Huawei Consumer Business Group has unveiled what they call the World's Fastest 5G Foldable Phone, HUAWEI Mate X, redefining smartphone design with a foldable form factor. When folded, the device is a huge display smartphone with a 6.6-inch screen, and when opened, it turns into a slim tablet with an 8-inch screen. The new multi-form factor revolutionizes both productivity and entertainment experiences on a mobile device. For more information see the IDTechEx report on Flexible, Printed and Organic Electronics 2019-2029.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei CBG, said, "The HUAWEI Mate X's revolutionary form factor is achieved by Huawei's relentless effort in R&D. It represents a voyage into the uncharted. As a new breed of smartphones, HUAWEI Mate X combines 5G, foldable screen, AI and an all-new mode of interfacing to provide consumers with an unprecedented user experience. The HUAWEI Mate X will be the first key for consumers to open the door to 5G smart living."
HUAWEI Mate X features a high strength flexible OLED panel and a falcon wing mechanical hinge. The 6.6-inch dual display panel equipped on the HUAWEI Mate X is a true FullView display. When unfolded, it transforms into an 8-inch tablet only 5.4 mm thick. Images are displayed with great clarity and detail, and the panel itself is safe, durable and features outstanding cooling performance. The foldable smartphone comes in a new Interstellar Blue.
With an exemplary design that blends style with technology, the revolutionary Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge supports movement, balancing between the overall aesthetics and technology. When unfolded, the screen is a perfectly flat surface; and when folded, the two halves of the screen fit snugly to the frame. The two modes—smartphone and tablet modes—transition seamlessly from one to another.
Inside the smartphone's slim body is the latest Leica cameras, supporting advanced imaging feature. The foldable design makes it possible for the camera system to play the role of both front and rear cameras. When folded, the HUAWEI Mate X shows a view finder on both sides, so even the subjects in the frame can contribute to the creative process.
Equipped with the world's first 7nm 5G multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000, the world's first chipset to support both SA and NSA architectures. The HUAWEI Mate X's dual SIM feature supports both 4G and 5G.
