Huawei is reportedly planning to reveal a new clamshell foldable smartphone on December 23rd, according to a Weibo tipster.
The rumoured Mate V foldable handset will lead the upcoming event, but Huawei says it will also reveal new TVs, laptops and a new smart band.
According to previous leaks and patent filings, the Mate V Flip will sport a new hinge design and feature a unique heat pipe designed for the foldable. It’s unclear if this foldable smartphone, in particular, will feature the flexible heat pipe.
Huawei likely aims for the Mate V to be a direct competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3.
That said, without access to Google’s Play Store, it’s unlikely we’ll see the Mate V release in Canada.
