Huawei Mate X: foldable 5G smartphone that costs $2600

There's a massive 4500mAh battery inside the device.

According to Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu, Mate X is the fastest 5G phone backed by the Balong 5000 modem. The phone offers three screen options. It folds outwards into an 11mm thick handset with a 6.6-inch main display and a 6.4-inch secondary screen.

Why it's important: Foldable smartphones are creating a buzz in the consumer electronics sector, and Huawei looks to show its leadership in flexible display technology as well as 5G. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Mate X folds up to 180 degrees apart without any visible gap.

Market research firm Strategy Analytics predicted that the foldable smartphone market will grow from 14 million in 2020 to 50 million by 2022. This is different from Samsung's approach, which folds the screen inward and puts a smaller second screen on the back of the Galaxy Fold.

Mate X can meet the user demand for larger screen size for work or entertainment on both screens.

The 4-minute long film details the device inside and out, starting with the exterior, paying special attention to the Galaxy Fold's unique hinge, assortment of color options and various accessories.

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

Like other recent Huawei devices, the Mate X is powered by a 7nm Kirin 980 chipset. That's why Oppo will not be mass-producing a folding device quite yet, the company Vice President has confirmed. The was made explicit with the launch of the Mate X foldable phone yesterday. Huawei says it has patented the hinge design.

The race to build the best foldable phone is officially on.

Tech analyst Shana Glenzer on Samsung's new foldable smartphone the Galaxy Fold. When it is folded, it still is thin with a thickness of just 11 mm. Once again, Huawei is beating its rivals in terms of product design.

He said Huawei hoped to be able to reduce the price of the Mate X over time and that it was his dream for everyone to have access to it.

Inside the smartphone's slim body is the latest Leica cameras, supporting the most advanced imaging features to date. The Mate X's dual SIM caters for both 4G and 5G.

Mate X's outward-folding design also leaves the device always at risk of getting scratches. The screen that folds around the rear is dormant unless used to take photos or for other similar tasks, the newspaper noted.

That means pushing the boundaries of smartphone pricing to a new limit, leaving Apple - the traditional leader in that aspect - far behind. At 2,299 Euro (roughly $2600), however, the Mate X costs much more than the $1980 Galaxy Fold.
