MWC 2019: Huawei's Mate X foldable phone bends backwards and looks incredible

5G foldable phone

The main OLED screen curves along a unique Falcon Wing hinge, although I have no idea what it feels like since the press wasn't allowed to touch it. Image Source: Chris Smith, BGR The main problem of a foldable phone with a massive screen on the outside is, well, the massive screen on the outside.

Priced at USA $2,600 (€2,299), it comes with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. In the collapsed state, an nearly borderless 6.6-inch display in a 19.5:9 format is visible on the front, with a resolution of 2,480 x 1,148 pixels. More than that, the phone Is supposed to come with a triple rear camera, as well as a single camera on the front side. This revolutionary device, however, can expand to tablet size to make it a lot more fun to watch videos, for example. That lets them see exactly what they are going to look like before a picture is taken.

The same software trick has been used on phones with notches too, so once you enable the black bar on the Galaxy 10, similar visual modifications are applied too. The Mate X has top-of-the line specifications given the heavy use case.

But Huawei wouldn't be where it is today if it had been content focusing merely on China and other Asian markets.

Did Huawei just blow Samsung out of the water with the MWC 2019 announcement of the world's first out-folding smartphone? The back screen is 6.4 inches and can be used for taking selfies, and other tasks that users tend to do with one hand, such as dialing phone numbers.

The Mate X foldable phone is set for release in the "middle" of 2019 and will cost €2299, the company said. And unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, this handset will be quite different.

Trump publicly attacked Russian Federation probe over 1,100 times
As several experts have pointed out, that's tantamount to obstruction of justice, and perhaps the clearest example to date. The former official was asked on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" if he believes Trump may still be a Russian asset.

Speaking on the NCSC findings regarding the safety of Huawei's equipment, Ren reiterated the fact that many of UK's mobile companies, including Vodafone, EE and Three, are working with Huawei to develop their 5G networks.

We believe that EE will probably be the first 5G network live in the United Kingdom around the middle of the year. This 5G connectivity alone is a big point of difference between Huawei's effort and the Galaxy Fold.

The battery tech for the Mate X is literally two-fold, with two batteries adding up to 4,500 mAh powering the thing.

Given that there are 3 huge displays on the phone, Huawei has included a 4500mAh battery with an insane 55W charging speed which can reportedly charge the device up to 85% in just 30 minutes. Samsung believes it will prove critics wrong with the launch of its first commercial foldable device, which the company has touted over the years as an R&D effort since 2011, most recently last summer, and believes will create a new mobile device category.

When folded out, the display is 8 inches in size.

There's a lag of a few seconds where the device is figuring out that it needs to change the screen orientation. The video looked great on the 8-inch screen and Huawei confirmed that it will be able to play back 4K video.
