Huawei and Samsung are the two companies that have so far launched foldable smartphones in the market. Now Huawei is working on its upcoming foldable smartphone. Dubbed as Huawei Mate V, the phone is said to fold inwards much like Samsung’s Galaxy Fold.
Earlier Huawei Mate X and the Mate Xs both arrived with fold outwards design. Samsung is also now working on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 which will also be flaunting inward folding design.
A fresh report onLetsGoDigital states that Huawei Technologies filed a trademark at the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) for the brand name Mate V on July 3. The trademark is classified in category 9, and its description includes smartphones, mobile phones, etc.
As of now, it is not confirmed that which product Huawei will use this trademark for. There are speculations that it will likely be a foldable smartphone. Apart from inner folding design, there are reports that this device will use a 120Hz display.
