Take a First Look at Huawei’s $2,600 5G Foldable Mate X Phone

Designer Imagines 'Folding iPhone X' in New Concept OnePlus 5G-enabled device to arrive later this year

Billed as the first phone combining foldable technology with a 5G radio, the Huawei Mate X is a stunning foldable premium smartphone.

Unveiled at its Mobile World Congress press conference - well, it had leaked a couple of days before, due to a poster gaffe - Huawei's first folding phone, to us, outsmarts the Samsung Galaxy Fold in its execution.

The program that will be part of the marketing advertisement for the new phones will highlight that a person who shares his or her power with others will one day be able to receive the same favor form a person who is into the promotion of power sharing. And surprisingly to many, the name of that company is. Either that, or purchasing one from Europe or Asia and having it specifically shipped to the US. Samsung's inwards folding design here will be much less prone to scratches, however the Mate X will be a quite more fragile phone in this regard.

The company confirmed the new device would cost 2,299 Euro - higher than Samsung's Galaxy Fold, which has been given a price tag of 1,980 dollars. First of all, it's the giant 8-inch AMOLED screen. With more than 100 components involved in its design, the result is that the Mate X's hinge allows for an ultra-thin design.

On its front, the Mate X features a 6.6-inch display.

Islamic State steps up guerrilla attacks in Syria: SDF
Thousands of people have flooded out of Baghouz over the past week - mostly women and children related to IS militants. Thousands of IS fighters and their families have emerged in the past few months from the group's last enclave.

"It is not just only one phone", said Clement Wong, director for product marketing at Huawei. It can unfold to a completely flat state while on the back of it you would notice a narrow vertical strip that bulges out and gives you something to hold on to and get a firmer grip.

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. Unlike Samsung's Galaxy Fold, the Huawei Mate X becomes a dual screened phone when folded. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the side, doubling as a power button. Amazingly, the Huawei Mate X can combine both these 5G frequency bands (on compatible carriers) to get download speeds in excess of 6Gbps.

Foldable phone fever meets 5G mania in Huawei's latest flagship.

Samsung, which is considered a relatively minor alternative 5G supplier compared with European companies like Ericsson and Nokia for now, said it will leverage its commercially proven 5G leadership to expand its foothold in emerging markets. On the Mate 20 Pro from late 2018, Huawei introduced 40-watt charging speeds, but the Mate X is even quicker with support for charging speeds of 55 watts, almost 40% faster. We're not sure if the phone supports mmWave connectivity. Oppo has not disclosed anything about the device's specs, but their patent reveals a few interesting features. That long we can absolutely wait, no problem. If we make a direct conversion, that comes out to $2600! The phone, in folded condition, is about 11mm thick. The Exynos 9820 or the Snapdragon 855 might not be faster than the A12 bionic found on the iPhone but it is faster than the HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset on the Mate 20 Pro.

Other new hardware includes the Matebook 14, a 14-inch touchscreen laptop equipped which Huawei said can be used for 14 hours without charging for office work. Feel free to sound off in the comments with your impressions.
