With only few weeks left before the opening of the Mobile World Congress 2019 to be held at Barcelona, Spain, manufacturers are lining up to show their latest innovative products and get the publicity first. This year is expected to be the year of foldable smartphones with many manufacturers already developing their own and among these there seems to be Huawei.
The Chinese brand already confirmed its existence of foldable smartphone and even claimed to have a working prototype. The company who reached the 200 million smartphone limit in 2018 beating Apple in the sales chart in some quarters is yet to release any information or images about its device. So the folks at LetsGoDigital, a Dutch publication have created a series of 3D renderings that gives a glimpse of how the Huawei foldable smartphone might look.
The renders are created based on the information from patents filed by the Chinese manufacturer. The final product might be completely different than the renders if Huawei had decided to take a completely differently path. The price of the device is rumoured to be around $1000 which is half compared to the Samsung’s foldable smartphone that is expected to be priced around $2,000.
Huawei has released a teaser related to the MWC 2019 event on February 24 in its official Twitter handle. The teaser image with the text “Connecting the Future” clearly show a smartphone folded in a V shape with a display on both sides. Huawei’s foldable smartphone therefore will have a screen that will stay outside even when it is folded. When it is opened, it will be around the size of a tablet. At this moment, there is no other information about the specs of the device but it will likely be a high-end product considering the technology is new to the market.
