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

With a screen that turn into a 8 inch tablet, Mate X will be available later then Galaxy Fold, in the mid 2019 at a higher price, United States dollars 2,600.

While the Chinese firm's offering appears determined to challenge Samsung in the new realm of foldable phones, it appears OPPO also has a futuristic device in the works that has just been revealed.

With Samsung electronics' foldable smartphone Galaxy Fold that has been unveiled in San Francisco, the disclosure of Huawei Mate X is going to lead to a new era of foldable smartphone competition.

Mate X was launched at the start of MWC 2019 in Barcelona and it will come with a 5G capability as well.

Forrester analysts Thomas Husson stated: "No matter how innovative and technology advanced the new device is, it will take a lot more time for a critical mass of consumers to experience the benefits of foldable phones and 5G technology".

He further said: "Should you (India) initiate any reaction first, you would never be able to surprise us we will surprise you". In the wake of the Pulwama attack , India has reportedly been pressuring the FATF to take strict action against Pakistan .

Samsung is showing off the Galaxy Fold, which is slated to ship in late April.

The Mate X is packing two screens.

Samsung Galaxy Fold is looking really good and might be the only folding smartphone done right at the moment. However, the rumor mill has already leaked some vital information on these phones to give us an idea about which is the better device between the two.

Huawei's foldable smartphone officially measures at 11 millimeters in thickness when folded outward, meaning the display has a curvature of at least 11 millimeters to fold out.

Huawei says the Mate X is the "world's fastest foldable 5G smartphone", and that its position as a manufacturer of 5G network infrastructure has given it a unique advantage because the company was able to test the phone on internal 5G networks before release.

So, as if we didn't have enough to keep up with when it comes to technology, apparently we now need a folding smartphone. The device was less of a phone and more like a small paperback that folded open into a tablet. Folded the phone measures in at 11mm, which is considerably better than the Fold's 17mm, but is still a tad bigger than current flagships like the iPhone XS (7.7 mm) and Galaxy S10 (7.8 mm). But, of course, you have to fold the screen to get the preview for a selfie. (In some cases, the device maker will also choose to sell new products directly to consumers at the same time carriers do.) We know that the phone will launch with exclusive partner Verizon sometime in Q2 before becoming available on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile in the following months.
