Of course, this is not the first time the talk of Huawei working on a foldable smartphone will be heard, the first news came two months ago when the Chinese company patented a device with flexible display. Now, a Korean media platform says that Huawei is currently working with Chinese display maker BOE to launch the first commercially available foldable handset in November.
The device which allegedly has 8-inch flexible display is set to rival the Galaxy Note 9 later this year. BOE is purportedly working on four different smartphone designs with two companies. Samsung could be one of those clients, but since the Korean company would probably do its own flexible panels, it’s more likely that either Xiaomi or Oppo is the other. The latter has already filed a patent for its own version of a flexible handset.
Other possible partners of BOE are Lenovo and ZTE as they have experimented with flexible devices some time ago.
