  • Huawei unveils Mate X folding phone to rival Samsung Galaxy Fold

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. "We'll have less supply (of the Galaxy Fold) than we would of the S10 at launch, and also how it goes to market is really important to us, ' Samsung's Kate Beaumont told the outlet". Accordingly, Huawei are promoting it as the world's "fastest foldable 5G phone". Given it has 5G, which is still yet to officially launch in most geographies, the Mate X seems unlikely to go on sale for several months yet. "As a new breed of smartphones, Huawei Mate X combines 5G, foldable screen, AI and an all-new mode of interfacing to provide consumers with an unprecedented user experience", he said. Android as a platform for "Foldables" like the Huawei Mate X, However, Huawei still has its own EMUI skin here and the extent the Android 'screen continuity' is utilized is not clear yet.

The two screens can help a lot in multitasking, such as browsing the internet on one as the other is on a YouTube video. Before unfolding there is a 6.6 inche front screen with a resolution of 2480 x 1148, and a rear display measuring 6.38 inches with a resolution of 2480 x 892.

The device will be slightly redesigned, it will probably sport different corners or something of the sort, and a curved display will make a comeback.

According to Huawei, the reason was simply a strong demand for its premium smartphones. With a magnanimous 8-inch screen when unfolded and 6.6-inch display upon wrapping the screen around the back. Lastly, the device could be offered in three variants - 8GB RAM with 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM with 512GB storage, and a 12GB RAM with 1TB storage model. The device, described as a phone-tablet hybrid, has been called an "engineering marvel", providing a foldable tablet sized screen that can be carried around in your pocket.

"With this technology, costs are high".

When in the closed position you can shoot photos as you normally would using the large 6.6-inch screen as a viewfinder.

Well, the foldable form factor is distinct and totally new, so it looks like prototypes aren't quite ready to be tested at the conference by the media or public.

Now that the Galaxy S10 is official, Samsung's next big release is the Note 10, which is expected to happen in the summer of this year. Here, it told eager consumers that the phone will be available in mid-2019 and at the cost of a small second-hand vehicle.
