Huawei set to announce its 5G foldable phone at MWC event
Huawei promised to unveiled a foldable 5G phone at this year MWC and this is still standing, thanks to a teaser image released by the company itself, which sets the unveil date as February 24 at 14:00 CET.
The phone will come with the Huawei’s new Balong 5000 5G modem, which will be powered by a Kirin 980 chipset. It seems the phone folds down the middle and keeps the screen outside.
Technically, the company promised “5G phones”, plural, so we might see a non-foldable phone as well.
Well, the event announcement mentions “Internet of Everything”, so it’s likely that the company’s new 5G home router will attend too. It uses the same modem and supports HiLink, Huawei’s smart home protocol.
The router features Wi-Fi 6 as the 802.11ac isn’t fast enough for 5G speeds. However, no current phone supports the new Wi-Fi standard, so we expect Huawei’s new handsets to be among the first.
