Huawei recently flaunted its brand new flagship of foldable smartphones at MWC 2019. The prime one being Huawei Mate X. And no doubt, its technological advancements and design makes it a top contender for Samsung Galaxy Fold.
Samsung and Huawei, both have ignited the interest for foldable tablet-cum-smartphone devices. Although Huwaei’s design in quite unique and refined, let’s take a look at both devices.
Huawei Mate X Or Samsung Galaxy fold
Unlike the Galaxy Fold, which features a larger display that folds inward like a book, the Mate X unfolds outward with a large 8-inch continuous display. When it’s folded, you have one 6.6-inch, notch-free, and bezel-starved main display combined with an elongated 6.4-inch rear display.
Huawei Mate X has drawn more attention because of its sleek and attractive thin bezels. On folding, it transforms into a modern flagship smartphone. Near the fold-edge, it features a spine which increases smartphone grip. It also features 5G compatibility which is absent in Galaxy Fold.
Galaxy Fold on the other hand has thickness of 2 smartphones. On folding, it becomes a 4.6 inch smartphone which is quite thick to hold.
Galaxy Fold costs $1980 and is set to release on April 26 while Mate X is expected to release in June 2019 at $2600 price tag.
Huawei Mate X feels a more complete hybrid than Galaxy Fold even being around 600 bucks costlier. It’s pretty sure that its sleek design is winning hearts at MWC Barcelona.
