While Samsung is expected to launch its foldable phone at the Galaxy Unpacked event on 20 February, Huawei will be launching its own a few days later.

In a tweet posted on 1 February, Huawei confirmed that it will be launching a foldable phone in Barcelona on 24 February. The teaser image shows a device with a single display that folds backwards, which is a different implementation from Samsung where the 7.3-inch screen can be folded in half to fit in a pocket and there is a display on the "cover" of the device

Huawei also stated during a 5G launch event that its first foldable phone will support 5G connectivity. It is not known at the moment whether Samsung's foldable phone will support 5G connectivity.
