Foldable smartphones are becoming "normal" to use as more and more companies roll out their own foldables. Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are selling like hotcakes. And now, it seems that HUAWEI is ready to join the party. HUAWEI has its own foldable by the name of Mate X and Xs, However, the company has no alternative to Samsung's Z Flip 3. According to a new report, HUAWEI's clamshell is in the works.

The smartphone will reportedly feature a new hinge design that will be more durable and better than Samsung's counterpart. The hinge has reportedly been developed by a Chinese OEM called Zhaoli Technology. The hinge is also said to be less expensive than the previous generation hinges seen on previous generation foldables which will reportedly make the HUAWEI smartphone less expensive.
