As per a report by ETNews, Huawei has recently signed an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) with certain domestic and international smartphone part makers that are currently involved in creating technology required for foldable smartphones.
A report suggests the Chinese smartphone giant has tied up with LG Electronics to develop a handset that is said to fold inwards giving it a more compact form factor. To be fair, ZTE did launch the Axon M foldable smartphone late last year, but that featured two different displays with a hinge in between.
Huawei said, “We felt strongly that we would reverse the market dominance with the release of the foldable smartphone, which is more complete than [the one from] Samsung Electronics.”
Huawei is expected to source LED panels from LG Display for its upcoming project. This could be because LG Display recently announced that it would have a foldable display ready for production by 2019.
