Huawei Might Beat Samsung In The Race Of Foldable Smartphones!


The upcoming trendiest trend, the foldable smartphone, is just around the corner and we can see big mobile company names competing for the title of ‘pioneers of foldable smartphones.’

From the onset of the year 2018, we have been hearing lots of latest tech news about the upcoming foldable smartphones that will boost-up the game of smartphones in the most miraculous way. But all we were served with was rumors and unwanted hype, while no possible release date or month was announced by any of the smartphone companies.

Well guess what, there’s no more waiting as the Chinese smartphone company is all set to win the race by introducing the first-ever foldable smartphone at the start of the year, 2019.

Although, the big-shot of smartphone companies, Samsung, is taking all possible majors to introduce its foldable smartphone, Galaxy F, the next year before anyone else. But now the tables and eyes have turned towards Huawei, who seems determined to snatch the crown from Samsung and become the first smartphone company to introduce foldable smartphones in the world.

Huawei Or Samsung Galaxy F? Who’s nearest to the finishing line?

While most of the technology updates geeks were sure that no one’s near to Samsung in the foldable smartphone’s race but Huawei, one of the biggest smartphone company right now, gave us them a second chance to think.

According to Yuanta Investment Consulting analyst Jeff Pu, Huawei is determined to showcase its best creation to date, the foldable smartphone, “very early 2019.”

While Samsung wants to win the race by being “the best and first” company to introduce a foldable smartphone. Huawei is a bit more focused on showcasing its product at the earliest even if it causes them to compromise on the quality of their smartphone. Jeff Pu further said that “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.”

The potential pioneer of a foldable smartphone, Huawei, will apparently be using BOE, the Chinese display maker, for its foldable OLED panel.

What can we expect from BOE? Is Huawei taking a big risk?

Being a tech-blogger and blind follower of anything that’s trendy, it’s important for me to dwell in the subject a little more. As we all know how smartphones can get this generation mad crazy over anything new it introduces, so, therefore, Huawei wants to be the first obsession of the technology-obsessed generation. And that is only possible by beating Samsung in the race of this most unique ever technology.

Like I mentioned above, sources have been pouring out news that Huawei will only be producing these smartphones in small quantity and not in bulks as the aim is to be the first one in introducing something grand and new in the technology markets.

However, according to some tech-analysts, the race to be labeled as the pioneer of the technology might not end the way Huawei is expecting.

The BOE Technologies is known for its specialization in television displays. The manufacturing of OLEDs itself is something the company only recently started, therefore we believe that Huawei is taking a big risk in giving the project as an experiment to BOE Technologies.

On the other hand, Huawei’s initiative of taking up a fellow manufacturer is great, but the technology thinkers believe that BOE might be unlikely to match the quality of OLEDs made by Samsung. And Huawei’s risk and greed to beat Samsung might turn out to the reason behind its downfall.

Samsung’s foldable smartphone:

While we have been talking about Samsung as the runner-up in the race but guess what? Quality always wins.

In order to keep up with the name and fame that it has earned, Samsung is not in a mood to compromise over quality. The Korean smartphone giant made a plan of releasing a foldable smartphone, expected to materialize by the mid of 2019. Their smartphone is expected to boast a 7.3-inch display and a foldable battery while its price is expected to be between $1500 and $2000. And oh one more thing…

Contrary to burning rumors, Samsung’s foldable smartphone is going to call Samsung Galaxy F, not Samsung Galaxy X. I know I’ve told it before but it feels good to pour out more new rumors.

This all we could get from the latest technology news in the world for more news regarding the official release date of the foldable smartphones, you need to stay connected with our recent technology news and blogs.
