Earlier, we posted articles about the new Huawei Mate X, the brand’s first foldable smartphone/tablet with 5G capabilities. And just a few minutes ago, at Huawei’s event at MWC in Barcelona, the device has finally made its official debut, albeit a slight veil of secrecy. So let’s talk about what is known, so far.

First was an ad, and now, a photo of what seems to be an actual working unit of Huawei’s foldable smartphone has surfaced, prior to its official launch. The image shows the device slightly folded, with its thin bezels and vivid display. Compared to Samsung’s offering, this one looks undeniably more sleek, and refined. The Mate X is rumored to sport both a 6.6-inch and a 6.2-inch display, and measures 8-inches when in tablet form. It’s said to be powered by the Kirin 980, and also boasts four rear cameras (presumably what we’ll find in the upcoming P30 Pro) and 2 front snappers.

Ahead of Huawei’s press event at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona, Spain, a banner of the foldable phone from the brand appeared on a tweet. The photo reveals the name of their foldable phone, the Huawei Mate X. Twitter user @gimme2pm tweeted the photo showing workers installing a display banner containing the foldable device. Along with the name of the device, the banner reads “World’s first foldable 5G phone”. https://twitter.com/gimme2pm/status/1098995332233469953 Unlike the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Fold, the Huawei Mate X has a single display that wraps around the exterior on the phone. When closed, we’d only be using a section of the folded display. It is expected that the Mate X will feature a high-end camera. We’ll just have to wait and see, later at 9 PM at Huawei’s press event for the full features and specs of the Mate X. Source
