Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X herald foldable smartphone era

Speaking ahead of the mobile industry's biggest global event, which kicks of on Monday in Barcelona, Yu said the Huawei Mate X will have two back-to-back screens which unfold to become an eight-inch tablet display.

Huawei's Mate X has just one screen on the outside.

"A display that folds inward is, say, 100 times more advanced than a display that folds outward", said an official from a display technology company.

The Mate X has a 6.6-inch screen, which can be opened out into an eight-inch OLED screen to allow the user to read or view videos. In the triple lens setup you get a 40MP (Wide Angle Lens) + 16MP (Ultra Wide Angle Lens) + 8MP (Telephoto). Closed, the rear comes in at 2480 x 892, while the front is slightly denser at 2480 x 1148 pixels.

It's an astonishingly slender device. When unfolded, the majority of the body is 5.4mm thin, while the bar and folded thickness is 11mm. The right side of the device has a thicker grip section which houses its cameras, a fingerprint sensor, and various buttons. What this boils down to is that the Mate X is ready for the next-generation mobile broadband. When it's in smartphone form, which is likely to be more often the case than not, the outer displays are each large and vibrant.

Living up to the name of Huawei Mate series, the 2-in-1 smartphone and tablet Huawei Mate X features a 6.6-inch dual display.

February 13: Two men were quietly taken into police custody after landing at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport from Nigeria. Every former or future victim of real crime should be mad as hell about what appears to be Jussie Smollett's hoax attack story.

Huawei has also included a neat little feature called Mirror shooting that lets you see your picture as it's being taken.

The magic happens underneath the display on the back, where what Huawei is referring to as its Falcon Wing Hinge design is found. There is a bendable hinge that cover the screen on the outside when its open that resembles Lenovo's hinge used a few years ago on the Yoga laptop.

The Huawei Mate X is expected to be released by the middle of 2019, but unlikely to be released in the USA at least at first.

Huawei claims the Balong is capable of 4.6Gpbs download speeds.

Based on the images Mr. Shen shared, this handset actually resembles the Huawei Mate X quite a bit.

Earlier today, news outlet Asia Crypto Today reported that they had heard from anonymous sources that "the Enjin Wallet has been chosen as the partners for the new flagship phone", and they referred to this as "the biggest partnership in crypto history".
