Huawei’s Foldable Mate X Phone Will Put Samsung’s Galaxy Note Fold To Shame
By Yimin Huang, 09 Sep 2019
Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu has revealed that the brand’s Mate X foldable phone will likely be out in October at the IFA briefing.
Yu explained that the foldable phones would have been on sale if not for the introduction of 5G and the time needed for app developers to accomodate to the bigger screen size.
Yu admitted that there had been some unprecedented challenges in making the foldable phones, such as the extensive cost and difficulty in producing the phone in large numbers. He added that Huawei might add the new Kirin 990 chip into the devices.
Unlike Samsung’s Galaxy Note Fold that contains a bendable screen on the inside, the Mate X’s screen is curved around its exterior such that users can choose to unfold it for the full tablet-sized screen or leave it closed for the usual phone-sized display.
Mate X foldable phone was first revealed to the public at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona back in February. It is widely seen as Samsung's biggest competitor.
