How to hide display hole on the Galaxy S10 smartphone

  • Huawei announces $3,425 foldable display Mate X smartphone

Today, Huawei released its first television commercial for the Mate X. The ad doesn't show any features of the phone other than the folding capabilities of the device.

"The Huawei Mate X is a step into unknown territory", confirmed Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's Consumer Business Group. The Huawei handset is larger in both modes, and thinner when closed. Folded, meanwhile, the phone is 11mm thick.

The biggest advantage to the way it device folds in half is that the two halves actually sit flush, with 6.6-inch and 6.38-inch displays on the front and back of the phone respectively. When unfolded face-out to become more tablet-like, the screen size increases to 8-inches. The other differentiating factor is of course the $2,600 price-tag, which asks $600 more than the Samsung equivalent.

The Galaxy S10 was announced last week and with this phone set to launch in the coming weeks and that means prices for the current S9 continue to tumble. For example, Samsung is pricing their Galaxy Fold at US$1,980 and Huawei is pricing their Mate X at a cool US$2,600.

Foldable devices mark the "biggest change" ever in the smartphone industry, according to Huawei's mobile boss.


When unfolded, the phone has quite the large screen.

Now, speaking of that cover display, we believe the Galaxy Fold's display cover is a bit too small and could have been larger, but we can see the logic behind Samsung's philosophy.

Not to be outdone by rival Samsung, Huawei unveiled their own foldable smartphone at MWC19. While the Galaxy Fold folds inwards and features an additional display on the front, the Mate X just has one display and features back-to-back foldable design. Here Huawei first proclaims it's able to charge the phone at 55W of power, reaching 85% of capacity from empty in just 30 minutes. It's barely March and we already have a third contender on the scene with Huawei's unveiling of the Mate X. Shen says the design was created in-house, but we doubt any two people briefed with "design a folding smartphone" would come up with something so similar without outside influence.
