Huawei’s foldable phone may launch ahead of Samsung

Technology Inceptions

Samsung has long held the display innovation lead by bringing out all the latest experience in display, have announced an upcoming “unbreakable” flexible phone screen’s which will be extra tough and durable. But Huawei has partnered with BOE Technology Group for supplying it with flexible OLED display for its premium foldable smartphone.

"The Chinese company wants to be the first in the industry even if the display technology from its panel supplier might not be that ready like Samsung," Jeff Pu Consulting analyst at Yuanta Investment .

On the hardware front, any sort of folding mechanism or design will inevitably make the phone thicker, simultaneously allowing less space for a battery and making larger power demands by virue of its larger screen. It’s difficult to imagine a first-generation foldable device being anywhere near as refined as modern smartphone flagships with conventional displays. Then there’s the massive issue of software: a foldable phone will require an adaptable user interface that responds quickly to changes in screen size and also provides some tailored experiences unavailable on other phones.

As it is right now, there are no real foldable handsets in the market. It is race now on who will bring out the foldable device to the market first.
