A photo appeared on Twitter revealing the work installing a display banner containing Huawei’s device with a foldable display. There are a couple of workers and some scaffolding blocking the poster but we can pretty much make out everything on it.

The banner shows a foldable phone opened and then halfway closed before showing it totally folded. The banner also contain a statement that reads: “World’s first foldable 5G phone”. And definitely, the banner also contains the name of the phone which is Huawei Mate X.
The design is different from Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. The hinge separating between two screens and helping the tablet to be converted in phone mode has various interlocking gears, but these gears are not visible. On the other hand, Huawei Mate X has a single display that wraps around the exterior of the phone. When closed, we can only use a section of the folded display.
Samsung and Huawei are not only the companies that are showing on a foldable phone. Other tech giants like Xiaomi, LG, and Lenovo are also working on foldable devices but Samsung is the pioneer and will definitely make it available to more people in less time.
