Huawei Has Finally Join Foldable Phone Race

Huawei has finally join the foldable phone race recent report shows that Samsung was the first company to lunch such phone early this year. The newly announced Samsung Infinix Flex Display arrives with new features such as pixel density, screen size, and aspect ratio in both the folded and unfolded models. It comes with two major screen size, for the tablet and Smartphone display.

Huawei is making a splash at this year's MWC by debuting its own foldable phone that the company says is 5G ready. The Mate X is set to rival Samsung's Galaxy Fold, as the kind of unattainable, expensive, and for the time being, hands-off device that is all about showing off. Huawei's first-generation take on the foldable phone however looks more polished and usable than Samsung's $2,000 offering.

When folded the Huawei Mate X looks like a "normal" phone that has two screens, front and rear. Open it up, and it looks like a razor-thin 8-inch tablet with narrow bezels on three of its sides that begs to be used for watching video and taking full advantage of the larger footprint. Seen in action it makes complete sense a foldable phone should work like this.

As you can see in the image above, the Mate X is packing two screens. A main 6.6-inch display and a secondary 6.4-inch one on the back. When unfolded, the Mate X turns into a 8-inch panel (8:7.1, 2480 x 2200 resolution) that is only 5.4mm thick. Folded the phone measures in at 11mm, which is considerably better than the Fold's 17mm, but is still a tad bigger than current flagships like the iPhone XS (7.7 mm) and Galaxy S10 (7.8 mm).

On the spec sheet side, the Mate X is powered by Huawei's own Kirin 980 SoC, 8GB of RAM and comes with 512GB of internal storage. A 4,500mAh battery and 5G connectivity are standard, the latter provided by a modem developed in-house called Baolong 5000 that the company says is faster than Qualcomm's alternative. The device will also have 55W SuperCharge, with claims that the Mate X can charge up to 85% of its battery in 30 minutes.
