Huawei, the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer by volume, has been teasing its first 5G smartphone for quite some time. Likewise, the company has also made no secret of its plans to introduce a new foldable device next year. And now, in an interesting turn of events, it turns out that these two devices are actually just one.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum, Huawei’s rotating Chairman Ken Hu admitted that the company’s first 5G-ready smartphone will actually be a foldable device too. Moreover, it was confirmed that the new device is on track to arrive by mid-2019, which coincides perfectly with the brand’s previous comments that confirmed a 5G smartphone would arrive by June 2019.
