Huawei unveils a smartphone, ready to use on 5G mobile phone networks. Even though the US is campaigning to prevent the Chinese group from accessing its network, 5G for security reasons but company aims to make difference.
The company said it is going on the front in deploying 5G networks, hopeful for ultra-fast internet speeds for consumers and businesses.
As Mobile World Congress (MWC), the world’s largest mobile industry event, opens on Monday in Barcelona, Richard Yu, head of Huawei’s consumer department, said his Mate X smartphone will have two screens can be folded back-to-back and turn, once opened into 8-inch tablet.
According to him, the Mate X will be able to download a video of 1 gigabit in three seconds and it will be marketed later in the year at a price of 2.607 dollars.
5G and folding screen is without any doubts are the two popular elements of this MWC conference. In the Barcelona time yesterday and this morning, OPPO and Xiaomi announced their own 5G mobile phone products. Now Huawei unveils these two elements. Mate X is Huawei’s first 5G and a folding screen mobile phone.
Samsung Electronics also announced that it will launch in April a folding smartphone compatible with future 5G networks and costing nearly 2,000 dollars. The device will have a screen of 4.6 inches in the folded position and 7.3 inches once opened.
Unlike the Galaxy Fold that Samsung introduced, Huawei put the flexible screen on the outside, which means that it has one external screen compared to the Galaxy Fold.
The user sees half of the screen. If you need a larger screen, just flip it outwards. Compared to Samsung, it will not leave a breakage in the middle when it is combined.
As Huawei is under the close inspection of US that fear the company will be used by the Chinese government for espionage purposes. They have asked their partners not to use Huawei’s technologies.
Like Samsung, Huawei also expects its folding technology to create a stir.
