Samsung Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e: Price, release date and availability

Samsung Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e: Price, release date and availability

In case you thought Samsung's $US2,000 ($2,805) Galaxy Fold was a singular shot at making a flexible phone, check this out.

The phone is Huawei's first foldable phone and it has some other new neat developments.

Like the Galaxy Fold, the Mate X is for early adopters only.

The Mate X and the Galaxy Fold will undoubtedly be niche devices when they launch. When unfolded face-out to become more tablet-like, the screen size increases to 8-inches.

The device is the company's first phone that comes with a truly beze-less display and a mechanism that slides down the entire screen to expose the dual front cameras.


Samsung also showed off Samsung Dex running on the Galaxy Fold. It is a unique form factor for sure, and to give potential customers a better look at the Galaxy Fold and the different ways it might come in handy to have a folding design, Samsung posted a hands-on video to YouTube.

Samsung last week unveiled its Galaxy Fold an event in the USA, grabbing headlines around the world, but just four days later Huawei has made an even bigger splash as it unveiled its Mate X.

Thomas Husson, an analyst at Forrester, said the Mate X "shows Huawei is a leader in tech innovation". The outward folding design allows for some more interesting features, much like the Royole FlexPai.

Speaking after unveiling Huawei's foldable phone concept, Mr Yu justified the higher price of the Mate X by saying he believed it was "definitely" superior to Samsung's new device. It has a single OLED panel that folds outwards and a thick bar on one side, which houses the cameras.

We also think Samsung's method of adding more cameras on the Fold makes more sense. The release date of the Huawei Mate X is "from the middle of 2019".


The premium Samsung Galaxy S10 flaunts a 6.1-inch AMOLED display panel that has a QHD+ resolution of 1440 x 3040 pixels.

"A display that folds inward is, say, 100 times more advanced than a display that folds outward", said an official from a display technology company.

Other new hardware includes the Matebook 14, a 14-inch touchscreen laptop equipped which Huawei said can be used for 14 hours without charging for office work.

The smartphone is powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 along with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage which is upgradeable to 512GB via microSD. Huawei has included a high-capacity 4500mAh battery and the new 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge charger can charge the battery to 85% in just 30 mins.
