Huawei Mate X, the first 5G giant and the first foldable smartphone, are expected to be available next month. The smartphone is reported to be unveiled at the Huawei Developer Conference in the coming days.
The report adds that interested buyers must wait until September to buy the device, even if the phone is introduced in a few days. Due to the complex design, the company will offer a limited amount for sale due to manufacturing and supply chain concerns.
The smartphone comes with what the company calls “Falcon Wing Design”. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, it folds completely flat and without visible space. The company claims that the hinge system used in the phone is patented and includes more than 100 components.
The Huawei Mate X has a large 8-inch display with a screen resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels and an aspect ratio of 8: 7.1 when folded out with very thin frames. When folded, it turns into a two-screen telephone: one side has a 19.5: 9 screen with a size of 6.6 inches (2480 x 1148 pixels), and the other has a 25: 9 screen with a screen Size of 6.38 inches (2480 x 892 pixels).
Under the hood, it is powered by the company’s Kirin 980 chipset with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of memory. It supports dual SIM (Nano only), but only SIM card 1 supports 5G technology. You can also exchange the second SIM card for the Huawei NM card (up to 256 GB). It ships with the 7nm Balong 5000 modem that provides 5G support for the device.
The device has two built-in batteries that provide a total capacity of 4500 mAh. Huawei also introduced the new SupercCharge fast charging technology, which supports up to 55W. With the new SuperCharge, the device can be recharged in just 30 minutes at 85% vacuum, according to the company.
