A few days ago Huawei introduced its new line of terminals in the Mate family. We talk about the Huawei Mate 10, Huawei Mate 10 Pro and the Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Edition. A series of phablets that stand out for their performance and attractive design. But the manufacturer is not going to sleep on his laurels. It shows that the same CEO of the company has stated that they are working on a flexible display phone.

Richard Yu confirmed to Cnet that Huawei really has a real prototype of his next flexible display phone. The problem is that it needs a series of improvements related to the mechanical design. In addition to the necessity of a better technology and more flexible for the screen so they still cannot launch to the market a telephone of these characteristics. But we’ll probably see it in 2018.

Huawei has a flexible display phone but is not yet functional

ZTE has been the first manufacturer to launch a phone with these features. We talked about the ZTE Axon M, a phone we had the opportunity to try and we were surprised by its system consisting of two screens that come together to create a single panel of 6.75 inches. The problem is that there is a large gap in the middle of both screens that make the user experience is not perfect.

And the same CEO of Huawei is the one who has confirmed that the phone with a flexible screen of Huawei mounts two screens with a small space between them and according to Richar Yu, you have to eliminate that void to be able to launch the phone to the market.

This is the main reason why Huawei wants to wait to be able to launch a phone with a really functional flexible display. We knew that other manufacturers, such as Samsung with its expected Samsung Galaxy X expected to see the light in the latest Mobile World Congress, are working to launch a folding screen phone. But no one expected Huawei was also interested in launching a smartphone with a flexible display.

Flexible memories are here, key piece in folding mobiles

For now, we do not know more details of the new phone with a foldable screen of Huawei. So we will have to wait for the brand to give us more information. But the idea that another manufacturer is on the run to launch their own device with a flexible display is excellent news for the sector.
