Just days after Samsung Galaxy Fold got unveiled, Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has launched its foldable 5G smartphone at a pre-MWC 2019 event in Barcelona, Spain. Dubbed Huawei Mate X 5G foldable Phone, the device comes with two OLED FullView Display panels on its outer body. So, it is basically a smartphone that can be opened up as an 8-inch tablet. The company has also used a two-in-one camera that comes with Leica optics.

Although it is not the first foldable phone to be launched, Huawei Mate X is certainly the first foldable device to come with 5G connectivity. However, instead of being powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC, it houses the HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset. The Chinese smartphone brand is offering Falcon Wing Design and a FullView Display in its newly launched foldable smartphone. Here’s a look at the price and specifications of the Huawei Mate X 5G Foldable Phone:
