Ahead, the report states that Huawei may snatch the crown of ‘king of foldable phones’ from Samsung for the first time – thanks to the Mate X5 and the Pocket 2 vertical flip-flop model. Another major contribution to the Chinese firm’s success is the lack of new products from Samsung.

Moreover, Huawei’s growth will also help the folding device franchise to climb up with a 105% YoY growth rate. Both Huawei and Honor gained a significant share in the foldable market last year with their products and may continue to achieve success.

The Chinese tech giant continues to fill its pocket with enormous achievements and the folding gadget race seems no exception to this theory. For the first time, Huawei is taking the lead over Samsung in the Q1 2024 foldable phone market.

Apart from Huawei and Samsung, the report mentions that OPPO and Vivo might lose their shares due to the unavailability of new products in China. Meanwhile, the Pocket 2 developer could bring at least two more folding devices in 2024. In total, there could be 27 new foldable phones from all brands this year.
