However, thanks to Samsung's new Infinity O displays that are already in use on the Galaxy S10 line, the Note 10 should have thinner bezels, thus it could be about the same size as the Note 9 (with its 6.4-inch screen).

Two days after Samsung announced its foldable phone, Huawei launched Mate X, their foldable device.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds are true wireless earbuds and the successor to the older Gear IconX earbuds.

But the new Huawei phone could face availability and production constraints for now as He Gang, head of Huawei's smartphone division, said he anticipates the output of the Mate X phones will be around 100,000 units per month, according to separate NetEase report. Galaxy Fold and Mate X 5G come with 12GB and 8GB RAM, respectively.

With the introduction of true foldable smartphones at the MWC Barcelona, South Korean giant Samsung and Chinese technology player Huawei have revolutionised the future of handheld devices.

Last Thursday (Feb.21st), Samsung revealed its highly anticipated Galaxy Fold device, which has a screen that folds in half and costs $1,980 (£1,513).

The phone, which is yet to be held by anyone except a Samsung executive, is due to go on sale in the United Kingdom on May 3.

He further said: "Should you (India) initiate any reaction first, you would never be able to surprise us we will surprise you". Tellingly, Trump's statements on the situation came in the presence of Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, just before their talks.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds will be available directly from Samsung, and they should also be available from all of the major wireless carriers and electronics retailers. At occasions, they burst into excited applause.

Samsung unveiled its new foldable phone during a recent event, and now the company has released a video that offers a deeper look into the tech device.

In the USA and the United Kingdom, the Samsung Galaxy Buds will go on sale March 8, the same day the new Galaxy S10 phones go on sale.

Samsung said it expects to launch the Galaxy Fold on April 26. Huawei did not give a date but.

And that bookish form factor makes more sense than Huawei's futuristic design.

Qualcomm said its 5G modem can achieve a peak theoretical download speed of 5Gbps, compared with 4G smartphones that can reach slightly over 1Gbps on 4G networks. Last month, United States prosecutors revealed criminal charges against the company, alleging that Huawei stole trade secrets and worked to skirt USA sanctions on Iran.

According to some market experts, Samsung outshone the Chinese rival, at least in terms of technology, in their latest face-off.
