Samsung is priming the channel and those in its mobile solution provider partner program (MSPP) for the new Galaxy Fold and the rollout of several upgraded smartphones that include among the first that support emerging high-speed Wi-Fi 6 and 5G networks. 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.

Much like the Galaxy Fold, Gilsing's concept iPhone X features the main display on the inside.

"The Huawei Mate X will be the first key for consumers to open the door to 5G smart living". As Huawei pointed out, that's thinner than practically every phone out there, and even thinner than Apple's latest iPad Pro.

Argos' head of technology Phil Elford added that as one of its best-selling phone brands, the retailer expects customers to "embrace the great price as well as the breakthrough innovation this new model provides". If you want to take a selfie, you turn the device around and have the cameras point towards you as you use the slightly smaller display.

Finally, unfolding the Mate X results in the AMOLED screen to reveal its true physical dimensions.

What sets the Mate X apart from the Samsung's Galaxy Fold is that the display spans edge to edge when both folded and unfolded, thus creating a more immersive effect. It comes with 5G connectivity, based on Huaweis modem called Baolong 5000, and the company claims it is the fastest 5G smartphone.

We're not sure when we'll be able to go hands-on with the Mate X but it's certainly a giant leap into the mobile future. You get 8GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and all that fantastic foldable tech for all that money. Huawei has included a high-capacity 4500mAh battery and the new 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge charger can charge the battery to 85% in just 30 mins.

The advertisement shows the device unfolding from phone mode into a larger tablet.

The company will also launch a foldable phone with 5G connection in its home turf in May, the world's first phone with a flexible screen and six cameras.

According to Huawei's Richard Yu, Huawei engineers spent the better part of three years working on the Mate X's "Falcon Wing" hinge. Meanwhile, Huawei has found itself stuck in the middle of tensions between the USA and China in the race to roll out 5G networks.

Using Intel's 5G mobile trial platform and Ericsson's software, the two have proved they can run 4G and 5G traffic simultaneously on the same frequency carrier.
