$2,600 Huawei folding phone makes Samsung’s look cheap

The Huawei Mate X is another standout piece of innovation and so is the asking price for this foldable smartphone.

Model Mate X will support a new generation of 5G networks.

Samsung had unveiled its own folding smartphone last week, priced at almost US$2,000 ($2,627), as part of a bid to top the technology of Chinese rivals and Apple Inc. The fair started with press conferences on Sunday, before the doors open on Monday, Feb. 25, and runs until Feb. 28. However, when you open the Mate X's fold, you'll get a huge 8-inch display with a almost square aspect ratio of 8:7.1 and a resolution of 2480×2200 pixels. - Let's remind you that the X here is pronounced as "EX" and not TEN like in the case of the Apple iPhone - Mate X will now be available in Interstellar Blue colour but more variants are expected in future - The selfie camera in the Mate X is a Lieca camera and Huawei claims it is "best-in-class".

But how do the two new devices compare?

Thus, all components required to power the device sit in the sidebar (that you can see raised on the back when Mate X is opened up) and this includes the processor, cameras, 5G antennas, and a lot more.

Huawei is pulling out all the stops in other areas, too. Samsung's main Android threat right now would surely launch a foldable handset of its own, one it has been teasing for months now.

Huawei, a Chinese company with a name many people in the West don't know how to pronounce (it's "HWA-way"), wants to join the market's upper echelon. Huawei came third, though in some quarters it took second place, IDC data showed.

February 24, 2019, Earlier this week the technological giant, Samsung, has unveiled their new phone.

But Huawei's products are few and far between in the U.S. The scarcity stems from long-running security concerns that the company could facilitate digital espionage on behalf of China's government.

The cloud over Huawei also includes US criminal charges filed last month against the company and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, who USA prosecutors want to extradite from Canada. Research firm Gartner estimates it now sells about 13 percent of its phones in Europe.

"Brand building is a long-term exercise, but it's going to be especially hard in the US because of the way they have branded all of China", he said. Now your chances of breaking it have doubled, but Huawei plans to create a special, albeit weird-looking, protective case for the phone that will act as a protector for the smaller 6.38-inch screen, while allowing you to use the 6.6-inch display just as a regular smartphone.

It's hard to convey just how cool-looking the Mate X is.

The keynote has now been made and it has been confirmed that the phone will cost 2299-Euros so around £2000 with a launch date in the middle of the year.
