Looks Like Huawei's Folding Phone Will be Unveiled on 24th February

We know Huawei has a foldable phone coming, and that it'll be on show at MWC in Barcelona at the end of the month. What we didn't know was when it would be announced. Ok we assumed it'd be during the company's press conference, but it's nice to get some extra clues that seem to confirm this will be the case:

As you can see the foldy device is there in the teaser/invitation, all but confirming that it will feature in the press conference. Because of course it will. Huawei had already confirmed it was bringing the phone to Barcelona, and you don't hold a press conference unless you're going to show off all the cool shit you've been working on. Plus we already knew the device would be 5G-compatible, and the above teaser suggests that the device won't have an inward-folding screen like Samsung.

The only question is whether this will upstage the impending P30 range. The P20 wasn't at MWC last year, and similarly the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro weren't unveiled at IFA in Berlin. Instead Huawei opted for its own events, ala Apple, Samsung, and the rest. But with everyone else seemingly bringing foldable phones to MWC, Huawei has to show off something.

We'll be covering the press conference and its announcements as they happen, but you will also be able to tune in to a livestream and watch everything unfold for yourself. It''s happening on 24th February at 1pm GMT.
