As a new breed of smartphones, Huawei Mate X combines 5G, foldable screen, AI and an all-new mode of interfacing to provide consumers with an unprecedented user experience.
Though comparisons to Samsung's Galaxy Fold are inevitable, the Mate X takes the idea of the foldable phone in a very different direction. The US has told European countries that it may find it hard to work with anyone who uses Huawei products in their networks after raising security concerns about the company. And surprisingly to many, the name of that company is.
The Mate X's display can fold back on itself to become a 6.6-inch display, slightly bigger than the screen on the foldable phone which Samsung, the world's biggest smartphone seller, unveiled on Wednesday in San Francisco.
The decision to show media the device in this controlled fashion has us believe that, again like Samsung, Huawei has made a technological marvel but is cautious about the software bugs.
When jaws dropped at the $1,980 price of Samsung's first folding phone, Huawei said "Hold my beer". There's no notch or punch hole, because there is no selfie camera. From what our peepers could perceive, the display looks fairly impressive, with good dollops of brightness, contrast and colour, with the tablet screen looking particularly impressive.
The Mate X is also fairly slim for what it is, sitting at 5.4mm thick.
Having a tablet in your pocket, though, is good for when you want to preview images on the fly - previewing them on the bigger screen will mean you get a better idea of the quality.
The phone will be powered by a Balong 5000 5G modem, which can also support older generations. And did you notice there are no front cameras on this phone?
Yu was also keen to stress that the Mate X has a larger screen than the Galaxy Fold - 8-inches across. On the body is a fingerprint sensor on the right-hand side.
The Mate X is promised around the middle of this year. This compares to 2.3Gbps on rival Qualcomm and Samsung models.
The Huawei Mate X will be released in the second half of the year and cost an "eyebrow-raising" $2600. And then comes the battery to support all this. Huawei said it has developed 55W SuperCharge tech for the Mate X that will charge it from 0-85% in 30 minutes. "The HUAWEI Mate X will be the first key for consumers to open the door to 5G smart living". It also seemed that the hinge locked into place via some sort of magnetic system, as that's what it sounded like when unfolding the phone. However, all that futurism will come at a price, and a steep one at that.
The Galaxy Fold has a triple-camera system located at the rear of the device which consists of a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto camera, and a 10-megapixel front camera for selfies.
Originally, the project was conceived to connect the Los Angeles basin with San Francisco's Bay Area in two hours and 40 minutes. It's put toward constructing a 119-mile (191.5-kilometer) segment of track in the Central Valley expected to cost $10.6 billion.
