The Huawei Mate X will be available in mid-2019 for 2299 Euros.
Hot on the heels of the reveal of Samsung's Galaxy Fold, Huawei announced its foldable display smartphone, the Mate X. But unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold it doesn't have separate exterior and interior screens that are accessed by folding the thing like a book. "The two halves combine into an 8.4", 2,480 x 2,200 display when unfolded. Huawei's larger flexible screen wraps around the front and back so it's ways exposed.
Of course, the Mate X is loaded with truly cutting-edge features, especially a 6.6-inch screen that opens to 8 inches. As for the nature of that display, for now all Huawei will say is that it's using OLED technology.
It's an astonishingly slender device. Folded together, it measures only 11mm and just 6.9mm unfolded. When it's folded, the Mate X comes to only 11 mm.
Because of the way it's designed, this camera phone is one of the first to use the same camera for selfies and normal camera shots.
It will release only in blue which will be emblazon on the hinge, which Huawei has called "Falcon Wing Hinge Design", boasting incredible portability when in large mode.

Goldman Sachs said in a note it expects OPEC output to average 31.1 million bpd in 2019, down from 31.9 million bpd. That means much will depend on demand, which Goldman said it expected to grow by 1.4 million bpd this year.
Huawei has launched its foray into foldable smartphones, with the Huawei Mate X officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2019 as a competitor to Samsung's Galaxy Fold and a device that could focus on productivity.
As for the 5G connectivity, the Huawei Mate X comes equipped with Huawei's own 7nm 5G chipset: the Balong 5000. That's potentially ten times the bandwidth you'd find on a current 4G LTE network, and enough to download a 1GB video in just three seconds.
"This phone is not only for today for 5G but also for future 5G".
Huawei has also developed what it's calling OneHop technology that lets users quickly share media and files from Huawei phones to the MateBook X Pro in seconds with NFC technology (used in PayWave) and Wi-Fi Direct by holding the phone near the bottom right corner of the laptop. Meanwhile Samsung and Royole have left a gap between the two screens when their devices are folded up.
With premium mobile phones already costing well over $US1000 ($1400) a piece, customers have been turning to cheaper alternatives, often made by lesser-known companies. The 55W Huawei SuperCharge tops the battery up quickly and in just 30 minutes, Huawei SuperCharge is able to charge the battery back to 85 percent. And then comes the battery to support all this.
