At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 (Barcelona Spain), Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) unveiled its 5G foldable phone, HUAWEI Mate X, redefining smartphone design with a foldable form factor. The HUAWEI Mate X features the Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge, 7nm multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000, a high-capacity 4500mAh battery and the brand new Interstellar Blue finish. When folded, the device is a huge display smartphone with a 6.6-inch screen, and when opened, it turns into a slim tablet with an 8-inch screen. The new multi-form factor is intended to revolutionise both productivity and entertainment experiences on a mobile device.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei CBG, said: “The HUAWEI Mate X’s revolutionary form factor is achieved by Huawei’s relentless effort in R&D. It represents a voyage into the uncharted. As a new breed of smartphones, HUAWEI Mate X combines 5G, foldable screen, AI and an all-new mode of interfacing to provide consumers with an unprecedented user experience. The HUAWEI Mate X will be the first key for consumers to open the door to 5G smart living.”
