I guess that this is the year of foldable phones finally. First Samsung and now just like we posted the leaked details of Mate X. It’s official now. People were not allowed to touch the phone during the launch but from all the videos seen over the internet and from reviewers here is our detailed first glance on the phone.

Huawei Mate X is the upcoming foldable smartphone to give competition to Galaxy Fold. Huawei Mate X was introduced by Huawei and man it is a pretty darn phone.

Specs at Glance

  • Mate X has a single 8-inch OLED panel that wraps around the outside of the device.
  • In phone mode, there’s a 6.6-inch, 19.5:9 main display with a 6.38-inch rear portion.
  • Kirin 980 processor
  • Balong 5000 5G modem with a maximum speed of 4.6GBps

The Phone has a fingerprint scanner on its power button to unlock the phone. The bezels are so tiny as compared to Galaxy Fold. USB Type-C port is located on the bottom edge of the side panel. According to the presentation, the bar also makes the device easier to hold in tablet mode.

Price of Huawei Mate X

The price for the Mate 20 X with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage will be €2,299 (around $2600).

It would be costlier than Samsung’s Galaxy Fold whose price was announced as 1980 USD.

Personal Opinion

The phone definitely looks more unique and futuristic than Galaxy Fold. As the screen is folded backward and not like a book as that in the case of Galaxy Fold, The Huawei’s latest offering seems more slim and sleek. But the screen is too huge. The phone’s availability is still not available as it told that it would be available for consumers in mid of 2019.

What you think which is more suitable for you if you going for a foldable device in 2019.
