Huawei is in news for some time, all due to the trade-ban imposed by the US. Once again the company is making waves but this time it’s for the new generation foldable phone.

It’s reported that Huawei is working on a foldable phone taking some cue from Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. The company filed a design patent back in July 2018 with WIPO Global Design Database. The patent contains similar design like Huawei X mate albeit with a major change. Unlike the Mate X which folds outwards the design in the recently discovered patent reveals that the new phone folds inwards. This will be on the same line as the Samsung much-anticipated Galaxy Fold phone. Samsung, however, has messed up a couple of things with the phone.

Inward folding is more user-friendly than outwards as it can avoid all the kind of damages to screen, and makes it more durable.

There is also a second front screen seen in the patent drawings which makes it looks more similar to Galaxy fold.

The patent was filed in July last year, which hints that Huawei was apparently planning to launch the foldable smartphone before Samsung’s Galaxy fold. The reasons behind the delay are unknown though.

Huawei foldable phone could be the successor of X Mate but nothing is confirmed as of now. The patent shows that the new phone features a sidebar, just like X Mate. The camera contains multiple lenses and sits on the side which means the camera plays a dual role by acting as both front and rear camera. Users can switch as per their needs, something similar to X Mate. The sidebar helps in giving a full-screen display without a notch.

The filed patent reveals a lot more details about the design aspects of Huawei’s new foldable phone. The new device will have a metal housing and is expected to be thin. The corners would be curvier than the existing one. The buttons are also placed in a different manner compared to the X Mate model. One button is placed on the right side of the phone which is just below the SIM compartment.

What is even more fascinating is the missing charging port in these sketches. Possibly the device would offer only wireless charging system or the company could add that when it actually start working on the phone.

Huawei has already postponed the X Mate launch as the company is taking a cautious approach after Samsung’s debacle related to Galaxy Fold. Introduced in April, the launch of Samsung Galaxy Fold has been delayed due to some technical issues that surfaced after multiple complained by the initial reviewers. However, Huawei’s decision to postponed the launch of X Mate may be due to the recent ban on the company which has resulted in losing Andoird OS license. Although, the company is reportedly working on its own OS it’s going to be an uphill battle for the Chinese smartphone giants to compete with well established Android.

This new patented device launch date is still unknown, but if the phone becomes a reality then surely its design will be a trendsetter in the foldable phone market. The design of Huawei’s new foldable phone appears to be not only better than that of X Mate but also of Samsung Galaxy Fold as well.
