In fact, you can expect similar form-factors to the older models with new features for those products, as foldable will likely end up with something else. Considering the fact that we are presumably dealing with a contemporary Android home screen, this might mean that Samsung's actual foldable smartphone is now a close-to-market device. Fellow Chinese brand Xiaomi uploaded a video of president Lin Bin folding a prototype device last week, while another Chinese rival Royole showcased its foldable smartphone, the FlexPai last month at annual tech show CES. The 5G foldable smartphone is expected to come equipped with the in-house HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC and the Balong 5000 modem.
Express.co.uk will be at the Samsung Unpacked event in London and will bring you all the news live as it happens. At the conference the 5G foldable smartphone will be presented.
Crucially, though, and another reason why we think that the device in this video could very well be the unannounced Samsung folding phone is that the design, despite getting better, remains fundamentally the same. Recently, the device's concept images were also leaked online. Yes, that's the still MIA foldable phone that some even doubt truly exists yet.
Yu has also claimed that the device Huawei announces at the show on February 24 will be the world's first 5G phone with foldable screen. In addition, LG will present their version of a foldable smartphone to a select audience and Oppo will provide some more information on their foldable phone too.
Foldable smartphones are definitely going to be the most innovative trend of 2019.
