The Huawei Mate X Costs About $2,600 And Is A Big Reply To Samsung’s Galaxy Fold


The Huawei Mate X is the foldable smartphone that our science fiction creative energies conjured up years back, and it became a real thing at MWC 2019 in Barcelona. It also the most expensive non-custom phone in the world.

The Mate X has a strong pivot with the goal that it can change from a 6.6-inch and 6.38-inch telephone into an entire 8-inch Android tablet. It’s Huawei’s FullView bezel-decreased screen that improves this foldable telephone look than the Samsung Galaxy Fold announced a week ago. The Huawei Mate X additionally has some genuine strength backing it up, with 5G, the new Kirin 980 chipset, and a strong 4,500 battery.

The Mate X costs €2,299 (as announced in Spain), which is about $2,600 and £2,000. Internal storage for the Mate X is 512GB and 8GB of RAM.

This foldable telephone will hit the UK on EE, Three and Vodafone this year. The official launch date will be sometime in the summer so that’s anything from June to August. Surprisingly, there are no release dates for the US and North America and you can wonder is this has anything to do with the way Canada and the US have treated a Huawei CFO which is threatening to become a full political/diplomatic war or maybe not.

To switch between displays, a button on the back of the Mate X can be pressed to release the back part of the display so it very well may be spread out into an 8-inch tablet.

The front display of the telephone truly is all-screen – 6.6-crawls of it, as an unmistakable difference to the Samsung Galaxy Fold’s modest 4.6-inch outer display.

This is the place the Mate X truly emerges. Samsung’s single external screen in collapsed mode returns us to the times of substantial bezel outlines and little displays.

Flip the  Mate X  and its back bit – whatever remains of the display, makes an auxiliary 6.4-inch screen that is more slender – this could be cool for viewing 21:9 films, enacting the littlest display, and possibly saving battery.

The reason this could spare battery comes down to the Mate X’s screen tech. As this is an OLED show singular pixels can be started up, with unused pixels remaining pitch dark; this is as opposed to LCD shows that require the entire board – every one of the pixels – to be lit up all the while. Huawei profits by this power saving component intrinsic to OLED tech in the centre structure of its Mate X.


The Mate X has no front camera, only an essential triple camera around the back. The back screen bends over as a viewfinder, which ought to really improve taking selfies an even affair, given the way that back cameras are quite often better in quality than selfie shooters.

The second screen can likewise be utilized to make a double viewfinder – one on either side of the telephone. This lets you to see a preview when somebody’s snapping your photo with the Mate X.


There’s a huge battery inside the Mate X – entirely are two batteries, consolidating for an absolute 4,500mAh.

Huawei’s 55W SuperCharge tech, which makes a big appearance on the Mate X, not just outperforms the 40W charging in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, however it can likewise control up the Mate X to 85% from 0% in only 30 minutes.

Controlled by a Kirin 980 processor combined with a Balong 5000 5G modem, the telephone doesn’t simply charge rapidly, it ‘5Gs’ rapidly as well, taking as meagre as three seconds to download a 1GB film.



If you are worried about the bending screen and it durability, the Mate X screen has gone through 100,000 folds in lab-condition pressure tests, and it additionally demonstrated how it has built up a case to keep it secured; yet in particular, it feels like a strong piece of unit, regardless of how meagre it is.

Another key concern with the hardness of the device, particularly with a wraparound telephone this way, is scratch resistance, or deficiency in that department. Adaptable displays are plastic, which scratches more than glass – recall the first Moto Z Force that was touted to have an unbreakable screen to endure little drops, however scratched much more easily?

In this appreciation there’s a decent possibility the Samsung Galaxy Fold will be stronger than the Mate X, with less uncovered adaptable screen and a glass external screen.

Fortunately Huawei reps said the Mate X will really experience greater strength tests and some minor changes before it dispatches in a couple of months.
