The Huawei Mate X, which was announced in February 2019, is Huawei’s first foldable 5D smartphone, although not the first fold-able smartphone to be featured in the market. Its release date is yet to be specified.
This new Huawei fold-able Smartphone can change from the full view 8-inch Android tablet into a 6.6-inch and 6.38-inch Smartphone. In fact the Huawei’s Full View bezel-reduced screen makes the device look even more optically appealing than the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
The Huawei Mate X is loaded with lots of excellent features like the 5G network, vast 4,500 mAh battery capacity, the powerful and new Kirin 980 chipset and so many more that will be revealed to you in this review.

In its standard size, the Mate X has an 8.0 inches display with an 86.9% screen-to-body ratio and 2200 x 2480 pixels (~414 ppi density). However in its folded mode, the it gives you a 6.6″, AMOLED, 1148 x 2480 pixels (19.5:9).

A live view of the image that is in frame appeared on both sides of the folded smart phone, allowing both the image taker and picky individual that employed the help of the image shooter to see everything.
The battery is one of the selling point of the new Huawei Mate X. This device comes with dual batteries which combine to offer you a powerful 4500mAh; obviously stronger than the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
