Samsung Galaxy Fold more advanced than Huawei's Mate X

Huawei unveils Mate X folding phone to rival Samsung Galaxy Fold

Huawei's Mate X dropped with gusto at Mobile World Congress 2019, and with a price tag that makes Samsung's Galaxy Fold look nearly affordable. Thinking about it, the approach by Huawei seems to be more idealistic in terms of ease and usability.

Huawei consumer devices chief Richard Yu acknowledged the Mate X was "very expensive" and said it would take at least two years for foldable prices to descend to the level of other phones.

Despite Samsung positioning the device as "super-premium", some may say they have already been superceded by the Huawei Mate X as the best folding phone.

No surprise then that Oppo is letting itself into the foldable phone party. We are seeing a lot of progress.

Unveiling something a bit different, LG also exhibited the G8 ThinQ, with a front-facing camera called the "Z Camera" which can be controlled without users needing to touch the screen.

"To remind you, the Huawei Mate X has a large 8" screen with a 2480 x 2200 resolution and an 8:7.1 aspect ratio when unfolded with a pretty thin bezel.

The four-day MWC2019 opened its doors on Monday and is expected to attract 110,000 visitors from 200 countries, in which around 2,400 companies will be exhibiting their products.

However, I believe there's also a change that Samsung rolls out a 5G version of the Note 10 as well, so while a quad-camera system would indeed be offered, it may only be available on this particular model.

The Mate X battery is 4,500mAh and supports 55W Huawei SuperCharge, which promises an 85 percent charge in just 30 minutes and there are two separate batteries on either side of the fold, alike the Galaxy Fold. It's the same form factor as the Huawei Mate X. Huawei's three displays measure 6.6 inches, 6.4 inches and 8 inches (when unfolded).

At the "5G is On" industry insights, Huawei demonstrated the 4K video-on-demand service on its new 5G foldable smartphone via a Vodafone Spain 5G live network powered by the firm. The flip side is 6.38 inches, which allows space for the camera bar.

"Since colorless polyimide, a flexible film used for a foldable smartphone screen, is not as hard as a smartphone screen made of a glass panel, an outward-folding device is more exposed to scratches than in-folding ones", a market watcher said. It's stiff in a high-quality, reassuring way that dissuades you from absentmindedly opening and closing the screen.

Unfortunately, guests at the pre-MWC event were not allowed to handle the device on show, which makes estimations of its actual performance and usability hard at this point. the Mate X will reportedly cost US$2.600 at it's launch, and become available by the second half of 2019.
