Huawei Announces 5G Folding Smartphone with New Folding Screen

Share

This week, it is the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, Spain, a four day showcase for the manufacturers of smartphones to announce and promote their new devices. Last week Samsung of course announced their new folding smartphone, the Galaxy Fold and yesterday, Huawei announced theirs. It is called the Mate X and I cannot wait to test this incredible device.

Richard Yu, is the CEO of Huawei and having watched several of his live performances, I know it’s always very exciting. Yu, contemplated the question ““How can we bring the more big innovation to this smartphone industry?” and to be honest, I completely understand. Huawei products are really very good. The Mate X will sell for $2,600 and it goes on sale around summer time this year. That’s actually more than Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, which is priced at $2,000.

What’s really interesting about the Huawei Mate 10 is the way the screen wraps around the outside of the device, rather than fold inside when it’s closed. This excites me, a lot. Yu explained that Huawei engineers spent almost three years perfectly the Mate 10 hinge, so it doesn’t leave a gap when closed.

I am fully aware of the cloud hanging over Huawei and I only hope it lifts soon, because once you experience their products, you will completely support my view on their innovation, it’s incredibly exciting.
