iF Design awards for foldable phones

Both Huawei P50 Pocket and Mate Xs 2 were recognized as the best foldable phone design for the 2023 awards.

Huawei P50 Pocket Series is a foldable phone that features the most seamless and airtight vertical fold ever seen on a device. The next-generation waterdrop-shaped Multi-Dimensional Hinge uses Huawei’s exclusive Multi-Dimensional Lifting mechanism, and the hidden open-and-shut design on both sides of the hinge seals off the screen to prevent foreign objects from infiltrating and damaging it.

Huawei Mate Xs 2 is the world’s lightest foldable phone with a 255g body. The 5.4 mm unfolding thickness is only half of the thickness of conventional smartphones. A pioneering Double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge ensures the product’s ultra-flat experience. Coupled with the first adaptive UI engine, the product makes the ecological application perfectly presented on its large screen.

Smartwatch and earphone

The recently released Huawei FreeBuds 5 and Watch Buds also made it into the innovative design list for best earphones and smartwatches.

Huawei FreeBuds 5 innovates the inner structure layout by distributing speakers in the head unit and the battery under the head unit. With a fully curved shape design, it can keep a comfortable wearing experience after long use.

Huawei Watch Buds is a new product that combines a smartwatch with earbuds. The earbuds are attached to the back of the watch dial plate with built-in magnets, so users won’t need to carry two independent devices on the go.

These are Huawei MateBook X Pro, Singal Coverage Map, AppGallery Connect, Celia Call, Huawei SmartKey, Petal Vivid, Huawei AirEngine, Petal Maps app for cars, FTTR solutions, IdeaHub S2, LampSite 5 series, and BeiDou Satellite messaging feature.
