While Samsung seemed to be leading the game, Chinese manufacturer Huawei could now pip everyone to the post by releasing the first foldable smartphone before the end of 2018, according to ETnews. The South Korean website evokes a smartphone with a display that can fold inwards on itself. However, in reality, no information has yet transpired about this mysterious handset, which is, nevertheless, likely to debut in Huawei's home market. In order to beat Samsung at its own game, Huawei has reportedly sourced bendy OLED screens from rival South Korean tech firm, LG.

Until now, Samsung has been blazing the trail for foldable smartphones, showcasing various forms of folding and flexing display prototypes since 2011. Moreover, the firm is rumoured to have discreetly presented several prototype handsets with foldable screens to a privileged few at CES 2018 in January. Production and sale, under the name Galaxy X, could be on the cards for late 2018 or early 2019.

By using foldable screens, smartphone-makers notably hope to double display size for consumers while maintaining pocket-sized form factors.
Watch out for various potential models -- whether experimental prototypes or finished models -- from Huawei, Samsung and more at the Las Vegas consumer technology show, CES, in January 2019.
