Description

The Mate X is Huawei's first foldable smartphone with a display that folds in half. At its centerpiece, an OLED screen measures 6.6 inches in diagonal when folded, but offers twice the screen area when fully unfolded. The phone also stands out with support for 5G networks and for Huawei's 55W fast charging. On the hardware side, a Kirin 980 rocks the show, along with 8GB of RAM and the plentiful 512GB of storage. And the camera arrangement offers all the features one might wish for: a 40MP main shooter backed by a super wide-angle camera, a telephoto lens for zooming, and a ToF sensor for better depth perception.
