Huawei has revealed its first foldable smartphone called Mate X just a few days after Samsung’s first offering,but the price tag of $2,600 Mate X takes a different approach from Samsung's Galaxy Fold as Huawei’s Mate X folds face out,therefore the screen is on the outside of the two sides when folded up,unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold which folds like a book.
Revealed on sunday at Mobile World Congress, the Huawei Mate X is a 5G-supporting foldable smartphone that uses a "Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge," Huawei Mate X can switch between a 6.6-inch smartphone with OLED displays on the front and on the rear to a larger 8-inch tablet.
The Huawei Mate X is larger in both modes, and thinner when closed measuring 5.4 millimeters as compared to Galaxy Fold. The Huawei Mate X puts much of the electronics into the hinge, it forms a natural handle, making it easier for the user to hold. It pops open using a button with no notch, unlike the Galaxy Fold.
The Huawei Mate X is arriving in June, and will start from 2,299 euros ($2,611), which is expensive than Samsung's sub-$2,000 device.
