After Samsung unveiled its foldable device Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei introduced its first ever foldable phone HUAWEI Mate X which the company dubbed as the ‘world’s fastest 5G foldable phone.’
In a report by BGR, the Mate X which was launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 features a 6.6-inch and 6.38-inch dual display panel which transforms into an 8-inch screen tablet when opened.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei CBG, said in a press release: “The HUAWEI Mate X’s revolutionary form factor is achieved by Huawei’s relentless effort in R&D. It represents a voyage into the uncharted. 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. The HUAWEI Mate X will be the first key for consumers to open the door to 5G smart living.”
The foldable phone also features the Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge, a 7nm multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000, and a high-capacity 4500 mAh for its battery which supports Huawei’s 55 W SuperCharge.
A thick bar on the left side meanwhile acts as a handle for the device as well as a housing for Mate X’s triple- or quad-lens Leica cameras which act as both front and rear cameras.
Other features include a fingerprint sensor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage.
The Huawei Mate X will be released mid-2019 which will retail not less than €2,299.
