Huawei Mate V Foldable Flip Phone Debuts in December and Gets New Renders

Huawei is said to be hosting a big event in December, where it’s going to launch at least 3 big products. One of them is an E-Ink tablet, the other a Huawei Watch D blood pressure watch and a third one is the star of the show, Huawei Mate V, a foldable flip phone. It has just leaked in renders.

We have two versions of the device here, both without selfie cameras in punch holes in the screen. One has a vertical triple back camera in a line and the other a more discrete dual back camera. Huawei is said to be bringing a simpler hinge mechanism, which is less prone to breakage and also makes the device less expensive. The handset is more similar to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 rather than the MOTO RAZR for example.

The hinge has been reportedly developed by a Chinese OEM dubbed Zhaoli technology. We’re expecting a large external screen, perhaps larger than the Z Flip models. This clamshell is said to be powered by the Kirin 9000 processor, limited to the 4G LTE connectivity only. In Europe the company will switch to a Snapdragon 888 processor and the screen that folds down the middle is said to have a 6.7 inch diagonal.

Mimicking the Samsung approach, the Mate V will be available in a variety of colors, targeting the young audience. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is already pretty cheap, going below $1000 in some areas. Huawei would have to crack the $899 mark.
