We're about to witness an exciting year in the history of the smartphone, as 2019 will bring us not only the first commercial foldable phones but also the first 5G devices, as carriers around the world will turn on their 5G networks. One of the company's representatives, Ken Hu, unveiled new information about the device this week. But it seems that there will be some waiting for market availability.

Hu also said that the phone will arrive in the middle of 2019. This will be a little ahead of previous schedule since previously Huawei had said that it would launch its first foldable phone in the second half of 2019. Now the company is looking to beat Samsung and become the top smartphone maker in the world.

Honor's 5G-ready phone could be the Honor Magic 2 since the yet-to-be-launched phone packs a Kirin 980, which is Huawei's latest and greatest mobile processor, equipped with technology to support 5G connectivity. Although it's not known whether Samsung foldable device will possess the power of 5G. "This is the first time to introduce foldable screens on a smartphone", added Hu. This is because the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro will officially launch in October this year, and Huawei has confirmed its first 5G phone will be coming in 2019. Huawei could announce the phone much earlier than that, to continue its attack on Samsung.

Cristiano Ronaldo "finding he doesn't have Madrid protection"
When Valencia defender Jeison Murillo tried to block CR7, Ronaldo gave him a slight push due to which Murillo fell down.

Earlier, it was reported that Huawei might launch its first foldable smartphone in November this year in order to give competition to Samsung.

Putting 5G connectivity into a folding phone makes sense to us: 5G handsets are likely to require more cooling than their predecessors and they'll also benefit from larger batteries because the faster speeds will enable (and no doubt encourage) people to use their phones for more battery-intensive tasks.
