Huawei wants his turn in the foldable projector on the phone, and with Mate X he makes a convincing – but expensive – audition. The main competition: Samsung's Samsung Galaxy Fold phone, which has two screens, a total of six cameras, and unfolds in the center to open in a 7.3-inch tablet. Mate X of Huawei – which pronounces "former" rather than "ten" – has three ways to use on an 8-inch screen, three cameras and an interesting design that gives you a comfortable base for one-handed use.
2300 euros Mate X (which turns into $ 2,600, £ 2,000 or AU $ 3660) is also ready for 5G, while $ 1
Huawei's vision for Mate X is from the phone you most often use in your "closed" position but opens when you want to have fun or be more productive. On the back there is a screen that can be useful for making the seams: The four rear cameras on the phone are encoded with Leica
The "main" screen configuration is a 6.6-inch display that Huawei thinks you will use at -much. Expand it out to get an 8-inch OLED display from end to end (but there is also a camera). When folded, the back has a slightly smaller 6.4-inch screen and a sidebar with an array of rear chambers. In an open position, the sidebar turns into a handle that Huawei calls the "Falcon Wing" design for its inflatable shape. The idea is to hold Mate X with one hand and use your other hand to touch and drag. Fold the phone again closed and one side aligns with the handle to give a flat look. And yes, there is still a folding hinge.
My colleague Roger Cheng had time with the phone, noting that although the phone is large, he feels light, but it will definitely be a two-handed experience. Here's his thoughts: Matthew X closes a flush, as promised, with a little distance between the two sides of the phone. The folding of the phone is a bit scary, and the movement is a bit stiff, but Huawei's consumer director Richard Yu says it has been tested for 100,000 times. When it is closed, the phone knows where you are from the device. This will automatically turn sides when you face it.
For such a great device it feels pretty bright. The backbone of the camera works as a good ergonomic handle when unfolding. But luck, folding him with one hand – I almost dropped it. When it is folded, it is felt a bit thick. There is a huge amount that is inevitable.
The apps seem to run smoothly. As with Galaxy Fold, the phone automatically switches your app to a larger display when you expand the screen. I saw CNN, Chrome and YouTube on the device, all running smoothly and taking advantage of the bigger screen.
The demonstration device they show has three cameras. But the finished phone will have a fourth camera that will be shown with P30 next month.
Huawei also made a case that will cover Xe X sides and back in folded shape, leaving an open window for the 6.6-inch display.

Mate X has the Galaxy Fold ahead when it comes to battery capacity, with a capacity of 4,500 mAh, divided between two batteries, one on both sides of the folding screen. Samsung Galaxy Fold has a total capacity of 4.380 mAh between its two lobbies. As we know through testing, raw capacity gives you an edge, but we will not know who's better in real life as we try them side by side.
