Previously, we reported that Xiaomi could be working on a Razr-styled, foldable phone after the company recently patented a smartphone design which shows a close resemblance to the newly announced Motorola Razr.
However, it seems like Xiaomi isn’t alone. Apparently, Huawei may also have an envision to develop their own Razr-inspired foldable phone, which will feature a significantly different language from their current Mate X foldable phone.
The design Huawei have in mind could be seen from their patent diagrams above. Similar to the Motorola Razr, this device will fold vertically, rather than horizontally as in the case of the Mate X.
When the device is fully unfolded, we could see a minimalist display which has thin bezels along the four sides. However, there wasn’t any visible selfie camera on the unfolded front-panel which suggests that Huawei could possibly be deploying some form of under-screen selfie camera which conceals it from the public eyes.
On the exterior, we could see a capsule-shaped camera module which houses 3 camera sensors as well as a LED flash. When the device is folded, it seems to sport a small rectangular-shaped “secondary display” as seen from the second image above.
Definitely, its interesting to see more of such unique and fresh foldable smartphones in the market. In the Chinese market, foldable smartphones are gaining popularity as seen in the case of the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X.
