Huawei's answer to the foldable competition is named "Mate X," according to a leaked picture showing the Chinese telecom giant's advertisement at the MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Spain.
The ad claimed that Huawei Mate X is the world's fastest 5G foldable phone, with pictures showing the smartphone as folded, half-unfolded and unfolded.
Similar to Flexpai's design, the screen faces outward when the phone is folded. This is different from Samsung's approach, which folds the screen inward and puts a smaller second screen on the back of the Galaxy Fold.
It's worth noting that the Mate X's black "bezels" around the screen seems thinner than those of its rivals.
The following information are unconfirmed rumors. The phone is said to be equipped with Huawei's own Kirin 980 core chip, which also powers the company's latest Mate 20 smartphone. The 5G connection chip will also be made by Huawei itself, named Baron 5000.
A total of 512 gigabytes of storage and 10 gigabytes of memory can also be expected.
Huawei has scheduled a live MWC event at 21:00 BJT, which is 14:00 local time in Barcelona.
We at CGTN will bring you the live broadcast on our digital platforms. Please stay tuned to witness the unveiling of Huawei's foldable 5G handset.
