Mate X aims at stimulating 5G industry, says Huawei — Interview

The new Huawei Mate X will boast the world's first 7nm 5G multi-mode modem.

Huawei made no mention of how durable the phone is (though it did show off a special case for it) or how well third-party Android apps work on the various display modes. Folded, meanwhile, the phone is 11mm thick.

"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.

It's also worth mentioning that the way the Mate X is designed seems to be a smarter choice compared with the Galaxy Fold, particularly how it needs only one panel instead of two. The other differentiating factor is of course the $2,600 price-tag, which asks $600 more than the Samsung equivalent.

Trump Threatens To Cancel California's $929 Million High Speed Rail Grant
Now, after cost overruns and cutbacks in the scope of the ambitious project, the president wants the federal money back. Tuesday's comments won't be the last; the administration has given California until March 5 to formally respond.

United Kingdom pricing is yet to be officially announced for the Galaxy Fold, but in the rest of Europe it will cost 2,000 euro (£1,738).

Samsung's Galaxy Fold is scheduled to go on sale in late April, while Huawei's Mate X could be available as soon as the middle of 2019.

With two foldable smartphones already launched in 2019, who's going to be next?

Watching a Huawei spokesperson fold and unfold the screen was truly a sight to behold. For instance, the Mate X's power button doubles as a fingerprint sensor.

Trump aide predicts 'hundreds of miles' of border wall by 2020
After a failed government shutdown, the declaration of a national emergency represents a series of continuous losses for Trump. Trump said during a press conference announcing the national emergency that he knew he would be sued. "We have an emergency".

Based on the images Mr. Shen shared, this handset actually resembles the Huawei Mate X quite a bit.

The Mate X's screen wraps around the outside so users can still view it when it's closed, unlike the Samsung's Galaxy Fold, which has a screen that folds shut. "This phone will create a trend", he said of the Mate X whose retail price is 2,299 euros. The Mate X will also support Huawei's 55W fast charger which can top up the phone up to 85 percent in just half an hour. Its 6.8 inch screen is bigger than Apple's iPhone XS Max and Samsung Galaxy Fold. Huawei's version includes 5G capabilities, a part of their business which has previously come under fire, with various countries, including Australia, New Zealand and Canada expressing misgivings about using the Chinese company's 5G within their own borders. It comes with up to 8GB RAM and 512GB of storage.

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.
