According to information from DigiTimes, Huawei is currently working on three affordable smartphones with folding screens. Their release is expected by the end of the year.
Badly in the smartphone market at the start of 2021, Huawei plans to relaunch itself by presenting several smartphones with foldable screens this year. It would thus be three models that the Chinese manufacturer would have in its boxes, with the particularity of being offered at rather affordable prices.
According to information from the Taiwanese site DigiTimes, Huawei is preparing to launch not one, not two, but indeed three folding smartphones during the second half of the year. “The Chinese smartphone maker should adopt a more attractive price structure, targeting the entry-level segment to boost demand around foldable screen smartphones”, thus indicates the Taiwanese media.
It must be said that the average price of foldable screen smartphones is still particularly high, two years after the arrival of the first models on the market. At Samsung, it takes between 1,500 and 2,000 euros when Huawei offers its Mate X2, launched last February, at a price of 17,999 yuan, or 2,290 euros.
Smartphones with still unknown characteristics
Huawei has already launched three foldable smartphones on the market, the Huawei Mate X, introduced two years ago, the Mate Xs, unveiled last year, and the Mate X2 presented in February. If the Chinese manufacturer offered, for its first two smartphones, a large foldable screen on the outside of the smartphone, it finally backtracked for its Mate X2 and finally adopted the Samsung approach with a folding screen inside. .
It is not yet clear what the next three folding smartphones of the Chinese firm will consist of. For now, Huawei has not yet unveiled a smartphone with a horizontal fold, unlike Motorola with its Razr or Samsung with its Galaxy Z Flip. We can therefore hope to discover this type of flip smartphone.
Note also that the second half of 2021 promises to be particularly busy announcing folding smartphones. Besides Huawei, Samsung must also step up its pace in this market. The Korean firm is preparing to launch two foldable screen smartphones this summer: the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3.
