At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019, Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) launched the world’s fastest 5G foldable phone, Huawei Mate X, redefining smartphone design with a foldable form factor.
The Huawei Mate X features the Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge, 7 nm multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000, a high-capacity 4500 mAh battery supporting the world’s fastest 55 W Huawei SuperCharge and the brand new Interstellar Blue finish.
When folded, the device is a huge display smartphone with a 6.6-inch screen, and when opened, it turns into a slim tablet with an 8-inch screen. The new multi-form factor revolutionizes both productivity and entertainment experiences on a mobile device.
Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei CBG said, “As a new breed of smartphones, Huawei Mate X combines 5G, foldable screen, AI and an all-new mode of interfacing to provide consumers with an unprecedented user experience. The Huawei Mate X will be the first key for consumers to open the door to 5G smart living.”
The 6.6-inch dual display panel equipped on the Huawei Mate X is a true FullView display. When unfolded, it transforms into an 8-inch tablet only 5.4 mm thick. Images are displayed with great clarity and detail, and the panel itself is safe, durable and features outstanding cooling performance.
The expansive viewing area lends well to both productivity and entertainment scenarios—everything from editing a document to reading feels better on a larger screen. In addition, consumers are able to drag images from their photo gallery to their emails in split-screen mode. The larger screen allows consumers to do more with their time.
Huawei’s flagship smartphones have always come with powerful cameras, and the HUAWEI Mate X is no different. Inside the smartphone’s slim body is the latest Leica cameras, supporting the most advanced imaging features to date. The foldable design makes it possible for the camera system to play the role of both front and rear cameras.
Equipped with the world’s first 7 nm 5G multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000, the chipset has unprecedented 5G download speeds, at 4.6 Gps on the Sub-6 GHz band (theoretical). Balong 5000 is also the world’s first chipset to support both SA and NSA architectures, users will not need a device upgrade to continue enjoying 5G connectivity. The Huawei Mate X’s dual SIM feature supports both 4G and 5G.
A new, purpose-designed 4500 mAh battery is packed in Huawei Mate X’s 5.4 mm-thick body, combined with the AI smart power saving technology, fulfilling the demand for greater battery performance in the 5G era. In just 30 minutes, Huawei SuperCharge is able to charge the battery back to 85 percent.
