Huawei's foldable phone specs and release get detailed, screen is larger than Samsung's

Just as it was rumored before, the bendable display panel itself is to be provided by BOE, the same folks who made the curved OLED panel of the Mate 20 Pro. Huawei has already pitched the device to Korean carriers, reports local media today, and an insider commented that it wasn't a prototype or a proof of concept device:
Why Korea first? Well, Huawei is planning to launch its first foldable phone as a 5G-capable device, and only Korea will have a wide 5G network up and running in the first half of 2019, when Huawei is said to release its Gumby handset. The company is most likely going to announce the handset at the MWC expo in March, and then push it out in the April-June period after extensive testing on the 5G network.
Mum's the word on pricing yet, but the screen sizes are tipped to be 5" for the external display when the phone is in a folded state and 8" when the internal display is pushed open. These diagonals are larger than Samsung's listed 4.6" and 7.3", respectively, and this is why, kids, it's important to have competition.

You can’t seriously expect company who basically buys every single device part and then assembles them to one up Samsung.

Go big or go home, huh Huawei? I’m loving the completion that’s created between Android vendors! It spurs innovation, which is what’s needed in the smartphone space. Looking forward to seeing what Huawei’s foldable smartphone is all about.

I love how exagerated those concept phones are, remember the "dual Snapdragons 830 CPU, 12Gb Ram and 60Mp câmera" from Turing? Look at those bezels, we are Years behind the tech needed to do those super ultra thin bezels on the forehead and/or chins of the phones, is this concept was real, this phone would cost a small fortune to be produced...
