The Chinese technology giant Huawei has launched its first foldable smartphone at MWC 2019 and now remains a pending question. Was it an “isolated episode” or will the smartphone market and the manufacturer go hand in hand towards this type of device? The answer comes from CEO Richard Yu during an interview released shortly after the P30 and P30 Pro launch event.
According to the manager, within the next two years, half of Huawei- branded smartphones could be made up of folding models. Richard Yu has praised the Mate X, claiming to use it almost always at work precisely because of its nature devoted to multitasking.

Furthermore, the CEO points out that as this technology matures, we will automatically find ourselves dealing with more affordable prices. In short, the Chinese company is very concerned about the issue and it seems that its future will be increasingly focused on foldable devices, which should reach the selling price of the current flagship stores within a couple of years.
Therefore, the Mate X was not an isolated case; obviously things could change based on various factors – first and foremost the response of the public – but it is clear that Huawei has no intention of renouncing to exploit this technology.
