Huawei Mate X First Impression: A Different Take on Foldables

Designer Imagines 'Folding iPhone X' in New Concept

With new foldable phones in the market, it will be interesting if the Huawei Mate X has musted enough to overshadow Samsung. While it is possible this could be a fake it appears to be authentic and the timing of the advert installation coincides with the announcement. While the Galaxy Fold folds inwards and features an additional display on the front, the Mate X just has one display and features back-to-back foldable design. Xiaomi have a tri-fold design with the outer edges folding back around on themselves. Interested users can catch all the live updates of Huawei's MWC event by following the details mentioned below.

Kevin Ho, president of the mobile handset division at Huawei, was asked by Metro.co.uk at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona whether or not the impressive 5G-capable phone will be made available in the US.

It's a better implementation of the foldable phone concept.

Huawei Mate X has a triple camera system on one side of the device that is thicker than the rest of it.

The Mate X features an 8-inch screen and when unfolded, it measures just 5.4mm thin So what is it that makes the foldable Mate X so special compared to the competition?

While certain apps and types of content won't necessarily fill the screen - a problem especially for watching video on the device - some games seem as though they'll be modified to support the Galaxy Fold's unique aspect ratio.

The phone-sized panel is exactly what you'd expect: an all-screen front face, with no notch, because there's no need for a front facing camera. Well, that leaked device is very real, it's gorgeous, and it also happens to be Huawei's first 5G smartphone. Huawei said during the presentation that its 5G tech would deliver sub-6G speeds, which in theory will be twice as fast as Qualcomm's chips.

Today at Huawei's press conference at MWC Barcelona, Huawei has something special to share with us. The rear display is 6.4-inch (25:9, 2480 x 892) rear display, when folded. This differs from Samsung's phone that folds outwards like a book and whose smaller display does not form part of the larger when unfolded. The Galaxy Fold will incorporate a 7nm 64-bit octa-core processor, 2GB of LPDDR4 memory, and 512GB of onboard storage. Amazingly, the Huawei Mate X can combine both these 5G frequency bands (on compatible carriers) to get download speeds in excess of 6Gbps. Unfortunately I only got to see the new Mate X from a distance, because the media wasn't allowed to handle the prototypes that Huawei had on hand at the show.
