Huawei's Mate X Is the Foldable Phone You Might Actually Want

Samsung Galaxy S10 Cryptocurrency Wallet Samsung Knox

Huawei revealed the Mate X phone on the eve of a four-day industry event in Spain to showcase new devices.

Compared with Samsung's take, the Mate X sports larger OLED screens across the board, and rather than folding inward, it folds outward. If you had pondered on the Galaxy fold price of $1980, then the Mate X is way too expensive to peep on.

The Mate X has an 8-inch foldable display with a thickness of 11mm when folded.

The device is the company's first phone that comes with a truly beze-less display and a mechanism that slides down the entire screen to expose the dual front cameras.

YouTube pulls advertising from anti-vaxxer videos
In response, several companies including Nestle, Epic Games , and Disney, have reportedly suspended advertising on YouTube . One solution is to do away with comments altogether - and if YouTube were to do so, it would find itself in good company.

Huawei believes MWC 2019 was the ideal platform to get some eyes and ears rolling on its newly launched foldable phone, the Mate X. Though it folds just like the Galaxy Fold, it is a lot different than Samsung's unique device. The Mate X has a large 8-inch screen with a resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels and an 8:7.1 aspect ratio when unfolded with pretty thin bezels and no notch or "cliff" like the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Full-and split screen modes are available to make the most of the area available.

British technology market analyst firm Canalys said it expects foldable phones will remain "exclusively ultra-luxury devices", with fewer than two million sold worldwide this year.

Huawei CEO Richard Yu had previously hinted at a foldable phone during an investor meeting in January and he was on stage in Barcelona to showcase the Mate X and it's foldable screen at conference session in Barcelona. The Mate X folds outwards, and it uses the same cameras as front-facing and rear-facing ones. What this boils down to is that the Mate X is ready for the next-generation mobile broadband. The bar also serves to provide housing for the USB-C connector as well as the 2-in-1 power button / finger-print sensor. The screen that folds around the rear is dormant unless used to take photos or for other similar tasks.

The Mate X starting price is a staggering 2,299 euro's or £1,996 and is to go on sale later this year. The Mate X will ship with 55W Huawei SuperCharge capability, allowing users to charge 85 percent of the phone's battery in just thirty minutes. The smartphone runs on an octa-core Exynos 9820 chipset paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which is expandable to up to 512GB via microSD card.
