The head of Huawei Richard Yu in an interview with the German edition of Die Welt said that Huawei is already working on a smartphone-clamshell. According to the representative of the company, the device will make its debut within a year.
Richard Yu during a conversation with journalist Die Welt noted that people still work for computers because of the screen size. The folding smartphone should partially solve this problem: in the opened position, the display will turn out to be quite large.
Other manufacturers have previously announced work on folding phones. For a long time Samsung is working on such a device: the presentation is expected in November.
Analyst Ben Stanton of the research company Canalys is confident that smartphone clamshells will soon appear in the industry.
