This makes it the first company to officially confirm an event in Barcelona after GSMA canceled MWC 2020.
The company is calling it a virtual press conference because it will screen a pre-recorded keynote at the event in Barcelona, followed by a demo experience on-site.
In addition to this, Gizmochina has learned that Huawei will announce its new Foldable smartphone at the event.
We can confirm that this won’t be the Huawei Mate X foldable phone that was announced last year. So, it’s a brand new foldable model that will be launched and showcased at the event in Barcelona. The company also plans to announce a few other consumer tech products at the same event.
Unfortunately, we are not sure of the identity of the new foldable. It could be the Huawei Mate XS model that was mentioned in 2019. Huawei’s CEO, Richard Yu had confirmed last year that the Mate XS will feature a better processor (Kirin 990 5G), an improved display and an upgraded hinge mechanism. The Mate XS is also expected to feature some changes in its design that’ll make it more compact and durable.
Honor also has an event in Barcelona on the same day at 18:30 CEST. More
