Huawei Brings Its Own Bendy Screen With The Bendy Mate X

The Mate X is the answer to a question Huawei faced as it sought to satisfy smartphone users' demands for bigger screens and longer battery life, said Richard Yu, CEO of its consumer business group. When folded, it has a 6.6-inch display on the front and 6.38-inch on the back.

Huawei, the world's second-largest smartphone vendor after Samsung, said it had taken the lead in developing phones for 5G - which promises super fast internet speeds - because it was also involved in developing the networks. Following the lead of Samsung, which showed off its first-ever foldable smartphone this week, the Chinese giant today gave us a look at its take with the Huawei Mate X.

BARCELONA-It's been less than a week since the Samsung Galaxy Fold was announced in California, but it's already facing stiff competition from Huawei, which opened Mobile World Congress here with a 5G folding phone called the Huawei Mate X. Like the Galaxy Fold, this device has two batteries, one in each half of the Mate X, with a combined capacity of 4500mAh. Moreover, because the screen is so big, the selfie mode will let you preview images in real time, or allow the subject of your photos to see what you've just captured. Huawei's 2299-euro price tag is only slightly steeper than Samsung's Galaxy Fold, which will cost 2000 euros when it's released this year. There is no headphone jack on the phone, like the Galaxy Fold. Its display measures 6.6-inches when the device is folded and it expands into a tablet-like 8-inch form factor when opened.


Before we delve into the internal specifications, you should know that Huawei has done everything in its power to prevent the Mate X from getting bulky.

With fast 5G connectivity, Huawei says consumers will be able to download a 1GB movie in 3 seconds. Washington has been lobbying European allies to keep its equipment out of new 5G networks. The speed of the Kirin 980 processor is unknown, as well as the capabilities of its cameras.

Mate X comes with an upgraded 55W version of Huawei SuperCharge, which supposedly charges the phone to 85% in 30 minutes. These then unfold to create an eight-inch tablet display.


We were lucky enough to get a small demonstration of the Mate X and were impressed with what we saw.

On paper, Huawei has made something special with the Mate X. It's made sure that this foldable phone goes beyond the gimmick, packing in some serious camera tech and making sure both variants of the device have a reason to exist.

It was also interesting to note that the strip that carries the camera is the beating heart of the device. It's inside the narrow body where the Leica-designed cameras and USB-C port live.
