ZTE to launch 5G smartphone in early 2019

ZTE Axon M is first of multiple folding phones the maker has planned

Chinese smartphone maker ZTE is pretty much serious about their mobile business in the United States.

Lixin Cheng, the chief executive officer of the company as recently confirmed in an interview with Bloomberg that ZTE is planning to launch a 5G enabled smartphone in the United States at the end of this year or in early 2019. Plans may change based on the availability of fifth-generation networks and the supply of the necessary chipsets. Cheng said it would be a smartphone, but also noted that a 5G tablet or wireless-internet hub for homes were possibilities, too.

AT&T Inc. said earlier this month that it plans 5G phone service in about a dozen cities this year, without naming any specifically. ZTE calls this a folding phone, though it doesn't quite meet the folding definition - it has two displays, not one flexible folding display, which is the primary goal for some phone makers. Huawei Technologies Co., which was labeled a cyberspying threat by a USA congressional committee in 2012, planned to announce its first US carrier deal this week with AT&T, but the deal crumbled close to the announcement.

Test Drive Elite Dangerous: Beyond on January 25th
Here's what you can expect from Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter One (the beta will offer access to all the chapter's content). Commanders will share their adventures - and rewards - with allies while working together to overcome unsafe obstacles.

According to data compiled from Bloomberg Intelligence, ZTE isn't a significant player in the global market, with just 2.1 percent market share in the third quarter.

Samsung brought the flexible folding phone concept to the public's attention years ago, and we've seen various flexible panels from the company (and others) since.

ZTE launched Axon M past year, which was technically a foldable smartphone, but not the kind we all were dreaming of.
