Yufei.com, December 19th, this year is not only the first year of 5G, but also the first year of folding screen mobile phones. Many mobile phone manufacturers have come up with their own folding screen mobile phones, such as Huawei’s Mate X.
Yesterday, French media reported that Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business department, announced the news of Huawei’s next-generation folding screen mobile phone in an interview with French media.
The patent shows that the folding method of Huawei’s new folding screen mobile phone is similar to flipping a book – when it is in the folded state, the entire mobile phone is more like a Xiaomi MIX Alpha; when the screen needs to be unfolded, first unfold the screen folded on the outermost side, just like flipping through a book. Just like a book, unfold the screen folded on the inside and combine it with the front screen to become a tablet.
To put it simply, Huawei’s patent is more like a screen wrapped around the fuselage. When it needs to be unfolded, it only needs to turn up the screen “hidden” on the back of the fuselage; when it is not unfolded, it can also be used as a screen. Dual screen phone. However, from the perspective of the patent, there is a certain thickness difference between the unfolded screen and the fuselage. Visually, the screen seems to have a feeling of being easily broken.
The upcoming foldable phone is called the Huawei Mate Xs. Compared to the Mate X, the Mate Xs will focus more on the sturdiness and durability of its hinge, Display and processor. There is no doubt that this folding screen phone will be equipped with Kirin 990 5G SoC.
In addition, Yu Chengdong also said that Huawei’s foldable phone will be sold in Europe. However, he did not say whether it was the Mate X or the Mate Xs. Earlier, Huawei executive He Gang revealed that Huawei is developing the Mate Xs, which will be powered by the Kirin 990 5G processor.
It is worth mentioning that Yu Chengdong also said that he “hopes to have a thinner and lighter model than what is currently on the market”. From this point of view, Huawei’s folding screen phone may be thinner and lighter.
However, this patent is more technically difficult than the previous folding screen mobile phone, because this folding method involves two hinge connections. At present, the hinge technology and screen technology of folding screen mobile phones are not mature. If the technology is mature in the future, I believe that it will not be difficult to make such a mobile phone.
