Due out in early March, the $129 Bluetooth 5.0-enabled earbuds pair seamlessly with Galaxy smartphones and integrate with Samsung's Bixby virtual assistant so you can ask questions or use your voice to make calls, send text messages, and check battery life. To me, it's far more elegant-looking that the Samsung Galaxy Fold, with smaller bezels all around and a more usable main display for phone mode. Xiaomi have a tri-fold design with the outer edges folding back around on themselves. There is no other leaked info on the Mate X, but we can expect high-end performance from an SoC such as the Kirin 980, and the same triple camera from the Mate 20 Pro.
Foldable phones used to be something we'd see in the sci-fi movies, a distant dream that would linger around in people's imagination like flying cars or human-like robots, but while we are yet to see cars flying above our heads, foldable phones are no longer just a fantasy. When folded, the phone does become thicker than any normal smartphone, measuring 11mm. With more than 100 components involved in its design, the result is that the Mate X's hinge allows for an ultra-thin design.
You might have deduced at this point that when you fold up the phone the two resulting screens aren't symmetrical.
The poster revealed the tagline "Meet the world's first 5G foldable phone" that seemingly confirm that the phone could be named Huawei Mate X.
The 5G on the device also appears to to be a move to place the phone as an enterprise tool, offering users high speed downloads - as well as fast charging speeds.
The firm also introduced a new 55W SuperCharge fast charging feature it claims can give the Mate X 85 percent of power in just 30minutes.More news: How Chicago’s surveillance camera network helped solve the Jussie Smollett case
When folded, the hardware also has a 6.38-inch display on its rear.
On the surface, the Huawei Mate X is a highly impressive piece of technology, but many questions remain regarding performance and software features.
- 12GB RAM and 512GB internal memory. Of course the speeds you'd get are wholly dependant on your network.
The number one concern of the Mate X however is the fact that it is a outwards folding phone.
