Huawei plans to launch gaming and foldable phones this year, President Jim Xu reveals


Razer, the America gaming Peripherals and PCs maker,  back in 2017 explored the potentials for gaming smartphones. Xiaomi hopped in on it with the blackshark, then followed closely by ASUS, and it appears more OEMs are showing the willingness to explore this cool niche.

As part of its roadmap plans for the H2 of 2018, Huawei’s Consumer Business President Jim Xu in an interview recently is reported to have confirmed its company is working on a gaming-centric Android phone tipped to arrive later this year. And while also breaking the news that its first foldable smartphone will arrive sometime in 2019, Jim XU, however, stated in clear terms its company has no plans of making smartphones with moving mechanical parts similar to the Oppo Find X or vivo NEX series.

Though Jim Xu has not revealed further details including the exact launch date, there are possibilities the device might be showcased at the IFA in Sept or could be deferred till the last month of the year. And as GSMarena put it, there is a good chance Huawei’s first gaming-focused phone could come with the Snapdragon 845 SoC as well as Huawei’s GPU Turbo technology which debuted with the Honor Play and is now gradually rolling out to a couple of its smartphones.

IFA Conference is still about two months away, so there are chances we might get to hear more from Huawei about its Gaming phone.
