  • Samsung foldable gaming phone patent is intriguing

While it looks cool, the shape of the hinge may augur that it won't fold flat. 5G networks are still far from any sort of useful maturity, but the hype around them and 5G phones will be proceeding as planned in 2019. It can be used as a wide screen device in portrait mode and turns into a small handy mobile by folding the screen in landscape mode. This tells us that all the major components of the smartphone will be in there, with the outer cover serving as a means after opening which the user can access the internal screen. Huawei on Friday confirmed that it will unveil its own foldable device just a few days later on February 24th, a day before Mobile World Congress officially kicks off officially in Barcelona, Spain. We have seen manufacturers like Samsung, Xiaomi and Royole show off their prototypes and it is indeed a testament of what we should expect in the future.

Around a year ago, a patent leak spoke about Huawei developing a foldable display phone that was in the works.

The phone will feature Huaweis new Balong 5000 5G modem, which will be hooked up to a Kirin 980 chipset. The Galaxy S10 appears to be the first in line for a launch but reports have revealed in the past that the company will speed up that launch to make room for its foldable device.

Huawei's teaser shows what seems to be a bend in the display, hinting at its hyped foldable phone. 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. However, the Cupertino giant will not go onboard the foldable category anytime soon and a 5G equipped iPhone is expected to arrive before 2020 at the earliest.
