Huawei has unveiled its 5G foldable smartphone named Huawei Mate X.

The Huawei consumer business group unveiled five smart devices, including Huawei Mate X, on Feb. 24, the day before the opening of the world's largest mobile expo MWC 2019 held in Barcelona, ​​Spain.

With Samsung electronics’ foldable smartphone Galaxy Fold that has been unveiled in San Francisco, the disclosure of Huawei Mate X is going to lead to a new era of foldable smartphone competition.

Unlike in-folding type of Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X does not fold exactly in half, but is an out-folding type that has a bigger risk of screen breakage.

Meanwhile, Huawei has equipped the new phone with its Ballon 5000 chipset to support 5G and said, "Huawei Mate X supports both NSA and SA network. This is the world's fastest 5G smartphone prepared for the future."

Huawei X Mate, which was revealed by Huawei CEO Richard Yu on Feb. 24 (local time) in Barcelona, ​​Spain, is priced at 2,299 euros.
