Huawei Mate X Vs. Galaxy Fold: Foldable Phone Comparison

  • Huawei unveils Mate X folding phone to rival Samsung Galaxy Fold

If you thought MWC 2019 only witnessed a boatload of 5G-enabled phones, well, there's another buzzword you can clearly hear on everyone's mouth at the show floor - foldable phones. We aren't sure yet but be ready to have a spare $3,000-$4,000 lying around in your bank account.

"We'll have less supply than we would of the S10 at launch, and also how it goes to market is really important to us", Beaumont said. That's all good until you consider most of us are still stuck with 4G for now. Unlike Samsung Galaxy Fold (which sports a notch for camera module), the Oppo phone doesn't have any cutout or notch on unfolding.

The Huawei Mate X costs €2,299, which converts to about $2,600, £2,000, AU$4,770 with 512GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM, while Huawei has hinted that there will be other variants.

The phone will have a very steep price at United States dollars 2,600 but it is hard to say that it is too expensive.

According to the Forbes, the Mate X has a single 8-inch OLED display that can be folded like a book. But Huawei is also expecting to sell the Mate X mid-2019 for nothing less than €2,299. However, it lacks a second display on its reverse side. It's a visual reminder that the device you're holding in your hands is essentially a first-gen product that's not quite perfected yet. When unfolded, the screen is a perfectly flat surface; and when folded, the two halves of the screen fit snugly to the frame. Hence, it is too early to speculate on the specifications of these phones.

Some market analysts pointed out, however, technical superiority does not always lead to success in the market as curved-screen smartphones, like Samsung's Galaxy Round and LG Electronics G Flex, proved.

Huawei has got you covered in terms of sustainability with the amount of battery power it carries.

"There's things like if you want to put a case on it, usability, durability, and we feel that having the screen on the inside is the best way to protect that screen", she explained.

HoloLens isn't the augmented reality innovation some originally anticipated it to be, but Microsoft has evolved the concept into a genuinely useful tool for businesses around the world. Wired UK declared that the Mate X "has stolen the MWC crown right from under Samsung's nose". The stage was darkened so little could be seen other than a big, bright foldable screen - proving that Samsung's phone was real. Additionally, many people have noted that Samsung's phone has a very small gap at the hinge, while Huawei's does not.
