In fact, Huawei CEO Richard Yu says that the device could end up replacing your Windows 10 desktop or notebook computer thanks to its versatility.

It comes after the head of Samsung's mobile division earlier this month said that details of its foldable smartphone would be released sometime this year. The answer would be surely answered within the coming years. He also mentioned that the foldable smartphones will also be able to replace computers.

While we don't know much about Huawei's folding phone efforts, there's been plenty of speculation about the Galaxy F. Now, the company has confirmed that it will launch a new foldable smartphone within a year.

Hurricane Florence still a threat despite downgrade
The wide storm weakened to a Category 3 hurricane Wednesday and forecasters expect it to weaken further as it nears the shore. A state of emergency has also been declared in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington.

This simply means that Huawei will project its foldable smartphone as a replacement to the desktops and laptops.

"We will change that", he reportedly said. While Samsung is expected to launch the first consumer-grade foldable phone, the two rivals are likely to display radically different smartphones. According to the expert, tech companies are using foldable display technology to highlight their innovative capabilities without "really considering the nuts and bolts that would make it a commercial success". "It is conceivable that a display can be folded out". 5G will play a vital role in the evolution of smartphones, and it will be "fun" for users, he said. "And with artificial intelligence it gets even smarter".

Huawei's latest claim also shows that it is eager to launch a foldable smartphone before Samsung.
