Huawei Mate X First Look: The Future is Foldable



This is our first look at Huawei’s foldable 5G phone, the Mate X announced just days after Samsung also unveiled their Galaxy Fold.

We’ve always known foldable phones would one day become a reality, and that time has finally come. Here at MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Huawei is taking the smartphone world’s largest stage to unveil their upcoming foldable flagship, the Mate X.

This 5G phone transforms from a 6.6 inch dual-display smartphone into a 8 inch tablet. And we got to see it up close and personal. Here’s an early first look!

UPDATE: The phone is scheduled for a mid-2019 release at a projected retail price of €2290.

    What with the Samsung Price as High as it is, This Model if Less Expensive Enough?, Could Under Cut Samsung Sales ( Like Samsung Did with the iPhone ). However The Only Trade off is Huawei are Apparently Suspect with International Spying Claim, However soon Enough Most Brands will Probably Start Knocking them Off with their on Foldable Tec. As for Here In Australia Huawei is a Banned & the Samsung is Much to Expensive for Most for the Time Being. So I've Not Much Choice to Hold Out till a 3rd manufacture Goes Foldable, Say OPPO.

    【華為Mate X】Samsung摺芒技術被偷? 賣畀中國公司獲利$1億

    三星(SAMSUNG)Galaxy Fold摺芒手機近日曝光,將智能手機推向新里程。華為也不甘落後,今日發佈了新款摺芒機Mate X,看起來比三星的更薄,宣傳更聲稱「世界上最快的5G摺芒機」。國產手機緊貼三星陸續推出,但去年11月,南韓爆出了一單官司,水源檢察署起訴11名被指向中國洩露三星OLED摺芒技術的工作人員,意味中國取得OLED技術並不「單純」。

    報道稱,涉案人員成立一間獨立的空殼公司,獲取三星的使用設備和螢幕圖紙。然後,他們在中國轉售這些文件,非法獲利155億韓圜(約1.08億港元)。這11名被告當中,有3人(包括公司CEO)已經被捕,等待法院開庭審判。

    控方提到,遭洩漏的技術為三星顯示器公司經歷6年的研發成果,其間投入38名工程師,投資更高達1,500億韓圜(約10.5億港元),甚至被指定為南韓工業技術保護法所保障的國家核心技術。

    據了解,OLED螢幕與傳統液晶顯示螢幕相比,多了輕薄、高亮度、耗電量低等特點,隨着市場快速發展,中國相關面板產業近年也在積極開發OLED面板技術。究竟中國電訊公司有否竊取技術,還需要調查後才能獲得最終答案,但若此事屬實,必將牽出中國熱炒摺芒技術的相關企業,其後果自然十分不利,國產摺芒手機或將受此影響而推遲上市。
