  • Samsung Teases Foldable Galaxy Smartphone: Galaxy F?

That's right, Huawei today unveiled a teaser of its first foldable 5G phone which is said to be unveiled later this month at MWC 2019. The event from Huawei will take place on February 24 at 2 P.M CET (6:30 P.M IST) at Barcelona. The device details are largely unclear, but the teaser image shared speaks volumes of the innovation. How is Huawei protecting the device is going to be the main question here, especially when the company is not known for employing Corning's glass as its display protection. While Samsung and another Chinese phone-maker, Royole, have the screen fold in half like a book, Xiaomi chose to add a second fold.

Samsung stock fell 0.2 percent after the result on Thursday, in a flat broader market.

Pet LetsGoDigital, it seems Huawei's foldable will open up to a tablet format and won't have a clamshell design.

The video, which was released by Samsung Vietnam before being quickly revoked, suggests that the Galaxy F will be much thinner than foldable prototypes we've seen, such as the Royole FlexPai that debuted at CES in January.

It has been no secret that large flexible displays are coming to devices, with the Royole FlexPai being debuted previous year as the first smartphone with a flexible display. Samsung will be introducing theirs on February 20th in San Francisco while Huawei will be introducing theirs on February 24th, days ahead of their scheduled MWC Keynote on February 26th.

Charges add to US-China tensions
Allegedly, in 2013 Huawei set up a bonus scheme to incentivise its employees to steal trade secrets from its competitors. Meng is alleged to have been personally involved in concealing the true nature of the Huawei-Skycom relationship.


Alongside its foldable phone, we might also see Huawei unveil its P30 series of smartphones.

Crucially, though, and another reason why we think that the device in this video could very well be the unannounced Samsung folding phone is that the design, despite getting better, remains fundamentally the same.

2019 is believed to be the year of foldable phones and some companies have confirmed that they are all in on this technology.

Huawei will not be the only manufacturer to present a foldable smartphone at MWC 2019.

The invite didn't disclose any information about the upcoming smartphone.
