Huawei made a 'working' foldable phone that might launch next year”

"That's not good", says Yu, "and we should get rid of that gap".

Next is Mirror mode which allows users to mirror the same content on both the screens when folded with both screens in different directions.

ZTE (one of Huawei's domestic and international rivals) already unveiled a foldable smartphone - the Axon M, which will be released via AT&T in the coming months.

It turns out that Samsung and LG aren't the only companies currently working on foldable smartphones, and ZTE's Axon M may not be alone in the space for long. But, if the company manages to solve all current issues, the device could very well be at the forefront of smartphone innovation in the immediate future. The device still needs improvements related to mechanical design, however, plus "better, more flexible screen technology" in order to become a product that's ready to hit the market.

Large screens that stretch from edge to edge have been one of the biggest smartphone changes this year but 2018 could be quite interesting as foldable smartphone rumors continue to surface.

Apart from that, Richard Yu also stated that Huawei has plans to expand to the US. And no, we are not talking about the Axon M kind of foldable phones. The device is the company's first dual display smartphone. It will also be available in China, Europe and Japan soon.

However, Huawei plans to eventually launch the phone with a single foldable screen. The company has in the recent past made it clear that they want to be the top manufacturers barring none.

This week, ZTE showed off a handset with dual displays, folding up to look like a regular handset, but also capable of expanding itself and combining the screens to form one cohesive display.

At the launch event for the Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, and Mate 10 Porsche Design, Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, revealed an interesting tidbit in an interview with CNET.
