Huawei unveiled the Mate X at MWC, Barcelona this year. The device comes with 5G multi-mode chipset called Balong 5000. The Huawei Mate X uses a 'Falcon Wing' Mechanical hinge at the folding spot and when folded, is a 6.6-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2480 X 1148. When unfolded, the phone turns into an 8-inch display with a resolution of 2480 X 2200. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold which unfolds like a book, revealing a larger display inside, the Mate X actually uses the reverse method to combine the rear panel and the front into a uniform display, similar to what was used by the Royole FlexPai.
This also allows Huawei to use the rear camera as the selfie camera. The Huawei Mate X comes with a 40MP wide-angle lens along with a 16MP ultra-wide lens and an 8MP telephoto lens. All this is packed packed into an 11mm thick body when folded, and only 5.5mm thick when unfolded. The phone also packs a 4500mAh battery which supports Huawei’s new Super Charge with speeds up to 55 Watts. The Huawei Mate X is priced at 2299 euros for 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.The phone only comes in Interstellar Blue colour.
