Huawei Mate X is being advertised as the world’s slimmest foldable phone. While in the smartphone world, this boast might seem dated, the foldable phone is still in its infancy. Samsung Galaxy Fold has been a thick phone, which makes this boast worthwhile as well. The phone is about 11mm thick, which is quite low compared to the 17mm of Samsung Galaxy Fold. Plus, the camera stack and USB Type-C port are all sitting in flush with this model. The Mate X is a bit hefty but as hefty as you might expect. It was quite light in tablet mode, and while it did gain some weight in the closed mode, it is still excellent. The screen orientation does lag a bit, but Huawei is working on it as of now. The display flexes a full 180-degree, and then, it latches shut. There is a button on the top, below the cameras which unhinge the screen. It helps the phone fold outwards. The mechanical feedback is quite amazing on this Foldable phone.
The Mate X arrives with an 8-inch display which is divided into two different panels when the device is folded. One of it is a 6.6-inch which serves as the main smartphone display, and the other is the 6.38 inch on the rear. The front 6.6-inch screen has a massive resolution of 2480 x 1148 and has an aspect ratio of 19:5:9. It is complemented by the back screen which measures about 6.38-inches, has a resolution of 2480×892 and an aspect ratio of 25:9. Videos on the 8-inch tablet screen are fabulous as well. The pictures are crisp and bright, along with deep blacks present. Since the aspect ratio is almost a square, you can also turn the unfolded Mate X vertically or horizontally, and the video will fit the screen without trouble.
Huawei Mate X does not pull back in any place. The Mate X is advertised as the world’s fastest foldable 5G phone. The phone has a lot of power inside it – it comes with a Kirin 980 processor along with a Balong 5000 modem placed on board. The performance will be smooth and it will make the 5G experience amazing if 5G provides that much stability in the first place. IT also uses a quarter of 5G antennas to connect with the 5G networks. So, the phone is designed to make the most use of 5G technology. Gaming and app-switching will not be a problem with this power under the hood.
The Mate X sidebar hosts the Leica cameras which help the screen to go from edge to edge. You won’t find any camera cuttings here. The lens can adjust to any orientation, and that means it will help you take selfies and photos from any angle. The camera app is efficient and can be used for Portrait Mode and video shootings. The secondary screen has some interesting work – it acts as a mirror if you are taking a picture of someone else. It turns out to be quite useful. The camera is carried on a strip in which Huawei crams the processor, 5G modem and the lenses. The quality of the lens remains the same as Huawei Mate 20, offering 40MP wide-angle lens and an 8MP telephoto shooter.
The Mate X arrives with two batteries, both of which adds up to 4,500 mAh. That is a massive battery and can quite adequate for the display and power that the phone comes in. It can hold well in the long run, that is, giving you about 1 and a half day’s worth of juice. Plus, Huawei comes with fast charging tech, arrives with a 55-watt fast charger that allows you to get from 0 to 85% within 30 minutes!
Huawei Mate X is an exceptional phone. It is not just a foldable phone, but it comes as a foldable phone with a difference. It is slim and efficient. It has excellent cameras, along with a lot of unique features. Plus, the phone does not shy from providing a fantastic processing speed, along with 5G benefits. While Samsung Galaxy Fold may have attracted the media limelight, Huawei Mate X might turn out to be the phone that genuinely beats Galaxy Fold and defines the future smartphone market.
