Huawei Mate V might be the company’s first vertically folding smartphone


Today, Ben Geskin showed off what Huawei’s upcoming Mate V smartphone might look like. The device seems to be a vertically folding clamshell style smartphone.

The smartphone seems to be a beefier version of the the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip with more cameras and a notch on the inside. Ben also mentions that the phone will have more cameras and 3D face recognition. Considering Huawei usually reserves its 3D face recognition tech for the Mate series, the possibility of the inclusion of the feature with the foldable phone is highly likely.

With the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip to be updated next month(to a 5G model) and the Motorola Razr not gaining much traction, Huawei might just be a good option for many users looking for the clamshell experience.

Obviously all these rumors are to be taken with a pinch of salt. What do you think about the Huawei Mate V? Let us know in the comments below.
