BEIJING – As the world gears up for this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) starting later this month in Barcelona, Spain, Huawei has now confirmed that it will unveil a high-end foldable 5G smartphone at the mobile show.
In a morning tweet today, Huawei said it will launch a foldable phone at MWC 2019 on February 24. The device details are largely unclear, but the teaser image shared speaks volumes of the innovation.
The Chinese company keynote is scheduled for Sunday, February 24, at 2PM Barcelona time.
In a separate tweet, Huawei helpfully augments that information by promising MWC will see “the world’s first 5G foldable device.” 5G networks are still far from any sort of useful maturity, but the hype around them and 5G phones will be proceeding as planned in 2019. The tweet went on to say: “Stay tuned for a deluge of quirky new form factors and a lot of “5G” stickers as we get closer to the MWC gathering at the end of this month.”
