Huawei Mate X Foldable Phone Leaked Early At MWC 2019

Just a few days ago, Samsung just revealed its very first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold. Now, thanks to a promotional banner, we have our first sneak peek at Huawei’s take on the foldable smartphone, the possibly soon-to-launch Huawei Mate X.

The leaked happened on the eve of the 2019 Mobile World Congress trade show, and came from Twitter user @Gimme2pm

As can be seen on the banner, Huawei’s design is entirely different from Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. Instead of folding in half with its tablet screen inwards, much like a book, the Huawei Mate X folds the screen outwards instead, meaning that there is only one large screen on the phone instead of two like on Samsung’s.

Of course, a lot still remains to be seen, such as the pricing details of the phone though we can already see from the banner that the Mate X will be packing 5G. On their Twitter, Huawei has also made a post teasing their newest foldable phone.

Huawei will be hosting a press conference on February 24, 2019, where it will be announcing a whole slew of products under its belt, including the Mate X. Let us hope that it will be able to stand toe to toe with Samsung’s iteration of a foldable smartphone.

With Samsung, and now Huawei, officially releasing their foldable smartphones, Xiaomi, the ball’s in your court now.
