Today we reported on 3D renders of Huawei's upcoming foldable phone, which is set to go head to head with the Samsung Galaxy X.

Huawei was rumored to unveil its foldable phone ahead of Samsung but that did not happen.

As if the "Connecting the Future" tagline wasn't enough confirmation that the flexible smartphone will support 5G networks, a follow-up tweet from the company confirms that MWC will witness the launch of "the world's first 5G foldable device". So let's dive in to see some more details on what teaser depicts.

This device is similar to the Samsung foldable phone concept as the front display is nearly full screen with thinner bezels and you get a larger screen size with the internal flexible display.

The best part is that the upcoming handset is not only a 5G device but will also be a foldable phone.

Huawei's teaser shows what seems to be a bend in the display, hinting at its hyped foldable phone. Huawei's MWC press conference is scheduled for Sunday 24 February at 2pm CET (1pm GMT), so mark that date in your diary, folding phone fans. He also added that everything is going according to the plan and the new smartphone is expected to launch by mid-2019.

The phone will feature Huaweis new Balong 5000 5G modem, which will be hooked up to a Kirin 980 chipset. So be sure to stick around with us as we will be covering it extensively. But we do know that it'll be 5G-ready, as the company announced in late January.
