Huawei sold 206 million smartphones in 2018
But Samsung introduced the Galaxy Fold earlier
Chinese technology tries to keep cutting the gap with South Korea and Apple.
Innovation is one of the factors that most distinguish brands in the smartphone world and, after the euphoria of multi-cameras and screens without bevels, everything indicates that folding or folding devices are the next step, and Huawei It is among the brands that want to get there first.
The goal, is the same as always, try to conquer and conquer the consumer looking to conquer your preferences when you buy a new smartphone.
Everyone wants to earn a larger share in a market with a higher value than those in 487 billion dollars annually at global level, according to the data projected in Statesman.
Huawei does not want to give
Chinese technology tries to keep growing in terms of smartphone sales, while trying not to give in to the strong US-led campaign to discredit its brand in the 5G technology market.
In this context, the strengthening of the product division, in particular of smartphones, is fundamental and, upon presentation of the P30 to be held in Paris, next March 26, now the debut of his folding device is added.
It is about Mate X that apparently will be presented in the Mobile World Congress 2019, to be held in the city of Barcelona between 25 and 28 February.
This is because the image of an advertisement that is prepared for the MWC in which the smartphone is promoted has been broadcast on social networks in China.
The billboard has already allowed some specialists to find differences with the Galaxy Fold, presented by Samsung this week, also with the folding Xiaomi.
It is a smartphone with a very clean design and stylized lines, with a single fold, similar to the Royole Plexpai we met at CES 2019.
Everything seems to be a loss but, given the habit that has begun to see in Huawei, it would not be surprising that it is to attract attention and generate expectations for its presentation at MWC 2019, scheduled for February 24th.
Only a few days ago Samsung presented the Galaxy Food, its folding smartphone and, in fact, together with the event the Chinese brand has published several content on Twitter through its global accounts, from Colombia and Mexico with which it has trolled South Korea alluding that it is more innovative.

Is the estate the next trend?
We have said that this is based on the fact that there is almost no brand that does not work or that has even presented its foldable smartphone.
In addition to the Galaxy Fold this week, we have already been able to know a bit about the proposal of Xiaomi and Royole FlexPai, but they are not the only ones, it is known that LG works in one and, even if with its differences, also Moto Razr, by Motorola.
Also, this week a study showed how the patent for the iPhone folding smartphone might appear.
So, for Huawei it is important to have an impact with Mate X, although during 2018 it sold 206 million phones (14.89%), according to data from Canalys, managing to stick to Apple (212.1 million iPhone) and cut the distance with Samsung (293.7 million), this was achieved by being innovative and anticipating its rivals.
