Huawei launches 5G foldable phones

Huawei Technologies sold more than 10 million 5G smartphones in January, after selling 240 million units in 2019, making it the world’s second-largest smartphone vendor, the company said.

Huawei also launched its latest foldable screen Mate Xs as it entered the foldable device segment.

“Huawei Mate Xs is raising the bar further with even more powerful connectivity (on 5G) and integrated user experiences,” Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, said at a conference in Barcelona on Monday.

The Mate Xs, featuring Kirin 990 5G processor, improved camera and a foldable screen user experience in both smartphone and tablet modes, will start sales in March with prices from 2,499 euros (US$2,712).

Among major vendors, only Huawei and Samsung offer foldable screen smartphones.

In 2019, Huawei’s smartphone sales surpassed 240 million units, securing its position as the world’s second-largest handset manufacturer behind Samsung. The PC and wireless audio product businesses both grew by more than 200 percent and wearables saw growth of 170 percent.

Huawei also launched 5G-featured products, including a flagship 5G tablet and a Huawei Mobile Services-based app marketplace at the conference.
