Huawei’s Foldable Phone Actually Looks Amazing
This is a render of Huawei’s new foldable phone. The Chinese company showed the “finished product” at a private event to Korean telecoms, according to the country’s technology newspaper ET News.
Credit: ETNewsA senior official spoke to the paper, confirming that the “Huawei FolderBoop” — Google’s accidental translation from Korean — will support 5G networking. And allthough, the source couldn’t disclose specific design details, specifications, or the user interface, “it was more complete than expected.”
ET News claims that the phone will sport a foldable display almost completely devoid of bezels, measuring 8 inches when open (compared to Samsung’s 7.3-inch display). Outside, the phone will have a 5-inch screen that will allegedly occupy the entire front — except for a notch, unlike Samsung Galaxy F and its 4.6-inch external display.
ET News称，这款手机将采用几乎完全没有边框的可折叠显示屏，展开时尺寸为8英寸(三星的则为7.3英寸的显示屏相比)。折叠后屏幕为5英寸，据称将覆盖整个机身前部——除了一个凹槽，而三星Galaxy F折叠后屏幕为4.6英寸。
Huawei’s CEO Ken Hu already has pointed out that its foldable phone “could replace a PC” and that it will beat Samsung’s foldable to include 5G. Both companies were beaen in the war to release the first foldable phone, however, with unknown Chinese company Royole snatching the prized world’s first title on November 1.
Huawei is reportedly aiming to release its first foldable phone in June 2019, while announcing the phone at the Mobile World Congress next February in Barcelona, Spain. Samsung is expected to announce its foldable at the same venue, with a rumored March release.

Interesting, but it will hardly replace the personal computer. These devices (like tablets) are geared for CONSUMPTION. PCs are for productivity. What is really sad about this is that both Huawei and Samsung are unveiling this new product, but there will be no shortage of Americans who will see this, and still think that it was "copied". Such is the process of "life from the couch".

A "foldable phone" that replaces a PC? Yeah; ever tried typing on a phone keyboard or reading the small font for hours? That's a pretty lame claim. It didn't happen with tablets - it won't happen with a cell phone.

These devices will not be able to replace a PC unless they can add support of a docking station with access to mouse, keyboard and multiple large size monitors with full functionality access to productivity applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Photoshop, etc.

By far 3 things are most important: Performance, Storage, Trust.
iPhone ranks #1 in all three categories.

Please stop saying things like this can "replace a PC". Try using excel on an 8 inch screen.

Before you consider whether to buy samsung phone or not, do not forget that samsung harassed many US companies like Google, Faceboo, eBay, MS, Amazon, etc by selling DRAMs and SSDs with exceptionally high prices on purpose. Many US companies had to pay a huge amount of money for purchasing DRAMs amd SSDs while building up their data centers. Samsung intentionally adjusted memory output capacities to maintain the memory price to stay unacceptably high. Samsung sucks.

I don't care if it has a laser that can cut steel and a ringtone that attract unicorns. Anyone who buys anything made by Huawei is going to have China listening to their every phone call, viewing their camera and tracking their movements. The U.S. govt. has already banned anything made by them and for good reason. Buyer beware.

Anyone can make a render of a device, where is the actual device or do you want to show us something in the dark like Samsung did?

Yup, so the new feature will be an explosive battery, de-privacy listening to your conversations, and hackable for credit card information.

hacking North American companies for intellectual property and prospering from reverse engineering of patented innovations. Easier to steal years of research and development and then building upon it with cheap labor. Go ahead and support that behavior, just know several of the North American companies that helped benefit US economy are no longer in business as a result.

As if anyone trusts Chinese Junk. I'm sure they just stole this from Samsung anyways. The whole concept behind this is a gimmick anyways. In order to make this thin enough that people would even want to carry this then this phone has to be insanely fragile. Go buy a tablet if you really want a bigger screen.
