Huawei's foldable smartphone officially measures at 11 millimeters in thickness when folded outward, meaning the display has a curvature of at least 11 millimeters to fold out. One such title is Asphalt 9, which appears in this video taking full advantage of the phone's folding screen. It may be early days for foldables - and for 5G, for that matter - but the future's looking bright.
The Mate X comes with a 4,500 mAh battery, which can be fast charged with Huawei's SuperCharge to 85% in 30 minutes, says the Chinese company.
Thomas Husson, an analyst at Forrester, said the Mate X "shows Huawei is a leader in tech innovation".
A 7nm multi-mode Balong 5000 modem chipset (a world's first) unlocks 5G mobile network support and is supposedly capable of 4.6Gps download speeds on the theoretical sub-6GHz band.
My favorite part of our demo was checking out how the Mate X's cameras work. Huawei surpassed Apple to become the world's second-largest handset maker past year.
The revelation that Huawei is discounting the United States as a market leaves American punters left choosing the Samsung Galaxy Fold if they want to get their hands on a folding phone. - The company is also streaming the event live, those interested can watch the event watch the live stream here.
Owners of the S10 will also be treated to an embedded fingerprint scanner under the display and a technology which allows the other phones and accessories to wireless charge when placed against this new Samsung flagship.
Even out of 5G coverage, though, the phone should still wow. Samsung's inwards folding design here will be much less prone to scratches, however the Mate X will be a quite more fragile phone in this regard. The Mate X will come with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space, which is more than enough for a phone, if you ask me.
BOE Technology Group and LG Display are some of the other flexible OLED panel makers for smartphones, but their yield rates are said to be far from satisfactory.
