Huawei CEO calls the Samsung Galaxy Fold’s design bad


Huawei and Samsung are by all standards the best Android smartphone makers in the market. The tech giants believe in progression with leaps and bounds. And, that is something that we can see with the foldable displays on the Huawei’s Mate X and Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. Though the technology on both the phone is identical, both the companies follow the different implementations.

Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s mobile business, reveals to Business Insider some interesting facts. Accordingly, Huawei was simultaneously working on three different foldable phones. Well, one of the designs was similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold and was somehow “even better than that”, in Yu’s words. However, he personally killed its development, because “it was bad”.

You went on to say: “I feel having two screens, a front screen and a back screen, makes the phone too heavy”, speaking about the Galaxy Fold.

Anyways, we still don’t know which design is better than the other. Also, we are still figuring out the more potential usage of switching to Foldable. But, the thing we are sure of is the €2,000 price tag on Galaxy Fold and €2,299 on the Huawei Mate X. The future is here, but the coming one is even better and cheaper when the foldable display technology will reach its Acme.
