It's only been a few days since Samsung unveiled its first foldable phone, but Huawei has already come through with a competitor, the Mate X.

Samsung Electronics Co.is examining a new naming arrangement for its next generation flagship phones following the launch of its Galaxy S10 series devices last week, a corporate source said Sunday.

Kevin Ho, president of the mobile handset division at Huawei, was asked by Metro.co.uk at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona whether or not the impressive 5G-capable phone will be made available in the US.

Coleman believes the Fold's form factor and multitasking capability will give partners new opportunities to create innovative solutions for customers. Moreover, both the displays of the device can be used simultaneously when it's in its smartphone mode. Vodafone simply says the Mate X is "coming soon".

The Mate X boasts some power in it, too. In the collapsed state, an nearly borderless 6.6-inch display in a 19.5:9 format is visible on the front, with a resolution of 2,480 x 1,148 pixels.

Unfolded, the Mate X becomes a full 8-inch tablet with a resolution of 2,480 by 2,200; the ledge turns into an ergonomic grip that sits on the back of the phone. That's an early head start for Huawei.

The cloud over Huawei also includes USA criminal charges filed last month against the company and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, who US prosecutors want to extradite from Canada. The manufacturer is calling the mechanism its "Falcon Wing Hinge System". Hopefully, we will see thinner bezels in upcoming iterations. When opened, the smartphone measures only 5.4 millimeters thick. A small left ledge on the rear display houses the Leica-tuned camera sensors and other components.

Huawei Mate X hands on #mwc19 #5G #huawei #foldable How well will it work for 5G content? Using the four 5G antennas, the Mate X achieves theoretical transfer rates of up to 4.6 Gbps.

When folded out, the display is 8 inches in size. As for its three cameras, which double as the selfie camera as well, Wong confirmed that it has the same wide-angle, standard and telephoto lens as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Mate X comes with an upgraded 55W version of Huawei SuperCharge, which supposedly charges the phone to 85% in 30 minutes.

Shared by Twitter user gimme2pm, the billboard shows a Huawei device called "Mate X" in its folded, bent, and fully unfolded states. Because Samsung is releasing the SDKs for the App Continuity capability, ISVs can build applications that utilize its multiscreen user experience, Coleman added. In the summer, however, should be a safe bet. That's when the Galaxy Fold starts to shine, seamlessly switching from a small to a large-screen Google Maps environment, taking and editing photos both folded and unfolded (again, with minimal lag), gaming like insane, and just all-around opening a new world of possibilities for everything from video calling to social networking to Netflix and chilling.
