Huawei could be planning for another foldable smartphone this year. According to the latest information by a Weibo tipster, the company may introduce its new folding phone by the end of 2021. Although, this device may still be a 4G handset just like the recently launched P50 devices.

Currently, we have not encountered any other details about this device such as the specifications or the design scheme. Also, Huawei has not yet officially confirmed such a device’s existence.

Back in February, Huawei launched the second generation foldable phone – Mate X2 foldable. This phone comes with a brand new design that is different from the first-gen foldable phone. The reason being chip shortage and the US sanctions, which forced the Chinese phone maker to delay its flagship lineups of this year.

However, the company somehow managed to introduce the P50 phones on July 29. After the release, these smartphones have impressed the users in several ways such as the high-end camera capabilities and an attractive design, although the 5G is missing.

Moving on, the Chinese tech giant usually uncovers its Mate-series phones in the second half of the year. But as we know, things have changed a bit this year. As per the recent report, the Mate 50 series might come at the end of the second quarter in 2022, which could bring 5G back to Huawei flagship phones.

This piece of information about the new foldable smartphone has come as a surprise and if there is such a thing in development with Huawei, we will surely receive more such leaks about it in the future. We’ll keep you updated as soon as something new comes up.
