Huawei Mate X Shows Samsung How to Fold a Phone

Foldable phones are all the rage as Samsung leads the way with the Galaxy Fold

The tagline, "World's first foldable 5G smartphone".

Youve seen the teasers, but now everything is official - Huawei introduced its foldable smartphone, called Mate X. "This looks like you're using tablet, but it's much lighter than a tablet", said Yu.

Last week, fellow smartphone giants Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Fold device, which features a normal front screen, with a larger tablet display opening out from inside the device. But unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Mate X's larger screen appears to wrap around the outside of the gadget, instead of being enclosed like a spread in a magazine. On the Mate 20 Pro from late 2018, Huawei introduced 40-watt charging speeds, but the Mate X is even quicker with support for charging speeds of 55 watts, almost 40% faster. "The new device has nothing to envy to Samsung's latest Galaxy Fold announcement".

When folded, the Mate X has a front-facing 5.6 inch screen (2480 x 1148 / 19.5:9 aspect ratio).

Forward-looking: Huawei is making a splash at this year's MWC by debuting its own foldable phone that the company says is 5G ready. In fact, as thin or less than an Apple iPad when closed, according to Huawei. It also doesn't fold dead-centre, like a book.

The Mate X would be able to download a 1 gigabyte movie in three seconds but also be priced at 2,299 euros (US$2,607) when it goes on sale later this year, setting a new upper limit for consumer smartphones.

That makes it "the only country ever to reach this milestone", said Stephen Brennock, analyst at brokerage PVM Oil Associates Ltd. The group, known as OPEC+, agreed in December to cut output by 1.2 million bpd to prevent a crude supply glut from growing.

California to Sell Debt in March for Train Trump Blasts as Waste
The action marks an escalation in the battle between President Donald Trump and the state of California since Gov. Newsom's new plan would only consist of 110 miles of track in the Central Valley, from Bakersfield to Merced.

The spine hosts the Mate X's triple camera and also helps with handling - it's about 11mm thick, which is double the thickness of the rest of the device (5.4mm).

Finally, Huawei showcased its 5G CPE Pro mobile router, which is aimed at taking 5G connectivity into the home allowing for the transmission of 8K video in real time. Huawei has a specially made case for it that offers full protection. "I's better for productivity over 16:9, better for performing, better for reading documentation", said Yu. However, if you do lose out on charging the device, well, the 55W SuperCharge adapter is here to the rescue.

The grip bar is also an ergonomic way to, well, firmly grip the Mate X with one hand.

"This phone is not only for today for 5G but also for future 5G".

Using Intel's 5G mobile trial platform and Ericsson's software, the two have proved they can run 4G and 5G traffic simultaneously on the same frequency carrier. Additionally, there are four cutting-edge 5G antennas built into the compact body of the HUAWEI Mate X to enhance connection quality.

Perhaps the biggest perk of the VIVE Focus Plus is that companies can easily port their PC VR based content to HTC's new system. Lots of such wallpapers are being offered with the Galaxy S10, so check out the default background collection offered by Samsung.
