These are just patents so they may never result in shipping products — and likely won't in 2019 — but it shows just how serious Samsung is about folding devices. That approach could potentially solve one of the design flaws with foldable phones like the Mate X — where to put the phone 's camera.

Huawei, the beleaguered Chinese consumer electronics giant that President Trump put on a US blacklist, just pushed back the launch of its much anticipated Mate X foldable phone from this month to September.

The company said it wants to spend more time putting the device through rigorous testing, one more complication that comes at a time when Huawei is trying to figure out a way forward since the US ban will eventually cut it off from doing business with Google — and, most critically, accessing Google’s Android mobile OS.

Forget The Galaxy Fold, Samsung Is Already Dreaming About Rollable Phones

Forget The Galaxy Fold, Samsung Is Already Dreaming About Rollable Phones We’re a month and a half past the Galaxy Fold’s original launch date, but after Samsung delayed its debut in order to improve its durability, there’s still no concrete info regarding when the company’s bendable phone will actually go on sale.

The Huawei Mate X is the here, and it 's straight outta the future. We've gotten our hands on the hottest device of MWC 2019!

The Huawei Mate X got unveiled at MWC 2019, and it folds the other way to Samsung's device It looks like the hinge goes the same way as the Huawei device, and there's another bump grip It 's not really a foldable phone , but it does kind of look like one, and it doubles as a case you can snap shut.

Nevertheless, even though Huawei has delayed the Mate X it actually appears to still have more foldable handsets up its sleeve. The company was granted a patent on May 31 by the World Intellectual Property Office for a handset design that shows a double-folding screen, allowing the phone to work as both a phone, tablet and a display that can be propped up on a desk.

Reports Dutch tech news blog LetsGoDigital about the newly publicized patent, the design in contrast to the Mate X also shows an alternative Huawei has come up with for the side bar. Additionally, the patent depicts three models of the proposed device.

In the first, a widescreen border housing the camera, sensors, and home button can be seen along the top and bottom of the phone. The second model includes only a top bezel that houses the front camera and relevant sensors, while the third proposed model shows a full-screen design with no edges at all. From front to back, the device is 100% a display surface.

Huawei delays foldable phone launch until September to do extra tests after Samsung's troubles

Huawei delays foldable phone launch until September to do extra tests after Samsung's troubles Huawei says it's looking to launch its roughly $2,600 Mate X foldable phone globally, and will be focusing on markets that are rolling out 5G networks.

The exciting Huawei Mate X foldable phone was originally slated for a June launch, but it has reportedly been delayed until Foldable phones were the hot new thing just a couple of months ago, but While the Galaxy Fold ’s display is kept on the inside when folded , the Mate X ’s display wraps

Based on the patent documentation, it seems that the flexible screen on this phone is held in place by magnets. The device also relies on two hinges, so that when the phone is folded out the hinges provide extra support for the display.

We keep referring to this as a phone, but as mentioned above the patent also describes a “desk-stand” mode with this design. If you fold just one part of the screen, the device can be used as a quasi-laptop, with the user interface adjusting depending on how the device is folded.

Of course, while this new device certainly sounds intriguing, the company has a lot more pressing matters confronting it at the moment. The effects of the US ban are the most serious, especially given that a new report from Bloomberg reveals internal Huawei estimates of as much as a 60% drop in its international phone shipments. That would be a crushing blow for a company that does about half of its smartphone business outside of China — a company that at one point hoped to displace Samsung possibly as soon as this year as the biggest smartphone maker in the world.

Huawei’s foldable phone will ship with Android, despite US ban.
We've had two foldable phone reveals already this year, but you still can't buy either model in stores. Samsung's Galaxy Fold was recalled for repairs after early reviewers discovered that the foldable screen can be rendered useless with relative ease.
