Foldable smartphones are among the new innovations that the technology industry has seen. Most of them work like a tablet which can be folded into a handset. Samsung Galaxy Fold – the foldable by the South Korean technology giant – was found to have a major flaw and had to be recalled right before its official market launch. But apart from the Galaxy Fold, we have also seen the Huawei’s Mate X, that was unveiled earlier this year at MWC 2019.
The Huawei’s Mate X is the first foldable smartphone from the Chinese electronics maker but similar to the Galaxy Fold, the device hasn’t been launched for the markets right now. Before the official launch of the Huawei’s Mate X, the handset has received China’s 3C certification which hints at its 5G capabilities. Since it has received the certification, the launch of the device is imminent. According to the listing, the Huawei’s Mate X holds a model number TAH-AN00 and there is a chance that it will come with a new power adapter with a maximum output of 65W (model HW-200200CP1).
The new power adapter of the Huawei’s Mate X points towards the possibility that it will be rated higher than the device’s 55W Super Charge capacity charger. Earlier this month, He Gang, the head of Huawei’s smartphone division shared the 5G test results of the Mate X. In the speed test, Huawei’s Mate X achieved a download speed of 1Gbps and upload speed of 100 Mbps. The 5G speed test of the Huawei’s Mate X foldable smartphone was done through China’s Unicom’s network at Shanghai Research Institute office. In addition to this, Huawei’s 5G roadmap revealed that the Huawei’s Mate X could be launched sometime around July 2019, which is just weeks away.
Talking about the specifications of the Huawei’s Mate X, we see that it sports a 6.6-inch AMOLED display on the front, while there is a 6.38-inch screen on the back. When unfolded, the device sports an 8-inch tablet-sized screen. The Mate X is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC paired with Mali-G76MP10 GPU and holds 8GB of RAM paired with 512GB of internal storage. Since it was announced prior to the US trade ban, the Huawei’s Mate X runs Android 9.0 Pie skinned with EMUI 9.1.1. The foldable smartphone packs a 4,500mAh battery with Super Charge support.
On the imaging front, the Mate X features a triple-rear camera setup which comprises of a 40MP main camera sensor paired with a 16MP sensor paired with an 8MP sensor. Apart from 5G connectivity, the Huawei’s Mate X has a Balong 5000 5G chipset which is capable of supporting 2G, 3G, and 4G.
