Foldable Huawei Mate X Leaks Out Through A Poster In Barcelona

But how do the two new devices compare? While it is possible this could be a fake it appears to be authentic and the timing of the advert installation coincides with the announcement.

Unlike Samsung's device, Huawei's Mate X features slightly curved screens that fold backward so that, when closed, there are screens on both sides of the phone. Xiaomi have a tri-fold design with the outer edges folding back around on themselves.

The Mate X also fits in with Huawei's plans around 5G, with the new foldable phone touted as an exclusively 5G device with the company boasting it can take advantage of what they describe as the most powerful 5G on the market. Hopefully we will soon hear more about the specs for Oppo's foldable device. These then unfold to create an eight-inch tablet display. Instead you have a single display that is essentially a double-screen phone when its been folded up. That's about the same size as a regular large phone, only without the bezels or screen notch you might be expecting.

The Huawei Mate X Pro is one of the most jaw-dropping devices ever to be revealed at MWC 2019. Huawei said during the presentation that its 5G tech would deliver sub-6G speeds, which in theory will be twice as fast as Qualcomm's chips.

As for the U.S., Huawei can only make so much headway as long as the government is casting the company as a cyber-villain, said Gartner analyst Tuong Nguyen.

When Huawei announced that the Mate X foldable phone would sell for 2,299 euros - roughly $2,600, £2,000 or AU$3,660 - the audience at Huawei's Mate X launch event here at MWC voiced their surprise and disappointment. Huawei has included a high-capacity 4500mAh battery and the new 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge charger can charge the battery to 85% in just 30 mins.

An interesting design point of note is that, because the device has been designed for one-handed use, when the phone is unfolded the user can access the handset's ergonomic curvature grip, which is located on the right hand backside of the device when in tablet mode.

The phone includes the company's 7nm Balong 5000 5G modem.

Samsung will have the Galaxy Fold on display at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week. There is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner with a button above it and on the back is a triple camera setup. The Galaxy S10+ comes in 8GB and 12GB RAM variants, while the Galaxy S10+ 5G will be available with 8GB of RAM only.
