For its foldable phone, Huawei has struck a deal with BOE instead of market leaders like Samsung Display and LG Display. The first of these focuses on battery life and the nightmare that is running out of juice while away from home. This shows us that Samsung is all geared to proceed in the innovation direction, exiting the safe-guarding train. New information reveals that the first batch of foldable phone by Huawei will include small number of units in a bid to beat Samsung.

Samsung is expected to unveil the smartphone on August 9, but it could take a couple of weeks to be generally available, so those who don't buy it might be waiting until mid-September to get access to the Android version of Fortnite.

Looks like we will know when the smartphone is officially launched. Well, rumour has it that the company has incorporated 4,000mAh battery, 700mAh (21-per cent) more than its predecessor, which will be enough to last a one and half day under mixed usage.

There will also reportedly be other rewards thrown in for good measure.

Depending on the region of sale, Galaxy Note9 will be offered in two chipset variants. The site also reports that the phone will have a vapor chamber heat pipe to deal with the sort of cooling issues that come along with long gaming sessions. It would seem that Samsung might've had something to do with it.

The launch date depends on the development of the technology and the durability of the foldable panels, the report notes.

Samsung will begin sales of its Galaxy Watch smartwatch on August 24 together with the Galaxy Note 9, ZDNet Korea reports.

Huawei better hurry it up if these analyst reckons are true, because Samsung is now expected to launch the Galaxy X during the second week of January at CES in Las Vegas.
