Foldables on the way to mainstream

Foldable smartphones are becoming increasingly popular in China as more choices and better prices take them from a niche market to the mainstream.

Huawei released its P50 Pocket phone yesterday with an improved camera and a super-light design — and at prices starting from 8,988 yuan (US$1,400), half that of the brand’s previous foldable models.

The P50 Pocket uses Huawei’s HarmonyOS, which has been adopted for 320 million devices globally, said Richard Yu, chief executive of Huawei’s Consumer Business Unit.

OPPO’s new Find N, the company’s first foldable model, was sold out “within five minutes” on online platforms including JD and TMall.

The model, with 7.1 inch and 5.4-inch dual screens, costs from 7,699 yuan.

Samsung, Huawei, OPPO and Xiaomi have launched foldable smartphones. Apple and Honor are still researching foldables.
