Huawei will unveil world's first 5G foldable smartphone next month

Folding Phone Nobody is quite sure how it will look yet
Russell Knight | 25 January, 2019, 23:57

"The Balong 5000 will open up a whole new world to consumers", said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's Consumer Business Group.

Mr Yu said he expects 2019 to be another banner year for Huawei as 5G begins to be rolled out across the world. Does this mean we'll see multiple 5G smartphones with foldable displays, or was it simply a translation blunder?

The phone will use the Kirin 980 chipset in combination with the Balong 5000 modem.

It's not the first company to reveal a multi-mode 5G modem, as Samsung announced the Exynos Modem 5100 past year. It said it aimed to keep the momentum with the launch next month of a foldable smartphone powered by its new fifth-generation (5G) chipset. Huawei says it can deliver 4.6 Gbps at sub-6 Ghz and 6.5 Gbps over millimeter wave.

At an event in Beijing on Thursday, the Chinese giant said it is the world's first chipset to support both standalone and non-standalone 5G, and can also support.

Huawei's 5G CPE Pro leverages this chip to reach peak speeds of up to 4.8Gbps.

The Chinese company said the Balong 5000 supports smartphones, home broadband devices, vehicle-related devices, and 5G modules. Thanks to the effects of the ongoing US-China trade tensions, and a slowing economy in China, it seems as though the future is going to be less rosy for the company, which made news in recent days for its founder speculating that "mediocre" employees are going to get the ax in light of the challenges ahead.

In other 5G news, LG looks set to release its first 5G smartphone in the United States in the first half of this year through USA carrier Sprint.

The company said that 5G base stations could be deployed in half the time it took to install a 4G base station, as the chip's active antenna units allow for base stations which are 50% smaller, 23% lighter, and consume 21% less power.

However, this is the first time we've had official confirmation from the China-based manufacturer that it will show off the 5G foldable phone, and there's not long to wait, with MWC 2019 running from February 25 - 28. This approach reduces device complexity and improves battery life in theory compared to using two modems.
