Huawei to launch its foldable 5G smartphone on February 24

Chinese smartphone brand had earlier confirmed that it has been working on a foldable 5G smartphone and thereafter, it also announced that it will be launching the device at MWC 2019. Huawei has now taken to Twitter to share a press invite that is scheduled for February 24, 2019 in Barcelona, which is a day before the Mobile World Congress begins.

It is also worth noticing that Huawei’s launch will be four days after Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event, at which the South Korean technology giant is expected to launch its Galaxy F foldable phone.

The image that has been shared by Huawei on Twitter shows what appears to be a foldable smartphone’s hinge. So, it is safe to assume that the company is keeping its promise of launching the 5G-enabled foldable smartphone at MWC 2019 in Barcelona.

The Chinese smartphone brand had announced its plan to launch the device later this month in January this year. Reports have also suggested that the foldable phone by Huawei will be powered by the company’s HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC and the Balong 5000 modem.

To recall, reports about Huawei working on a foldable smartphone had first surfaced online in the fourth quarter of 2017. Another report claimed that Huawei has plans of beating Samsung in the race of foldable phones by launching its device before the latter’s. However, since Samsung has already hinted that it may be launching its foldable phone at its Galaxy Unpacked event on February 20, Huawei will not be able to do that now.

Coming back to Huawei’s device, it is expected to feature a 7.2-inch display and the company will reportedly produce around 24,000-30,000 units of the smartphone. However, there is no word on how many units will arrive eventually.

A number of smartphone companies are expected to unveil their foldable phones this year. Besides Samsung and Huawei, LG, Motorola and Xiaomi will also be seen launching their respective foldable phones this year. Cupertino-based technology company Apple will join the foldables bandwagon a year late in 2020, according to various reports, as the company has no plans of launching a foldable device at its September event this year.
