This is the year of Foldable Phones because two out of the foldable phones to expect this year have already been unveiled.
Now, Huawei has unveiled the Mate X, the companies first foldable phone. The smartphone is in stiff competition with the Galaxy fold.
I will begin with the display of the Huawei Mate X, it comes with three displays. Here they are.
- A 6.6-inch display on the front.
- A 6.3-inch display on the rear.
- An 8-inch tablet-like display when the device is unfolded.
One of the differences between the Galaxy Fold and the Mate X is that the Mate X’s display folds on the outside of the device.
Commenting on the folding system, Huawei said that its out-folding design is more durable than Samsung’s in-folding implementation, presumably because it has a smaller bending radius. It’s also slimmer than Samsung’s Galaxy Fold effort.
