  • Huawei just launched its Mate 40 series smartphones.
  • Huawei's next phone could be a foldable flip phone.
  • Huawei's rumoured foldable phone is similar to Galaxy Z Flip.

Huawei just launched its Mate 40 series smartphones for the global market. The availability and the price of the new Huawei phones is still not known for the India market. But just to tell you, Huawei Mate 40 series include three new smartphones -the Mate 40, the Mate 40 Pro and the Mate 40 Pro+.

As per some leaks coming in, now Huawei's next phone could be a foldable flip phone similar to Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. First noted by Tiger Mobiles, the new patent reveals that Huawei is planning to include a secondary display on the outside of its clamshell foldable phone. The secondary display on Huawei's rumoured flip phone could be larger in size when compared to Galaxy Z Flip smartphone that was launched early this year.

Tiger Mobiles reported that Huawei published a patent with the Chinese Patent Office aka China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA). The rough sketches that have been leaked of Huawei's foldable phone shows a large display on the outside with two side holes which could be the dual rear cameras.

The frame of the foldable phone holds some buttons which can possibly be the volume rocker and the power button. The rough sketch of the phone when it is not folded doesn't reveal anything. It simply shows that the phone is binded with a hinge. This could mean that the company will either exclude a front-facing camera, or may opt for an under-display camera.

If we do believe the latest leaks, it shows that Huawei is planning to come up with a clamshell foldable flip phone. And from a smartphone maker like Huawei, it doesn't come as a surprise that they want to try their hands on a foldable phone this time. After all companies like Samsung and Motorola have already launched second-gen foldable phones.
