This design makes much more sense to me than Samsung's. Everything is better thought out: you have a huge screen when folded (and this means maybe 80% of the time, while on Samsung you are stuck with a measly 4.6" screen and huge top and bottom bezels), it is miles thinner than Samsung, no gap when folded, no notch, no useless low-quality selfie cameras when you can just use the main cameras due to the flexible screen. It is simply much better. The only downside of the design is the (probably plastic) screen which is exposed. That smart Huawei case is mandatory. Hopefully included ! :) However, the price is like 50% higher than Samsung...

True, i can't believe people think this Huawei garbage is good, It looks like Flex Pai that was introduced last year.

Price is definitely too high but the Mate X feels so hi tech and futuristic more so than the Galaxy F. Hopefully Huawei gives the Mate X pen support like the Mate 20 X.

That's the stupidiest idea ever. Put the most vulnerable part of the screen on the outside

Looks nice, but the design of the Gfold looks better except for the front cameras.
