Huawei announces its foldable smartphone plan

Speaking to ominous-sounding German newspaper Die Welt, Huawei CEO Richard Yu confirmed that the long-rumoured device would be released "within a year". The company also promises to show a unique novelty in the next year. "Probably because you find a smartphone display too small". Huawei's foldable phone is expected to come out within the next year. While it's true that as smartphones have become more advanced technologically and people rely on them for more and more tasks every day, it's hard to believe they will replace computers anytime soon. We can change that.

While Yu is talking about making the laptops obsolete, Samsung's mobile chief DJ Koh recently said that the company plans on using flexible screens and related technologies to create an entirely new line of smartphones, but doesn't plan on making a laptop alternative. The CEO said he expects Huawei's foldable phone to replace PCs.

"It nearly feels with foldable displays that technology companies are using this as something to highlight how innovative and technologically advanced they are. without really considering the nuts and bolts that would make it a commercial success", he added. "It is conceivable that a display can be folded out", he said, optimistically. It will be the key, whether at work, in private life, when paying or entertainment.

"[The smartphone] is playing an increasingly important role in the lives of users".

Samsung's version is reportedly called the Galaxy X.
