Huawei will launch foldable smartphone in 2019

A few weeks ago everything seemed to indicate that Huawei would be the first manufacturer to offer the first folding-screen smartphone on the market, moving ahead of all its competitors with a head start, including Samsung. The company has yet to take a step backwards and announces that its terminal will be pushed back to a wave "2019".

However, Huawei had made a goal according to the communication of some company officials at the end of April, but in the end, the folding smartphone of the brand should not arrive on the market before 2019, or after Samsung, if the latter respects its Own calendar. This was explained by the company's consumer business division manager, Jim Xu at the Shanghai MWp at the Gadget Match site.

 Huawei announced an output before the end of 2018 and even a real target according to the South Korean media ETnews. The idea was clearly to compete with Samsung frontally in this innovative market, by bringing him the market of the first buyers. The reason for this change in timing is unknown. Is it a delay on the development side? Strategic repositioning? We should know more in the next few weeks.

On the other hand, another smartphone arrives taking by surprise the market, it is a model for gamers. This is of course a strong trend in recent months and Huawei intends to take advantage of it before the end of the year. According to the statements of this manager, he would arrive in the second half of the year. On the technical side, one would find in particular the Turbo GPU, present on the Honor Play, the smartphone gamer proposed by the other brand of Huawei. This makes it possible to optimize the graphics performance and to better manage the energy consumption.  No other information is available at this time.

We also know that competition is fierce in this segment.  Beyond the Razer Phone which is the obvious reference, we also find the Xiaomi Black Shark, the Asus ROG phone or the ZTE Nubia Red Magic.

The latest innovative trend on which Huawei has not yet bet is the retractable camera as seen on the Oppo Find X or the Vivo NEX. Undoubtedly the subject of a forthcoming short-term announcement.
