of 2019. It is speculated that the Kirin 980 which is the world's first 7nm chipset will be powering the handset.

"In our first [5G] smartphone we're going to introduce a foldable screen". While none has come up an exact date, everyone seems to be talking about 2019 as the year for 5G. The company also said in an interview with T3 that it would be releasing 5G phones in the same year.

Huawei rival Samsung is set to launch its first foldable phone in 2018 itself, the company has confirmed, and Huawei might be looking to counter that with its own take on the futuristic platform.

Putting 5G connectivity into a folding phone makes sense to us: 5G handsets are likely to require more cooling than their predecessors and they'll also benefit from larger batteries because the faster speeds will enable (and no doubt encourage) people to use their phones for more battery-intensive tasks.
