W]e all know very well that after the launch of the South Korean giant Samsung’s Galaxy Fold now the well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has just made official its own folding smartphone, known as Huawei Mate X. In addition, this revolutionary device is compatible with 5G networks, hence, it is the first Huawei smartphone to feature 5G.
Huawei Just Launched World’s First 5G Ready, Triple-Screen Foldable Smartphone
After the launch of the South Korean giant Samsung’s Galaxy Fold now the well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has just made official its own folding smartphone, known as Huawei Mate X. In addition, this revolutionary device is compatible with 5G networks, hence, it is the first Huawei smartphone to feature 5G.
However, the big difference between the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the all-new Huawei Mate X is deployed on the outside, not inside, as we can use the entire half of the Mate X screen when we have it in “mobile format”.
When deployed on the hinge embedded in the back, we have a size more similar to a tablet than a smartphone. Yes, we are talking about an 8-inch screen with 2480 x 2200 resolution. When it closes, we have a FullHD+ screen of 6.6-inch with 2480 x 1148 resolution or 6.38-inch with 2480 x 892 resolution, depending on the profile of the device.
As you can see in the images, the back of the smartphone has a module that runs along the side to fit the screen when it is folded and serves as a grip when we convert the device into the tablet format.
This rear module has a triple camera and other features to highlight the smartphone, which takes beyond the Huawei Mate X, as it is the first 5G smartphone of the company, and we would have a fingerprint reader that moves to the side of the device. However, to know the key features of the device let’s have look at the key specs of Huawei Mate X.
- Screen: 8-inch screen (FullHD+ and 2480 x 2200 resolution), a 6.6-inch screen (FullHD+, 2480 x 1148), a 6.38-inch (FullHD+ 2.480 x 892)
