Huawei has finally unveiled its folding phone, and it looks as pleasing as the Galaxy Fold, if not better. The company calls this product as the Mate X, and it has the fastest implementation of 5G yet. The Huawei’s modem called Baolong 5000 offers twice the speed of the present 5G solutions in the market.
Most interestingly, the Mate X covers a massive 8″ screen on its front. The resolutions of the AMOLED screen is 2480 x 2200 pixels. And, it folds to provide you a smaller 6.6” screen with a resolution of 2480 x 1148 pixels, which is the already known ratio of 19.5:9.
That’s not all! We have another display on the phone on the other side. Like the Nubia X and the Nex Dual Display, it will use the rear cameras to provide selfies. Well, this way one can obtain best in class selfies even with a wide angle lens.
Interestingly, the demos and the presentations in the official event shows four cameras on the Mate X. But, the device itself in the event bears three snappers. The company didn’t reveal the camera set up on the gadget, but it will be as good as the Mate 20 Pro. Also, there exists a Lecia branding along with the camera sensors.
The company in the presentation reveals that Mate X is the thinnest foldable phone in the world. What I mean to say is that the Mate X measures 11 mm thick in its folding form. When the device folds, one side of it holds slim at 5.4 mm. But, some components like the camera still need room to operate properly, so you have a bump on one side of the Mate X.
Anyways, the Huawei Mate X gets a 55W SuperCharge feature. It is the fastest charging smartphone in the world. Even more, it can charge 85% of the battery in 30 minutes. To remind, a whopping 4500 mAh battery cell on the Mate X will hold the phone’s power for an entire day. There’s a USB-C port on the bottom, and a fingerprint scanner rests on the side, doubling as a power button.
The Huawei Mate X costs more than the Galaxy Fold, and that’s the first time in history. The phone will be available for purchase by the mid of this year, and it will set back at €2,299 ( nearly $2,600) in Interstellar Blue color.
