The tech market just can’t stay unstirred. It has not even been even a month that Samsung announced their Samsung Galaxy Fold & it already got a rival. Huawei unveiled their super luxury 5G phone with a folding screen called the Mate X. Both of the phones have eye-watering pricing & launch later.  Oh man, the folding phone war has just officially begun.

 Huawei Mate X

Huawei Mate X was introduced at the Mobile World Congress 2019 Feb 24, Sunday in Barcelona. The phone is much bigger out of the two devices & seemingly more stylish looking than Samsung. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Huawei mate X folds outward, so the outside screen is the same as the inside one. The design of these two devices is quite different. Huawei Mate X when opened measures a full 8 inches with an impressive 2480x2200 resolution, versus 7.3 inches and an unknown number of pixels on the Galaxy Fold. When the phone is folded the mate X is 6.6 inches and the Samsung Galaxy Fold is 4.6 inches. The HUAWEI Mate X is impressively thin with the Falcon Wing design The firm and durable design ensure the screen will not overstretch while folding or bulge in unfolding. Galaxy Fold has a notch.
