While several smartphone makers have already launched their foldable smartphones in the market, however, the foldable handset market is still not within the reach of an average consumer. This is because foldable smartphones are available at a very expensive price range, sometimes more expensive than some premium phones. But now, Huawei seems to be working on to bridge this gap by launching an affordable foldable smartphone later this year.
According to Ross Young, the CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, Huawei will release an affordable foldable phone alongside its flagship Mate 40 series this fall. Young revealed this information during an interview on YouTube. He mentioned that the Chinese tech giant is working on an inward bending smartphone, which is different from Huawei’s two previously released foldable phones, the Mate X and Mate Xs.
Young said that he “expects to see Huawei pursue both a clamshell and an in-folding model, and we think they’re struggling to come up with an ultra-thin glass solution right now for the clamshell. But we do expect them to do an in-folding model later this year and be pretty aggressively priced.”
According to some reports, Huawei has already placed a large order of 500,000 units for this upcoming foldable smartphone, which is going to be “aggressively priced.” Young claimed that we can expect to see this product launch sometime in September or October 2020. Still, we don’t have any official confirmation on Huawei on this matter.
