A few days after Samsung unveiled its foldable phone - Galaxy Fold, Huawei has announced its first foldable 5Gsmartphone - Mate X.
Launched at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona, Huawei's Mate X folds face out—so the screen is on the outside of the two sides when folded up—unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold which folds like a book. The Huawei handset is larger in both modes, and thinner when closed. However, it lacks a second display on its reverse side. Huawei's is a bit pricier at $2,600 versus Samsung's $1,980.
The lopsidedness of Huawei's folded displays are due to a vertical camera bar that runs along the back of the phone. This houses three cameras—a 40 MP main camera, a 16 MP wide-angle lens, and an 8 MP telephoto—an LED flash, and a power button. It's also the only section of the phone that is 11mm thick, which gives you both a place to hold the device, and provides room for bigger components like the USB-C port on the bottom and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. There is still no room for a headphone jack, though.
There's a battery in each half of the phone, and together they add up to 4500mAh. The Mate X will do a 55W quick charge with the included charger. 55W charging means that you'll charge from 0% to 85% in half an hour.
