Chinese tech major, Huawei is reportedly planning to launch their rumoured foldable smartphone in November. If the reports are true, Huawei could be the first OEM to bring a truly foldable smartphone.
Samsung, Lenovo, Sony, LG, and Apple, all appear to be sketching out plans for a truly foldable phone. But it seems like Huawei could be the one to claim that coveted world’s first title.
The reports come from Korean publication ETNews, which claims that the news has come out of sources having direct knowledge about the plans. The sources suggest that the foldable handset is under development, and the company is aiming at November launch. Sources also claim that Huawei has recently got into NDA terms with suppliers.
The sources further claim that the project is being handled by Huawei’s Shanghai R&D CTO. The phone could be showcased in November, but it won’t be going on sale until the company receives feedback on the first phone. Huawei is said to incorporate the suggested changes and then release the final model.
Sources also told ETNews that the phone will most likely feature LG’s OLED display, which LG has been long experimenting with.
