  • Huawei hints at a foldable phone launch during MWC 2019.
  • The company will be hosting an event on February 24 in Barcelona
  • The upcoming foldable device is also speculated to also come with 5G support.


Alongside Samsung, Huawei was among the first smartphone makers gunning to launch a foldable smartphone. Very little was known about the company's plans or its foldable device but Huawei has now officially announced an event in Barcelona that will be held ahead of MWC 2019. where it is expected to launch a foldable smartphone. The foldable smartphone is also speculated to come with 5G support. The development comes recently after a Dutch website released the 3D renders of Huawei’s alleged foldable phone.

As per the renders, the phone could sport a large display, which could be bigger than the Galaxy Fold. Unlike the Galaxy Fold that folds inwards, hiding the large display, Huawei’s phone is touted to fold like a clamshell. This means that it could have just one foldable display. The Huawei foldable phone could be equipped with a Balong 5000 chipset, and if this turns out to be true, it will have 5G capabilities. It is also assumed that the foldable phone will be powered by the Kirin 980 chipset with Dual NPU.

Last year, Walter Ji, President, Huawei Western Europe Consumer Business Group talked about company’s plan for 2019. The executive spoke to a German publication and shared the roadmap of what the Chinese smartphone maker plans to do in 2019. At that time, the executive said that Huawei would launch a foldable smartphone, 5G-enabled phones, a smartphone with a quad-camera setup on the back with 10x lossless zoom, and AI on Kirin processor.

Ji said that the company wants to innovate. “Next year we will definitely see more innovation in the camera, and now we have three, imagine four for next year. Even more zoom will come. Three or five times the zoom is not enough, ten times the zoom in consistent quality with the smartphone, this is unique! In these areas, we research, and there we could have one or the other surprise for you."
