Huawei introduced a folding smartphone that supports 5G

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Chinese technology company Huawei at an online presentation in Barcelona on Monday introduced the folding Mate XS smartphone that supports 5G connectivity.

“The novelty has received an improved user interface thanks to a new flexible display made of innovative polymeric materials and a new hinge, which made it possible to realize a folding case,” the company said in a release.

It is noted that the model supports 5G network. In addition, the device will support “multi-window mode”, allowing you to work simultaneously with two applications.

Huawei exactly one year ago announced a new folding smartphone Mate X with support for 5G technology.

The U.S. administration accuses Huawei of collaborating with the military and intelligence of the PRC and possibly spying on customers.

The United States is urging a number of countries not to use the infrastructure and equipment of Huawei in the transition to the 5G cellular standard.

The Chinese company claims that the allegations are unfounded, politically motivated and violate the principles of market competition.

Last May, the US Department of Commerce put Huawei on the black list, which blocks the company’s path to purchasing components and technologies from US manufacturers. Huawei is also on the list of companies that are prohibited from doing business with American businesses without licenses.

However, since then, the United States has several times granted Huawei deferred sanctions, allowing it to purchase US-made products to maintain networks and update software for existing phones. The last delay was granted on November 18, 2019 for 90 days.
