  • Samsung Teases Foldable Galaxy Smartphone: Galaxy F?

Huawei had earlier confirmed that the company was working on a foldable 5G smartphone, and soon after, announced it would be launched at MWC 2019. But with everyone else seemingly bringing foldable phones to MWC, Huawei has to show off something.

The blog's renders of this handset come on the heels of LetsGoDigital's reveal of similar renderings for a new Samsung foldable that nobody seemed to realize was in the works, adding another potential competitor to this device from Huawei.

Some shaky rumours have suggested that the as-yet-unnamed device could feature a 5in screen that folds out into a near-bezeless 8in screen, with a punch-hole cutout for the front-facing camera. Huawei shared a teaser on its official Weibo account, offering a glimpse of its foldable phone along with the launch date just four days after Samsung's big event. So far, Samsung has given a demo of its foldable phone and it is expected to provide more details about it at its Unpacked event on February 20 where it will also unveil the Galaxy S10.

It's time to start using the tools and technology that is available to them to help keep the integrity of game intact. The NFL has admitted in a document filed in court that an officiating mistake was made in the NFC championship game.

After Samsung, LG and Xiaomi throwing their hat in the foldable smartphone segment, 2019 appears to be the year when the foldable form factor truly becomes mainstream. The company's event is scheduled to take place on 24th February, so be sure to stick around for it.

Huawei initially revealed in October 2018 that it was developing a smartphone-tablet hybrid for release later in 2019. Last week, Richard Yu, Huawei's CEO, talked about launching the company's first 5G foldable phones. The modem is also the first to support countries' differing 5G architecture. Comment in the section below and stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more news and updates. The company trademarked Mate F, Mate Flex, Mate Flexi, and Mate Fold names at the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) a year ago, and it's quite possible that the company will use one of those names for the upcoming foldable handset.
