Problems with Foldable Phones That Can Not Be Ignored

Huawei unveils Mate X folding phone to rival Samsung Galaxy Fold Huawei's Mate X foldable phone looks way better than Samsung's Galaxy Fold

The Mate X is set to compete with Samsung's Galaxy Fold, which was announced less than a week before. Samsung has the Galaxy Fold, yesterday Huawei introduced the Mate X, TCL revealed some foldable dummies at MWC 2019, and now Oppo is jumping the hype train.

I was able to test the Galaxy S10 5G phone over at Qualcomm's booth, which is where Ericsson tech provided the 5G coverage.

The Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X sit themselves at the front of their respective booths, flaunting their folds but very much as a hands-off experience.

Even then, the Huawei Mate X is only 5.4mm thick when opened, and that's thinner than the newest iPad Pro.

And it's not only Huawei, Apple and Samsung in the running to release foldable devices, in fact, Xiaomi, Motorola, LG and Oppo all have developments for these smartphones.

The Huawei Mate X costs €2,299, which converts to about $2,600, £2,000, AU$4,770 with 512GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM, while Huawei has hinted that there will be other variants. "The new device has nothing to envy to Samsung's latest Galaxy Fold announcement".

"But we are at the stone age of devices with flexible displays; it's a whole new phase of experimentation after the sea of smartphone sameness we have seen for the last decade". Peradventure you want to take a selfie, you've got a 6.38-inch display having a resolution of 2480 x 892 pixels serving as a viewfinder.

Like Huawei's Mate X, the phone is likely not coming to the USA soon: Don't forget, ZTE had trouble with the U.S. when it was temporarily banned from importing components from American suppliers.

Samsung has offered a more detailed glimpse of its forthcoming £1,700 foldable smartphone in action. The publication further stated that the Phone XS Max that is also being dubbed as the iPhone 11 Max will be equipped with triple rear cameras.

When folded, you get two displays- a 6.6-inch bezel-less front screen and 6.38-inch rear panel that could be prone to scratches.

Foldable phones are completely new to the market and that means that in time they will have their own quality control issues.

The Galaxy Fold uses a traditional 4.6-inch smartphone screen, with a second, larger display housed inside its body, which opens up to form a 7.3-inch AMOLED Infinity Flex display.

Here is the full video showing how Samsung Galaxy Fold transition from a phone to tablet works.

Mate X is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 processor and Balong 5000 modem that allows it to deliver 5G speeds.

So, as if we didn't have enough to keep up with when it comes to technology, apparently we now need a folding smartphone.
