Has not passed also weeks, as Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold, as we have already seen a competitor that is more subtle, with a larger screen and more flat when folded X Mate from Huawei. Shown at MWC 2019, Mate X boasts an 8-inch OLED display over the whole body, with a thickness of 11 mm when folded and impressive specifications, including 5G, the battery 4500 mAh processor Kirin 980.
Mate X supports the trend of foldable smartphones
The only OLED display Mate X essentially performs three functions. When the device is folded, you almost use a smartphone with two screens. The second display on the rear panel allows you to take a selfie or show what is on the main display, the person on the other side. Open Mate X and get an almost square tablet with a minimum framework on three sides.
One side is reserved for the thickest part of her need to take, there is three chambers, the accompanying flash and a button that locks the tablet into position. This approach allows to reduce the thickness of the main bus to the amazing of 5.4 mm. Even in the folded state Mate X just 11 mm thickness, largely due to the fact that as such “folds” is not (the screen is solid as a sheet of paper). There are additional plus is that the display is folded “out”: do not be afraid to slam it too much.
From a functional point of view all the displays that you get from your tablet:
- The 6.6-inch main display, in the folded state (19,5:9 aspect ratio, 2480 x 1148 resolution);
- A 6.4-inch rear display, in the folded state (25:9, 2480 x 892);
- 8-inch main display, in the expanded state (8:7,1, 2480 x 2200).
If you, like me, was born the question of why Huawei could not do this planetfone hybrid is a little wider to ensure a perfectly square display in the open state, the answer is no. Because the trend is set here this is literally the moment there are many unknowns in Huawei Mate X that will be known later. Does it look like the camera system that Huawei has put on the smartphone 20 Pro Mate? The brand Leica, all the same, but spec no. Three lenses that cover different levels of zoom.
Heart Mate X is the processor Huawei Kirin 980, same as the Mate 20 Pro and Honor View 20. Both are incredibly fast and responsive. Except the chip is a private 5G modem Huawei Balong 5000, which, coupled with a 7-nm chips provides space velocity.
The new device from Huawei is hiding an impressive battery of 4500 mAh, but no one knows how long it “lives” in everyday use. It is accompanied by an updated version Huawei SuperCharge capacity of 55 watt, which recharges Mate X to 85% in 30 minutes. The power button on the side also houses the fingerprint sensor.
If you as well as everyone, worried that the device would be too fragile to be put here and there on the stand MWC nobody wore white gloves, addressing with the device. In appearance it is very sturdy and sits perfectly in the hand.
Huawei Mate evaluates X at 2299 euros (about 170 000 rubles) for the version with 8 GB RAM and 512 GB of storage and will launch a smartphone with the middle of this year.
