Huawei to beat Samsung by launching world's first foldable smartphone

It's not coming to all Android phones, at least not at first.

It's unclear as yet what device Samsung will be unveiling through this video preview.

According to "analysts and industry sources familiar with the matter" speaking with Nikkei Asian Review, Chinese device manufacturer Huawei has its sights set on releasing a foldable phone before Samsung has the chance.

Samsung will also offer a rugged Protective Silicone Cover with a built-in kickstand which is USA military standard MIL-STD 810G certified and able to withstand a fall of as much as 1.8 metres.

Huawei is going to partner with local display supplier BOE for the flexible OLED screen that would go inside this unnamed Huawei foldable handset.

For this reason they expect Huawei to keep the numbers small, around 20,000 to 30,000 units, and limit the potential market to serious early adopters.

Twelve-time Olympic medallist Ryan Lochte says he is "devastated" by his 14-month ban for a doping violation. Lochte returned to competition a year ago , most notably winning the 200-meter individual medley at the U.S.

Samsung's Galaxy foldable phone, also supposed to be a limited run in the first year, is rumored to cost $1,500 to $2,000 because of the extra costs that went into creating this sophisticated handset. BOE Technology Group is an industry leader in manufacturing LCD panels.

Given the amount of attention given to simple rumours of Samsung's folding phone, still now referred to as the Galaxy X, you could understand why Huawei would want to capture some of that for itself.

What say you, non-Samsung phone owners?

Huawei might beat Samsung to the punch with the first retail folding smartphone.

Gaming phones appear to be an attractive new smartphone niche with companies like Razer, Xiaomi, and most recently Asus, putting in considerable development resources to create powerful and attractive gaming designs.
